My mother knows I vape, and buys it for me. She even watches me vape most times. Recently though she’s been getting worried I’ll be put in jail, fined, or worse. So we are gonna try and get me to quit soon. But will I get in big trouble if I go to a doctor to help me quit?
Your doctor keeps everything confidential by law. Your health information is confidential. So - ask your doctor. Absolutely. Vaping was originally sold sometimes as a way to quit smoking. It is actually addictive - and Not good for your lungs. So - quit as soon as you can. Your doctor is a very safe person to share this information with. They are there to help . Doctors work with many people who started doing something unhealthy and now need to stop. You are wise. If this answer is helpful, please note"best answer " or "helpful" Good luck !!
This is not a legal opinion given the question that you posed. It is guidance based on common sense recommendations that you may choose to consider and some thoughts to help clarify the matters that you ask about. I am licensed only in the state of Texas. There are many other facts that exist or may arise that you did not express in your question in this forum that are/could be critical to providing an accurate response. Thus, the response I give is very general. I strongly suggest getting a private consultation with an attorney. That is likely to be in your best interest if you have a legal problem , question, concern, or need. Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you. Best of luck !
