E – Cigarettes are battery operated nicotine inhalers that consist of a recharge- able battery. The e-liquid you fill your electronic cigarette with is where the nicotine is carried. This e-liquid is made of components that are normally present in food and pharmaceutical items. E-liquid provides you with the nicotine and the electronic cigarette provides with a similarity to a traditional cigarette, all without exposing you to the substances found in ordinary cigarettes.
- Quitting entirely is probably the slightly healthier option for most people. This is because nicotine itself may slightly increase your risk of heart at- tack and stroke, though not nearly as much as smoking does. But switch- ing to a highly-reduced-risk nicotine product is almost as good as quitting entirely. Because the longer you smoke the worse it is for you, switching now may be better than quitting later. – Founded on Casaa.com article http://tobaccoharmreduction.org
- They come with various strengths of nicotine and some E-Cigarettes con- tain no nicotine—only flavor. Even though E-Cigarettes are not regulated, sold or marketed as a stop smoking cessation device , “vapers” can buy e-cigarette e-liquid with various strengths of nicotine, ranging from no nicotine to 3.6% mg (high). This allows e-cigarette users to gradually cut back on nicotine — if they choose—while still experiencing the physical sensation of smoking. It also helps minimize the side effects of nicotine withdrawal, such as fatigue, irritability, increased hunger and depression.
- Stated by Deborah Leader, RN founded on about.com article name “Is the Electronic Cigarette a Safe Stop Smoking Aid?” E-Cigarettes may poten- tially help improve the lives for Americans with COPD, chronic obstruc- tive pulmonary disease. COPD is the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. and 85 to 90 percent of those with the disease smoke or did so for a long time.
- They are more cost-effective than regular cigarettes. Once a “starter kit” (containing batteries, chargers, etc.) is purchased. For example, a bottle
of e-liquid for the E-Cigarettes may cost between $6.95 and $7.95 for a 10 ml bottle which is equivalent to 7 1/2 pack of cigarettes, for a total of $.92 – $1.06 a “pack”. Regular cigarettes cost anywhere between $5 and $14 a pack, depending on where in the United States they’re purchased. A person’s average savings is 75-80%.
