Detailed Description:

The investigators reformatted two group smoking cessation programs (the NOT program of the American Lung Association and Kicking Butts), both of which involve 50 minute sessions delivered once weekly, into a program that could be delivered during school lunch periods (25-30 minutes) twice weekly. Smoking status was subsequently assessed over the 12 month period following the intervention,
