New To Vaping? – Vaping vs Smoking

What is Vaping?

Vaping is actually a word in the dictionary now so the definition is pretty easy to find! – Vaping is the use of an electronic cigarette, e-cigarette, e-cig, mod or any other variation of the word. Vaping has become one of the main alternatives to smoking. But to us – proper vape enthusiasts vaping means much more, vaping means making a U turn and switching from conventional tobacco cigarettes and choosing a much more healthier alternative. Free from the smell, the discolouration on objects, the severe impacts on your health – coughing, the impact on your family and much more… So vaping isn’t just a fad it is a pretty serious and to us (obvious) decision. We believe this so much that 6 years ago we started No Smoke Inn to try and help people make the switch and so Today here we are!

Why Switch to Vaping?

Every smoker doesn’t want to be a smoker, how many times have you contemplated the idea of quitting? But… some stresses or inconveniences get in the way? Well hopefully this article will convince you why you should start vaping!


Arsenic, Butane, Tar… Does that sound like something you want want to consume? Nah us neither. But all these chemicals are in your conventional tobacco cigarettes. E-Liquids are made from propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerine, nicotine (in various strengths or none at all) and flavour concentrates. 3-4 ingredients compared to the thousands in cigarettes.

Save Money

Cigarettes aren’t getting any cheaper. A pack of 20 premium cigarettes can cost you anything between £10-£15. – We quit so long ago that these prices seem ridiculous to us. The same cost you would be able to purchase a 60ml bottle of e-liquid that would last you potentially a week to maybe a few if you are using a smaller (MTL) electronic cigarette.


Tobacco cigarettes have mild differences in taste but in comparison to the variety of e-liquid available they are dwarfed, At No Smoke Inn we have multiple flavours from Tobacco to something extravagant like a delicious Manchester Tart.

“Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.”
