Logo-reLearnLife Hey, the folks at American Legacy Foundation are the real deal, set up by lots of states as part of a settlement deal with the tobacco companies.

They run the Truth campaign, trying to prevent addiction among the young.

Here's their new effort to help people out:

Social media can help create social change, but it can also help with PERSONAL

change -- like helping people quit smoking. There are now iPhone apps that can help,

Twitter feeds, even online communities, like this one at BecomeAnEX.org.

The EX plan offers lots of other tools, resources, information and exercises that

can help you prepare to quit smoking today. Probably the best part is that EX comes

with a built-in network of friends and support. You can access their social network

of other people trying to quit at BecomeAnEX.org
