Truth Initiative Launches Text Message E-Cigarette Quit Program

The Truth Initiative has launched a text message based e-cigarette program. This program is evidence informed and was developed with input from teens and young adults who have tried to quit e-cigarettes in order to develop tailored messages for this age group. The text messaging program also acts as a resource for parents who are looking to help their children who vape. This program was created to address the growing problem of vaping among youth - there has been a 78% increase in e-cigarette use among high school students in 2018 alone.
