Ninety percent of adult smokers began smoking as teenagers. Their addiction patterns were set even before they were old enough to legally buy a pack of cigarettes. At least 3.1 million adolescents are current smokers. Thirty percent of these teenage smokers will die of smoking-related diseases. N-O-T is a state-of-the-art teen smoking cessation, school-based program. Teens are taught how to manage nicotine withdrawal and prevent relapse by using a life-skills approach. Teens learn how to apply what they are learning in the sessions to other aspects of their lives. All this is presented in a teen-friendly, gender-sensitive curriculum. By utilizing N-O-T, schools can provide an educational, total-health program to help students quit smoking. Schools can initiate this program by having a program facilitator trained by the ALA.
