One of the great things about the shift from generation to generation are the changes which occur on the margins of society. It is for these people that the French use the term “avant garde”—the “advance guard,” ahead of everyone else in boldly heading in a new direction. Add to that the rise of hipster culture today, and it isn’t hard to see why vaping has begun to catch on across the world.
For those looking to join the first wave of vape enthusiasts, here is a quick look at what vaping is all about, as well as some of its benefits, especially when compared to traditional tobacco.
What is Vaping?
For the uninitiated, let’s get the obvious question out of the way—what is vaping, exactly? Simply put, vaping is a fresh new way of inhaling different scents while partaking in the new social and taste fad which has swept the globe. Younger generations, especially, have flocked to vaping as an alternative to other substances in general and tobacco in particular. This is due to a variety of factors—there is some evidence which might suggest vaping is healthier than traditional tobacco, vaping has a wider range of off-the-wall flavours than the standard tobacco taste, and vaping fluids and flavours tend to be more individualised than their mass corporate tobacco counterparts. Because of all these factors, vaping has come to stand as a way of distinguishing oneself as having a very certain attitude and identity. After all, for many, smoking has always been as much about the aesthetic and identity of it as the taste—the notion of being a creative individual, or a rebel, or someone with a casual approach to life. Between the individualised product and its comparative newness, vaping seeks to up-the-ante image-wise, causing vaping to appear as a bold new option for bold young people.
An Economical Option
Without a doubt, this past generation is characterised in large part by its response to the various economic woes with which it has been saddled. Indeed, it is in response to such calamities that the individual and personal resourcefulness have come to be prized even more, which in turn have come to be more associated with vape than tobacco. This is due in part to the economic advantage vape has on tobacco—namely, e-cigarettes are reusable, and vape fluids good for several vape sessions. Where you can go through several cigarettes in one go, the vape fluids and e-cigarettes offered by sites such as www.nucig.co.uk/ can last you far longer. What’s more, because e-cigarettes are reusable, they are also more particularly styled and given a more aesthetically distinct, pleasing appearance than the dull sameness of cigarettes. Moreover, because vape fluids come in different flavours, you can indulge all manner of different taste options for the same price as a few packs of cigarettes—all while getting more bang for your buck, and more vape for yourself.
Vaping has quickly established itself as the substance of choice among this generation, and looks to have a future as bold and varied as its many flavours.
