Electronic cigarette sales are increasing every day and their increasing popularity is, in turn, promoting more and more interest in the product. Most smokers will now know someone who has tried an E Cig and many will have considered switching themselves. As an alternative to smoking, rather than a cessation aid, there are a number of benefits of changing over from traditional tobacco products. Financial benefits are often at the forefront of users minds but there are social and health benefits to consider as well.
Smokers tend to be very aware of the amount of money they spend on cigarettes each month and each year. With the cost of tobacco continually rising, the average pack-a-day smoker spends around 180 on cigarettes each month. When this sum is converted to the yearly figure of over two thousand pounds, it is clear why many people rely on financial motivation to change.
As electric cigarettes are reusable, the cost of using one is significantly lower than buying cigarettes. Whether you choose a disposable model or a rechargeable design you will save money in the long run with an electric cigarette.
Many smokers are also now feeling the full effect of the smoking ban and are beginning to realise that the amount of stigma now attached to this habit is increasing. Pubs and clubs become less attractive when you contemplate leaving your party every once in a while to stand at the door or on the street to smoke.
An electric cigarette emits only a harmless water vapour that is not considered under the smoking ban so changing will allow you to use the product even in indoor public spaces. As they do not emit smoke, E cigarettes also do not emit the smell often associated with smoking so are much more acceptable even in people’s homes.
