The Best Alternatives to Smoking Cigarettes

In the not-so-distant past, almost everyone smoked. Doctors even believed that smoking was beneficial to people.

In the past few decades, the medical world has discovered that the opposite is true. Smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes can be very bad for your health in the long run. This has led to stricter regulations and causes warning labels to be placed on these products.

When something you love and enjoy is hurting you, what are you to do? Thankfully there are options on the market that are safer. Some options will cause very little change to your day-to-day life.


Naturally, people started looking for an alternative to smoking. Vaping has recently grown in popularity and has helped to feel this demand in many areas. There is a vape shop in every town, and they provide their customers with a less dangerous alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes.

A vape is a small electrical box with a heating element. It has a tank to hold juice, a flavored liquid with nicotine that can be refilled, and a mouthpiece. The heating element causes the juice to turn to smoke that is inhaled through the mouthpiece.

A vape does produce way more smoke than a traditional cigarette, but the smoke is a lot less offensive and does not leave a scent once it dissipates. The scent it has when it is exhaled depends on the preferred flavor of juice the user smokes.

Juices for vapes come in every flavor you can imagine. You can have it taste like your favorite childhood treat, or you can pick a more traditional tobacco flavor. People enjoy building their vapes as there are customizations offered, and some people even have contests on doing tricks with the smoke.

Vapers have kind of become their community. Since most people go to the same shop to buy all their supplies, you grow relationships with the people you see every time you go. Most shops also have a lounge where people can spend time and even allow you to try new flavors before buying.

Hemp Cigarettes

There is an option reasonably new to the market that is packaged and smokes precisely like a traditional tobacco cigarette. The hemp cigarette looks and feels just like a tobacco cigarette.

The Hemp Cigarette has healthier ingredients than tobacco cigarettes and replaces the nicotine with CBD. CBD mimics the positive effect of nicotine. This gives people who enjoy traditional smoke a nicotine-free and healthier option.

CBD also has many other positive effects on you. It helps with anxiety, makes your hair shiny, helps with energy levels, and alleviates depression symptoms.

You can smoke hemp cigarettes, and no one will realize you even changed since they look identical. This is helpful if you don’t like how much attention a vape causes to be directed your way. Using the hemp cigarette is a way to make a healthy change in your life without discussing why you did it with everyone.

To wrap up, when you are looking for an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes, you have options. Take time and research the options available and decide the option that will work best for you. No matter the option you chose, you are making a step in the right direction.
