Don’t be stupid.
You know how damaging that can be, right?
I’ve always been baffled by topics like juuling or doing drugs. Those things, and more, clearly have a negative effect on your life. Teachers warn about it, parents warn about it, the news, peers. But still some people choose to go down that path and start, for example, juuling.
Why. WHY? So many people have reiterated to you that juuling is bad. Why are you still making a bad choice and buying yourself one? I know (hope…) that the majority of teenagers are probably still nicotine-free and don’t juul or do drugs. But for the others that do juul, I have one question:
Are you stupid?
Please. Don’t give me your cheap excuses. You did it to fit in. You were bored and wanted to try it out. You liked the flavors. You saw your friend doing it. Uh huh. I got it. Well, let me tell ya:
You can fit in (and stand out!) by studying hard and excelling in school, you can cure your boredom by taking up a healthy hobby (like jogging!), you can taste mango and watermelon and whatever else flavor there is by…….. eating the fruit, and you see your friends getting lung cancer in ten years, so you definitely want that too. Check, check, check and check!
I’m so fed up with you idiots, y’know?
I’m not sure how I feel about big companies like Juul and how they’re handling this nonsense with minors. I mean, part of me knows Juul is bad and the company should be scolded. They could make their products less easily-accessible, or not market it as such a tantalizing thing to own. But you have to remember that their products are meant for smokers trying to get off cigarettes. It’s not ENTIRELY Juul’s problem that millions of minors decided the skinny black stick would look good on them too. I also feel like I should almost… apologize to Juul? Say, “sorry, a bunch of my peers think they’re the same as smokers and now you have to clean up after their mess.”
“You keep warning that Juuls are only meant for smokers but nobody is getting the message.”
“Sorry we’re such an ignorant generation.”
“But we’re spending so much money on you, are your warnings really just to appease the public? Do you really care if we end up with black lungs and a nicotine addiction?”
