See -help added_text_options-. For example:

xtline rinc2001, overlay ///
graphregion(fcolor(white)) ///
ytitle(Income in Pesos of 2001) ///
xtitle(Years in the labor force) ///
graphregion(fcolor(white) ///
lcolor(white) ///
ifcolor(white) ///
ilcolor(white)) ///
text(235000 3 "Cohort = 1998") ///
text(280000 10.5 "Cohort = 1993") ///
text(250000 14 "Cohort = 1988") ///
legend(off)
