Asked recently to write about electronic cigarettes, I have to confess that had never heard of such a thing. Some internet research later and I discovered that electronic cigarettes are very much a quickly growing concern relx. A Google search revealed there is no smoke without fire as almost six million results just for the phrase “electronic cigarette” were returned.
What is an electronic cigarette?
The electronic cigarette has been in existence for pretty much three years and is a clever device aimed at providing smokers with a healthier option. Apparently also useful in helping to reduce as well as quit smoking altogether.
Now in a fourth generation, electronic cigarettes have become much more easy to than earlier versions which perhaps were a touch too large to encourage a mass market appeal. The “mini” is the most realistic e cigarette to date with its length of 100mm being the same as a standard cigarette.
An electronic cigarette includes taste of tobacco but none of the harmful substances found in normal using tobacco allowing smokers cravings to be satisfied without inhaling and exhaling the many dangerous toxins. Is it all smoke and mirrors? Or can this item really are the saviour it wants to be?
A battery, an atomiser and a renewable cigarette smoking chamber allows the smoker to hold and smoke the electronic cigarette just as they would any other cigarette, even creating a “smoke” like vapour and gleam at the end as they draw. The cigarette smoking chamber proves very useful as cartridges are available in different strengths, allowing the user to reduce the amount of cigarette smoking they intake until if they wish, can quit completely.
A cigarette smoking cartridge typically lasts the same time as 15 to 20 using tobacco, thus creating a huge saving to normal costs. Standard, medium, low and no cigarette smoking at all are the various cartridge strengths.
A healthier option altogether it seems, though the benefits don’t end there. Due to the electronic cigarette not emitting any dangerous substances, toxins or real smoke for that matter, they are perfectly legal to smoke in public. In winter in particular, normal cigarette smokers have to brave the freezing cold and the rain just for a quick smoking break but this alternative will allow them to stay in their offices, restaurants and pubs.
None smokers also will benefit, as their worries about passive smoking are rendered null and void by the electronic cigarette. A much more cultural environment then!
Upon depiction the electronic cigarette is a healthier, cheaper and environmentally friendly alternative to smoking and as the awareness and the market grows they have great potential to successfully replace the harmful using tobacco we have all come to know and many of us attended to dread and fear.
