Teens are speaking up and standing against tobacco for National Kick Butts Day.

Youth council members of the Dothan/Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership teamed up with students at Dothan High School to show the deadly effects of tobacco use.

Students placed 50 tombstones in front of the high school displaying the consequences if smokers don't kick the Habit.

"We get to tell and show people through these signs and through everyone here we can show that tobacco is a major issue and like smoke kills and thats its a really serious problem in Alabama." says Angela Lee.

Studies show 5.6 million U.S children alive today will die prematurely from smoking-caused disease, that includes 108,000 children in Alabama.
