Vaping has proven to be one of the most effective methods of quitting smoking and vaping’s popularity has grown rapidly over the past few years with more and more people choosing to make the switch to electronic cigarettes.
One of most appealing aspects of vaping to those wishing to quit smoking is the ability to use a device that is so similar to a cigarette in terms of the way it is used and delivers nicotine to your system. As with a cigarette (also known as an analogue cigarette), an E-cig (also known as a digital cigarette) works through the user inhaling the vapour produced when E-liquid is heated and vaporised. This delivers the nicotine to your system in exactly the same way a cigarette would.
This is where many people begin to ask, “if it gives me nicotine the same way a cigarette does, what’s the difference?”
and truth be told the difference is vast. Whilst the means of nicotine delivery is essentially the same, when smoking an analogue cigarette you’re inhaling far more than nicotine. A standard analogue cigarette contains thousands of extremely harmful and poisonous chemicals such as formaldehyde, ammonia and hydrogen cyanide to name but a few. E-liquid on the other hand has four main ingredients.
They are, Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), Nicotine and flavour concentrates.

So whilst you absorb nicotine from an E-cig in the same way as you would through an analogue cigarette you don’t subject your body to the huge list of chemicals found in an analogue cigarette and the huge list of possible side effects and illnesses they can cause. Now couple that information with the statement released by the British NHS that states that vaping is in fact 95% healthier than smoking and this goes a long way to proving the benefits vaping offers.
