Tobacco & Electronic Cigarettes

Tobacco and nicotine work together to keep your body hooked.


Tobacco and nicotine have a great relationship. Nicotine’s very addictive qualities keep you coming back for more. Combined with tobacco, these drugs cause detrimental health effects, including disease, disability, and death.

E-cigarettes are electronic smoking devices that can be filled with nicotine cartridges. These e-cigarettes emit an aerosol full of chemicals when smoked. Smoking e-cigarettes is often called “vaping” because they emit this harmful vapor into the air.

Warning signs to look for in users:

  • Bad breath, yellow teeth, and smoky scent on clothing.
  • When nicotine wears off, you may experience withdrawals, like depression and aggression.
