Did you know: That the average age of a new smoker in New York State is 13 years old?.

Do you know: that stores located near schools contain nearly 3 times the amount of tobacco promotions? The more kids see tobacco, the more likely they are to start smoking.

As a mother of a teenage boy, this is something that scares me the most. Yes, we talk a lot about its consequences and how much smoking can affect his life in the long run. But, again peer pressure is real when you are in high school.

From the first time my kid started to talk about how his friend owns an e-cigarette. I knew the next question was going to be “Can I have one?” That would be a completely negative response.

But, I only realized me saying “NO” wasn’t going to be enough when I know that he goes to the store by himself and all the tobacco propaganda will be right in front of him.

Seen Enough Tobacco

I believe the “Seen Enough Tobacco” campaign is important to my family and to all families with teenagers. These kids are so impressionable and the more they are inundated with tobacco product messaging the more they might think it is OK to smoke.
