The Teenager Who Needed a Double Lung Transplant Because He Vaped Has Something to Say
Daniel Ament went to sleep one day and woke up months later with a new set of lungs. Ament, 17 and a high school junior in Grosse Pointe, Mich., (anonymously) made headlines this past fall after becoming the first person to receive a double lung transplant due to what doctors attribute to vaping-related damage. But Ament—who spent more than a month critically ill and hospitalized before his surgery—doesn’t remember any of it. “I was trying to think of the last thing I could remember, and it was summer,” says Ament, talking on the record for the first time.

Juul Labs, the e-cigarette company so popular its name became a verb, wouldn’t be where it is without social media. In the company’s early years, a steady stream of posts from users and influencers helped turn Juul from a smoking alternative to a cultural phenomenon. So many Juul users—many of them teenagers—voluntarily posted about vaping that it hardly made a difference when the company in 2018 silenced its own accounts to help stem its popularity among underage users.
