Learn About The Difference Between Vaping and Smoking

Vaping vs. Smoking

Round One: Cost

  • Vaping: A better investment – costs less than cigarettes long term. Average vaper spends £5 a week.
  • Smoking: Average smoker spends £50 a week on cigarettes. This amounts to over £2,000 a year.

Round Two: Tobacco and Tar

  • Vaping: No tobacco, and therefore no tar, found in electronic cigarettes.
  • Smoking: Cigarettes contain tobacco. When you light a cigarette this is burnt, producing toxic tar.

Round Three: Smoke and Combustion

  • Vaping: Nothing is burnt in the process of vaping – only heated. No smoke is formed or inhaled – only vapour.
  • Tobacco: Burning tobacco = combustion and smoke. This produces harmful by-products e.g. carcinogens.

Round Four: Nicotine

  • Vaping: Users can control their nicotine intake. Different concentrations of nicotine available – including low and nicotine-free options.
  • Smoking: Users cannot control or lower the amount of nicotine in their cigarettes.

Round Five: Ingredients

  • Vaping: 3-5 ingredients. Flavouring, vegetable glycerine and propylene glycerine, both found in food and hygiene products. Also can contain distilled water and nicotine.
  • Smoking: Cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals which are inhaled into the lungs.

Round Six: Flavour

  • Vaping: A huge amount of different flavours available to try, from the standard to the weird and wonderful.
  • Smoking: Generally limited to tobacco or menthol flavours.

Round Seven: Smell

  • Vaping: Flavours produce a subtle, pleasant smelling, light vapour.
  • Smoking: Cigarette smoke causes bad breath and clings to your hair, clothes and furniture.

Round Eight: Second Hand Smoke

  • Vaping: No smoke formed, so no dangers of second-hand smoke inhalation.
  • Smoking: Smoking in the same environment as others can be detrimental to their health as well as your own.

Round Nine: Cancer and Disease

  • Vaping: No known links to cancer or lung disease. No carcinogens are produced.
  • Smoking: Proven to cause lung, throat and mouth cancer and a host of other diseases and health problems.

Round 10: Long-Term Effects

  • Vaping: Still relatively new to the market – long-term health effects are unknown.
  • Smoking: The long-term effects of smoking are known, including premature aging, infertility, disease and death.
