4 Reasons You Should Switch from Traditional Cigarettes to E-Cigs

Every time you reach for your pack of cigarettes, flip back the lid and put another cigarette between your lips, the thought goes through your head, “When am I going to make the move to e-cigs?” You may even think about it while you’re tapping your pockets, looking for that elusive lighter – the one that, half the time, you’ve left at home. As you saunter up to another smoker – the kind who are becoming harder and harder to find – in order to ask them for light, you think, “I’ll do it next month.” Well, forget about doing it next month. Here are four reasons you should make the switch today!

(1) Health

An obvious one, but worth repeating. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is the leading cause of preventable deaths. In the U.S. alone, combustible cigarettes cause 480,000 deaths each year, including over 41,000 resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. By contrast, e-cigs deliver nicotine without the thousands of toxic chemicals present in smoke, including tar.

(2) Money

Traditional cigarettes don’t come cheap. In the U.S., the average price of a pack ranges between $6 and $8, though in places like New York, it can cost up to $12.85. E-cigs, on the other hand, are significantly more affordable. Once you purchase your starter kit, you can start vaping with premium-quality e-liquids that cost as little as $9.99 for 120ML, saving you a lot of money over the long run!

(3) Smell

Some of you may be old enough to remember when the indoor smoking ban was introduced. As it turned out, lighting up in pubs and clubs left an unpleasant and unwanted smell on other people’s clothes, not to mention the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. According to a study conducted by the University of Victoria, vapor from e-cigs “is airborne for less than 30 seconds compared to 18 to 20 minutes for tobacco smoke, substantially reducing the time of second-hand exposure.

(4) Taste

Traditional cigarettes have their taste, granted, but often the taste is overwhelmed by the smell of smoke. Not only do e-cigs allow you to continue to enjoy the tobacco taste that you love without any of the deleterious effects of smoking, but they also give you a multitude of choices when it comes to other flavors such as dessert e-liquids, nut e-juices, and fruit vape juices.
