Should I take up smoking to get off of vaping?
With the recent news of deaths and critical illnesses being caused by vaping, should users of these products consider taking-up smoking cigarettes in order to break free from vaping? Of course not. The way to break free from nicotine and all of its consequences is to just stop delivering nicotine from any source.

Note: In this video I stated that kids who vape are two to four times more likely to take up smoking than kids who do not vape. The higher-end statistic is from a statement recently put out by The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. The National Institute of Health reports that teens who vape are 3.79 times more likely to smoke than those who do not. Other sources say the risks are double to triple for youth who vape compared to those who don’t.
