Seniors who smoke may be “set in their ways” when it comes to choice cigarette brands. Truth is, many senior smokers are on fixed incomes. Budgeting for a carton of their usual cigarette brand often means swapping money from another budgeted item. Spending large amounts of money on a long-term smoking habit isn’t smart when other alternatives are available.
An electronic cigarette is less expensive than a carton of traditional cigarettes, and it offers seniors an affordable alternative in continuing their smoking habit via vaping. E-cigarettes are personalized smoking products; strengths of nicotine are varied and they come in a variety of flavors. Seniors may choose a tobacco or menthol e-cig flavor by closely matching the flavor of their long term smokes.
E-cigarettes allow the senior consumer to take control of their smoking habit rather than cigarette manufacturers determining changes to their fixed income budgets.
A senior may balk at the e-cig alternative. They may see millennials vaping rather than smoking, often using cumbersome gadgets, and then hesitate to join the vaping crowd. A misconception of the vaping population often prevents seniors from taking the step to better affordable alternatives to smoking.
Vaping is not an age related activity, as they’ll be surprised at the number of folks 50 and over who decided to make the switch to vaping, not only for the better price, but also for the lower amount of carcinogens found in these products.
Many see the lack of tars as a plus when choosing to vape as well.
Now, speaking of vaping “gadgets, how do seniors feel about them? Many appear to be extremely difficult to use and are often intimidating to seniors.
