Vaping is becoming increasingly popular around the world with new flavors being introduced every day. Despite, a Metal band formed in Sweeden in 1998, is doing something pretty awesome in regard to the vaping industry.

This extremely talented group of hard-core, devoted vapers are using their fame and following to advance vaping as an alternative to smoking, and smoking cessation. They have previously given a sneak peak of their new E-Liquid, made possible by Vapemate, to their followers via Instagram and Twitter. Vapemate is a company in the U.K. who not only makes E-Liquids, but also provides electronic cigarettes and accessories as well. An E-Liquid is simply the fluid used in electronic cigarettes which gives them fuel. The band planned to release the unique E-Liquid accompanied by their (also new) album, Synergy, in July 2016.

Aspire, an electronic cigarette manufacturer has even designed an interesting, one-of-a-kind mechanical mod for the band. Despite has pictures of this posted on their Instagram page as well.

With the younger populations tend to be easily influenced, this is a great way to turn them away from smoking and toward an alternative. Additionally, most of those in younger generations want to do the same thing their role models are doing. By being easily influenced by their environment, along with raging hormones, teens and young adults are prone to make impulsive decisions. Sometimes this means taking on a bad habit, such as smoking. It is so easy to get caught up in listening to a great song and before you know it you are following this band on the media or social networks.

When you see them making certain decisions or practicing certain behaviors, it can be hard not to follow. Think about it this way: if you are a smoker yourself, think back to the time when you started. It was likely in your late teens or early twenties. This is a time in our lives when we are easily influenced, so it is important to have great role models, especially the cool metal band kind of influence. Despite is doing some really awesome things right now that most certainly deserve our attention.
