Talking to teens about smoking

teens about smoking
Each day, about 1,000 American teens begin to smoke, but a new study could change that statistic.

The study is in next month’s issue of Pediatrics and finds doctors who talked to their young patients about the dangers of smoking had a positive impact and in many cases influenced them to quit.

And furthermore, those teenagers who were examined by a physician were more likely to try to quit, more than those who never saw a doctor.
