Many owners of the recently common vape boxes have transferred a tobacco smoking habit into something they consider more healthy – vaping. But is vaping more healthy, or is it actually worse than smoking?
Pros of using a vape box
So, what are some of the pros of using a vape box? One of the most commonly stated pros of using a vape box is that the traditional user is using it as a substitute for smoking traditional tobacco. Switching from a product that is very well known to cause cancer to something that has a seemingly smaller cancer risk is obviously a huge benefit. It also has much less of a second-hand component than traditional tobacco. And, although many places are starting to ban vape boxes inside, there are many establishments that will still allow you to vape inside – saving you from having to go outside to smoke. This is especially beneficial in the winter when it’s freezing cold outside! It’s much less harsh on your lungs to smoke from a vape box as well, as you don’t inhale nearly as much chemical byproduct into your lungs.
Cons of using a vape box
According to some recent studies, in some of the “juice” being used by common vape box users, there is formaldehyde present. Obviously, this is a huge concern. In fact, in these cases, using a vape box and the chemicals you are exposing yourself to can present a higher cancer risk than smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes. This is most commonly found in vape boxes that are considered “premium vaporizers,” where the nicotine or “juice” used is heated up with a heating element and then inhaled by the user. It is also only found in “high voltage” vape boxes. If you’re not an experienced user, quite a few of the vape boxes may be out of your price range and expertise level. Going shopping for a vape box without a knowledgeable friend can also be intimidating and result in you getting talked into buying more product than you need. Check here!!!
So, should you quit?
Overall, especially if you’re using a vape box as a transitional device between being a traditional tobacco smoker and a former smoker, there’s not enough concrete studies or facts out there to justify quitting due to safety risks. It’s definitely a personal choice but it’s always important to do your own research and evaluate your own risks. Personally, vaping is exciting and fun and more socially acceptable (and safer) than traditional tobacco smoking, plus you can get involved with an up and coming subculture and make new friends. Why not give it a shot at least and see if you like it?! You have nothing to lose.
Although the use of vape boxes can be controversial, choosing whether or not to continue is a personal choice. Make sure that you do the research and read all of the current studies before making your choice. Vape boxes aren’t for everyone!
