Abstract

The purpose behind my graphic piece is to highlight the impending consequences of smoking, whether it be vaping, juuling, or cigarettes, for youth and young adults. My aim is also to emphasize the threat that smoking causes to the individual’s lifespan and chance of disease. My personal views on smoking are in strong opposition. Coming from a family of cigarette and e-cigarette smokers, I’ve been subject to secondhand smoke my entire life, and have experienced the fear of my family members’ lifespans as well as my own, which is why I’d like to perpetuate the warning against the use of the new and old forms of nicotine smoking. According to the CDC, tobacco remains the leading preventable cause of disease-related death. Due to e-cigarettes, vapes, and mods being such a new form of drug consumption, there isn’t an abundant amount of evidence to support how e-cigarettes are in direct correlation to certain diseases. However, there has been now 380 deaths reported and confirmed by the CDC to be related to vape-caused illness in the United States, and India has found the research so important that they’ve put a nation-wide ban on all e-cigarettes. The intent of my graphic is to inform the youth about the discoveries about the harmful effects of vaping, as well as clear the haze that has been perpetrated by e-cigarette companies about how dangerous they really are to a person's health, especially the youth.
