Is Vaping Really the Answer?
Public health statistics indicate that most adults who smoke would rather that they didn't and many of them will attempt to quit at some point during a given year. However, the success rate at stopping is relatively low.
The most popular interventions involve medications and nicotine replacement products.
Many of the prescription stop smoking medications have serious side effects that can be rather frightening, so they are not right for everyone. They can also be rather expensive depending on your health insurance coverage.
The nicotine replacement products such as patches or gum have some successes but a higher percentage of failures in large part because they don't address the subconscious mindset that drives the addiction. I often wonder, does it really make sense to treat an addiction by giving the person more of the same substance?
Some smokers are switching to vaping, perceiving it as safer alternative to smoking regular cigarettes. However, that idea is being called into question. For starters, some devices have spontaneously ignited and have caused serious burns and even deaths. Although there are some who state vaping is a preferable alternative because of the lack of open combustion, the long term safety data is not yet in with this relatively new product. No one is sure what the long term health effects of habitually heating and inhaling the vape fluid into your lungs will be. Do you want to be one the "test subjects" who finds it wasn't as safe as promised?
