To vape or not to vape, that is the question.
This is one of the most polarising questions thrown at vapers all over the world. And this is usually based on the succeeding question: should I vape or should I just smoke cigarettes? We’ll take the safer alternative. We’ll take vaping this time.
Relax! It’s not a cigarette.
These are typical responses coming from vapers who blow huge amounts of smoke. Vaping has indeed taken the world by storm and has proven to be quite a useful tool in helping long-time smokers minimize or completely eradicate smoking from their lives.
Vaping is a fun way to help yourself ease off of cigarettes. Not only does it come in many different shapes and sizes but the juices you can use also have a wide range of tastes that you can choose from. There have yet to be chronic diseases associated with smoking tobacco that can be blamed on vaping.
To produce the vapour, vape juice or e-juice is heated to a very high temperature. Vape juice is applied to the wick which is them pressed tightly against the atomizing coils. When the electricity goes through the coils, it produces the heat needed to turn the substance into vapour.
This is akin to water boiling and evaporating or released as steam. It is relatively harmless as there are fewer chemicals present in e-juice than there is in a stick of cigarette.
Despite being a safer alternative, vaping is still considered a dangerous past-time and is as reviled as cigarettes smoked in public. So what’s the score? Are you still going to reach for that cigarette or are you going to take a chance with harmless vapour?
