Let’s take a look at one of the most important things when it comes to smoking vs vaping and the on-going war between the two. There’s the cost factor. Let’s start off right away by stating that vaping probably does cost a bit more if you’re used to spending $10 every couple of days to make sure your smoking habit is well in check. People spend a ridiculous amount of money on cigarettes and that’s assuming you only spend $10 every couple of days which is what for smokers, one and a half packs? It depends on the state you’re in and what you smoke but everything my friends smoke costs $6 a pack.
Should you let the higher cost of vaping deter you from smoking? Definitely not. Vaping is an amazing experience and I highly recommend even if you don’t switch that you at least try it out. When you look at some start up vaping kits, they can cost you roughly around $50. Sure, they’re not the cheapest out there but we’ll talk about the long run versus the cost of smoking as well. Then, you have the cost of purchasing all of those e-juice products and the coil related products. Sure, it can add up relatively quickly but it’s a well worth it expense in the end for quite a few different reasons.
Now, let’s examine the cost of smoking real quick. When you look at people who smoke cigarettes and when they go to gas stations, they usually like to stare at the selection because they want to see the different pricing. Just in 2014 alone, the price of a cigarette pack could be anywhere from $5.25 to $13 in most states. That’s kind of insane for something that’ll last the addicted smoker a mere 30 minutes to an hour. Then, you have to factor in that there’s people who smoke multiple packs a day and while this takes a tremendous toll on their health both inside and out, it still doesn’t change the cost effect of their addiction. Do you know how much the average vaper spends a month? $200 freaking dollars.
You heard that right, just a mere $200. It’s really that low. So if you haven’t considered switching yet, maybe that new cost association will give you a boost. Not only that but let’s talk about the actual long term costs of smoking. Let’s talk about what smoking cigarettes really do to your body and the long term effects of them. Then, maybe you can tell me if they’re worth it or if maybe it’s time to kick the addiction to those unhealthy sticks and kick them to the curb for good.
There’s cancer which a lot of smokers (long term) have, there’s lung problems, sometimes smokers have their lungs turn black and they can’t move in any way shape or form like they used to be able to. This is the price people pay for smoking. They can’t quit but the cost of your life is far greater than a dollar amount.
