Is Vaping Worse Than Smoking

Just because you might be vaping way more than you smoked, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re harming your health more. 

In fact, the NHS released a statement saying they found that vaping is 95% safer than smoking cigarettes. Not only that, recent studies have found that if 50% of current smokers switch to vaping instead, hospital admissions would reduce by 13% and would ultimately save the NHS £518 million per year! 

Now don’t get us wrong, vaping nicotine hasn’t been proven to be 100% safe, but it is a lot safer than constantly smoking standard cigarettes. 

But we go more into this in our recent blog post about what happens when you quit smoking and start vaping instead.

You’re Not Vaping the Correct Nicotine Strength

If you’re vaping nicotine e-liquid, it could be the strength of the nicotine isn’t quenching your nicotine cravings as well as a standard cigarette could.  

In the UK, vape liquids are available in a range of nicotine strengths, with the highest being 20 mg/ml in either freebase nicotine or nicotine salts. 

Especially if you’ve recently switched from smoking to vaping and are new to the vaping community,

 it’s ideal to have a variety of strengths to select from because you can slowly start to decrease your nicotine strength as well. 

You might vape more if you select a vape juice with a nicotine strength that is too low for what you prefer. 

One study discovered that people who vaped with lower nicotine strengths inhaled more of it than people who vaped with higher strengths. 

However, nicotine vaping is entirely a matter of personal preference. It’s not a given that switching to an e-liquid with more nicotine potency will result in less vaping for you.

Considering the much faster absorption rates of nic salts compared to standard nicotine e-liquid, you may actually find that you vape less with nicotine salts as you’re given a satisfying amount of nicotine to begin with.
