Quit Smoking with Electronic Cigarettes
Dangers of cigarette smoking has already been widely exposed to the public and this is the reason why many smokers want to quit but are unable to break the habit. And for many years now, many companies have done their part in innovating and manufacturing products that can possibly help smokers in their desire to stop smoking. Nicotine patches and gum have been made, and there are some who have used these products to help them quit smoking.
Electronic cigarettes, also known as s-cigarettes are the latest products to come out on the market. These devices look and feel like real cigarettes down to emitting artificial smoke or vapors. What is good is that they do not contain any tobacco. What users inhale is nicotine vapor which looks like smoke but without any of the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke which are harmful to the smokers and to those around him.
Nicotine liquid is contained in nicotine cartridge inside the electronic cigarettes. When the user inhales the device, a tiny battery powered atomizer turns a small amount of e-liquid into vapor. In seconds, you get a nicotine hit when you inhale the nicotine vapor unlike using patches or gum where you get the nicotine hit after a few minutes. And, in order to simulate a real cigarettes, a small LED light at the tip of the e-cigarette glows orange when the user inhales.
There are various strengths in these nicotine cartridges. If you buy major brands, you can find them selling full strength, half strength, and minimal strength. To help people quit smoking is the reason for the different nicotine strengths. As they get used to using electronic cigarettes, they can gradually reduce the strength they use until they reach zero nicotine level. You can now buy e-juices with zero nicotine content.
There are several advantages of electronic cigarettes over nicotine patches or gum. One is that the users have their nicotine hit much quicker than patches or gum. Electronic cigarettes are advantageous because it gives the user the same smoking experience that cigarette smokers have. The feeling of holding a cylindrical object and inhaling smoke is not possible with patches or gum. And that is why with patches and gum, smokers fail to quit smoking. The electronic cigarette emulates cigarette smoking even down to the smoke.
E-cigarettes are also beneficial from a financial perspective. Buying a set of five nicotine cartridges is like buying 500 sticks of cigarettes. The initial investment may be expensive but it will be cheaper in the long run.
You should be careful when you buy since there are a lot of imitations in the market today. These imitation e-cigarettes can be bought at half the price of a branded one.
