When you are looking to make the switch into vaping, there are going to be countless things that you hear from everyone. Whether good or bad, you are bound to have some preconceived ideas about vaping. What we do not want to see is someone who disregards vaping because of the wrong reasons.
That is why we have been working on this series of blog posts to get you the truth about vaping. We hear it every day. People come into the shop and are confused because they are hearing so many negative things from the media. We find it strange that it is the same people in the media who have been saying for decades that we all need to quit smoking, but now that people are trying to quit, they are fighting one of the best tools that we have to help us quit.
This is why we have this fantastic list of ten reasons why vaping is better than smoking.
1. Smell is a fantastic thing to have.
Smelling great is something that we all try to achieve every day. We hope in the shower and use fancy soaps that smell good. Get out put a little perfume on and some deodorant, just to keep that scent all day long. Yet, then we go and light a cigarette and it destroys everything we just did.
For many people, when they are around people who don’t smoke, they worried that they stank of cigarettes. Going to give your boyfriend a hug, and worried what he was thinking? Or maybe it was every time you hugged your parents. It definitely was a huge burden of anxiety for many people.
Not only that, but smoking can destroy your sense of smell, as research way back in 1990 showed. They showed that it can take as many years as you smoke to fully regain it, but when you quit, you can definitely start to see all that there is a huge difference between what you can smell now and what you couldn’t then.
2. You get to taste things as they were meant to be tasted.
Once you make the shift to vaping, within less than a week, you start to get your taste back. It is an amazing thing to have happen to you. You love coffee when you smoked? Well you haven’t tasted anything until after you quit. It becomes even more amazing! Everything you put into your mouth begins to take on new flavors.
Every time you light up, your taste buds are getting weaker. Your ability to perceive bitter is getting beat up. It’s not that you are killing all your taste buds, just that they are not doing their job to the best of their ability. Don’t hate on your taste buds.
3. In the long run, it’s cheaper.
When you first start vaping, you may see the price of some of the mods as ridiculous. What you don’t understand yet, is that those devices will help you destroy your addiction. It is what is going to keep you from being a slave to the cigarettes for the rest of your life. As you take on the addiction, you slowly step your nicotine levels down until you are at zero and that is when you lay the vape down. You have your life back and that is the whole point of this thing.
Not only are you not paying out every single day for a pack of smokes, but your long term health is helped. You don’t have to worry about the long term health effects of being a smoker, because you will be a non-smoker. Your health insurance will go down in a year after you quit because you are less of a risk as well.
4. Heart disease? High Blood Pressure? Maybe not.
One of those great benefits of quitting smoking is you that all these things start to happen as soon as you point down that cigarette.
5. You get to choose what flavor you vape on.
What flavors do you get with cigarettes? Menthol or non-Menthol. They all will pretty much taste close to the same. What is amazing about vape is if you dream it up, it can usually be made. Want key lime cheesecake? Well you can get that. You got a hankering for candy canes? You might just like some Just Claus.
It really is that awesome. You can vape on pretty close to anything that you want and get the nicotine that you need to help you continue on your path of quitting.
6. Vape disappears, smoke lingers.
Worries about second hand smoke are real and have been shown by science to be a danger to all those around them. But that is another difference between vaping and smoking. Second hand smoke has been shown to linger in the air for about 20 minutes before dissipating completely. Initial studies have shown that it can take as little as 11 seconds before vapor dissipates.
Now that is an initial study and more research needs to be done, but as you can see from this study, any trace amounts of chemicals in exhaled vapor is negligible compared to second hand smoke. It is very telling that the difference is so stark.
7. Tired of being shunned? Try Vaping
The vaping community is one of the most inclusive groups to come around. They have a great desire to help each other quit smoking and to fight for their right to vape. Heck there is even a political party of vapers in England trying to get elected to help fight to keep vaping alive in the marketplace.
Vapers will are very accommodating to new vapers. If you have questions, you never have to hesitate to ask because they are more than willing to share the knowledge that they have accumulated. It is very important to them that you understand what you are getting into. Many people do not know what the right terms, or what they are looking at. Any shop that is worth your time will spend the time for you to understand things like this. They will teach you what you need to know to be a successful vaper.

8. Breathing is really amazing.
When you quit smoking an amazing thing starts to happen; you start to the process of clearing your lungs out. No longer are you putting tar into your body. Your body will start to heal itself and you will notice that you may have to expel quite a bit of it. This is normal and in no way should discourage you from vaping. You are beginning to heal and this is a necessary function to get past cigarettes.
What you will notice with time is that you will begin to be able to do your day to day activities with more energy. You will not be out of breath trying to do things like walk up a short flight of steps. If you are an active person, everything becomes easier when you can actually breathe. It makes you want to go do things. Life becomes a much healthier place when you are not actively destroying yourself on an hourly basis.
9. Trying to quit nicotine altogether? Vaping is the way to do it.
Vaping was created to quit cigarettes. It is the whole point of what we are doing. Helping people get their freedom back is very important to us. That is why if you want to get nicotine out of your life, we have a plan to do that.
When you start vaping, you will usually have a higher content of nicotine in your juice than you want. That is to help control the urges that you will experience when you switch. You are quitting thousands of chemicals at the same time, but the most important one that you have to control is the nicotine. It can make or break your attempt to quit.
This is the number one reason why vaping is the ultimate tool in achieving the quit. It allows you to quit all of the chemicals in cigarettes except nicotine, and then you follow a step by step plan of lowering your nicotine content until you no longer need to vape. It is set up for you to achieve greatness.
10. Vaping has only 4 ingredients as opposed to 4,000 chemicals.
Nicotine, vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, and flavoring (aka e liquid, vape juice, e juice); it is that simple. Those ingredients are all you need to beat the cigarette out of your life. Your smokes have not only been giving you the nicotine you are craving but they also have additives that are only there to help you stay addicted to them.
Three of e liquids are found in many of the foods that you eat on a daily basis, and it is being found that nicotine may not be as harmful as once thought, but only if given in a form that is not bad for you.
