The Vaping Revolution Continues
Based on the data revealed by the Centers for Disease Control and Development (CDC), the smoking rate in the US has dropped to an all-time low. Meanwhile, the number of Americans vaping remains steady.
Cigarette Smokers Raise the White Flag
The CDC shares that the rate of smoking usually drops by one percent annually. However, the numbers plummeted from 17 to 15 percent in 2015. The two percent drop from 1992 to 1993 was the largest decline recorded, as the usual decline is around 1.5 percent.
Smokers pay significantly increased taxes on cigarettes compared with other items. Partly because of this, the addictive habit costs them around USD 7,300 to USD 11,000 yearly.
Vapers Celebrate Victory
This year, a Reuters poll revealed that 9,766 adult Americans (10%) are still vaping and the number remains at its peak. According to the poll, the figure remains constant the previous year, despite negative headlines surrounding the vaping community. Wells Fargo Securities expect U.S. sales to soar up to USD 4.1 billion this year.
Additionally, more than half of the vapers surveyed were encouraged by families to use the vaping method. One such example is Sarah Morris, a mental health counselor from Oklahoma, who shared that she began using e-cigarettes to assist her in quitting smoking.
In the UK, smokers are persuaded to shift to e-cigarettes as they are considered 95% less dangerous than tobacco. Though they might still have nicotine, e-cigarettes don’t contain the other 3,999 hazardous substances. The idea is that smokers use the device to quit by lowering the doses of nicotine in the e-juice.
E-cigarettes are less expensive when compared to regular cigarettes. A week’s supply of the e-juice only costs $10 to $20, which totals to around USD 1,000 annually. The device is not only easier on your health, it is also easier on your budget.
