Tobacco still kills six million people around the world every year. This is because people are unaware about benefits of vaping.
Despite huge public health efforts to help people quit and prevent young people starting, smoking remains the single greatest cause of ill health and premature death.
And even with restrictions on tobacco advertising and smoking in public places, many young people continue to take up smoking.
The situation is even worse in poorer countries, where support to stop smoking is limited, and tobacco control policies weaker.
So, considering this, how should we view the increasing popularity of electronic cigarettes?
Many, if not the clear majority of those interested in electronic smoking, are current smokers. Chances are you’re one of them – searching for an alternative but wanting to understand the benefits of switching from your current brand.
E-cigarettes are indeed an alternative to traditional cigarettes. They’re a suitable alternative for many because of the benefits they have over “smoking.”
We invite you to continue reading for 5 of the leading benefits of vapors has over traditional cigarettes…these benefits were discovered from customer feedback as well as numerous scientific studies examining both traditional and e-cigarettes.
Benefits of Vaping:
- E-cigarettes do NOT have that distinctive odor
Scent from cigarette smoke gets into, and clings, to just about anything it meets – hair, clothes, your car – anything. Not only does the odor cling, many consider cigarette smell offensive and avoid close contact. If you’re a smoker, you don’t notice it so much since you’re immersed in it all the time. To non-smokers, and especially ex-smokers, this smell is very noticeable.
Scent from cigarette smoke is not only bad in smell but also make people irritate of you when you go close to them. There are many people who do not care about this fact much but the truth is different.
One reason cigarette smoke smells so bad is because you’re burning tar and chemicals in addition to the tobacco itself. Properties from burning these substances make them cling to clothing, hair, walls, furniture, etc.
E-cigarettes on the other hand do not have this ominous odor because instead of exhaling smoke, you’re exhaling a vapor that evaporates almost immediately. Customers and non-smokers/vapers report the smell from an e-cigarette to be either nonexistent or reminiscent of cotton candy or even pop tarts!!
- Electronic smoking is MUCH cheaper than traditional cigarettes
If you’re a smoker reading this, you can certainly relate to this point – cigarettes are expensive these days.
E-cigarettes do not share this dilemma. While some of the entry costs of a starter kit may be a little bit higher, the month-to-month cost of electronic smoking is typically about half when compared to traditional cigarettes. Cartomizers and batteries constitute the bulk of this expense, which can range anywhere between $20 and $40 depending on how much you vape.
- E-cigarettes are much safer
Since you’re “burning” tobacco, not to mention using an open flame to light it, traditional cigarettes by default pose serious fire hazards. Cigarettes are in fact the #1 cause of fire-related death in the United States and 7 other countries. Worldwide, fires started by lit cigarettes constitute 10% of all fire-related deaths.
With e-cigarettes, you’re not burning an open flame and don’t have a hot cherry that can burn you, your clothes, your furniture, and so on.
There was an incident where an e-cigarette exploded in the user’s face in early 2012. It was determined though that the unit the person was using was a “mod,” which is a way vapers can alter their devices for more power that involves stacking the batteries. When used as intended, there have been no reports of an e-cigarette exploding.
- Vapors are way more Healthy
While we can’t make the claim that e-cigarettes are healthier, we can point out how traditional cigarettes are harmful to your health.
You don’t have to take our word for it – there are countless studies out there showing how smoking traditional cigarettes can put you at a higher risk of a whole host of conditions, including (but not limited to) – stroke, heart attack, lung cancer, throat cancer, pneumonia, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and countless others.
Traditional cigarettes contain a litany of chemicals as well, many of which are considered carcinogenic, or cancer causing.
Many of our customers have reported feeling better physically after switching to electronic smoking.
- Vapor are more helpful while Socializing
Finally, are the social impacts of traditional cigarettes, which is in a way related to reasons one through four. Over the years, smoking has increasingly been viewed negatively by society at-large for a variety of reasons.
The smell, the health consequences, and even the healthcare costs all combine to give traditional cigarettes a bad name these days. If you’re a smoker, you’ve certainly noticed an increasing amount of restrictions around where you can light up, even at private parties where the host is a nonsmoker.
Also, traditional cigarettes can have impacts on your social life, literally. Take dating for an example – it’s rare for a nonsmoker to be with a smoker. Also, smoking can also impact job prospects since more employers are taking a more critical eye toward traditional cigarettes.
As you can see, e-cigarettes and electronic smoking carry many benefits over traditional smoking. Many have discovered how they can still enjoy smoking and get the nicotine they crave without using methods that are increasingly seen as intrusive and irresponsible.
