In the year 2014 The Oxford English Dictionary announced their new word of the year was vape. To vape didn’t even exist just a decade earlier, and now it’s a multi-billion-dollar business and growing.
The vaping business was invented by a Chinaman, a country where at least half the total male population smoke cigarettes. That’s about three hundred million.
Just ten years after the invention of the vape pen, that Chinaman sold the patent for seventy-million dollars. The biggest investors in vaping are the big tobacco conglomerates and this makes many observers believe that the writing is on the wall for tobacco.
With vape shops popping up on the high street at an average rate of two a week, this is in direct contrast with other types of shops closing. If you enter into your search engine the words along the line of find a vape shop, there will probably be one within walking distance.
As of last February, there were over two thousand of these shops in the UK. And although anyone can buy vape products online, studies show that these shops are usually very supportive of vape customers that find giving up tobacco cigarettes difficult to handle.
As this is such a booming business, as soon as statistics are published they’ve changed. For example, according to a news item two years ago, it was thought there were five hundred juice manufacturers.
There were also an estimated seven thousand flavoured juices made collectively by those manufacturers. Today that figure is thought to be nearer ten thousand and there are many more manufacturers in the business.
With so many choices, it’s obviously a good idea if you are thinking of quitting tobacco and taking up vaping, to visit your local store.
There are different levels of nicotine and starting with the highest that will give the same kick as your cigarette, many people find that over time they can reduce the amount perhaps all the way to zero.
By far the majority of the three million UK citizens that use vaping devices to obtain nicotine, previously were tobacco cigarette smokers.
This is the reason that all electronic devices were invented. The story goes that a Chinese pharmacist called Hon Lik was a heavy smoker just like his father. When his father died from smoke related lung cancer he decided to look at alternative ways to obtain the nicotine hit, all smokers crave.
There have been many modifications since that first prototype fifteen years ago. But in that short period, it’s hard to think of many inventions that have been so dramatically successful. With the ever-decreasing numbers year on year of teenagers never tempted to smoke at all.
It is thought that in a very few number of years, cigarette smoking will completely die out in the UK. Some other nations have a heavier smoking culture and will take much longer.
Vaping is not intended to seduce young people that have never smoked tobacco. But it is intended for smokers that want to give up and find it difficult to manage.
The E-liquid used in the vaping device can vary greatly in the amount of nicotine it contains. And this is a further help to giving up nicotine totally when a vape user can use decreasing amounts of nicotine over time.
At the point when there is no nicotine content at all, you’d think that people would put the vaping device away. But strangely, we know from details supplied from manufacturers that there are many requests for nicotine free e juices.
Perhaps that’s just the long-held habit of carrying a cigarette and then vape, as some kind of prop. If you are a tobacco user and recognise all the health risks, then maybe you should try vaping.
There is plenty to read about vaping on the internet but in the end a visit to the nearest high street vape shop will give you all the detail you need to start.
