Smoking is perhaps one of the worst habits to break. Not only does it make your life a living hell when you’re trying to quit, it’s kicking your body into pieces when you’re one it! Although there are many effective ways to stop smoking, the problem always lies on a former smoker that goes into a relapse. Although you can effectively stop smoking, the temptation is always there.
When it comes to electric cigarettes (e-cigarettes) , the provide one thing for smokers: a safer solution to smoking that hopes to down your nicotine dosage to more “safer” levels are a great way to wean yourself off cigarettes forever.
How E-Cigarettes Work
You can say that electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are a smoking simulation. Why? Because that’s basically how this nifty toy works. This electronic device stimulates smoke that hopes to feel as close to the taste of nicotine as possible. Even the design looks exactly like a cigarette so you can trick yourself into having a smoke without having to smoke. Here’s a run-down of its features:
- Safe from second-hand smoke. These electronic cigarettes only emulate the feeling that you’re actually smoking so there is really no smell or second hand smoke. This not only eliminates the fear of second-hand smoke, but you’ll be able to go through smoking and non-smoking areas with relative ease so it’s essentially a win-win situation.
- Less expensive. Sure, a single cigarette is still cheap but when you punch the numbers in at the end of the day, you’ll be surprised how much of your wallet it takes away. A pack nowadays costs at around $6 USD in comparison to an electronic cigarette’s refill, which costs only 1/3 of the price.
- Less Ash. The gripe that most smokers often face is ash and how ash practically leaves an unpleasant smell. You’ll be glad that e-cigarettes don’t have that problem.
What makes e-cigarettes a healthy alternative to conventional smoking is not only in the fact that they try to capture the essence of actually smoking a cigarette, but also to settle your oral fixation, the proverbial feeling that you have to stuff something in your mouth in order to find a certain level calm. To bring a suitable comparison is that of a nicotine patch. Much like a nicotine patch, it sates the user’s ability to want to smoke but unlike it, it offers the feeling of smoking without having to suck nicotine into your system.
Of course, there are indirect and direct benefits to e-cigarettes that make it a healthy alternative to actually smoking. For one thing, it gives you a breather and healthier set of lungs. You’ll feel better and feel much better about yourself.
As mentioned above, this is not only a healthy alternative, but a cheaper one. But did you know that it technically allows you to have cheaper insurance? Since rates for smokers and non-smokers differentiate, it could put you up for big savings. So you might as well give it a try.
