When you light smoke, the combustion is incomplete because oxygen is insufficient in the combustion process and it produces very harmful substances. Scientists say that there are thousands of substances contained in smoke and out of this number, only a few of them have been studied and over 300 of the substances that have been studied have been proven to be very hazardous. However, vaping does not involve burning, the vaping liquid is heated and the vapor is what is given off.

2.       Content:

This is one way to differentiate smoking from vaping. The substance that is burned in smoking is dried leaves that have been processed and rolled up into sticks. However, for vaping, vape oils or e-liquids are used. These liquids come with brand new vapes but when they finish you have to buy new liquids and refill your vape, unlike smoking where the stick is exhausted at once and cannot be reused. Vaping also allows you to choose the kind of liquid or flavor that you will like to use.

3.       Nicotine:

There is a wide misconception that vaping and smoking involve nicotine when in truth nicotine is not used in vaping. Nicotine is an addictive substance and it is one of the things that makes people excessive smokers. Vape oils do not contain nicotine, whereas the concentrates that are burned in smoking contain nicotine.

4.       Cost:

Cigarettes and other materials used for smoking are cheaper than vaping devices. This makes cigarettes and other smoke much more affordable than vapes. However, when you buy a vaping device, you get to use it for a long time before you can consider changing it. All you have to do is to keep restocking on your e-liquid. If you can also maintain your vaping device, you will be able to avoid the cost of repairing your vaping device from time to time. This makes vaping more cost-effective in the long run.
