Why switch from cigarettes to vape? Why not just quit?
Many smokers still enjoy the physical sensations involved in smoking – the mouthfeel and the inhalation and find vaping a relaxing alternative.
Can e-cigarettes really help me stop smoking?
With the ability to control your level of nicotine consumption, it's easier to wean yourself off nicotine dependence. Every person is different, however, and results vary depending on the individual. While there are no guarantees that vapes will help reduce traditional tobacco use, there is much anecdotal evidence stating success for many ex-smokers.
Are e-cigarettes safe to use?
The devices themselves are very safe to use, and the liquid inhaled is mostly water vapor, similar to inhaling steam in a sauna or very hot shower. In fact, the British Public health announced in 2015 that e-cigarettes are about 95% safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. Just like any electronic device, however, instructions regarding use should be read fully and followed. Beginners should stay with beginner-level vapes, and advanced users are encouraged not to self- modify devices.
What type of side effects can I expect from vaping?
Actually, there are no real side effects from e-cigs, except for a rare allergy or sensitivity to propylene glycol (PG), which causes slight irritation to the back of the throat. Smokers who use vaping as a smoking cessation aid will experience withdrawals from the cigarettes, but those are not related to the e-cigarette use itself.
Should I use liquid with nicotine to quit smoking?
This is entirely up to the individual. Hazetown Vapes in Toronto aren't medical doctors, and our suggestion is that you discuss with your physician how vaping can help you reduce your nicotine dependence.
If vaping isn't like regular smoking, then what are the laws and regulation surrounding it?
The current regulations regarding vaping are the same as those applied to cigarettes. Restaurants and bars, as well as other public places, do not allow vaping indoors. Unless the owner of a private establishment has written consent to allow vaping in the building, users of e-cigarettes are advised to vape outside or in designated areas.
