There is no denying that vaping products are continually increasing in popularity and many who have smoked for years are putting down the tobacco and picking up an e-cigarette. These small battery-powered devices are considered to be better for your health and safer than smoking traditional cigarettes and it isn’t uncommon for people to use them when wanting to reduce the amount of nicotine they intake and stop smoking altogether.
When looking into e-cigarettes, it is likely that you will come across lots of controversial opinions about vaping in general and as you may expect, you will also be presented with quite a lot of incorrect information too. It is fair to say that many people don’t actually know much about e-cigarettes. To help inform anyone who is interested in learning more about e-cigarettes, our team at The Vape Life have put together 6 surprising facts you may not know.
E-cigarettes can be just as good for nicotine cravings
There is no denying that e-cigarettes can provide users with the amount of nicotine they require to curb their cravings. When you use a vape product, you are in full control over how much nicotine you intake and you’re able to adjust this over time. So, many actually end up being able to reduce the amount of nicotine they have on a daily basis with an e-cigarette.
E-cigarettes are tightly regulated for safety and quality
Here in Ireland, The Tobacco Products Directive requires all e-cigarettes and e-liquids be notified to HSE before they can even be sold. So, the people who worry about whether e-cigarettes are tightly regulated don’t really need to. They always have to meet minimum standards of quality and safety.
E-cigarettes tend to be more effective than patches or gum
Whilst there is controversy surrounding whether or not e-cigarettes are effective in helping people give up smoking, thousands of people have already stopped smoking with the help of an e-cigarette. In fact, many people find that they are actually more effective than other nicotine replacement products, such as patches or gum.
E-cigarettes don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide
There are many harmful elements in tobacco smoke and it is definitely worthwhile pointing out that e-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide which are two of the most harmful. Any chemicals that are in e-liquid or vapour which may potentially be harmful, are at much lower levels than they are in tobacco smoke.
E-cigarettes don’t produce ‘secondhand smoke’
Understandably, many people worry about secondhand smoke and this is one of the numerous reasons why people stop smoking cigarettes. Due to the fact that e-cigarettes don’t produce tobacco smoke, the risks of passive smoking don't apply. Research is ongoing, however, there is no evidence so far that vaping causes harm to other people around you.
E-cigarettes can be incredibly affordable
Sometimes, the initial cost of vaping products, especially the device you’re going to use, can be more expensive than tobacco products. However, over time, many find that e-cigarettes are a much more affordable alternative to tobacco cigarettes. When investing in a good e-cigarette/vaping device, it should last you a very long time and your only expense after this is eliquid & coil which is very cheap compare tobacco cigarettes.
Purchasing an e-cigarette
Hopefully, you will now know a little bit more about e-cigarettes and it is fair to say that you may be surprised by some of these facts. Remember, if you’re wanting to research into e-cigarettes further, ensure that you’re only taking information from reputable sources. You will find that many who don’t know much about vaping won’t actually provide you with correct ‘facts’ and more often than not, you will be presented with myths and misconceptions.
