10 Good Reasons To Switch To E-cigs
Electronic cigarettes have been taking the smoking world by storm… especially in the UK. Unlike traditional tobacco products, E-cigs can be freely advertised on TV, on billboards, and even online in the UK, which has led to a dramatic increase in users over the past few years. In 2013, global sales of electronic cigarettes reached an astounding £1.3 billion. As of today, there are about 1.5 million E-cig users in the UK!
But why do so many people choose to use E-cigs instead of regular tobacco-filled cigarettes? That is a great question, and in this article we are going to talk about 10 good reasons to do just that!
1… They Are Cheaper
E-cigs are definitely cheaper in the long run than analog cigarettes. Buying electronic cigarettes might be more expensive at first, since you have to buy chargers, cartridges, e-liquid, and batteries to get started… but in the long run, the only thing that you will have to buy to keep vaping is e-liquid, which is much less expensive than traditional cigarettes. E-cig users tend to spend about 70% less than analog cigarette users for the same amount of usage.
2… They Are Safer
Regular analog cigarettes produce dangerous fumes, toxins, and chemicals when the tobacco leaves are burnt. This can be a health risk to the smoker, and even to other people in the area (secondhand smoke!). E-cigs, however, contain no tobacco. They simply create a water vapour by atomizing an odorless e-liquid. This makes them a safer and cleaner option than tobacco-filled cigarettes.
3… They Do Not Create Second-Hand Smoke
The water vapour from E-cigs simply dissolves into the air when exhaled. This vapour is safer, cleaner, and won’t even bother others around you with the tobacco-odor associated with regular cigarette use (the vapour is odorless).
4… They Are Allowed Almost Everywhere
Are you tired of not being able to smoke in pubs and restaurants? Electronic cigarettes are allowed almost everywhere, including indoors where analog cigarettes can no longer be enjoyed. For social smokers, there is really no better option than E-cigs.
5… They Can Help You To Quit Your Tobacco Habit
E-cigs contain about as much nicotine as a regular cigarette, making them a great tool to utilize for people considering quitting the analog habit altogether. In fact, most E-cig brands carry flavours with different nicotine levels, allowing users to ‘scale down’ on their nicotine usage until they don’t even crave it anymore. Many specialists believe that E-cigs will make it much easier for smokers to leave tobacco behind, mostly because it offers a realistic alternative that doesn’t contain the same harmful chemicals and toxins found in tobacco products.
6… They Come In Many Different Flavours
Vaping definitely isn’t just about tobacco-flavoured products. Though tobacco flavoured e-liquid is probably the best selling type of e-liquid, there are many others to choose from. There are coffee flavours, fruit flavours, chocolate and vanilla flavours, and even energy-drink flavours. There are even E-cigs that deliver caffeine instead of nicotine, and that are flavoured to taste just like an energy drink!
7… There Are Different Types To Choose From
One great thing about E-cigs is that they offer different options for vapour production that are not available with tobacco-based products. Pipes, cigars, and cigarettes all work basically the same way… they burn tobacco to produce smoke. But since E-cigs create an atomized plume in a controlled environment, they can create the vapour to more exact specifications. Users who want more vapour, for example, can use a personal vaporizer with an adjustable voltage.
8… Vaping Will Not Slow You Down Like Cigarettes Will
Smokers cough and fatigue keeps a lot of smokers from doing the types of things that they want to do. Running, climbing, swimming, and other fun physical activities might be more difficult due to the effects that tobacco smoke has on the lungs, thereby keeping smokers from joining in on exciting opportunities or adventures that they might otherwise like to take part in. E-cigs, however, do not use the burning of tobacco leaves to deliver a nicotine hit. This allows smokers the same realistic experience without the smoker’s cough or fatigue to go along with it!
9… They Can Be Ordered Online
Buying electronic cigarettes is incredibly easy. You can simply order e-liquid online and have it delivered right to your door. No more going out late at night to pick up another package of those expensive cigarettes! Buying e-cigs is easy and hassle free.
10… They Can Be Enjoyed Guilt-Free
Electronic cigarettes offer a safer, cleaner alternative to analog cigarettes. They are also cheaper, create no second-hand smoke, and can be enjoyed anywhere.
When all of these things are combined, it becomes easy to see that E-cigs also offer something else… they offer a guilt-free experience. Have you ever felt guilty about having to go outside so that you wouldn’t have to smoke around your children? Have you ever felt bad about spending money on expensive cigarettes that you didn’t even really want to smoke? Have you ever wished that you didn’t have to put yourself at risk to get that little ‘pick me up’ that you get from the nicotine?
E-cigs offer a solution to all of these problems, and more. They are simply a better alternative. Of course, the safest and cleanest option is not to breathe in anything but clean air… but for many tobacco users, this is easier said than done. E-cigs can be a great way to bridge the gap between quitting tobacco and quitting the habit altogether by giving users an alternative that can still give them the pick-me-up without the harmful and dangerous toxins and carcinogens to go with it.
