Freshstart Facilitator Training
Freshstart History of Tobacco Control
  • Nicotiana tabacum - native to the Western
    Hemisphere and was unknown to Europeans prior the
    voyage of discovery. Native Americans used
    tobacco in their culture for religious and for
    recreational purposes. In many other cultures,
    tobacco was used by shamans and was reserved for
    ritual use.
  • Tobacco was introduced to France in 1556,
    Portugal in 1558, and Spain in 1559, and England
    in 1565.
  • The first successful commercial crop was
    cultivated in Virginia in 1612 by Englishman John
    Rolfe. Within seven years, it was the colony's
    largest export.

  • The Virginia Colonies in North America developed
    around a tobacco economy in the early 17th
    century. Tobacco was exported to Europe for pipe
    smoking and stuff, while cigars came for the
    Spanish colonies. Tobacco was used as an exchange
    medium in this era.
  • At first, tobacco was produced mainly for
    pipe-smoking, chewing, and snuff. Cigars didn't
    become popular until the early 1800s. Cigarettes,
    which had been around in crude form since the
    early 1600s, didn't become widely popular in the
    United States until after the Civil War, with the
    spread of "Bright" tobacco, a uniquely cured
    yellow leaf grown in Virginia and North Carolina.

Freshstart Mass Production of Tobacco
  • Cigarette sales surged again with the
    introduction of the "White Burley" tobacco leaf
    and the invention of the first practical
    cigarette-making machine, sponsored by tobacco
    baron James Buchanan "Buck" Duke, in the late
  • James Bonsack invented the cigarette making
    machine in 1881 that could make 120, 000
    cigarettes in a day. Bonsack went into business
    with Buck Duke and they built a factory. They
    made 10 million cigarettes the first year and
    about 1 billion 5 years later.

Freshstart Research Begins
  • In the May 27, 1950 issue of JAMA, Morton Levy
    published the first major study definitively
    linking smoking to lung cancer.
  • In the same issue, "Tobacco Smoking as a
    Possible Etiologic Factor in Bronchiogenic
    Carcinoma A Study of 684 Proved Cases," by Ernst
    L. Wynder and Evarts A. Graham of the United
    States, found that 96.5 of lung cancer patients
    interviewed were moderate heavy-to-chain-smokers.
  • 1950 RICHARD DOLL and A BRADFORD HILL publish
    first report on Smoking and Carcinoma of the Lung
    in the British Medical Journal, finding that
    heavy smokers were fifty times as likely as
    nonsmokers to contract lung cancer.

Freshstart Smoking and Cancer
  • In 1964, Luther Terry, M.D., released the report
    of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on
    Smoking and Health. That landmark document, now
    referred to as the first Surgeon General's Report
    on Smoking and Health, was America's first widely
    publicized official recognition that cigarette
    smoking is a cause of cancer and other serious
  • The 1964 report on smoking and health had an
    huge impact on public attitudes and policy. A
    Gallup Survey conducted in 1958 found that only
    44 percent of Americans believed smoking caused
    cancer, while 78 percent believed so by 1968.

Freshstart Public Health Interventions
  • In 1965, Congress required all cigarette packages
    distributed in the United States to carry a
    health warning, and since 1970 this warning is
    made in the name of the Surgeon General. In 1969,
    cigarette advertising on television and radio was
    banned, effective September 1970.
  • Cigarette sales in the U.S. have fallen by more
    than 21 since the state Attorneys General
    negotiated the landmark 1998 tobacco Master
    Settlement Agreement (MSA), which imposed public
    health restrictions on the advertising, promotion
    and marketing of cigarettes by tobacco companies.

Freshstart Review and Discussion (III)
  • Review Material
  • Questions?

Freshstart Comprehensive Tobacco Control
  • Preventing the initiation of tobacco use among
    young people.
  • Promoting quitting among young people and
  • Eliminating nonsmokers exposure to
    environmental tobacco smoke (ETS).
  • Identifying and eliminating the disparities
    related to tobacco use and its effects among
    different population groups.

CDC Best Practices for Comprehensive
TobaccoControl Programs, August 1999
Freshstart ACS and Tobacco Control
  • The American Cancer Society is the largest source
    of private, not-for-profit cancer research funds
    in the US, second only to the federal government
    in total dollars spent. In 2004, the Society
    spent nearly 131 million in research. Since
    1946, the Society has invested more than 2.8
    billion in cancer research.
  • Internationally, the department collaborates with
    the World Health Organization to publish tobacco
    control country profiles, plus a monograph on
    tobacco consumption, production, and trade in 197

Freshstart ACS and Tobacco Control
  • The American Cancer Society works collaboratively
    with our national partners to implement
    comprehensive tobacco control programs. The
    Society advocates for social environmental change
    at the national, state, and community levels that
    prevents young people from starting to use
    tobacco and provides support for those who wish
    to stop smoking.
  • The Society has joined other health, education,
    and social service agencies to promote
    comprehensive school health education and
    National School Health Education Standards.

Freshstart ACS and Tobacco Control
  • Grassroots action, direct lobbying, and applied
    policy analysis work to influence policy, laws,
    and regulations affecting the Society's
    nationwide priorities and 2015 goals.
  • Enhance or ensure the role of the US Food and
    Drug Administration in regulating tobacco
  • Ensure funds derived from the 1998 multi-state
    tobacco settlement are at least partially
    obligated toward tobacco prevention and cessation
  • Enact smoke-free ordinances at the local and
    state level to ensure all workers are protected
    from secondhand smoke exposure in their place of

Freshstart ACS Tobacco Milestones
  • 1954 The Society's Hammond-Horn study shows the
    first link between smoking and lung cancer.
  • 1959 The Society's Cancer Prevention Study I (CPS
    I) begins, which shows that cigarette smoking
    leads to early death from lung cancer.
  • 1960 The Society takes a leading role in
    challenging and eliminating tobacco advertising.
  • 1970 The Surgeon General concurs with the
    findings of Society research irrefutably linking
    cigarette smoking to cancer.
  • 1977 The Society's first annual Great American
    Smokeout publicizes the dangers of smoking with
    the media and the general public.
  • 1982 Freshstart program is developed and
    implemented nationwide.

Freshstart ACS Tobacco Milestones
  • 1982 The Society joins with the American Heart
    Association and American Lung Association to form
    the Coalition on Smoking or Health to advocate
    for federal tobacco control policy.
  • 1982 The Society launches Cancer Prevention
    Study II (CPS II) of 1.2 million volunteers to
    determine risk factors for cancer mortality. To
    date, the study has demonstrated that secondhand
    smoke increases mortality from lung cancer and
    heart disease.
  • 1990 The Society pushes legislation for clean
    indoor air acts in local communities, tobacco
    taxation, and elimination tobacco industry
    advertising targeting children.
  • 1990 At the 7th World Conference on Tobacco or
    Health in Perth, Australia, Society
    representatives launch the "Trade for Life"
    program to fight the aggressive marketing of
    cigarettes in developing countries.

Freshstart ACS Tobacco Milestones
  • 1991 Society-funded research shows that young
    children recognize Joe Camel as easily as Mickey
    Mouse, demonstrating that the cartoon character
    reaches an audience well under the legal smoking
  • 1991 The American Stop Smoking Intervention Study
    for Cancer Prevention (ASSIST) Program launches.
    This is the world's largest demonstration project
    for tobacco control and is a joint effort between
    the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the
  • 1993 The US Environmental Protection Agency
    classifies environmental tobacco smoke as a Group
    A (known human) carcinogen
  • 1994 The Society asks the FDA to reconsider
    regulation of tobacco products and prompts
    congressional hearings.

Freshstart ACS Tobacco Milestones
  • 1999 Through Operation Settle Up, the Society
    helps secure nearly 300 million in settlement
    money earmarked for state tobacco prevention and
    control programs.
  • 2000 Society epidemiologists prove that long-term
    cigarette smoking is associated with increased
    risk of death from colon cancer.
  • 2000 ACS launches clinical trial in Texas for
    Quitline. By 2005, Quitline has served over
    190,000 callers.
  • 2005 ACS targets lung cancer for 2015
    goals -reduce incidence of cancer by
    25 -reduce mortality by 50 -increase quality
    of life for survivors

Freshstart Nicotine and Its Effects
  • As a stimulant - immediately after exposure to
    nicotine, there is a "kick" caused in part by the
    drug's stimulation of the adrenal glands and
    resulting discharge of epinephrine (adrenaline).
    The rush of adrenaline stimulates the body and
    causes a sudden release of glucose as well as an
    increase in blood pressure, respiration, and
    heart rate.
  • Nicotine also suppresses insulin output from the
    pancreas, which means that smokers are always
    slightly hyperglycemic.
  • In addition, nicotine indirectly causes a
    release of dopamine in the brain regions that
    control pleasure and motivation.
  • In contrast, nicotine can also exert a sedative
    effect, depending on the level of the smoker's
    nervous system arousal and the dose of nicotine

  • Can effect the way medications are metabolized
    important to tell physician about quit if taking
  • May be masking depression, anxiety or other
    mental health condition
  • Tobacco dependence is a true addiction with a
    clear neurophysiological components
  • Pharmacotherapy allows quitter to focus on
    behavioral and psychological aspects of quitting
  • People using NRT are 1.5 2 times more likely
    to successfully quit than are those using

Freshstart Foundations of Tobacco Cessation
  • US Public Health Services Clinical Practice
    Guidelines Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence
  • Identifies effective, experimentally validated
    tobacco dependence treatment and practices using
  • Additionally, ACS programs integrate counseling
    strategies identified as effective in treating

Freshstart Intensive Treatment Findings
  • There is a strong dose relationship between
    counseling intensity and cessation success and
    effectiveness increases with treatment intensity.
    (sessions longer than 10 minutes with 4 or more
  • Involving multiple types of providers may
    enhance abstinence rates.
  • Proactive telephone counseling, individual and
    group counseling are equally effective.

  • Particular types of counseling and behavioral
    therapies are especially effective. Should
    involve problem solving/skill training and
    intra-treatment and extra-treatment social
  • Pharmacotherapies such as bupropion SR or
    nicotine replacement therapies increase
    abstinence rates. Use should be encouraged for
    all quitters, with a few special circumstances.
  • Tobacco dependence treatments are effective
    across diverse populations (gender, age,

Freshstart Choosing a Cessation Program
