What is the main difference between vaping and smoking?
The main difference between smoking and vaping, is that smoking delivers nicotine to your lungs through burning tobacco and inhaling smoke, whilst vaping uses a battery-operated heater to warm an e-liquid (the vapor) to be inhaled.
Which is better for you?
It is believed that smoking is more harmful than vaping, as vaping only produces a small fraction of the 7000+ chemicals found in tobacco smoke, as well as lower levels of the potentially harmful ones. Unlike cigarettes, vaping products do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, which can have detrimental effects on our health. Cigarette smoke contains many disease-causing chemicals, including many that cause cancer, heart and lung diseases.
Due to this, many believe vaping is better than smoking, however it is also important to note that nicotine in vaping is a highly addictive substance. Despite this, vaping holds more options to users, offering nicotine-free vapes to combat this issue, different shapes, colors and sizes, different flavors, as well as the convenience of using them. Additionally, vaping can be cheaper to smoking, as they can last longer and be refilled. Check out Kickvapes range of different vape types to learn more about different vaping options and products.
Can vaping help you quit smoking?
Yes, vaping can be a useful tool to help you quit smoking. You are twice as likely to quit smoking using a vape compared to other nicotine replacement products, such as patches and gum (NHS). The e-liquid in vapes can contain different nicotine strengths, so you control how much nicotine you need to help with any cravings or withdrawal symptoms, such as feeling irritable and having a low mood when quitting smoking. Some find it useful to do because the hand-to-mouth action is like smoking, and they receive similar sensations to smoking without the harmful chemicals from the smoke.
