With the cost of cigarette smoking skyrocketing year by year, forecasters say the next big thing could be the e-cigarette. This nifty little vaping device is getting so popular that it could spell doom for the tobacco industry.
Smokers switching to e-cigs to dodge death and taxes
When you consider what medical experts say about smoking, it is a wonder anyone ever takes up the habit. After all, the risk of deadly lung cancer is rather high if you indulge in a lifetime of puffing on cigarettes, pipes, and cigars.
Similarly, smoking is a pastime that nowadays costs a bomb, so once again it is surprising that people still take it up when it is so expensive.
By contrast, “vaping”, which is the latest smoking alternative, is neither dangerous nor expensive.
In the first place, e-cigarettes use water vapour rather than smoke to deliver the user the “hit” of nicotine he or she so craves. That means there is no health risk associated with the use of the e-cig.
