Today, we will be discussing why every mum should keep a vape pen in her bag. You may find this article particularly useful if you are a mum who smokes or has a history with smoking.
What Is a Vape Pen?
Before we delve into why you should consider using a vape pen. Firstly, let’s discuss what they are. A vape pen is an electronic device that heats a liquid containing flavour and nicotine. The resulting vapour is inhaled by the person using the pen and it’s through the vapour that you get the nicotine you want. Vaping has become a popular lifestyle choice for many. Now, it is estimated that there are around 2.7 million vapers in the UK alone. But why? Vaping has a number of attractive benefits. Let’s discuss some of them below.
Helps You Ditch Bad Habits
Although this rule doesn’t apply to everyone it is an important one to mention. Using a vape pen instead of a cigarette can help you to ditch the habit. It has been suggested that vaping is substantially better for your health when compared to smoking. For many, switching to a vape pen has been an effective quitting aid. Those that have swapped cigarettes for vape pens are expected to see an improvement in their health. Some can enjoy health benefits such as lower blood pressure, improved immune function and easier breathing.
There Is a Lot of Choice
Over the years, vaping has significantly grown in popularity. Compared to a few years ago, there are now hundreds, if not thousands, of vaping products available on the market. You are likely to find a vape shop in your local area and there are an abundance of vape kits online available at the click of a button. When it comes to vaping, there is a lot of choice. You can purchase kits for beginners, and you can tailor your vape kit to suit your wants and needs. There are even an abundance of e-liquid flavours out there that you can enjoy.
They Are Cost-Effective
Figures have shown that people who vape are £800 better off a year than smokers. This is because the cost of vaping, when compared to the price of cigarettes, is significantly lower. It is important to note that vaping does have more upfront costs as you will need to get your kit together. However, on an ongoing basis it is considerably cheaper. This is ideal for anyone out there who has a family. In life, we all look for ways that we can save money and cut costs. Particularly now energy bills and fuel costs are rising. Switching to a vape pen could save you hundreds of pounds each year.
Effects Of Second-Hand Vapour Are Negligible
Second-hand smoke can have an impact on your health as well as your families. It has been proven to increase risk of respiratory infections and serious conditions like heart diseases. However, vaping has been shown to not have the same risks when it comes to inhaling second-hand vapour. Unlike smoke, vapour evaporates quickly, which makes it much safer for those around you when you vape. To be on the safe side, you should always try and avoid vaping around young children and pregnant women.
It Can Help with Anxiety
There comes a time in all of our lives where we can feel anxious or stressed and at times these can be difficult feelings to combat. However, you may be surprised to know that vaping can help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress and as a result, can help you feel more relaxed.
Through some research of your own, you will be able to identify many destressing activities and vaping is just one of them. The great thing about a vape pen is it is small and portable. So, you can take it with you on the go. If you are out and about and catch yourself in a situation where you feel a heightened level of anxiety, you can take your vape pen out of your bag and quickly de-stress and calm yourself down.
Vaping Doesn’t Produce Harmful Chemicals When Exhaled
When compared to a tobacco cigarette, there are a lot fewer main ingredients in a vape. Most e-liquids contain four main ingredients. These are: Propylene Gas (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), nicotine and vape flavourings. All of which are deemed safe to consume. This means that vaping is safe to do both around people and when you are out and about in public. You don’t have to worry about harming those around you.
