Whether smoked or chewed, tobacco is a delivery system for a very potent drug: nicotine. In this program, four teenagers frankly describe their experiences with tobacco.
A recurring theme of their individual stories is the feeling of coolness and social acceptance that comes with smoking and dipping. The program’s experienced addiction counselors are quick to deflate this perception, as they criticize the media and a permissive society as the primary forces behind tobacco’s attraction. A satiric onscreen “quiz” also helps strip the glamor from tobacco use.
