Nicotine addiction

    Nicotine is in most vapes, including JUUL. Nicotine is very addictive. The more you vape, the more your brain and body get used to having nicotine, and the harder it is to go without it. When you go without vaping, the nicotine level in your bloodstream drops, which may cause unpleasant feelings, physical symptoms, and strong urges to vape. This is nicotine addiction.-

    It wasn't until my freshman year of college in 2015 when the juul starting becoming popular around my area in ocean county NJ. The juul unlike the previous vapes that existed was sleek, concealable and sold at most gas stations and corner stores. It quickly took over the teenage and young adults lives by the extremely addicting qualities of the nicotine. Most vape users never even smoked a cigarette in their life but vape because it is the "cool" thing to do. Now, i hear of kids in middle school starting to vape and this angers me. The effects on young teens smoking and becoming hooked on nicotine is a major issue that needs to be addressed in schools.
