Do You Know the Signs of Vaping Use?

If you’re concerned that your teen may be vaping, educating yourself on the signs will help you identify the habit and open the door for conversation.

This awareness campaign is brought to you in partnership with Empower Tusc.

In Tuscarawas County, 5% of youth were identified as current smokers (increased to 12% in kids 17 and older). The most common tobacco products used are Vapes, Juuls, and e-cigarettes.

Warning Signs of Vaping Use

  • An increased thirst
  • Frequent nose bleeds
  • They appear to be cutting back on caffeine
  • Increased acne
  • Finding unfamiliar items that look like a USB drive or pen
  • Smelling an unexplained sweet scent on their person
  • Finding discarded JUUL pods
As always, it is important to be open and honest with your teen. Make yourself available to talk with them frequently about peer pressure, tobacco use, and other hurdles they may face during adolescence.
