What is Vaping?


What are vapes?

E-cigarettes or vapes are devices that heat a liquid to make vapour which a user can breathe in (or vape). Vapes are also called e-cigs (electronic nicotine delivery systems). Vape manufacturers say a vape contains no nicotine, but instead flavoured liquids, which are heated and then sucked into your lungs. Many studies have shown that most vapes do in fact contain nicotine. Nicotine is the highly addictive and harmful chemical found in cigarettes.

Clever marketing has led many people to believe that vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes. It is not! Tobacco companies are always looking for new customers. Vapes are a great way to get young people addicted to nicotine. As well as nicotine, vapes also contain other harmful chemicals which can cause short and long term health effects, including lung damage.
