• TEENS AND SMOKING

     

    Smoking continues to be a health concern for adolescents.  Cigarettes and beginning smoking at an early age are associated with a lifetime of health issues and, for many, repeated struggles to stop.

    Vaping and E-cigarettes are a growing problem for middle and high school students.  These products are attractive as they come in a variety of flavors and are often advertised as a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes.  In truth, they contain compounds that may be addictive, damage the lungs, and are not safe for anyone.
