I love writing opinion posts. It gives me an avenue to air my sometimes controversial views, and hear from others as well. The comments section on my opinion posts usually goes lit, which is always good. I learn from my readers and they learn from me, so it is a win-win situation regardless of how you see it. My opinion post today is all about the benefits of vaping and why e cigarettes are better than the regular cigarettes.
The vaping industry has recently explored with a variety of e-cigarettes available in different flavours and from many brands. Today, there is no need to put your health in harm’s way if you need to smoke (emphasis on the need). There are various alternatives available, so you can puff away without having to worry about tobacco dangers.
For those who are new to the vaping term, here is an easy definition for you by the guys at Quit Smoking Community –
“Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the water vapor produced by an electric device called vaporizer (or e-cigarette).”
If you are thinking of giving up smoking but struggling to quit, you could try vaping. Here are some of the benefits of Vaping for those who are contemplating quitting smoking but not aware of Vaping –
- Vaping is tobacco free and in some cases nicotine free.
- There is no harmful smoke. It is all vapour.
- No bad smell or breath. E-cigarettes smell much better, they usually have a sweet, fruity, or minty fragrance.
- There is a variety of e-cigarettes available in various flavours, so you have options.
- No need for dirty ashtrays or cigarette burns.
- E cigarettes are more economical than regular cigarettes in the long run.
- The chances of getting cancer and other smoke related illness are reduced with Vaping.
So is Vaping safe? Here are some answers from the professionals –
“Vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking.” Public Health England
Vaporizers are many times less harmful than traditional tobacco cigarettes, and Vaping can even help smokers quit. American Heart Association
The proven advantages of Vaping outweigh its “potential” harms. Vaporizers are the first genuinely new way of helping people quit smoking that we have seen in many years. Royal College of Physicians
I believe Vaping is a lot safer than regular smoking, and I think it is a great way to quit tobacco smoking.

I think smoking is awful and selfish as it affects everyone around. Vaping is a much better alternative and all smokers to move to it as a means to quit to better themselves, the environment and those around them. I recently wrote a couple of posts on why I think smoking is selfish (including myself as I was a smoker once!)
* ‘All smokers should move to it’
Yea I agree. Smoking is selfish.
didn’t know vaping had benefits
Yea many are not aware of the benefits for smokers struggling to quit.
Would be interested in 10 years time whether vaping is actually healthy. No one thought smoking was unhealthy 50 years ago.
Guess we have to wait and see. But as at today it is safer than smoking. I won’t say it is healthy but it serves the purpose for smokers struggling to quit smoking.
I don’t know anyone in my community who will say “vaping is healthy” most vapor contains nicotine and traces of the flavor, but there’s a unanimous vote that vaping is “healthier” or “safer” than smoking.
Think about it like nurses gloving up and putting on a face mask to help a sick patient. Their situation isn’t risk free, but it’s risk reduced because they took precautions.
I see what you mean. Thanks for stopping by.
It is 95% healthier. The reason they have knocked off 5% is to allow for what hasn’t been discovered yet in the long term, if there is anything to be discovered. Also cos people not using the equipment properly or/and buying cheap rubbish of them may have an accident with them.
The media have screamed they aren’t safe as people have accidents with them. What they don’t tell you is why! The person hasn’t used the correct plugs or batteries with them are the main reason for accidents. They leave them charging overnight under there pillow is another. I mean it’s going to overheat etc. You wouldnt leave your mobile charging overnight or the like, under your pillow and expect not to risk an accident.
Regarding health you dont get all the awful symptoms with vaping as you do with smoking and it doesn’t harm anyone else as it is a steam. Heated vapour/water.
Nicotine whilst addictive isn’t dangerous. Use the devices properly, buy from a reputable dealer and use reputable juice and it is does what it says it will. Worked for me for 5 years
I don’t plan on stopping it because I don’t want to to risk going back to smoking. I am not heavy on vaping. I know me. I wont take the risk. Also has stopped my husband and many friends too.
I did my research. I use a company called “Totally Wicked” who are available online as well as the high street. They are really good and helpful.
My partner vaped to get off normal cigarettes, best thing he’s ever done and I’m very proud of him
