Sounding Board: Youth and Tobacco

This Thursday on Sounding Board (October 11, 2012 at 10am), we’re talking about youth and tobacco.

We often see young people smoking or using tobacco in our communities – and maybe even in our own homes. Let’s start a conversation on how to stop youth tobacco use in the places we live.

  • At what age do you see youth beginning to smoke (or using other tobacco products)?
  • What are the consequences of starting at an early age?
  • What resources are available to prevent or quit smoking or tobacco use?
  • How are children influenced to smoke or use tobacco?
  • How can we offer a more positive influence?
