Build your career without sacrificing your life.
It’s all over the internet, and if you haven’t heard about it yet, you’ve probably been living under a rock. It’s the latest nicotine craze, and it’s called “vaping”. As you might imagine, many people start vaping in an effort to quit smoking. Basically, vaping (using an e-cigarette) provides the user with all the endorphins of nicotine, without the tar and other harsh chemicals that you’ll find in cigarettes. Now, let me say before I go any further that more research is needed to determine the long-term effects of vaping and e-cigarette use. Currently, researchers aren’t certain whether vaping is a safe alternative, or just the lesser of the two evils. Either way, there are some clear benefits that can be established by picking up the practice, especially if you’re a former smoker. Today, I’ve decided to provide my readers with some of these benefits, because honestly, my boyfriend vapes every single day, and he asked me to write this post. I agreed, because I’ve been doing some of my own research, anyway, out of concern for his wellbeing. We’ve put our heads together and decided that it’s time to de-stigmatize the e-cigarettes and the individuals that choose to use them.
Vaping hasn’t been shown to put the user at risk for cancer.
Or heart attacks, for that matter. It’s common knowledge that smoking regular cigarettes poses both of these risks. However, vaping doesn’t expose the individual to the same dangerous toxins as cigarette smoke, and therefore doesn’t produce the same results. So, if you’re worried that you, your lover, your child, or another friend or family member are going to contract cancer or heart disease, or even a number of other deadly diseases, you should probably stop being such a worry-wort. The stress you’re putting yourself under is actually putting you at greater risk for heart problems than your vaping counterparts. A study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, back in early 2015 that painted a frightening picture of vaping…however, it wasn’t entirely accurate. You see, the study stated that once vapers reach a certain temperature (in voltage) they’ll start inhaling a chemical known as Formaldehyde. This is a very dangerous chemical to the human body, found in some plastics. What the Journal failed to mention is that many people fail to ever vape at such as high temperature, because they dislike the flavor of what is known as a “burnt hit”, and in turn, prefer to keep their voltage below the dangerous 5 voltage mark.
Vaporizers are less available than cigarettes.
That statement may sound annoying to the seasoned vaper that’s looking to stock up on their favorite products, however it is music to the ears of a mother or father that’s concerned about their child becoming hooked on nicotine at an early age. Vape supplies are generally easy to find online, but you’ll need to be over 18 on some sites, and over 21 on others. Unless your child is using your I.D. or a fake I.D., issues unrelated to vaping, they’re very unlikely to obtain all the equipment that they’ll need to become an avid user. I know this is true from experience, as a few months ago, I set out to buy my boyfriend a collection of vape juices for his birthday. The choices were scarce and the options were slim. Although, as vaping is likely to become more widely accepted as more is learned about it in the coming years, this truth will most likely change.
Vaping will make your pocketbook smile.
Yes, you read that correctly. The biggest argument against smoking traditional cigarettes, and probably the biggest incentive for users to quit is the realization that if they’re a pack-a-day smoker, they’re spending around $300 a month on cigarettes. However, if they’re an everyday vaper, they’re only going to be spending (at the MOST) $250 on their mod, one time, and then all they’ll have to buy is their favorite vape juice from then on out. Since you’re probably wondering, yes, the vape juices come at a very reasonable price. At certain online shops, you can find a 32ml bottle of vape juice for $5.50. If you use about 8ml of juice per day (which the average vape user does), then you’re using about 7 bottles per month, or close to $40 per month! In my opinion, that’s much more reasonable than the average $150-$300 a month that a regular smoker would be spending.

Vaping won’t make you smell like burnt rubber.
It will make you smell more like the dream-land in the Shark Boy and Lava Girl film. (If you’re too old to know what I’m talking about, click here. I won’t tell anyone.) Marshmallows, chocolates, raspberries, and sweet custard…vaping acts more like a cologne than burning stick of paper and tar. (Although, I don’t suggest you use it as your actual cologne. I mean…hygiene, people.) If you’re worried that you’ll smell too much like you just jumped out of the latest episode of Care Bears, just pick a flavor like Mt. Dew or Root Beer. Nobody is going to just you for smelling like a soda pop, no matter how manly you are. Unless of course, they’re a health nut. I suggest you avoid those, anyway. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
You can do cool tricks.
Sure, puffing away on those famous cancer sticks makes you look like a cast member from a John Wayne movie (not exactly), but the billows of smoke that are produced by vaporizers are much cooler. Just think, all those tricks you learned to do back in college with you Devil’s lettuce smoke? Yeah, you can pull those old tricks out and dust them off, but now you can show them off legally. Trap the smoke in a bottle, blow rings out of your mouth, force it out of your nose, or blow us all away and figure out how to make it escape your ears. Whatever your trick is, vaping will give you sufficient smoke to pull it off.
So, I’m not saying everyone should go pick up a vape machine. After all, the practice is addictive. I’m just saying that anyone who comes off their rocker at the thought of a loved one vaping, or sees it as some sort of evil practice should probably chill. If you vape responsibly, you should be fine, according to current research. If you don’t…well…don’t say I didn’t warn you.
