Vaping, We've all seen it. Some of us vape, some of us abstain for one reason or another. But my question is To Vape, Or Not To Vape?
Let's start by asking 'what is vaping?'. Vaping is to use an inhalant drug that has been vaporized by a small electronic device, hence, 'vaping'. The chemicals within Vape Pens (a form of E-cigarette) can vary, but normally contain propelyne glycol or vegetable glycerine. Many of them also contain a butt ton of nicotine.
Are they addictive? Definitely. The addictivity can vary with the potency and volume of chemicals present, but generally they are addictive. This is easily explainable with the Vape Pens that contain nicotine, but even if they do not the other chemicals, or just habit, can cause addiction.
Is it harmful? Fuck if I know. This is partly because there have been no conclusive scientific studies that can tell if it's harmful to vape. So at this point, we're kind of in the dark. If it makes people happy and nothing else, then that's just dandy. If it is also slowly killing people who vape, then it may as well be the next tobacco.
CL, what is your view on Vaping? Do you vape, or no? What are your reasons for yae or nae? Is vaping harmless fun, or would we be better off without?
