Don't be fooled: E-cigarettes are as bad as regular cigarettes!

Electronic cigarettes, or "e-cigs", are battery-powered cigarettes. Even though e-cigs might seem healthier than regular cigarettes, they are not safe. E-cigs don't have all the tar and smoke that cigarettes have, but they still have nicotine in them. Nicotine is addictive, and that means e-cigs can be addictive too (it's difficult to stop using them). Nicotine also has harmful effects on your health. Some people get side-effects like vomiting, mouth or throat pain, or coughing.

E-cigs have liquid nicotine in them, which is poisonous to touch or swallow. And because e-cigs are very new, we don't know yet what happens when you smoke them for a long time.

Think about why you want to smoke e-cigs.

  • Is it because you think they are healthier than normal cigarettes?
  • Is it because your friends are smoking them?
  • Is it because you like the feeling or the look?


Try to figure out whether it's worth it for you to start, or to carry on. It might feel good and look good right now – but know that there are risks too – it's bad for your health and the health of those around you!

Hi there FIFI, yes it is true that drugs may make them feel good for the moment but it can be dangerous when that feeling is gone away because it doesn't last long.
