Know the Truth About Tobacco- What is Vaping?


Vaping is the inhaling of a vapor created by an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or other vaping device. E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. They have cartridges filled with a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. The liquid is heated into a vapor, which the person inhales.

Vaping was created as an alternative and safer method for adults to quit smoking, however, teenagers who’ve never picked up a cigarette are now vaping in record numbers.
