This powerful video and print package is an inspirational tool that will help encourage students to take the next step in deciding to quit smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco. The video highlights a peer support group of real teens who talk about the extremely addictive power of nicotine and share their stories of trying to quit. These plain-speaking young people make it clear that kicking nicotine takes commitment, a plan, and hard work. Their message is reinforced by graphic interviews with laryngectomies (neck breathers) whose stories serve as vivid reminders of what people sacrifice for their tobacco use.
