An electronic cigarette, also known as a vape, is a device designed to replicate the experience of tobacco smoking. It comprises an atomizer, a power source (typically a battery), and a container like a cartridge or tank that holds liquid. Instead of producing smoke, the user inhales vapor, a process commonly referred to as “vaping.” The atomizer functions as a heating element, turning the e-liquid into an aerosol of tiny droplets, vapor, and air after quick cooling.

E-cigarettes can be activated by taking a puff or pressing a button, with some models resembling traditional cigarettes. Many vapes are reusable or disposable. The vapor generated mainly contains propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin often combined with nicotine and flavoring.

  • Quitting entirely is probably the slightly healthier option for most people. This is because nicotine itself may slightly increase your risk of heart attacks and strokes, though not nearly as much as smoking does. But switching to a highly-reduced-risk nicotine product is almost as good as quitting entirely. Because the longer you smoke the worse it is for you, switching now may be better than quitting later. – Founded on article
  • Vapes come with various strengths of nicotine and some vapes contain no nicotine—only flavor. Even though e-cigarettes are not regulated, sold or marketed as a stop smoking cessation device. Vape e-liquid comes in a variety of nicotine strengths, ranging from no nicotine to 5% mg (high). This allows e-cigarette users to gradually cut back on nicotine — if they choose—while still experiencing the physical sensation of smoking. It also helps minimize the side effects of nicotine withdrawal, such as fatigue, irritability, increased hunger and depression.
  • Depending on your total usage, vaping can be more cost-effective than regular cigarettes. Once a “starter kit” (containing coils, e-liquid, batteries and charger) is purchased the only continued maintenance is the purchase of coils and e-liquid.
