Our latest thinking 

Video Component

Youth vaping has skyrocketed – 

 

and while prevention programs exist ...

 

many teens haven’t been offered information about quitting that resonates with them — or the resources they need.

 

We sought to change that with Live Vape Free.

 

Building on what works from tobacco quit programs ...

 

and incorporating evidence-based practices and adolescent psychology,

 

Live Vape Free is designed for adults and teens.

 

The online course helps adults learn how to have effective conversations about vaping

 

and the interactive program, which includes texting with a coach, meets teens where they are with engaging content and support —

 

and tailored messaging that helps them find their “why” for quitting and shows them how to quit.

 

Together with our partners,

 

we’ll help stop the vaping epidemic.
