Vaping is not treatment for a nicotine addiction and the flavor of vaping isn’t pleasant for those who are accustomed to traditional cigarettes. The flavor options were intended to attract cigarette smokers to prefer vaping instead of smoking.

Myth #4 – Vaping can be just as addictive as cigarette smoking
Nicotine is reported being delivered in lower amounts with vaping as opposed to getting a regular intake of nicotine with traditional cigarettes.
Myth #5 – Second hand vapor can be harmful to people around
Anyone that is passing through “vapor” is going to be barely even smell an odor or faint scent of a flavor.
