NIX18 – No smoking – Do not drink under the age of 18
The NIX18 campaign is an initiative of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and a large number of partners (Koninklijke Horeca Nederland, KWF kankerbestrijding, Longfonds, Trimbos Institute, NOC*NSF, supermarkets united in the Centraal Bureau Levensmiddelenhandel, GGD GHOR Nederland, GGD’s, Thuiswinkel.org, the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority and the Ministries of Security and Justice). The aim of the campaign is to strengthen the social norm ‘don’t drink and smoke until you are 18’. The campaign is aimed at the whole of society, and more specifically at young people’s environment. Everyone should start to think it’s normal if young people don’t smoke or drink before the age of 18.
What can help to support the social norm is that as of 1 January 2014 the Drinks and Catering Act and the Tobacco Act have been amended.
From 1 January 2014, no alcohol or tobacco may be sold to young people under the age of 18. Young people are also not allowed to carry alcohol in public (e.g. on the street, in a pub, at a train station) until they are 18 years old. In addition to this social standards campaign, partners such as the Trimbos Institute and the ‘GGD’ and their 1-on-1 activities directly target educators and their children. To stimulate and help them to put the desired behavior into practice, namely: making the NIX-capture. An agreement not to smoke and not to drink until you’re 18. At
