People everywhere seem to be vaping. However smoking cigarettes, juuls, or even e-cigarettes are not good for you.

For some reason vaping has increased throughout the years. According to halocigs.com the big city vapers are in the midwest. From 2009 to 2016 the Laws Prohibiting E-Cigarettes have increased by 200 laws. This obviously means that if they are making that amount of laws in such a short amount of time then it most likely is because people have abused these substances.

People may want to switch from regular cigarettes to e-cigarettes to ease into the transition of going from smoking to not smoking at all because they may think that this makes it better.

However, the fact that e-cigarettes do contain nicotine doesn’t make it any better. According to hopkinsmedicine.org vaping is less harmful than cigarettes. E-cigarettes heat the nicotine and create it into water vapor that’s chemically flavored in order to attract more people. No one really knows what chemicals are exactly in their. 

Nicotine is highly addictive and it’s in vapes. Therefore, nicotine causes people to crave the smoke and it may even cause withdrawal symptoms in the case of ignoring a craving. Electronic cigarettes are said to help with quitting smoking. 

However, the Food and Drug Administration has not approved e-cigarettes as smoking cessation objects. A recent study showed that people who switch to e-cigarettes in order to stop using traditional cigarettes, have then gone back to using both e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes. 

E-cigarettes are more well liked around youth members than regular tobacco products. In 2015 the U.S. reported that e-cigarettes are more common among high school students. A lot of young e-cigarettes users have never smoked regular tobacco.  

E-cigarettes are more appealing to teens especially because the smoke isn’t really noticeable around others because they are flavored cartridges. 

So stop vaping or don’t vape if you haven’t tried it because it can obviously do some damage to you since it is a nicotine product and it is highly addictive.
