Can An E Cigarette Really Help You To Quit Smoking?
Manufacturers of e cigarettes have made a lot of buzz about how these devices can help cigarette smokers quit their habit. But is this true? In this article, we will let you in on how e cigarettes actually work, who smokes them and what makes them better than tobacco cigarettes so that you can make a decision for yourself.
An electronic cigarette looks and feels just like a regular cigarette but instead of burning tobacco, you vaporize liquid nicotine. If you would look at an e-cig, you’ll see that it has three parts – a cartridge containing liquid nicotine, a vaporizing chamber to turn the liquid into vapor, and a battery to power the entire system.
The good thing about e cigarettes is that you don’t burn tar in the process or tobacco in the process. No tar content means you lessen your risk of contracting cancer and other smoking-related diseases. No tobacco means that that you won’t smell bad after using them. With e-cigs, you’re can also decide on your nicotine intake – low, regular or high. In short, when you have an apples-to-apples comparison on the risk to your health, e-cigarettes are really the lesser evil.
However, this doesn’t mean it will help you quit smoking. For us, quitting any kind of bad habit really depends on the will of the smoker, that is, if he or she is determined to replace the habit from one of smoking to that of vaping (it’s what e-cigarette smokers call their habit). As with anything in this world really, it’s not what you got, it’s how you use it. And you can use electronic cigarettes to help you quit your tobacco habit if you really want to.
All told, while their ability to help you quit smoking is debatable, there is no doubt that e-cigs are better for your health – people who vape know this for a fact, and it’s probably the reason why they’re very passionate about promoting their habit.
Aside from health reasons, another reason for using e-cigarettes is fun. By this we mean the many flavors that you can vape. Aside from the standard tobacco and menthol flavors, you can actually use cartridges in different flavors – fruit flavors, cinnamon, vanilla, and many, many more. If you want to know exactly how many flavors of e-cigarettes there are, just search online on Google.
There are many, many brands of e-cigs out there and, as can be expected, not all of them are created alike and there are brands that are better than others. Some e cig brands that consistently get high reviews are Blu and V2, although there are many, many more.
It’s important to take note that e-cigs can either be rechargeable or disposable. If you’re a heavy smoker and are not here to satisfy any smoking curiosity, buying a rechargeable pack right away is always better. Disposable e cigs typically last only a day or two.
