Introduction and Background
Tobacco use in the young adults is considered to be one of the deadliest addictions for a nation. The terrible effects of tobacco use or cigarette smoking have become a serious health problem at the global level. Scientific reports suggest that nowadays above 6, 00,000 middle school students, and more than 3 million higher-class students are addicted to tobacco or cigarettes. Mostly the youth and young adults between ages 12-25 use tobacco on a regular basis and come up with the general health effects including chronic coughing habit, impaired lung function, breathing problem and wheezing. Hence, an organization of awareness program in the youth is believed to be essential in order to raise their consciousness regarding the risk factors of tobacco use (Botvin, Gilbert, & Griffin, 2015).
This way the tobacco prevention program among the youth can be channelized to reduce the tobacco usage (Henningfield, Jack, Moolchan, & Zeller, 2003). In particular, the present report is based on discussion of a 10-day school-based prevention program, which aims at increasing awareness among children against the ill health effects of tobacco. The necessary program plans and the corresponding objective are detailed in the preceding structure.
