Hello to all our customers,
Following our last post about Paypal no longer working with the vape industry, we are pleased to inform you that our payment terminal has been updated to accept Mastercards online. This means you can continue shopping in the same way as in our Galleries store. All major cards are now accepted through the online payment gateway, and your payments are fully secured.
This gateway has also been updated to permit CBD payments and therefore you can continue to click and collect or received deliveries of all CBD products again.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and loyalty whilst Mastercard was temporarily unavailable.
Take care and we look forward to seeing you on the other side.
From the Vapour Days team

Bristol will be allowed to reopen its vape shops inspite of being issued with a Tier 3 (a very high alert). This is positive for those needing vape products urgently and last minute, for example if you lose your kit or e liquids, or burn out a coil unexpectedly. However, it is still worth being mindful that we are in a very high alert environment with COVID rates being one of the highest in the UK as we write this post.Continue reading Reopening of Vape Shops in Bristol Amidst Tier 3 COVID-19 Restrictions
The truth of why some vapers succeed and others don’t is down to experience. Both the first and last experiences dictate how likely a smoker is to stick with the transition to vaping. A smoker entering a vape shop needs to have a great first experience and they need to be asked the right questions and given the best answers to suit their needs.
Investing in the best vaping kit for their needs will significantly increase their likelihood of success. Occasionally customers choose a ‘cheap kit to give it a go’. Inevitably they spend more money on a better kit later, or decide that ‘vaping isn’t for me’. Going for the best kit for their needs first time round gives a great chance of stopping smoking for good. Below is an interview with the owner of Vapour Days. He switched to vaping over 8 years ago and has sold vape products to customers through the Bristol shop since 2014.Continue reading A Passion For Vaping: An Interview With the Owner of Vapour Days
Introduction to Vaping Stigma
Our society has strong views on most new, unique or uncommon activities. Vaping is no exception. It is similar to the mobile stigma that came about when mobile phones were first launched. The media get sales based on shocking data or reports – and when things are so new to the market. It is easy to fool unsuspecting readers into thinking their stories are fact. Let’s have a look at some of the comments publicised in recent months and compare with the scientific data behind those stories. This post lets you see what the true story should state, without any stigmas associated.Continue reading Stigma Associated with Electronic Cigarettes, E Liquids and Vaping in General

We are all aware that there is a lot of information on the harsh consequences of smoking and passive smoking in the media, scientific research, knowing someone who’s died of smoking related disease… the list goes on. However, times have changed with COVID-19 and news announcements have highlighted that more people have reverted back to smoking, including those who had succeeded with quitting smoking through vaping. It’s important to remind ourselves of how destructive smoking is to us and our loved ones, through their passive smoking. Then let’s consider the research done on electronic cigarettes and we take a look at the recent video by the NHS which refers to vaping being the equivalent to our health as patches or gum. The below debate discusses how destructive smoking is to us. We also consider different e cigarette options that may be the tool needed to help you quit smoking for good.Continue reading Negative Consequences of Smoking and Smoking Around Your Family

Switching from Smoking to Vaping – Is This Still a Good Choice?
The Centre for Perioperative Care (CPOC) has made a clear statement that smokers should quit smoking to increase their health during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. There have also been some suggestions in the media that it is unclear whether vapers should also look to quit during this time. Ultimately, if you want to quit smoking by using electronic cigarettes then the Public Health England has repeatedly claimed that vaping is around 95% healthier for us than smoking. Therefore now is an excellent time to switch to vaping to increase your health outcomes.Continue reading Should I Give Up Vaping in light of the Coronavirus?
