I don’t want to depend on my vape anymore. I’m 15 and want to stop before health issues come my way

    Wow - 15 eh? You are smart to be wanting to quit now, while you can still spare health issues down the road.
    Speak to one of the quit coaches to go over your quit plan. You might pick up some valuable tips. Use ALL resources you can. Addiction to nicotine is a tough nut to crack but doing it now will be much better than doing it 30 years from now!  Stay close to this site and post often. It will help keep you on track. Helping others by telling your own story will actually help you as well :) Good to see you have set a realistic quit date too. 4 days is good. Start slowing down on the vape between now and then.
    Getting off nicotine is one thing and doesn't take long at all but breaking all the associations you make between your daily activities and  vaping will take the longest to unravel but just take things a day at a time and keep moving forward each day. You will find freedom just down the road :)

    Dequavis,  you are so young and have your whole life ahead of you.  So many of you young people are getting hooked on e-cigarettes and vapes and only because these companies who sell them don't care, they are only interested in pocketing the money they make off of the most vulnerable.  You can change all that by showing them that you are up to their tricks and quitting now while the getting's good.  What better way to make sure your future is secure and your health is 100%.  Speak to your doctor or pharmacist about quitting and call one of the quit coaches at 1-877-455-2233.  They are very understanding and will be able to help you.  If at any time you need answers to your questions or just need help and encouragement post us,  we'll be glad to do what we can.  You have the chance to do it now, quitting smoking and vaping will be difficult but if you wait till you're older even harder.  Read some of the older posts to get an idea of what you're up against and what you can do to stay quit.  Wishing you all the best, Lucille.

    Wow... I was about your age when I started.  I have been fighting this addiction for 35 years.  Skip this struggle little sister.  Stop now. I promise you will not be 50 wishing you kept smoking (vape or whatever)!!!  You won’t be looking back at all the time wasted beating yourself up and feeling ashamed and scared of serious illness. Skip this hell!! 🤗 
    And get help from a counselor if you need it.  You deserve a beautiful healthy life!!!!  Go for it!!!
