Youth TPC Program
FDA Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan
FDA's Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan is a series of actions to stop youth use of tobacco products, especially e-cigarettes, with special focus on three key areas:
- Preventing youth access to tobacco products
- Curbing marketing of tobacco products aimed at youth; and
- Educating teens about the dangers of using any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes, as well as educating retailers about their key role in protecting youth
For more information, visit the FDA Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan.
The Alabama Quitline is a toll-free, telephone-based tobacco cessation service (1-800 Quit Now or 1-800-784-8669) for all Alabama residents that provides free counseling and up to eight weeks of nicotine patches to medically eligible callers enrolled in the program. Services are also available at www.QuitNowAlabama.com.

Red Ribbon Week
The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, October 23-October 31 each year. The campaign launched in 1985 in response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena. Since then, parents and youth across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a way to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America. Visit the National Family Partnership to learn more about Red Ribbon Week.
The Youth Tobacco Program has a Facebook fan page just for teens. It is a great place for teens to find out about the Alabama Tobacco Quitline.
