Hello everyone, Mike Godwin´s here with another part of Vape Encyclopedia. Before we start, I want to ask every under-aged, children, non-adult etc. vaping isn´t for you. So don´t ask me anything, don´t communicate with me, I won´t answer you and I´ll get angry. Those, who are adult, and who has e-cigarette as a way of getting rid of cigarettes, or as a way of expensive hobby, welcome in this video. What am I gonna talk about? I wanted to talk about the right dosage of nicotine. But there´s one video of mine about this. But there´ll be video about it soon too, new one, but as a reaction to the incidents in US, the wave of panic, lies, and dezinformations, I decided to talk about this topic. So today it´s gonna be about advantages and disadvantages of vaping. Advantages and disadvantages – there´re lot of advantages. I´ll try to name them all. There´re only a few of disadvantages, but I´ll tell you lots of them. First advantage. Vaping is less harmful for your health than classic cigarettes. But it´s not healthier. I´ve been told and then I searched on the internet, that vaping is aprox. 95% less harmful than cigarettes. But I´ve been told, that this is wrong information caused by wrong calculation. It should be 99%. But I´ll be sceptical and I say that it´s 95%. What´s inside e-liquid?
Propylenglycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). These two things are common in health industry, food industry etc. and if they´re not burned at some really high temperatures, or voltage, there´s no problem then. If it would be burned at high temperatures or voltage, formaldehyde could show up and so on. But we have regulated devices, we´re normal and use it in normal voltage values. Next. Flavours – artificial or natural. I´m trying to avoid the artificial flavours because of asthma, naturals are great – macerates, extracts and so on. There shouldn´t be any problem. But there shouldn´t be any sugar in any way. If there must be any sweetener, it should be Stevia rebaudiana or something like it. Moving on. Nicotine. it´s a toxic substance, and it causes addiction, and as a former smokers of classic cigarettes, but we´re still smokers, we´re trying to get rid of this addiction. And that´s pretty much everything what´s inside e-liquid. Vaping isn´t healthy because you still putting something in your lungs. Lungs are for breathing only. Air and air humidity. We shouldn´t breathe smoke, vapor etc. So e-cigarette is fantasatic way how to quit smoking without any extreme risks. But non-smokers or children shouldn´t use it. It´s useless to cause addiction on it. Yes, we´ve started to smoke, we´ve been idiots, and now we want to get rid of it.
E-cigarette helps. But non-smokers should start with it. That´s all. Advantage no.2. Vaping has no ugly smell. Classic cigarette means smell, yellow walls, mess, stinking smoker etc. E-cigarette smells like the liquid. So it´s a nice smell.
Depends on the liquid. If I would use some really good and matured tobacco flavour, it could really stink. e.g. French Pipe from Liqua, it really stinks. But usually it smells nice. So if I entered the flat of vaper, I could fell what he vapes. If I enter flat of smoker, the ugly smell punch me in the face. Advantage no.3. I can control dosage of nicotine. Some doctors, probably from Phillip morris might tell you that you don´t have control of the dosage. But you can control it. You can feel if you´re sick from it, you can mix liquid by your own with your own dosage. In EU, maximally 20mg/ml is legal dosage. So there´re boosters of maximally 20mg/ml in 10ml bottles. You can adjust the nicotine strenght. It´s nonsense to vape 20mg/ml for DL. Of course there´re some mad mans who does that, but that´s their problem. But what I´m sayng is that you can control nicontine dosage. That means you can choose nicotine strenght you want, you can reduce it and next point is connected with it, you can control amount of steam. Because of resistance, or because of setting of the electronic, so now I have some power in.. And I can reduce it. 17W. It´s a half of it. You can control nicotine dosage, amount of steam, so you can choose exactly what you want. So it works like you want, and taste like you want it. Moving on to the taste. There´re many flavours on the market. But be careful with illegal aromates. If it doesn´t have license, registration or safety documents, don´t buy it. There are many legal flavours that has these documents, menthol, cakes, fruit and many more. You can choose what you want. So how the e-cigarette tastes like?
Exactly like you want. It´s mine e-cigarette, so it works by me, it taste like I want. So the questions about the best liquid is irrelevant. If you don´t like bananas, don´t use banana liquids. If I don´t like mango, and I don´t, do you think someone make me to vape mango? Because of the combination of all of this – nicotine dosage, amount of steam, flavour, here comes another advantage – quick satisfaction. Here I have device with almost no nicotine, it´s a chilling all day vaping, if I get angry, as a former smoker I´ll have abstinent symptoms, so there´s this mtl with more nicotice. And it satisfies me right away. Just few puffs and it´s enough, i don´t need more nicotine, than I needed. I don´t want more nicotine than I need. So quick satisfaction – it´s true. And 95% of people, who bought the right e-cigarette for them they can get rid of cigarettes right away, and they´re fine. Which is also great satisfaction. Next advantage – price. We like discounts, we like to save money, so the price is important. Vaping cost less than 1/3 of the price of cigarettes. If you are not someone, who needs every new high-end at home. I used to smoke 2 packs per day. So it would be around 3000$ per year. How many high-end devices I would have to buy, so I would pay so much money? A lot. It´s still cheaper. If i would be normal vaper, I would have 2, max. 3 devices, so it would cost around 500$ even with the tool, liquids etc. And I´m fine. The price difference is huge. It´s much cheaper than cigarettes. Until there´ll be taxes for vaping. But I hope they won´t. We´ve been amaterous with smoking when we started. But nobody asked at classic smoking… “Bro, I´m begginer, would you give me advice? Cigarettes with filter or without?” But everyone asks at vaping. If you have some basic e-cigarette, you don´t practically have to take care about anything. Just remove topcap, fill it and close it. If you would need to know something, look at the manual. if you would need more info, ask in the shop where you bought it. They´ll show you, tell you and explain you how to something. But still there´re these types of question, e.g. how to open a bottle. You don´t have to say, you´re begginer. Because you don´t ahve to know pretty much anything at basic devices, here comes another advantage. plenty of devices on the market. Not only many of flavours, but also there´s plenty of devices. So you can pick anything you want. Size, power, design, anything you want. Your head has to tell you that will be good. If you´re satisfied with it, you won´t miss the cigarette. There´s no problem to get rid of the physical addiction on nicotine, the main problem, according to doctors, are the psychological addictions. That you have something in hand, and so on. It´s the rituals – psychological addiction. You watch at cigarette how does it go away, you can watch liquid amout in e-cigarette, that could help. Every psychological addiction must be satisfied by the e-cigarette. If not, it would be bad. If you miss something, you should take a look at some other device, that would satisfy you. Be careful to not throw them away like you did it with cigarettes, 100$ gone away. So you can choose the device you want. Let´s go to disadvantages of vaping. Let´s start with the last thing I´ve talk about. There´s plenty of devices, liquids, aromas on the market, It could be also disadvantage. It´s too many of it, so you don´t have to know what to choose. So you need advice. But don´t start with “hello, I´m begginer.” “and I need the best vape for max. 20$” isn´t a good question. I hope you know why. You had enough money for cigarettes, and now you want something for 20$? You have to save too much? But we like discounts and low prices. But on the other hand, it´s your health, you want to be healthy, you wanna get rid of risk of cancer… So buy something, what will satisfy you. So the disadvantage become advantage. So if there´s plenty of devices on the market, jsut use internet, so you could decide. So look for info, and after that you can ask, but the question is the last step. Next major disadvantage of vaping these are BF60 and BF80 Dicodes chips… you´ll become a fan of technology because of vaping. Your teacher tried to learn you what is the integral, basic programming in Basic, what´s the reaction of water and acid, and you have been shit on it. Now you´re vaper and you know terminology, technology, experimenting with wires, resistance, voltage, so now you know everything.. What you have to have, what are you interested in, every news etc. And you´re stucked in there. Is it disadvantage? Depends. Next thing is connected with it. Accumulated price of devices that you have in home. Is it disadvantage? Depends. For someone who has a high pay rate it´s not a disadvantage. Someone who just start working for low money, it could be disadvantage. That´s why he wants to buy something cheap. You can have milion in vape. The disadvantage of it is that the money doesn´t move. But on the other hand, if I would smoked half of an milion, could I sell the roaches? Probably not. But if I would want to quit vaping, I could sell it and my money would be back, at least from its part. But these types of atomizers or mods, which are high end or in limited editions could earn me more money after some time. So this point is moving from advantage and disadvantage. What´s the prime disadvantage, you still have nicotine addiction. But is it disadvantage if I can regulate the dosage? If I wanted to reduce nicotine at cigarettes, I would have to smoke less and less. And to be honest, which one of you ever smoked only 2 cigarettes per day? If you smoked 1 pack a day or more? It´s almost impossible.
I´ve been capable to go at 2 a.m. to nonstop bar and buy a pack because I found out, that I have only 4 cigarettes left. Now if i go out without vape, “I´ll be back in 3 hours, but I can do it.” So the addiction on nicotice is disadvantage, but on the other hand I can regulate the dosage, so I can get rid of this addiction. So is it really disadvantage? You decide. Unknown health risks. It´s everywhere, vaping destroys blood circulation, I vape for 10 years and nothing. I´m 42 years old. Vaping affects brain function. Of course it does. There´s nicotine. But if you won´t overdose yourself, it´s ok. Vaping kills. If you´re idiot, even spoon can kill you. There´re lots of car crashes and they are sometimes lethal, but does the car kills? I think it´s the driver. There´re lots of suicides, but does the guns itself kills? There´s human again. And in vaping it´s the same. The man has to do the wrong step so the accident happened. If you would vape illegal liquids, yes, there´s this risk. Unknown substances etc. But I have my results from spirometry, and many more results, some results from studies from UK and so on. I don´t like results from US studies, they´re paid by Phillip Morris. Someone from US just said this, I don´t know his name… Vaping is better than smoking. So what? And that´s why there´s ban for fruit liquids in US and so on. That´s something from the biggest democratic republic in a world? So we have these titles in news. But it´s not about us. We, the vapers, can search the true data.
But what about other people? When your friends tell you that you are gonna die… “Go back to cigarettes, you´ll die, I like you man, I don´t want you to die…” “Calm down bro, what are you doing?” “You´ll smoke here and I´m gonna die for vaping?” “The cigarettes are better than vaping, man, I like you, stop vaping, please!” “Have you got joint or something?” Titles in news affecting the public. Television, newspapers, facebook etc. are messing with heads of the public. It´s like Don Quijote nad the wind mills. If we´ll stick together, we´ll win. Don Quijote couldn´t win, but we can. The bad thing is , that you´re treated like a smoker or worse. It´s the situation – “it´s worse than cigarettes.” Everywhere is banned to vape because cape is clasified as tobacco product, but it´s not. It´s not tobacco product. We only use separeted nicotine, we don´t smoke. There´s no passive smoking effect. I´m angry because of it. Vaping is on the same level as cigarettes. There´s no death caused by vaping in Czech Republic. But there´re deaths because of smoking. Milions. But vaping is on the same level. In UK it´s a better situation. Doctor will advice you to start vaping if you want to get rid of cigarettes. Even you get a recipe and get a basic e-cigarette for free. But not in here. We are like smokers, people think of us as a smokers, sometimes worse. I don´t like it. But I have better lungs now, blood circuit, blood preasure and so on. They didn´t come right away, but after some time. So I ask the public, don´t make us the same as smokers. We´re different. Thank you. We´ve quit smoking. This is not a smoke, it´s a vapor, and we don´t burn anything. So there´s no risk of cancer. The problems starts, if the government join this fight, like US now. US have this philosophy – smoking is better, because we have a profit on it. So there´s banning of vaping, and they start to think, that´s the worse thing in the world. And another thing is related to this. US bans and so on, let´s start with that. Here in Europe we have some regulations too. TPD, smaller packages, smaller capacities, sure, the market is more safe. Ok, we don´t want to read those titles. But the people who died didn´t die because of vaping. The problem is , in those cases, that they used illegal THC, diluted in oils. The only disadvantage of vaping, and that´s really minus, is vaping of under-aged. It´s a lethal weapon in US. Fight with vaping of under-aged. Donald Trump: “We can´t let our children to vape.” What if parents started to parenting? What if parents would care about their children and explain them everything? No state or institution can supply parents. The children are the most used argument. If you don´t have more arguments, use “there´s children, have anyone thought about children?”
No, I didn´t. Parents should think about their children, and the market has to be set in the right order so children couldn´t buy it. Vaping on under-aged is a problem because there´re some idiots who sell it to them. I don´t mean the older classmates, that´s for the spanking and edification. I mean sellers. There should be sanctions for that. So the shop would perish for it. I don´t talk about older classmate, that deserves only a spank. It´s not responsibble, so there should be edification. School should warn them properly. PArents should warn them. But it doesn´t happening. So children thinks that vaping is cool, that´s ok. And here comes the problem. Vaping of children. But the percentile isn´t that high. There´s argument – “I would rather see kid with vape than with a cigarette.” That´s not argument. The choice between bigger or smaller evil isn´t argument. That´s just looking for excuses. I would rather seen parents who cares about their children, instead of giving them phone and “don´t border me, go play something..” go out with them, play footbal, and so on. Just be with them. It´s time for parents to start parenting. So if you´re parent, care about your children, Give them you time. Don´t let social media and so on to supply parental love. Raise your children with some values. It´s all about that. Then there won´t be the bans. You know how the prohibion of alcohol ended? It could end the same with vaping. Because of children they ban almost anything. If you would know, and you know it, what can be found on the internet, tha vaping would be the smallest problem. But still it´s not good for children to vape. Smoking, vaping or anything does not worth the addiction. You´ll find out when you will be older. In 16, you think how cool is to vape, how the girls will hit on you… you make the steam, and you are so cool, and the girl will want you, the one with blond hairs, and she´ll kiss you, or she f.cks you or you I f.ck her…
Bullshit. Cool is something else. But it comes with the age. It´s cool to have fancy glasses, be famous on Youtube, and be an icon. Just a joke. Vaping isn´t cool. It´s cool until you get rid of cigarettes and addiction. But it´s not cool to start with it, if you don ´t have a good reason. Or you want to make tricks? After 2 months you won´t be able to make a single trick but you are addicted to vaping. That´s all for today, it´s very long video, I hope you liked it. Please, give me like, subscsribe, share it, I´ll be happy for it. Don´t forget to ring the bell so you wouldn´t miss any video of mine, check the description, there´re some useful links, and have a nice morning, noon, evening, depends on which time you watch this video. Enjoy life, coddle yourself, think, don´t smoke, and be cool. See you!
