In this fast-paced life, there will always be a certain thing that would keep us moderately anchored to our dispositions in order for us to survive; each one of us has this what we call indulgence. Others find it in shopping, while some do it through spending some time reading books or engaging into social or physical activities. There are also a significant number of people who indulge into smoking. While there is this not so good perception to many people about smoking and its not so good effects to the human systems, technology has paved its way and made some remarkable advances that can somehow erase the traditional mentality of people with regards to this addiction.
What is an E-cigarette?
E-cigarette, or the electronic cigarette, is a battery-powered device which is used to replace the tobacco or the traditional cigarette sticks that smokers use. This device look very much similar to the real cigarette with its white cylindrical tube, brown filter and red glowing tip. This uses a liquid nicotine which has been dissolved in a water solution and propylene glycol, which gives the user the very same experience he/she has when smoking with the traditional ones. The battery heats up the nicotine which immediately creates vapor that are sent to the lungs - making one to feel like smoking without really smoking.
Why Use E-cigarette?
Certainly, why use this improvised device when you can smoke all you want using the traditional method of smoking? Why waste time reading this article when you can always reach the bottom of your pocket, pick a cigarette and begin smoking? Why do the hassle of purchasing this item when all you need is within your reach? Well, let me present to you the top five benefits of using e-cigarette.
1. No Law Prohibits the Use of E-cigarette
With the numerous protests of health-wise people regarding the total ban of smoking, there has not been a law issued to prohibit one to use e-cigarette as a means of satisfying ones cravings. This has been seriously subjected to many disagreements within the total ban since this device is not as hideous as the cigarette sticks used before.
2. Encourages Smokers to Quit
We know a quite big number of people who have been saying that they wanted to quit smoking, however, they really find it hard to do so. Yes, withdrawal indeed is not easy. The feeling of getting something which has been a part of your system is never an easy task. Now, how can we address this dilemma? Well, one can always try using the e-cigarette. Though the percentage of those who have finally stopped smoking after using e-cigarette is not that big, the significant number of people who then realized smoking is not for them is not that too small also to be taken for granted. More information, as provided by The Christian Science Monitor last January 9, 2014, are presented here to regulate the use of e-cigarettes and not be dependent on nicotine.
3. Good for the Health
Although a few would want to subject this into an argument, the growing number of testimonies on the good effects to health of the e-cigarette is something one must not miss. It is already a given fact that smoking leads to serious diseases and sickness like stroke, heart attack, lung cancer, throat cancer, pneumonia, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and countless others but with the help of e-cigarette, these sickness can be prevented or minimized because you only get the feeling if smoking without the actual smoking itself! Significant researches even claim its effectiveness in curing certain sickness like diabetes and high blood pressure.
4. Empower Tobacco Farmer
One of the many reasons why there has been a massive protest on the use of e-cigarette is because of the fact that the tobacco farmers will surely lose their jobs if people finally decides to lean unto e-cigs. Now, this would be a serious problem, however, one can always look on the brighter side of this problem. With the emergence of e-cigarettes, tobacco farmers will no longer become farmers for they would eventually cling to the changes that are happening - finally, then, making them accept e-cigarettes. With this, the former tobacco farmers will already become e-cigarette entrepreneur - giving them due opportunity to engage into a better and more economic job.
5. Way Cheaper and Better
Unlike the traditional cigarettes, e-cigarette has not been subjected to any sort of taxes, thus, they they are way cheaper compared to the former cigarettes. They are also a hundred times better specially on the odor aspect. It is a common knowledge that cigarettes have this distinctive odor on cigar which clings to the smoker's body, clothes, belongings and even to the place they are staying. While the smell is quite normal and tolerable for them, for those who are asthmatic or unconditioned for those scent, they find it unbearable. With the use of e-cigarette, one can already go wherever he/she pleases with whoever he/she wants because e-cigarettes do not puff smokes with distinctive odor in comparison to the traditional cigarette that smokers use.
Electronic cigarettes are not mainly designed to replace the traditional cigarettes but to also aide some other serious problems. The society might perceived this negatively but smokers must keep in mind that this indulgence is not to impress others but to express all the stress and emotions that are feeling because all those things might eat them up sooner than expected.
