Is Vaping Safe in the UK? – Stoptober 2019

October 08, 2019

It’s time to set the record straight on vaping in the UK.

Recently of late vaping has got wide media coverage due to a lot of issues with vaping in the US, it seems to have a lot of people in the UK worried that vaping here is just as bad too, the outbreak has led to fears that the UK could also be affected, but this is the entire opposite of the truth.

Martin Dockrell, head of Tabacco Control at Public Health England, has drawn a line between vaping in the US and the UK. He said reports suggested that most cases in the US have been linked to people using illicit vaping fluid, bought on the streets or homemade, some containing cannabis products, like THC, or synthetic cannabinoids, like spice (a really bad substance for a blog another day).

“Unlike the US, all e-cigarette products in the UK are tightly regulated for quality and safety by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and they operate the yellow card scheme, encouraging vapers to report any bad experiences,” – Martin Dockrell


Unlike the US, the UK is very much stricter on what goes into the E-Liquids you smoke in fact the NHS are saying it is about 95% healthier alternative to smoking. Facts like these are hard to ignore, I myself have seen significant life changes from money to just general health (I am an asthmatic, this is by no means a recommendation to start vaping or smoking if you are an asthmatic).


So what are the key benefits?

It’s far safer than smoking

A study found that vaping is significantly safer than smoking, with significantly less harmful chemicals within them, and also showed that vapers that stop smoking are more likely to quit.

It’s cheaper

Vaping in general works out significantly cheaper than smoking, bringing along with it the benefit to save more money for the holidays abroad, a house, a new car the possibilities are endless.

No noxious odours

No more times when your other half moans that you stink of cigarettes, and no more second-hand smoking. One of the biggest advantages of vaping is that you and your environment won’t smell of smoke. Vaping may have an aroma from the flavours used, but it’s not the smoke from dead tobacco leaves! To some people, the smell of vapour is barely noticeable. Sometimes you might even get a few compliments on the aroma. Even if you vape tobacco flavours, it won’t smell like the rank fumes that come from burning tobacco leaves.



Flavours for every taste

When it comes to flavours, there are virtually endless options to choose in e-juice. There are also new flavours being created all the time, so you’ll never run out of new ones to try. Some of the more popular favourites include fruit, desserts, beverages, foods, menthol, and tobacco.
