الجواب و بالله التوفيق

Since vaping is an alternative to smoking and its’ like smoking, it will have the same ruling as smoking.

With regards to smoking, some Scholars have mentioned that it is Haram and others have stated that it is Makrooh Tahreemi (reprehensible to a great degree). The same ruling is applicable to nicotine.

And Allah Knows Best.
