Primary, secondary, and tertiary specific aims are to answer the following questions about interactive, Internet-based tobacco control intervention directed towards 10th-graders:
- Smoking Prevention (primary): Does the intervention result in a lower incidence of smoking initiation compared to standard care?
- Smoking Cessation (primary): Does the intervention result in higher rates of smoking cessation compared to standard care?
- Reduction of Spit Tobacco Use (secondary): Does the intervention have an impact on spit tobacco use compared to standard care?
- Stages of Change (tertiary): Does the intervention have an impact on progression through the stages of smoking and spit tobacco acquisition and cessation compared to standard care?
- Mediating Variables (tertiary): How are mediating variables associated with tobacco-use onset and cessation?
- Testing Predictors: Investigate established and recently elucidated predictors of susceptibility to smoking at baseline and 12-month follow-up.
- Develop/Validate Spit Tobacco Measures: Investigate predictors of susceptibility of spit tobacco use at baseline and 12-month follow-up
- Testing Measures Across Race/Ethnicity: Explore predictors of susceptibility to smoking at baseline and 12-month follow-up to determine whether predictors differ among White, African-American, and Hispanic students.
