Vaping, pronounced as "vay-ping" has become an alternative to smoking cigarettes. Over the years the consumption of vapors has become popular even among young people who are trying their first vape kit rather than buying a pack of smokes. Vaping started out as a way to stop smoking. The juices or liquid loaded into the devices contain varying amounts of nicotine to help smokers kick the habit. Today, vaping has become mainstream. Many people who do not smoke try out vaping because they are said to be safer compared to smoking.

Difference between vaping and smoking

According to experts, the fundamental difference between vaping and smoking lies in the chemicals. Normal cigarettes have 599 additives. When they are smoked, the additives produce 4,000 chemical compounds. Some of these compounds are known carciongens such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrogen cyanide and ammonia. Experts believe that there are a total of 43 carcinogens in mainsteam smoking and secondhand smoke.

Vape juices on the other hand usually have 4 basic ingredients propylene glycol, nicotine, flavoring and water. These are all water soluble and are used to deliver the nicotine and flavors to the vaper. The device creates the vapor simulating the sensation of smoking tobacco. While nicotine is addictive, the amount consumed can be adjusted and there are nicotine-less juices sold in the market.

Quitting with vape

A study of 6,000 smokers conducted by University College London and funded by Cancer Research UK claims that people who are attempting to quit without professional help are 60% more likely to succeed with the help of vaping. UCL's Department of Epidemiology & Public Health Professor Robert West senior author of the study said that vaping could improve public health because their appeal and widespread popularity. Vaping also has huge health gains associated with the cessation of smoking.

Vaping is a good tool to help you quit smoking. Those who are serious about quitting can slowly lessen the nicotine levels in their juices until the time comes when there is no nicotine at all. The bad news about quitting this way is that it entails major discipline and commitment on the part of the individual. While studies such as that cited above are promising, many health workers still want legislations in place to control vaping.

According to the Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) 1/3 of the 2.1 million adults who use vape are former smokers. With the arrival of Nicotine Replacement Technology (NRT) including vaporizers, a lot has changed among smokers and the tobacco industry. According to their studies, many smokers are turning to vaping in order to stop smoking entirely.

Conclusion

Government in the USA and UK are still on the fence whether vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking. Dr Ram Moorthy, Deputy Chair of the BMA’s Board of Science says that further research is needed to learn about the long-term effects of vaping.

Many former smokers believe that going cold turkey is the only way to stop smoking but vaping is a good alternative to those who lack commitment. While 60% may not be a big percentage to some people, it can be good odds to those who are desperate for a way to stop smoking completely.
