Tobacco cigarette is infamously known as a form of escapism for people that have a lot on their plate and they need something that could help them deal with all those problems and challenges. But, what about vape? What are the reasons behind this vapour treat?
Let’s us clear the air for you, here’re some of the reasons that might have triggered someone to start vaping.
Even though the debate whether vaping could stop smoking or not hasn’t stopped rolling, it doesn’t bother e-cigarette manufacturers to continue to make-believe e-cigarette as a smoking cessation method. Adding up, smokers also agree that vape as the main reason for them to quit smoking.
One can assume, just because FDA has not acknowledged e-cigarette as a smoking cessation method, that doesn’t mean there are no isolated cases whereby smokers managed to quit smoking by switching to e-cigarette.
However, it shouldn’t be a surprise that more and more people switch to e-cigarette. E-cig, after all, is a successor to traditional tobacco cigarette.
E-cigarette has officially kick-off it’s golden days since 2012 and continues booming the market on 2015 and counting. When it first started, most people claimed they switch to vape because they want to quit smoking. However, as time goes by, social image has become the main reason; to look cool.
Believe it or not, more people are vaping to boost their social image within society as well as in social media. This is because e-cig marketing strategy has been focusing on promoting vaping as a cool way of life. A cool life unquestionably is a way that could escalate your social image.
With all the aggressive marketing strategies using colourful graphics and video, e-cig manufacturers manage to institutionalised vaping with a trendy lifestyle…and obviously, people are feeding on it…Duhh.
According to NerdWallet, an American personal financial website, e-cigarette is 40% cheaper than tobacco cigarette. Traditional cigarette really put a dent to your wallet especially among those in the lower socioeconomic group of people.
Costly wise, e-cig is much cheaper and healthier…so, it shouldn’t be a surprise if more people switch to vape because why bother to spend more if you can get the same satisfaction.
It can be said, cost wise is one of the major reasons why a lot of people switch to a money-savvy option plus healthier. Vape does not only save your money, but it also saves your life. Possibly.
