By Monica Black, Hypnotherapist Certified &Experienced in Stopping Vaping & Smoking
As we confront the growing epidemic of adolescent vaping, it is imperative that we recognise the seriousness of the situation and take decisive action to protect our youth.
From nicotine addiction to respiratory compromise, the dangers of vaping pose a significant threat to the health and future prospects of adolescents worldwide.
By raising awareness, advocating for stricter regulations, and providing support for those affected, we can work towards a future where vaping no longer casts a shadow over the lives of our youth, which is the reason why the UK government has taken the decision to ban disposal vapes for adolescents.
There is mounting evidence of health risks associated with disposable vapes, such as specific chemicals used in their production or the potential for higher nicotine delivery compared to other vaping devices, which is why today disposable vapes, because of their convenient size, attractive flavours and bright. colours, are particularly appealing to young people, and this has caused a significant increase in the young taking up vaping.
Disposable vapes contribute to environmental waste due to their single-use nature. There are also concerns about the environmental impact of discarded vaping products, including issues related to plastic pollution and waste management.
Banning disposable vapes could be part of broader public health or tobacco control strategies aimed at reducing smoking rates, preventing nicotine addiction, or addressing specific health concerns related to vaping.
Together, let us safeguard the health and well-being of the next generation, ensuring that they have the opportunity to thrive free from the harms of vaping.
