VAPING the NEW Smoking Habit

Since being back in my hometown Blackpool I have noticed VAPING shops that seem to be everywhere in shopping centres. I got interested in their concept by observing people with what seemed loke huge clouds of smoke ( vapor?) coming out of their mouths and noses.Apparently it is the “new” healthy way of of smoking! There are around 2.6 million smokers in Australia and up to two-thirds of them will die as a result of smoking. In some States e cigs (electronic cigarettes) are banned and yet some consider them to be the “healthy” way of smoking.The pub I go in (UK) allows customers to use these machines but it is not the norm,most pubs now have outside smoking areas ( I am an ex smoker and my olfactory senses are fairly good and sadly I can smell a smoker easily   quote …Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the water vapor produced by an electric device called vaporizer (or  E-Cigarette). The new way of smoking was invented ( for use of a better word) by Chinese man Hon Lik,who devised this new addiction in memory of his Father who died of a smoking related cancer disease. I plageurized this paragraph from a Give Up  Smoking page and after reading I have to wonder why people still smoke? 

A vape or vaporizer consists of a mouthpiece, battery, cartridge, atomizer or cartomizer, and circuitry with a sensor. A cartomizer is a modern replacement for atomizer that combines an atomizer and the cartridge into one unit. The cartridge contains the e-liquid or e-juice, while atomizer has a heating element, usually a thin metallic coil that is heated by the power generated by the battery. When a user takes a drag on the mouthpiece, the battery heats up the coil, a cotton wick absorbs e-liquid from the cartridge and when it gets in contact with the coil, which is hotter than the boiling point of the e-liquid, it naturally turns into vapor. This vapor is then inhaled by the user that reaches his lungs and is then exhaled. The e-liquid usually consists of PG/VG blend, nicotine, and flavoring.

The cost is around A$800 a year with machine starting at around $40….. and finally

  2. Vaporizers are many times less harmful than traditional tobacco cigarettes, and vaping can even help smokers quit.American Heart Assoc outweigh its “potential” harms. Vaporizers are the first genuinely new way of helping people quit smoking that we have seen in many years. Royal Coolege of Surgeons

  3. Exhaled vapor has lesser volatile organic compounds than the normal exhaled breath, let alone exhaled smoke.Spanish research
