Living TOBACCO-FREE wants to keep the next generation tobacco-free. Tobacco use comes with a deadly price tag. Cigarette smoking alone kills more than 480,000 adults a year in the United States and 9,000 adults a year in Massachusetts. Smoking among Massachusetts residents is directly responsible for $4.08 billion each year in annual health care costs.
To help ensure the next generation doesn’t bear the burdens of tobacco, Living TOBACCO-FREE educates youth and young adults about smoking and tobacco in all its forms, including e-cigarettes and vaping. We also work for positive changes in state laws and local health regulations.
Educating Youth about Vaping and Tobacco
Living TOBACCO-FREE educates youth by working with community coalitions, youth groups and school health staff. We teach young people that tobacco products contain nicotine, are highly addictive and are harmful to their health. We tell them the truth about big tobacco companies: how they spend millions of dollars every day trying to gain new young customers and market sweet, cheap, and addictive products to attract them.
Living TOBACCO-FREE works with community and the state-wide groups to advocate for changes in laws and regulations that make it easier for young people to stay away from tobacco products, including vapes.
