Isn’t vaping just as bad as smoking?

Lots of people wonder if vaping is really any better than smoking. After all, if you vape:

  • Aren’t you still addicted to nicotine?
  • Aren’t you still spending money on a worthless habit?
  • Isn’t it really just the same thing in a different package?

The answer to all of these questions is: “No!”

Disclaimer: This article is about vaping...

Vaping is a term that has been coined to refer to the use of a personal vaporizer in place of tobacco cigarettes. This article is not about tobacco cigarettes or tobacco products of any kind.

Knowledge Helps You Make The Most Of E Cig Benefits

Vaping gives you choices and control!

When you vape, you have the option of enjoying the habit/hobby without the nicotine if you so choose. You have the choice of taking in the same amount of nicotine you have been taking in, reducing it, or eliminating it.

Aside from these practical choices, there are lots of fun choices in flavors, colors, styles and accessories that you simply will not have with obsolete tobacco cigarettes. Vaping gives you literally hundreds of flavors to choose from. Some are quite traditional: tobacco, clove, coffee, chocolate. Others are wildly exotic: caramel mocha, banana, coconut, pear, cherries jubilee and many, many more.

Personal vaporizers come in a number of styles, from traditional cigarette style to pen-style, pipe-style, and even a very high-tech, modern rectangular style. Colors range from white, black, tan, silver, gold, red, and pink, to more exciting and interesting patterns, color combinations and “skins” you can use to dress your e-cig for any occasion!


Just as with any other technology on the market today, many people enjoy collecting e-cig accessories of all kinds. New chargers, cases, battery styles and so on come out every day, and the habit and hobby of vaping becomes more and more interesting and enjoyable to participate in.

Make friends and influence people!

Smoking generally puts people off, costs lots and lots of money, and eventually kills you, so it is definitely a very worthless thing to do. Vaping, on the other hand can be quite interesting to people. You may find yourself getting a lot of friendly questions from curious smokers and non-smokers when you vape.

What will you do with the money you save?

Vaping does cost money, but it is a fraction of the cost of obsolete tobacco cigarettes, and you get all kinds of positive benefits for your money (including lowered medical bills and possibly lowered insurance rates).

With smoking, you don’t get anything positive!

Vaping will not kill you! In fact it may very well save your life. When you vape, you control the nicotine and you do not take in ANY of the thousands of other toxic chemicals found in obsolete tobacco cigarettes. Vaping will also not kill your friends, relatives, co-workers, pets and house plants.

It’s all good!

If all of these great, positive things about e-cigarettes aren’t enough to convince you that vaping may be a very wise choice for you, think about all the negative things you won’t be doing anymore if you leave obsolete tobacco cigarettes behind and step into the brave new world of vaping.

When you vape, you don’t endanger the health of your family, friends, pets and total strangers with side-draft smoke. There is no smoke when you vape. You simply enjoy rich, flavored vapor that dissipates almost as soon as it appears. It won’t affect anyone but you, and it won’t bother anyone.

Be a better you!

Of course if you are not wreathed in toxic smoke all the time, you will be more pleasant to be around. You won’t smell like cigarettes. Your fingertips, hair and teeth won’t be stained. You won’t have an overflowing ashtray sitting next to you. People will probably tend to like you better!

You will like yourself better, too because you will be healthier. You won’t have a smoker’s cough, and you won’t suffer shortness of breath caused by inhaling smoke because you will not be inhaling smoke. You’ll probably find yourself catching fewer colds in winter, suffering less in the way of allergy symptoms, and generally enjoying better health.

Only you can prevent forest fires!

You won’t be a walking fire hazard any more! Your home, possessions and family will be that much safer from fire if you are not setting obsolete tobacco cigarettes on fire multiple times every day.

You can vape in the forest, in a barn, in bed, anywhere you like, and you won’t catch anything on fire! If you accidentally throw your e-cig out of your car window, you will not start a grass fire - but you might get a ticket for littering, so this is not recommended!

Be eco-friendly!

You will benefit the environment by not producing toxic, carcinogenic smoke. You will further benefit the environment by not throwing out multiple cigarette butts, packs and cartons, as well as all the paraphernalia involved in smoking (lighters, lighter fluid, matches, matchbooks, etc.)

When it comes right down to it, you will benefit the environment by not supporting the tobacco industry, which is a major polluter.

You will like them here or there!

One of the very best things about vaping is that you won’t have to lurk around in alleys and duck into the doorways of abandoned buildings in inclement weather anymore! You can just vape wherever you happen to be! If you are sitting at your desk working, you can vape. You can even plug your e-cig into the USB port of your computer to save your battery!

If you go out to dinner, you won’t have to excuse yourself while everyone else enjoys coffee and dessert. You can just sit right there and vape! You can even enjoy an after-dinner-liqueur flavored vaping experience if you wish!

If you go to the movies, you won’t have to miss important plot points to feed your addiction. You can sit right in your seat and enjoy vaping. You won’t bother anyone. In fact they probably won’t even notice.

    Yes, I think they are an excellent smoking alternative. I wish there wasn't so much misinformation floating around! :)

    Wonderful hub! I work with several people who use E-cigs ( including myself) and we all love them and tell other smokers about them. Almost like a cult following. I created a FB page for Vape users. Please feel free to like our page, and share a story, comment, or your favorite flavor!

    Thanks, Peggy and TorriLynn! Yes, I am absolutely sold on e-cigs. They benefit the user, the immediate environment and even the environment at large. When people stop smoking tobacco cigarettes and begin using electronic cigarettes, a HUGE amount of litter and pollution is eliminated!

    Hi Suzanne,

    Sharing this so that the smokers out there might start replacing their old smoking habits to benefit not only themselves but others around them as well. Hope you are having a good day! :)

    Yes, vaping is beneficial to everyone for a number of reasons. Of course, it benefits the health and pocketbook of the former smoker, but it also improves the quality of life for those around that person. When you choose electronic cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes, you protect your home and personal property against smoke damage and fire hazards, you lower your insurance rates across the board, and you protect your loved ones from the dangers of second hand smoke!

    Thanks for commenting, voting and sharing! :)

    This is an awesome hub for people who smoke, but I am thinking it is benificial for people who don't smoke. Voted up-UAI, pinned and shared.

    Glad I could be helpful! Yes, vaping is way more fun than smoking could ever be. It's a pastime and a hobby for many people, and it has many positive social and interactive qualities.

    I am really not concerned with the "big brother" thing. I see no problem with your ISP keeping track of what you tend to seek and making it easy for you to find it. If you happen to be a person who seeks red flag items like raw uranium and grenade launchers and helps stop you, I think that's just excellent! :D

    Hi, this was so strange, not the hub but the circumstance! lol! I have been looking at these e cigs all morning and noticed a bit that was written yesterday about how people were vamping up the vapors as they called it, in other words customizing them, google it, its amazing. And yes you are right, the vapors are more water than anything else, along with the taste, it was great to sign in and see this pop straight up! unless big brother is watching me and knew I had been looking.....! lol!

    Thanks! Yes, I think electronic cigarettes are an excellent invention and so much better than the pharmaceutical stop smoking devices! :)

    When my parents were trying to give up the habit of smoking which they eventually did...this might have helped them. So glad to hear of this product that helps smokers and non smokers alike. Up, interesting and useful votes!

    That's great! I'm glad to hear of your good experience. The brand you use can really affect your satisfaction level. I have been writing articles for one of the main e-cig suppliers in the nation for several years, so I have learned about all of the brands. I would say that v2 Cigs is the top brand because the company is US based, has been in business for a long time and has excellent reviews from experts and users, along with a very solid warranty and guarantee.

    Here's another article I wrote on the topic on RedGage that gives more specific information about V2 Cigs, Vapor Couture (their line for women) and Vantage Vapor (their economy line).

    I just recently started using the e-cigarette and really am quite impressed! I didn't believe that they could satisfy my nicotine craving like a regular cigarette, but they do and even taste better. I have not given up the real thing yet, but have greatly reduced how many I smoke and hope to give them up completely very soon. This is a great hub and I hope will inspire more people to try them and eventually give up the deadly cigarette! Voting up, useful, interesting and sharing!
