Andy Wilkinson believes that if you think smoking is an addictive poison, then you should feel the same about vaping.
The Wellington-based 31-year-old tech consultant was a smoker before he used vaping to quit his habit.
But then he found vaping even harder to give up and has seen the e-cigarette habit form in people much younger.
“I think the health risks in vaping are seriously understated. And what is worse is it is targeted to teenagers. I personally know several teenagers, who use high nicotine vape liquids. It tastes like candy floss but is strong enough to make your head spin,” Wilkinson said.
