Menthol Ban Sees Vaping Increase in Popularity
The ban of the sale of menthol cigarettes in May 2020 came as something of a shock for many people. Most smokers did not think it would happen, but it is now illegal to sell or smoke menthol cigarettes or rolling tobacco containing menthol in the UK. The thinking behind the ban was to try and discourage younger smokers from taking up the habit, as the menthol taste hides the harshness of nicotine. However, the good news is that in the vaping industry menthol is still allowed as a flavouring in any of our e-liquids.
A Tool to Quit
While it may have stung a little to find that your favourite menthol cigarettes are no longer allowed you could look at this as an opportunity to quit smoking. Many different studies have proved that vaping is a safer alternative and can be used as a crutch to give up the smokes. the best tobacco industry has long been something governments across the world have pushed for and this is another step towards their demise.
With vaping the nicotine content can be easily varied so you can start with something akin to smoking and gradually reduce the amount of nicotine until you are no longer taking in this chemical. Even with vaping, nicotine is not good for the lungs so developing a cloud habit with many different amazing tasting e-liquids that do not contain this harsh drug is the way to go. Of course, it's still not great for underage people to vape and it is something we discourage, and the industry takes seriously. But for people over the age of 18 who were reluctant to say goodbye to menthol cigarettes, vaping could be the alternative you've been looking for.
