Vaping, e-smoking and regular smoking
What is the difference?
Is that cloud that you blow out after taking a draft of the e-cigarette smoke or not? What does "vaping" actually mean? We explain the terms vaping, e-smoking and smoking on this page in short, it is simpler than you may think!
Vapen is the new smoking ... or is it not?
An old-fashioned cigarette with tobacco works on the basis of burning, and smoke is released. An e-cigarette works on the basis of evaporation, vapor is released. Smoke and vapor is not the same; smoke comes from a fireplace, vapor comes from the kettle on the gas stove. Both are a result of heating, but the result is very different.
Vapor and vaping
The term "vaping" came from the noun "vapour" when people made a verb of it. So you can say that you vaporize or vape with an e-cigarette, but it is not the same as smoking. The effect can be the same if you use e-liquid with nicotine, but without the harmful effects of tar and soot in your lungs.
