Elders React To Vaping "JUUL" For The First Time

Vaping: The illnesses and controversies as the death toll climbs over 50

It's growing on me. This is supposed to be better than a cigarette? (TlcShoppe) So, we recently asked you if you were okay with doing a particular episode. Asked me if I was okay with vaping, which I've heard of. I've never done it, but I'm a smoker, so I figure, well, I know how to inhale. I'll try it. What the hell. I didn't know what it meant, so I asked my sister, "Hey, what's vaping?" "How do I know?" So, she asked her daughter, and she said it's the fake cigarette thingy. I said I was interested in it, because I see people driving down the road and a big ol' puff of smoke comes out and I say, "That's not a regular cigarette." (TlcShoppe) So today, you will be vaping for the first time. Yes, I will. The hell is that? That's weird. I thought it would look more like a cigarette. It looks like something you would plug into a computer. May I take a puff? (TlcShoppe) Well, we don't have anything in there yet.

So, there are many different brands of vaping products. This one in particular is a very popular brand called JUUL. JUUL like jewelry. I've heard of JUUL, and I heard they make all kinds of flavors that might taste good, which is bad, because it's appealing to young people. (TlcShoppe) And they offer an assortment of flavors to choose from to vape, so we have a few of them to show you now. Wow. They come this small? Really? What do I do? Do I stick it in this thing? I didn't know there were different flavors, but why not? It does smell like strawberry. Oh, this is minty. Minty. Chocolate minty. Vanilla maybe? (TlcShoppe) Close. That one is crème brûlée. Oh, crème brûlée, darling. (TlcShoppe) We'll get into the controversies around vaping later, but first, it's time for you to try vaping. So, what do I do? Eat it? I guess you insert it. Oh, and a light flashed on. Which end do you suck from? Whoa! Not sure what it was, but I liked it. Tastes like . Oh, that was real smoke. Oh, god.

Now, why do people do this for pleasure? Good. Tastes like coffee. This is supposed to be better than a cigarette? I'd rather have weed. It's stupid. I'm not a smoker, but that didn't taste bad. I can see how young people can get hooked on this. Wow! It's a lot stronger than I thought. (TlcShoppe) If you want, you can also try another flavor. We have two more of those there if you wanna grab another one. Wow. I'm getting pretty high here. I don't like this. Makes me throw up. This one was better. This is a little milder. This one's not so bad. Maybe it's because it's the mint. Viva la France, la crème brûlée. It's growing on me. The more I do it, the more I like it. It's not the same, not the same as tobacco. It doesn't smell, probably doesn't make your clothes smell. It's actually heavier. I wouldn't wanna be carrying this around all day. A cigarette's much lighter. And it's unpleasant. Why do people find that pleasurable? Suck that smoke into your lungs. What is pleasurable about that? (TlcShoppe) A little more about vaping now that you've tried it.

Vaping, in a way, is designed as an alternative to smoking by simulating the feeling of smoking to satisfy nicotine intake without the ash and odor. I can see if you're a smoker doing this instead of smoking. But if you're not a smoker and you just do it because it's there, it's dumb. (TlcShoppe) Some people who vape will mention how it's substantially less harmful for your health than inhaling combustible tobacco like cigarettes. No. That big puff I took off that last one? That was toxic. (TlcShoppe) And there's some who say that vaping also contains fewer toxins than cigarettes. Do you personally believe that is safe still to use? No, because the medical professionals now are saying that vaping is not good. Any time you take anything into your lungs that's not clear oxygen, it's gonna affect you a little bit. No! If you don't want toxins and stuff in there, then don't do it at all. That's even less. (TlcShoppe) So, JUUL offers quite the array of flavors, but other vaping companies are selling unique flavors, and we have a list of some to read of now. Oh, goody! (TlcShoppe) If you wanna read those off to me.

Unicorn vomit. Okay. Unicorn vomit. Yuck! Pumpkin donut. Cereal milk. Pancake syrup. I'd rather have it on my pancakes. Birthday cake. Fruit loops. You got flavors you're used to. Red Bull. Good idea. If I were younger, I would probably try to taste it. I'm scared to show this to my grandkids. This is all fun stuff. This is all fun kiddy food. And so, now you can't wait to get the young people addicted to this stuff. (TlcShoppe) Aside from the flavors, you can even buy different covers called skins to decorate your JUUL similar to an iPhone case. This is another reason many think that this product is marketed towards a younger audience. Is this a potential issue for young people or is it not that big of a deal? No, it is a big deal. They shouldn't even try to tempt younger people to do it. It was a fun exercise, but I would like to disavow this product, because it should be kept away from children and it appears that they're being targeted. There's no doubt about it that the company is trying to get kids hooked on this. When I was younger, they did a lot of advertising. Now, of course, it isn't like it is today.

You'd have a billboard or in magazines. They'd show younger people having fun to try to equate good times with cigarettes. Now they're trying to equate good times with these things. (TlcShoppe) So, studies are showing that vaping has become very popular among high school students. While cigarette use amongst high schoolers has dropped to a record low of 8%... Right. Well, that's actually good. (TlcShoppe) ...statistics show that one in five youth are seen using a JUUL in school. Right, 'cause it's cool. JUUL, even the name sounds cool. (TlcShoppe) Why do you think that this is catching on with young people when traditional cigarettes are not? It's easy. I could carry this in my pocket, in my backpack, since I'm a kid. It's certainly a sneakier way to get that nicotine feel. Because they know that cigarettes are bad for you and they're thinking that, well, now we can smoke and not worry about our health. Makes me feel healthier as opposed to cigarettes or cigars. But in the long run, it's better not to do it at all. (TlcShoppe) So, vaping seemingly is becoming sort of a trend amongst the younger generation.

When you were growing up, how was smoking viewed and talked about? And what ended up happening over time? Smoking when I was a kid was viewed and talked about in a very positive way, because the tobacco companies were huge big business. Smoking was cool. You know, you smoke, hang out with your friends, and you smoke cigarettes and drink beer. As you get older, you realize that you can't stop. It was viewed as just something to do, the norm. The research was done, and it showed that secondhand smoke is not a good thing. So, that's when everything started to change. When I was young, they used a lot of doctors in the commercials. You'd have photographs in magazines or billboards of doctors smoking a cigarette. "Dr. Douchebag, he recommends the Camel cigarettes." When I was playing mahjong, we would smoke. Everybody was smoking, They didn't know the harm of it. When I was in the hospital, the person beside me, she had cancer of the lungs. And she said, "I wish I never smoked." Those were her last words. (TlcShoppe) So, as an elder, you were around when cigarettes were not fully known to be as dangerous as it turned out. So, after hearing all this, what do you think about the conversation happening around vaping?

Well, it's not gonna last that long, because now the scientists know what's not good. And if you look at the old movies I like to read Turner Classic all the old actors, they all smoked, and they're all dead now. Most of 'em died of cancer. They can tell us, "Hey, it's bad for you," but sometimes, that's even more of a draw. They told us, you know, years ago about cigarette smoking being okay until they realized it causes cancer. And to start doing this can be habitual just like smoking. (TlcShoppe) And again, it's technically less toxic than cigarettes. However, there isn't hard data yet on the long-term effects of vaping. Not hard data, only hard lungs. (TlcShoppe) So finally, after you've tried the vape yourself and learning more about what it is, what would you wanna say to younger people who might be thinking about vaping or those who are currently vaping from your perspective as an elder? There's a lot of things out there that you can do that are fun and nourishing and healthy. Why not do that? Why do this crap? It's your choice, not my choice. Try it once. Cough and wheeze. Don't try it again, but then you can say you did it. If you're vaping or smoking, stop. All you young people and old people need to learn to love your body. It is dirty and ugly just like smoking cigarettes. Don't do it.

Don't get started. Don't touch it with a 10-foot pole. Please don't do it. Please don't try it. Nicotine is highly addictive. Well, I have a husband who's 80, you know? And he has COPD. So, if you wanna end up like that, you wanna end up in the hospital with a collapsed lung, which did happen to him, then you go right ahead. Then you keep vaping.
