Between 2017 and 2018, there was an increase of over 1.5 million students who reported that they vaped. In December 2018, the US Surgeon General declared teen vaping a public health epidemic. To help combat this, we have rolled out an updated version of our Nicotine 101 course!
Nicotine 101 addresses the use of nicotine in its many forms, including cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and hookah, but places an extra emphasis on vaping. The course explores an individual’s nicotine use, reasons for use, and consequences of use. In addition, it addresses the following:
Personal perceptions of peer usage
Reasons for choosing not to use
Effects of nicotine on general health, the lungs, and the brain
Immediate & physical side effects of smoking
Dependence, triggers, and cravings
This course will also have new features including follow-along videos, personalized feedback reports, optional follow up texts and much more! It can be used as both a prevention and intervention course. Non-users will be reaffirmed in their choices. Users will be guided through a personalized plan for change. Individuals will finish the course informed about the effects nicotine has on their body, the risk of addiction, and the impact it has on developing brains.
