Even though it has been in the news a lot in the past few years, vaping is really nothing new. People have been vaping for decades, but now the vaping industry is beginning to see the benefits of using the technology as a smoking cessation tool. Millions of people every year use vape pens, e-cigs, box mods, and other mechanical mods to quit smoking once and for all. But even if you don’t have a strong desire to kick the habit, vaping offers lots of other cool side effects that smoking tobacco just can’t provide. In no particular order, here are the top ten benefits of vaping.
1. Save money!
Holy cow! Have you seen the price of a pack of cigarettes lately? Even if you happen to live in a tobacco-friendly state like Virginia, they now cost about $6.50 a pack. If you live in New York, expect to pay at least double that price. For about the price of a pack of cigarettes, you can buy an entire bottle of e-juice that will last perhaps a month or longer, depending on your vaping habits.
2. Increased Energy!
Once you kick the habit and start vaping, within on a couple of days newbies usually begin to feel a light burst of energy. The longer you vape eliquids and stay off the tobacco, the more that this energy increase tends to rise. The reason is mainly due to tobacco cigarettes being laced with about 1000 different toxic chemicals. Since the vapor from vaping devices in almost 99.9% water, you feel more energized as those toxins begin to flush from your body.
3. Better Concentration!
These same toxic chemicals also tend to produce a numbing effect on the brain, which leads to poor concentration and even memory loss. Studies show that employees who smoke tend to be less productive at work, too.These statistics stem from a couple of likely causes, one of which being the constant need for 10-minute smoke breaks every hour or so, but the other is the hundreds of brain-numbing chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes.
4. No More Dirty Ashtrays!
This may seem very minor, but wouldn’t it be nice to never worry again about dirty ashtrays in your home or car? You could welcome uninvited guests into your house without having to be embarrassed about the odor and grey ash that seems to create a filmy substance over every surface. You could offer to drive your friends to social events without having them turn up their noses at the stench of your smoke-filled car!
