Vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking. It’s like smoking minus the adverse effects of the latter (no bad smell and bad breath,less likelihood of getting cancer and other smoking-affiliated illnesses). Vaping is the name given to the use of a vaporizer. The process involves heating a liquid that in turn generates vapor. The user, called a vaper gets his/her nicotine hit through inhaling the vapor.
Anatomy of a Vaporizer:
The vaporizer is made up of various components.
Battery/Mod: This is the power source and is charged through USB.
Atomizer: Stores the e-liquid and houses the coil responsible for heating up the e-liquid and creating vapor that the user inhales and exhales.
E-liquid: Also known as e-juice. The e-juice comprises the following ingredients: Vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine and flavoring.
E-liquid comes in a variety of flavors with different nicotine strengths categorized in milligrams that generally ranges from 3mg-24mg depending on how much nicotine you need. There are even 0mg e-liquids that contain no nicotine for those who just want to vape minus the nicotine hit.
The Benefits of Vaping:
Cancer is caused by tobacco and not nicotine. Vaping does involve nicotine but there is no tobacco. It does not have any adverse effects on the heart and arteries. It emits vapor but second-hand exposure to the vapor does not pose a public health risk in the same way as tobacco. It gives us a nicotine fix just like smoking but without the likelihood of health concerns that lead to diseases like cancer. You get to save more money since vaporizers are cost-effective in the long run (as compared to cigarettes).
So, stop smoking and start vaping, a better alternative!
