Electronic Cigarettes vs. Traditional Cigarettes

  1. 1. Electronic Cigarettes vs. Traditional CigarettesIn recent years electronic cigarettes have become increasingly popular as analternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. Unlike other initiatives to replace thesmoking habit, electronic cigarettes do so on a like-for-like basis. Not only do userssatisfy their body’s nicotine craving but they also have something to hold and inhalefrom just as they would when smoking a traditional cigarette. Electronic cigarettestherefore satisfy a number of different habits associated with smoking and as a resultincrease the chances of success when it comes to transitioning away from tobaccosmoking. However, the benefits of electronic cigarettes do not end there.The habit of smoking tobacco is a significant drain on finances with only thepossibility of cigarettes gaining in price in the future. It is estimated that Viking E-cigs, a leading brand in the electronic cigarette market, have the potential to save thesmoker 80% of the money spent on tobacco cigarettes. This is largely due to the factthat E-cigs are refillable using a specialist E-liquid which is available in a number ofdifferent flavours. It is therefore estimated that the total cost of smoking theequivalent of 20 cigarettes is 89p. This makes E-cigs significantly less expensivethan even the cheapest brand of tobacco cigarettes.The health benefits of smoking electronic cigarette alternatives have not been fullyscientifically established as the research simply has not been carried out to date.However, what is a fact is that electronic cigarettes do not contain the 4,000 pluschemicals, poisons, toxins and carcinogens that are present in tobacco smoke.Specifically, they do not contain tobacco or tar which are some of the most harmfulsubstances found in traditional cigarettes. Therefore, smokers do not suffer from theassociated odour that often ligers on the breath and the clothing.The use of electronic cigarettes is also kinder on those around the smoker. Passivesmoking is a significant killer each and every year, affecting those who do not smokethemselves but who are exposed to tobacco smoke. The fact that E-cigs do notcontain the 4,000 plus chemicals found in tobacco smoke is not only beneficial forthe smoker’s health but for the heath of those around them. What is more, electroniccigarettes eliminate the bad odour so often found on breath, property and clothing,ensuring that loved ones do not have to suffer for the smoker’s habit.
  2. 2. It is no longer a matter of debate whether smoking has adverse health effects, bothon the smoker and on those around the smoker. The facts are that smoking killsthousands of people each and every year and passive smoking kills a substantialnumber of people in addition. Tobacco smoking has the potential to cripple families,whether through illness, death or poverty. By transitioning to electronic cigarettessmokers can protect themselves, their families and their friends. Families would nolonger have to face the constant worry of losing their loved one to lung cancer or ofbecoming destitute in the course of funding the habit.To learn more about the benefits of e-cigs and e-liquid then please visit the websiteof Viking E-cigs, a UK based specialist online retailer.Viking EcigsWebsite: http://www.vikingecigs.co.uk/Email: sales@vikingecigs.co.ukTelephone: 08445 888 510
