What is Vaping?

Vaping is when you inhale water vapour which is produced through e-cigarette or a personal vaporizer or a similar device. In other words, vaping is more like an alternative to smoking where you do get affected by the adverse effects of smoking. E-Cigarettes were introduced to the public so that it will help them to stop smoking and not encourage non-smokers to start smoking. With vaping, you will not have any bad breath or be affected by cancer or other heart diseases which would otherwise be caused due to smoking tobacco.


The device that turns the vaping material or the e-liquid into vapour is called a vaporizer. The device is usually made up of battery, an atomizer, cartridges, cartomizer and these things convert the vaping material into a vapour.

Materials that are vaped:

Most of the vaporizers use e-liquids. Some of the other common materials that are used are wax concentrates and dry herbs. Some of the e-vaporizers use a tank or a cartridge whereas the dry herb has a heating chamber. There are even multipurpose vaporizers which will allow you to switch between cartridges.


E-liquid is the common material that is used in vaping devices, and it is made out of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine; this liquid might not even contain nicotine. There are lots of varieties of e-liquid that are available in the market, and some of them even have flavours.

What is vaping like?

Vaping provides different experiences to various people. Depending on the amount of nicotine you are able to bear you will be able to differentiate the strength of vaping. Some are ultra-thin, and some are very strong while others do not have any nicotine in it. When you inhale strong nicotine, you will have a stronger sensation. Nicotine is quite addictive, and thus you need to know when to limit your consumption.

One thing you need to remember is that e-cigars are invented to help people who smoke to quit their smoking habit, and this should not turn out to be in a reverse manner. At the same time, one cannot say that vaping is completely safe as nothing can be considered as completely safe. However, based on various researchers and studies vaping is considered to be safer when compared to smoking tobacco as no toxic substance get released in vaping.

Giving up smoking is so hard, and thus many people use e-cigarettes to battle the withdrawal symptoms. You can slowly reduce the dosage of nicotine to a point where you no longer are addicted to the drug.
