In the last few years vaping has soared in popularity. Go to any bar or public place and you're likely to see somebody enjoying an e-cigarrette or using a vaping kit. Many think of it as a healthier alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, and while that is most certainly true there's more to vaping the meets the eye. From straightforward vaping pens to highly modded kits that produce dense clouds and allow sub-ohm vaping, there's a lot going on in the vaping community and 2017 is a great time to join in.
If you're curious about vaping but aren't yet ready to take the final step, here are some benefits of vaping that you might not have considered.
Vaping is more affordable than smoking
Once you've bought your base vaping kit, replenishing the e-juice is a great deal cheaper than repeatedly buying packet of cigarrettes. To give you some perspective, around $40 worth of cigarettes will grant you around 550 puffs on average, whereas $40 worth of e-juice will grant over 2,000 puffs. What's more, you can buy e-juice online from a variety of outlets and most vape kits you buy online will come with an exclusive e-juice offer to help get you started. If you have the time and feel like experimenting, you can even make your own vape juice.
Get more variety with vaping
Smokers are creatures of habit, but vaping is different. Those who make the switch from smoking to vaping will tell you just how different the the two are in terms of choice, variety and experience. You can get e-juice tailored to your needs, including different flavours and varying nicotine strengths. You can even go nicotine free if you feel like it. There are too many combinations of flavours to list, but just about anything you can dream up can be turned into a vape juice, and you smoke cigarettes you'll finally be able to shake off that tobacco musk that follows you around and leave the chewing gum at home.
Vaping is better for the environment
Compared to cigarettes, vaping procudes very little waste. There are no stubs to put out and no ashtrays needed, and evidence is mounting that vape emmissions are less harmful to others around you. Across the world, it is estimated that 766 million kilos of cigarette butts end up as litter each year, and more than 540 million trees are used to create papers, filters and packaging for cigarettes. If you're a smoker, perhaps it's time to do your bit for the environment and pick up a vaping kit...
Yes, it's better for you than smoking
Vaping is widely considered to be better for your health than smoking cigarettes. In fact, Public Health England concluded that vaping devices are around 95% less harmful than tobacco. Some worry that vaping acts a 'gateway into smoking' for youngsters, but an increasing amount of evidence is actually showing the opposite to be true, with more and more people choosing to vape as the benefits are made clear.
How to get into vaping
If you're keen to explore the world of vaping but you're not sure where to begin, vape starter kits are an excellent place to start. Kits come in a range of shapes and sizes, all with their own distinct advantages and styles. They're relatively inexpensive and you'll get everything you need to get started (apart from the e-juice which is usually bought separetly).
