Helping Young People Quit Vaping by Helping Each Other
Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)
The youth e-cigarette use epidemic created an urgent need for resources to help young people quit vaping. Truth Initiative filled that need by developing a first-of-its-kind program called This is Quitting, which has enrolled over 40,000 teens/young adults since launching in January 2019. Backed by science and powered by people, This is Quitting delivers cessation support by leveraging the advice young people want to give each other, plus evidence-based approaches for treating nicotine addiction. Participants will learn what e-cigarettes are, why they’re dangerous for young people, and innovative ways to help young people quit.
