Why Vaping Matters: Amy’s story
Meet Amy! She switched to vaping 4 years ago and shares with us the differences she has noticed since making the switch.
Why did Amy switch to vaping?
Amy switched to vaping mainly to protect her two young children from the harmful effects of passive smoking. As well as this, the cost of vaping is so much more affordable than buying a packet of cigarettes every day.
What differences has Amy noticed since switching?
Amy explains that she enjoys the taste of vaping, especially in comparison to smoking cigarettes which left her feeling sick afterwards. She no longer worries about the smell on her clothes or hands and yellow stained fingers.
Does Amy have any advice for people thinking of switching?
Amy makes a great point that many people, including herself feel that they need to go straight for a large device that can produce massive clouds. Given that the sensation of vaping is also a little different to smoking, starting with a massively powerful device might prove overwhelming and not do a good job of replicating the sensation of cigarettes meaning those trying to switch will feel discouraged. A great point! Start small and work your way up if you want to.
She also points out that choosing a flavour that you like can take a few attempts, so you should be willing to try several flavour types before finding the ideal one for you. Speaking to the advisors in-store is a great place to start!
