E-cigarettes were created in 2004 and, because of their interesting advantages, are becoming increasingly popular with the smoking crowd, as well as with those who want to use it as part of a tobacco replacement package. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of electronic cigarettes:
1. No ashes dropped on furniture and floors and no more holes burned in clothes, furniture, counter tops and car seats.
2. No smelly, dirty ashtrays. If you’ve had to clean the ashtrays in the office or at home you know how important this is.
3. No smoke filled rooms. When you smoke an E-cig you are working with vapor and are not exhaling smoke into a room for other people to inhale. Non-smokers will love you for that.
4. Clothes that smell clean, free of stale tobacco smoke odors. After using E-cigs you, too will find the smell of stale tobacco disgusting. Now you will know why some people avoided you when you were smoking tobacco products.
5. No more tobacco stains on your fingers and teeth. The stain will eventually be washed off of your skin and your teeth can be whitened can remain white.
6. No more stale tobacco breath making you much more “kissable.” Some say kissing a smoker is like kissing a dirty ashtray (who would want to do that?).
7. Can be used anywhere–even in “no-smoking” areas depending upon your local laws. Smoking is banned now citywide in some places. Some towns won’t even allow you to smoke outside. E-cigs can be used almost anywhere legally. No more sneaking around to have a puff or two.
8. Much less expensive. As the cost of and taxes on tobacco cigarettes climb higher and higher, E-cigarettes seem more and more economical.
9. The amount of nicotine can be controlled. If you want to use e cigarettes as part of a quit smoking plan you can gradually decrease the amount of nicotine you are receiving. It puts you in control of the amount of nicotine you receive.
10. E-cigs have none of the additives you get in a tobacco cigarette. Did you know that the U.S. government has approved almost 600 additives that cigarette manufacturers can put in their tobacco product? Do a Search for “additives in cigarettes.” You’ll find names you can’t pronounce and can’t identify. Scary, isn’t it?
11. Electronic cigarettes also come in interesting and tasty flavors. Flavors include blueberry, strawberry, mint, cappuccino, watermelon, vanilla and, yes, even tobacco and more. No boredom here.
12. You never need to search for matches or a lighter again. You simply recharge the battery on your computer’s USB port or in the wall or even in your car.
13. E-cigs put an end to cigarette mooching. If you’re a moocher, you won’t need to do that anymore. If you have a moocher in your group of friends you’ll no longer have anything he can mooch.
14. If you wake up at night craving a smoke and have to run to Circle K or 7 Eleven because you smoked the last one before you climbed in bed, you won’t have to do that anymore.
