Hey, now that you've met my friends and all, want to take a hit of my new vape pen?
The aerosol that comes out of a vape even sticks in the lungs (doesn't evaporate like vapor/gas), so the solid chemical particles stay and cause lung disease!

Oh no! What should I do?
I need to make a good decision, I've heard that vapes are really bad for you.
Come on, it's good for you! It doesn't hurt your lungs at all. It even tastes really good, which makes it healthier for you!
There could be nicotine in it, which is a super addictive drug. It attaches to brain cells and by releasing endorphins causes me to be in an awful cycle of using it, feeling good, feeling bad, and wanting more,
No it doesn't! The flavors in the vape add a ton of chemicals to the aerosol and make it MORE unhealthy!
