If you are under 18 (or 21 some states) and vaping you can go fuck yourself. https://ift.tt/2nt8cyu

This goes out to anyone underage in this sub. Smoking cigarettes was 100% going to kill me and because underage kids think vaping is "cool" my option to help me quit is being taken away. People going back to cigarettes and dying is partially on you, irresponsible store owners, and corrupt politicians. You should all share the blame equally.

Before commenting please read the updates!

Updates:

-Some of you seem to think I am only blaming the kids but the other responsible parties can "go fuck themselves too". Why are we ignoring the fact that the youths decisions are a part of this? Why should they be exempt from knowing that their actions are having an effect on others who are trying to stop smoking something that will without a doubt kill them (cigarettes)? You guys who are giving them a pass are the same as the politicians. "Oh wont someone think of the children?!?!?!"

-Yes, I was a kid when I began smoking. Yes, I was stupid. Yes, this post may seem hypocritical. However when I started smoking cigarettes it did not impede on an adults ability to use smoking cessation products. I was not out there buying nicorette gum and commit lozenges to get a "head buzz". Unfortunately today's kids are doing that when it comes to vaping as an alternative to smoking or as a method to quit.

-No I am not putting the full blame on the kids. There are many parties at fault when it comes to this issue. I am not using them as a scapegoat as one user commented. They should know that their actions have repercussions beyond just them deciding its their life and body. With that being said i will say it again: They can go fuck themselves along with the politicians, irresponsible shop owners, big tobacco, and bad parents.

-For those still trying to argue that nicotine is relaxing please read this as i wont be responding to those comments anymore:

-I have taken courses in both brain chemistry and drugs and the brain and i can with 100% certainty assure you all that nicotine is a system stimulant (dopamine agonist) it has zero effect when it comes to relaxation. In fact it does just the opposite. The relaxation you feel is due to the easing of the withdrawal symptoms it causes. When ingesting nicotine the dopamine receptors in your brain become overloaded. This then signals your body to produce less dopamine naturally. Once the dopamine from the nicotine is processed, your body (which is now producing less) has insufficient amounts of dopamine which causes a stress reaction, (irritability, lethargy, anxiety, and muscle constriction). The only thing that can ease these symptoms other than allowing your body time to correct the chemical imbalance is to consume more nicotine. Which then causes you to feel relaxed again. Most people do not realize the nicotine is what stressed them out in the first place and the relaxation they feel is just them balancing their dopamine shortage. Which is why it is so addicting both mentally and physically. If you are too immature and uneducated to understand the drug you are ingesting and that tells me you are indeed to young to use it.

-Yes, Initially you may feel a bit more relaxed that is because of the dopamine increase but this is a false sense of relaxation. In reality it is stimulating you same as methamphetamine or cocaine (other dopamine agonists) might. But as your tolerance builds and a dependency occurs your body will become more stressed from the withdrawal than it was before you ever started using it. I can assure you system stimulants are not actually relaxing. If you want to feel relaxed what you are looking for is a system depressant or something that affects gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors (GABA) Drugs that do this include but are not limited to: Alcohol, Clonazepam, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines etc.

-I am not disregarding the psychological effect sitting back and having a vape has for you. I understand that you can take a load off and relax and have a fire up your rig. I'm just trying to explain that Nicotine itself is not in anyway what makes you relax.

-Thank-you for the gold! I'm Honored!

Edit: Wording

Edit 2: Maybe I should have posted in r/unpopularopinion as this is the most controversial post of they day. How many of you down voting are under 18? Be honest.

Edit 3: This post is turning into a r/facepalm How can so many of you be so uneducated when it comes to how nicotine or other system stimulants affect your brain chemistry? NICOTINE is not relaxing. This is a scientific fact. Period. End of story.
