As a registered nurse, I know that teens are very susceptible to the effects of nicotine; smoking cessation is especially for important for that age group. Also,people need to know that smoking and all of its forms, is harmful to your health. We do not want to ever give the impression that e-cigarettes or chewing tobacco are safer alternatives.
On a more emotional note, my dear mother, a wonderful and caring woman, died early as a result of smoking for many years. I am making this statement to you in my loving memory of her.
