Find out the first benefits of switching from an analogue cigarette to vaping.

If you’re a smoker trying to kick the tobacco habit, chances are you’ve heard that switching to vaping can be very beneficial.

But is this true?

The answer is yes, and some benefits of this choice can be seen early on.

Are you curious to find out the most immediate benefits of an electronic cigarette?

Here are the three most obvious ones.

1 – Goodbye smoke damage … for healthy bronchi and lungs

If you have decided to stop smoking and switch to using an electronic cigarette, you will enjoy many benefits.

However, the first of all the benefits is undoubtedly the detoxification of the body from the harmful substances produced by combustion.

We all know that smoking is a very harmful condition, but most of us do not know to what extent.

To get a clearer idea of the matter, it will help to know that burning tobacco in analogue cigarettes produces more than 4000 dangerous substances, 70 of which are undoubtedly carcinogenic—a devastating scenario!

Among the best known harmful substances responsible for chronic pneumonia and many other circulatories and respiratory disorders are:

  • acetaldehyde
  • benzene,
  • nitric oxide,
  • cadmium,
  • lead,
  • mercury,
  • pyrene…

However, by substituting vaporised e-cigarette liquids for smoking, you can avoid coming into contact with these and many other very harmful substances, thereby improving your lung health in a very noticeable way!

First, the bronchial cilia, which had been rendered inactive by the effects of smoking, will begin to function correctly again. They will push the mucus covering the airways outwards thanks to their movement, triggering a cleansing process.

The purification of the respiratory system triggered by e-cigarette use not only allows the entire body to function correctly but is immediately noticeable in improved breathing.

After switching to vaping, ex-smokers can notice

  • The remarkable recovery of lung capacity: breathing will go from heavy and laboured to more natural, and even playing sports will become much easier;
  • A decrease in asthmatic crises and coughing attacks.

In a certain sense, we can say that the electronic cigarette cleanses the lungs of the accumulation of harmful substances produced by tobacco combustion and that this benefit can be seen from the very beginning.

2 – Recovery of sense of smell and taste

One of the most immediate benefits of switching to an electronic cigarette is undoubtedly recovering your sense of smell and taste.

If you are a smoker, you have probably realised that non-smokers have a much more developed perception of smell and taste than you do.

It is because prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke and all the harmful substances causes the sensory cells in the nose and the taste buds in the mouth to become irritated and damaged over time.

It is why jobs such as sommelier work require complete abstinence from smoking.

However, switching from smoking to vaping makes it possible to eliminate much of the damage caused by tobacco combustion and thus restore the body’s correct olfactory and taste function.

Usually, ex-smokers who have switched to e-cigarettes find that they can smell and taste much more intensely in the first period!

3 – Nicotine detoxification without withdrawal

The third of the immediate benefits of switching to e-cigarettes is undoubtedly the ability to kick the smoking habit without too many side effects.

While the human organism reacts with a series of unpleasant symptoms when suddenly quitting—ranging from irritability and nervousness to stomach cramps and dizziness (nicotine withdrawal syndrome)—switching from an analogue cigarette to vaping is a different matter.

The electronic cigarette is the best substitute for classic cigarettes, and there are several reasons for this:

  • It allows you to continue practising the usual gestures;
  • It will enable you to continue to feel the heat sensations of smoking;
  • It will enable you to continue to enjoy the taste and smell of tobacco (with tobacco liquids);
  • It allows you to dose nicotine;
  • It avoids having to suffer all the damage caused by the combustion process.

The electronic cigarette simulates the typical behaviours and sensations experienced by smokers. It, therefore, avoids having to change one’s habits too suddenly and excessively, but not only that, but it also allows one to detoxify from nicotine gradually.


There are both ready-made electronic cigarette liquids with nicotine and base liquids on the market, to which liquid nicotine can be added as desired.

If you opt for the latter solution, you can gradually reduce the dose of nicotine in your vape liquids so that your body gets used to taking less and less.

As time goes by, you will be able to use an electronic cigarette without nicotine, avoiding withdrawal symptoms and increasing your chances of getting rid of the analogue cigarette habit for good!
