E-Cigs – Body Friendly or Not?

With all the promotional stuff that seems to be going around about electronic cigarettes these days, there seems to be a few problems when it comes to peoples opinion of them. Some people think that they are in fact, bad for your health, choosing to continue to smoke real cigarettes instead, whereas other people have easily made the switch from normal cigarettes to electronic ones and noticed many health benefits, as well as plenty of other positives. It seems that everyone has formed their own opinion of e-cigs but we are here to set the matter straight – whichever way you look at it, electronic cigarettes are much better for you than real cigarettes will ever be!
Of course, if you don’t already smoke “normal” cigarettes, choosing to smoke an electronic one probably isn’t the best idea. You don’t want to get yourself addicted to nicotine as you will always need to use one until you wean yourself off it – something that can, in some cases, be just as difficult as giving up the smokes completely. The question that you must ask yourself is – if you don’t already smoke or have a dependence on nicotine and cigarettes, why would you want to start smoking anything, electronic or otherwise. It would basically be like being a non-smoker for most of your life and then suddenly deciding to become addicted to nicotine with an electronic cigarette – it just doesn’t make a lot of sense.
For those that are already addicted to smoking cigarettes, cigars or other nicotine based products, the idea of e-cigs is a good one – you are basically stopping the “bad” cigarettes, choosing to smoke a slightly healthier option. Clearly you will still be addicted to nicotine, but in a much healthier form that could eventually help you to quit smoking and being dependent on nicotine altogether.
Electronic cigarettes were designed with existing smokers in mind. They are meant to be used as a product that is alternative to smoking – a healthier option, if you like. For many reasons, e-cigs are a much healthier option than normal smokes, giving people the incentive to make the change. If you don’t already smoke however, electronic cigarettes are not a good idea for you.
If you are planning on quitting smoking or cutting down, electronic cigarettes are a good idea. They can help you to substitute some or all of your cigarettes, cigars or other tobacco based products for something that is considered to be much healthier. You will still be getting your nicotine fix but without the thousands of chemicals that are in other tobacco based nicotine products; chemicals that can and will cause cancer as well as plenty of other life-changing and potentially fatal conditions and medical problems.
The smoke of a real cigarette is dangerous and of course, you won’t have to deal with the effects of the smoke, second-hand, firsthand or otherwise, when you switch to an e-cig which doesn’t give off any smoke, just vapor. The liquid that you use to refill your cartridges to create this vapor are FDA approved which means they are safe to eat and ingest into your body – they can’t be harmful to inhale otherwise they wouldn’t have been approved. Of course, you are going to want to make sure that you purchase your supplies from a reputable source otherwise you can’t be sure what is contained within your e-cig and additional accessories.
With less litter, less smell, less cost and less damage to your health, e-cigs might be the perfect solution for you if you are already a smoker. Of course, if you are not, don’t start smoking just to look cool – there is no point in starting smoking at this point in your life, electronically or otherwise.
