Why Vaping is Better Than Smoking!

Vaping vs Smoking: Why Vaping is a Better Alternative!

Cigarette smoking has been a popular habit for many years, but its negative effects on health are undeniable. The rise of vaping as a viable alternative has given smokers a new way to indulge in nicotine without the harmful effects of traditional cigarettes. But many still question whether vaping is better than traditional cigarettes and in this Blog we’ll lay out the proven reasons for why it’s a much better alternative and what sorts of devices and liquids best suit those making the transition.

  1. Health Benefits

The most significant advantage of vaping is that it's a healthier option than smoking traditional cigarettes. Smoking is known to cause a host of health problems, including lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke. On the other hand, vaping doesn't involve the combustion of tobacco, which is the leading cause of the negative health effects associated with smoking.

Instead vaping involves heating e-liquids that contain nicotine, flavourings, and other additives to create an aerosol, which is inhaled by the user. Although the long-term effects of vaping are still being studied, it's widely accepted that vaping is less harmful than smoking. In fact, Public Health England has estimated that vaping is around 95% healthier than smoking.

  1. More Flavour Options

Smoking traditional cigarettes is limited to the flavour of tobacco. Vaping, on the other hand, offers a wide range of flavour options to choose from. Vaping enthusiasts can enjoy different flavours like fruit, mint, and even dessert-inspired flavours like donut or cheesecake. The wide variety of flavours available makes vaping a more enjoyable experience than smoking traditional cigarettes. See our full catalogue of liquids and juices by CLICKING HERE.

  1. No Lingering Smell

One of the most significant downsides of smoking is the lingering smell that it leaves on clothes, hair, and the surrounding environment. This smell can be unpleasant and offensive to non-smokers. Vaping, on the other hand, doesn't leave a lingering smell. The aerosol produced by vaping quickly dissipates into the air, leaving no trace behind. This makes vaping a more convenient option for those who don't want to bother others with the smell of smoke.

  1. Cheaper and More Affordable

Smoking traditional cigarettes can be an expensive habit, with prices rising steadily over the years. Vaping, on the other hand, is a more cost-effective option. Although the initial cost of a vaping device may be higher, the cost of e-liquids is significantly lower than that of traditional cigarettes. In the long run, vaping can save smokers a considerable amount of money. In fact, studies have shown that vaping can save smokers up to 90% of the cost of smoking traditional cigarettes.

  1. No Second-hand Smoke

Smoking traditional cigarettes not only affects the smoker but also those around them. Second-hand smoke can be harmful to non-smokers and can cause health problems like lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke. Vaping, on the other hand, doesn't produce second-hand smoke. The aerosol produced by vaping is mostly water vapor, which is harmless to those around the vaper. This makes vaping a more considerate option for those who don't want to harm others with second-hand smoke.

What are the best liquids/vape juice for beginners?

Vape Juice comes in all types of shapes sizes and strengths. Before buying you want to make sure of three key things, these are Nicotine Strength, Consistency, and Flavour.

  1. Flavour: The flavour is undoubtedly the most noticeable aspect of vaping. However, it's important to note that, unlike traditional cigarettes, vape liquids or juices come in a variety of flavours. If you enjoy the taste of tobacco, you can choose a tobacco liquid, but if you prefer a fruity flavour, go for something like mango. Check out our complete selection of liquids by CLICKING HERE.
  1. Nicotine Strength: Vape juices are available in various nicotine strengths, which can sometimes be confusing to navigate. To make things easier, think of every 1mg of nicotine in vape liquid as equivalent to smoking one cigarette per day. So, if you typically smoke 10 cigarettes a day, a 10mg vape liquid would be ideal to satisfy your nicotine cravings.
  1. Consistency: Vape liquids are also available in different consistencies. Starter kit liquids, which you can view by CLICKING HERE, usually have a 50/50 PG/VG ratio. On the other hand, liquids for more advanced kits, that produce bigger clouds, which you can also view by CLICKING HERE, typically have a 70/30 or 80/20 PG/VG ratio.

A few of our favourite vape juice brands include:
