It’s not easy to quit smoking cold turkey. According to the American Cancer Society, only about 4% to 7% of people are able to quit smoking without medicines.
However, many who have tried quitting with patches and nicotine gum are finding a solution in vaping.
Over the last few years, vaping, vape pens, and e-cigarettes have become immensely popular. So popular, that Oxford Dictionary actually named “vape” the word of the year in 2014. Many smokers are putting down their cigarettes (potentially for good) in exchange for this healthier alternative, so here we’ll talk about why, if you’ve ever considered quitting, you should pick up a vape pen today.
It’s a Simple Alternative
“Vaping” is similar to smoking, but instead of inhaling the smoke filled with cancer-causing toxins to get your hit of nicotine, you inhale vapor through an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or vaporizer. A vaporizer is essentially a battery-powered device that converts liquid nicotine into a vapor. You’re not actually “smoking,” because there is no “smoke” involved.
Those who have traded in their traditional cigarettes for e-cigarettes have reported overall better health, easier breathing, and better sleeping as a result.
Unlike smoking cigarettes, vaping doesn’t leave behind a smoky, pungent smell that stains the air (and your clothes). Vaping avoids the “second hand smoke” effect, since it only involves fine vapor that immediately disperses into thin air when exhaled.
Because vaporizers don’t contain all the dangerous carcinogenic chemicals found in cigarettes, they’re considered a safer, cleaner alternative to smoking. With this thought in mind, vape users are finding solace in the use of this alternative.
... And a Lower Level of Harmful Chemicals
Tests show that the levels of chemicals that e-cigarettes give off are much lower than what you’d get from a real cigarette. In fact, when using vape pens, you actually have the choice between nicotine or non-nicotine juice blends. Additionally, if you fill your vape pen with a nicotine blend, you can actually control the level of nicotine to where you want it, unlike a normal cigarette. There’s no tar in e-cigarettes, whereas smoking anything with fire will produce a thick byproduct of tar.
If you were to blow cigarette smoke out on a napkin, it would turn yellow instantly, but with vapor, it will remain white. Less harm to your lungs, less harm to your whole body.
You Can Control Your Level of Nicotine
Nicotine travels through the e-liquid, (also known as e-juice) which comes in an array of flavors. When the user inhales the vapor, he or she also inhales the odorless nicotine. However, some e-cigarettes don’t have nicotine, so essentially, you are inhaling odorless, tasteless, flavorless vapor.
As a smoker, think of all the chemicals you’re putting into your body, the amount of money you’re spending, and the harm of secondhand smoke you are placing on others. Vaping, on the other hand, can feel like smoking without the adverse health effects, the secondhand smoke, and the added expenses.
So, put down the nicotine gum, throw away your patch, and give vaping a try.
