ecigs to quit smoking 2

Today, the world’s smokers have plenty of alternatives to choose from when they decide it’s time to kick the tobacco habit. From nicotine patches to gums to prescription drugs, there are endless products promising to help smokers quit. But the best selling alternative to cigarettes has risen to unparalleled levels of success this year. So far, electronic cigarettes have brought in $3.5 billion dollars, when is more than double the sales in 2013 according to Bonnie Herzog of Wells Fargo Securities.

Since 2004, vaping has gradually taken the center stage as a feasible alternative for smokers. Today, it’s common to see people puffing on ecigs all over the country in parks, shopping malls, and even walking down the street. Smokers are flocking to ecigs because they provide a similar experience to smoking a cigarette, but they eliminate tar and tobacco, the deadly combination that leaves thousands of smokers suffering from cancer. Plus ecigs release no secondhand smoke so vapers don’t have to worry about putting their loved ones at risk.

According to NewsWatch, ecigs are a winning solution and that is why they are currently the leading choice for smokers who want to quit. Washington DC resident Alexandria Kapitanskaya said ecigs helped her finally give up her cigarette habit. “I managed to get rid of my nicotine habit through vaping,” she said. “I used to consume half pack per day. But now, vaping only serves as my hobby.”

Alexandria explained that ecigs not only reduce her health risk, but they also save her quite a bit of money in the long run. “It offers me great savings. In fact, I only spend about $15 a month for vaping,” she said.

Greg Conley, President of the American Vaping Association, said that ecigarettes are rapidly evolving and the industry growth is evident in the number of smokers that have successfully walked away from nicotine addiction. “(The) majority of people who tried using e-cigarettes did this out of curiosity and this applies for both smokers and non-smokers,” Conley said. “Consumer awareness is encouraged in every vaping product plus vaping technology has been innovated over the years.”

All things considered, ecigarettes seem to be a massive success, especially among American smokers. With a proven track record to help people quit, it’s really not so surprising to see that ecigs are topping the sales charts for cigarette alternatives.

Did you choose ecigs as an alternative to smoking? Was it hard for you to make the switch?

Jimmy, lover, blogger, vaper and ex-smoker. I’ve been blogging about and supporting Vaping since 2009. They changed my life and I think history will show them as one of the most significant public health invention of the 21st century.

    I quit smoking and started vaping in 2013, I knew I had to stop smoking cigarettes before they killed me. I smoked for 45 years 2 packs a day.All I did was cough so I started buying the little ecigs at the smoke shop. They helped alot. One day my husband told me about an ecig store that opened in the neighborhood. Went right over that day and got a cheap vaping set up. It has totally changed my life. I don’t cough anymore and I’m down to 3mg’s of nicotine starting from 24.I don’t smell like cigarettes and don’t have to go outside to smoke anymore. It’s wonderful!

    I know quite a few people who have started vaping to quit smoking cigarettes, and they say it’s been a huge help for them. Many of them have gotten to the point where they smoke liquids with little or no nicotine at all. Thanks for sharing this!
