Going tobacco free saves lives.

Tobacco can cause a significant decline in the quality of life the longer you smoke.

Smoking also affects the entire family when a family member smokes around them. This "secondhand" and "thirdhand" smoke can cause serious health consequences for nonsmoking family members, especially young children.




Quitting smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your health. Get FREE help and support from DC Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669).

DCTFC works to keep local youth tobacco-free. We partner with DC youth to promote peer leaders and trainers in a youth-talking-to-youth project called Teens Who Don't...DC Anti-Tobacco Youth Coalition.
