You’re winding down and getting ready for bed, but you know you need to get your nicotine fix before going off to dreamland. Rather than having to go outside to light up a cigarette, stay inside and just vape before bed. As you already know, vaping is a much better alternative to smoking for several reasons.
Particularly before going to bed, especially if you are going to bed with a non-smoker, vaping, unlike smoking a cigarette, will not leave you with bad breath. Cigarettes have heavy tar residue, which despite brushing your teeth, will still leave you with bad breath that your partner or bedmate won't enjoy. Vaping doesn't give you bad breath. Also, unless you're planning on showering, the smell of cigarettes sticks to your hair and body, while vapor does not.
Safety is among the most compelling reasons to vape rather than smoke cigarettes before bed, especially if you are smoking inside or in bed, or so tired you may fall asleep with a lit cigarette. When you vape before bed, there is no fear that you will accidentally dose off and drop the cigarette onto a flammable surface.
Another reason why vaping is a better alternative than smoking before going to bed is that when you vape, you can control just how much you want to vape. You can always put down and pick up a vaporizer without sacrificing flavor, or feel like you're wasting money if you only smoke half a cigarette.
Vaping can also be good for those who have heavy nicotine dependence because it allows you to intake more nicotine without having to light up more than one cigarette. This helps heavy smokers sleep through the night and not wake up craving a cigarette. Also, many vapers feel that they breathe better at night time if they stop using cigarettes a few hours before bed and switch to a vaporizer.
Furthermore, if you wake up in the middle of night with a nicotine craving, reach for a vaporizer rather than a cigarette. Doing so means you don't have to go outside or crowd around an open window. You can take a few puffs to let the middle of the night craving subside, and not get so much nicotine that your heart starts racing (nicotine does increase the heart rate).
Perhaps the best reasons to vape before bed rather than smoking a cigarette are the wonderful flavors and aromas. Many vapers find the taste and aroma to be very relaxing and calm inducing. Vaping can be aroma therapy and stress relief at the same time. There really is nothing like puffing out giant clouds of vapor before dozing off to sleep.
