It wasn’t long after vaping came into being that it became popular among smokers and those who desire to quit smoking. It is known to be a healthy alternative to smoking cigarettes.
A study shows that if every cigarette smoker were to vape, over 3.3 million life-years would be saved by 2070.
Apart from a sharp 57% reduction in dangerous substances present in a cigarette (ethylene oxide, vinyl chloride, and acrylonitrile), the differences between vaping and smoking cigarettes are noticeable. Research shows it has social, health and economic benefits that cannot be ignored.
Here are some of the benefits of e-cigarettes.
They are affordable
An average smoker spends a significant amount of money on cigarettes annually. Switching to e-cigarettes will save you a significant amount of money with the same level of satisfaction. All you have to do is buy a quality vaping rig which includes some cartomizers and batteries. The kits will last you a long time if you go for a good brand.
What is more, you can get an even better experience from vaping in the future, as the technology is getting more advanced by the day.
Avoid teeth stain and bad odour
Tar and nicotine which are present in cigarettes create a strong odour which takes a while to dissipate. When cigarettes are smoked on a regular basis, the smoker’s teeth become stained, giving him an unhealthy look.
This can be avoided by switching to electronic cigarettes. The smell of e-cigarettes is neither persistent nor unpleasant, as e-juices come in different fruity flavours.
They are socially accepted
There are many social restrictions around smoking cigarettes. Many countries have laws that prohibit the smoking of cigarettes outside your home while many others have many areas you are not allowed to smoke in.
Even for the less religious, smoking tobacco around people can be interpreted as being rude.
Because of its pleasant smell, you can vape around people even if they are non smokers.
It is fun
Unlike the traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes come in different flavours:
- Cherry, and many more
You can also mix up some of those flavours to come up with an entirely new one.
Reduced nicotine intake
With vaping, you get to determine the percentage of nicotine you take every day. You can also get e-juices which contain no nicotine. That is why smokers switch to vaping to break the habit of smoking. This is quite unlike the traditional cigarettes where you consume a high amount of nicotine daily. Smokers who have struggled to quit smoking without success attest to how quick they were able to cut down on their nicotine intake once they were introduced to vaping.
Generally, if you want a large dose of nicotine, you can have up to 36 mgs in your e-juice. There are many options with regard to the amount you can take.
When you vape the essential oils in e-liquids, you experience a calming sensation. It contains anti inflammatory properties and helps reduce irritation in the throat.
Research has shown that vaping can significantly reduce the number of deaths associated with smoking. It has also proven to be an effective step towards quitting smoking, as smokers can drop the habit without experiencing the withdrawal symptoms. Although further studies are still needed to determine the health implications of vaping, but it is a healthier and cost-effective alternative to smoking.
