9 Vaping Pros and Cons You Should Consider - The Cons

May 26,2023 | Flavortower

Cons of Vape

1. Too many options:

For new vapers or smokers considering a change, the endless options available in the vaping market can be overwhelming. With cigarettes, you can pick a brand and light it, but with e-cigarettes, there are millions of possible choices. That's why it's best to point vape curious to easy-to-use products with simple getting-started instructions, and then point new vapers to good sources of further information (vape shops, forums, experienced vapers) as they learn the finer points.

2. The vape learning curve:

Probably the biggest danger for a new vaper is buying a product that requires expertise. They are often confused and frustrated and regret trying to switch to vaping. Again, no long learning curve is required! Simple starter products are almost always the best first choice.

3. Potential health risks:

Indeed, e-cigarettes are too new for us to understand every potential risk they may pose. But if you're vaping to stay away from cigarettes, you can rest easier knowing you've avoided the well-documented harms of smoking. Substances in cigarette smoke that make them particularly harmful are either completely absent in e-cigarette vapor or present in only trace amounts. This makes e-cigarette users and bystanders affected by "second-hand vapor" safer.

4. E-cigarette users face smoking stigma:

For nearly 60 years, tobacco control has focused on the “denormalization” of smoking, which is just a fancy word for stigmatizing smoking and smokers. Now, the war on the drugs-style campaign that dehumanizes smokers is being turned against vapers as well. Because vaping looks like smoking to non-vapers, smokers who switch to safer vaping products are often dismayed to find that they face the same stigma stemming from ignorance, Fear, and intolerance.

5. Vaping considered a youth problem:

As news continues to flow about a "teenage vaping epidemic," older smokers may shy away from vaping as a way to quit. Adults of every age love vaping — the legal age to buy one is 21 — but for those starting now, shortly after the “JUUL scare” era, it may be It is not easy to distinguish the benefits of harm reduction from the teen fad idea of vaping.

6. Nicotine Misinformation:

Nicotine can be as misunderstood as any drug in the world. It's just a mild stimulant that has similar effects to caffeine. But with its history inextricably linked to smoking -- a highly dangerous delivery mechanism -- nicotine gets a bad rap. Nicotine does not cause cancer or heart disease, but many people confuse the effects of nicotine and smoking, including doctors who regularly treat lifelong smokers. Nicotine can confer health benefits for many users.

7. Restrictive laws and regulations:

Based largely on the vaping “epidemic” promoted by anti-vaping groups, vaping has become a ripe target for laws and regulations that reduce the choice, availability, and cost of vaping. More than half of the U.S. states tax vaping products, and Congress recently passed a law banning the U.S. Postal Service from shipping vaping products. Some states ban vaping products in flavors other than tobacco.

8. FDA regulations could eliminate vaping options:

Possibly the biggest government threat to vaping is the Food and Drug Administration's Premarket Tobacco Application (PMTA) process. Last fall, manufacturers who wanted to keep their products on the market were forced to submit complex applications to prove they were "suitable to protect public health." Experts believe the FDA will use the PMTA process to remove many of the best vaping products from the market. (By the way, cigarettes do not need to submit a PMTA to enter the market.)

9. Finding the truth about vaping is not easy:

E-cigarettes are a disruptive technology that threatens the tobacco industry, but also the powerful anti-smoking industry. For smokers or vapers new to vaping, it can be difficult to tell the real from the fake as these powerful enemies advance their narratives in various news outlets and even through joint federal agencies. Because there are so many scary stories about vaping. It's easy to be scared off.
