Adolescent Smoking Cessation Smoking Cessation Thesis

Excerpt from Thesis :



Community Philosophy

The current community philosophy regarding smoking among teens is foundational to the development of a comprehensive risk behavior intervention standard. Smoking behaviors among teens in the community are highly visible, while other risk behaviors are more hidden, it is therefore clear that smoking cessation in this age group could prove a substantial beginning in both the secondary prevention of long-term adult smoking and for the overall goal of reducing concurrent risk taking behaviors among teens.
