Brief Summary:

Study Hypotheses:

  1. adolescents in intervention schools who are given Triple A program plus ASP will show more awareness in regards to cigarettee smoking health effects and less nicotine dependencethan those in the control schools who are given Triple A alone.
  2. adolescents with asthma in intervention schools who are given Triple A program plus ASP will show less asthma symptoms and better control than those in the control schools who are given Triple A alone.
  3. adolescent smokers and passive smokers will exhibit higher levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in their breath than those who are not active or passive smokers.
  4. there is a positive correlation between self-report questions regarding student smoking status and levels of CO in their breath

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Adolescent Asthma Action
Adolescent Asthma Action in Jordan (TAJ) Plus the added class smoke free pledge will be implemented in high schools in Jordan and will be compared to the TAJ alone for its efficacy in decreasing smoking rates, lowering CO1 levela and nicotine dependence.
Behavioral: TAJ Plus (Adolescent Asthma Action in Jordan) Plus the added class smoke free pledge
Its is a school-based peer-led asthma and smoking prevention program that aims at improving asthma control and lowering nicotine dependence among smokers.
Other Name: Triple A in Jordan (TAJ)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. nicotine dependence level [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Self-administered nicotine dependence scale will be used in order to measure nicotine dependence level for adolescent smokers and passive smokers

  2. Asthma Contol level [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    The pictorial version of the asthma control test will be measured for adolescents with asthma and recent wheezing


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Carbon monoxide (CO) breath test [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    CO levels will be tested in adolescents' breath

  2. knowledge about health effects of cigarettee smoking [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
