Smokefree-Teen

When you were younger, the adults in your life made most of your decisions for you. But that’s changed. You make most of your decisions now. You’re in control of the direction your life takes. So, where is your life going? What do you want to be? What do you value? These are huge questions, with no easy answers. Sections of this website can help you sort things out.

This site is designed and run by people at the National Cancer Institute. We want you to take control of your health. And that’s why we developed this site. We’re NOT going to tell you what to do. This site is designed to help you understand the decisions you make—especially the decision to quit smoking—and how those decisions fit into your life.
