Quitting Responses to the structured questionnaire suggested considerable interest in quitting, similar to that in older smokers [ 26, 27 ].
Given the recent resurgence in interest and investment in physical activity mass media campaigns in Australia and internationally, it is timely to review the evidence and specifically assess if stronger evaluation methods are being used, and do these suggest greater campaign effectiveness.
There was little interest in using NRT. These include: Service development—This study supports and extends the conclusion of Balch's [ 9 ] study with school pupils that cessation services are currently unlikely to appeal to older adolescents.
Being with smoking friends reinforced smoking, and the negative impact this had on quitting attempts was often mentioned. A theme that emerged for some women, but not men, was concerns about weight gain.
M96 daily, unemployed said it was: Stress, just a relationship, a family relationship. View Large Interviews Data were collected using a brief structured questionnaire on smoking behaviour, dependence and motivation to quit, and a longer semi-structured interview.
Mass media campaigns aim to raise community awareness, inform and change attitudes towards being active, and ultimately, to influence physical activity behaviour [ 389 ]. Advanced Search Abstract Internationally, mass media campaigns to promote regular moderate-intensity physical activity have increased recently.
Some interviewees described how their transition into new social worlds had militated against quitting. Friends' smoking habits, the smoking culture at work or college, stress and boredom were all regarded as barriers to quitting [ 30 ].
Research has suggested that smoking can function as a symbol of shared identity and belonging for girls, who compared with boys have few alternatives for the construction of non-submissive identities [ 21, 33, 34 ].
The nicotine patches are still giving you the nicotine so it defeats the purpose. For example, few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of NRT with young people [ 38 ]. This contrasts with the large number of calls from smokers in their mid-teens.
Cessation services were mostly thought not appropriate for younger people because their image was incompatible with the self-image that they wished to project. Meeting the needs of this diverse group of smokers poses many challenges for tobacco control and smoking cessation services.
O'Loughlin et al. Moreover, social smokers and those like F40 daily, college who did not feel addicted would not use either cessation services or NRT: I personally wouldn't use patches and stuff'cos I think I am not addicted and I could stop if I wanted to, I could stop just like that.
Literature was searched resulting in 18 individual adult mass media campaigns, mostly in high-income regions and two in middle-income regions. Service evaluation—Given the lack of research with this age group, there is a need to evaluate the effectiveness of new services as they develop as well as better quality trials of theoretically informed interventions [ 37 ].
Paired interviews were chosen as they generate rich data about adolescents' smoking attitudes and behaviour and the ways smoking is located within social relationships.
We are unemployed, we are out looking for work, we do try, but there is nothing for us to do in the meantime.
Service delivery—NRT does not appear attractive or relevant to young smokers because many do not perceive themselves to be addicted and are not motivated to quit in the short term. This review also reported high levels of campaign awareness, but again few studies reported any population level increases in physical activity [ 5 ].
Tobacco consumption among young smokers is variable and, therefore, dependence needs to be carefully assessed, as this will influence both the type of cessation support that it is appropriate to offer and the likely success rate. Compared with smoking tobacco, smoking cannabis had positive functionality.
