When it comes to vaping, the media gives us a pretty bad time. There’s a lot of things which are presented to be genuine issues and problems that simply aren’t true. We’re going to take a look at some of the most blatant lies which the media would have people believe, to make sure you have a good understanding of vaping.

Vaping is worse for you than smoking a regular cigarette

No. This lie is not true in the slightest. In fact, it is the other way around. Vaping is much better for you than smoking is. A vaping device contains none of the harmful substances which you can find in a regular cigarette, which includes such things as tar and carbon monoxide. The only remotely dangerous substance in vaping is the nicotine, and that is something which can be removed if the user wishes.

Vaping devices are prone to sudden explosions

What started as possibly a legitimate concern has been blown comically out of proportion by the media when one or two improperly handled vaping devices exploded. While it is true that a vaping device can explode when there’s too much power or lithium ion battery connects with the wrong object, the same could be said for a lot of technology. Taking proper care of your device will ensure that it stays in good condition for years, and also prevents sudden explosions from happening.

Vaping is aimed to get children into smoking

Parents are more than ready to go on the defensive if they think that vaping is a way for younger children and teenagers to get into smoking, using the devices as a gateway. However, we would like to take this moment to reaffirm once again that we do not approve of the selling of a vaping device to anyone under the age of 18. No one in the vaping community will knowingly sell to a minor, and will also ask for ID if they are suspicious. We don’t sell vaping devices to kids, and we never will, because it’s profoundly immoral and illegal. This also applies to the idea that all of the exotic flavours such as bubblegum and candy are ways to entice children. In those cases, it’s just making vaping a more pleasant exercise, as we all know how disgusting cigarette smoke can smell, and a lot of vapers don’t want that same experience.

Overall, these are just a few of the rumours which seem to circulate about vaping as given to you by the media. The actual truth of the matter is that vaping is a much healthier idea than smoking, and that we in the vaping community work tirelessly in order to promote a good image and make sure that people know we’re not trying to influence young people or introduce dangerous equipment. However, if you are looking for vaping supplies, then AS Vapour can provide you with a wide selection of different devices and e-liquids, all of which are safe and only available to those over the age of 18.
