Sudden Infant Death (SID).
Describe in detail the characteristics of your chosen hypothetical individual or group for this activity. (Sudden Infant Death (SID).
Discuss why your chosen population is predisposed to this health concern and why they can benefit from a health promotion educational plan.
Based on the health concern for your hypothetical individual or group, discuss what you would include in the development of a sociogram.

Despite reductions in prevalence in recent years, tobacco use remains one of the main preventable causes of ill-health and premature death worldwide. There are numerous negative health effects of tobacco use, both physically and mentally. Tobacco smoke contains biologically significant concentrations of known carcinogens as well as many other toxic chemicals. Smokers mostly acknowledge the harm they are doing to themselves and many reports that they do not enjoy it – yet they continue to smoke (West, 2017). This paper discusses the health promotion and tobacco cessation plan for a close friend, and also targets the young adult population. Additionally, provide an overview of the benefits of stopping, prevalence and patterns of use, pharmacological and social factors leading to uptake and maintenance of the behavior, interventions and goals both at a population and individual level.
Population affected 
Tobacco use varies by geography and sociodemographic factors, but remains prevalent among US young adults. The overall prevalence of any current tobacco use is 25.2% (1 in 4 adults), and prevalence was significantly higher among men than women. Cigarette smoking alone has been estimated to cause 443, 000 deaths per year in the United States, including approximately 49, 400 deaths attributed to secondhand smoke exposure (King, 2012). 
Polytobacco use is now very common, especially among youth and young adults. According to (Richardson, 2014) a study was performed to analyze prevalence of tobacco use of young adults ranging from 1-34 years old. The study resulted in Data showing a high prevalence of tobacco use of both combustible and noncombustible products. 67% of respondents had used at least 1 tobacco product, this indicates at least a willingness to try tobacco products, which could increase vulnerability to more regular use. The high level of poly-use identified in this  HEALTH PROMOTION PLAN 3 study highlights the need to develop effective interventions to help tobacco cessation and educate young adults about the harms associated with tobacco products. Health effects associated with tobacco use include heart disease, many types of cancer, pulmonary disease, adverse reproductive outcomes, and the exacerbation of multiple chronic health conditions. 
Analyzing Best Practices for Tobacco Cessation 
Smoking cessation before age 30 is essential to avoiding tobacco-related disease and premature death (West, 2016). Best practice population-based strategies have been identified for tobacco cessation. The ambulatory care setting provides a key environment to identify tobacco users and provide them a customized approach for tobacco cessation. Tobacco cessation clinics consist of clinical pharmacists, and certified tobacco cessation providers. This service provides multiple strategies such as medications; including nicotine replacement strategies and bupropion, education for the risks of smoking/ benefits from quitting, a supportive group environment to assist with quitting attempts, help for patients to identify their motivating factors to quit and educate them on the behavioral and lifestyle modifications that can be made to overcome cravings and increase the success rates (Stack, 2007). The tobacco-cessation clinic consists of group and individual classes using the principles and interventions highlighted within the Public Health Service’s clinical practice guidelines. However, lack of insurance and cost variances may be a potential barrier for those seeking treatment at clinics. 
Exercise has been identified to promote adherence to cessation when used in addition to another intervention. According to (Ussher, 2014) a study group revealed significantly higher abstinence rates in a physically active versus sedentary individuals. In addition, short bouts of exercise decrease cigarette cravings and withdrawal symptoms among temporarily abstinent THE HEALTH PROMOTION PLAN 4 smokers (Linke, 2013). However, co-morbidities and underlying health conditions may not promote certain types of exercise and individuals should consult their health providers first. 
Health Promotion Plan
This health promotion plan concentrates on the young adult population and a friend, Gabe. He is a 27-year-old male and currently smokes a ½ pack of cigarettes a day, or uses an electronic cigarette occasionally to supplement. I conducted an interview to establish mutual health goals to initiate tobacco cessation and promote Gabe’s health. The community member was agreeable to the patient centered goals and was willing to actively participate. The goals that were established during the time of collaboration is as followed: 
Contact Person: Gabriel Clark
Phone and email: 
Date of meeting: April 6th
Problem: Use of inhaled tobacco products among young adults 
Goal: The young adult community member will achieve tobacco cessation with the use of services and interventions identified. Specific: Young adults are at risk for respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, addiction, and more. These risk factors indicate the need for intervention that can be obtained with resources in the community. The interventions and actions are as followed: patient will participate in daily exercise, be compliant with medication regimens as explained by the primary care physician, attend group cessation meetings every Thursday, and actively incorporate recommendations and strategies identified by group sessions.
Smoking Cessation Clinic: 
Location: Pittsburgh Mercy, 330 South 9th Street, Room 251 
Thursdays @ 12:00pm – free 45 minutes group sessions for tobacco caseation support and techniques Primary Care 
Provider: Location: 1020 Center Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15229 Physical evaluation for exercise approval, possible paralogical interventions. 
Measurable: Community member will keep a log, documenting everyday and whether or not he achieved abstinence from tobacco each day. 
Attainable: Cessation classes are free; patient has insurance coverage for possible pharmacological needs. 
Realistic: The community member will plan on the prevention of disease by adhering to strategies. 
Time-Bound: Goal to have cessation in 4 months by community member. He also will continue to check in with his providers to be held accountable. 
Tobacco use is a major health concern for young adults. The risk for addiction is more prevalent among the youth and young adult population. Tobacco cessation and management is essential to leading a healthy life style. Goals need to be attainable and agreed upon by the participant, without agreement the interventions will not be successful. The application of a health implementation plan will assist in making lifestyle changes and setting goals that results in a positive outcome
