Causes of Vaping

Learn more with hub.health

As with any substance addition, there is no one cause for someone to start vaping.

Research points towards many ex-smokers taking up vaping as what they say is a healthier alternative to smoking. Get access to quit vaping treatments today with hub.health.

One of the most well-known differences between vaping and smoking is that e-cigarettes do not contain the harmful tobacco that is found in traditional cigarette products.

Vape products use a battery operated system that warms the internal e-liquid to be vaporised and inhaled by the user.

Why do people vape?

Although the e-liquid used in vaping devices does not contain tobacco, it still contains nicotine – a harmful and addictive substance.

Vaping Causes

While there is no one specific cause for vaping, some of the most common reasons why might vape include:

  • Peer pressure
  • Cheaper cost than cigarettes
  • No tobacco
  • More discreet than smoking
  • Flavour profile
  • No residual smell or staining
  • Misinformation
  • Self-medication
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Social surroundings
  • Parental influence
  • Media influence

It’s time to look after your health
