Session 1 COUGH Cessation Student Advocates Training
Transcript of Session 1 COUGH Cessation Student Advocates Training
Tobacco Cessation Student Advocates
An online training series
for college students who are interested in helping
tobacco users quit.
Thank you for your interest in this training!
This training was conceptualized by students who wanted to lean more about how to help tobacco users quit, and be advocates for campus tobacco cessation.
The California Youth Advocacy Network (CYAN) is dedicated to the support of youth and young adult tobacco control advocacy throughout California.
Information & Resources
About This Training
We realize that students may have challenging schedules. We designed this training so you can participate in each session at your own pace when it's convenient for you.
About 30 minutes each.
Short evaluation after each session, with an opportunity to ask questions.
Young Adult Tobacco Use
Young adults have the second highest tobacco use rate
of any age group (13.5%)
Then What Happened?
Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) in 1998
Agreement between 46 states and 4 major cigarette companies.
What It's Like Now...
Young adults age 18-24 are the youngest legal targets for tobacco industry marketing.
If a person does not become a tobacco user before the age of 25, they are unlikely to ever start.
... But why?
College Tobacco Use Rates
Spring 2013 ACHA NCHA
Any use in last 30 days 13.8%
17.4% for males, 11.7% for females
California Young Adult Smoking Rate
13.5% in 2013
Daily and Non-Daily Use
Uses tobacco every day
Daily, cutting back
Occasional, becoming daily
Occasional, staying the same
Only uses tobacco in certain situations or with certain people
Students often think that tobacco use rates are much higher than they actually are.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Nicotine & New and Emerging Products
Cessation, Helping People Quit
Taking Action with Advocacy and Policy on Campus
Understanding Nicotine Dependence
After you complete all 6 sessions we will send you a certificate of completion.
Session 1 Done
In this session we talked about what CYAN, COUGH, and this training are all about.
We also covered the basics of young adult tobacco use, including rates, health disparities, daily and non-daily tobacco use, and social norms.
In session 2 we will take a closer look at different tobacco and nicotine products on the market, and we'll introduce the issue of nicotine dependence.
What It Used To Be Like...
Remember Joe Camel?
Cigarette commercials on TV?
During the 1990's, smoking among 18-24 year old's dramatically increased.
In the 1990's, 90% of smokers started before the age of 18.

COUGH is a statewide coalition of college students, active since 2002.
COUGH's mission is to ensure a healthy campus environment free of tobacco and tobacco industry presence.

Restrictions on advertising.
The largest civil litigation settlement in US history
Provides some funding for tobacco control programs.
Release industry documents to the public.
No more marketing to youth under 18.
18 - 24 Years Old
It's all about the frontal cortex! Around age 25 the brain finally finishes developing. The last part of the brain to finish developing is the frontal cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls reasoning, and helps us think before we act. It is almost unheard of for someone to start using tobacco after age 25.
People who occasionally use tobacco MAY or MAY NOT identify as a tobacco user.
