Breaking the Habit: 5 Great Reasons to Quit Smoking and Start Vaping

Smoking has been proven to be one of the hardest addictions for anyone to kick. Even though it’s completely legal, it is dangerous to your health in a plethora of ways. In the United States alone, over 480,000 people die each year from smoking. Instead of becoming one of those statistics, find out why you should quit smoking and start vaping right now.

Breaking the Habit: 5 Great Reasons to Quit Smoking and Start Vaping

Money in the Bank

Cigarettes are somewhere around $8 a pack these days, and that price is only going to continue to rise. If you smoke a pack a day, that is almost $3,000 a year you are burning up. Heavy smokers could be spending even more than that. E-cigarettes are a lot cheaper and it’s reported that on average, a vaper spends around $118.05 per month on supplies. That’s around half of the cost! Think of what you could do with all that extra money.

Social Stigma

You have probably been outside smoking at some point, and one of your friends or a family member moved away from you the second that you lit up. It most likely made you feel sorry for a second, but your craving for that cigarette was greater than caring what they thought. Vaping is pretty much odorless, and it’s a lot cleaner. It’s more widely accepted, and you will get a warmer acceptance from those that you surround yourself with.

No More Smoke Breaks!

Unless you’re sitting around doing absolutely nothing with your life, you’re busy most of the time. You could be at one of your kid’s basketball games, having dinner with your sister, or just trying to complete a task. Then, the craving hits. You have to stop whatever you are doing and go outside to have a cigarette. You’re missing out on a lot in that few minutes whether you want to believe it or not. When you’re vaping, you can take a hit off it in most public places, and nobody is going to say anything. You won’t miss a beat.

Returning Senses

Every single time you light up a cigarette, you are masking your senses of smell and taste. You are polluting your body with harmful chemicals in about the most concentrated way possible. So, when someone asks you how something smells or tastes, chances are, it is all the same to you. After switching to e-cigs, those will come back and be normal again. You’re going to realize what you were missing out on, and you won’t want to go back to cigarettes.

Being Healthier

Besides the obvious reasons why vaping is better for your body, it’s also going to give you more energy. You won’t feel tired and worn out all the time. With that boost in motivation, you will automatically want to make better eating and exercise choices for a healthier all-around lifestyle.

Put together these five reasons for quitting smoking and switching to vaping and what do you have? More self-confidence and a better future for yourself and your family. What more could you ask for?
