Tobacco companies won’t admit that smoking is an addiction but everyone knows it is so. And it is an addiction that’s powerful enough to keep millions smoking tobacco and jeopardizing their health. The tar in cigarette smoke is a carcinogen and tobacco contains many other harmful substances. That’s why no matter how pleasant smoking may be, almost every smoker has thought about quitting. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. But there is an alternative now – in electronic smoking cigarettes.
With just about everything else benefiting from the rapid advances in technology, electronic cigarettes should come as no surprise. Let me explain the idea behind it. If you’re a smoker who has tried to quit, you know that it’s not just the rush from the nicotine that makes it hard to kick the habit. It’s also a psychological thing. Holding the cigarette or pipe, lighting up after dinner or during a break, tasting and twirling the smoke. So what if you could have all that, but without the tar and other carcinogens of tobacco smoke?
This is where electronic smoking comes in. It doesn’t do away with nicotine, so there are no withdrawal symptoms. Unlike patches or gum, it also doesn’t take away the physical aspect of a cigarette, a cigar, a pipe or a cigarillo; it does replace them with an e-cigarette, e-cigar, e-pipe and e-cigarillo. These smoking products use sophisticated, patented technology to vaporize special liquids, not surprisingly called an e-liquid, to produce smoke and deliver nicotine just as if you were smoking a real cigarette. For those who like the comforting glow of burning tobacco when they inhale, those e-smoking products even have a little light that simulates the glow when you inhale. Not necessary as far as I am concerned, but the makers apparently thought it added a nice touch.
