This website is a hub for interventions to help youth and young adults stop vaping e-cigarettes. The interventions were developed by the University of Toronto’s Ontario Tobacco Research Unit with funding from Health Canada.
Stop Vaping Challenge is an app that provides a space for youth to reflect on their vaping behaviours through an “abstinence challenge”. They are encouraged to try to stop vaping for as long as they can, with the help of a timer within the app tracking seconds, minutes, and hours. This can be a highly revealing experience.

Crush the Crave was one of the first evidence-based smoking cessation apps designed to meet the needs of young adult smokers. The app has been updated to help participants quit vaping through a customized quit plan, tracking (e.g., cravings, money saved, health improvements) and access to services such as quitlines.
