Ecigarettes can help to Quit Smoking, Cut-down on daily tobacco intake or used as a healthier alternative.
THE stop-smoking market has become big business in recent years and all manner of methods to ditch the dreaded weed are available.
Nicotine replacement therapy, acupuncture, hypnosis… the bottom line is that many smokers will try anything in their quest to quit.
But a growing phenomenon is emerging in the fight to stub it out: electronic cigarettes. So what are they? And how do they work?
Electronic cigarettes (also known as E-cigs or E-cigarettes) look exactly like normal cigarettes. But crucially they contain NO tobacco, NO carbon, NO tar and NO carcinogens. In simple terms, E-cigarettes, such as the award-winning ePuffer range, are a healthier alternative to conventional smoking.
They are battery-powered devices that provide inhaled doses of a vaporized nicotine solution. This harmless nicotine mixture also gives off a pleasant flavour and a sensation similar to one experienced when inhaling proper tobacco smoke; the only difference, of course, is there is no dangerous tobacco or smoke.
The nicotine solution in the E-cigarette satisfies the cravings that smokers seek without containing any cancer-causing chemicals and other significant risks to health. Because of the harmless nature of E-cigs, the dangers of passive smoking are also eradicated.
Inhaling sparks the vapourising procedure that also releases a “simulated” smoke that looks real but is actually a mist of harmless vapour. The electronic cigarettes rely on micro-electronic technology and contain a tiny rechargeable battery. Some E-cigs are disposable while others contain a replaceable atomised cartridge, which contains water, propylene glycol, nicotine and a scent similar to tobacco. And E-cigs can be smoked anywhere and everywhere as they are not banned from pubs, restaurants or similar public places.
Leading manufacturers of electronic cigarettes, such as ePuffer, are currently boosting their range of products; for example, ePuffer’s range includes a disposable e-cigarette which lasts for up to 500 puffs and costs $17.95. Other models are based on a rechargeable battery and cartridge which works out at $2.50 per cartridge – much cheaper than a conventional pack of 20 tobacco cigarettes.
So are electronic cigarettes poised to consign carbon monoxide, toxic tar and other cancer-causing nasties to the history books? One thing’s for sure: they allow you to enjoy a smoke anywhere you want, without harming yourself or your loved ones.
