Is Vaping a Habit or a Hobby?

I’ve covered a wide range of topics here at the Wild Blogger but this particular subject of vaping being a habit or hobby hasn’t ever been broached.

I started thinking about it when I noticed how many devices I have accumulated over 2+ years of vaping and my fascination with science and chemistry recently. Never mind that these subjects gave me the blues in high school because as of right now, they are all I think about.


For me, vaping didn’t start out as either habit or hobby. I simply wanted to quit smoking and my efforts to do so had been ineffective for many years until I stumbled across the greatest company on Earth (shameless plug here).

As time passed, I have noted that it has become more of a habit, the same as smoking was for me. But in a good way. It helps my nicotine craving, which has lessened as time has passed and I find it utterly enjoyable to seek out flavors that I love.


But I wanted to take it to the mean streets of Facebook to see what our e-juice group members thought. So I created a poll in the group to find out people’s answers to the question: is vaping a habit or hobby for you?

Check out the results, and some written responses below. Then feel free to join our group and the conversation. There were some surprisingly candid responses that you wouldn’t expect.

A whopping 207 people claimed vaping has become a habit for them, while only 51 said it was a hobby. About 20 people said it was both and 2 more said they hadn’t even started vaping yet but wanted to. Let’s take a look at some written responses from our group members to see what they had to say about their vape journey.

Vaping is a hobby for me. I like learning new things and seeing how different mods, tanks, and wires work in different combinations. Getting the “perfect” airflow, build, and wick for me and my husband is something I look forward to.” -Tamara G., Facebook e-juice group


“It’s both a habit and a hobby for me. I still get the nic cravings even with it being 3.5 years since I’ve quit smoking. I started with the old Ego pens but once I started using mods, it started to become a hobby with learning to build using RDAs/RDTAs, DIY making my own juice, and wanting to try different mods.”

Brian K., Facebook e-juice group


As you can see, we got quite a mixed bag of answers but there’s one thing that remains constant and that’s the obvious life-changing effects that vaping has had on everyone.

No matter if it’s a hobby that you enjoy by learning to build coils, making your own juice, and finding new flavors or it’s habit that has helped you to kick the other stinkier one, there is one thing that is for certain: vaping is absolutely here to stay for us to enjoy for years to come.
