It contains the addictive chemical in the form of flavours which tend to attract youngsters.

Not only adults but even children as young as 11 years are struggling due to serious addictions e-cigarettes. Vapes are another name for E-cigarettes. Though people are leaving traditional cigarettes for the new trends, we need to understand that this is even more harming to our health. This fast spreading trend is alarming and we should be aware of it.

There Are No Treatments For Teenage Addicts

Inhaling vapes and cigarettes is undoubtedly pleasurable but the long term effects are to be taken notice about. As compared to cigarettes, vapes are typically smooth and topped up with flavours to attract youngsters. The sad part is that medications currently available in the market are not suitable for children or teens. Unfortunately, the larger amount of addicts are also teens. But whatever happens, we can’t leave them unattended and untreated.

People saying, that e-cigarettes are safe should stop and also ask e-cigarette companies to stop making these unauthorized risk claims.
