Reasons to Quit Smoking

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?

The Benefits of Vaping

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  –

 

  1. Vaping is tobacco free and in some cases nicotine free.
  2. There is no harmful smoke. It is all vapour.
  3. No bad smell or breath. E-cigarettes smell much better, they usually have a sweet, fruity, or minty fragrance.
  4. There is a variety of e-cigarettes available in various flavours, so you have options.
  5. No need for dirty ashtrays or cigarette burns.
  6. E cigarettes are more economical than regular cigarettes in the long run.
  7. 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.

Review & Giveaway – VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers

vitastik-picture

 

I have had my eye on VITASTIK Vitamin and Essential Oils Diffusers for a while now. I previously reviewed some VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers some months ago. I reviewed the Energize, Grace, Refresh, Calm and Relax flavours, and I must confess, I was blown away by how amazing they were. It is indeed the Holy-Grail of Vaping and Diffusing. So when I had another opportunity to review the new flavours, I grabbed the offer with both hands.

The science behind these VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers is simple – a Smoke-Free, Nicotine-Free, PG-Free and Diacetyl-Free, Organic Based Product. The first and only product (at the time of writing) that can boast of all these in the market today. And made from something we use everyday, something that makes up over 60% of the human body and over 90% of plants….WATER! It is a healthy way to vape, which is how the brand got the “If you wouldn’t Eat it, then you shouldn’t Vape it !” motto from.

Here are my thoughts:

  2. I like the variety of flavours. There is a flavour for everyone.
