Tobacco Politics – Can Vapor Harm Reduction Survive Government’s Love Of Cash
Rechargeable Electronic Cigarettes: A Modern Method To Quit Smoking For Good
Smoking cigarettes can be relaxing and is enjoyed by millions of people in the world, but it is also a leading causes of death and illness.
Those who do not cause themselves serious harm by smoking will likely experience lower than normal levels of health and a range of other disadvantages. It might seem bizarre to non-smokers that people would spend so much money on a habit that causes bad breath, stinking clothing, discolored fingers, disease, and even death. Unfortunately, smokers do not just enjoy tobacco, but are physically addicted to their cancer-causing hobby, and often feel helpless to quit.
It takes little effort to begin smoking but can involve decades of stress and wasted money to stop. It is little wonder why a product that can help people give up their addiction to tobacco is so desired by the public. Electronic cigarettes are one of these products and they have already helped countless people by giving them an easy and affordable way to finally give up tobacco forever.
At first the idea of an electronic cigarette might be confusing.
Yes, they are still called cigarettes but that is the main similarity – under the surface they aren’t similar at all. A traditional cigarette is simply a primitive way to deliver nicotine into the body, which is what gives smokers the calming feeling that they crave, but there are worse things that are also delievered with that nicotine. Because the tobacco is burnt and the smoke from it is drawn into the lungs, the negative effects are many.
An electronic cigarette using a completey different method to give the user their dose of nicotine, and it does not involve burning anything or inhaling smoke. Instead, a substance commonly known as ‘eliquid’ (a simple mixture of glycerine, food-grade additives and nicotine) is heated up by a small heating elelement within the electronic cigarette. This produces vapour, instead of smoke, which is drawn into the lungs and gives a feeling much like a regular cigarette. There is no tar being deposited in the lungs with an electronic cigarette, so extreme fits of coughing and many other ailments associated with tobacco smoke are no longer an issue.
After discovering what an electronic cigarette does, many wish to know how they work. The actual device is made up of several parts. There is a battery, which can be recharged and used many times, and this is attached to a part that holds the liquid and the heating element. The battery sends a charge to the element, and this allows the user to draw vapour from the end of the ecigarette. These devices are easy to use, no matter what the owner’s age or experience with technology.
Electronic cigarettes allow smokers to continue their habit while quitting tobacco at the same time. The act of smoking is simply replaced with what is called ‘vaping’, or ‘vaperizing’. A cylindrical object is still taken to the lips and a substance that is smoke-like is still inhaled. However, there is no guilt or fear of illness with ‘vaping’ electronic cigarettes. Another perk of using ‘ecigrattes’ over old-style cigarettes is that there are multitudes of different flavors to try.
In addition to poor health and physical side-effects, many smokers complain of the high price of smoking tobacco. Electronic cigarettes can save smokers unbelievable amounts of money, without forcing them to give up a habit that they love. It does not take long to realise how much money can be saved by giving up the habit of buying packs upon pack of cigarettes each week, only to burn them up and dispose of the remains. Electronic cigarettes can be used and reused, with the liquid being refilled and some minor parts being replaced periodically.
‘E-cigs’ are cheaper to operate than tobacco is to buy, but it also depends on how much a person uses.
A single, small bottle of nicotine liquid can last a person up to 2 weeks, even during heavy use. For those who ‘vape’ more casually, the cost will be even less. If the consumable products are bought in large quantities, the price will be even lower. Because these devices do not produce smoke, there is no issue with enjoying them inside or in a vehicle. The vapour creates a faint and fragrant scent and quickly dissipates, leaving no lingering stench at all.
