There are many great benefits of using e-cigarettes or vaping devices, sometimes colloquially referred to as ‘cigalikes.’ One of the big problems with talking about ‘cigalikes’ is the fact that there is a lot of misinformation about them as a product. You’ll often read a lot of conflicting information too, with some sources saying that e-cigarettes are healthier than regular smoking. At Kev’s Vape, we do not promote vaping as a healthier alternative to smoking or a way of quitting. Instead, we see vaping as an alternative to smoking, one that brings its own set of benefits.
Cheaper in the long-term
E-cigarettes can be a cheaper option in the long-run. A normal pack of cigarettes can set an adult back $40 AUD. If you are a pack-a-day smoker, then consider how much $40 a day (approximately) will set you back over a month.
Now, compare this number to an e-cigarette device. Sure, the start-up costs are a fair bit higher, but then all you must pay for after that is a liquid. An entire cartridge can last several days as well, depending on your patterns of use.
On top of this, vaping is quite a fashionable and unique thing to do. While you shouldn’t be vaping just for the “prestige”, it is something that can be evocative. If you’re trying to pull off a hipster or indie kind of vibe, then vaping is a sure way to achieve that. You can deck out your image with some other accessories as well, especially in terms of clothes.
You never know, you might find yourself the centre of attention at a party, since vaping is something that piques the interest of a lot of people. It can be a great way to socialise with other people and get a conversation going. No one wants to be feeling lonely or awkward at a party, especially if everyone else seems to know each other.
Disposability is a big plus when it comes to using e-cigarettes. Normal paper cigarettes are often disposed of in negligent way. Everyone has seen a cigarette butt on the ground. Thankfully, with electronic cigarettes, you don’t have to worry about your ecological footprint as much. It’s easier to dispose of – there is nothing to dispose of. Just be sure to be conscious of where you blow your smoke, as it is very impolite to blow smoke in the direction of other people.
