Have any of your friends tried vaping?

13th September 2019

HEADTEACHERS are asking parents to be on the lookout for children as young as 11 vaping, and people are warning e-cigarettes can cause illness and death.

The headteachers from a number of schools are concerned because vaping is much easier to hide than smoking cigarettes, which has been pretty much wiped out on school grounds. They’ve told parents to watch out for e-cigarettes that look like flash drives, with sweet-smelling smoke that can disappear in seconds.

The warnings follow reports that five people have died in the US from lung illnesses linked to vaping. Officials there have advised people to stop vaping.

Public Health England (PHE) has been asked by doctors to review its safety advice for e-cigarettes. PHE said it wasn’t going to change its advice that the devices are much less harmful than smoking.

Ben Stitchman, head of Holmfirth High in Huddersfield, told parents he feared vaping was harmful for young people. “It seems to me likely that in a few years we will be told that they are highly dangerous,” he said.

None of my friends have tried vaping because they know it is bad for you. Everyone should be aware of their mental health and appropriately choose to do the right things.

my friends don`t vape , we are in primary school ( primary 6 , English year 5) ! though some of the older kids might vape.

I don't vape and neither do the people around me but awareness and understanding about this situation is important. People should make the right choices when it comes down to their health and safety, and young people like me should be careful and think about the effects of things like this.

All the people in my yr now think its cool that they vape because they are 5 yrs underage and its just a rebellious stance from here they got interested and some have started to smoke. Its gotten out of hand but now its just kind of a given!

Adding to my comment before, I understand, however, that people have their reasons to do so.
