Electronic Cigarette – Cigarette Smoking without the Harmful Effects
As of now, there still is no easy way for people to stop smoking. Recently, an innovative device in the form of electronic cigarettes has been introduced and it is altering how people puff their cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes are quite a new invention but word about this device has spread like wildfire all around the world. It is because electronic cigarettes (otherwise electric or e-cigarettes) are very identical in function as well in taste to that of the traditional tobacco version. This type of cigarette is used in the same way as the regular variety, but you do not have to light it and its end does not burn as well.
The electronic cigarette has 3 parts — its atomizer, battery, and nicotine cartridge. Every time a user breathes in on its end, the battery sets the atomizer in motion. Once the atomizer is turned on, it then burns the nicotine content of the cartridge. The nicotine juice contains nicotine together with propylene glycol, which is a substance normally employed in fog devices. The e-cigarette works as much as a fog machine does.
When users inhale this nicotine vapor, it delivers an aroma and a sensation that is just like that of a usual cigarette, minus the lethal contents. The usual tobacco cigarettes come with thousands of elements that are found in products such as rat poison. These chemicals are what gets into the lungs and harms them. Recent progress in the field of micro-technology has designed the electronic cigarettes to be some device that does not contain any of those dangerous chemicals. This is supposedly some much healthier option.
Although an e-cigarette has not been at hand long enough for any thorough research to be done and its long-term results are yet to be identified, it looks like it is obviously a better alternative to using a product that has been identified as very harmful to people.
Financially, a smoker can save thousands of money with the electronic cigarettes. If you consume a pack of cigarettes on the average every day, you spend about $2,000 every year exclusively on cigarettes. The e-cigarette is cheaper by around 75 percent for the same number of puffs. That is roughly more than $1,000 savings when you decide to switch.
At the same time, you can smoke e-cigarettes anywhere you like. With smoking bans in America exclusive to the smoking of tobacco products, e-cigarette smokers are able to get their nicotine fix in bars, night clubs, as well even airplanes.
If you have yet to see an electronic cigarette and it is only now that you have heard about it, there is a great possibility that they will become as ordinary as their traditional counterpart before long because more and more smokers are now making the switch.
