Vaping only started becoming popular over the last couple of years, and thus it’s only natural that there are all sorts of vaping myths.
Most e-cigarette users already know the facts about vaping, but we are here to debunk some of the biggest vaping myths.
If you know of others that we have missed, let us know.
Vaping is more expensive than smoking.
It might be more expensive getting started, but it’s much more cost effective in the long run. E-juice is cheaper than a packet of cigarettes and can easily last for a month.
Vaping doesn’t assist in smoking cessation.
The statistics around the world paints a different picture. Vaping satisfy the nicotine craving of smokers without harmful carcinogens, tar and other harmful chemicals.
Vapes or e-cigarettes explode easily.
If you have a quality vape and maintain your e-cigarette properly, this is not a concern. See more details here.
E-juices contain harmful ingredients.
If you buy e-liquids from a credible distributor, this should not be a concern. E-liquids are primarily made up of four ingredients: Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin, Flavourings and Liquid Nicotine.
All e-liquids contain nicotine.
Vapers can choose whether they want to smoke e-liquids that contain nicotine or nicotine-free ones. They can also choose the concentration levels of nicotine.
All e-liquid flavours are fruity.
E-liquids are available in a big variety of flavours such as menthol, tobacco, fruit, coffee and many more. Smokers who are trying to quit often start off with tobacco flavours and migrate to other flavours.
Vaping is a gateway to smoking.
A recent study done regarding vaping being a gateway to smoking for young people, refuted this statement. Results showed that the opposite might be true as more people are switching to healthier lifestyles and swapping to vaping to try quit smoking.
Vaping is as dangerous as smoking.
Numerous studies exist that disproves this. Cigarettes contain upwards of 70 cancer causing chemicals and tar, which are also linked to heart disease. Vaping contains no carcinogens or tar, and vapers can opt for nicotine-free versions.
