Not on Tobacco (NOT) – A Proven Teen Smoking and Vaping Cessation Program

American Lung Association, 2022

NOT® is designed with teenagers in mind and addresses issues that are specifically important to them. It takes a holistic approach with each session using different interactive learning strategies that can be applied and practiced in everyday life. NOT encourages a VOLUNTARY change for youth ages 14 to 19 and is an evidence-based program with an impressive success rate, with approximately 90 percent of teens who participate in the program cutting back or quitting tobacco altogether. Post-program, Not On Tobacco program youth also have been shown to have better grades, higher motivation, fewer absences, better relationships with teachers, and fewer school tobacco use policy violations. NOT is offered through the American Lung Association. Facilitators are trained online for a nominal fee. If financial assistance is needed, contact Tobacco Free Rhode Island.
