Smokers usually become addicted before they reach the age of 18, therefore one of the most important steps to reducing smoking in the whole population of Croatia must be the development of an efficient strategy for preventing the smoking among the youth. Through the workshops and scientific papers I will try to prevent ,as much as possible, smoking among high-schoolers. Resent studies indicate that approximately 30% of high-schoolers in Croatia are smokers. Even nowadays there is lack of awareness in Croatia when it comes to smoking. Unfortunately we still underestimate this addiction in our society! Please help me to correct this unhealthy trend in my country!
