Vaping

What is Vaping?
 
Vaping is the inhaling of a vapor created by an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or other vaping device. A silhouette of an e-cigarette in a red circle with a red line through it.
   
E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. They have cartridges filled with a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. The liquid is heated into a vapor, which the person inhales. That's why using e-cigarettes is called "vaping". 1
