If you are a smoker, there will be more or less beneficial changes in your body following quitting smoking.
These days, with the high volume of awareness, the harms of smoking are less hidden from anyone, it is better to say that the body will welcome your decision with very significant positive changes after only twenty minutes of quitting smoking.
What happens when you quit smoking and start vaping, but in the following we will answer the above question.
What is vaping?
First, let’s define vaping:
In 1997, the Chinese made the world’s first e-cigarette, this type of cigarette was quickly distributed in the markets of different countries of the world.
The Chinese CrownV was in the shape of a pen.
And had the following components:
It had a steam generating section and inside it, propylene glycol and aromatic substances were used, which were steamed by the steam generating section and No toxic or chemicals were produced, But there was also a small capsule containing nicotine that could be charged.
It is true that tar and carbon dioxide are not produced in these cigarettes, but the consumer continues to inject nicotine into his or her body.
What the Chinese crownv company had suggested is that:
In this e-cigarette, the least amount of nicotine enters the body and it poses a lower risk to the health of consumers than traditional cigarettes.
The smoke that rises from this cigarette is related to the water vapor produced in this cigarette and can evoke the same feeling of cigarette smoke for a person without spreading toxic substances or creating an unpleasant odor.
Recipe and how to use these electronic cigarettes
You read in the recipe and how to use these e-cigarettes that:
You can use this product to reduce the level of tobacco and nicotine consumption.
There are four types of rechargeable nicotine cartridges for these cigarettes:
- High level, medium, low, zero
- If you want to quit smoking tobacco and nicotine, do the following:
- Use a high level cartridge first.
- Next on the medium cartridge
- And after these two steps, use low and zero cartridges one in between.
- In the last step, use only zero nicotine cartridges.
This cigarette works with a charged battery, has no odor and can be used indoors.
What you read was the general recipe for these e-cigarettes.
When a person puffs on an e-cigarette, the cigarette light comes on and the smoke, which is actually water vapor plus nicotine, comes out of the e-cigarette and the light goes out when the person stops puffing.
It should be noted here that no rigorous scientific research has been done on this subject and that the WHO has repeatedly warned about smokeless e-cigarettes made in China, which have unfortunately misused the WHO logo to positively portray their work.
WHOs Opinion on Electronic Cigarettes or Vapors
The World Health Organization states that, contrary to what is advertised by the companies that distribute these vapors, these tools are not a good way to quit smoking at all.
Physicians in charge of mental health and non-communicable diseases have indicated that these vapors are not an approved method for preventing and eliminating the dangers of nicotine use.
So far, the World Health Organization has not had any credible studies or documents to confirm the safety of this Chinese product, and it has even expressed concern about the excessive prevalence of this tool in the world, because this tool can also contain toxic and harmful substances.
In short, so far the World Health Organization has not confirmed the safety or effectiveness of this tool for quitting smoking.
It may be interesting to know that the idea of e-cigarettes dates back to the 1960s, Nicotine chewable tablets were used when seafarer smokers had to travel by submarine for long periods of time, and could not take cigarettes under the submarine, and this pill is probably the first effective drug to quit smoking.
There are studies that show that the side effects of e-cigarettes are much greater than conventional cigarettes.
Studies show that these products, under the best conditions, still enter at least eighteen types of harmful chemicals in the body and In addition to its disadvantages, it has not yet been confirmed that the nature of the smoking habit does not disappear with the use of these e-cigarettes.
What happens when you quit smoking and start vaping?
What happens in the lungs?
Some believed that by switching from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, the lungs would begin to repair, and said that within a few months the lungs will be cleansed of the harms of traditional cigarettes, but this cannot yet be said with certainty.
One of the doctors in the research project says that by quitting vaping, it will take 20 years for the lungs to be partially free from the harms of cigarettes and e-cigarettes.
Another point is that e-cigarettes are said to be more addictive than traditional cigarettes and will be much harder to quit than traditional cigarettes.
In December 2020, the largest medical university in the United States announced that:
- In 2020, there has been sixty deaths in people who have used vaping for a long time, e-cigarettes cause damage to the lungs that is called EVALI.
Some e-cigarettes, especially on the black markets and in developing societies, contain tetrahydrocannabinol.
The CDC also states that vitamin E acetate is a harmful chemical in the lungs of people with EVALI due to the use of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
According to the recommendation of CDC:
Avoid e-cigarettes containing THC.
Do not add anything to e-cigarettes or vapors.
- Nicotine is harmful to the heart and lungs, whether it enters the body through traditional cigarettes or e-cigarettes.
Nicotine is the strongest addictive substance.
Nicotine can raise your blood pressure and heart rate and ease heart attacks.
“People need to know that e-cigarettes can strongly damage their heart,” said by a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the United States.
Like traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes can cause or exacerbate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.
- Types of external strength cartridges, increasing the voltage of the vapor consumed or overheating these tools all cause even more nicotine to enter your body than a traditional cigarette.
