Make the switch to E-Cigs? 5 biggest benefits of e-cigarettes

Congratulations! The fact that you’re reading this means that you are finally considering going smoke-free. E-cigarettes have proved to be the best alternative to conventional cigarettes so far, with studies showing that they are almost TWICE as effective as any other method!
The reason that the best electronic cigarettes are so effective comes down to a few key differences between cigarettes and e-cigarettes.
Perhaps the most important difference though is that E-Cigarettes are 95% less harmful than cigarettes!
To understand then why millions of people in the UK alone have made the switch to E-Cigs, read on:
1. Healthier smoke
This is perhaps the most obvious and best advantage of using e-cigarettes. But to call it smoke is actually wrong, E-cigarettes produce vapour not smoke. And this is a big reason why e-cigarettes are so much less harmful than cigarettes.
Smoke in the lungs causes a huge amount of damage to the smoker as it destroys the cells, which is why smokers can't absorb oxygen like non-smokers can. The tar in cigarettes is also a huge concern, with the tar over time clogging and slowly killing your lung cells.
Vapour from e-cigarettes though is much kinder to your lungs, as it is water vapour and doesn't carry any tar like cigarette smoke.
To see an example of a vaper's lungs vs. a smoker's lungs, Public Health England (the UK government body that deals with health issues) released a video showing precisely how terrible cigarettes are for you lungs compared to how little effect e-cigarettes have.

If you read that article you won't be surprised to hear that Public Health England declared E-Cigarettes as 95% less harmful than cigarettes.
2. Fewer chemicals
Tobacco cigarettes are stuffed with chemicals and carcinogens, there's a reason that cigarettes are the No.1 preventable cause of death in the world after all.
But many smokers don't realise how bad they are, in 1 cigarette there are almost 70 known carcinogens! On top of that there are 4000+ chemicals also found in cigarettes, some of which can cause almost as much harm as the carcinogens.

In contrast to cigarettes, E-cigarettes only have 4 ingredients. They are Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, Flavouring and Nicotine.
The Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine and the flavourings are harmless and can be found in sweets, chewing gum, ice cream and a whole load of other items we eat everyday. As such they have been tested to make sure they are safe for human consumption.
Nicotine is of course in the mix as well, after all nicotine is the reason why we all smoked! Nicotine though, while being addictive, isn't particularly harmful to you. It's main danger is that it hooks you to cigarettes, and the 4000+ chemicals also in cigarettes do the rest.
3. No smell
As long term smokers we all got used to the smell of cigarette smoke, but even the most ardent cigarette supporter (if there are any around anymore) can't say cigarette smoke smells nice.
To most, cigarette smoke or stale cigarette smoke has a very unpleasant smell, and even worse it sticks to everything. Ask any non-smoker, just a couple of minutes of standing near a smoking cigarette is enough to make their clothes stink.
In contrast, the best E-Cigs produces vapour with (at worst) a very faint smell, which is from the flavouring. Switching to e-cigarettes prevents your hair, clothes and furniture from smelling like an ashtray every time you smoke. The same applies to the unpleasant yellowish tinge that conventional tobacco smoke has on hair, skin and teeth.
4. Great flavours
Tobacco only comes in a few flavours, and with the upcoming Menthol ban coming soon it will just be tobacco flavour. If you like the flavour of cigarettes then that's great, SMOKO has a wide range of tobacco flavours for you to try. And if you still want to taste Menthol after the ban in May we have our Menthol E-Cigarettes ready for you to enjoy.
You can, however, also branch out from traditional tobacco. If you want you can explore our wide assortment of flavours for e-cigarettes. E-cigs enable you to enjoy your nicotine with several delicious, unusual flavourings. So if you want to try something that doesn't taste anything like cigarettes, but still need that nicotine hit, E-cigarettes are the best choice for you.
5. A host of strengths
Nicotine in tobacco is hit any miss, with different brands having different concentrations and no clear way to measure the difference. With E-cigarettes the strengths are easily seen, enabling you to work your way down the strengths if you so choose.
With E-cigarettes you can find the perfect strength for you and if you so choose you can move to lighter and lighter strengths until you are finally free of nicotine.
