I'm vaping right now to stop smoking and it helps a lot, if you smoke and don't know how to stop try vaping but it doesn't work for everyone, cigarette is a bitch I'm not that old but I'd wake up with my lungs hurting sooo much. *KIDS DON'T SMOKE*

Cringe: Trying to appeal to kids using outdated memes, which actually ends up encouraging kids to continue rebelling against this painfully out of touch messaging and smoke/vape anyway. Dub: Just be honest, bring celebrities on as a friendly face, don't try so hard to be 'down with the kids' - even call out how supporting the tobacco industry is a moral wrong in other ways. *S W A G*: Through CIA-assisted corporate espionage hijack the advertising departments of major tobacco and vaping companies, and continue to make the cringey ads - thus through reverse psychology making kids associate smoking/vaping with the painfully out of touch messaging, making kids look uncool for smoking/vaping.

I think one of the reasons so many people drink monster and vape in my year group is because the popular jock kids do it and so the kids who worry about not being cool do it and then the kids like me who really don't care and stop the other kids who worry just by sticking to their gum and coke

I can't believe you didn't mention Ryan Higa aka NigaHiga in the "TeeHee" shirt pointing out the barfing unicorn. Also I think there's a possibility that the plan was to have kids associate smoking / vaping with cringe imagery, so maybe they'll think smoking/vaping is also cringe. But that obviously didn't work

Saying that the reason that there's vape flavors that are tasty is that their marketing is children would be the same thing as saying that because sky vodka makes cake flavors they are exclusively making those flavors for toddlers... The Vape industry started with adults mixing their own blends at home in the flavors that ended up on the market we're just the most popular ones. Jewel is really the only company that has spent a lot of time and money marketing to children specifically.

Funny how they are at a house party but the worst thing truth can imagine is on my God smoking cigarettes.... the fuck how stupid can the people that run these ads be there is much worse(depends on perspective) shit going down at house parties as a teenager were a myriad of shit happening smoking cigarettes being an after thought.

I don't see the reasoning behind fruity flavored vape juice being a way to target teens. Do adults not like fruity flavors? It would be the same as saying flavored alcohols are being targeted to teens. But, I personally do vape and did start when I was a senior in high school, but I didn't start because of the flavors, I started because it was a trend and I had already been exposing my body to other substances. It's very easy to try other drugs once you start one, hence the name "gateway drug". I have now been sober from drugs aside from nicotine and I have been cutting down on it going from 50mg down to 3mg and plan to use nicotine free juice and get rid of this habit. I highly recommend not trying any drug, because not only did it consume 4-5 years of my life, but I've easily spent thousands on drugs and vape juice, I wish I could go back in time and not start this nasty habit. I could have bought my first car years ago, instead of spending my paychecks on drugs. If any of you are attempting to quit I wish you the best of luck, because I know how hard it can be. It will be extremely difficult at first, but your dependence will slowly fade, you just have to not give in to it's temptation.

i remember when i smoked, and every time october comes around, theres this big campaign called "stoptober," and you'd get that shit forced on you on every turn, so i'd be like "fuck you! i do what i want," and i'd smoke more. every bad ad calling for the youth to not smoke, i'd feel like a rebel and cool for going against it because "fuck you boomers" or whatever. i was up to a pack a day super quickly after initially starting. i quit almost exactly one year ago and i am so glad i did, the immediate differences in my lungs (i can breathe??), i cough less, and overall i feel more energetic. i dont get angry outbursts when i dont get to smoke (if i didnt smoke about every hour/1,5 hours i'd get reaaaal pissy.) what it took for me start to quit smoking is not necessarily a campaign, though some were helpful during the process, giving out information and tips and stuff. i mostly quit bc of my boyfriend, who i was going to visit overseas. he has really bad lungs, and i didn't want to hurt him with second hand smoke, and just the smell of cigarettes would make him very very nauseous. and hey, turns out it actually has benefits for me, too! in the end i never did visit my bf because of the pandemic, but i DID quit smoking, and im overall a healthier person, and now i likely won't die of lung cancer due to smoking, which is great because finally having a will to live after years and then dying of lung cancer, that would just be sad. it also saves me a METRIC FUCK TON of money. like dude that shit is so expensive. if youre like me and you dont want to quit smoking for yourself, find another reason. maybe someone who cares about you, maybe the money (it was a combination of money+bf for me. no shame in it, youre young and probably going broke. tobacco is disgustingly expensive). as a bonus, you'll thank yourself in the future, i promise you.

@saoirse ok they really dont help cause most therapists have nothing to really say but to get on meds and meds only switch you to a different and more lethal addiction (speaking form experience) I feel like it's really a thing where you have to choose the lesser of two evils and personally I would rather hit my pen then pop pills even if im taken the pills at a regulated time it takes more of an affect on my day to day and mental health

They're likely just throwing stuff to the wall in order to try to go viral, which in all fairness is a step up from using outdated memes which have no chance of being viral at that point in time.

i think the best way to get teens to quit is not by trying to turn them against e cigarets, but by turning them against big tabaco. make them the cringey adults trying to make kids think they are cool so they can make money. show them as the money hungry industry they are who sacrifice people to boost the bottom line.

Only the adds that show the consequences of long term smoking are the only ones that work. The problem is there aren't really enough long-term studies of vaping to show us the negatives. So they resort to cringe adds that only want to make us vape.

I wasn't very cool in middle school/ high school because I didn't smoke weed (I'm black btw, went to a predominantly black school.) My best friend in the world did tho. He's been smoking weed/cigarettes since he was 13. One day back in 2019 (I was 20, he was 19 ironically) he tells me that if he could go back in time he would've never started smoking, he said "I can feel it in my lungs, that I fucked myself up."

Back in high school there used to be mandatory meetings they took out of our lunch to yet again tell us "one person to a bathroom stall" and honey if you think it's worth it to cram yourself into a shit smeared closet with your buddy you do you... but what are people gonna think when they see two sets of legs and hear you giggling in there? I know when I was a high schooler I thought that kind of desperation was hilarious.

I was sitting on the couch hanging out with nicotine nic. He grabs his vape puts it up to his mouth, then pulls it away and stares at it. His arm reaches over to me and he says “you want some?”. “No” I say, “I don’t wanna get addicted to nicotine”. “Good” he says pulling back the vape, “that was a test”. He then proceeds to take a puff.

A lot of people are talking the negative effect of cigarettes from a medical standpoint but there is a large financial one as well. 1) Nicotine is addictive so no "I will do it in a small amount" bullshit will do. 2) Referring to point 1), let's say an average smoker uses ~ 1-2 packs a day, so that can in the long-term fuck up your financial situation if you don't have a lot of income. 3) Stop, just get help

More anxiety, less money. That's what smoking causes. Repercussions feel far away. You need money, and you need to not run out. That's a shit load of planning and anxiety - more so when you are young.

One of the most impactful things was family members, who smoked, telling me not to. They explained the health issues and that they knew that, but bc it was addictive they couldn't stop or it was extremely hard to. It also doesn't paint smokers as "bad people", but people who unfortunately got addicted bc of how tobacco companies targeted them.

I smoked for 2 years and just in those 2 years I started coughing up weird mucus, just randomly coughing, experiencing random head aches , head aches after smoking. Things I figured was "normal smoking stuff" but then decided "I literally dont have to do this or deal with this" even today sometimes I'll crave a cigarette even though it's been 4 years and even in that shocks and scares me that these things are so terribly addicting and brain altering.

Vaping is even harder to quit than smoking in my opinion. Its easier to hide, more accessible, and the nicotene content is insane. I started when I was 17 and still get cravings at 25. It isn't worth it for sure.
