Vaping is not the new, exciting or new and weird hobby it was once considered to be (depending on your outlook). Vaping has now been around long enough for people to recognise it as being the beneficial alternative to tobacco smoking. Not only is it healthier, and more on that shortly, it is now so easy to access with vaping shops popping up all over. We look at why vaping shops, and vaping websites that offer advice, dedicated vaping blog posts, FAQ sections, special offers and face to face or phone support are helping smokers to quit smoking for good.
Vaping in the main has been attributed to helping hundreds of thousands of smokers quit since vaping became popular. It offers an enjoyable alternative that is at least 95% less harmful than smoking. That figure comes directly from the Public Health England who referred to vaping as such is their recent review. You might assume that the other 5% will fall into line one vaping studies have been run over a long enough period to tick that particular box. There are many parts of vaping that have been helpful in helping smokers to quit however, and one sector which doesn’t get enough credit for it are the front line vaping shops and online retailers.
Yes, vaping shops and online sellers are businesses that are there to make a profit. If, however, they are a reputable business they will also be looking to enhance their customer’s enjoyment and genuinely care about the vaping community and the need to support others in walking away from harmful tobacco smoking.
Getting Rid of Fake News
There is a lot of fake news out there in term of sensationalist headlines about how terrible vaping is, how every e cigarette is bound to blow up and of course how e liquids cause you to grow a second head.

A good business is built on authority, honesty and trust and so if you choose to speak to any of these about a vaping query you know that you’ll be receiving genuine information.
Vaping Retailers are Best Placed to Tell it as it is.
A vaping retailer knows what is in an e juice, what ingredients are used and what is not in an ejuice. They also know that tobacco cigarettes are filled with chemicals, many of which are classified as toxic by the World Health Organisation. Knowing the ins and outs of the smoking vs vaping debate, retailers are best placed to explain the pros and cons on both sides, offering a realistic overview of the benefits of switching to vaping and will be able to back up what they say with evidence.
TPD Savvy Retailers Know the Score
In May 2017 the TPD legislation was released in its current form. It imposed numerous restrictions on vaping, including reducing the nicotine strength allowed in a pre-mixed bottle of vaping juice. How does this help smokers? Well, short fill e liquids were born out of necessity, allowing heavy smokers to switch to vaping the higher nicotine strengths they are used to and give up smoking for good. This has been achieved by selling flavoured nicotine free e liquidnicotine free e liquidnicotine free e liquid alongside cost free nicotine shots in various strengths. By enabling this, adhering to TPD laws yet still facilitating a pleasurable vape for those looking to switch over, vaping retailers have once again found a way to support smokers in their quest to find a way to stub out their cigarettes for good.
