When you compare smoking a cigarette to vaping with an e-cigarette, the e-cigarette is the healthier choice. Yet, that does not mean that e-smoking itself is healthy. If you are deciding to use e-cigarettes instead of tobacco ones, it is important to know the benefits as well as the drawbacks of vaping. Luckily for you, this list compiled some important information that you should know so you can make an informed decision.


1. Vaporizing the nicotine is safer than burning tobacco

This is an obvious one, we all know that burning tobacco produces tar in our lungs and has us breathing in toxic, cancer-causing chemicals. But it is an important reason for many people to know. When you vape, an electrical wire inside the e-cigarette heats up the liquid that contains flavorings and nicotine, and it turns into a vapor which you then inhale. The name of this liquid is the e-liquid, and they come in many flavors and varying amounts of nicotine in them including versions without the nicotine.

2. Nicotine management

As stated above, the e-liquids come with different amounts of nicotine in them, this means that you can manage how much nicotine you actually consume. This fact is important for people to know because there are many e-cigarettes that do not have this option. If you are trying to get rid of nicotine addiction it is important to review the details of the e-smoking products you buy.

3. Prices

The amount of products out there for e-smoking is quite a lot, this also means that the prices for these items vary from super cheap to very expensive. If you want to quit smoking cigarettes and get into vaping, it’s good to know that the items you will need to buy are all accessible to you and your budget. So whatever your budget is, there will be decent vaping equipment available.


1. The side effects

Like anything you breathe into your lungs (other than clean air of course) side effects to your lungs will be inevitable. Inhaling e-liquid might be less dangerous than smoking a cigarette, but that doesn’t mean there are no dangers to it. Difficulties breathing, shortness of breath, and coughing a lot are some of those effects that stress the lungs. Other effects include nausea and headaches.

2. Chemicals you inhale

Other than the nicotine the e-liquid in the e-cigarettes contains many questionable ingredients as well as the particles that enter the lungs. There is not much information out there on the exact ingredients in the liquids that people vape. What we do know is that nicotine is not the only harmful thing in these liquids. The chemical ‘diacetyl’ is found in some of the flavorings of these liquids which is very harmful and causes the breathing problems people face when vaping or in some cases respiratory diseases. 

3. Prices (Again)

As accessible as it is to start e-smoking, the costs do at some point start piling up. Once your e-liquid finishes you need to buy another one in order to continue the use. Naturally, the prices will be different depending on what brand you choose, the amount of e-liquids you get, as well as the amount of mg, is in each bottle you get.
