In the last year or so, Vape pods have become really popular in India. What exactly are vape pods? These are tiny pocket-size devices that contain a vaporizer coil, vape juice, and a small battery. Out of these pods, the JUUL has to be the most commonly used pod.
When these pods hit the market, they spread quickly through parts of South Bombay and the Suburbs. A lot of people who wanted to start vaping could now afford an alternative that was cheaper and much smaller than a conventional Vaping device! It was only a matter of time before the JUUL became a mainstream commodity and was available at a number of Paan Shops across the city.
When I asked a number of JUUL users why they preferred the electronic device, most of them said that they started using vape pods to quit smoking. While a lot of them actually quit smoking, they continue using the JUUL.
Technically, electronic vaping devices contain nicotine as well. And when a person is fighting an addiction, he isn’t fighting it against smoking, he is actually fighting it against nicotine! So if the JUUL is giving you a dose of Nicotine, you are still going to be addicted to it!
I decided to ask my friend Ashish about JUUL. Being a vaping enthusiast, Ashish said, “The JUUL is just a trend, and like all trends, its gonna die soon. Its always better to get a proper Vape Mod and tank. With a proper vape tank, you get to chose your own vape juice. So you can choose a particular flavour and the dosage of nicotine in the juice. you can gradually reduce the amount of nicotine you are consuming and it may eventually help you quit inhaling any sort of smoke or Vape.”
At the end of the day, it all depends on your will power to fight addiction, while you may quit smoking, you may be addicted to Vaping. A lot of products claim that they can help you fight addiction, you might actually be getting addicted to the so-called ‘Cure.’
