Many smokers start smoking from their teenage years, mainly due to peer pressure and got hooked. I know many smokers today, who started smoking in high school just because everyone else was smoking and they wanted to feel cool. Many years down the line, they realise the damage they are doing to their health, and try to quit smoking but find themselves struggling.
I recently came across this infographic by Aquavape, all about people’s top flavours, the percentage of people who switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping, and how many people believe it is healthier. This infographic came about as a result of a survey recently carried out by Aquavape, and I found the results very interesting.
Like I mentioned in my previous vaping posts, smoking e cigs/ e cigarettes is healthier than smoking tobacco cigarettes and it is a great way to quit smoking altogether.
I first heard about Vaping some years ago, and I had the opportunity to review some e cigs/e cigarettes. I found the idea of vaping very interesting and useful for those struggling to quit tobacco smoking. Most smokers know the damage smoking tobacco cigarettes does to their body, but they are unable to stop for various reasons. This is where e cigarettes come in. They are a great way to help with the nicotine cravings and carry a fraction of the risk of tobacco cigarettes. So smoking e-cigarettes is a great way to quit smoking eventually, and it is even backed by the NHS Stoptober Quit Smoking Campaign for the first time this year, which is fantastic news for millions of people.
Reasons to Quit Smoking
To Improve your health
Smoking tobacco cigarettes can do a lot damage to your lungs. This damage can lead to life threatening diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer. The best time to stop is now. So if you are struggling to quit smoking, you should research vaping/e cigs to see if that is your best alternative.
To save money
Tobacco smoking can be very expensive. You could save around £250 a day if you were smoking a packet a day. That is money you can put to good use.
To protect your loved ones
Quitting smoking can help protect your loved ones from harmful secondhand smoke. This would reduce their risk of developing asthma, meningitis, cancer and other secondhand smoke related diseases.
To smell good
If you smoke or you know anyone that does, you would know all about the concentrated smell of cigarettes that just does not go away. It stays on their clothes, bags, shoes, anything and everything. This may sound vain but it bothers me a lot. If you are a regular reader of Fashion and Style Police, you would know all about how I like to smell good. I even a whole post on how to get rid of body odour. So you know how important good smells are to me. I guess this is also another good thing about vaping, since e cigs come in various nice smelling flavours.
Are you trying to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes? How are you finding it? Have you tried e cigarettes?
