25. The redeeming value of vaping is twofold

1. It is one of the best tools available for smoking cessation. It is one of the best because not only does it deliver nicotine (as you correctly stated), but it also mimics the actual feel and motions of smoking, thereby helping folks reduce the urge to use a cigarette. Cigarette smoking is FAR more than just nicotine delivery. There is a whole ritual associated with it that brings pleasure. Vaping helps mimic this while reducing exposure (notice I did not say eliminate) to harmful toxins found in cigarette smoke.

2. It is an effective method for reducing nicotine dependence in those who want it. And this effect comes by way directly of the varied flavors available. As a person advances in vaping they necessarily reduce the level of nicotine in the e-liquid used. Because of the flavors available other than tobacco flavor people who vape tend to move on to more and more powerful devices. The more powerful the device the less nicotine they can actually tolerate in their vape. Many either vape low to zero nic e-liquid or outright just quit.

You may say, well none of these effects would preclude one from getting a prescription to experience them. And you would be right. What would happen, however, is the cost of vape equipment and e-liquid would skyrocket due to the now limited market. Part of the allure with people who smoke even trying vaping is that at the outset vaping is more economical. However, restricting access by way of prescription would send many manufactures out of business and few would remain. Price would necessarily increase. As a result fewer and fewer people would be able to receive the benefits from this technology. This would then cause smoking rates to increase where as a direct result of vaping smoking rates are decreasing.

There are other benefits to vaping, and I suppose you may never know them. Good for you. These that I named above are the most important, however.
