It’s healthier, safer, regulated, and it doesn’t contain nicotine. These are just a few reasons why you should vape instead of smoke. But let’s check them all!
So there you are. Still smoking cigarettes. Still hating yourself for doing so. Trying to rationalize why all those proven health hazards to cigarettes don’t apply to you. And still refusing to listen to your family’s and friends’ pleas to stop smoking for your own good.
Gets old, doesn’t it? Besides which, how long can you go on trying to maintain an untenable position?
Here are the top seven reasons why you should vape instead of smoke.
Why Should You Vape Instead Of Smoke?
Here are 7 reasons that can (and should) make you quit smoking and try a healthier habit – vaping.
1. Vaping Is Healthier For You
Everyone knows how dangerous cigarette smoking is to your health. And yet, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 38 million American adults still smoke.
Studies both here and abroad, however, have shown that vaping is considerably more healthy for you than cigarette smoking.
2. Vaping Is Regulated
Since 2009, the Food and Drug Administration has had the power and authority to regulate the manufacturing, distribution, marketing, and labeling of all tobacco products, including, as of last year, e-cigarettes and vaping systems.
Even FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb defends the safety of e-cigarettes.
3. Vape Juice Is Safe
Vape juice refers to the liquid inside an e-cigarette or other vapor-based nicotine delivery system that produces the vapor you ultimately “smoke.”
And what does vape juice contain? Only the following:
- Vegetable glycerin (VG);
- Propylene glycol (PG);
- Nicotine in the stated level, including no nicotine whatsoever;
- Food grade flavoring.
4. You Can Choose Nicotine-Free Vape Juice
Even though e-cigarettes and other vaping systems were developed as nicotine delivery systems, it may surprise you to learn that you can choose completely nicotine-free vape juice for yours.
Yes, you heard right. You can enjoy the vaping experience without having to inhale or ingest any nicotine whatsoever.
Admittedly, most vapers choose vape juice containing 25 mg or 50 mg of nicotine, but the choice is entirely up to you.
5. Vape Juice Tastes Better Than Cigarettes
You will be astonished at how many different flavors of vape juice you can purchase. Here are just a few:
- Blue Raspberry Lemonade;
- Carrot Cake;
- Fruit Punch;
- Green Apple;
- Iced Green Apple;
- Strawberry Acai;
- Iced Honey Dew;
- Fresh Pineapple;
- Iced Juicy Watermelon;
- Strawberry Kiwi;
- Iced Red Mango;
- Georgia Peach;
- Iced Winter Green;
- Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie;
- Sweet Caramel Tobacco.
6. Vaping Systems Come In All Types
You have a plethora of choices when it comes to the vaping system you use. Some are simple; others are quite complex.
Some come prepackaged right off the shelf; others come as a DIY system that you construct yourself after buying the parts you need or want.
In all likelihood, though, your vaping system will include some or all of the following components:
- Cartomizer and clearomizer;
- Digital display or lights to adjust settings;
- Drip tip;
- Glass or plastic vial container of e-liquid;
- Programmable software;
- Tank system.
7. You Can Vape In Most Nonsmoking Areas
Other than your own home and car, where do you go these days to smoke a cigarette? Unfortunately for you, your choices diminish on an almost daily basis.
You certainly can’t smoke in your office. Or on a plane or in an airport. Can’t smoke in a restaurant or bar. Or probably even in your favorite open-air sports stadium.
No, as a smoker, you’ve become a societal pariah. People can insult you at will whenever and wherever you light up. After all, anti-smoking is thoroughly politically correct.
But if you vape instead of smoke, you and your e-cigarette or vaping system of choice are exempt from most smoking bans. Ah, the immense relief of that!
All in all, vaping gives you an outstanding alternative to smoking and one that will improve your health in the process. This is why you should vape instead of smoke!
