We all know that Cigarettes are unhealthy. They cause harm to those around you, and they smell terrible. Because of this, many developed countries have banned smoking indoors. I am sure that, if you are not a smoker yourself, you have at least one friend that would love to kick the habit, but never seems to be able to. Addiction to Nicotine, and the habit-forming act of smoking, are a powerful combination to overcome. However, a new option to fight this addiction has recently hit the market – Electronic Cigarettes.
Smoking an electronic cigarette is very similar to the experience of smoking a real cigarette. Users take a drag on this device just as they would with a normal cigarette, and then inhale vapor containing an adjustable amount of Nicotine. A cartridge containing liquid nicotine is vaporized by a battery-powered atomizer when the smoker inhales. Users can choose the amount of nicotine in each cartridge (0-16mg), and begin to reduce their dependence on the drug. An LED light glows at the end of the electronic cigarette, which gives the appearance of a real cigarette, and shows that the atomizer has been activated. Smokers can enjoy many different flavors, including vanilla, menthol, and Camel or Marlboro imitations.
All of this is designed to satisfy the habit formed around the act of smoking. The look, taste, and action of smoking are all attainable with an Electronic Cigarette. In addition, the chemical addiction to Nicotine is satisfied without inhaling the toxins in tobacco and other harmful additives in normal cigarettes. The exhaled vapor is odorless and harmless.
In addition to the health benefits, Electronic Cigarettes have other advantages. First, because the secondhand smoke is harmless, they can be used indoors, and in other locations where normal cigarettes are banned. That means no more going outside to smoke, or sitting in a room designated for smokers. Additionally, smoking an Electronic Cigarette regularly is likely to save users money. Especially in countries where tobacco products are heavily taxed, purchasing additional cartridges for an Electronic Cigarette is cheaper than purchasing packs of cigarettes. For those uninterested in quitting, this product is still far superior to normal cigarettes.
Whether you are hoping to finally quit smoking, or simply want to smoke without the annoyance and health risks of cigarettes, give an electronic cigarette a try.
