Vapes or Cigarettes: What is the Difference?

The world today is filled with people that smoke. Most of them use vapes or e-cigarettes and 1 in every 20 people on the planet take part in this past time. A large majority of this part of the population are under 35 years old. Of course, with in this statistic there are those who still use traditional products such as cigarettes and cigars but with the rise of the vaping world they too may soon fade away. Amongst these numbers, 1 in 3 e-cigarette smokers are using it daily and a lot of these users tend to smoke more than they would if they were smoking traditional cigarettes. By now, we have probably all seen those commercials on t.v. that explain how many cigarettes equal one cartridge of nicotine.

Although it is always our choice to decide if we pick up smoking or not, sometimes life can bring along certain circumstances that make us feel as if we need that relief. It is clear that any of these kinds of products are not good for our health but some of us choose to do anyways because it brings a sense of calmness and relaxation to that person using the product.

Is Vaping A Good Alternative Over Cigarettes?

If you are a smoker and you do not plan to quit anytime soon, then vaping would be the best route to take for many reasons but keep in mind that it is all in moderation. Vaping can and will still cause health problems but truly can be the perfect alternative for those looking to slow down or slowly quit. There is no comparison between vapes and cigarettes but there are many between the types of vapes and vape products that are available in stores.

Which kind Of Device Should I Choose?

If you are in the market for a new smoking device then make sure you do your research before spending the money on something that may need to be replaced in a couple months. Instead, know what you want to purchase once you walk into your store of choice. Invest in a good battery… some can get way to hot to handle and these are usually amongst the cheaper choices. On the other end f the spectrum you will find much more effective devices such as the Vaporesso Luxe or Vaporesso Target Mini. These are products that will be sure to last you a long time and will leave you feeling as if you had invested in the right product. The higher end devices will cost you about $50-$100 but you will be happy.

What Are the Differences Between Nicotine Vapes and Smoking Cigarettes?

Do you know the differences that can happen by at least switching to vaping? No matter what, let’s be honest, nicotine is nicotine but there are advantages to your health. The most famous question of whether it is safer or not can be answered with a simple yes, it is. Cigarettes have about 7,000 toxic chemicals with in each stick. Vapes have nicotine that comes directly from an extraction of the tobacco plant but they also have the flavorings or e-juices that go along with it. We also do not yet know the effects of the juices on our bodies either but it cannot exactly be good for our health. The process of vaping has only been around for a short amount of time so to say we can properly determine what could happen to our health is unclear.

Also, keep in mind that using a vape can and will be just as addicting if not more addicting than smoking traditional cigarettes. It will be different for everyone but just remember that these vapes are handheld and can be smoked anywhere so it is much easier to smoke the day away as opposed to having to wait for that next cigarette break. So, imagine this, if the stats say each pod is just like smoking 40 cigarettes and you have access to puff on your vape whenever you want then it will be hitting your lips all day long. A cigarette break for the majority of people happens every hour or two, sometimes even longer.

Keep in mind…

Vapes have not been approved by the food and drug administration but can still be found in stores everywhere. In most people’s minds, this makes sense because smoking is bad for you but this did not stop them from approving cigarettes. The differences these days compared to the old days when it comes to the sale and purchasing of these items is that the vapes and e-juices are attracting younger and younger crowds. The devices have been made to look like things that can easily be passed off as something else. This means our teenagers of the world can and will have easier access to these products. The companies that promote these things seem to market the younger generations and they do this by naming these flavors after things that would attract children.

Some examples of what they are naming many of these e-juices are Unicorn Breath, Candy Crush, Blue Razz Lemonade, and Space Jam. These are just a few of the names too, so imagine yourself as a child and you see these items as you walk by. What would come to mind first? Most kids would think, “Yummy, Blue Razz Lemonade!” Let’s face it… it sounds amazing but it is not a drink.

No matter which end of the spectrum you may be on when it comes to vaping and smoking, if you are a daily nicotine user and have no plans to quit anytime soon, then remember to consider a device that will allow you to get your money worth. Investing in a higher end product will ensure that wallet does not hate you in the near future. Purchasing a new, cheaper battery or device will keep you purchasing them every few months or so. If you are going to spend $20 on something every time and find you had to purchase 3 or 4 of them in a year then know that buying one $50 vape will certainly last you through the whole year and then some without having to replace it.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
