If you smoke a pack or two of cigarettes a day, you know just how fast the cost can add up. You also know the side effects of smoking those deadly cancer sticks. I bet you have tried everything from patches to gum to all kinds of weird stuff that never seems to help you quit. Until recently, there really hasn’t been a solution to help you quit the deadly habit. Electronic cigarettes are a recent invention that is causing a huge stir in the smoking community. That is because these devices are a healthier alternative to the traditional cancer causing cigarettes millions of people are used to smoking. Although they haven’t been around long enough to test for any long term side effects, there is no doubt that they will be a much healthier solution than their counterparts.
Electronic cigarettes are comprised of three parts. The atomizer, the battery, and the nicotine cartridge. The nicotine cartridge holds the nicotine solution that the user eventually will inhale. The battery powers the atomizer. The three components together combine to make a compact electronic cigarette. The realistic look of these devices and their similar taste of regular cigarettes are what is making them a big hit in the smoking community. The electronic cigarette is not designed to get you to stop smoking, is is designed to simulate the sensation of smoking without putting dozens of harmful chemicals into your body.
Electronic cigarettes are making it possible for people who have smoked for years to switch to using an electronic cigarette with relative ease. This is because it is an almost exact same taste you would get when you smoke a regular cigarette. When a user inhales on the electronic cigarette, it activates the atomizer which heats up the nicotine solution. The solution is then in vapor form which is inhaled into the mouth of the user. The user then exhales the vapor like they normally would smoke. The vapor evaporates quickly which leaves no lingering smell. There is also no risk of second hand smoke while using this product because no smoke is emitted at all. Although it looks like smoke, it is actually vapor, similar to that of a fog machine.
This new technology is now making it possible for people to get their nicotine fix in places that used to not allow smoking. The laws only regulate the use of products which contain tobacco. Since they don’t contain tobacco, you can enjoy them whenever and wherever you please.
Electronic cigarettes are also much cheaper to use than traditional tobacco cigarettes. The equivalent amount of cigarettes that one nicotine cartridge contains cost about 80 percent less. Not only will you be able to save money, you could also be saving your life. This is what is making the electronic cigarette extremely popular in it’s country of origin, China, and now throughout Europe. The trend is now reaching the United States. Keep an eye out for electronic cigarettes, that is if you can tell the difference between that and a regular cigarette.
