7-session online program helps teens quit tobacco and vaping

About 90% of teens who participated in a N-O-T program nationally have either quit or reduced their use of tobacco, according to the American Lung Association.

N-O-T: Not on Tobacco, an American Lung Association program led by trained Norton Children’s Prevention & Wellness facilitators, is helping kids in the Louisville area quit tobacco and vaping.

About 90% of teens who participated in a N-O-T program nationally have either quit or reduced their use of tobacco, according to the American Lung Association.

This evidence-based program is for teens 14 to 19 and meets weekly in 50-minute sessions for seven weeks. The program covers the health effects of vaping, smoking and other tobacco products. New seven-week courses start every month.

Rather than modify adult cessation programs, N-O-T was designed for teenagers to address issues important to them. Strategies are based on social cognitive theory of behavior change.

Topics for each session include:

  • Reasons for quitting
  • Why I smoke/vape
  • Nicotine addiction and triggers
  • Effects of smoking/vaping
  • Physical, psychological and social benefits of quitting
  • Quitting nicotine use
  • Overcoming obstacles to quitting
  • How to deal with stress
  • Myths of Big Tobacco
  • Staying committed to quitting
