The American Lung Association recently launched NOT for Me, a self-guided, mobile-friendly web-based program that gives teens the resources to quit vaping, smoking or chewing tobacco products. This new digital modality is based off the Not On Tobacco (N-O-T)® youth cessation in-person group program curriculum which has 25 years of proven success in helping young tobacco users gain strength, health and freedom from nicotine addiction and tobacco dependency.
NOT for Me offers a six-week program including eight self-paced sessions which may be utilized by youth remotely to best serve those teens who may not feel comfortable participating in a group format. The program is available at no cost.
Truth Initiative partnered with the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center to launch BecomeAnEX in 2008 as a free digital resource to help tobacco users quit. This resource includes an active social community, text and email messaging support, expert guidance and interactive quitting tools.
