Although the electronic cigarette has been around for quite some time, it has appeared to grow in popularity as of late. The industry itself has been around for several years, but it is still in the midst of a boom as companies compete to establish themselves. This means both good news and bad news for the growing number of consumers ready to purchase this still somewhat new product. nThere are different brands available, so there are options, which is always nice for the consumer. The flip side of having so many options is that you never know, at the beginning stages, what companies are going to have the longevity which comes from producing a superior product. This means that the consumer must be aware when choosing where to buy this product if they choose to do so. nWhy it’s the new trend?
Many people would say that collectively, the world is moving towards being more conscious in its actions. Individually, many people are taking a look at what type of impact they are having on the environment surrounding them. In a world that is concerned with global warming, going green and eating organic, it is no wonder the electronic cigarette is rising in popularity. nCelebrities were some of the first to catch on to the use of the e-cig; of course it didn’t take long for the rest of the population to catch on and turn to the smokeless cigarette as a viable option to replace the real thing. If there are ways that a person can change their lifestyle so their own health, the health of those around them, and the environment as a whole can be better, why not do it? The e-cigarette seems to be the answer many cigarette smokers were looking for. nEnjoyment without the guilt
The smokeless cigarette is marketed as a way to satiate the desire to light up, but minus the guilt. The smoke that traditionally comes with a real cigarette is supposedly replaced with a harmless water vapor that looks similar but is without the dangerous properties. In addition, there is no tobacco actually present in a smokeless cigarette. nYou do have the option of getting a liquid form of nicotine when using certain types of e-cigs, which is reportedly healthier than actually smoking the tobacco in cigarettes. Keep in mind that because the industry is so new, many of the qualifying research is still being done. There will be many years of research before it can truly be determined what the long-term benefits or dangers are related to this product. nWhether you are a person who is looking to replace your old cigarette with an e-cigarette or someone just using it to make the transition to becoming a nonsmoker a little easier, do your research. The exponential growth in the industry and, therefore, the availability of the product makes it clear this product will not be going away soon. If, however, you are planning to buy one, take time to talk to others who have used them before, search the internet, and do anything else that constitutes “due diligence”.
