8 most common myths about vaping vs smoking 

Vaping is harmless because it doesn't produce tar like smoking: While vaping does not produce tar like traditional cigarettes, it still exposes users to harmful chemicals and toxins, including nicotine, flavorings, and other additives.

Vaping is odorless and doesn't leave a smell like smoking: Vaping can emit a noticeable odor from the flavored e-liquids used in vaping devices, although it may be less pungent than cigarette smoke.

Vaping is a safe alternative to smoking and can help people quit: While some people use vaping as a smoking cessation aid, evidence on its effectiveness is mixed, and vaping still carries health risks, including nicotine addiction and potential long-term health effects.

Secondhand vapor from vaping is harmless: Secondhand vapor from e-cigarettes may contain harmful chemicals, although typically at lower levels compared to secondhand smoke from traditional cigarettes.

Vaping is not addictive because it doesn't contain nicotine: Many e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive. Regular use of nicotine-containing vaping products can lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms.

Vaping is only for adults and doesn't appeal to youth: Vaping among youth has become a public health concern, with many young people experimenting with e-cigarettes and becoming addicted to nicotine.

Vaping doesn't have any long-term health effects: The long-term health effects of vaping are still largely unknown, and research is ongoing to understand its potential impacts on respiratory health, cardiovascular health, and other aspects of well-being.

Vaping is completely safe because it doesn't produce smoke: While vaping may be less harmful than smoking traditional cigarettes due to the absence of tar and combustion, it still exposes users to potentially harmful chemicals and carries its own set of health risks.
