Three Top Reasons to Switch from Smoking to Vaping


There are many great reasons to quit smoking. Having more money, a lower risk of serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer, being able to breathe easier, reduced teeth staining, better skin, and getting rid of the smell of smoke from your clothes and hair are just some of the best reasons to ditch the cigarettes.

But quitting smoking is always much easier said than done. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, and in addition, smoking is a physical habit that often becomes deeply ingrained into a smoker’s life, making it even more difficult to give up. However, it’s never been easier to give up cigarettes – in the last few years, electronic cigarettes have rapidly risen in popularity as a healthier, cleaner alternative. Here are just some of the best reasons to switch to vaping from smoking.

Reason #1. Save Money

With a pack of cigarettes setting you back an average of around $10, the cost of being a smoker can quickly add up, leaving you with little money for saving or spending on other things that you enjoy. Imagine this – if you spend $10 per day on cigarettes, that’s a huge $3,650 that you could be spending on a luxury vacation, putting towards a new car, or treating yourself to a new wardrobe. Although vaping isn’t free, you can expect to spend significantly less on an e-cigarette kit and e-liquids.

Reason #2. Improve Your Health

Recent medical studies finally gave us the answers that we’ve been looking for about vaping – it is, indeed, safer than smoking standard cigarettes. During this study, participants who were former smokers switched to vaping. By the end, it was apparent that their risk of serious conditions associated with smoking had reduced when compared to participants who continued smoking cigarettes as normal. The vapor in e-cigarettes may contain some nicotine, but on its own, this substance is not dangerous. It is the carbon monoxide, tar, and other toxins in cigarettes that cause many health problems – none of these are present with vaping.

Reason #3. Vape (Almost) Anywhere

Even some heavy smokers don’t like to smoke indoors; it smells and second-hand smoke can be very dangerous to any family members or roommates living with them. So, rather than going outside in the cold every time they crave a smoke, switching to vaping could be the perfect solution. Since they only give off a water vapor, e-cigarettes are perfect for using indoors, as there’s no nasty smell or any need to use an ashtray. In fact, it’s quite the opposite – with so many fruity, sweet, and unusual flavors available to choose from when vaping, it can improve the aroma in the home!

In recent years, vaping has become one of the most popular nicotine replacement therapies to help smokers give up cigarettes. Since it is similar in many ways to the physical action of smoking, vaping is one of the most effortless ways to quit.
