  1. Click on the Tweet to go to TECC’s version of the tweet and then retweet it.
  2. You have the option to add your own introductory text if desired.

Next, copy the caption. We’ve written short, attention getting captions that include links to trustworthy sources. Feel free to use exactly what we wrote or customize them to make them more interesting to your community. Once you’ve got your caption, paste it into the “Write a post…” field on your Facebook page.

Now you want a good image. You can use the images we’ve provided (to download, right click the image, and select “Save image as”), or you can pick your own visually interesting and relevant image. If you don’t have your own images, use TECC’s free image gallery for tobacco control. Upload the image to your post, click “Publish”, and that’s it!


Bright colors, candy like packaging, and sweet flavors—stuff kids love. And the tobacco industry knows it. It’s like giving super addictive candy to a baby.


By adding menthol, the minty flavor additive, to their products, the tobacco industry cracked the addiction formula. Menthol makes tobacco products less harsh and irritating to use and harder to quit.
