Abstract

Treatment for adolescent smokers requires understanding of use patterns, attitudes, and practices relating to cessation. Results of the 1999 New Jersey Youth Tobacco Survey show that frequent smokers have higher daily consumption, more difficulty abstaining, high interest in quitting, and lower self-efficacy. These findings may help in developing effective treatment strategies.
