We have received many questions from a lot of you recently asking about what vaping is like, and whether or not you should start. In terms of whether or not you should start vaping, this is something which we cannot advise you about, and a decision which you will have to make on your own. There are however hundreds of thousands of people around the world who do enjoy using these products.
Another popular question which we are asked is whether vaping nicotine is the same as smoking. In terms of vape juice nicotine is often part of the product, and whilst there may be similarities, it is most certainly not the same as smoking, and here is why.
Reduction of Harmful Chemicals
The reason why governments around the world are trying to get people to stop smoking is that the cigarette packs a whole host of toxic chemicals and carcinogens which cause all kinds of damage to the human body. Whilst nicotine is the addictive substance in the cigarette, the reality is that on its own, it is no more harmful than that. And so whilst vape juices may feature nicotine, they do not have the volume of carbon monoxide or harmful chemicals which a cigarette does.
Cost of Vaping
Another clear difference which we see when we weigh up these two options is the cost of each. As governments try to dissuade people from smoking they have pumped the price right up. In contrast a vape pen and liquid will cost you less than a packet of cigarettes, and they will last almost 10 times as long, depending on how heavily you vape. This has been one of the main factors as to why so many people have switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping.
Smell of Smoking
Another great benefit which those who vape enjoy, is that they are able to do so without causing a stink. One of the reasons why so many people cannot stand cigarette smokers is the smell, both of the smoke itself and then the smell on the person who has just finished a cigarette. When you vape there is a feint smell of the flavor and then it disappears just as quickly as it arrived. This is by far and away one of the biggest benefits of vaping over smoking cigarettes.
Where You Can Enjoy The Experience
As each day passes more and more locations are making smokers travel pretty far to enjoy their cigarette, which again is to protect noon-smokers and to try and discourage smokers from their habit. Vaping however, is far more accessible and whilst you may not always be able to vape indoors, nobody has any restrictions on you vaping outdoors. This again has been something which has seen many people who smoked cigarettes, make that switch and begin to vape instead.
As you can see, there are some similarities between vaping and smoking, but in the main the two are very different indeed.
