Quit Smoking by Using Electronic Cigarettes


People have been aware that smoking is dangerous to their health and yet they find it hard and cannot seem to quit smoking. Manufacturers have been innovating and developing cessation products for several years to help people quit smoking, like nicotine patches to gum.

The newest product on the market today is e-cigarettes or electronic cigarettes. Its design is made to look like real cigarette, from its look and feel down to the emission of artificial smoke although it does not contain tobacco. This means that users would inhale nicotine vapour looking like smoke but without the carcinogens found in tobacco which causes harm to the smoker and the people around him or her.

The e-cigarette and e liquid features a nicotine cartridge which contains liquid nicotine. A tiny battery powered atomizer would turn a small amount of liquid nicotine into vapour every time the user inhales. The hit that a user gets upon inhaling nicotine would come in seconds compared to patches or gum which would come in minutes. Also, when the user inhales, there is a small glow of orange that appears at the tip of the electronic cigarette that simulates a real cigarette. These features give satisfaction to users because it is as if they are smoking the real cigarette.

There are different strengths coming in the nicotine cartridges, like full strength, half and minimal strengths. These strengths are made for people who want to quit smoking, since they can gradually reduce the strength until they quit as they get used to using the e-cigarette.

In summary, the main advantages of vaping over nicotine patches or gum are that users have the nicotine hit in seconds or faster, and that they do not miss the act of inhaling in real cigarette because of the design of the e-cigarette that emulates a real cigarette from the look and feel of it, down to the emission of smoke.

On the cost side, electronic cigarette would come out cheaper than consuming real cigarettes. For example, a set of five nicotine cartridges would cost around $12 which is already equivalent to 500 cigarettes. Make sure that you are buying the real e-cigarette as you search for it in the market. Imitations are not recommended to use since these have not been subjected to the rigorous testing and may cause some health problems. Public places like pubs and restaurants have acknowledged the safety of e-cigarettes and have accepted the use of these in their places.
