Quitting Is A Smart Decision

Jumpstart their success with the
My Life, My Quit™ program

Students spend most of their days in school. That’s why it’s a great place to start helping them quit vaping or using other commercial tobacco products. From creating smoke-free schools to connecting them with free, confidential programs like My Life, My Quit, you can advocate and take action today.

Take Steps To Stamp It Out

Peer pressure, mental health issues and academic stress are just a few of the factors that contribute to teen commercial tobacco use and vaping. Work on strengthening current school tobacco policy, and consider using signage, curricula, parent resource guides and social media to raise awareness about the harms of nicotine, especially on brains that are still developing.
