Battle of the Cigs

Choice between cigarette and e-cigarette

Choice between cigarettes and e-cigarettes

A lot of people out there make choices based on what helps them the most, tangible or non-tangible choices. In the instance of smoking, many out there are noticing that there are numerous advantages of choosing electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices over traditional cigarettes. Because of this, you’re starting to see more people out there make the switch.

So what benefits are there, you might be wondering? Well, for starters…

Benefit #1: No Bad Odor

We’re all aware that traditional tobacco cigarettes leave behind a nasty odor that’s difficult to get away from. Your clothing, body, your house, you name it basically all smell like smoke. The reason behind that odor from that cigarette being smoked is the tobacco, along with the tar and other chemicals that disperse a pervasive smell when burned. On the flip side, with e-cigarettes, there’s absolutely no smoke. Instead, you are exhaling a vapor that dissipates quickly and leaves behind a tasty smell!

Benefit #2: Safety

Traditional cigarettes need a lighter to be used. Now, you may feel like you have a good grasp on fire safety, however, an open flame’s still threatening. It’s a regrettable wake-up call that smoking’s one of the leading causes of residential or total fire deaths in the United States. With e-cigarettes, you can safely vape, as it’s all electronic.

Benefit #3: Health

There’s continuous testing in reference to what the long-term health effects of electronic cigarettes frankly are. However, for the time being, research has shown that traditional cigarettes cause many illnesses and deaths on daily basis. This recent article by WebMD stated that “According to the U.S. Surgeon General, about 480,000 Americans die of smoking related causes each year, but that figure may be closer to 540,000, researchers from the American Cancer Society report.” With that said, it’s up to you which way you want to go when it comes to your health.

Benefit #4: Costs

The increase in tobacco taxes have really hit smokers hard over the past several years. So far, different types of vaping devices that’re out there aren’t taxed in the type of fashion traditional cigarettes are. Federal taxes on all types of tobacco products were raised from .39 cents a pack to $1.01 a pack back in 2009. On top of that, state taxes increase the cost per pack even more, not including the cost of lighters, ashtrays, etc. Fortunately, as a vaping user, you have the luxury of being able to choose different vaping devices that can last for a long time. With buying accessories, and especially different types of e-liquids, your switch in the long-run could become more cost effective.

These are just some of reasons why many people have already made the switch to vaping.
