Tobacco and tobacco-related products are harmful to the body in all forms of use. Tobacco products contain the highly addictive chemical, nicotine. Adolescents who understand the negative short-term effects, long-term effects, and social consequences of using tobacco products are more likely to remain tobacco free.
The ability to name and set reachable goals builds self-efficacy and a stronger sense of hope for the future. Early exposure to the basic elements of setting and reaching goals enhances the development and application of these skills through adolescence and into adulthood. Students who can, and do, set reachable goals have a stronger sense of self and make better decisions.
Adolescents equipped with decision-making and problem-solving skills are more likely to make confident, healthy decisions, and avoid negative consequences. The ability to stop and consider the positive and negative consequences of decisions reduces the likelihood of acting impulsively, keeping actions consistent with short-term and long-term goals.
