你可能知道尼古丁是地球上最能令人上癮的藥物之一,但其實這只是冰山一角。對青少年發育中的大腦,尼古丁會造成更多危害。 「至少這不是海洛因!」吸電子煙的青少年可能會翻白眼來反駁你。好,先說這一點: 有證據指出尼古丁可能會帶來青少年濫用藥物的風險,並導致他們在日後成年時上癮。根據研究顯示,青少年可對低劑量的尼古丁上癮,所以即使有偶然吸電子煙的習慣,也會造成終身的影響。尼古丁並可加強青少年本身追求新奇、衝動和冒險的傾向,更不用說會導致令人不快的尷尬行為。 遺害不僅如此。無論他們自認有多聰明,青少年的大腦畢竟尚未完全發育成形,因此特別容易受到尼古丁的侵害。這正能導致各種有關情緒和行為的問題,如重度抑鬱症、廣場恐怖症、恐慌症和反社會人格障礙。而當你明白到使用電子煙的青少年,一年後多三倍機會改吸香煙,你就會明白為什麼電子煙不應該是青少年亂碰的東西。此外,電子煙含有毒的化學物質,可引發哮喘、呼吸道感染和其他的健康問題。 說到尼古丁,成年人其實也不太清楚(任何人說它「不過像咖啡因」實在是令人痛心的嚴重誤導)。但對於青少年來說,這後果更極其嚴峻 — 相當糟糕的是,電子煙行業並未真的嘗試將其令人上癮的產品遠離青少年。忍無可忍?對,我們實在無法忍受下去!請瀏覽StillBlowingSmoke.org/Chinese瞭解詳情。
