Notes: 
<p>Review, Network Spring 2000: Youth and Tobacco - Lessons Learned from the Tobacco Demand Reduction Strategy is one in a series of five summaries of the Tobacco Demand Reduction Strategy (TDRS), a program intended to assist health professionals and policy makers in shaping future action on tobacco reduction. This summary identifies the key lessons that have been drawn from studies on teens and smoking. Tobacco use prevention was discovered to be most effective with youngh children (9-12) and was found to include a need for the reduction in overall community smoking to diminish exposure not only to smoke but also to the image of smoking as normal. Teens' motivations for starting and for continuing to smoke are discussed in Lesson Two while Lesson Three focuses on teens who want to quit smoking. The TDRS found that in order for tobacco cessation and reduction programs to be successful they must incorporate the many influences that contribut to youth smoking and should involve youth in the creation of the programs.</p>
