Happy Vapril!April 18, 2023
This month, vaping enthusiasts across the globe come together to celebrate the benefits of vaping. Vapril is the name given to this month-long celebration of the positive impact vaping has on people’s lives. It was first introduced by the UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) as a way of promoting the benefits of vaping to smokers who are looking to quit.
What is Vapril About?
Vapril aims to educate smokers about the benefits of switching to vaping. It also looks to dispel the myths and misconceptions surrounding the practice. Many people are still sceptical about vaping. They believe that it is just as harmful as smoking, or that it is a gateway to smoking. However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that vaping is a much safer alternative to smoking, and that it can help smokers to quit for good.
Vaping has been around for more than a decade, and it has grown in popularity as an alternative to smoking. It involves inhaling a vapor that is generated by an electronic device. These devices are commonly known as e-cigarettes, which heats up a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavourings, and other additives. Unlike smoking, vaping does not involve the burning of tobacco, which is known to release harmful chemicals and toxins. These are what commonly cancer and other health problems for smokers.
Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking
One of the main reasons why vaping is so popular is that it is much less harmful than smoking. According to Public Health England, vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking. Furthermore, it can help smokers to reduce their risk of developing smoking-related diseases. These include lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke. This is because vaping does not involve the inhalation of harmful chemicals and toxins that are produced by burning tobacco, such as tar and carbon monoxide.
Vaping helps smokers to quit
Another benefit of vaping is that it can help smokers to quit. Many people find it difficult to quit smoking, even though they know it is bad for their health. Vaping can provide a less harmful alternative to smoking that still satisfies their nicotine cravings. This in turn makes it easier for them to quit for good. According to a study by the Oxford University, smokers who switched to vaping were more likely to quit smoking than those who used other nicotine replacement therapies, such as gum or patches.
Vaping is also more socially acceptable than smoking. This is because it does not produce the same strong smell or smoke that can irritate and even cause harm to non-smokers. Many workplaces and public spaces now ban smoking, but vaping is often allowed as it is considered to be less harmful and less obtrusive. This means that vapers can enjoy their nicotine fix without having to go outside or worry about offending others.
Vaping is cheaper than smoking
Finally, vaping is much more affordable than smoking. According to a study by the University College London, smokers who switch to vaping can save up to £780 of the money they would have spent on cigarettes. This is because vape devices and e-liquids are much cheaper than cigarettes in the long run.
Vapril is an important celebration that highlights the benefits of vaping. It encourages smokers to make the switch to a less harmful alternative. Vaping is much safer than smoking, it can help smokers to quit and it is much more affordable. If you are a smoker who is thinking about quitting then Vapril is the perfect time to try. With so many flavours and devices available, there has never been a better time to join the vaping community and start enjoying the benefits of a smoke-free life.
