Why Vaping Matters: Ian’s Story

Meet Ian, our friendly and knowledgeable customer service specialist in our Larne store. This week, he shares Why Vaping Matters to him and how it has impacted him positively.

Ian switched to vaping 4 years ago. The main reason was to improve his health; his lungs were constantly congested and wheezy before switching. Now, he feels that his health has improved since then.

Why Switch?

A More Effective NRT

It can be challenging to stop smoking as it is a physical and psychological addiction. Nicotine patches & gum deliver nicotine to the body, however, it fails to replicate the throat hit, which vaping provides and so mimic's the conventional cigarette smoke. Also, vaping allows the user to continue to hold something in their hand.

We believe that vaping puts the power in your hands. With the option to choose from 0mg to 18mg of nicotine strength, depending on your requirement, the ability to control your throat hit, the variety of batteries with varying capacity available, and many more options in comparison to traditional methods of smoking. Therefore, there is a greater chance that those who use vaping to quit smoking will manage to stay tobacco-free, making vaping a very successful nicotine replacement therapy (NTR).

Breathing in even a little tobacco smoke can be harmful as 250 of the 7,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke is known to be harmful, such as ammonia, carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide. E-liquid on the other hand only contains a few ingredients: propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), water, flavouring and nicotine. Research highlights that vaping is 95% healthier than traditional cigarettes. This is one of the reasons why vaping matters to Ian and he is already feeling the benefits of switching to vaping.
