What's the difference between vaping and smoking?
While a cigarette is lit, there is no combustion process with an e-cigarette. Accordingly, fewer pollutants are released and passive smoking is also avoided. This infographic clearly shows the differences.

Can I stop smoking with the e-cigarette?
If you are very strong-willed, you can. But you could probably do it without the e-cigarette!
But if you don't just suffer from nicotine withdrawal symptoms, you can find a good way to break through your well-founded behavior patterns (the Zigi in the morning, after dinner, at a party, etc.). But that alone is not enough and we therefore recommend our combination technology , which has so far brought very good results.
Vaping? I'm making a fool of myself ...
In Switzerland, it is actually still the case that you get a little funny look when you steam. Slowly but surely, the picture is also changing here and the e-cigarette is just as much part of our everyday life as in many places worldwide.
No matter if you are a beginner with a disposable e-cigarette or a full professional with hardware that is highly technical - today nobody makes a fool of himself when he shows publicly that he swears off smoking. Rather, the smokers are viewed crookedly and banished everywhere.

our FOPH should be concerned about the health of the citizen and support every reasonable possibility to reduce smoking
Swiss customers can easily order such liquids abroad and then stock up there
Vaping of such liquids is permitted abroad.
We share our state's concern about liquids, the ingredients of which are not entirely clear and which are produced under dubious circumstances - but we know that there are numerous tested and certified manufacturers of such liquids that work extremely well.
And honestly - we are a little surprised if the consumption of alcohol is not a problem and also that of cannabis (from whatever source) should be legalized, while the nicotine-containing liquids do not move.
But we are confident that there will soon be movement in this topic, now that large tobacco companies with a lot of budget for lobbying have appeared on the market and sell products with nicotine under the same common term "e-cigarette"; - ) ...
