Youth Cessation Programs

  • The quitline is a free service that offers one-on-one immediate support. It is staffed by quit smoking coaches who can provide you with helpful information, advice and support as they walk you through a step by step plan to quit. To sign up or for more information, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669).

The Address Youth Cessation Training (ACT) is a one-hour course that provides an overview for healthcare professionals, school personnel and community members in youth-supportive roles to conduct a brief intervention for teens who use tobacco, especially those at high-risk. Based on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Youth Tobacco Cessation: Considerations for Clinicians, the course outlines the steps of Ask, Counsel, Treat, and provides guidance, support and best practices for effectively delivering ACT as a brief intervention for adolescents who identify as tobacco users, including e-cigarettes. 

You can register to complete this free on-demand training on Lung.Training/courses/act-to-address-youth-cessation. For questions, email NOT@lung.org.

Intervention for Nicotine Dependence: Education, Prevention, Tobacco and Health (INDEPTH) is a new, convenient alternative to suspension or citation that helps schools and communities address the teen vaping problem in a more supportive way. Instead of solely focusing on punitive measures, INDEPTH is an interactive program that teaches students about nicotine dependence, establishing healthy alternatives and how to kick the unhealthy addiction that got them in trouble in the first place. Visit INDEPTH for more details or contact INDEPTH@lung.org for questions.

The American Lung Association’s NOT for Me, is a self-guided, mobile-friendly web-based program that gives teens the resources to quit vaping, smoking or chewing tobacco products. This new digital modality is based off our Not On Tobacco (N-O-T)® youth cessation in-person group program curriculum which has 25 years of proven success in helping young tobacco users gain strength, health and freedom from nicotine addiction and tobacco dependency. 

NOT for Me offers a six-week program including eight self-paced sessions which may be utilized by youth remotely to best serve those teens who may not have access to a local Not On Tobacco (N-O-T)® program facilitator or feel comfortable participating in a group format.

American Lung Association’s NOT for Me web-based program is available at no cost at www.NOTforMe.org. Additional information, including a brief introductory overview is available at www.NOTforMe.org. For questions, contact INDEPTH@lung.org.

  • The Not On Tobacco group (N-O-T) is the American Lung Association’s voluntary tobacco cessation program taught by trained and certified adults for teens ages 14-19. Over the 10-week program, participants learn to identify their reasons for tobacco use, healthy alternatives to tobacco use and people who will support them in their efforts to quit. Visit Not On Tobacco for more details or contact Not@lung.org for questions.
  • QuitSTART is a free app made for teens who want to quit smoking.

The app is free for download on iTunes and Android. This free program is designed and run by the National Cancer Institute. For more information, visit teen.smokefree.gov.
  • Smokefree Teen is a web-based program designed and run by the National Cancer Institute to help you understand the decisions you make — especially the decision to quit smoking — and how those decisions fit into your life. Visit teen.smokefree.gov to learn more or sign up for this free program.
