""Smoking Cessation""

Introduction and DiscussionEdit

The American Lung Association states that each day, nearly 6,000 children under 18 years of age start smoking; of these, nearly 2,000 will become regular smokers, and approximately 90 percent of smokers begin smoking before the age of 21. In addition, it is as hard for teenagers to quit as it is for adults. Given this information, how would you modify your smoking cessation pitch to accommodate the mindset of a teenager?

Furthermore, what are you opinions of providing traditional treatments for smoking cessation (i.e. nicotine replacement) to teenagers, especially those who aren't old enough to be smoking legally. How do we help this population quit?
