Mothers ask for a Unique Gift from Children: ‘A Promise to Never Indulge in New-Age Gateway Devices’


Mothers Against Vaping, a united front of concerned mothers combatting the escalating vaping crisis among our youth, on the occasion of Mother’s Day has launched a unique campaign. The campaign seeks to transform the customary act of giving gifts on Mother’s Day into a powerful pledge from children to their mothers – a promise to never touch new-age gateway devices like vapes and e-cigarettes.

By taking this pledge, children are not only expressing their appreciation for their mothers but also safeguarding themselves against the dangers of addiction and associated health risks posed by these new-age devices.

In the spirit of Mother’s Day, Mothers Against Vaping believes that the greatest gift a child can give to their mother is a commitment to prioritize their health and well-being by rejecting such harmful new-age addictive devices. These devices come in various forms including vapes, e-cigarettes and ‘heat-not-burn’ pens and are loaded with harmful substances like nicotine, diacetyl which are linked to serious lung disease. These devices also include cancer-causing chemicals and heavy metals like nickel, tin and lead.

Talking about the relevance of such a campaign, Dr. Bhavna Barmi, Clinical Psychologist, Founder, Happiness Studio said, “These new-age devices come in attractive appearances and child-friendly flavours but are a serious threat as children once addicted to these gateway devices can be lured into experimenting with more harmful substances. We need more such innovative campaigns to spread awareness among children as well as parents to highlight the dangers of vaping.”

“It is a mother’s right to safeguard the health of her children above all else and Mother’s Day is a beautiful occasion to highlight this aspect of a mother-child bond. By pledging to abstain from vaping, children are not only expressing their love for their mothers but also making a conscious and wise choice to prioritize their own health and well-being. Such choices set them on a path of happiness and a contended life, free from any addictive behaviours,” Dr. Barmi added.

The week-long “Mother’s Day Pledge Campaign,” is already underway and will lead up to Mother’s Day on May 12, 2024. During the campaign, Mothers Against Vaping is encouraging all mothers to join the campaign and initiate conversations with their children about the dangers of vaping. By fostering open communication and setting positive examples, mothers can play a pivotal role in steering their children away from these harmful habits and towards healthier lifestyles.

As part of the campaign initiative, mom influencers will be mobilizing their social media followers, particularly on platforms like Instagram, to spread the message of #MothersAgainstVaping. The goal is to create a long Instagram thread under the hashtag #MothersAgainstVaping, featuring more and more mothers to join the campaign against vaping and asking their children to stay healthy and stay away from these new-age devices forever.
