vape pens

Vaping is a trend that is growing rapidly in popularity with more and more people jumping on the bandwagon and deciding that it might be a good lifestyle choice for them. Curious what exactly vaping is? Vaping is when you inhale and exhale the vapors from a vape pen, which is actually truly an aerosol. This aerosol, unlike a traditional cigarette, does not create tobacco smoke, so vaping is generally accepted to be a better alternative than smoking.

So why do people decide to start vaping? There are a few reasons that always seem to be cited when people are asked. They are as follows:

  • Vaping is better for me than smoking- Studies show that traditional cigarettes contain about 5000 different chemicals where as the liquid in vape tanks has only about five. While there are still issues with vaping, it is arguably a much cleaner substance to inhale when compared with traditional tobacco cigarettes.
  • I am trying to quit smoking or lower my dependence on cigarettes- A lot of people come to find vaping after they decide that they no longer want to smoke traditional cigarettes. Many find it difficult to quit smoking cold turkey, so vaping is a good way to still get the benefits they felt they were getting from smoking but without many of the added negative side effects.
  • I have a lot of anxiety and stress- Many people have found that vaping can help manage the symptoms of anxiety and will often use a vaporizer pen with the goal of calming down and being able to better cope with stressful situations.
  • Vaping is cheaper than smoking traditional cigarettes- Purchasing potentially multiple packs of cigarettes a week can get expensive quickly while buying a vaporizer will save money in the long run. How is that the case? It is because a vaporizer can be recharged over and over again and the liquid you buy to use with the atomizer generally takes longer to get through. Because you can recharge the vape pen, you are saving money. When added up, vaping can save someone a few thousand dollars a year when compared to how much is spent to smoke traditional cigarettes.
  • Vaping helps with my oral fixation- Some people start smoking because they like to  be doing things with their mouths as often as possible. Smoking traditional cigarettes, however, is bad for your health and that is where vaping comes into play. Those with an oral fixation can vape instead of smoke traditional cigarettes and it will allow them to alleviate the oral fixation while also protecting themselves from the harmful features of traditional cigarettes.

As vaping continues to grow in popularity, so too will the list of reasons for why people decide to start adding vaping into their lifestyle. So far it has been a helpful way for smokers to transition away from traditional cigarettes and to find alternatives to the habits that have controlled them. Vaping continues to be a better choice for health reasons than traditional smoking and is doing a lot of good in the ways it is helping people reduce their dependence on tobacco cigarettes.
