Is Vaping Better Than Smoking?

Smoking-vs-Vaping

Smoking is bad for your health as the toxins produced by burning tobacco cause smoking-related illnesses.

The majority of health benefits are seen when you stop smoking completely. Some people find cutting down as a helpful step to quitting, but stopping smoking completely should be the end goal.

Vaping is not harmless, but it is much less harmful than smoking.

There is now a general agreement that vaping use exposes the user to fewer toxicants than smoking tobacco cigarettes.

The healthiest option is not to vape or smoke. Don’t vape if you don’t smoke. Only vape to quit smoking.

Smoking and vaping both deliver nicotine.

The difference is cigarettes deliver it by burning tobacco, which creates many harmful toxins. Vaping delivers nicotine in e-liquid, which is a much less harmful way.

In smoking, the amount of nicotine in cigarettes is generally fixed, and how much you get depends on how you smoke. In vaping, the amount of nicotine depends on the strength of e-liquid you choose, and how you vape.

Benefits of Vaping

1)  It’s safer than smoking - The British Royal College of Physicians and Public Health England, and American National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, all agree that vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes. PHE says vaping is "at least 95% less harmful". Because there is no combustion in vaping, there is no smoke, and smoke is what creates the tar and carbon monoxide that lead to most of the long-term health damage from smoking. The health benefits of being smoke-free include improved lung and heart function, and even better senses of smell and taste.

2) No noxious odorsOne of the biggest advantages of vaping is that you and your clothes, house and car won’t smell of smoke anymore. Vaping has an aroma, but it’s a long way from the smell of stale smoke and cigarette butts. In fact, even tobacco-flavored vapes don’t smell anything like burning tobacco.

3) Control over nicotine intake - Vaping gives you full control over your nicotine dosage. E-juice is available in a variety of different strengths, ranging from nicotine-free to high-strength nicotine. You can choose exactly how much nicotine is in your vape - or use nicotine at all

4) Control over vapor output - Vaping gives you control over the amount of vapor you exhale, which is a major part of the experience. Some vapers prefer smaller devices like pod vapes for convenience and low vapor volume, and others like high-powered mods for cloud chasing Adjusting the power output, airflow, and coil type lets you further fine tune your vapor volume, which affects the flavor too.

5) Flavours for every palate - There are virtually endless flavor options to choose from in e-juice. Some of the most popular flavor categories are fruit, desserts, beverages, mint and menthol, and tobacco. 

6) Price points for every wallet -  The vaping market is large and competitive. There are lots of products in every price range—from 10 dollars to hundreds—that can suit almost any user. Whether you want a simple disposable e-cig, or a sophisticated vape mod and premium e-liquid; there’s a vape out there that you can start using today.
