  1. Any kind of smoking is bad for your overall health ! I’m so glad that I’m straight edge for life !! I love my coffee !! I love music ! I love watching my favorite celebrities!! I love travel ! My fun is listening to music and dancing at my fav songs and socializing with people !! And not using social media ! It’s a waste ! I’m glad I don’t use social media apps anymore for now

  2. Why don't you put an update out to this video since the cause of EVALI has clearly been documented and proven by the CDC? You made a video to scare people away from vaping but don't come back with the truth. Nicotine vaping is at least 95-99% safer than smoking deadly combustible cigarettes!

  3. Well the UK where I am from and have been since birth have tested vape kits and we are under strict regulation in other words if one wants to make e-juice (e liquids) or wants to develop a new vape kit they have to apply by law to the UK government for all the legal reasons etc. It's more likely for you guys across the pond in the states that you have no clear regulation and people are vaping untested liquids and vaping untested CBD products. I vape myself but still have cigarrettes and tobacco on occasion but what I do know and is from my own opinion that I don't cough as much as I used to do and its cut down my tobacco use a lot since I have been vaping. Us in the UK refer to our own health advice/experts from Public Health England. You guys need to do intensive testing etc. But you have to question the ratio of people dying from vaping to the ratio of people dying from smoking related illnesses every year whether thats here in the UK or in the USA. If vaping and vape kits were so dangerous then why was they put on the market around the world as a safe tool to cut down on tobacco use and a safe tool to try and stop smoking, the problem is that people are scared of 'New' inventions. This is only my opinion but my health has improved since I have been vaping, no more coughing fits and no more chest pains or anything from smoking.

  4. Kids Smoke Cigarettes instead. Cigarettes are far more safer than the dangerous Vape Juice
    Vape Ingredients

    1. Nicotine
    2. Vegetable Glycerin
    3. Propylene glycol
    4. Natural Flavors

    Cigarettes have much safer ingredients

    Acetone—found in nail polish remover

    Acetic acid—an ingredient in hair dye

    Ammonia—a common household cleaner

    Arsenic—used in rat poison

    Benzene—found in rubber cement and gasoline

    Butane—used in lighter fluid

    Cadmium—active component in battery acid

    Carbon monoxide—released in car exhaust fumes

    Formaldehyde—embalming fluid

    Hexamine—found in barbecue lighter fluid

    Lead—used in batteries

    Naphthalene—an ingredient in mothballs

    Methanol—a main component in rocket fuel

    Nicotine—used as an insecticide

    Tar—material for paving roads

    Toluene—used to manufacture paint

  5. It's more complicated than you think. It all starts from deadly juices on counterfeit pod cartridges and all that black market stuff. For now, your best choice if you vape is to ONLY buy juices and cartridges from reputable sellers.

  6. "The best solution is to quit smoke all-together"…. if only all the doctors know how difficult it was.
    "Stick to the conventinal cig guys, cause we've known more about it, and also because it makes a lot of money…".
    Profit for tobacco industries, check.
    Profit for doctors, check.
    Demerit for consumer, check.

    At the end of the day it's all about money… i mean come on, why in the world every vape related stuff(e-juice, atomizer, etc.) which doesn't have anything to do with tobacco, are still deemed as "Tobacco Products" by the FDA?.

  7. Watching while vaping Bad Drip Farley Narley. If you get Vape juice for Ejuice as you might call it from the black market it is lethal to you. If you know what's in it and it's made locally and you know who made it and it's made in a clean lab and you know what's in it it is nowhere near as lethal as a cigarette. They are just mad because big tobacco is losing money and so is Big Pharma. The idiots who are dying from vaping are using Black Market vape juice or e-juice because it's cheaper. It's sort of that you get what you pay for Theory. If you're paying less than $20 for a 60ml bottle a vape juice then you're using Black Market product that is no good. I was a half a pack a day cigarette smoker that slowly eased up to one pack a day. I was on the brink of COPD, I already have asthma. My doctor became concerned that I was going to develop emphysema and possibly lung cancer. I took on vaping April 2nd 2014, I have not picked up a cigarette since. My doctor is impressed by my oxygen levels. He did an x-ray on my lungs. My lungs are clear of tar and have healthy cell regrowth. This guy does not know what he's talking about in the video. I wouldn't encourage a child to vape but if you are 21 years of age and older and have the desire for nicotine because you're trying to stop smoking not only does my doctor encourage it but I do also. Stop burning the paper and stick to the vapor, just don't be a dumbass and get black-market products because that will kill you

  8. I respect what you are saying but I'm going to vape for the next year because I'm lowering my nicotine on it so I only bought it two weeks ago and I'm on 12 at the moment so I'm going to lower my nicotine overtime I hope we find out that is not too bad

  9. Its been about a year now, I'm here to say we have figured this out. Nicotine vaping is still 95% less harmful than smoking, and you won't get this illness from regular vaping. The news refuses to make a story on this because it doesn't fit their narrative. Long story short, vaping can save your life, don't think twice on switching if you smoke cigarettes, and don't start smoking or vaping if you don't already do one. Why gain a nicotine addiction?

  10. Hey IDIOT I’ve been smoking 15 fucking years and I switched over to vaping and I can actually workout without dying for a breath of air. I don’t stink like an ashtray I don’t have asthma anymore LITERALLY EVERYTHING IS BETTER.
    You shouldn’t put anything into your lungs, I know this, but for the tobacco industry to go after vaping is illegal. Tobacco companies kick money to every state that state makes money off of Marlboro camels and every company and the states are going after vaping because they are LOSING MONEY BIG TIME!!!! Put whatever you want into your body ANYTHING, Everything should be LEGAL as long as you’re not harming people go for it. Fucking nanny state
