Background

Most tobacco control programmes for adolescents are based around prevention of uptake, but teenage smoking is still common. It is unclear if interventions that are effective for adults can also help adolescents to quit. This is the update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2006.

Objectives

To evaluate the effectiveness of strategies that help young people to stop smoking tobacco.
