The Great American STOMP Out 

For this year's Great American Smoke Out, Tobacco Free for a Healthy NJ (TFHNJ) wants to bring NJ all of the resources necessary to help our residents quit smoking! We also want to use this opportunity to continue educating our merchants with the STOMP Out Youth Tobacco Use - STOMP 21(hence the play on words! ) Visit the resources section of this page to learn more. 

SCHOOLS

School personnel are key partners in tobacco prevention as they have the attention of our youth.  The Great American Smoke Out is a great opportunity to teach youth about the dangers of tobacco products. Below are some resources for schools. 

COALITIONS

Coalitions help implement  a comprehensive approach  to tobacco prevention by bringing  education, programs &  other resources to the community. The resources below will help you find best practices. 

PARENTS

When it comes to preventing teens from using tobacco or helping them quit, parents and other caring adults can take several steps. First, you can set an example & choose not to smoke or use other tobacco products. Modeling desirable behavior is the start of helping your child live a tobacco-free life. 

MERCHANTS

Merchants are the front line of defense in decreasing youth access. It is essential to follow the state law by not selling to those under 21. Below are some resources for merchants to comply with this law and support our communities.
