Vaping does what?! @Vice reports that in a study done on mice, vapes changed the lungs on the cellular and molecular levels. Bad news, vapes are often shown as the lesser of two evils next to cigarettes, are starting to show evidence that they are just as bad as ciggies.

Each day you wake up can be the start of something fresh and new. Like today for example, if you vape and want to quit, today can be the start of your life without vaping. It might not be easy, but it’ll be worth it.
Nearly half of high school students reported that they vape EVERY DAY! That’s a significant percentage! Lowering that number is important to us; if you’re a young person who vapes or smokes and wants to quit, hit us up by texting “VAPEFREE” to 873373.
How does Big Tobacco target certain people? From flavoring to design to the color of the packaging, these are subtle ways Big Tobacco sucks you in. Don’t fall for these tactics.
As a society, we frequently talk about the importance of mental health. Vaping can negatively affect your mental health, increasing symptoms of depression and anxiety. YIKES. Keep your mental health in check and stop vaping; if you need help leaving it behind, text “VAPEFREE” to “873373”.
