Realizing the dangers of smoking tobacco, many people are trying to give up the deadly habit by using some aids like e-cigarettes, also known as vapes. The chances are high that you too can give up the habit of smoking tobacco. You can use some aid like the Juul pod system that replicates the experience of smoking tobacco without the harmful effects of nicotine. The Juul pod system is very much affordable because you can use refills for Juul pods and keep using it until the coil burns out. However, vaping does not do away with nicotine altogether. It only helps in changing the way you consume nicotine by allowing you to inhale it in the form of vapor. The smoke of nicotine that you inhale when you smoke tobacco does more damage to your body than when you inhale it in vapor form.

How do e-cigarettes or vapes work?

E-cigarettes are devices that do not use tobacco but a liquid mixture of some chemicals like polypropylene glycol and/ or vegetable glycerin together with nicotine and flavorings. Vapes are available in your choicest flavors, including fruit and dessert based flavors that give the best possible taste and experience in smoking. E-cigarette devices have heating arrangements for heating the solution to produce vapor for inhalation. Unlike tobacco that burns and releases harmful carbon monoxide besides producing tar, e-cigarettes do not release any toxic chemicals or gases.

How safe are e-cigarettes?

When you take up vaping intending to quit smoking, you are choosing a much lesser evil because e-cigarettes are not 100% safe because it contains nicotine. However, the chances of harming your health reduce by 95% if you take up vaping. Although e-cigarettes contain nicotine, its level is quite low; hence, the chances of health damage are also low. Although people identify nicotine as the culprit for damaging health, thousands of other chemicals in tobacco smoke cause the maximum damage associated with tobacco smoking.

E-cigarettes come in various shapes and designs.

Vape pens look like a pen or tube that has a small tank inside for filling e-liquid and replaceable coils for heating the liquid. The batteries are rechargeable and last longer than Cigalikes.

Cigalikes look like real cigarettes and have small disposable batteries.
