Teen Smokers: Reasons to Quit

Overview

Maybe you started using tobacco to fit in with your friends. Maybe family members smoke or chew. Whatever the reason you started using tobacco, there are lots of reasons to stop.

  • You'll save money. Add up how much you spend on tobacco each week or month. What else could you do with that money?
  • You'll live a healthier life. And you might set a good example for friends or siblings.
  • Your hair, clothes, and breath will not smell of smoke.

Are any of these your reasons? Thinking about why you want to quit is a great first step.
