Misconceptions About Vaping

Vaping is one of the latest trends among young people, and as such it is subject to a good deal of scrutiny and some common misconceptions. Proponents of vaping say that it is much safer than smoking traditional cigarettes, but lawmakers are inclined to disagree when it comes to making policy surrounding the practice. Here are some of the things that many people get wrong about vaping, and the truth about the ways in which the practice is safe and the ways it might be risky.

There’s More Than One Kind of E-Cigarette

One thing that confuses newbies about e-cigarettes is that the term is used to refer to several different types of devices which all look quite different from one another. Basic e-cigarettes look a lot like metallic versions of traditional cigarettes. More advanced versions of e-cigarettes are larger and made up of several different parts. Larger and more advanced e-cigarettes have more available flavors and can be customized with different parts. The trade off is that they are more expensive and harder to maintain than basic e-cigs.

Vaping Helps Smokers Quit

Vaping is often sold as an alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, but some skeptics have wondered whether they are really as effective as users are led to believe. There is a considerable body of evidence to suggest that e-cigarettes help people who are quitting smoking manage their cravings and symptoms of withdrawal. One survey found that less than 10 percent of people who traded traditional cigarettes for e-cigs went back to smoking regular cigarettes after one year.

E-Liquids Are Simple Recipes

E-liquids, the flavored juices that are used to fill e-cigarettes, are not the mysterious witch’s brew they are sometimes made out to be. They are usually made up of a few simple, natural ingredients that include a liquid base, a flavor and a small amount of nicotine. Most e-liquids use glycol alcohol as a base since it causes the liquid to vaporize more smoothly. Flavors may be either natural or artificial. There are also liquids available that use vegetable oil rather than glycol alcohol as a base, as well as unflavored liquids and liquids that contain no nicotine.

There Is Not Much Nicotine in E-Liquids

Many e-liquids contain a trace amount of nicotine, but the nicotine content in vape juices is highly variable and there are many liquids that don’t contain any nicotine at all. While it doesn’t hold true for all vapers, many people who use e-cigarettes to quit smoking tend to start with juices that have a higher level of nicotine and then step down to liquids with lower nicotine content as a way to ease themselves off the drug. This does not even take into account the many people who uses e-liquids with no nicotine at all simply because they like the taste or the ritual.

Vapor vs Cigarette Smoke

There hasn’t been a lot of scientific research dedicated to the effects of vaping yet, but several studies indicate that inhaling vaporized nicotine is far safer than inhaling traditional cigarette smoke. E-liquids tend to contain fewer chemical additives than cigarettes, as well as fewer carcinogens since the smoker is not breathing in any caustic smoke.

Knowing the facts about e-cigarettes is one way to defend your hobby from skeptics, and to decide whether you want to take the plunge and start vaping.
