This presentation will overview what we have learned about youth cessation to date from the 13-year Nicotine Dependence in Teens (NDIT) cohort investigation.
The talk will begin with results from our systematic reviews on the frequency of quit attempts, the determinants of cessation, and the results of randomized controlled trials testing youth cessation interventions. It will then overview our work of the natural history of cessation in youth.
