That can depend. Let’s see from what.

We all know that vaping is not smoking because users don’t inhale tobacco like traditional cigarettes, but it produces the same effects. One of these is the release of adrenaline, which happens when we are frightened or in a stressful situation. Adrenaline is known to increase heart rate and blood pressure. If you’re vaping and you’ve never used nicotine before, the adrenaline that is released could cause your heart rate and blood pressure to go up higher than usual from the nicotine in your e-liquid. If you already have high blood pressure or heart disease, this could put your body at higher risk for problems.

Does vaping make you gain weight?

The factor affecting weight gain is that vaping makes food taste much better. Some people trying to lose weight use e-cigs because the sweet flavor from their e-liquid can help curb their appetite. This can be good for skinny people trying to stay thin, but this can be bad news for those who are already overweight or obese. In addition to the fact that vaping causes your taste buds to react differently, e-liquid is usually loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners. If you’ve noticed that your friends tend to snack on more high-calorie foods after vaping, it’s probably because the flavor in their e-liquid has given them a false sense of being satisfied.

So, in conclusion: Yes. Please stop vaping.
