Signs of Vaping in Youth

Talk with your kids about the dangers of vaping, but also look for warning signs including:

  • Changes in emotions
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Scents of fruity odors on skin, breath and clothes
  • Strange cylinders, chargers or batteries lying around
  • Increased thrust due to dehydration
  • “Vaper’s Tongue” sudden increase in salty or spicy foods due to potential loss in flavor perception. 
  • Changes in caffeine intake. Combination of caffeine and vaping can lead to increased anxiety.
