If you’re a regular smoker but are attracted to and have found yourself becoming interested in vaping, then you’ll have probably heard a good deal about it; mostly opinion-based, no doubt, and perhaps not based on facts. And probably not from anyone who knows vaping properly. Well, if all that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place to discover and explore the pros and cons of regular vaping…

The pros

  • Staying off the smelly ciggies – vaping may appear similar to tobacco smoking but it’s actually quite a different thing; smell’s just one, but a biggie, given smokers carry around with them all the time that smoky stink while, instead, vaper walk about with aromas like cinnamon buns, strawberries and cotton candy
  • Regaining your health – too often smoking, which is obviously incredibly bad for you in the first place, simply breeds behavior that makes you even less healthy; for instance, many smokers don’t exercise as much as they should because they become despondent about their health in general, which can bring on obesity, depression and other physical and mental health problems, yet vaping (95 percent less harmful to the body than smoking, according to Public Health England) can improve health (much less coughing and nausea and much improved energy levels, skin and circulation) and bring about a whole new mindset towards it
  • Saving cash – vaping need not be expensive at all; yes, it can become a hobby that you can spend money on but only if you want to as it’s cheap as chips to get started with at a simple, starter level with easy-to-use, inexpensive e-cig kits and, that said, once you’ve worked your way up to a vape mod (if you do), all you then have to fork out on is affordable e-juice and replaceable coils to achieve your perfect hits
  • Customisation – whatever the level of your experience as a vaper, you’re free to choose the nicotine level that suits you best (whether you’re a rookie who’s newly arrived from smoking, an intermediate or a seasoned e-cig user); just buy an e-juice with the most suitable nicotine volume for you a recommended outlet, like a vape shop London.

The cons

  • Dried-out mouth – so long as you stay hydrated, you’re unlikely to be afflicted (too badly) by a dried-out mouth from vaping, but it does happen
  • Dizziness – too much nicotine and you’re likely to suffer from dizziness, headaches, feeling flush or even feeling nauseous; that said, if you’re coming to vaping from smoking this should be something you’re already aware and you should know how to counter it… simply reduce your nicotine level (see above)
  • Allergies – should you be allergic to any nuts, any fruits or any kinds of chocolates, be sure to check the ingredients of any e-juice you’re thinking of purchasing before parting cash for it, as they can be used as flavourings for these fluids at trace level; if you’re aware that you’re allergic to either propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) be sure to choose an e-liquid that doesn’t containthe one your body rejects, as practically every e-juice will comprise one of these two chemicals (many comprise both)
  • Battery safety – technically speaking, there isn’t such thing as a battery that’s been specifically manufactured for popping into a vape pen, cigalike, vape mod or box mod and so used for vaping and yet the 18650 battery type is omnipresent in vaping devices and, yes, on occasions you hear of problems with these such batteries, but frankly that’s almost always because negligent vapers have misused these rechargeable batteries, sometimes resulting in injury; so don’t become a statistic and educate yourself how properly to recharge and, of course, use vape batteries!
