COVID 19: Stop use of vaping pen ASAP. Get seen now if struggling to breath. Rest, hydration, acetaminophen, decongestant, cough med & nasal saline irrigation may help mild symptoms. Make sure to quarantine. Get emergency care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face or new-onset of confusion.

Quit drug abuse: Quit using substances of abuse. If you develop breathing difficulty for any reason, go to the nearest hospital in case it is due to Covid-19. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
