My husband has recently started vaping after being introduced to the new habit by his closest friend. I have found that he also enjoys his newfound habit very much and he prefers it to smoking since he claims that it is much healthier than smoking cigars. Previously, I did not have any experience with vaping until my husband recently started vaping. I was therefore very eager to learn more about vaping, and so I did some online research on the same.
Here are some of the reasons I found as to why many people are now enjoying vaping and why it can be considered a much healthier option.
It is a healthier way of getting your nicotine fix
Vaping can be likened with taking a fresh drink of water when you are very thirsty. This is the major reason why many people have resulted to vaping. Although vaping has not been proven to help people quit smoking, they have been proven to be a safer alternative of getting your nicotine fix.
The e-juices contain lower amounts of nicotine and unlike the traditional cigars that contain thousands of carcinogens, the e-juices contain healthier ingredients. A vaper can also choose the amount of nicotine he wants to ingest unlike in the traditional cigarettes where he does not have control over what he takes in.
There is less exposure to chemicals
The traditional tobacco cigarettes have been proven to contain thousands of chemicals with more than 60 of them being toxic and can cause cancer. These chemicals have adverse effects on the smoker’s health and many have even lost their lives courtesy of smoking. Vaping, on the other hand, contains only four chemicals since most of the vaping substances are derived from natural sources.
There is no foul odor
One of the most irritating things with the traditional cigarettes is the foul odor they produce. It is even more irritating since the smoke stays for a very long time without fading away and anything they lay their hands on starts smelling of tobacco and tar.
Vaping, on the contrary, does not involve any combustion of chemicals and therefore no offensive odors are emitted. The smoke that is produced during vaping remains in the air for only a short while and in most cases, the smell is sweet since many e-liquids are flavored.
Vaping is eco-friendlier
Vaping does not produce toxic smoke or leave behind ashes. It does not involve lighting up like cigarettes and thus it there are no vaping related fires. This makes them kinder to the environment unlike the traditional cigarettes that release toxins to the environment through smoke and they are non-biodegradable.
No secondhand smoke
Smoking traditional cigarettes not only affects the person involved, but it also affects even the people around them through the smoke. The others who are not smoking are referred to as the secondary smokers since they inhale the smoke involuntarily.
This second-hand smoke also contains dangerous toxins that have the same adverse effects on the secondary smoker just as they do on the primary smoker, which is very unfair to non-smokers. Vaping, on the other hand, does not generate second-hand smoke, which does not put at risk the health of the people around the vaper.
