Many people have successfully used vaping as a tool to quit smoking. E-cigarettes provide a similar sensation to smoking and allow users to gradually reduce their nicotine intake.

There are various types of vaping devices, including vape pens, pod systems, and box mods. Each device has its own unique features and capabilities, catering to different vaping preferences.

Popcorn lung, or bronchiolitis obliterans, is a severe lung disease associated with inhaling certain chemicals.
