It’s Still Tobacco

Nicotine comes from the tobacco plant. Even though it comes in many forms, all tobacco products are addictive, including vapes.
The tobacco plant is the source of nicotine found in all products — cigarettes, dip or chew, hookah, and all electronic cigarettes (vapes). Talk or chat with a coach to help you quit using all tobacco.

Learn the Truth

Vaping companies try to convince you that their products are safe. But the truth is every time you vape, you breathe in chemicals that hurt your lungs and heart and leave you feeling stressed. Flavored products, like mint and mango, sound fun, but vaping can really hurt your brain and lungs.

Are Juuls or Puff Bars Safe?

JUULs and Puff Bars are just other types of e-cigarette products with better looking packaging and flavors. They are directly marketed to youth, which can hurt youth’s brain and lungs. JUUL is currently facing a lawsuit alleging that they knowingly sold contaminated pods.

Flavors like mango and mint sound delicious, but we know…

Nicotine from a vape travels quickly from the lungs into the bloodstream…

Vaping might make us feel relaxed and happy for a few minutes, but the truth is…

Vaping is more than just water vapor. In fact...

Vaping might make us feel relaxed and happy for a few minutes, but the truth is…

Most vapes contain nicotine, which affects your mood and impacts brain health. The longer nicotine is used, the brain loses more of its ability to deal with hard or stressful feelings. Vaping companies use nicotine because it’s addictive, which means you’ll crave your vape, making you a customer for life! Don’t let vaping companies steal your time, money, and health.

Flavors like mango and mint sound delicious, but we know…

Vaping companies use different flavors to hide the nicotine and chemicals in vapes, which are used to hook your brain and get you addicted. Those flavors are hiding some pretty gross chemicals that can leave our throat feeling scratchy and irritated.

Vaping is more than just water vapor. In fact...

Toxic chemicals and metals flow into your lungs every time you vape. Once you’ve breathed them in, these chemicals weaken your lungs and increase your chances for coughs, phlegm (yuck!) and bronchitis. Vaping has also been linked to asthma. We’re now learning that vaping can increase your risk of having asthma. For youth and teens with asthma, vaping can make your symptoms worse.

Nicotine from a vape travels quickly from the lungs into the bloodstream…

It enters your brain in about 8-10 seconds. Nicotine is a type of stimulant, which can make you feel more awake in the short term, but it affects your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. The more nicotine you have, the worse your sleep quality will be. This tricks your brain into thinking that you need more nicotine to stay alert the next day, meaning you’ll feel even more tired and drag your feet.
