The Vaping Ban

  • There have been reports of a strange lung illness related to vaping, which caused over 50 deaths, leading to multiple media reports over the dangers of e-cigarettes, and several flavors of vaping being banned in the US.
  • Further investigation of the vaping deaths showed that it involved people mixing harmful additives and drugs from the black market, making a lethal cocktail.
  • In general, e-cigarettes which are legal and used to deliver nicotine aren't as dangerous as portrayed by many media reports.

Our moods and emotions play a powerful role in our behavioral choices and health.

Extensive studies show that sadness is related to tobacco use, with people wanting to puff away more frequently while being sad.

IDEA

In girls, frequent social-media use seemed to harm health when it led to either cyberbullying and/or inadequate sleep and exercise. 

But these factors did not seem to have the same effect on boys, and the study didn’t pick up on specific ways that social networks could be harming them.

Set Better Goals

Be specific on how you’ll implement goals into your daily life. Examining how you’ve responded to the situation in the past and determining what you can do to avoid reverting to the old habit, might be all it takes to break the habit.

It’s easier to react based on something you’ve already planned out in the past versus trying to come up with a new plan on the fly.
