Vaping was originally seen as a healthier option to traditional smoking, in fact millions of smokers have managed to give up the real thing after switching over. But now it appears that the younger generation are beginning to see vape as something of a fashion statement. This article takes a deeper look into the world of e-cigarettes and why they are just so damn cool.
Hobby or Habit?
Traditional smoking has suffered from a bad image and rightly so, the unhealthy addiction to tobacco consumption is considered to be a very bad habit. Vaping is more of a recreational hobby that individuals enjoy without harming bystanders. Vape users are able to relax with an e-cig without worrying about getting their next fix. This pastime is a world apart from the smelly and downright dangerous side effects of a real cigarette.
You only have to take a look at the myriad of social network sites that have sprung up as a result of Vaping and its loyal followers. Because e-cigarettes are not outlawed in many indoors establishments, the cool non-smokers can puff away whilst chilling out during the evening. Compare this with the forlorn smokers huddling around a makeshift ashtray in the pouring rain, no contest really.
Flavours and Fads
Although it may smack a little of the golden age of alcopops, just look at the sheer variety of flavours and brands that e-cigarettes are out there. It is definitely a fashion statement and if you are unsure of which one is ‘in’ at the moment, just check out the relevant social platform for your latest tip of the day.
To Vape or not to Vape?
Whilst it is true that the jury is still out on the long term effects of Vaping, not least the nicotine addiction issue, it is certain that the Vaping trend will be around for a long time yet. Good news or Bad news? – You decide.
