Our school has been famous for generations for its "smart kids," but we continue to have a major problem with tobacco. No matter how intelligent our students may be, it's not enough for them to "know" smoking is bad for them, they have to "feel" it. This program is great because the anti-tobacco video games involve the kids, get them thinking, and help them break whatever emotional attachment they may have with the desire to smoke. ----David Hutt, Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist, Bronx High School of Science, New York City.
This program is different -- so different from anything else out there. It really keeps you going. None of my family smokes (except my brother-in-law who I originally bought the program for), but I've been using it with the kids to try to give them an education about cigarettes. They love destroying the cigarette factory and playing the other video games. If they're going to be playing video games at all, it might as well be this one. I've become really familiar with No Smoke over the few weeks we've had it on our computer and I think it is a fine piece of programming. It should be installed in every school in America, in fact all over.----Ramon Garcia, Attorney, Galveston, Texas.
I have always been concerned about smoking. I smoked in nursing school, but a few days on the cancer ward will cure you of that habit. Unfortunately, I recently learned that my sixteen-year-old son has experimented with cigarettes. When I found this out I realized I had to act carefully so he didn't just push me away when I tried to help him. He was reluctant at first, but I have taken him through the No Smoke program step by step and I think I am getting through to him (even if he doesn't want to admit it). There are no guarantees of course with a force as powerful as smoking, but this is a good weapon against it. He stays involved. Thank you for creating this program for us.----Linda Taylor, Registered Nurse, Santa Monica, CA
