Those of us who have smoked cigarettes for years or even decades know that quitting is no simple task, even though we're aware of the financial and health benefits of doing so. We've tried the gum, patches, and going cold turkey, but nothing has been able to take our minds off the habit of putting a cigarette in our mouths and inhaling the smoke.

Fortunately, you might find that if all other quitting methods have failed, e-cigarettes could be the solution. Instead of breathing in smoke, the only thing you inhale and exhale when using an e-cig is water vapour, which is just one reason why most medical professionals agree that they're a healthier alternative to smoking real cigarettes.

However, people don't just switch to e-cigarettes to help them reduce their dependency on cigarettes. From saving money to reducing pollution, this article details the top five reasons why many smokers in Australia are switching to e-cigs.

  1. Be Kinder to Your Bank Account

Provided you buy a high-quality e-cigarette, all you need to do is replace the e liquid periodically to maintain your habit. Some estimates say that smokers could save $6,000 annually by switching to e-cigs, which is more than enough for a well-deserved getaway with the family.

  1. Give Your Taste Buds a Treat

There's nothing pleasant about the stale taste of smoke we experience on a morning after smoking a full pack of cigarettes. Nevertheless, most of us have a cigarette before we have a shower or eat breakfast. Fortunately, e-liquid is available in a broad range of flavours, meaning you can say goodbye to that all-familiar morning-after dry mouth.

  1. Give up Real Cigarettes

As mentioned above; e-cigarettes have helped thousands of people worldwide stop smoking real cigarettes for good. You can start by purchasing full strength e-liquid before buying nicotine-free e-liquid when you're ready to abstain. Plus, you can still maintain the habit of inhaling and exhaling a gas, which will help you avoid relapse in the future.

  1. Perceived Health Benefits

Even though there remains little long-term research on the effects of using e-cigarettes, most experts agree that they're likely healthier than real cigarettes based on the evidence so far. E-cigarettes only contain a fraction of the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, and there's no tar or real smoke.

  1. Help the Environment

According to various studies, cigarette butts are the most commonly littered item in the world, and the filters in them contain harmful chemicals that can damage waterways and local ecosystems. Plus, smokers emit as many greenhouse gases annually as half the world's vehicles. From what we currently know, it seems better for the environment to vape than to smoke.

Is Now the Time to Switch?

For the sake of your health, bank account, and the environment, it's certainly worth at least considering switching to e-cigarettes, which might just end up helping you quit nicotine for good. Plus, with a wide variety of flavours to choose from, you're bound to find something that's perfect for you.
