I know my younger step-son vapes, because I found an empty container in his bathroom trash a while back. I don’t know much about it, though. Lately, I have noticed a smell—very sweet, I would describe it as a strawberry smell. That wasn’t the same flavor of the container I found, so I didn’t think about the correlation at first. I have noticed this smell when I go past his closed bedroom door on occasion, when he is in there. The other day, I told hubby that I smelled it, and he did, too, outside the door. He went in, and his son said it was air freshener and showed him the spray can. It was Glade apples and cinnamon. Hubby said it was what he smelled. I said that it wasn’t, because the Glade was our bathroom spray, and the smell was not the same. Truthfully, hubby just doesn’t want to deal with it. He told him not to vape or any other kind of smoking in the house, and his son said he didnt, and that was that. Well, last night I went downstairs in the middle of the night and smelled the odor strongly. Son had gotten home late from work but was in bed by that time. I didn’t mention it to hubby today yet, as he had to leave really early today and is always in ‘work mode’ in the mornings, so it’s never a good time to speak about household problems. When I went into the downstairs powder room, I smelled the lingering scent, though. It’s still there, hours later. It’s definitely not the Glade, as the spray is cheap, and dissipates quickly. So, does this sound like vaping, and if so, is it harmful? I have read that the long-term effects are still unknown. I originally thought it was harmless, so I am not sure. I have to decide whether to talk to hubby about this. His son is an ongoing problem in the household, and I pick my battles wisely where he is concerned. Hubby is not happy with him about some things from when we were away and son was here alone, just recently, and lots of other stuff. I don’t want to make a big deal of this, in a way, because it will become a huge problem. I need some input before I decide.
