What is vaping?

Vaping is the act of inhaling smoke-looking vapor from an electronic cigarette or vape device. Vaping simulates smoking but in a less harmful manner.

A flavored nicotine liquid called vape juice (e-juice) is what’s in a vape, but not all vapes contain nicotine. The user decides the flavor and amount of nicotine they wish to use, if any at all.

What is a vape?

Vapes are handheld electronic devices for adults that produce inhalable fog-like vapor, often with nicotine and various flavors.

The first retail vape was an electronic cigarette designed to look like a tobacco cigarette. Created by Hon Lik, the e-cigarette was released by the China-based company, Ruyan, in the early 2000s. Then to Europe and America around 2007. Now different types of vapes range in design, power, and vapor-making ability. The basics of their functions and usage are the same as the first one made.

I read that a lot of people have already died from vape, is that right?
I want to start smoking vape but I'm afraid.
Assuming you truly are 21, do you currently smoke tobacco? Cigarettes, pipe, or cigars.
If you don't please do not start vaping. There are better things you can do with your young lungs.

Second thing is we do NOT smoke, we vape. There is no combustion producing smoke. E-cigs produce vapor not smoke.

The deaths you may have heard about were caused by counterfeit JUUL pods allegedly loaded with THC and other substances that caused the deaths. Nicotine e-cigs have not caused deaths and may have saved many lives by getting us off our combustible tobacco habits.

If you're an ANTZ (anti nicotine tobacco nazi) just go away.

Now I don't smoke anything but very much want to try vaping, at least with 0 nicotine. I love the vapor that it makes.

Are you dead yet? First, you said you want to start trying vapes, then say you have been vaping zero nicotine. Which is it?

Do I smell a troll?
I suspect this person does not even vape...does not even have a clue about how vaping can help so many people quit smoking. Maybe he is actually for real (I doubt it) I smell a troll too... and it stinks. There is much info about the this.... look it up OP.

@SnapDragon NY put me onto this one.

See, there's a subforum that only mods can see.
We have a thread full of potential shitbags that we go back and check on... to make sure they aren't being shitbags.

80% of the time someone on the shitbag list does something like edit bullshit links into posts a week after the fact, or like this one makes multiple accounts to talk to themselves thinking we are stupid.

it's like when they join the forum to reply to VU bot.
100% of members who join to talk to VU bot end up being spammers.
It got so bad that I got Joe to program VU Bot to close his own threads so what to the spammers do?
They begin posting in old 2017 VU Bot threads before we made him close his own threads :facepalm:

If you join a VAPING forum to reply to a VU Bot thread from 2017 that's a link to a deleted reddit thread about a cell phone then there is a 150% chance you are a shitbag.
In other words you are now so much of a shitbag that 50% of it rubs off on your family.
