Many of us have heard of e-cigarettes and know the very basics of them, but why are more and more smokers switching to them? Today we are going to talk about 5 different benefits of choosing e-cigs over regular cigarettes.
1. No Odor
If you are a smoker or have been around someone that smokes, you know that regular cigarettes have a very distinctive odor. If you are a smoker you probably don’t notice this smell anymore because your body has become used to it, but others do smell it. The smell of cigarettes is not the most pleasant and the scent is hard to get out of your clothes. It clings to your hair, car, clothes, and hands, basically everywhere this smell follows you around. E-cigarettes are a great alternative because they do not produce a bad odor, and most don’t have a smell at all. If there is a smell from your e-cigarette it’s usually a sweet smell, like cotton candy.
2. Cost Comparison
Smokers know that cigarettes are most certainly not cheap and depending on how much you smoke, it can cost you thousands of dollars every year. Today the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is from $4-$12 all depending on what state you live in. E-cigarettes are much cheaper in comparison to traditional cigarettes. The only time when you will need to shell out a larger amount is the initial cost of the starter kit. E-cigarettes are not required to have any sort of special tax added to them, which drops the price of month-to-month cost drastically.
3. Safety Concerns
Did you know that cigarettes are the #1 cause of fire-related deaths in the United States? Cigarettes are not only harmful when smoking, but they present a fire hazard every time you light up! E-cigarettes do not use an open flame and there is no actual smoke with them. No more accidently dropping them and burning objects or yourself. E-cigarettes are much safer when compared to a traditional cigarette.
4. Health Concerns
We all know that smoking is very bad for your health, but still a large portion of the population chooses to smoke anyway. We can’t make claims that e-cigarettes are healthier but we can tell you how harmful cigarettes are to your health. Cigarettes can cause many diseases such as, lung cancer, throat cancer, and can cause stroke, heart attack, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and many more ailments. Many people say they feel much better after switching to e-cigarettes and they can even be used as a way to quit smoking altogether.
5. Social Benefits
Smokers are generally looked down upon by those who do not smoke because of the safety concerns with second-hand smoke around others. There are now many restrictions for smokers on where they are allowed to smoke because of the harmful effects on the body. With e-cigarettes you will not be putting others in danger of second-hand smoke because there is no smoke, just vapor. While you can enjoy the nicotine others will be able to stay around you without having to risk their health in the process.
