Vape – Rethink Tobacco
No Nic New Year!

No Nic New Year!

Let's Do THIS! When you vape you're inhaling straight up TOXINS! Skip it and quit being nic sic! Tell your family & friends you're ditching vape. Quitting can be tough—so ask for support—especially during the first 4 or 5 days when withdrawl and cravings will be the worst. Get rid of ALL vape products or anything that might make you think of using them. Use the Four D's to fight cravings:
  1. Delay (the urge to vape will pass—really)
  2. Deep breathe (3, 5 or 10 —whatever it takes)
  3. Drink water (chew gum or pop some mints)
  4. Do something (walk, go outside, do 5 push ups—take your mind off vaping)
Don't give up. You can do this. Steezy! If you need extra support, talk to a Quit Coach (they can help anyone 13+ put a quit plan together) or step down gradually with FREE medication when you order a Kickstart Kit

You’re 5X More Likely To Get COVID If You Vape

Ditch Vape
COVID-19: People who smoke or vape may be at increased risk

8 REASONS TO AVOID THE APE IN VAPE.

  1. Brain damage is irreversible
  2. Loss of brain function
  3. Addicted before you know it
  4. Gateway to smoking
  5. Toxic chemicals and metals
  6. Weak immune system
  7. Nicotine overload
  8. Blood vessel damage

Know the Vape Risks

1. Causes irreversible brain damage: The part of the brain that’s responsible for decision making and impulse control is not yet fully developed until age 25. Teens and young adults are at risk for long-lasting effects including nicotine addiction, mood disorders, and permanent lowering of impulse control.

2. Causes attention and learning problems: Nicotine also changes the way synapses are formed, which can harm the parts of the brain that control attention and learning.

3. Nicotine in vape is highly addictive: Each time a new memory is created or a new skill is learned, stronger connections – or synapses – are built between brain cells. Young people’s brains build synapses faster than adult brains. Because addiction is a form of learning, adolescents can get addicted more easily than adults.

4. Gateway to smoking: Kids who vape are 4x more likely to start smoking which can lead to a lifetime of nicotine addiction.

5. Toxic chemicals and metals: E-cigarette aerosol isn’t harmless water vapor – it can contain toxic chemicals and metals.

6. Weakens immune system: Vaping weakens the immune system, increasing susceptibility to all kinds of illnesses and infections.

7. Nicotine overload: Teens may not realize the level of nicotine they are inhaling. For example, 1 JUUL pod = 20 cigarettes worth of nicotine.

8. Blood vessel damage: Vape that contains nicotine can increase blood pressure and heart rate and cause arteries to stiffen up. That means a higher risk for a cardiovascular event (think heart attack).

Vape is not safer than cigarettes
Can’t candy coat the facts

Big Tobacco’s After Your Sweet Tooth

Tricks, not treats.

At first glance, it’s hard to tell, isn’t it? Well, that’s no accident. Confusion works in the tobacco companies’ best interest. They WANT you to think products like chew tobacco, vape, mods, JUUL pods, and flavored cigars are as fun and as harmless as candy bars are to kids. That’s because tobacco products are becoming less and less popular and tobacco companies are trying to get people addicted to nicotine in other ways. And it’s working. A recent study right here in South Dakota reports that 47% of young adults have tried e-cigarettes. Most of them are people who would never even think of smoking cigarettes. It’s a trick, not a treat. Nicotine in any form is poison and ADDICTIVE! Don’t buy it.
