Vaping is taking the world by storm. As a pleasurable pursuit, it is one of the ways we relax during our leisure time. Obtaining the vaporizers has never been easier with their availability online. A cartridge can easily be obtained to maintain the regular supply of your preferred aroma. An aroma those around you will know you for. You might say that it is trending like the new perfume. Vaping in the company of others is like comparing colognes or perfumes.
So, to inform us more about vaping, we shall consider its history and how this popular pastime began.
Beginnings of Vaping
In 1963 the first electronic cigarette was patented by Herbert A. Gilbert. It was given the U.S. patent number 3,200,819. He was the first to invent the smokeless non-tobacco cigarette.
The history of the e-cigarette, as we know it today did not begin until a Chinese smoker and pharmacist invented it in 2003. The man responsible is Hon Lik. He would smoke up to three packs of cigarettes per day and has said that he was “galvanized” to have invented a new device following the death of his father to lung cancer. He was also a heavy smoker.
So, this is a heartening story that stresses the benefits of vaporizers when it comes to enjoying a puff healthily. China was a country where 60 percent of men smoked and so there was a great demand for a device that improved their health without taking away their pleasures.
Growing Popularity of Vaping
Since the introduction of e-cigarettes to the market in 2003, their use has risen dramatically. For example, there were 7 million adult e-cigarette users globally enjoying a puff. This would then rise to 41 million in 2018 and then 68 million in 2020. This is compared to 1.1 billion people smoking traditional cigarettes. So, proportion-wise and in terms of growth, this is a phenomenal result and achievement for the vaping industry and the health sector. More people are improving their health from the switch to e-cigarettes or vaporizers, as they are also termed.
The future of vaping is now clearly established. They are seen as a healthy alternative to smoking tobacco. They are freely available and being used by lots of people, so are seen as an okay thing to do. You will not, for this reason, feel out of place when you are vaping. You will blend in with the crowd in that way. The forever-increasing choice of fragrances will keep these devices popular. They have this edge over traditional cigarettes in the choice they provide. If you do not like the smell of a particular fragrance, then you can easily buy a different cartridge and aroma.
To conclude, the history of e-cigarettes or vaporizers as we know them today is not all that long. Their 2003 design, with health in mind, was marketed as the alternative to a cigarette that contained potentially harmful chemicals. The vapours produced are the healthier alternative for the user and all those around them. They are, therefore, seen as more socially acceptable in a range of environments. We all want to feel accepted and vaping is seen as something that is. We can meet new friends who share a passion for it and discuss the different options and aromas available. The devices are, after all, designed with the user in mind and will develop according to demand, just as new flavours will be produced to satisfy changing preferences over time. Long may it be possible to vape to help us relax and feel calm while going about our daily activities.
