Everyone knows how dangerous the smoking habit is. Even so the number of smokers did not decreased in any way or the decrease is insignificant. Quitting smoking is one of the most difficult tasks in the world and many people tried it and few of them succeeded.
The best thing you can do is to never fall in the temptation. It takes a lot of knowledge and personality to never try it, especially when you are young and vulnerable.
These days the regular cigarettes seem to have a powerful and popular competitor, namely the electronic cigarettes. They were promoted everywhere as a healthier way of smoking and no matter the bad publicity and the controversies created around the subject it seems that these devices’ popularity grew even more. As I said in my previous articles, publicity remains publicity no matter if it is good or bad.
In the following rows of this article I will talk about a negative phenomenon related to the e-cigs. The fact that many teens started vaping is something that should worry you quite much.
How to notice this habit on your kid and how to stop it or at least try to stop it you will discover if you continue your reading session.
How e-cigs work?
As I said they were promoted as a healthier way of smoking due to the fact that no carbon monoxide is involved in the process and the hundreds of noxious substances are reduced to just three or four. This means that it contains nicotine, propylene glycol and glycerin. At least these are the substances mentioned on most e-liquids labels. If you go for the ones with various flavors you will also see on the label this information as well.
They are not releasing any smoke and they can be smoked in many closed spaces just as restaurants, airports or anywhere where regular smoking is not allowed. The manufactures of these devices claim that the persons who stay near you while you vape, will not be affected in anyway.
Even if the phenomenon spread worldwide there are not enough studies to prove that they can do just as much harm as the regular cigarettes can. Some vendors also sustain that it is a step for quitting smoking for good if you reduce the quantity of nicotine gradually until you vape just flavored e-liquids with no nicotine content.
