Preventing Tobacco and Nicotine Addiction
Established in 1996 the Preventing Tobacco Addiction Foundation strives to reduce the terrible toll of smoking and tobacco use through a preventive effort. The belief that tobacco use is a voluntary risk continually undertaken by smokers themselves is belied by the fact that virtually all nicotine use begins in adolescence when experimentation and risk-taking are part and parcel of normal development.
We work to change policies across the country that will limit the tobacco industry's access to kids by holding them accountable for illegal sales to minors.
Mission: To reduce the health and economic impact of tobacco use and nicotine addiction through education, advocacy, and policy change.
Vision: A world without nicotine addiction and tobacco use.
