Evaluation of Adolescent Smoking Cessation Programs
Evaluation of Adolescent Smoking Cessation Programs

The purpose of this study was to determine if a school-based multi-session group smoking cessation program is more effective than a single session group program.

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,
