E cigarettes – Expensive and Dangerous?
Aren’t we all fascinated when we hear that something is expensive and dangerous? We want to look closer to see exactly what the fuss is all about. Looking closer at an electronic cigarette, holding it in my hands and trying it out, puffing on it for a while, I was not convinced. It did not seem expensive and dangerous to me. But, then, neither did tobacco cigarettes back when I started smoking them. We’ll address the issue of expense later.
First Things First About E cigarettes
First, it must be said, an electronic cigarette does not produce smoke. It produces a form of water vapor, which includes a certain level of nicotine, or no nicotine at all. This means an electronic cigarette can be used successfully to diminish or stop smoking. The nicotine is provided in a liquid solution of water, propylene glycol and flavoring additives. Propylene glycol is a form of mineral oil, a common component in many food and beauty products having very low toxicity, categorized as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) and being completely biodegradable. The flavoring additives found in liquid solutions for use in electronic cigarette vaporizers may be either natural or artificial in origin.
So far, except for the nicotine, the other ingredients may be found in normal food people eat everyday. That is why I say that using an electronic cigarette does not seem dangerous to me. The subject of nicotine is very controversial at the moment. I am not taking sides on the safety of nicotine use, but I am concentrating on the fact that a smoker can, in fact, reduce nicotine consumption to zero by using an electronic cigarette, if that is his or her desire. Reduction in nicotine consumption cannot hurt anyone, therefore it is not dangerous.
The Cost of E cigarettes
Now we should consider the subject of cost. Purchase of a premium electronic cigarette represents a considerably higher initial investment than one pack of tobacco cigarettes, it’s true. But any genuine smoker will confirm that it’s not the upfront costs that matter really, it’s the long-term costs. A premium electronic cigarette is designed with rechargeable batteries and comes equipped with a battery charger for wall outlets and also for computer USB ports. A simple and perhaps unfair generalization would be that avid smokers who invest in an electronic cigarette unit and use it often, progressing to the point where they concoct their own liquid solutions to suit their own personal preferences will very likely save money over the course of time. A social “party smoker” who just smokes occasionally while holding a drink in her other hand will probably not save money over the cost of a pack of cigarettes purchased once in a while. That just makes sense. And a smoker who wants to stop smoking can use an electronic cigarette to move in the direction of quitting smoking, which is virtually priceless.
I’m looking at this electronic cigarette in my hand and thinking that it certainly does not appear to be expensive and dangerous to me.
