What is Vaping
WHAT IS VAPING?
Vaping is the electronic cigarette version of smoking. When you smoke a cigarette, you burn tobacco which produces the smoke that you inhale. When you use an electronic cigarette, e liquid in the tank or cartomiser is heated until it becomes liquid vapour, the vapour is then inhaled.
Because electronic cigarettes product vapour, e cigarette users are referred to a vapers and the act of using an e cigarette is called vaping.
IS VAPING SAFE?
Although vaping is a fairly new practice and there are still many tests to be carried out, electronic cigarettes contain only a hand full of ingredients compared to the thousands of ingredients found in a tobacco cigarette.
Litejoy electronic cigarettes contain Pharmaceutical Grade Nicotine, Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerol, Water and Food Grade Flavouring. All of the ingredients used in a Litejoy electronic cigarette have been widely used in every day products for over 50 years.
WHY SHOULD I VAPE INSTEAD OF SMOKING?
Electronic cigarettes don’t contain any of the 4000+ toxic and cancer-causing chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes making them a healthier alternative to smoking.
Electronic cigarettes are not included in the UK smoking ban so are legal to smoke anywhere, making them ideal for use while working, travelling and more.
Vaping is more cost effective that smoking. The average pack of 20 cigarettes now costs around £9 whereas the equivalent in e liquid (10ml bottle) costs £1.44 and cartomisers £3.50.
Electronic cigarettes have no known passive smoking risks.
With E Cigarettes, there is no skin or tooth staining, no lingering smoke smell on your hair and clothing and you won’t have cigarette breath!
IS VAPING A SMOKING CESSATION METHOD OR A SMOKING ALTERNATIVE?
Electronic cigarettes are not sold as a smoking cessation aid although there are many people who use them for this reason.
Litejoy products are sold as a smoking alternative and we like to think of our products as tobacco harm reduction devices for those people who enjoy smoking, don’t want to give it up but are concerned about the health or financial consequences of continuing to use tobacco cigarettes.
IS VAPING POPULAR?
Vaping is extremely popular! In fact, as cigarette smoking rates continue to fall, the number of electronic cigarette users worldwide is continuing
to grow at a staggering rate.
Big tobacco companies are even buying into the e cigarette market in an attempt to gain back some of their lost market.
Due to the variety of makes and models of e cigarettes available, large online communities of vapers continue to emerge. These forums, blogs
and websites attract thousands of people discussing a wide variety of vaping related subjects such as e liquid flavours, latest e cig models and
One of Litejoys favourite vaping communities is Planet of the Vapes.
