Vaping dates back to the sixties, but it had not developed into its current status as most of the vaporizers were not portable. The brain behind vaping was Hon Lik, a Chinese pharmacist who lost his father to cancer as a result of smoking. He developed a device that he named Ryan, which translates to” like smoke.” These were how vaping was born and by mid-2000s it had gained momentum in the US. A vaporizer comprises of some parts namely: battery, tube, cartridge, cartomizer, atomizer, e-liquid, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings. The ingredients get vaporized in the battery powered atomizer that mimics smoking. When choosing a vaporizing device, one needs to understand how they work. Most two important things to consider are the tank and the battery that goes with it. For tanks, you can choose either a manual or an automatic device. As for batteries, one needs to deliberate on its ability to store power as well as the aspect of whether it is rechargeable or not.
For the cigarette smokers who are quitting and would like to try vaping as an alternative, information on the available products could be quite overwhelming. These needs not to be the case as there are three major products to choose from. The smallest e-cig is more convenient to start with as it is more discreet. With time, one can transition to the other products in the market.
The answer to whether vaping is safe or healthy is still subject to debate. However based on recent statistics that shows an increase in the number of people whose deaths are attributable to tobacco smoking causes such as lung cancer then vaping is considered to be a safer alternative. Most smokers who are trying to quit smoking prefer e-cigs as they provide the psychological benefits as well as reduce the health risks associated with tobacco smoking. These are because at the initial stage of vaping nicotine is provided which decreased periodically and finally eliminated completely. Vaping is not a means to replace smoking but a healthier alternative
