Ditching cigarettes for good is no easy task, but a vape shop can offer a way out of the struggle.

Smoking kills. By now, most people are aware of this stark and horrifying fact. A few decades ago, people were happily puffing away, without a care in the world or any warnings about the real dangers they were taking in with every breath. We now know that because of the many hazardous chemicals released during the burning process, tobacco kills half of the people who smoke. That amounts to an astonishing 7 million people around the world each year who die from smoking. Close to 1 million of those tobacco victims are not smokers, but lose their lives to diseases caused by inhaling secondhand smoke. With 100,000 people dying from smoking-related diseases in the UK every year, it's the biggest cause of preventable death here and right around the world. Everyone — from health authorities to smokers themselves — are looking for a real alternative to end this rolling crisis. Nicotine is so incredibly addictive that even the most strong-willed people can have extraordinary trouble trying to kick the habit. But what if they don’t have to, and can use e-cigarettes from a good vape shop to become far healthier in the process?

The Great Vape Shop Answer

A quality vape shop, such as ours here at Electric Tobacconist UK, has everything a smoker aims to get from cigarettes. As increasing amounts of high-profile studies are starting to show, the e-cigarette has become the real alternative to smoking. Our very own Royal College of Physicians has investigated the matter and issued its own guidance on vaping. The physicians “concluded that e-cigarettes are likely to be beneficial to UK public health. Smokers can therefore be reassured and encouraged to use them, and the public can be reassured that e-cigarettes are much safer than smoking.” The doctors also found that e-cigarettes are not a gateway to smoking, because in the UK at least, most people who vape are using, or have used, traditional cigarettes. This comes along with the now-annual Stoptober campaign that urges people to give up smoking for good. This year, for the first time, it recommended that smokers switch to vaping as a way to try and get off cigarettes. It advised that vaping "carries a small fraction of the risk of smoking and can help you quit". It also said that e-cigarettes "are particularly effective when combined with support from local stop smoking services — people who choose this route have some of the highest quitting success rates".


Great Vape Shop Choices

Nowadays, people (whether smokers or not) can choose from an extensive range of e-cigarettes and the e-liquids they contain. Taking our online vape shop as an example, there's a huge variety of e-liquid flavours available, with nicotine of differing strengths — from low to high and even none, as many people just like the fruity flavours and don't want the nicotine at all. It's not only your health you're saving with vaping, either; there are also big financial savings to be had. For those who manage to get off cigarettes for good, by vaping instead, they'll find their habit costs only a fraction of what expensive cigarettes do. After buying a vaping device, e-liquid refills are inexpensive and last much longer than a pack of cigarettes. In fact, we even sell e-liquid from as low as just 99p! Plus, with secure payment options and swift delivery, there’s nothing to worry about and you’ll have your vaping gear and refills in a flash. Vaping, it turns out, may well be the answer everyone was seeking in the long-running war on tobacco.
