If you have been a long time smoker, you have probably tried the normal route of quitting. These include cold turkey and the over the counter smoking cessation, but perhaps you were not able to keep your stay off cigarettes? When someone decides to quit smoking, it is one of the most challenging undertakings he or she will face.
Unfortunately, the smoking cessation that is found at drugstores simply does not have enough nicotine in them to really take the edge off the withdrawal symptoms. Most smokers still experience extreme withdrawals.
The Vaporizer or E-Cigarette
An electronic cigarette, often shortened to ‘e-cig’ has been helping many former smokers kick the habit once and for all. The reason the smoker can quit is that the e-cig has more nicotine. When the nicotine withdrawal is quenched, getting off cigarettes is quite easy.
The e-cig is made up of a battery and a cartridge. E-juice, which contains the nicotine that is added to the cartridge. The battery warms the juice in the cartridge as the user draws on it. Vapor is inhaled along with the nicotine and upon exhale, the vapor looks like smoke.
What’s it Nicotine Juice?
It’s been well documented that cigarettes have over 4000 chemicals and most of them are known to be carcinogenic. The craving the smoker has is only for the nicotine and it has never been linked to any ill effects on health. Nicotine is a stimulant and highly addictive, but in and of itself, it is not a carcinogen. The e-juice is available in different nicotine strengths.
What’s in the Nicotine Juice?
The nicotine juice has approximately 5 to 7 total ingredients in it. The base is either vegetable glycerin (VG) or propylene glycol (PG) or a combination of the two. Flavoring is then added in to create the various tastes. Some may also add sugar or a sweetener if needed. Both PG and VG have been approved by the FDA as non-carcinogenic.
Difference Between Vaping and Smoking
With cigarettes, the smoke comes from burning tobacco. With an e-cig, there is no burning of tobacco since there is no tobacco. The e-juice is simply warmed.
Cigarette smoke tends to linger and can cause a person to take on a very unpleasant smell. Since nothing is burning with the e-cig, there is no smell and no worries about second-hand smoke as with regular cigarettes.
E-Cigs are Cheaper
Traditional cigarettes are very expensive and the price continues to increase as tobacco is taxed higher. E-cigs do not have tobacco and therefore, the FDA cannot regulate them in the United States. The average amount of smoker saves when switching to the e-cig is about 50 percent less than he or she was paying for traditional cigarettes.
The Bottom Line
Many ex-smokers are delighted when they actually find a tool that helps them give up cigarettes once and for all. The e-cig is quickly becoming very popular and buying online will give you a better selection as well as a cheaper price.
