Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) is the American Lung Association's voluntary smoking cessation program for high school students. Over the ten-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-Tprogram either quit smoking or cut back.N-O-T is recognized by several federal agencies:

The American Lung Association in Utah trains school counselors, nurses, teachers and others to implement N-O-T at their high schools or youth-based organizations. We also provide ongoing support to facilitators and FUNDING to schools for course curriculum and materials, student incentives, and to attend the annual summit meeting.
