Time for a non-smoking generation

The author discusses the need for decisive action in Ireland to address the issues of e-cigarettes and smoking. Vaping was initially promoted as an alternative to smoking but has become a concern due to its appeal to children and young adults and potential health risks. The addictive nature of nicotine in e-cigarettes and their role as a gateway to traditional cigarettes for young people are also highlighted. The author urges Ireland to take a strong stance against smoking and vaping, similar to the country’s past actions in implementing smoke-free workplaces and the plastic bag levy.
