What do you really know about vaping?

Before you consider it, consider what long term problems it might cause.

  • Vaping is less harmful than smoking, but it’s still not safe.
  • In 2020 alone, there were 2,807 cases of vaping use-associated lung injury and 68 deaths attributed to that condition.
  • You’re exposing yourself to all kinds of chemicals that we don’t yet understand and that are probably not safe.
  • Nicotine is a toxic substance. It raises your blood pressure and spikes your adrenaline, which increases your heart rate and the likelihood of having a heart attack.
  • Electronic cigarettes are just as addictive as traditional ones.
