It is really aimed at parents, but good information for the students need to hear, and some will see the described behaviors in themselves.  The thing that stuck out in my brain is that it takes an average of 6 times to quit. 
 
September 22-27
 
There are 2 things this week.
 
1.  I have attached an anti - vaping commercial
 
2.  Follow this link to a CNN report.  It is called " Disguised vaping devices are hoodwinking parents and schools"  The article is for you to read only.  Don't really want to give our kids any new ideas in case they don't know about "vaporwear" or " vape watches" yet.  The video is what you are to show your kids.  
 
 
Here the link from Good Morning America.
