You Think You’re Cool Because You Juul? You Not.

You Think Youre Cool Because You Juul? You Not.

Is 60 seconds of a high worth 60 years of your life? Juuling and vaping habits of teens and young adults have increased drastically. So far there are 5 confirmed deaths from vape-related respiratory issues. Stores have taken away the flavored juul pods to try and reduce teen vaping. Vapes were originally made to help get smokers off cigarettes but teens have gotten their hands on these different devices. Juul pods and vape juice contain tons of chemicals that these teens know nothing about.

One of the main chemicals in these products is nicotine which is highly addictive. Teenagers think that vaping is fun and looks cool but it is honestly extremely harmful. Once you’re addicted to it, it’s very hard to get away from it just like any other drug or any bad habits. There are new devices coming out all the time like Njoys and disposal vaping gadgets. Vaping hasn’t been out for too long so no one knows the long lasting effects of these contraptions. When people started smoking cigarettes, they had no idea that they could die from the effects of it. People have already died from vaping related issues and it seems like these teens don’t care and have a “it couldn’t happen to me” attitude towards the topic. Hopefully these teenagers and young adults can open their eyes to the truth before it’s too late.
