Evidence tells us that tobacco use is highly correlated to traumatic events in childhood.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are common and associated with an increased risk for smoking (Yeoman, Safranek, et. al, 2013).  However, we often miss using this evidence and our growing understanding of trauma to inform our tobacco cessation efforts.  Below you will find some resources related to trauma that can help provide a trauma informed lens to your tobacco cessation efforts and help you more effectively support tobacco cessation with individuals who have experienced trauma.
