Tennessee Quit Week is a recognition to encourage tobacco/nicotine users to quit by providing resources, tools, and information.
Tobacco use can lead to tobacco dependence and serious health problems. Quitting smoking greatly reduces the risk of developing smoking-related diseases.
Tobacco/nicotine dependence is a condition that often requires repeated treatments, but there are helpful treatments and resources for quitting.
Smokers can and do quit smoking for good. In fact, since 2002 there have been more former smokers than current smokers.

The "Talk. They Hear You." Prevention National Media Campaign empowers parents and caregivers to talk with children early about alcohol and other drug use.
Parents have a significant influence in their children’s decision to experiment with alcohol and other drugs. Although it may not seem like it, when parents talk about underage drinking and substance use, their children do hear them.
The campaign includes tips and tools for caregivers, teachers, community members, and schools on having frequent and meaningful conversations.
