WHO World No Tobacco Day – May 31, 2018
Everybody knows that smoking tobacco is harmful to your health. Your doctor tells you, adverts from advocacy groups like Ash tell you. Even the packets your cigarettes come in tell you!
But even though we’re all warned about the dangers of tobacco, millions of people all over the world still smoke. And the World Health Organization (WHO) wants to do something about this.
Tobacco Breaks Hearts
On May 31st, 2018, the WHO will mark World No Tobacco Day. On this day, they will ask everyone who does smoke to avoid using or buying tobacco for 24 hours, in order to raise awareness of tobacco-related illnesses.
And while previous years have explained the harm tobacco does to your lungs, or the environment in general, 2018’s World No Tobacco Day is focusing on the world’s number one killer. Cardiovascular Disease (CVD).
Heart problems caused or made worse for tobacco kill millions every single year. In fact, tobacco-related heart attacks and strokes are two of the largest preventable causes of early death in the world.
So one day without tobacco will raise awareness. But the WHO don’t want to stop there. They want to end tobacco use all over the world.
But what if you like the taste? What if smoking’s your hobby? Well in that case Public Health England says that “vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco.” [source]
And 88 Vape says our tobacco flavoured vaping eliquids are tastier than any tar-filled cigarette.
Two Vaping Alternatives to Tobacco
Smoking is very expensive. And every year it gets even more expensive. But 88 Vape eliquids are far more affordable and (according to Public Health England) far less harmful.
So if you’re considering switching from cigarettes to ecigarettes and you want to choose a tobacco flavour, you’ll be happy to hear we’ve got you covered.
Our Rolling Leaf tobacco is a cornerstone of our £1 eliquid range, and it’s blended here in Manchester to replicate a roasted, nutty tobacco flavour in a smooth vape. Even better, this liquid can be used in any type of electronic cigarette, from a basic vape pen to a large mod or dripper.
But if you do have a mod kit, such as the 88 Vape mod starter kit, you’ll probably prefer a specialist mod eliquid. That’s where our smooth, tasty Blond Tobacco liquid comes in. It’s rich, it’s smoky, and it’s got no tar whatsoever.
Let’s Make Every Day “No Tobacco Day”
Whether you’re vaping as a hobby, or you’ve decided to try it as an alternative to traditional tobacco, 88 Vape is committed to helping you make every day “No Tobacco Day.”
We’re fully behind the World Health Organization’s anti-smoking campaign, and we hope that because of groups like the WHO, we’ll see the number of people killed by smoking each year begin to drop below the current rates of seven million people every 12 months.
If you’re a smoker, make today your first No Tobacco Day. And then try to make tomorrow your second.
