Reality Check of TFSI

Big Tobacco dishes out $1 million an hour to market their deadly and addictive products that appeal to youth. The tobacco industry
knows that their customers are dropping like flies, and who better to replace them than you and your peers?
• Each day in the United States, 3,800+ youth 18 years or younger smoke their first cigarettes and 2,100 others become daily cigarette smokers.
• Nearly 9 out of 10 cigarette smokers first tried smoking by age 18, and 99% first tried smoking by age 26. Reality Check works towards decreasing the social acceptability of tobacco use.
• Are you interested in making a difference in your community & city?
• Do you want to meet new friends, travel, and have a great time all while helping to save lives?
• Are you between the ages of 12 and 18? Then Reality Check is for you.

If your teen is looking for an opportunity to be part of a tobacco-Free generation.
