Perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions we come across when it comes to vaping is that people think it is the same as smoking. Nothing could be further from the truth! Here at VaporFi, we happily sell many vape products to people who want to quit smoking forever.
Is Vaping Like Smoking or Not?
It may seem strange to us that someone would want to know whether vaping is considered smoking, but from a layperson’s point-of-view, we can understand the question.
3 Differences Between Vaping & Smoking
In the spirit of outlining just why vaping is not considered smoking, here are some of the biggest differences:
#1 No smoke
When someone lights up a traditional cigarette, tobacco and a whole range of other chemical products are burned. The person inhales the smoke and then exhales it, leaving a dense and smelly cloud of smoke hanging in the air. By contrast, a vape pen vaporizes a glycerine-based liquid very quickly. This produces a light vapor that can be inhaled and exhaled by the vaper. There’s no dense smoke and no foul lingering smell that seeps into furniture and clothing.
#2 No tobacco
While you can purchase vape juice that tastes like tobacco and that contains nicotine, the vape juice itself does not contain tobacco or nicotine like cigarettes do.
#3 Few chemicals
Traditional tobacco products contain hundreds of chemicals, many of them carcinogenic. In fact, scientific testing has even detected the presence of small amounts of cyanide in some tobacco products! Vape juice is very simple by comparison. It doesn’t contain the hundreds of dangerous chemicals.
Traditional smokers face some pretty stiff rules and regulations when it comes to smoking in public. Vaping, by contrast, is not illegal and can be performed in public areas. It is important to understand the rules surrounding vaping though, since some states in Australia have slightly different laws. In some states, for example, it is illegal to use a vape pen in a car with people under the age of 16.
