Why Switch to Vaping – The Top 5 Benefits
If you’re a smoker, you may have heard a fair bit about vaping, and wondered whether the hype about it is justified.
There’s no question that e-cigarettes are ‘cool’ in an era in which new vaping shops are seemingly constantly popping up on our high streets. But is it worth the effort to switch from smoking to vaping permanently?
Here are five reasons why the answer to that question is “yes”.
It gives you a smoother transition to quitting for good
Superficially, vaping does look and feel a lot like smoking. Like smoking, it gives you a decent throat hit, as well as a cloud of vapour that largely resembles cigarette smoke.
Vaping also feels similar to smoking in that it involves you holding an item in your hand that could be mistaken for a cigarette from a distance, to say nothing of the regular inhaling and exhaling. And as if that wasn’t enough, there are even tobacco e-liquids on the market!
These similarities are all deliberate. Vaping largely developed in the first place in order to be a healthier alternative to smoking. And if you’re interested in quitting cigarettes permanently, vaping will give you a softer transition than the often ineffective ‘cold turkey’ approach would.
It’s healthier than smoking
While – as the UK National Health Service advises – vaping is not completely risk-free, it is much less risky to your health than the use of traditional cigarettes.
Tobacco smoke, after all, contains literally hundreds of dangerous toxins, many of them recognised carcinogens. By contrast, even the potentially harmful chemicals that do show up in e-liquids and their related vapour are at much lower levels than they are in cigarette smoke.
It provides a wealth of choice
Let’s face it – smoking isn’t just a greatly harmful habit, it’s also boring compared to the broad and fascinating world of vaping.
All manner of new vaping brands are constantly becoming available to the customer, offering the best in vape kits, tanks, coils, pods and e-liquids. Looking at the latter alone, you only need to visit a leading vaping online store, like Shisha Vibe, to see the remarkable variety of e-juice flavours – pretty much everything from almond and coconut to passionfruit and waffle.
It’s easy to do
You might understandably feel a bit intimidated by the world of vaping at first. “How,” you might wonder, “can I begin to make sense of all of these coils, pods and tanks?”
But there’s really no need to be scared. The leading vaping online stores all offer great starter kits for those looking to ease themselves into vaping. And in any case, e-cigarettes in general tend to be easy to use. Most of them consist of just two pieces, so all that you have to do is screw the cartridge end to the battery and puff away.
It’s just so much cooler than smoking
Yes, we touched on it above, but it’s worth re-emphasising the sharp contrast between the reputation of smoking these days, and that of vaping.
Say to someone that you’re a smoker, and that often ends the conversation. Tell them that you vape, though, and there’s a good chance that they’ll ask you about your vaping experience. They might even be curious about trying it themselves!
There’s no doubt about it: vaping is hip, although easily the hippest thing about it is the all-round benefit it can bring to your health and wellbeing. So, especially if you would like to quit smoking, ditching your cigarette for an e-cigarette could be well worth considering.
