Vaping is a practice that is generally new when compared to the centuries’ old tradition of smoking. Because of this, a common question is whether this technology (Electronic Cigarettes) has become the better form of smoking. The majority of people who vape are ex smokers who do so because they still want to smoke, but would like to do so safer. This technology, though not fully researched, has markers that show it as less harmful than smoking. Being less harmful means that vaping is still a harmful practice which may lead to health complications; therefore, when you decide to vape, you are doing so at your own risk. The reasons outlined below are the sole opinion of the writer, and they do not represent iVape.Sydney’s view on vaping. In a world-class city like Sydney, vaping is recommended as a better choice for the benefit of the one vaping and those around them.
- You Inhale Much Less Smoke When Vaping Than When Smoking
When vaping, processes involved in smoking such as combustion which leads to ash and tar are not present. Therefore, there are generally fewer contaminants and the smoke you inhale does not contain these proven contaminants. There is a consensus that vaping has harmful contaminants, but because vaping is still relatively a new practice, there is not enough evidence to support these claims. What can be confirmed is the fact that smoking cigarettes has been proven to be detrimental, and it is on this basis that I believe you are in a far better position when vaping.
- Vaping Is Not Accompanied By Obnoxious Odours
One major drawback of smoking is the unpleasant smell that comes with it. This can lead to stigmatisation practices against smokers. When Vaping, you will not face a problem with bad smell. Instead, you may receive compliments due to the flavoured aromas that come out of your vape. It must also be stated that the smell of the vapor goes mainly unnoticed. The bad smells associated with smoking cigarettes are the reason you have had to alienate yourself from the world even hours after having a smoke, and vaping sure makes a suitable alternative.
- When Vaping, You Have More Control Over The Amount You Inhale and Exhale.
Because you can get e-juice in differing strengths, you are able to control the amount of nicotine in your vape. This means you have full power over how much nicotine intake you are having. This kind of power and control also means the level of toxins in your system due to vaping can be PRE determined by the smoker, and can be adjusted as per medical advice and self preferences. Having this kind of control is a sure way to conclude that Vaping is a better alternative to smoking.
Whilst vaping has been in existence for a time ‘relatively short’ to have conclusive scientific studies, it is generally a better option to smoking. However, with all its advantages over smoking, you are still advised to seek medical advice when intending to quit smoking for other alternatives that may be available.
*Vaping may be as harmful to your health as tobacco cigarettes, please conduct your own research and vape at your own risk.
