Try as wholesale electronic cigarettes and vaping juice manufacturers might, actual smoking and smoking e-cigarettes is not exactly the same. That is not to say smokers reject them, they do not, but the experience is slightly different. Here are some of the major differences between vaping and smoking.
The Experience Itself
To their credit, wholesale e-cigarette and vape juice manufacturers have tried mightily to give smokers an identical experience to smoking through vaping. They have focused on texture, smell, aftertaste, the hit on the back of the throat, even the inhalation process, but there are subtle and not so subtle differences, for the hardcore smoker.
The casual smoker or someone who only smokes when drinking on weekends might not notice a difference, but to someone who has smoked a pack or pack and a half of cigarettes a day for a decade or more, the difference is significant. It is close enough, however, that you would almost have to be committed to continuing smoking to not be able to enjoy vaping, either by itself or as a replacement product.
The cost of each is really where buying the e-cigarette wholesale market can wipe up. With state taxes on tobacco products, there is virtually no way a normal vaping product can be as expensive as a daily cigarette purchasing habit, even if the vaper only buys high-end products.
For example, the cost of an average pack of cigarettes in New York State is over $14 and in Connecticut, over $9. If you are buying four packs every seven days or roughly one every two days, that is $56 a week in the former and $36 a week for the latter. Over the course of a year, that is over $2,600 a year for New York and over $1,600 a year in Connecticut. For many habitual smokers, buying a pack every two days is on the light side.
Conversely, even if you went with a high-end vaping starter kit and blew through a bottle every week you are still talking about less than $1,000 a year.
The other key difference between smoking cigarettes and using e-cigarettes are the chemicals you put into your body. Both forms include nicotine and Nitrosamines. Smoking adds to that Hydrogen Cyanide, Formaldehyde, Lead, Arsenic, Ammonia, Benzene, Carbon Monoxide and Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Vaping adds Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin and Acetaldehyde.
There are other differences between vaping with mainstream, wholesale electronic cigarettes and smoking, but none as stark as what is above. Overall, vaping is the better choice, for a host of reasons once you get past a comparison of what each experience when they vape or smoke.
