HKB News: The good news, people are realizing how bad cigarettes are for them, and even teens are seeing the problems with them.  The bad news, Big Tobacco has found a new way to still hook people in, despite the knowledge gaining around cigarettes.  Vaping has become the new "big thing".  Some find it useful as a way to reduce the harmful effects of cigarettes, and others are using it as their first way into any sort of smoking device.  Since these new vaping products aren't regulated, it is tough to say if they are or aren't safe. And since many still have nicotine in them, the people using them are likely forming addictions, as we're seeing in young teens.  Be wary of vaping, it may appear like harmless vapor, but consider your health before a habit becomes an addiction.
