I see a lot of people, mostly current smokers, asking how much does it cost to vape. So in this blog post and accompanying video...

We are halfway through 2015. Do you remember that New Year’s resolution about quitting cigarettes? How is that going for you?
Well, if you are still on that cancer stick, it’s never too late to renew that promise. Maybe you did give an attempt at quitting cigarettes, only to relapse. Does this sound familiar? You are not alone.
If you have a mom or grandma, daughter, aunt, niece, etc. that smokes or is trying to quit, this would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift!!
My husband just brought me home my new LOGIC Pro Advanced Vapor System so I thought I’d do a quick LOGIC Pro demo video.
Anybody that’s been following me knows that I am a big advocate of the LOGIC brand.
The decision to quit smoking is a great one, but many set impossible standards for themselves. If you think to yourself that you are never going to smoke from a certain day, chances are you will fail.
Smoking is a habit which is tremendously hard to get rid of at once, and therefore, gradually distancing yourself is the best option. Nicotine Replacement Therapy, popularly known as NRT, helps you do just that.
Actually, the amount of money you can save if you quit smoking depends on quite a few factors. So when people started using the “save money” reason for me to quit smoking, it just went in one ear and out the other.
Before you can say how much money you might save, you have to consider:
- Where you live. It might be cheaper down in the south than it is where you live.
- What brand of cigarettes you smoke. Most private label brands or “generics” are cheaper than name brands. But in recent years, some of the name brands have started to come down in price to compete with the generics, so the savings for quitting might differ.
And if you “roll your own” using pure tobacco and empty filtered papers, you may only be spending about $0.75 per pack, again, depending on where you live.
I did that for a few months before I quit smoking. So when people tried saying to me, but you can save so much money if you quit, $0.67 a pack was nothing, which is what it was costing me at the time to make my own.
- How much you smoke. If you smoke more than two packs a day, you’re going to save more money by quitting than someone who only smokes a half pack a day or less. And you’ll save less money by quitting than someone who smokes two or more packs a day.
Of course, there are more things to consider than this. You could save money on your health or life insurance, depending on if you’re buying your own insurance plans or you’re covered under an employer.
Yes, smokers can quit by using electronic cigarettes, but the manufacturers of e-cigarettes aren’t legally allowed to make those claims because the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) hasn’t done any tests to validate the claim.
But all you have to do is hit some forums or blogs about electronic cigarettes and read some testimonials yourself.
