Vaping refers to the act of using an electronic device that heats a liquid (e-liquid) producing aerosol (vapour) which the user inhales.
Vaping is the best alternative for smokers wanting to quit because it also delivers nicotine but in a less harmful way. When you switch to vaping, you get to stay social while spending less.
Even though it’s safer than smoking cigarettes, it is not completely harmless so you should not vape if you don’t smoke.
A vape kit is an electronic device that is used to vaporize e-liquid for the user to inhale. A vape kit consists of 3 parts; a coil, a tank and a mod.
The vaping liquid (also called e-liquid) is the liquid used in vape devices that creates the actual vapor. It is a mixture of food grade flavouring, a choice of nicotine levels (or no nicotine), and propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG).
There will be an initial cost to set-up your device but, the on-going costs for coils and e-liquid, in the long run, will be cheaper compared to smoking.
The difference between smoking and vaping is how nicotine is delivered into the body. Smoking delivers nicotine by burning tobacco which creates tar and other toxins making it harmful to your health. Vaping, heats up e-liquids which contains only a handful of ingredients including nicotine therefore it is considered less harmful.
Many people miss the nicotine when they quit smoking and can experience a range of nicotine withdrawal symptoms which may make quitting difficult. Vaping however, can provide you with the nicotine you need without other chemicals generally found in cigarettes.
