What is Vaping?
The term ‘vaping’ defines the use of an electronic cigarette – or ‘e-cigarette’ – as a means of taking nicotine into the blood stream in place of a traditional tobacco cigarette. Vaping works by heating a substance called e-liquid using a battery and a coil, which in turn produces an inhalable vapour.
Vaping is a popular form of smoking cessation as it is 95% less harmful than traditional tobacco* and produces vapour rather than health-damaging smoke.
There are roughly 3 million people in the UK alone who currently use e-cigarettes as their preferred method of giving up smoking.
