The e-cigarette has started a real revolution for ex-smokers all across the globe and some of them have become true enthusiasts in what these devices are concerned. However, for other people, e-cigs still represent uncharted territory and although they would like to give vaping a shoot, they are unsure about the positive effects these devices have on their overall quality of life. So let’s talk a bit about the pros of making the switch to electronic cigarettes.
- E-cigarettes will help you save money
While around $50 for a starter kit may seem like a big investment at the beginning, in one year’s time you’ll end up with a lot more money in your pocket. And, if not your pocket – because we know that not all people are very keen on putting some money aside, then spent on much healthier stuff. With the average price for a pack of tobacco cigarettes in the U.S. hovering around $6, smoking is an expensive habit that will eat a nice big hole in your bank account. Assuming you smoke just a pack a day, you will end up spending $2,190 on cigarettes alone. This however does not include the cost of higher healthcare premiums, respiratory illness, and other additional costs.
A year’s supply of e-cigarettes will add up to $540, saving you about $1600 from the start. This translates into about $4.4 each day you can spend on various types of products or activities with your loved ones.
- E-cigarettes are better for your health
The most common reason why smokers want to get rid of their nasty habit is health related. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cigarette smoking causes nearly half a million deaths in the U.S. each year, which translates into roughly 1 out 5 deaths due to the over 4,000 chemicals found in burning tobacco smoke. Since ecigs are smoke-free, they do not contain the same cancer-causing chemicals found in their tobacco counterparts and allows vapers to enjoy unadulterated nicotine without the price of their health.
- Electronic cigarettes don’t cause burnt holes
You can always tell if someone is a smoker only by looking at his or her clothes, furniture and inside their car. Rogue burning embers and cherries will fall off their cigarettes and create burns. Thankfully, this problem does not apply with e-cigs, as they don’t create enough heat to produce a fire.
- E-cigs have a lot more flavors options
While traditional cigarettes mostly come in two distinct flavors: tobacco and menthol, their electronic counterparts have an endless number of aromas. From the traditional taste to gourmet flavors, they are the delight of all vapers’ taste buds.
- E-cigarettes can be used in more places
Since ecigs don’t produce actual smoke they can be used in many places where smoking is banned, like some bars and restaurants. They can also be enjoyed in the house, without any second-hand smoke to affect your kids or pets.
