How Electronic Cigarettes Can Help Quit Smoking
People today know the dangers of smoking cigarettes, and since that time that these dangers were widely exposed, a lot of smokers wanted to quit but found it difficult 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. The products that have come out in the market are nicotine patches and gum, and there are some smokers who have tried to quit by using these products.
Today, we find electronic cigarettes also made for the purpose of helping smokers quite the habit. These devices have the looks and feel of real cigarettes since they also emit artificial smoke or vapors. But, they do not actually contain any tobacco. Instead of smoke, users inhale nicotine vapor which do not contain any of the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke which is harmful to the smoker himself and the other people around him who can actually inhale the smoke too.
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. It takes much faster for a user to have a nicotine hit with electronic cigarettes than when using nicotine patches or gum. 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. Full strength, half strength, and minimal strength are available with many major brands. This was done so that they can help people quit smoking. There is zero nicotine level which you can reach by gradually lessening the strength of the nicointe contained in the e-juice. You can now buy e-juices with zero nicotine content.
Electronic cigarettes have more advantages than using nicotine patches or gum. As we have seen earlier, the nicotine hit is much faster in e-cigarettes than in patches or gum. And another more important advantage is that smokers will not miss the act of inhaling smoke from a cylindrical object. This feeling cannot be had with patches and gums. And that is why with patches and gum, smokers fail to quit smoking. Even down to the smoke, electronic cigarettes emulate cigarette smoking.
From a financial perspective, electronic cigarettes are also beneficial. What you can buy with five nicotine cartridges is 500 cigarette sticks. 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.
