Why vaping is better for you than smoking

Why vaping is better for you than smoking

Many people, when considering giving up smoking, would rather aim to be completely nicotine-free. But the truth is that quitting smoking without finding an alternative is very difficult indeed, and while most people start with the very best intentions it’s not long before they find themselves back on the cigarettes again.

For this reason, vaping is the very best alternative there is to kick the habit for good, and people have a far better success rate when they make the switch.

Public Health England (PHE) has now written seven reports on vaping in England, and their latest one concluded that vaping is far safer than smoking for many reasons. Here are some top stats!

  1. Vapes are the most popular aid to stop smoking (27.2%).
  2. In 2017, more than approximately 50,000 people in England managed to stop smoking with the aid of an e-cigarette.

  3. In 2019 and 2020, quit success rates were between 59.7% and 64% using a vape.

  4. Around 6% of adults regularly use vapes, which adds up to around 2.7 million adult vapers in England. This has had a positive effect on driving down numbers of people still smoking, and the pattern is expected to continue.

The report is a long one, but it takes a very in-depth look at vaping and it’s worth reading if you’re not completely convinced yet. PHE is unequivocal in their advice that smokers are far better off switching to vaping than continuing to smoke tobacco.

The government’s goal is to be smoke-free by 2030, and they have been considering ways in which to achieve this goal. Vaping plays a really important part in this.

When weighing up the pros and cons of quitting smoking, it’s important to bear in mind the very alarming statistic that smoking killed almost 75,000 people in England alone in 2019, and it continues to be the leading preventable cause of premature death. While people may be concerned that vaping still carries some risk, there is no doubt that it is a safer choice than smoking.

Those with the best possible chance of success in giving up smoking have done two things: firstly, they have switched to a vape, and secondly, they have sought support from a local stop smoking service.

If you’re thinking of making the switch to vaping rather than smoking tobacco, visit your local vape store. They will be able to show you the different types of e-cigarettes and help you choose one that suits your needs. They’ll advise you on flavours and nicotine strengths, and they’ll always be there to help support you through your quitting journey. Every high street has one, so go and support them.
