If you're a smoker, you might have tried to kick the habit numerous times and in many different ways. From cutting down gradually to going cold turkey there are plenty of methods to reduce your nicotine intake, but there's something new on the market that might make your life that little bit easier – smokeless cigarettes. That's right, these quirky little devices are available from companies like Eshishin and could help you quit tobacco for good. Here are some of the benefits.
They contain fewer chemicals
Most people who smoke are addicted to the nicotine found in traditional cigarettes. While some electric alternatives are made using liquid nicotine, others are free from addictive chemicals meaning you won't get hooked on them for the wrong reasons. Electronic shisha sticks from Eshishin, for instance, contain no nicotine, tobacco or tar and claim to reduce the harmful effects of smoking. This means you can gradually wean yourself off regular cigarettes – which, according to the NHS, have been linked with over 50 serious health conditions such as cancer, strokes and chronic bronchitis – but still enjoy a puff or two if the mood takes you.
They can be used indoors
Why stand outside in the cold when you can smoke an electric cigarette indoors? Sure, it's been illegal to smoke tobacco-filled cigarettes in enclosed spaces since England's smoking ban was introduced back in 2007, but this law does not apply to the latest e-cig craze. Why? Well, although nicotine is still sometimes present there is no burning and because an odourless vapour is released into the air there aren't any nasty smells. While some people are still confused about the etiquette of smoking e-cigarettes indoors, it's reassuring to know you won't be escorted from your favourite bar or restaurant for puffing away. What's more, you won't stink of tobacco at the end of the day!
They'll keep your hands busy
Many people fail to stop smoking as they don't know what to do with their hands. It might sound strange to non-smokers, but the act of lifting a cigarette to and from the mouth becomes something of a habit and this is hard to break. The good news is, e-cigarettes offer the comfort of smoking without that harmful tobacco meaning you don't have to overcome too many milestones at once. Moreover, you can stop and start smoking as you please and won't require a lighter or an ashtray. You also won't have to worry about falling asleep and dropping your cigarette (which is a serious fire hazard) as there's no real flame.
E-cigarettes are a relatively new and fashionable craze that have caught the attention of many people over the last few years and it's easy to see why. Available in many different colours and styles, they're often seen as the ideal accessory for a night out and can be used to help you quit traditional cigarettes altogether.
