A Dangerous Game

You may think vaping is safer than smoking, but the truth is that 99% of e-cigarettes contain nicotine, making them highly addictive. In fact, e-cigarette use among kids is strongly linked to the use of other tobacco products.

Effects of Nicotine

The Brain Change

Nicotine is especially harmful for kids, literally changing the way their brain develops. Immediate and long-term effects can include mood disorders, greater inability to focus, lower impulse control, depression, and anxiety. 

Highly Addictive

Decades of research shows that nicotine is as addictive as heroin, putting vapers at risk of addiction within days of first use.

A Dangerous Experiment

Studies show that teens who start with e-cigarettes are more likely to try regular cigarettes, alcohol, and other substances.

Teens are nearly 7X more likely to vape nicotine than adults.

Over 70,000 Utah teens have tried e-cigarettes.

Almost 70% of Utah teens who vape also use alcohol.

Vaping isn’t Effective for Quitting Smoking

You Can Quit

When it comes to quitting tobacco, the U.S. Surgeon General and the CDC have reported that using vapes isn’t an effective way to quit. There are better ways to quit, like getting support from an Online Coach, the Quit Line (1-800-QUIT-NOW), a custom quit plan, or Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).
