It Is True; I Am An Idiot, nuts or just plain crazy still smoking regular cigarettes knowing everything I know!
You may think I am being harsh with myself but after reading this article, I am sure you will agree with me. To put it in simple and blunt words, I am an IDIOT. I smoke 2 to 3 packs of cigarettes a day and have done so for over 46 years. I know all the risks I am taking and I still smoke. I have graduate degrees from respected universities and I still smoke. I have had several friends and relatives die of cancer and I still smoke.
I am well aware of the dangers of smoking cigarettes
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, tobacco and smoking cigarettes is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, resulting in more than 443,000 deaths each year. Smoking cigarettes causes lung cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, emphysema and a variety of other illnesses. Cigarettes contain thousands of toxins and 69 known carcinogens. Smoking cigarettes is so insidious that even non-smokers are at risk from second hand smoke. In the United States, over 3000 non-smokers a year die from lung cancer from second hand smoke. Cigarettes are a time bomb waiting to go off and KILL someone.
So why do I continue to smoke cigarettes?
I continue to smoke cigarettes because nicotine, which is found in cigarettes, is more addictive than heroin according to the experts. I am not only an idiot but I am also an addicted slave to tobacco. Every time I have tried to quit, I have undergone a miserable number of days or weeks where I not only felt awful but I was basically unable to function. I have tried everything from cold turkey to pills to nicotine patches and then some. Everything I have tried has ended in failure because my every thought was dominated by a desire to smoke just one more cigarette.
Is it so hopeless that I might as well just give up, keep smoking and pray that I’m one of the lucky few smokers who lives to a ripe old age despite my tobacco addiction? Until recently, the answer might have been yes but now there is hope on the horizon in the form of a wonderful new device called the electronic or smokeless cigarette.
What makes the smokeless cigarette so different that I might actually think I have a chance to quit? Well it is the first product that can be used to help you quit smoking that not only provides you with a source of nicotine to replace the nicotine you get from cigarettes but it also provides a substitute for inhaling without actually burning anything. The carcinogens in cigarettes are created when you ignite and burn the tobacco. With the electronic cigarette, you inhale a harmless vapor with each drag. There is absolutely no tobacco in the smokeless cigarette and no flame or combustion is involved.
The electronic cigarette is a rechargeable, two part device made of high quality steel that looks just like a tobacco cigarette. The main section corresponds to the part of a cigarette that contains the tobacco. The main section contains a lithium ion battery and a micro chip. The second section of the electronic cigarette, which corresponds to the filter of a tobacco cigarette, is a replaceable cartridge containing the nicotine solution. Every time the user takes a drag on an electronic cigarette, the lithium ion battery in the main section gently heats the nicotine solution and the user gets a small, measured dose of nicotine in an inhale-able vapor. You duplicate the entire process of smoking a tobacco cigarette and satisfy not only your addiction to nicotine but the psychological habits of holding a cigarette and inhaling.
I am in the process of switching to an electronic cigarette. I bought my first one and a month’s supply of nicotine cartridges today and as soon as I finish my last 2 packs of cigarettes, I intend to switch over to the electronic cigarette. Instead of making a big deal of quitting and throwing away the remaining cigarettes, I am going to just pick up the electronic cigarette the first time I want a smoke after I run out of tobacco cigarettes and use it like nothing has changed. I will get my nicotine and even be able to inhale a harmless vapor to replace the smoke of my trusty cigarettes. Hopefully, in time I will be able to give up tobacco for good and ever, thus freeing myself from slavery and ending my long period of idiocy. I must say I finally have some hope thanks to the electronic cigarette.
