What is vaping?
Vaping means the use of a vaping device
(aka e-cigarette/personal vaporizer/mod/APV)!
There are numerous such devices available,
from the cigalikes to the 3rd generation APVs,
but vaping is the term that unites them all.
How do vaping devices work?
All vaping products operate using the same
principles. A battery powers a coil which heats a
liquid solution known as e-liquid. This produces a
vapor which is then inhaled. However, these
fundamentals can be applied in a large number
of ways, and many products have been developed
to meet the demands vapers have from their vape.
Is it safe?
Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 toxic
chemicals. No actual smoke is involved with
e-cigarettes only vapor. Smoke is the real health
hazard. E-cigarettes deliver nicotine by inhaling a
vaporized nicotine solution
(composed of propolyne glyclol,
vegetable glycerin and flavoring) without tar,
carbon monoxide, flame retardants, pesticides, etc.
A report by the Royal College of Physicians states
that nicotine by itself has not been proven to cause
any long term ill health effects.
What e-liquids should I get?
Again, there is no one-size fits all answer here,
so the best thing you can do is to try out a few
e-liquids and see which one suits you. Interestingly,
don’t assume that you need an authentic
tobacco flavor. There are some good ones out there,
but we find that the vast majority of vapers end up
choosing a flavor other than tobacco, and this
happens very quickly if they try a few different
ones to begin with. In terms of PG/VG, you’ll have to
try for yourself and decide what you like.
Can I save money over smoking?
Yes, absolutely. Although how much you will s
ave depends on several factors:
How much cigarettes or tobacco costs where
you live. The amount you spend on devices
this becomes a hobby for many!) That said, with a good
setup you should be able to
save considerable amounts of money, and the more
focused on saving money by vaping you are,
the more you will save.
