6.1 Million Europeans have Quit Smoking Using an Electronic Cigarette

Electronic Cigarette Study

Another positive E Cigarette study has come out of Greece this year, showing a whopping 6.1 million Europeans quitting smoking with the use of Electronic Cigarettes.

Scientist from the University of Patras - Greece, Onassis CardaicSurgery Centre, Greece and the French National research Institute for Health and Medical research conducted a study in all 28 states of the European Union using and analysing the data from the 2014 Eurobarometer on smoking and e-cigarettes.

According to the study findings:

  • 48.5 Million Europeans have tried and E Cigarette
  • 7.5 Million currently use E Cigarettes

Among E Cigarette Users:

  • 35.1% have quit smoking
  • 32.2% have reduced their smoking consumption

This data shows that the use of Electronic Cigarette seem to be having a positive impact on public health for two main reasons:

  1. High smoking cessation and reduction rates are observant in the data
  2. Electronic Cigarette is largely confined to smokers with minimal use by non-smokers

There has been a lot of controversy over the use of Electronic Cigarettes by non-smokers even claims that E Cigarettes are a "gateway" to smoking but research appears reassuring with the study showing:

  • 1.3% of non-smokers reported currently using an E Cigarette containing Nicotine
  • 0.09% of non-smokers reporting daily use of an E Cigarette

Practically stating, there is no current / regular use of E Cigarette containing nicotine among non-smokers, so the concern that Electronic Cigarette can be a "gateway" to smoking is largely rejected by the finding in this research.

5 Myth About E Cigarette and Vaping That Big Tobacco Want You To Believe!

Myth 1. E Cigarette and Vaping is just as dangerous as Tobacco Cigarettes

Recent studies show that vaping is a much safer and healthier alternative to traditional smoking with some strong points on the vaping and Electronic Cigarette side for one Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT to name a few compared to vaping which only contains 5 chemical Propylene Glycol a substance found in asthma inhalers, Vegetable Glycerin which is an organic compound found in vegetables, Food grade Flavouring, Sucralose is a sweetener found in some E juice and Nicotine which is optional. Another main factor would be tar. There is none present in vapor where as smoking or burning anything will produce a thick and toxic byproduct. If you blow cigarette smoke out on a tissue it will turn yellow instantly however with vapor it will remain white. There is still further research taking place to further understand vaping, E Cigarettes and the flavours used.

Myth 2. E Cigarette and Personal Vaporizers Exploding and Causing Serious Injury

Yes, there has been stories of Electronic Cigarette and Personal Vaporizers exploding in the papers recently but did you know that the majority of these stories are referring to unregulated,  mechanical mods and in-properer storage of cell batteries which can be extremely dangerous if not used correctly. Here at Puff Vaping we only sell trusted and known brands like Eleaf mods with safety features including: 10 second safety shut off, short circuit protection, low voltage protection and use safe chemistry battery's, these features have been included in all regulated mods to prevent incidents like this accruing, so for those concerned about Electronic Cigarette and Vaping safety the industry is concerned about this problem too and is advancing is safety features to ensure a safer product for our customer.

Myth 3. Vaping and E Cigarettes don't taste or feel like Tobacco Cigarettes

Plain and simply vaping isn't smoking there is a difference to the feel and taste but for the first time vaping allows smokers the opportunity to vape a wide range of E juice flavours and cut out a wide range of chemicals that come with Tobacco Smoke and still hit cravings on the head with a safer alternative. 

Myth 4. Its Expensive To Start Vaping

The initial set up cost can range form anywhere between $30 - $130 depending on where you want to start for example you could start with a Ego 1100mah Vape Pen and The Kangertech Protank 3 Mini this kit is great for new vapors the battery last for about 24hr with light to moderate use and the Kangertech Protank 3 Mini atomizer is easy to use and and provides a warm vape this kit cost $32.00 or you could choose something a bit bigger like the Eleaf iStick 20w and the Aspire Nautilus Mini 2ml this kit is great for new vapors who aren't looking at upgrading in the near future the battery can last up to 3 days with moderate to heavy use, the Aspire Nautilus Mini atomizer provides good vape production and great airflow this kit cost $74.95 or you could go all the way to Sub-ohming with a Eleaf iStick 100w Box Mod and the Aspire Atlantis V2 this kit is great for anyone who likes big clouds and low Nicotine these batteries will last 1-2days with heavy use at high wattage. The Aspire Atlantis atomizer come with a great airflow system that provides great vape production and great taste this kit cost $105.00. After the initial cost though the cost drops with the average vaper going through one coil a fortnight and about 60mls bottle of E Liquid a fortnight the cost work out to be about $18 a fortnight depending on what personal vaporizer system you use with the average smoker spending $148.00 a week your sure to save money in the long run.

Myth 5. E Cigarettes are Not An Effective Tool For Quitting Smoking

I'm sorry but I have to call bullshit! on this one me and my partner completely stopped smoking by switching to vaping and have never looked back, and come to think about it so did 30 of our closest friends. We are all living proof.
