In the vaping community, we’re keen to distinguish ourselves from smoking. People often group smoking and vaping into the same basic category. This means that we tend to get a lot of the same stigma and reputation that smoking does. Obviously, this is something that you want to avoid when trying to promote the positive health effects of vaping. However, there’s been a recent step forward in that direction. A recent medical journal has been published which changes the way that we look at vaping and smoking, so it’s something we’re going to be looking at.

So What’s Been Happening? 

Recently, a new medical journal has been published. It’s titled “are e-cigarettes tobacco products?”. The study focuses on assessing whether or not you can class a normal cigarette and an electronic one as being the same thing. The study has ruled in favour of the electronic cigarette, saying that the two just aren’t one and the same. The logic behind this is that because the electronic cigarette doesn’t contain the tobacco leaves that are found in normal cigarettes, they can’t be classed in the same manner.

What Does This Mean?

It does mean that the vaping community can now have some long awaited breathing room. For a long time, we’ve tried to distance ourselves from smoking normal cigarettes as much as possible. It hasn’t been easy of course, as people do connect us with these kinds of cigarettes even when vaping is something entirely different. But how there’s proof and backing that the two aren’t the same. People can begin to defend vaping with more evidence and facts now, and the entire community can detach properly from the conventional cigarette. Indeed, all of the negative connotations which come with smoking aren’t going to be a problem anymore.

That’s part of what has held vaping back, in all honesty. We’ve been living in the shadows of smoking, with people presuming the two to be as bad as each other. However, now that vaping can become its own entity, perhaps it marks a turning point. We can forge a new reputation, one which is based on the health benefits and distinct departure from the conventional cigarette and all the negativity it holds. There’s none of the harmful chemicals in vaping that are in smoking, so it always seemed foolish and almost ignorant to class the two together.

Overall, this recent change to the classification of vaping can really provide a welcome change in how it’s viewed. People are forever defending vaping to the public, because we know that it’s just not like smoking. Having a new classification will definitely help to make sure that we’re not in the shadow of smoking any longer.
