If you’re not a smoker, we generally don’t recommend that you start vaping.
Vaping is used primarily as a smoking cessation method for entrenched smokers. People who have tried other methods of quitting but failed to give up smoking, including patches, lozenges, sprays, medication, hypnotherapy and cold turkey, often find that vaping is the way to go.
Vaping gives many long-term smokers exactly what they need to quit – the hand-to-mouth action of smoking, the inhale of vapour, and the visual exhale of a cloud. This covers the mental hurdle of quitting; adding nicotine into your e-liquid covers the physical cravings, too, however, nicotine can be avoided by many who are simply addicted to the action.
For people looking to quit smoking, vaping is a great option and should be considered.
While we’re not legally allowed to say it’s “safer than smoking”, here’s a report from Public Health England, a government association, which states that vaping is at least 95 per cent safer than smoking. Read the report and make up your own mind. There’s plenty of other independent research out there, too.
An e-cig is an electronic device that heats a liquid into an aerosol which the user then inhales and exhales. These devices consist of a battery, an atomizer and a tank.
