Vaping has taken the world by storm. What started as a niche alternative to smoking has rapidly developed over the last several years into a lifestyle choice. Vaping offers many benefits over smoking cigarettes. It has been hailed by some as one of the greatest breakthroughs ever in medical science when one considers the number of smoking related deaths that will be avoided.
Switching from tobacco to an e-cigarette carries numerous benefits beyond the health considerations. In fact, many smokers are unaware of a number of the different side effects smoking tobacco can cause.
You Can Vape Almost Anywhere
While restrictions can vary between different countries regarding exactly where one can and can’t smoke tobacco or e-cigarettes, there are certainly a lot more places that allow the latter. Vaping doesn’t carry the same risks as smoking does for those around you; inhaling second hand vapour isn’t harmful, whereas inhaling second hand tobacco smoke is still very bad for you. There are a few places that treat vaping the same as smoking and have banned it in public, but these are few and far between. There is also a more positive perception of vaping socially and this makes people less resistant and confrontational around it.
A Diverse Range of Flavours
You can buy e liquids from a number of different places and in an almost endless array of different flavours, for example you can get this custard e liquid flavour which any vapers love. Especially once you factor in that you can take individual flavours and mix them in whatever manner your heart desires.
Improve Your Sense of Smell
One of the less appreciated side effects of smoking tobacco is that it dramatically impairs your ability to smell. This is a gradual process and so light smokers might be less affected, but regular smokers will experience a gradual reduction in their ability to smell. This process is sometimes slow enough that it doesn’t register with the smoker until they try to quit.
Improve Your Sense of Taste
Taste and smell are both very closely linked, so it is no surprise that as well as dampening your sense of smell, smoking also impairs your taste buds. One of the things you will notice if you switch to vaping is that at first you will barely be able to taste the vapour if you were a heavy smoker. However, as your senses of taste and smell return, you will find it becoming more and more noticeable.
This is another one of the big selling points of vaping; it works out much cheaper than a smoking habit. A good vaporiser will cost you more than a pack of cigarettes will but the e liquids themselves work out cheaper and last longer (depending on usage of course).
Control Your Nicotine Intake
Vaping allows you to precisely calculate your nicotine intake and e liquids come in different forms with varying concentrations of nicotine. This is very helpful for those looking to cut down and, ultimately, transition to nicotine-free liquids.
While the vapour you exhale will smell, the vapour will not stick to fabrics, such as clothes, in the way that smoke does, this means that you won’t end your vaping session with an odour clinging to you.
Vapour is a lot gentler on your throat and lungs. Inhaling smoke causes a rapid accumulation of tar and other substances, which can make breathing difficult and cause other respiratory issues. These issues don’t exist for vaporisers.
Switching to a vaporiser is a great way of weaning yourself off cigarettes and also offers the opportunity to eventually transition to nicotine-free vaping solutions.
