More Information

Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) is the American Lung Association's voluntary smoking cessation program for teens 14-19. Over the 10-week program, participants learn to identify their reasons for smoking, healthy alternatives to tobacco use, and people who will support them in their efforts to quit.

The best thing about N-O-T? It really works. N-O-T is a structured approach to smoking cessation based on the social cognitive theory. Studies of 12,000 teens participating in the N-O-T program nationally found that approximately 90 percent of the teens enrolled in the N-O-T program either quit smoking or cut back.

In Colorado, NOT has successfully helped teens quit cigarettes, chew, and e-cigarettes. Here is a link to the results of the 2016-17 school year.

The American Lung Association provides:

  • Free Facilitator Certification training
  • All curriculum materials
  • Swaggy incentives for youth participants
  • Funds to support implementation
  • $100 thank you stipend for each group facilitated
