Smoking Vs Vaping: Why the Time Is Right to Ditch the Habit

by | Feb 16, 2017 | Insurance

It is no secret that smoking is on its way out. True, it has been around for hundreds of years, but the truth of the matter is that it is a disgusting habit that kills hundreds of thousands of people each year in the US alone. This is why E-cig health insurance is still so expensive. As far as many companies are concerned, vaping is still smoking. This is not the case, though, and here are a few reasons to switch to vaping over smoking.

No Toxins

The biggest killers from smoking are carbon monoxide and tar from the smoke. The carbon monoxide will build up in the blood and deprive your body of oxygen. This can lead to you feeling tired or lethargic a lot. Tar, on the other hand, builds up in the lungs and is what causes you to have breathing problems as well as other negative health impacts of smoking.

Socially Acceptable

Vaping, largely thanks to Millennials advocating for it, is largely socially acceptable. This is because, unlike smoking, it does not leave an unpleasant odor and will not stain fabrics. There is also no risk of starting a fire with a vape, unlike a cigarette. Thanks to this acceptance many businesses will not confront you for vaping even if it is technically again policy.


One of the reasons vaping is socially acceptable is the fact that it is a clean alternative. Smoking leaves a very strong, very unpleasant smell. It also can cause a buildup of tar over time. Anyone who has lived in a house with heavy smokers and white cabinets knows this all too well. Vaping, however, leaves none of this. Vaping simply produces a water vapor that will dissipate quickly. It will also not leave a smell in most cases. When it does, the smell is usually fruity or sweet, so it is a pleasant smell, unlike cigarette smoke.

There are many reasons to switch from smoking to vaping, but the most important reason is your health. Vaping will allow you to still get nicotine and the sensation of inhaling it to relax but without the increased risk of health problems.
