Why do I do it?

Often, people vape to fit in (almost a third of secondary 4 and 5 students vape). Or perhaps you’re not adequately informed of its consequences (only 22% of vapers acknowledge the moderate or high health risks associated with consumption). And last but not least, don’t underestimate the power of big tobacco. The industry targets and manipulates young people with bright colours, attractive flavours, and a tech appeal.
