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. 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.

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

Regardless of whether you transitioned to vaping after being a smoker or have only ever used vape products, there are  several effective treatments available to aid in quitting vaping.

Frequently asked questions

In most cases, NRT is the most effective treatment to quit vaping products. Although the body still receives nicotine through a different dispersal method, it is a controlled, low-dose release that is only used for a short period to assist in the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.

As recommended by Therapeutic Guidelines Australia, a member of the hub.health team may prescribe nicotine replacement therapy, combination therapy or pharmacotherapy.

If you feel the urge to vape within 30 minutes of waking in the morning or are vaping multiple times throughout the day, you will likely develop nicotine dependence. For patients that align with this category, NRT is often recommended as an aid to quit vaping.

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance. When people choose to quit vaping, it is not uncommon to experience severe nicotine withdrawals.

Abruptly eliminating nicotine from your body can cause significant mental and physical changes, making it difficult for people to regulate their emotions during this time of transition.

Although the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal can be uncomfortable, they cannot hurt you and are only temporary. Prescribed treatments are an effective way to ease withdrawal symptoms and can provide a more sustainable solution than going it alone with the cold turkey method.

Rosacea is an inflammatory condition that exclusively affects the face. However, in some cases people may experience symptoms on their ears, eyes, neck, upper back, and chest.
