Why Do People Vape?

Maybe you’ve been vaping for ages. Maybe you’ve just started. Maybe you’re curious and want to try. Regardless, you’ve probably heard someone tell you their take on why people vape. Everyone has an opinion. But why do people vape? We thought we’d join the conversation and share a little information on the matter.

Smoking Cessation

This is probably the most well-known and most common reason people have for trying vaping. Smokers believe that e-cigarettes can help them quit smoking, and many have success stories to back up their claims. In fact, in the UK, the Public Health England (PHE) anti-smoking campaign, Stoptover, even endorses e-cigs as an efficient smoking cessation tool, featuring them in advertising campaigns on TV and on the radio.

It is easy to see why people find vaping to be an adequate smoking substitute. Vaping and smoking cigarettes are similar in a lot of ways, as they have very similar sensations for the user; both revolve around inhaling, and both give the throat and lungs a hit when partaking in the activity.

Additionally, research suggests that vaping is less detrimental to your health than smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. E-juice does not contain tar, and vaping does not produce the toxic carcinogens that we know smoking cigarettes does for its users.

Cloud Chasing

Cloud chasing has become a competitive activity among certain vaping enthusiasts. Cloud chasers use highly powerful mods with low resistance coils and special e-liquids designed to help them produce the biggest and thickest clouds possible when vaping.

It’s unlikely that anybody imagined this aspect of vaping becoming so popular when e-cigarettes were invented, but cloud chasing is becoming quite the popular activity among vaping aficionados in the United States and around the globe.


Last but not least, there’s a community to vaping. Maybe you have friends and coworkers who vape too. Maybe you’ve made a random friend outside while taking a vape break. Chances are, if you vape, you have encountered a fellow vaper while vaping before. This is all part of the vaping community.

There are now even special bars where people who share a passion for e-cigarettes can vape and share tips and tricks. From forums to YouTube videos, there is also a vibrant online vaping community.
