How can I find a group for parents of teens who vape and are trying to quit?
We now have a group!
Parents of Vaping Teens and Tweens
MarkEX Community Manager
You can do a search with the magnifying glass in the top right on "teens and vaping: and find relevant content. Here is some very recent information I found with some eye opening research on the subject: Teens and Vaping - A TED Talk . The scientific evidence of the dangers are just now being researched and published. Here is another blog from our site parent that might also be helpful: Helping your children who vape
I know that our administrator, Mark , had asked our group for advice we would give to parents of teens who were vaping, but don't know if there is a group for just that as yet.
I think education on its dangers would be a good place to start. I think a lot of teens believe it is "safe." Helping them break free of its addictive nature would be your next step. When you are ready for that, let us know and we can give you further educational materials to help them with that. You might also do a search within your state or local health departments to see if they provide group counseling for teen addiction. Nicotine is as powerful a drug as most others.
Be sure to ask if we can help!

Jcz816 There is not a group currently but I am in the process of putting one together. I'll let you know when it is up. It will definitely be a good place for parents to air their concerns and also share their experiences and find out what to look for, what works/doesn't work etc.
