Ditch the Fags Part 2: The Benefits of Vaping

Latest News

In this article, we provide you with some cold hard facts about vaping, explaining how it can be much more beneficial when compared to smoking cigarettes.  Although there is still little evidence regarding any long term negative effects of vapes, they are widely reported to be many, many times safer than cigarette or cigar smoking.

Here are some facts for you to consider when beginning your transition from ‘analogues’ to e-cigarettes…


Vaping replaces the mental addiction of smoking

One of the hardest things about giving up smoking is replacing the physical act of smoking a cigarette.  This is something that patches, gum, hypnotherapy, etc just can’t provide.  Using a vape, however, provides a similar hand-to-mouth action of smoking, thereby acting as a perfect substitute without the known long-term harm.


Vaping is cheaper than smoking cigarettes

With the price of 20 cigarettes increasing every year, smoking has become a very expensive habit.  Vaping, however, can be a lot easier on the wallet.  Yes, of course, you can get carried away with a vast juice collection and array of vaping devices, however, if the goal is to keep things simple, we offer extremely affordable starter vaping kits which are of course reusable – you just have to keep buying e-liquids and coils.  But even these are much cheaper when compared to cigarettes.

We recently conducted some research into exactly how much smokers can save if they switch to vaping – here are the results…

Smoking costs versus Vaping Costs - Save over £3,000 a year


Vaping works as an aid to give up smoking

A group of scientists from Queen Mary University’s Wolfson Institute of Preventative Medicine in London conducted a clinical trial where smokers trying to quit were given different selections of smoking cessation products.  The experiment lasted for a 90-days, and the results were then tracked for each participant for a full year.  What the scientists determined is that approximately 20% of the group using vapes were successful in remaining smoke-free for an entire 12-months.  Comparatively, only 8% of the three groups using more conventional nicotine replacement therapies exhibited similar rates of success.


Vaping is safer than cigarette smoking

It has widely been reported in the medical press, including the NHS and Public Health England, that vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking based on extensive research. Vaping does not involve any combustion, nor does it produce any tar, which are the main reasons for smoking cigarettes being so dangerous to health.  In addition to avoiding the fatal diseases associated with cigarette and cigar smoking, new vapers are likely to have improved oral hygiene, better skin, improved circulation, greater lung capacity and a better sense of smell and taste, when making the transition from analogue smoking.
