Is vaping for you? Why smokers are turning to vaping in such huge numbers

Yes, it’s true; we’ve entered a new age. We’ve realised and truly want to do something to turn away from the health risks of that dirty, old-fashioned, potentially carcinogenic activity that’s smoking… and have found a brilliant way to avoid those risks via throwing ourselves into vaping and using by using an electronic vaporiser (or e-cig) device…

The anti-smoking solution?

The electronic vaporiser aka vape kits, are manufactured not just to ensure the user inhales far fewer chemical compounds than when taking a drag on a cigarette (and, of course, that includes far in a way fewer seriously hazardous chemicals), but also ensures those around the vaper can inhale nothing toxic at all; there’s no second-hand smoke or its equivalent.

Moreover, unlike a cigarette, the odour given off by a vaporiser tends to sweet, fruity or not very noticeable at all – it’s all depended on the e-liquid that the vaper is actually vaping.

What’s in e-liquid?

And what about what an e-cig device user vapes exactly? Often people ponder on what makes up the juice that goes into an e-cig device. Well, e-liquid (or vape juice), it’s basically a man-made juice that fills the tank – or clearomiser – of a device, it is heated via a coil inside the tank or pod using the power from a battery. This turn the e-liquid in to vapour to be inhaled and most e-juices are made up from propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), in addition to flavouring (the latter being exactly the sort that’s commonly found in food). Oh and, of course, the (on its own) addictive but relatively harmless nicotine – to deliver the ‘hit’ that’ll help pull would-be-ex-smokers away from the ciggies.

For its part, PG’s an organic compound that helps with producing better flavour and throat hit, while the other e-liquid base compound, VG, is made up of vegetable oils which is thicker in consistency and creates the clouds (vapour). As VG produces less of a throat hit, it can aid an e-juice to deliver a particularly smoother throat hit, which makes it ideal for sub-ohm vaping (deep-inhale and potent vaping). Additionally, the harshness of a vape may be a little reduced by the distilled water in the juice.

What makes up an e-cig device?

Something else a smoker looking to quit tobacco for vaping might be curious about is what the constituent parts of an e-cig device are. Should they better understand and familiarise themselves with them, the easier they’ll find it to master such a device; the more likely they’ll find themselves at ease with vaping as an activity

Every vape pen, mod (advanced and specialised e-cig device) is effectively built around a tank, a coil, a cotton wick connected to the heated-up coil (which, in turn, comes into contact with the e-liquid and heats it up, turning it to vapour) and a spout-like ‘drip tip’, through which the vaper inhales what’s inside.

Is vaping for you?

Vaping, it’s fair to say, comes with its inherent pros and cons – like anything then. An e-cig device and e-liquid can either help you quit or they can make you consume more nicotine in the justification that it won’t cause cancer. Many people become more addicted to nicotine, yes – and yet many more besides don’t; being committed to trying to give up tobacco and, thus, switching over to vaping because they’ve heard it’s an excellent anti-smoking activity.

And, then, after a while, they manage to lower the nicotine levels they vape, as they start to get hooked instead on the terrific flavours and vaping scene (e.g. sub-ohming and cloud-chasing) – preferring to consume instead the likes of 100 VG e liquid UK than old-fashioned nicotine. In the end then, it’s up to the individual to control how little they choose to smoke, how frequently they vape – and exactly they do it.
