If you’ve spent any time reading about vaping online, you know that it’s a big hit with doctors who are trying desperately to get their patients to quit smoking. Vaping has great promise for improving public health and reducing the harm that smoking causes – and if you’re a smoker, the potential health implications of vaping probably have you thinking that it’s time for you to consider making the switch like the millions of others around the world who already vape. What you may not know, though, is that vaping can also improve your life in several other unexpected ways. What can vaping do for your life? Check out these amazing unexpected benefits of vaping.
Vaping Can Lower Your Life Insurance Premium
Most life insurance carriers treat vaping the same as smoking because vaping hasn’t existed long enough for experts to make a determination about how it affects life expectancy. There is, however, an exception. At the time of writing, Prudential offers life insurance to vapers at the Non-Smoker Plus rate class. There are only two catches. The first is that you must disclose your nicotine use, which is obvious since they’ll detect it during your health examination anyway. The second is that you cannot have smoked a cigarette for at least one year. Depending on your age and other health factors, Prudential offers life insurance to vapers for as little as half of what smokers pay. That’s a difference that can put a lot of extra money in your pocket!
Vaping Costs Far Less Than Smoking
Around the world, federal, state and local governments use tobacco as a target for taxation both as a means of generating revenue and as a way to encourage smokers to quit. Smoking, after all, causes an enormous drain on the healthcare system to the tune of $170 billion per year in the United States alone. There’s no way for taxation to make up for that loss of money, so most governments would prefer that smokers simply quit rather than paying tobacco taxes. As a result, those taxes do not apply to vaping products in most regions. Even if you use a powerful sub-ohm vaping device that drains tank after tank, you’ll still save money if you switch from smoking to vaping.
Vaping May Improve Your Brain Function
Yep, you read that right. Smoking messes with your brain in a major way by inhibiting the body’s production of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A), an enzyme that regulates the body’s reward system. Tobacco smoke has that property, but nicotine alone doesn’t. Inhaling tobacco smoke, in other words, makes your body feel as though you’ve just given yourself a reward. The reward reinforces your nicotine addiction by making you want to light up again. Since nicotine alone isn’t an MAO-A inhibitor, switching to vaping can theoretically improve your mental state. That might explain why some studies have shown that vapers are less addicted to nicotine than smokers. Think of how much better you’ll feel when you divorce yourself from all of the other chemicals in cigarettes!
Vaping Normalizes Your Gut Bacteria
In a recent study, researchers cultured the gut bacteria of people who smoked, people who vaped and people who didn’t use nicotine in any form. The researchers found that, while smoking can greatly alter the gut bacteria profile of a person, vapers and nonsmokers have virtually the same species of bacteria in their intestines. Smokers tend to have higher populations of the Prevotella bacteria common in people with colitis and colon cancer. Smokers also tend to have less of the Bacteroides bacteria that help us avoid Crohn’s disease and maintain a healthy weight. Scientists don’t fully understand the implications of having a healthy gut biome, but we do know that the bacteria in our bodies help us digest our food, keep our weight down, use our brains more effectively and enjoy more restful sleep. It’s no wonder that vapers almost universally report that vaping has dramatically altered their lives for the better.
Vaping May Improve Your Self Confidence
Smoking rates in the United States are the lowest that they’ve ever been. We have vaping to thank for a large portion of that, and with less people than ever smoking, you may find that you’re the only person among your friends or coworkers who still smokes. Every day, you go through the ritual of washing your hands after every smoke break, using breath spray and dousing yourself with perfume. Nevertheless, you’re still worried about what others think of you. You know that smoking leaves a smell on your hands, hair and clothes that others hate. It also stinks up your car and yellows the walls and ceiling of your home. Everyone knows when they’ve entered the home of a smoker. How does that affect your self-esteem? Vaping has no characteristic scent except that of the e-liquid you use, and that scent disappears quickly. When you switch from smoking to vaping, it may have a dramatic effect on your self-image.
Vaping Helps You Reduce Your Nicotine Intake
Would you like to consume less nicotine and perhaps even stop using it entirely? Nicotine replacement therapies include plans to help you reduce and eliminate your nicotine consumption, but nicotine gums don’t provide the same kind of satisfaction that you get from vaping. Nicotine replacement therapies also don’t provide the same level of control that vaping provides. When you vape, you choose the nicotine strength of the e-liquid that you buy. Some common nicotine strengths include 0, 3, 6, 8, 12, 16 and 18 mg. If you lower the nicotine strength of your e-liquid gradually while puffing on your e-cigarette the same number of times per day, you can reduce your nico
