VAPING: The Latest Trend That Has Taken The World by Storm
For the longest time, cigarettes were the biggest thing in the nicotine market. Any person who wanted to get a hit of nicotine, cigarettes were their first choice as compared to any other nicotine delivery system such as the use of pipes or chewing tobacco. This also applied to people who wanted to take up smoking.
This trend was common until 10 years ago when there has been a significant change.
During the last decade, electronic cigarettes have taken the industry by storm. This is the latest trend with the newest generation of smokers. Funny enough, it is also catching up with elite smokers who have opted to switch to e-cigarettes instead.
This disruptive change made tobacco companies take notice and most of them want a piece of the cake. Many independent companies have also come up to manufacture e-cigarettes
Facts about vaping
A fact that many people are not aware of is that the first e-cigarette was seen in the 1960s but it did not take off until recently in the early 2000s. It is from then that the popularity of e-cigarettes has grown to unimaginable heights. Its popularity has surpassed the use of conventional cigarettes by a huge margin and is now the most used nicotine delivery system among young adults.
Other facts that you should know about electronic cigarettes include: –
- They are inexpensive and are easily accessible to almost anyone. This is good news to many because one e-cigarette is cheaper than buying a whole packet of regular cigarettes. This is also a good thing for regular smokers that are strapped on cash and cannot afford to purchase a packet of cigarette a day. It is simply a cost-effective alternative to the traditional method of smoking.
- They have a variety of flavors. E-cigarettes come in a variety of flavors to suit the specific preference of each consumer. These flavors range from candy flavors, coffee flavors, and fruity flavors among others. They are tempting and appealing to most people and especially the younger generation of smokers.
- They can be concealed. For one to smoke a regular cigarette, they need to have a lighter and an ashtray. This is not the case with e-cigarettes as they are very easy to hide. The newer models of e-cigarettes come in the shape of ballpoint pens while others resemble USB devices. This makes it easy for a smoker to get their daily dose of nicotine discreetly.
- They are odorless. This is one of the sole reasons why people are going for e-cigarettes. When smoked, they do not give off the unpleasant tobacco stench. This makes it hard for people to notice that you are smoking. This also makes it easier for smokers to stay in a room full of non-smokers.
- They do not always produce smoke. An experienced smoker can make it hard for you to realize that they are smoking. They have perfected the act of ‘ghost hitting.’ This is whereby, a smoker will inhale the vapor into the ENDS device for some time until it dissipates.
- They are all over the Internet. This is self-explanatory.
