9 Reasons to Switch from Smoking to Vaping in 2021
by Aaron Cadena on Jan 08, 2021
If one of your resolutions for 2021 is to quit smoking, vaping could be a great option to consider.
In today's article, we'll be breaking down 10 compelling reasons to switch from smoking to vaping in 2021 (or anytime really).
Quitting smoking tobacco, whether you use hookah tobacco or traditional cigarettes, is hard. Many smokers fail early on and fail several times too before they successfully manage to ditch the habit. Nicotine replacement products are one option, as is switching from smoking to vaping.
While it would be irresponsible to say that vaping is risk-free, it is more than a fair bet that it is less hazardous to your health than smoking, which is just one of the many reasons to consider switching from smoking to vaping.
If you're considering switching from smoking to vaping in 2021, here are 10 compelling reasons to make the switch!
1. Improved Lung Health
Everyone knows cigarettes are filled with nasty chemicals such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, aluminum, and many others. All of these things lace your lungs and airways, clogging them, triggering a constant inflammatory response, and making it hard to get oxygen into your bloodstream. Blood/oxygen level is a primary indicator of good health, and people who smoke have bad blood/oxygen saturation. Poor blood/oxygen saturation is a condition that leads to other diseases by hindering immune response, slowing healing, and reducing metabolic rates. By vaping, yes you are still putting a foreign substance into your lungs. But it is far less toxic than cigarette soot and it’s much easier for your body to eliminate it than it is to eliminate the waste from cigarettes.
2. Improved Heart Health
In addition to improved lung health, switching from smoking to vaping can also help smokers improve the health of their hearts within just weeks according to a recent, groundbreaking study published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology.
While vaping is not risk-free, smoking doubles the risk of having a heart attack, and stopping smoking is the single most effective thing smokers can do to help improve their heart health. To that end, vaping can help to provide smokers an option to do just that.
3. Savor the Flavor
There are several categories of vape juice flavorings from sweet, to savory, and everything in between. There are also many, many flavor choices within those categories. There are tens, if not hundreds, of fruit flavors. There are coffee, chocolate, and candy flavors. There are woody, smoky, and other more sultry flavors and aromas. Everyone has their favorite, and there is no doubt you’ll find a flavor that you like much better than the flavor of hot smoke.
4. Superior Convenience
Using a vaporizer couldn’t be easier once it is set up. Sure, you do have to clean it occasionally, replace parts once in a while, and refill it. But these things are not hard to do and you can do these chores while watching television most of the time. But once you get your unit running, using it is just a matter of pressing the button and taking a toke. You can enjoy a puff almost anywhere, with some limitations so as not to be rude. Also, because it’s less offensive than smoking, you can do it in more places.
5. No More Stinky Clothes
Some people who smoke enjoy the smell of cigarette smoke. Most don’t, and few people who don’t smoke describe the smell as “dirty ashtray smell.” There’s nothing sexy about that. Vaping, on the other hand, smells any way you want it to smell. It can smell like fruit, flowers, candy. It can even smell like tobacco without the dirty odor that cigarettes create.
6. Get Hep to the Times, Man
If trends mean anything to you, then it will make sense that smoking is just not the hip thing to do anymore. It doesn’t have the same mystique it once had, and people tend to associate it with stinky old card rooms. If smoking has lost its cool factor in your mind, that’s one less reason to keep doing it and try something new and exciting.
7. Do Less Harm to Yourself and Others
If you have been smoking for many years, we think you’re probably going to notice that you can breathe easier after you switch to vaping. Not only that, but your indoor pets will feel better without breathing cigarette smoke all day. Most importantly, if you have children, they will see you as an example of someone who stopped smoking rather than as a smoker.
8. Vaping Can Be Enjoyed without Nicotine
Possibly the coolest thing when considering the pros and cons of cigarettes vs vaping is the fact that you can vape nicotine-free if you want to. You will probably have to ween yourself off of it over time, but it’s much easier to do than just quitting smoking cold turkey. With vaping, the nicotine is optional. With smoking, you get nicotine whether you like it or not.
9. Connect with Vapers and other Ex-Smokers
At the end of the day, there are no comparing cigarettes vs e-cigarettes, and people in the vaping community know it.
When you get involved in this hobby it will give you a chance to meet new people. You’ll learn new things, and have instant conversation starters with anyone who shares the hobby with you. With smoking, having one in your hand was always a prerequisite of many social occasions. That’s a big part of why it’s so hard to quit. We’ll with vaping, there’s the same social comfort of having something to do with your hands, but it’s far less toxic.
10. Vaping Makes Quitting Smoking Easier
Finally, vaping makes ditching your smokes less difficult.
Perhaps second only to sugar, nicotine is one of the most addictive drugs on earth. When delivered in tobacco smoke, it’s even more addictive. By vaping, you won’t suffer cravings. Simply vape when you want to. After a while, smoking will just seem silly. If you try to quit smoking cold turkey, the chances are overwhelmingly against you. Not so with vaping. The fact is that vaping has made it possible for more people than ever to quit smoking. That’s why the tobacco lobby is trying to demonize the hobby by over-blowing every scary vape-related news story they can find.
