    Will there be more vaping restrictions?

    In 2017, the vaping industry faced its biggest challenge; The Tobacco Products Directive.

    Restrictions to trade, packaging and products on the market proved to be a point of contention between vapers and the government, but UK vapers were quick to adjust to the new rules.

    However, despite widespread compliance and the promise that no further changes would come into effect, it seems that TPD isn't done with us just yet.

    CEO Anthony Mixides represents UK vapers with Hugo Rittson Thomas exhibition

    The UK vaping scene is already having a significant impact on the smoking industry and the way in which the public has grown to value their health. But the future is even brighter.

    The success of vaping prompts an important question, primarily regarding how the UK of the near future will integrate alternative tobacco products. The UK has introduced lenient, and generally liberal, controls with regards to the industry, avoiding the strict legislation that other governments have seen fit to implement.

    The public has responded to vaping extremely positively, leading to the introduction of new sub-cultures and social identities. With this, it looks like vaping is here to stay.

  11. Smoke or Save?

    Smoke or Save?

    Smoking is a burden in more ways than you may think. Despite the obvious health risks, many of us can underestimate the cost of smoking, and how much it eats into our cash reserves over the course of a year.

    The average UK smoker uses around 10-20 cigarettes a day, with each pack of 20 costing up to £11. In a year this adds up, hitting an estimated spend of around £3500 per annum. That's one hell of a lot of money!

  14. Vaping and the new smoking culture

    Vaping and the new smoking culture

    The smoking culture is one of those dirty little terms that follows around users of tobacco products. Socialised smoking, smoking areas and other day to day realities of being a smoker often walk hand in hand with accusations of antisocial behaviour and less than favourable representations.

    But then came vaping, a healthier alternative to smoking, which manages to trade off the negative aspects of smoking without reducing the satisfaction. But does the negative stigma attributed to smokers carry over to vapers?

    Well, that is the definition of a yes/no question.
