VAPING AND OTHER SMOKING PRODUCTS AND CHILDREN

I. Introduction

A. Attention Grabber

A. Children, adolescents or often adults believe vaping is safer than smoking regular cigarettes. That is wrong, vaping also has nicotine which is highly addictive just like regular cigarettes. The only difference is that it is electronic.

A. Liquid e-cigarettes can cause nicotine poisoning to younger children or pets when drunk, sniffed, or touched.

B. Statistics (Nataliya)

B. According to Doughlass & Solecki (2017), National Youth Tobacco Survey revealed an increase in e-cigarette use among students of 6 to 12 years of age from 1.1% in 2011 to 2.1% in 2012. In high school students between the years 2011 to 2014 the increase went up rapidly to 13.4% and in middle school students the use increased to 3.9%.

B. Children and adolescents are often not aware not vaping is the same thing as smoking since it also contains nicotine. Children often think they’re not harming their body and only tasting the flavors and having fun. Doughlass & Solecki (2017) mention that 60% of surveyed teenagers in one study said their main reason for vaping is “just flavoring” as they were unaware that e-cigarettes contain nicotine while another 10% said they are using them to quit smoking regular cigarettes. In this case they’re uninformed that e-cigarettes also contain nicotine so vaping will not help to quit smoking regular cigarettes but will only make the addiction worse.
