It's becoming a vicious cycle apparently. Smokers take up vaping because it's a 'safer alternative'. Yes, we still aren't quite sure how safe it really is. There is apparently a new threat to vaping. Picking up smoking. Yup. It's now going in reverse

There are people who picked up vaping to quit smoking. Now they're going back to smoking to quit vaping.
