The rapid rise of the vaping industry over the course of the last decade has been difficult to ignore. The best choice that any adult smoker can make, without question, is to quit altogether. However, for those who do not want to quit, or are unable to vaping is now widely accepted as a less harmful alternative to cigarettes.
This Vaping 101 article covers the fundamentals of vaping. It explains how vaping differs from cigarette smoking and provides an overview of the kinds of vaping devices that are available on the market today.
How vaping differs from smoking
The following provide an overview of the major differences between vaping and smoking cigarettes.
No smoke: Smoking relies on combustion. When a cigarette is lit, it produces smoke, which is inhaled directly into the lungs.
Vaping doesn’t involve combustion. When you puff on a vaping device, the e-liquid inside heats up electronically and converts to a vapour, which can then be inhaled. Typically, this vapour will contain nicotine, though nicotine-free e-liquids are also widely available.
Reduced risk: Since vaping doesn’t involve combustion, vaping devices don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide; two of the most harmful constituents of cigarette smoke.
Though less harmful than smoking cigarettes, vaping isn’t entirely risk-free.
More flavours: Tobacco flavoured vapes can help to simulate the taste of smoking cigarettes for those looking to switch to a better alternative. However, in addition - there are a wide variety of other vape flavours including menthol as well as fruit flavoured options.
Electronic: Vaping devices - also known as e-cigarettes and e-vaporisers - are electronic.
Vaping devices are available from a broad range of brands and come in many forms. Some resemble cigarettes (so-called cigalikes), whilst others look more like pens or USB memory sticks, many of the devices used by more advanced vapers have much bulkier appearances and contain many customisable components.
