Newest Developments in Rising Trend of Vaping Vs. E-cigarettes excerpt from link above: "TD: So what do you think is the reason behind the growing popularity of vaping? SL: I think there’s a couple different reasons. Um I’ll just kind of classify it health benefit, cost benefit, social benefit. Health perspective, I mean folks are looking for a better alternative that doesn’t introduce a lot of the carcinogens that traditional smoking does. You know smoking is down over 15% in the first quarter of 2015 according to studies. That kinda tells a story. Cost stand point. You know cigarettes are over $10 a pack in a lot of different areas. And the other piece is the social benefits. You know it is becoming increasingly difficult to find areas to be able to smoke. It’s all over, you smell, and it gets all over your hands and your clothes. And vaporizing offers some benefits there as well." I have to agree with "Um I’ll just kind of classify it health benefit, cost benefit, social benefit." I have saved a lot of money since I have made the switch. I do have a mech and regulated mod, 2 tanks and 2 RDA. That is it. I do not spend money on the next new and shiny vaping device to hit the market. I DIY my own eJuice also to keep my costs down. Socially, the only benefit for me is the 'ashtray smell'. I do not vape in buildings (except my own home), such as restaurants, stores, or outdoor market/public venues. Basically if I can not smoke there, I do not vape there. I try to not be a Vapehole or rude vaper.
