Eight Facts About Vaping
1. It Is Less Harmful Than Smoking!
Vapes do not rely on combustion, unlike cigarettes, so they are safer and lack the carcinogenic properties of cigarettes. There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, cigarettes create more than 7,000 chemicals.
Globally, tobacco is thought to cause the deaths of over 8 million people every single year, the single biggest preventable cause of death.
E-cigarettes do not contain the toxic and dangerous chemicals present in cigarettes and are free from tar and carbon monoxide.
Over the past few years, health bodies such as Public Health England have been advocates of the vaping industry, stating that e-cigarettes are “95% less harmful to health than smoking”.
2. E-Liquids Are Available In A Range Of Flavours
One of the biggest vaping pros is the wide range of e-liquid flavours on the market, with over 7000 choices for you to select. Whatever your preference, it's easy to find a flavour to suit your tastes.
Whatever tickles your fancy, there'll be an e-liquid for you. Popular e-liquid flavour profiles include: fruity, desserts, tobacco, sweets & treats and much more.
Even better, if you're a former menthol cigarette smoker, then mint & menthol e-liquids are perfect for you. Not only do you get the delicious minty flavour that you're used to, you also efficiently satisfy your nicotine cravings.
So say goodbye to stale tobacco tastes and open a whole new world of opportunity.
3. Vaping Saves You Money
With the average cost of a pack of cigarettes on the rise, vaping will put significantly less strain on your wallet, whether you're a light or heavy smoker.
According to statistics, the average cost of a packet of 20 cigarettes is approximately £9.91, and steadily becoming more expensive. So, if you're smoking 10-20 cigarettes a day, or even less, that's a significant chunk of money.
In stark contrast, you can grab yourself a bottle of e-liquid from as little as £1.75. A bottle of e-liquid can also last you much longer, depending on your vaping frequency.
Even better, you don't have to commit to a set amount of e-liquid like you do with cigarettes. E-liquids are available in 10ml bottles all the way up to 200ml. So you can experiment and choose what suits you best.
4. Vapour Doesn't Leave a Lingering Odour
Smoking is infamous for its lingering and unpleasant odours, that stick to walls, furniture, clothes and just about everything else.
The vapour produced by e-liquid vapour not only smells pleasant, but also dissipates quickly, meaning the light scent doesn't hang around for long.
Not only is this great for the vaper (say goodbye to cigarette breath), but also a bonus for those around you.
Best of all, with the range of e-liquid flavours on offer, you can really find a flavour that smells and tastes good, giving you the best of both worlds.
5. Vaping Is An Effective Way To Quit Smoking
The proof is in the pudding with this one, and over the years vaping has consistently helped smokers kick the habit and quit for good.
According to Public Health England, “An estimated 2.9 million adults in Great Britain currently use e-cigarettes, and of these, 1.5 million people have completely stopped smoking cigarettes”.
Studies have also found that vaping is the most popular form of smoking cessation, overtaking nicotine replacement therapies, such as Nicotine Patches.
6. Control Over Nicotine Intake
Controlling your nicotine intake is a crucial part of giving up smoking, and where e-cigarettes and cigarettes differ.
The average cigarette contains between 6mg and 12mg of nicotine, dependant on the brand. This leaves little room for you to choose how much nicotine you are ingesting each day.
On the other hand, e-liquids are available in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg and sometimes even higher with certain brands. As a quitter, this allows you to slowly reduce your nicotine intake, until you're finally at 0mg and completely smoke-free.
7. Products For All Budgets
The fantastic thing about vaping is that there is a vape kit to suit every budget.
Whether you want to dip your toes in the water with a more modest device, or go all out and grab a super fancy e-cigarette, you'll easily find exactly what you want.
For example, for smokers looking to take their first step into vaping, there are a range of starter vape kits at modest prices to choose from.
ULTD Salts Puff Bars are a great entry point, and you can grab 3 for £10, with each providing up to 300 puffs. A no-brainer.
If you've been around the vaping scene for long enough and want to really start testing the waters, then a more advanced vape kit is the choice for you.
8. Vaping Products Are Regulated
In many countries, vaping is controlled and regulated to ensure its safety and compliance.
Particularly in the UK, we have a very strict and meticulous regulation programme that ensures the safety of each and every vaping product.
The TPD law implemented in the UK restricts the capacity of e-liquid bottles and the nicotine content. At TPD levels, research suggests the nicotine in e-liquid doesn’t carry any significant danger for vapers.
Here at Vape Shop a host of our e-liquids are manufactured in a state-of-the-art labs and are fully approved by the MHRA.
So, you can rest assured that when you make the switch from smoking to vaping, you're in safe hands.
