The study recorded lung function of participants before they switched from smoking to vaping.
Lung function was again monitored after a year. The participants were grouped into 3: those who quit completely, those who reduced their smoking, and those who failed to quit.
What the researchers noted was a big improvement in small, peripheral airway function for those who completely quit smoking by vaping.
Before the study, the most common symptoms the participants had were cough/phlegm and shortness of breath.
After the study, these symptoms were either completely eliminated or nearly gone for those who quit smoking through vaping.
Improvements were noted as well in those who reduced their smoking with vaping.
There was no improvement with those who kept smoking obviously.
Your lungs go through a lot when you smoke
The whole point of this article is that staying away from cigarettes greatly improves your lung functions which eventually improves your whole quality of life.
Vaping is the way to quit smoking
If you are having trouble quitting smoking, then take it from a former smoker who started at the tender age of 17, someone who once thought that cigarettes were an “inevitable evil” and something I had to live with for the rest of my life.
Vaping really works in getting you off the addiction of cigarettes. It’s the main reason why I came up with the idea for this blog.
If you can’t get off the cigarettes, then at least reduce how much you smoke with vaping. The study showed that reducing how much you smoke is still better than not quitting at all and you also get to experience the health improvements.
So going back to the study, yes we all know that vaping is the only way to quit smoking. It says so in the article:
“Scientists at the University College in London England found e-cigs containing nicotine can help smokers kick the habit because it gives them a similar experience to smoking actual cigarettes.”
That’s it! That’s basically why vaping is effective in getting smokers to quit smoking. It gives us a similar experience to smoking actual cigarettes. But I must say that vaping gives us a BETTER experience to actual smoking.
Some holes I see in the study
Now you all know I’m not a scholar, scientist, or any sort of person involved in the field of research and study. So the arguments I’m putting up here are based on common sense and my personal experience as a smoker turned vaper.
I just don’t get how the anti-vapers say, “If teens try vaping, they will try cigarettes.”
But they also say, “Teens like vaping over cigarettes because of the fruity and candy flavors.”
Two arguments to me are contradicting each other.
The logic to how teen vapers become smokers
Okay so based on what they say, what makes them think teens will start smoking cigarettes when teens don’t like cigarettes to begin with because of the flavor?
Has any of these anti-vapers ever formulated a more common-sense explanation to why vaping is so popular with teens?
Cigarettes taste like shit compared to vaping. This is a more sensible, in your face explanation I have of the vaping uprising happening now.
Comparing cigarettes to vaping is like comparing shit to steak. Which one would you rather eat?
Do millennial teens even want to try smoking?
What makes a teen change his mind one day and say:
“I think I’m getting tired of this blueberry muffin e-liquid I have. I’m not in the mood for a banana cream pie pancake vape either. I think I’ll buy me a cigarette. Yeah, because tobacco leaves taste better than any vape. And when I get tired of tobacco, I can always switch it up with some… menthol! Yeah, that’s what I’m gonna do, tobacco and menthol! Way better than vaping!”
