This chapter first examines the media's smoking images and their potential effects. It then moves to understand how the media affects adolescents' smoking, place smoking in the context of adolescent development, and then examines efforts to limit adolescents' smoking strategies and the media's potential role. Overall, the analysis points to the need to consider the peculiarities of adolescents' development and their social environment to understand the media's influence and to harness media effects in intended ways.

Keywords:   adolescent development, teenagers, tobacco use, smoking, media influence, social environment
