Helping a Teen or Young Adult Quit Vaping

EX Resources For You

Helping a child quit vaping can be stressful and confusing. You're in good hands here. We've got a suite of resources for parents and other trusted adults just like you:

  • 24/7 support in the EX Community from other parents and former vapers/smokers who can help you understand what it feels like to quit
  • Information about addiction and how medication can make quitting more comfortable
  • Text messages to guide conversations with your child, give you strategies to try together and help you manage stress. Text QUIT to 202-899-7550 to sign up to receive text messages designed specifically for parents of vapers.
  • Interactive tools and videos to learn quitting techniques to pass along to your child

There's a lot to learn about vaping. We also have plenty of strategies for talking with teens and young adults about vaping and quitting. If you smoke, vape, dip or chew, we encourage you to give quitting a try, too! Start your EX Plan today.

When you're ready, set your quit date. This will give you the time you need to get ready—and give you something to work toward.

  • Today
  • Quit Date

You've selected a quit date that's in the past

If you have already quit, you can use your My EX Plan page to help stay on track.

If you’ve selected ~DATE1~ by mistake, adjust it to a date in the future. We recommend somewhere between 2 and 4 weeks from today. This will give you time to prepare for your upcoming quit.

You've selected a quit date that's within the next two weeks…

Are you sure you're ready? Don’t forget that you’ll need time to re-learn life without cigarettes and prepare before the big day. To make sure you can get everything done, we recommend choosing this date 2-4 weeks from now, ~DATE1~.

If you still want to go with a Quit Date of ~DATE2~, click the button below. Otherwise, close this box and choose another date.

You've selected a quit date that's more than four weeks from now.

Are you sure you want to wait that long? If you think it’s going to take you that long to re-learn life without cigarettes and prepare for the big day, then keep it. But in general we’ve found that having a quit date that’s more than four weeks away can give you too much time to change your mind about quitting. So we recommend choosing a date 2-4 weeks from now, ~DATE1~.

If you still want to go with a Quit Date of ~DATE2~, click the button below. Otherwise, close this box and choose another date.

You're all ready to quit

Now that you’ve set your quit date, you’ll move to the My EX Plan page. The My EX Plan page will be your home base as you re-learn life without cigarettes and quit smoking.

Let’s keep the lectures to a minimum

As a parent, there is plenty to worry about, as we try to raise our children.  We know that as children grow they become more independent from us and can make decisions that can alter their lives.

Help for my son who vapes

I am here as a parent of a child (16 years old, soon to be 17) who vapes.  I caught him this summer.  He promised he would stop.  I have taken 2 more vapes from him since then. I need help to be able to help him.
