Vaping as an Alternative to Smoking Cigarettes

No one can argue against the harmful long term effects smoking cigarettes has on your lungs and overall health. In 1964 The United States surgeon general came out with

a report that linked smoking cigarettes with lung cancer. 


Since then, the United States government has taken considerable initiatives in curbing the health crisis by mandating warning labels on cigarette packs, launching anti-smoking commercials, and banning cigarette companies from advertising their products. While the percentage of Americans who smoke cigarettes has dropped to 14%, this still translates to about 34 million Americans who currently smoke and more than 16 million Americans who live with a smoking-caused illness. 


E-Cigarettes


"E-cigs" were first invented in 2003 in China and first marketed in Europe in 2005. In 2007, they received an international patent and became available to the US market. By 2015, around 10% of American adults were using e-cigs. 


E-cigarettes heat nicotine, which releases a vapor that a user can then pull into their lungs. While there is still research out on the exact chemicals found in an e-cigarette, there is almost no doubt that the chemicals released from e-cig vapor are fewer and less harmful than those released through smoking a traditional cigarette. 


E-Cigarettes to Help Stop Smoking


Individuals all over the world have used e-cigs as a way to curb their cigarette habit. A 2019 study conducted in France found that regular e-cig use is associated with a significant reduction in the number of cigarettes an individual smokes per day. 


In addition, e-cig users were one and a half times more likely to quit smoking altogether when compared to traditional smokers. Studies have found that vaping is almost twice as effective at quitting smoking as other previously used methods such as nicotine gum, patches, etc. 


Smoking a cigarette burns the tobacco and releases close to 7,000 harmful chemicals directly into a user's lungs. Vaping, on the other hand, heats the nicotine to produce a vapor that releases fewer chemicals into the lungs. Vape pens usually have different settings that control the temperature at which the nicotine is heated and vaporized. 


Cigarettes do not have such a mechanism, and so a user cannot slowly reduce their nicotine inhalation over time as they can with an e-cig. Frequently, users who wish to stop smoking altogether start at a high setting on their vape pen to mimic the same feeling they get after smoking a cigarette. As time passes, users can slowly lower the setting and release less and less nicotine into their lungs until they can curb the addiction for good. 



Zepto-Vape


Zepto-Vape aims to help curb the harmful effects of smoking by giving people addicted to nicotine a healthier and more convenient alternative. Zepto-Vape is the size of a credit card and can fit in a user's wallet, so they are never stuck without their vape, and the temptation to buy a pack of cigarettes does not arise. 


Wireless charging ensures a user's vape is always charged and ready for use when cravings occur. Zepto-Vape's slim and functional design limits the withdrawal symptoms that come with trying to quit smoking by guaranteeing a user always has access to their smoking alternative. Furthermore, the Zepto-Vape has a battery life three times that of the Juul, a popular vaping product among e-cig users. Therefore, it's small size does not compromise its functionality. 


E-Cig Bans


As of January 2020, the CDC has confirmed 60 deaths related to vaping. This caused a huge uproar and calls soon came to ban e-cigs from the market. Many local and state jurisdictions around the country have started enacting laws that prohibit e-cigarette usage. What the media doesn't address is that most vaping related deaths are because users modify their vapes or buy e-liquid from the black market. 


This health crisis applies almost exclusively to individuals who are vaping using black market THC products. The CDC found that some of these black market products were using Vitamin E acetate as a thickening agent in their liquid. This Vitamin E found in THC vaping products has left users with shortness of breath and severe lung injuries. While we must not take these instances lightly, it is essential to note that these injuries don't apply to people who vape nicotine or those who use quality products. Using vaping products from a reputable source is still a healthier alternative to inhaling the carcinogens found in cigarette smoke. 


If you are considering buying a Zepto-Vape to curb your daily cigarette habit, congratulations on taking the first step to quitting a harmful habit.
