How smoking affects your health (by Simon)

Affects of smoking by Simon at My Vape Box
Many e-cigarette users decide to make the switch from smoking either because of direct health issues or the worry of health problems in the future. For me personally, I was diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) over a decade ago. My lungs are badly damaged from 30 years of smoking, my lung capacity and functionality is essentially that of a very old man. I get breathless walking up hills especially. I am in no doubt that smoking has caused this, and I am in no doubt that switching to vaping has improved my health...

Why the vaping industry needs to be welcoming for all smokers

Vaping industry welcoming for smokers
Hi everyone, as the year starts to draw to a close I'd really like to reflect on a few things I've been thinking about lately. Something that has come as bit of a shock to me is the realisation that some people are being put off from trying vaping because of bad experiences, a perceived 'image' of what vaping is or simply that they didn't know that vaping was for them. Not because of inaccurate scare stories in the media or misinformation they've heard from friends, but because of elements of the vaping industry and community itself.

Which e-liquid nicotine strength should I get?

How to choose e-liquid nicotine strength

A simple question, but one that's not all that easy to answer without knowing the persons current smoking habits, how often they intend to vape, and on what e-cigarette device.

It's a commonly held belief that if you are a light smoker, or a social smoker, that you will only need a low strength e-liquid. And that if you are a heavy smoker you will need a high strength e-liquid. I've seen and heard that so many times it feels that it's become a generic response to the question and it's often stated in a way that suggests that it doesn't need further exploration or consideration. But this isn’t true...
