E-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes are two very different things. We want to change the way people view vaping and e-cigarettes altogether. If you are getting into vaping, chances are you are currently or were previously a smoker of traditional cigarettes. Here are some clear benefits you’ll receive from making the switch to a much healthier smoking alternative!
#1: No distinctive odor
One of the many problems with traditional cigarettes is their distinctive odor. All the chemicals in cigarettes, combined with the tar and tobacco, make for a rather unpleasant odor. This stench tends to sink in and stay. There are countless products on the market to cover and mask tobacco odors, but e-cigarettes give an easy solution to avoiding all of this. Instead of exhaling smoke, you’re exhaling vapor that diminishes way faster and more completely than traditional tobacco cigarette smoke.
#2: E-cigarettes are cheaper than traditional cigarettes
While the initial cost of buying a vapor or e-cigarette kit may seem expensive to some, the cost in the long run is much cheaper than smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. A pack of traditional tobacco cigarettes costs a person anywhere from $7 to $12, depending where in the U.S you are buying them. For individuals who smoke a pack a day, that is nearly $300 a month! E-liquid and the e-cigarette kits are not taxed like tobacco products, making them much more affordable in the long-term.
#3: Not as many social restrictions
Most public places now have restrictions against smoking cigarettes, and for good reason. Second hand smoke from traditional cigarettes is a known cause of many health problems. E-cigarettes not only diminish the harm from second-hand smoke by e-liquid emitting vapor, e-cigarettes also have much fewer restrictions in public than traditional cigarettes. By switching to e-cigarettes you can enjoy vaping in almost any social setting!
#4: E-Cigarettes are a safer alternative for smoking than traditional cigarettes
While we can’t say that vaping is “completely safe”, we can say that smoking e-cigarettes is safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. According to Dr. Joel Nitzkin, Chair of the Tobacco Control Task Force for the American Association of Public Health Physicians, states that the hazards posed by e-cigarettes would be much lower than one percent of that posed by smoking tobacco cigarettes.
The proof is in the science. Traditional tobacco cigarettes include a laundry list of chemicals, many of which are carcinogens. E-cigarettes, on the other hand, only contain nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerol and flavoring chemicals, which are food grade and recognized as safe for ingestion. Very few carcinogenic chemicals are found in e-cigarettes and if they are, these chemicals are only found in trace amounts.
