Why Make the Switch to E-Cigarettes

Cigarettes are bad, we all know that, but somehow a lot of us can’t stop smoking them … probably all the nicotine … Anyway, the nicotine isn’t so much of a problem, it’s all the extra stuff they pump into the cigarettes. Now, in a perfect world we could all just stop smoking, however that won’t happen anytime soon, so if you’re trying to quit or are just trying to get a little healthier, why not give e-cigarettes ago. Let me take you through some of the ways that they are better.


So Much Cooler than Normal Cigarettes

Before I move onto the health benefits, I just want to get this out of the way. They are so much cooler than cigarettes. They look like something from the future, especially if you try one of these electronic pipes from this online UK based vape shop. I didn’t even know such a thing existed, but look how cool they look. Also, e-cigs and e-pipes don’t fold in your pocket, the tobacco doesn’t fall out of them, and you can’t accidentally get them soggy so that they don’t light.

Second Hand Smoke

With normal cigarettes, second hand smoke is a massive concern, especially on small children and elderly people or anyone with a respiratory illness. However, the risks of second hand smoke from an e-cigarette are a lot less. They aren’t as dangerous; however I would still encourage caution about smoking them around children.




Now, e-cigarettes contain some of the nasty chemicals that plague cigarettes, however, they are found in much less quantities and concentrations and so are a hell of a lot less harmful to you and those around you.


I don’t need to tell you how much you spend on cigarettes as you probably think about it and cry when you’re home alone. Well, luckily e-cigarettes are a lot cheaper for you. After the initial purchase the vapour lasts a long time and doesn’t need to be refilled that much.

Smell Better

Gone are the days of the disgusting cigarette smell. You know that smell when you walk into someone’s house who doesn’t smoke outside. That smell that feels like it’s working its way into your skin. Yeah, that one. Well, luckily e-cigs don’t have that.

More Social

When you’re at a party with your friends or a dinner date, etc, you won’t have to leave the room and miss the fun because of your constant smoking. You can enjoy – with your hosts permission – the party and smoke to your heart’s content.

A Better You

There you go. That’s the benefits of switching to the e-cigarette. Now, they are still harmful, I’m not going to lie to you, but they are a lot better than what you’re choking back at the moment. They are brilliant if you are trying to give up smoking all together as they help take away the skin-crawling, totally distracting desire that can take hold. They are also excellent if you are just trying to make your body a little healthier.

If you’re trying to give up, good luck. You’re taking the right steps.
