So lets start with the good news first. Vaping has numerous pros compared to smoking cigarettes. The following list is not absolutley everything, since we all know the pros of vaping are plentiful.


1. Health:

This is by far the most significant benefit of vaping. Vape flavors contain nicotine, but they do not contain the harmful combustion, tar or ash. An article that was published in the BMJ (a medical journal) in February 2018, stated that vaping is at least 95 percent less harmful than smoking. From oral hygiene to lung capacity, vaping is definitely superior to smoking in this aspect.

2. Aromas:

Have you ever felt self-conscious after you took a smoke? Let’s be honest, the smell burning tobacco leaves is not the nicest smelling cologne. Vaping has many amazing aromas. Flavors range from cotton candy to dunkin’ donuts and new ones are popping up every other day. After a smoke, you’ll strut with self-confidence and maybe even get a few compliments on your new aroma.

3. Affordability:

Competition is on the rise in the vaping industry. As more brands and products hit the market, prices are more affordable. Vapers can choose from a number of price ranges. Vapes are made in all different shapes and sizes and there will definitely be a product that doesn’t hurt your wallet. The flavored juices can last a while (depending on how much you smoke), which means that you won’t have to buy a new flavor every week (not to mention every day when you are an avid cigarette smoker).

4. Variety:

Smores? Glazed Doughnuts? Rasberry Lemon? Name your favorite flavor and have no doubt that there’s a juice (if not, there will definitely be a satisfying substitute). Don’t stress if you love the classical taste of tobacco, as there are many similar flavors to choose from too. Not only do the flavors vary, but you also gain access to a good deal of e-cigarettes, vape mods and vape pens. There are many brands to choose from.

5. Enjoyable:

It’s relaxing, fun and satisfying. Vaping will give you a new perception of smoking. You can learn vape tricks such as the Dragon, Tornado and Waterfall. Want to get really excited? Another reason why vaping is more preferable and satisfying than smoking is the smoke clouds produced while vaping. Go check a few videos on YouTube.


1. High Initial Costs:

As you have to buy the vaporizer and juice before you can start vaping, the initial cost will be higher than that of smoking. If you’re looking for a certain brand or product the vape can get pricey, but over time you will save money for sure, as the vape juice will last longer than cigarettes.

2. Finding The Right Product:

With so many choices and options, vaping can be quite overwhelming at first. It may take a while to find the brands and the flavors that suit your taste. New brands are popping up regularly and the options are only becoming more. By experimenting with different flavors and brands can help you to overcome this problem.

3. Nicotine:

Some smokers still prefer flavors and juices that contain nicotine. Nicotine is addictive and let’s face it, we all have our weaknesses. Do not fear, as there are juices that are nicotine-free. Nicotine content in the juices range from 0mg to 36mg. It’s up to you to decide what level you would prefer. It can be difficult for cigarette smokers to transition from cigarettes to 0mg vape juice. The transition will be easier if the smoker gradually reduces the nicotine content.

4. Some Devices Are Somewhat Complicated To Use:

At first, the terms and lingo of the vaping industry can be confusing. Some devices are harder to master than others and at the beginning it can seem difficult to understand the vape devices. However, it will be a quick learning curve when you get started. You will know the ins and outs of your vape in no time.

5. Cumulative Costs:

Unfortunately, like other consumable-based products, your liquid will need to be replenished. Vaping requires repeat purchases, just like smoking cigarettes. The regularity and duration of vaping will have an impact on these costs. Still, vaping juices do last longer compared to other methods of smoking.


Thank you for reading our list of pros and cons of vaping and hope you enjoyed it. Deciding what to use remains a personal preference and taste. Vaping is definitely one of the things that every smoker should try. It is more beneficial to your health, and overall it’s cheaper than smoking cigarettes. It’s one of the most convenient ways to smoke and you’ll never regret the decision of transitioning from cigarettes to vapes.
