Teen Smoking & Drug Use


Teens face potentially damaging situations every day. Whether it’s at school, home, with friends, online, etc. In cases of peer pressure, teens are more likely to turn to alcohol abuse, drug abuse, or even more addicting and deadly – tobacco use. According to the CDC, cigarettes cause about one in five deaths each year in the United States. That adds up to about 480,000 deaths a year, and this includes second-hand smoke exposure.   Visit QuitDay.org to learn how to help your teen quit smoking.
