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.

Electronic cigarettes although they haven’t been around very long, they have already caused controversy across the globe
Electronic Cigarettes were introduced in China in 2004 by Ruyan Group Holdings, also known as the Golden Dragon Group, the original electronic cigarette company which has prevailed in several international lawsuits since the introduction of their patented innovative ultrasonic atomizing technology. Ruyan means “almost like smoke” and indeed it is. Atomizing vaporizers create water vapor that simulates smoke, and offers numerous advantages over normal tobacco for dedicated smokers. Several other Chinese engineers followed up on inventor Hon Lik’s patent for Ruyan electronic cigarette company, and new innovations crop up constantly. Smokers love their habit, and fans of electronic cigarettes love their new, improved habit.
Smoke Or Vapor With Electronic Cigarettes
So, what’s to love about yet another electronic device to complicate our lives? Ask a fan of electronic cigarettes and you may get a long, passionate response, which starts with all the advantages of vaping. That’s what it’s called – vaping. It’s not smoke, it’s vapor, so it’s not called smoking, it’s called vaping. In actual use, each drag on the electronic cigarettes causes their atomizers to heat up a special liquid, creating steam or vapor. Atomizers operate on a rechargeable battery, a very small one, which means the unit requires frequent charging. But plugging in is not even a slight deterrent to passionate users of electronic cigarettes.
The Facts About Electronic Cigarettes
First of all, electronic cigarettes do not involve tobacco, which means none of the thousands of toxic substances inherent in tobacco smoke inhaled by traditional tobacco smokers are present. No actual smoke also means there is no second-hand smoke, so everybody in the car or in the room isn’t breathing toxic smoke either. Aficionados of electronic cigarettes will tell you that they are choosing their new habit or hobby because it is safer and healthier than regular cigarettes, for themselves and for others.
Second, electronic cigarettes vaporize a liquid composed primarily of five to ten ingredients generally recognized as safe for human consumption, which list may or may not include nicotine. In other words, users can purchase prepared liquids from an enormous menu selection of different nicotine concentrations, or no nicotine at all, flavored with almost anything, including tobacco, chocolate, coffee, strawberry and coconut. And that’s just for starters. If you think there are a lot of coffee flavors available these days, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve been exposed to the long list flavorings available for electronic cigarettes. It’s almost incomprehensible. So that means it’s possible to enjoy electronic cigarettes that actually taste good to you, while controlling, reducing or even eliminating your nicotine intake. Are you starting to see the draw?
Finally, it’s probably no surprise that the largest population of people using electronic cigarettes is over the age of forty. Smokers who are beginning to admit that tobacco smoke is taking a toll on their personal health as well as the health of others are more likely to get excited about choosing amongst the many brands of electronic cigarettes and the mind-boggling menu of liquid options. And they are more likely to make the initial investment of $50, a bare minimum for the unit itself, which doesn’t include a variety pack of flavored liquids. Part of the charm of electronic cigarettes is the reality of unlimited flavor options forever. Now, thanks to Ruyan, the original electronic cigarette company, and to new manufacturers introducing their own unique styles of electronic cigarettes, seasoned smokers can feel good making a healthier choice that tastes delightful.
Electronic Cigarettes, the Drawbacks, and the Pro’s And Everything Else!
Have you tried Electronic Cigarettes? Since 2004 “electronic cigarettes” have been on the market across the globe, starting in China where they were invented and released. The first ones looked just like regular cigarettes, and the original style is still popular, but as their fan club has grown, some models of electronic cigarettes have grown larger as well. Some of the newer models look more like fountain pens or tubes of mascara, being longer and much thicker than tobacco cigarettes.
Smoke Or Not Smoke?
So, what’s the draw with electronic cigarettes?
It’s two-fold, really. Electronic cigarettes do not involve tobacco or create smoke. They contain a liquid that is heated by a tiny electronic vaporizer, creating water vapor that has the appearance of smoke and provides a sense of satisfaction to those who smoke, all without the side-effects of tobacco. Electronic cigarettes contain a liquid that can be compounded to include varying levels of nicotine or none at all. In other words, users of e cigarettes can gradually decrease consumption of nicotine to cut back on smoking or to stop smoking entirely. Most electronic cigarette users choose them as a substitute for smoking tobacco. Avoiding harmful toxins and reducing dependency on tobacco is usually the first thing that attracts smokers to electronic cigarettes.
The Possibilities Of Flavor
But the reality is that users of electronic cigarettes get into their new habit/hobby and love it. The oral and tactile satisfaction is part of it of course, but the truth is that the e cigarette liquid comes in delicious flavors that are compounded to taste good, really good, so good that it’s exciting to try more and more of the thousands of flavors available. Electronic cigarettes look cool, and can they taste like tobacco, chocolate, coffee, coconut, melon, roast beef, whiskey or even breath freshener. The list of flavor options is virtually endless because e cigarette liquid can be manufactured in personalized custom combinations. Getting the familiar satisfaction with fun and flavor is what keeps users of electronic cigarettes coming back for more. Oh, and now cigar users and pipe smokers have their own electronic options as well.
It’s not called smoking, it’s called vaping. That’s right, since there’s no smoke the users of e cigarettes are not smokers, they are vapers. Anyone for an electronic cigarettes after-dinner vape?

Here We Look at Finding The Best Electronic Cigarette
By now, unless you live in an igloo in the Arctic, you have probably heard of the electronic cigarette. This unique device has been catching on like wildfire, especially with people trying to quit smoking. It is also becoming popular with smokers who are tired of being restricted from smoking tobacco cigarettes in public places like bars, restaurants, movies theaters and sports stadiums. There are dozens of different brands of smokeless cigarettes being advertised, especially on the internet. With all the hoopla and promotion, some prospective users of the e cigarette may be confused about how to find the best brand of electronic cigarette.
The first thing you should look for in an electronic cigarette is the quality of the product and how it is manufactured.
The electronic cigarette should consist of an easy to assemble, high-quality steel, two section design. The main section should hold a long life, lithium ion, rechargeable battery that powers the enclosed heating element. The all important heating element vaporizes the liquid nicotine and creates the vapor that you will inhale. The filter end that holds the nicotine cartridge makes up the other section of the e cigarette and it should be easy to remove yet firmly secured when you are using your smokeless cigarette. All these components should fit together in a seamless manner, easily and quickly so you end up holding a device that looks almost identical to a tobacco cigarette.
When you purchase your electronic cigarette, no matter if you buy it online, at a store or at a shopping mall kiosk, it should come with a clear, un-ambiguous warranty and return policy. The warranty should cover all the working parts and be serviced in a timely manner. If the manufacturer is not willing to stand behind a product that can have a real effect on your health, happiness and well being, then you should not be buying it. And of course, all electronic cigarettes should come with easy to read instructions that include photos and a step by step how to guide as well as safety instructions.
Along with a customer friendly warranty, your electronic cigarette should also include top quality customer service.
The vendor should be easy to contact and willing to answer any and all questions about their product. Returns, replacements and refunds should be done in a prompt and friendly fashion. Orders should be filled quickly and correctly and of course, there should never be any additional, unexpected charges added to your credit cards. E cigarette websites should be informative, easy to navigate and contain verifiable reviews and user comments. The website store should operate through a secure, encrypted payment system.
Your electronic cigarette should always come with a recharger.
Some come with a recharger that plugs into a usb port on a computer while other come with a recharger that plugs into a power outlet. Many of the better brands of smokeless cigarettes come with both types of recharger in their deluxe kits. Reputable vendors usually offer users a choice of which type of charger they prefer. Most users prefer the recharger that plugs into a power outlet. Many computer users are quite picky about what goes into their computer’s ports and are uncomfortable with the idea of charging the electronic cigarette through the usb port. Others feel that having to use their computer to charge the e cigarette ends up using much more electricity than simply plugging a charger into an outlet because it requires their computer to be on in addition to the recharger.
The product line of quality electronic cigarette brand should include basic starter kits, deluxe starter kits, individual electronic cigarettes and an extensive range of nicotine cartridges in varying strengths and flavors. It can not be understated how important it is that tobacco smokers, many of whom intend to quit smoking using the smokeless cigarette, have a wide range of nicotine cartridges of different strengths available to them. E cigarette users will be able to taper off gradually by lowering the strength of the cartridge every few weeks. This should help reduce the stress and withdrawal symptoms of quitting smoking.
Flavored nicotine cartridges are also important because they can add variety and excitement to the product. Flavors like Menthol Ice, Vanilla Dreams, Mocha Mist and Smooth Chocolate are just some of the many choices users of the electronic cigarette have available in flavored cartridges. These flavored cartridges can be very helpful in making the electronic cigarette more appealing than a tobacco cigarette, especially while someone is quitting smoking. Some brands have even gone as far as attempting to approximate the flavor of popular brands of cigarettes.
A very important factor is the volume of vapor produced by the particular brand of electronic cigarette. An electronic cigarette that has a high vapor volume for the user to inhale will be much more effective at replacing a tobacco cigarette than one that gives a low volume of vapor. When e cigarettes produce low vapor volumes two things happen. Smokers feel less satisfied with each drag and tend to try to inhale more vapor by dragging harder on the electronic cigarette. This can lead to over using the product and taking in more nicotine than needed. You want an electronic cigarette that draws easily and produces a substantial volume of vapor in order to provide you with a satisfying sensation of inhaling with each and every drag.
These are the basics of what makes a good electronic cigarette. It is up to you as a prospective buyer, to follow these standards when you select your particular brand of smokeless cigarette. If there is an e cigarette store in your area, we suggest going there as a starting point. Try to find one that isn’t limited to just one brand. Sample the various brands for yourself and select the one that gives you the best sense of smoking satisfaction. When you order online, make sure they have a no questions asked, 30 day return policy before you buy sight unseen. Read the product reviews on the internet and research customer comments. If you apply the standards we have set with some common sense and diligence, you should be able to find the best electronic cigarette for your money.
Part 6 The Series of Quitting With The E Cigarette The Easy Way
Today is a big day and my first real test in my attempt to quit smoking using an e cigarette. Today I plan to reduce the strength of the nicotine cartridges used in my e cigarette in order to reduce the amount of nicotine i am taking into my system. To be successful, I will have to follow certain guidelines. Obviously, I can not supplement my e cigarette with tobacco cigarettes to get more nicotine. Perhaps even more importantly, I must use the e cigarette at the same rate as when I was using the stronger nicotine cartridges. If I start to use it more than i was with the full strength cartridges, I will end up with just as much nicotine in my system. This will not help my goal to eventually be nicotine free.
Getting My E Cigarette Cartridges Was Alot Harder Than I Thought
With my goals in mind, I went to my local mall to buy a new supply of nicotine cartridges and I must say that i was a tad disappointed. I had envisioned a full line of cartridges of varying strengths designed to help me gradually taper off of nicotine. What I found instead was that there are only 3 strengths that are measured with a number system designed by the supplier. The nicotine cartridges come in strengths of 22, 11 and 5.5. While i think i can continue to achieve my goals using just 3 strengths, I would be much happier to see the cartridges come in a greater variety of strengths. This would allow me to experience much less of a jolt to my system as I reduce my nicotine intake. Certainly reducing my nicotine intake in 5 or 6 stages instead of 3 would be a lot less stressful.
I mentioned my concerns to the salesperson and he responded by telling me I could buy bottles of liquid nicotine. If I bought one bottle of 22 strength and one bottle of 11 strength, I could mix them together and create my own version of 16.5 strength. While the idea is tempting, I feel the machine made, precisely measured cartridges are the way to go. When you use the liquid nicotine, you use an eyedropper to put a certain number of drops in the filter end. This method is subject to human error and is not as accurate as the cartridges. One can end up accidentally using too many drops of liquid nicotine and have no idea of how much nicotine they are really getting with each drag. I experienced this first hand when I tried out the e cigarette before i bought it several weeks ago. The salesperson accidentally added too many drops of liquid nicotine and when I took my first drag, I actually got dizzy. As a result, I am a firm believer in the use of the cartridges as opposed to liquid nicotine.
I bought a month’s supply of 11 strength cartridges and made my way home. I decided to wait until i was in calmer surroundings than a shopping mall to try the new, milder nicotine cartridge for the first time. When I finally took a drag with the 11 strength cartridge, I immediately noticed a difference. Basically the weaker strength cartridges are like smoking a mild brand as opposed to a full strength brand of tobacco cigarette. This means until I get used to using the weaker nicotine cartridges, I will have to stay focused and pay a bit more attention to how much i use my e cigarette. I will have to be on guard against over using it to try to get more nicotine into my system. I will continue with my plan to wean myself off of the e cigarette in stages and i will achieve my goals.
First An Interesting Video About The E Cigarette And Rush Limbaugh! Interesting and a must see!
The E Cigarette and The Powers That Be: An Inside Look at The Pharma’s Views
When it comes to cigarette smoking, it has always been a double edged sword. On the one hand, people really enjoy smoking. On the other hand, it is addictive, bad for your health and can just plain kill you. Many people have spent untold amounts of time, effort, money and suffering trying to quit smoking. More often than not, their attempts to quit ended in failure. In the case of your noble author, i have tried to quit about 30 times over my 40 year smoking career. I even managed to quit for 2 years at one point but most of my attempts ended in failure after days or weeks.
Second in number, only to my attempts to quit smoking, have been the different ways i tried to quit. I’ve tried quitting cold turkey and by eating special diets. There were the nicotine patches and milder brands of cigarettes. I took prescription drugs that could cause potentially serious side effects. But despite my best efforts, I am still a smoker at almost 60 years of age. However, I recently saw some light at the end of the tunnel with my discovery of a new product to help me quit smoking tobacco.
The new product is the e cigarette, also know as the smokeless cigarette.
The e cigarette was invented by a Chinese health practitioner in 2003 and since then it has attracted quite a bit of attention and financial success. The e cigarette is a 2 part metal tube that looks like a real cigarette and gives you a measured dose of nicotine with each drag. The internal heating element vaporizes a small amount of the liquid nicotine into simulated smoke that gives you the sensation of inhaling. However, since nothing is burned, there are none of the toxic chemicals and smoke found in real tobacco cigarettes. To wrap it all in a nice, neat package, there is no second hand smoke to annoy non-smokers.
There has been a lot of good press and many articles have been written about the e cigarette. There has also been a large volume of anecdotal material and positive user comments about the e cigarette as a quit smoking device. Even doctors, who are horrified by smoking tobacco, have said it is considerably better to try to quit using the electronic cigarette than it is to continue smoking tobacco. No one has been injured or killed by e cigarettes and a substantial number of people have quit smoking using the device. Certainly no one has fallen asleep and burned themselves to a pile of ash using an e cigarette unlike the fate of many tobacco smokers who were foolish enough to smoke in bed.
This all brings us to one of America’s most “beloved” institutions, the FDA or Food And Drug Administration. This ubiquitous agency is known to insiders as “Big Pharma’s best friend” and as usual, they are working hard to keep the title. Take for example this recent nugget from the FDA dated April 25, 2011:
“The Food and Drug Administration announced Monday that it will act to ensure the government’s right to impose marketing, manufacturing and safety restrictions on “electronic cigarettes,” a nicotine delivery device widely billed as an alternative to cigarettes for those trying to quit and for smokers who can’t light up.
In a letter posted to the FDA’s website Monday, Dr. Lawrence R. Deyton, director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, said the agency will act to regulate e-cigarettes as tobacco products. To shore up its authority to do so, the agency will propose new regulatory language that would specifically define e-cigarettes as a tobacco product.”
Once again the FDA has jumped head first into the fray, as they put it, “To protect the health of Americans of all ages.” One might wonder what their real motivation is and who will benefit the most from their draconian attempt to regulate e cigarettes. The FDA hasn’t been deterred in the least from this attempt to regulate smokeless cigarettes despite the “recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Sottera, Inc. v. Food & Drug Administration, stating that e-cigarettes and other products are not drugs/devices unless they are marketed for therapeutic purpose…”
On the one hand, we have a device that makes no medical claims but may actually help people quit smoking. This device has not caused anyone to die unlike tobacco cigarettes or many of the drugs the FDA has approved but the FDA is still on the warpath. Until they lost the court case, the FDA was seizing shipments of e cigarettes at U.S. Customs and trying to have the e cigarette banned permanently. Now they want them classified as if they were tobacco cigarettes. This move would force the manufacturers of e cigarettes to spend untold millions of dollars on FDA approved testing and development to be able to market electronic cigarettes. The FDA is simply trying to put the e cigarette out of business.
Another factor involved in the FDA’s efforts to regulate the e cigarette and classify them as tobacco is tax revenues. The government is terrified that the e cigarette may be as effective as they seem to be and millions of smokers will use the smokeless cigarette to quit smoking. This would cost the government untold billions in tobacco taxes. Unless of course, they can replace the tax revenues they would lose from tobacco cigarettes by taxing the e cigarette as if it were tobacco. All this from the government that claims it is only out to protect us from dangerous and fraudulent products. Another shining example of the the out of control, Federal government milking the tax payer for every cent they can wring out of us.
Then we have the major drug companies and their issues with the e cigarette. Just like vitamins, homeopathic medicines, herbal products and so many other things that the FDA has tired to control and regulate, the e cigarette is bad for the profit line of Big Pharma. The drug companies are not in the business of making you well. The sicker you get the more they make. They couldn’t give a hoot about your health or mine. This is an insidious network of government agencies and multi national corporations who will do everything in their power to crush any product they cant totally control, market and make a massive profit on. It’s no different than the FDA’s attempt to get vitamins classified as drugs because Big Pharma hasn’t been able to find a way to patent vitamins and thereby get an exclusive on their sale. These are people who would have air declared a drug if they thought they could get away with it.
An ugly fight is on the horizon but sadly most of the e cigarette manufacturers are small companies who don’t have the deep pockets to go up against the FDA. It looks like they will have to throw themselves on the mercy of the Federal Courts where they have had some limited success and hope for the best. Meanwhile, the FDA will do every dirty thing it can think of to put many e cigarette companies in dire straits. For the moment, I can still find an affordable supply of e cigarettes and extra nicotine cartridges at the local mall. I hope the FDA fails in their crusade against the e cigarette. As far as i am concerned, the e cigarette a damned sight safer and more effective then pills and nicotine patches.
Quitting The Easy Way With an E Cigarette ; Part 1
I started smoking at 12 years old by stealing cigarettes from the tray my mother would put out for guests at parties. Since i am now 59 years old, i can remember a time when just about every adult smoked and didn’t feel guilty about it. When it finally dawned on me that cigarette smoking was seriously harmful to my health, i embarked on my current 35 year journey to quit smoking. Well folks, after dozens of failed attempts to quit, it looks like there may finally be hope for me.
This time i have a new weapon in my arsenal that may really work in my battle to quit smoking. I’m going to be using the new invention called an electronic or smokeless cigarette. This device was invented by a Chinese health practitioner in 2003 and over the past few years, it has been spreading like a wildfire among smokers trying to quit. It is simple, 2 part metal tube that looks like a real cigarette and gives you a measured dose of nicotine with each drag. The internal heating element vaporizes a small amount of the liquid nicotine into simulated smoke that gives you the sensation of inhaling. However, since nothing is burned, there are none of the toxic chemicals and smoke found in real tobacco cigarettes. Imagine that, the sensation of smoking without the toxins and second hand smoke.
I have been told by friends that you can actually use the e cigarette anywhere.
Even in restaurants and other public places where smoking has been banned. This remains to be tested by me and i am looking forward to people’s reactions when i use my smokeless e cigarette in public. I will report back to you on the results. I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the package containing my e cigarette and a 3 month supply of replacement nicotine cartridges. When they arrive, i will be giving away any remaining tobacco cigarettes and switching over to my smokeless cigarette exclusively.
My plan is simple and very straight forward. I will use the e cigarette at the same rate as when i was smoking tobacco cigarettes. Since one cartridge is equivalent to one pack of tobacco cigarettes, i will try to approximate my previous pack a day tobacco cigarette habit. To enable smokers to quit completely, the nicotine cartridges come in different strengths. I ordered a month’s supply of the strongest cartridges and several other strengths in varying amounts. This will allow me to taper off my nicotine dose over 3 months until i am totally weaned off of nicotine. After three months, if i am still craving nicotine, i can always go to the local mall and get a few more weeks worth of low strength cartridges.
Well, thats about it for now. As i said, im chomping at the bit to get started with my e cigarette.
I can’t wait until the package arrives and i can put my plan to the test. I hope this is the time i actually succeed in quitting smoking tobacco cigarettes. Only time will tell if my plan is sucessfull and those of you reading this will be the first to know my results. I just can’t wait to light up my e cigarette in some posh restaurant and see the looks on people’s faces. The comments they make should be priceless. Hopefully, no one will assault me or throw a glass of water on me. We all know how dangereous mitant, non-smokers can be when roused.
Stay tuned for part 2 on how the e cigarette is helping me stop smoking.
Personal Vaporizes are the products that are allowing current smokers to switch over to a smokeless lifestyle. A smokeless lifestyle can mean a healthier life, a smoke free life, but more importantly a cost efficient life that can save you thousands, keep reading to see how!
Electronic cigarettes offer consumers to switch over from traditional cigarettes to a electronic cigarette or commonly known as the Electronic Cigarette. This unique device provides the consumer with the liquid nicotine through an atomizer and a cartridge powered through a battery. This innovative technique allows the users to deliver the liquid nicotine through the electronic cigarette without allowing the hundreds of toxic chemicals that are often found in traditional cigarettes. The nicotine fix not only allows the user to smoke when they want but where they want.
Saving money with the electronic cigarette is a no brainer! The costs of cigarettes in the United States are going to be above a national average of $5.00-$7.00 for a pack of cigarettes and cartons over $100. If you are looking to save money with the electronic cigarette, or smokeless cigarette, then you have to look into www.smokelessdelite.com. The initial investment for the electronic cigarette starting at $69.99 is a rough bump in the pocket at first. But luckily that is a one time fee. Purchase the electronic cigarette once and buy electronic cigarette cartridges on a need to smoke basis. The cost of cartridges is extremely low when comparing them to the extremely high price of cigarettes. The electronic cigarette cartridges cost roughly $12 for a pack of electronic cigarette cartridges. But wait, there are 5 single cartridges in this $12 pack. And according to www.smokelessdelite.com, each electronic cigarette cartridge last approximately 60-80 drags, or equivalent to roughly one pack of cigarettes. So for one pack of electronic cigarette cartridges at about $12 you are getting somewhere between 4-5 packs of what you would some of traditional cigarettes.
Let’s say the national average for a pack of cigarettes is about $6 a pack (low ball) and you bought 5 packs of cigarettes that would cost you $30. $12 for a pack of electronic cigarette cartridges versus $30 for the same usage is a no brainer! Now let’s spread that over a year.
A one pack a day smoker would buy 365 packs of cigarettes a year and that would come to a grand total of $2,190.00. Wow that is expensive! If you used the electronic cigarette and buy electronic cigarette refill cartridges to last a year it would cost you $854 (5/ $12 = $2.40 a day x 365 days a year). $2,190.00-$854= A SAVINGS OF $1,336.00!!! Now that’s worth switching over to the electronic cigarette.
With the new year quite well under way, many have considered using a smokeless cigarette to help them kick the habit for good. For a very long time, the only alternatives in this were pills with potentially harmful side effects, patches that burn the skin, leaving sticky goo behind, gums and lozenges that taste awful and make your breathe reek. For others, quitting sold turkey meant packing on the pounds and feeling angry, agitated and ultimately- not being able to give up the habit. Even if you’re not looking to quit smoking, the smokeless cigarette can be something that makes life much easier- and offers a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
One of the biggest reasons that people try to quit smoking is second hand smoke. The harms of this are very well known and documented- and it is for this reason many cities heavily regulate where you can and cannot smoke. Others may find that having to smoke outside so that they do not harm their families is a rough way to go- when the weather is bad, this option is sometimes one that creates problems. So, what can you do if you want to quit smoking, or you want to smoke anywhere? Enter the smokeless cigarette. These are sometimes called electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes and they have been gaining steady popularity amongst both people who want to quit smoking, and people who just want to be able to smoke anywhere without dealing with the dirty looks or harmful second hand smoke.
The Smokeless Cigarette Is The Best Alternative
This is actually a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking. Because there really isn’t actually any tobacco in a smokeless cigarette- there’s also no tar, no smelly reside left behind wherever you smoke. When you smoke a tobacco cigarette, not only does it create clouds of second hand smoke, but, and if you’ve ever cleaned a car you smoke in, you know- tobacco smoke leaves a sticky sort of yellow residue. This is because tobacco has tar, and that tar is what is responsible for not only this residue, but the stale scent often left behind.
This is not a problem when you smoke using a smokeless cigarette cartridge. People who have tried them note that the look, taste, and feel is the same as with a tobacco cigarette. So, how does a smokeless cigarette work, exactly? Utilizing a battery operated nicotine-release device, these smokeless alternatives deliver small amounts of nicotine when inhaled. A liquid nicotine cartridge is heated, creating the taste, sensation and feel of a tobacco cigarette- but not the smoke.
The nicotine vapor inhaled by the smoker leaves no smoke- because there is no burning. Therefor, there’s also no second hand smoke, making it possible to smoke anywhere. The nicotine vapor almost instantly evaporates, so, there isn’t even a scent left behind. This is why for people who are looking for a way to help sate those nicotine cravings, a smokeless cigarette delivers a great alternative- one that can be used anywhere without worry.
