E-cigarettes Are Helping Smokers Quit

All smokers are aware of the fact that tobacco kills. Over 5 million people die every year because of tobacco addiction. But the fact is that, quitting smoking is a decision that lies firmly with the smoker. One can lecture a tobacco user ad-nauseam about the de-merits of tobacco, but it will achieve nothing till the smoker himself or herself decides that enough harm has been done.

E-cigarettes Are Helping Smokers Quit

  1. 1. All smokers are aware of the fact that tobacco kills. Over 5 million people die every yearbecause of tobacco addiction. But the fact is that, quitting smoking is a decision that lies firmlywith the smoker. One can lecture a tobacco user ad-nauseam about the de-merits of tobacco,but it will achieve nothing till the smoker himself or herself decides that enough harm has beendone. But to look at it from the point of a smoker, one must appreciate the fact that it is easier saidthan done. Willpower in theory is one thing but to execute it is quite another. Especially, if thishabit has grown over a number of years. A smoker may have tried to quit many times withoutsuccess. For those of you who are empathising with what you are reading here, you may giveelectronic cigarettes a shot. https://www.facebook.com/ecigsHQ Makers of Electronic cigarettesor e-cigarettes are claiming that they can indeed help smokers quit in a manner that promises tobe very effective.
  2. 2. Better than the real thing? Those who propagate for e-cigarettes claim that these products are indeed better than smokingreal tobacco cigarettes because they give as much of a high without transmitting the harmfultoxins that come with tobacco cigarettes. Here is the lowdown on how e-cigarettes work. Thedevice is designed in a manner so that looks pretty much like an ordinary cigarette. It is howevermade up of a tube containing an LED light at the end. The device is battery operated andcontains a cartridge that holds a liquefied solution.As soon as one “lights up” (or switches on the device) the solution that is made up of liquidnicotine is heated up. On inhaling this solution, it turns into a vapour giving the effect ofthe smoke. What the user of an e-cigarette is essentially doing is, inhaling just flavouredwater and no harmful chemicals and toxins that have a damaging effect on the lungs. http://www.webmd.com/smoking-cessation/news/20110208/survey-e-cigarettes-may-help-smokers-quitSince e-cigarette smoking is akin to the “real thing” as the action produces the same effects. Asmoker who is really willing to get off tobacco might find this method to be extremely useful incheating one’s brains. Since the action produced is so remarkably similar to smoking a tobaccocigarette, after a while you will find yourself getting so used to this that you will not find theneed to reach out for tobacco at all. This is exactly how millions of users of e-cigarettes acrossnations have managed to get rid of tobacco from their lives forever.Helping people getting off tobaccoMany people who are trying to get rid of their smoking habit and have switched to e-cigaretteshave noted that their breathing has become more regular and they are experiencing muchlesser discomfort. Also in social circles too they are finding greater acceptance because theydo not smell all “smoky” and neither do they have teeth that are stained with nicotine marks!
  3. 3. E-cigarettes are very effective unlike the other therapies for quitting smoking such as gum orpatches. This is because e-cigarettes mimic the action of real cigarettes almost identically.E-cigarettes are also a better option because they last at least twenty times more than ordinarycigarettes. E-cigarettes are thus a far more economic option too. If you switch over to e-cigarettes from standard tobacco cigarettes you will find your savings on smoking being cutdown to as much as 80 per cent! So in effect, you are not only doing your lungs a favour you aredoing a great favour to your wallet as well.Find a good supplierHowever you must take care to find a good supplier when you are opting for e-cigarettes. Withthe soaring popularity of e-cigarettes, there have been many manufacturers who are trying tomake a fast buck by overpricing these products. There is a variety of devices in e-cigarettesthat you are likely to come across when you do your initial research on e-cigarettes. Some areshaped like a pen or come in attractive colours that can make a fashion statement.These stylishly cut out devices are likely to cost a little more, but if you are opting for regulare-cigarettes, they should come pretty cheap. Check with two or three suppliers , before youpick up your stocks from one. Also while buying e-cigarettes from a supplier make sure that thesupplier has enough stock in his hand, else you may run into a bit of a problem when you needto replace your cartridges. Because these e-cigarettes are in high demand, a supplier who is notwell stocked from the beginning, he may take weeks to replenish his stock.Although e-cigarettes have found success largely with those tobacco addicts who have beentrying to quit for the longest time, there are indeed some problems that one may face whilemaking the transition from tobacco to e-cigarettes. Unlike a regular cigarette that you just drawout from a packet anytime you need a smoke, smoking an e-cigarette needs some kind ofpreparation in advance. One has to charge a battery, carry extra cartridges, and remember tocarry a charger at all times. If that does not seem feasible, you may even consider carrying an
  4. 4. extra battery pack as a back-up.The last wordFor a smoker who reaches out for tobacco every half hour, this may indeed seem like acumbersome task, but if you are really serious about quitting smoking, going through this initialpain is absolutely worth it. It’s only a matter of time that you will get used to all the paraphernaliathat comes with e-cigarettes much like you have for any other electronic gadgets that you carryon yourself at any given time. Though e-cigarettes are being highly propagated these days, itmay serve you well to be informed that there are some concerns about this product that is stillunder discussion at WHO and other regulatory health associations. Though people may be ledinto believing that these are completely nicotine free, they are not. Having said that, you maystill appreciate the fact that you are at least making a better choice when it comes to the habit ofsmoking!
