Electronic Cigarettes: What Everyone Wants to Know
Electronic cigarettes have been an absolute revolution in the past few years. As they've become commonly available, people are realizing that they have no tar, no ash, no smell. Plus, you can smoke anywhere. However, we've been wisely conditioned to distrust anything that seems too good to be true. Are the benefits of electronic cigarettes real? What's the catch? We find out today.
Do electronic cigarettes really work?
Yes. However, they are not exactly the same as smoking! E-cigs deliver nicotine in a mist or vapor. So while you still get the nicotine fix, there is a myriad of other chemicals in cigarettes that your body has become accustomed to. There will still be a slight adjustment period when switching to e-cigs ... but you can easily pull yourself through it with the positive thoughts of how much money you'll save, and your decreased cancer risk.
Are electronic cigarettes safe?
Nobody can truthfully say that electronic cigarettes are safe yet. The FDA isn't concerned enough to halt sales within the US, although it isn't allowing imported e-cigs into the country. Nicotine gum and lozenges also have the potential to increase your risk of developing cancer, but on nowhere near the same level as actually smoking. Use the electronic cigarettes in a stepping-stone manner, to help you gently quit, and there is no question that they are a fantastic tool ... and far safer than simply continuing to smoke because the negative effects of quitting are too overwhelming.
Do electronic cigarettes stain your teeth?
No! Most inhaler cartridges are 99% water. It is the tar in cigarettes that stains your teeth; this is one drawback of smoking that you'll be kicking to the curb forever.
Do electronic cigarettes hurt your lungs?
In 'puff to puff' terms, e-cigs do not hurt your lungs. In health terms, it hasn't yet been proven that e-cigs do not 'harm' your lungs. In a German scientific study, Dr. Mayer said, "Apart from nicotine, the 'electrical cigarette' is toxicologically harmless."
Can I make my own electronic cigarette liquid?
Yes - this is another great benefit of electronic cigarette use. However, you need to be sure that any materials you use are safe to inhale the vapors from - buy from a registered e-cigarette dealer to assure yourself of this.
Do electronic cigarettes really help you quit smoking?
They may. There are several factors that feed into whether an electronic cigarette can ultimately help you quit, like your level of addiction to the tar and other chemicals that come from tobacco combustion etc.
Do electronic cigarettes encourage kids to smoke?
Reputable e-cig vendors will not supply to minors. It is true that e-cigs have a range of flavors available...but so do nicotine lozenges, vodka drinks and condoms.
Electronic cigarettes are quite new, and there have been few studies on either their health or psychological effects. However, you'll find very few dissatisfied users ... most say that they are now spending less on their 'smoking' than ever, can comfortably smoke inside even with kids in the house, and are well on their way to complete quitting!
