NOT ON TOBACCO Quit Smoking Program

This quit smoking program is called NOT ON TOBACCO. It’s a free 10 week quit-smoking program that is held at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. For the program you will come to weekly group meetings that last an hour. During that time you will work on quitting smoking with the help of a group of other teens wanting to quit and a quit-smoking facilitator.

There is also an opportunity to participate in research while going through the program. You DO NOT have to participate in any research to be in the NOT program. If you do choose to participate in the research, you will be scheduled for a pre-program appointment (within the 2 weeks before the program starts) at the hospital.

When the program is over, you will be scheduled for a post-program appointment where you will do the same tasks/tests as the pre-program appointment.

At 3 and 6 months after the program you will be asked to schedule a follow up appointment where you will be tested for cigarette smoking and fill out a timeline.

You will be compensated for your time in the research study.
