Electronic Cigarettes Vs. Traditional Cigarettes

Almost all traditional cigarette smokers know they should quit the habit, but it is far easier said than done. Most nicotine replacement therapies are unappealing or simply do not work for many smokers. The result is that they continue to smoke. However, the advent of the disposable electronic cigarette has changed the ball game. Electronic cigarettes can provide smokers with a healthier and less expensive alternative to traditional cigarette smoking, while providing smokers with the same feelings as smoking cigarettes.

Cigarettes contain up to 4,000 different toxic chemicals, including nicotine, which is the ingredient that smokers crave. Electronic cigarettes use an E liquid, which only has three simple ingredients. E liquid contains flavoring, nicotine and a vapor compound, all of which have been deemed safer to inhale than cigarette toxins. Smokers also can choose how much nicotine they want in the E liquid, sometimes called e-juice. Nicotine amounts can be as high as 25 mg or as low as 11 mg. This makes it easier for heavy smokers to gradually cut down the amount the nicotine they are inhaling. Using a gradual step-down approach, a smoker can become completely independent and free from nicotine addiction.

One of the major advantages to electronic cigarettes is that smokers can use them in places where smoking traditional cigarettes is banned, such as restaurants, pubs and some airports. However, most major airlines have banned open use of electronic cigarette devices while on board.

Another huge advantage of electronic cigarettes is the cost savings. Rechargeable electronic cigarettes provide the most bang for your money since smokers usually recover their initial cost of the device within a month of the purchase. E liquid refills for rechargeable devices are a fraction of the cost of a pack of cigarettes. There also are disposable electronic cigarettes, which typically last for about a week for a moderate smoker. Disposables come in most handy when smokers are at a workplace, are on the go a lot and when rechargeable devices need to be charged. Smokers always find that having at least one disposable electronic cigarette has come in handy at one time or another.
