The Truth About Vaping

Share:

More kids and young people have picked up vaping. They believe it’s a safer alternative to smoking, thanks to promoters claiming that it will help you “kick the habit.”

Some of their claims are correct. Vapor doesn’t include all the nasty contaminants you’d otherwise find in tobacco smoke. But the downsides far outweigh the “pros” of vaping.

The chemicals

 

Promoters claim that vaping will help you quit cigarettes. In reality, vaping is simply another way to deliver nicotine to your body.

Nicotine is responsible for harming brain development for young people and also harming the development of fetuses in pregnant women. In some cases, the nicotine found in vaping is more than traditional cigarettes.

And nicotine isn’t the only chemical in them, you can also find:

  • Diacetyl
  • Cancer-causing chemicals
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Nickel
  • Tin
  • Lead

Since you exhale vapor, you’re also exposing these dangerous chemicals to the people near you as well!

There are other ways to quit

The American Heart Association has published several articles about the proven ways to quit smoking for good—vaping isn’t one of them. It doesn’t lead you on the path to a healthier lifestyle, and it doesn’t improve your mood.

If E-cigarettes continue to grow in popularity, “smoking” may become normalized again. The world has made significant progress in exposing the truths behind the dangers of cigarettes. Why should we start moving backward?

Don’t fall for the marketing gimmicks behind vaping. It won’t help you quit smoking, but it can push other people to get started.
