Tell Us Why You Decided To Stop Using Juul And What That Was Like

If you ever used the Juul and became concerned that you might be hooked, we want to know what that was like.

Vaping has become more popular than ever, especially with devices like the Juul, which delivers a potent dose of nicotine.

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can affect the brain. In the US, vaping among teens is at an all-time high, but research has shown that some high schoolers don't know what they're vaping — even when it's nicotine.

The Juul is one type of vaporizer that heats a liquid (which comes in cartridges called "pods") into a vapor, which is then inhaled. It provides a hit of nicotine with each puff, masked by flavors such as mango, mint, and crème brûlée. It's small and discreet, making it easy to use in places where traditional vaping or smoking would be forbidden like schools, restaurants, and households.

Did you ever use the Juul but eventually decide that you needed to quit? We want to hear your story.

Maybe you didn't realize you were vaping nicotine and wanted to stop before it became an addiction.

Perhaps it became harder to use your Juul in indoor spaces or around your friends, and decided it wasn't worth the trouble.

Maybe it became too expensive of a habit.

The device starts at $34.99, so it's not exactly cheap to replace if you lose or break it. Each four-pack of Juul pods cost $15.99, which are supposed to last roughly as long as a pack of cigarettes. Depending on how fast you go through pods, these costs can add up.

Whatever your reasons, we want to hear about your experience. So tell us: Why did you decide you wanted to stop Juuling, and was it hard to quit? If you did quit, what helped you make it happen? Share your story in the "Add Yours" submission box below.
