If you are a smoker, there must have been several instances when you promised yourself you would quit smoking. It might have a new year resolutions or after a health scare. Or maybe after a fitness epiphany. Whatever the reason might be, the determination is generally short lived. It might be a day when you let your guards down and your weakness takes over. And suddenly you feel like a cigarette will help with your stress and tension. Or a colleague lights up a cigarette and you are hit by the sudden urge to just smoke one. It’s almost a overwhelming feeling only smokers can understand.
Smokers already know that their habit is chipping away at their health every single day. And they are better off without it. No one is ignorant of smoking and we all know what can happen. However, there are rumors about how vaping can help you quit smoking. A vaporizer is an e-cigarette which provides you with the same experience as smoking a cigarette. However, the verdict is still out whether or not it is just another substitute to be dependent on, or helps you quit smoking cigarettes.
Simply put, vaping is an inhaling and exhaling vapor produced by an e-cigarette. The term vaping is used because general e-cigarettes do not contain any nicotine but rather a kind of water vapor. Vaping has developed a rising popularity with the rise of e-cigarettes. A vaping device generally consists of a mouthpiece, a battery, a cavity to contain the e-liquid. While using the device the battery warms up the heat in the component which turns the liquid into vapor. This is then held in the lungs and then exhaled. The liquid used in the vaporizer can be housed in different products as per one’s liking. However, it does not contain nicotine.
While the authorities have not yet approved vaping as a tool for putting an end to your smoking habit, there are several testimonials from people who stand by it. The reactions have been quite intense with hashtags like #vapingsavedmylife doing the rounds with some passionate people on records claiming how vaping helped. There are some researchers that support the use of vaping as a tool to stop smoking. A particular study exhibits a strong connection between vaping and quitting cigarette smoking. However, on the other hand, there are several instances where vaping has just aggravated the addiction or shifted it to a different level, thereby leading to no real positive results.
The truth is pretty self-explanatory. If you are looking to quit smoking, there is no easy way to do it. It is essential to understand that your body is in a very vulnerable position when you are trying to quit an addiction. Any hacks or replacements can end in the body being confusing and create a dependency for the new substitute. If you want to try vaping for fun, if you are not a smoker, you might give it a try. However, it still contains nicotine that you are still inhaling, so using it as a tool to quit smoking may not be the best way to quit.
