For as long as we can remember, it has been established that smoking is harmful towards a human being’s health. The consumption of nicotine through smoking causes many adverse health effects which may even prove fatal. According to statistics, there are 17.3 million smokers in the Philippines; each one of these people are exposed to the risks associated with cigarette smoking. With the rise of vaporizers or more commonly known as vape/s, however, a solution presents itself. Vapes, or e-cigarettes, are effective and safer alternatives to tobacco.

We are all aware that second-hand smoke has many adverse effects on people's health. Even if you're not a smoker, second-hand smoke can cause damage to your throat and lung due to many toxic chemicals in tobacco smoke. In fact, secondhand smoke has proven to be more cancerous and risky towards the health. With vaporizers, however, that risk is reduced to nothing; the risk posed by secondhand vape smoke is significantly reduced, if not removed altogether. Therefore, it is indeed safer not only for the user, but for nearby individuals as well.

Some studies show that in smoking cessation, e-cigarettes can be active. E-cigarettes have been shown in several studies and surveys to potentially help smokers reduce their addiction or fully quit. One research in New Zealand found that e-cigarettes were as effective as patches in nicotine. For smokers who want to quit smoking, vaping can help significantly. While it allows the smoker to keep the habit, the vice of cigarette smoking is replaced by a much safer alternative without the once associated carcinogens and health risk factors. In this modern day, technology never fails to surprise us. It is through the innovation of technology that we now have products such as vaporizers and e-cigarettes. However, we must still keep in mind that while it is safer, it remains a vice for people. Still, it is an inarguable fact that with all benefits considered, vaping is better than smoking in almost all aspects.

          We as students, even in our own little ways want to make a change to the society for its betterment. We do know that there are many ways to resolve this issue about smoking. One of those ways is to issue higher prices on traditional tobacco cigarettes for the consumers or customers to lessen the items they would want to buy due to financial necessities, which the government should improve and work on because the prices at this moment are still not enough to make consumers lessen their intake. On the other hand, e-cigarettes or vapes prices must be reduced as well. Moreover, the government should address more pro-vaping advocacies to smokers all over the world. In addition, the vaping industry, including some business firms related to it shall be just and continue their developments for the betterment of many. Another proposal is to engage a campaign for smokers that would give them enough knowledge and practices or ways on how to quit smoking and introducing e-cigarettes as a substitute. In order to achieve desirable improvements, let’s start it among ourselves, specially at home if we have relatives who are smokers let us do all our best to help them get out of their addiction to smoking. But also put in mind that e-cigarettes are just an alternative but still to be use responsibly by the users.
