Vaping Vs. Cigarettes: How To Know Which One Is Right For You

Picture4

In a lot of ways, vaping is the new kid on the block. While the first patents for what became the modern e-cigarette have been around for almost a century, there wasn’t a commercially successful product till 2003.

There’s a lot of research that is still being done on the benefits of vaping in comparison to smoking. But we have a pretty solid understanding today of what comprises both, and how they compare to each other.

This article will tell you everything you need to know.

Chemical Make-up and Safety

Let’s talk chemicals. We’ll keep it really simple so everyone can follow along. Cigarettes contain tobacco, which releases a ton of chemicals when it is combusted. Nicotine is one of those chemicals, and so are around 20 different ones that fall into the broad category of ‘carcinogens.’

Long story short, that’s a lot of bad. Vapes not only have a lot less nicotine, but they are also only made up of a few essential chemicals, two of which are Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin (These are what form the PG/VG values you’ve probably heard a lot about).

A recent study found that vaping can be up to 95% safer than smoking tobacco in the long run. Even if we were to leave room for a massive margin of error, there is next to no doubt that vaping is generally better for you.

This doesn’t even take into account factors such as people buying cheap cigarette brands which are much worse for you to save on rising costs.

Addiction/Nicotine Intake

The essential component of both cigarettes and vapes that has the potential to get you addicted is nicotine. The question to ask then is: how do vapes and cigarettes compare?

Well, it depends on a number of factors. For example, how many cigarettes do you smoke in a day? What kind of cigarettes do you smoke? Do you inhale the smoke deeply?

The same goes for vaping. How long does 10 ml of e-liquid last you? What is the nicotine strength of that liquid?

If we’re talking averages, however, people who vape generally take in a lot less nicotine. The average regular smoker smokes anywhere from 12-18 cigarettes a day. That’s about 20 mg of nicotine at the top end.

For people who vape regularly, a 10 ml amount of e-liquid lasts about 5 days. But adding to this equation is what the nicotine strength of the liquid they vape is. If someone uses the most common 6 mg variant, their daily nicotine intake amounts to 12 mg, a sizeable difference to cigarettes.

Which Should You Choose?

As evidenced by most of this article, e-cigarettes are generally a safer, less addictive bet than cigarettes. They’re even known to help people get on the road to quitting nicotine altogether (they come in 0 mg varieties too!).

The only factor left to consider is price. Cigarettes might seem cheaper on the surface, but the expenses add up a lot in the long run. On the other hand, buying a vape pen or mod might seem like too much upfront, but it’s definitely cheaper than smoking in the long term.

We suggest looking for cheaper vape pens instead, however.

If you’re someone who is looking to curb their nicotine habit slowly, Ruze Vapor is a Seattle based company that runs an online e-liquid store. They sell e-liquids—also known as vapor juice—in many nicotine strengths, from 0 mg all the way to 12 mg. Their store is a great place to replace cigarettes with vaping.

The Smell of Success: Ways to Make Your Perfume Hobby Affordable

“Nothing brings to life again
a forgotten memory
like fragrance.”

Christopher Poindexter

From the aroma of a dash of saffron to the subtle, yet lingering scent of rain, we rely on our sense of smell for everything.

Whether it’s the whiff of old, worn-out clothes, or the trace of baked, gooey chocolate chip cookies, we associate things and people around us with the way they smell.

How many times have you been able to tell who’s walked through the door because of the subtle, yet powerful fragrance that follows?

How many times have you had to take another route to work because of the malodor nearby?

But there’s a difference between “scent” and “smell.”

Our favorite scents are the ones we want to be able store in a gorgeous glass bottle. But collecting fragrances can be an expensive hobby.

Or is it?

For Your Scent’s Worth

For the avid perfume enthusiast, there’s more to amassing dozen of fragrances on their dresser. It’s about the experience and collecting a true work of art.

But your hobby doesn’t have to cost you thousands of dollars. With caution and a few tricks, you can learn more about scents and keep within budget.

Smell, Smell, and Smell!  

What’s the best way to learn about fragrances and scents? Simple: improve your sense of smell!

You don’t even need to purchase perfumes to be able to discern different scents! Just goes “scent shopping.”

If you want to sample an Armani Summer Code, you can simply walk into the shop and ask for a test. Take a notebook with you so that you can write down your experiences. This way, you’ll learn all about different types of perfumes and scents.

Don’t Rush Into Buying  

This is one of the most important things to remember. Sure, it smells great but that doesn’t mean you should buy it. When you’re starting a collection, you need to learn a lot of things.

You need to be able to discern replicas from originals; should be able to tell the source of the scent and create your own mix.

It’s Classy and Classic

Begin with classic perfumes. If you really want to create a collection of some of the most exotic and incredible perfumes, start with the classics.

From Chanel no. 19 to Dior’s Eau Sauvage, there’s plenty to choose from. But that doesn’t mean you should choose all of them. All you need is a few pieces to complete your collection.

Remember that it’s all about appreciating different scents, not collecting every bottle ever produced.
