Vapes are to e-cigarettes as a tissue is to Kleenex, right? It's just the same thing, right? Wrong! E-cigarettes are generally made to look like, you know, cigarettes and have a short lifespan. Vapes, on the other hand, are rechargeable, reusable, totally customizable. With a vape, you can pretend you're some kind of smoking alchemist matching and mixing your favorite e-liquids until you find the perfect blend. Consider yourself a modern day Nicholas Flamel, but instead of discovering the key to immortality you find the ideal mix of very berry and citrus. That's basically the same thing.
With actual cigarettes falling by the wayside to make room for better alternatives, vapes and e-cigarettes are quickly moving in to take their place. No smell, saving money, and less tobacco are only a handful of the benefits that switching to vapes or e-cigarettes bring. Not to mention being able to stay indoors when it's freezing cold and not having to bum from strangers when you're in need of a fix.
