E cigarettes have become a pretty hot topic lately. It goes without saying that the cigarette companies are none too keen on their surge in popularity, every dollar spent on an e-cigarette is cash from their profits.
There is a lot of information flying around the internet and social media sites about e cigarettes – some is true and some of it definitely isn’t.
Here are a few of the most important details you need to know about e cigarettes.
They Don’t Contain Tobacco
Although they may be labeled to some extent as “tobacco products” they don’t contain any tobacco at all. E cigarettes are devices which are made up of metal, plastics and a small electronic device. The liquid which is used in an e cig contains many common substances which have already been approved safe for human use. This eliquid does not contain any tobacco.
E Cigarettes Don’t Produce Smoke
You do not “smoke” an e-cigarette, even though it may look like you do. There is no cigarette smoke so the user cannot be smoking, they user is actually “vaping” and vapor. This brings up another important topic. Because there is no smoke and no fire they are also much cleaner. You don’t need to worry about dirty ashtrays or foul smelling cigarette smoke clinging to your clothes, breath, hair and home. They don’t produce any smoke at all which means that you can use them in more places than you can smoke a traditional type of tobacco cigarette.
People Switch to E Cigarettes to Help Them Stop Smoking
Although there are no guarantees that switching to e cigarettes will help anyone to stop smoking altogether, the majority of people do make the switch in order to do so. They are not marketed as a device to help people quit smoking but that doesn’t mean that many people don’t turn to them for that very reason. Anything which can help a person to stop smoking is surely a good thing.
E Cigarettes Are Not Targeted Towards Children
Many e cigarette companies have developed weird and wonderful flavors for their e cig liquid which has understandably lead to criticism that they are becoming an attractive option for children. Don’t believe it – they are not marketed towards children in any way, shape or form.
These are just a few of the things you need to know about e cigs – it really does make good sense to make the switch.
