If you're a regular smoker, then I'm sure you've heard about electronic cigarettes. An e-cigarette is a device that looks like a cigarette and contains a nicotine based liquid that vaporizes when inhaled which simulates the experience of smoking a traditional cigarette. This makes e-cigarettes a better substitute for real cigarettes and we will now look at 5 reasons why you should make the switch.
The first reason why electronic cigarettes are better is because they don't create any undesirable odor also you get to choose your nicotine e-liquid level. Everyone knows that traditional cigarettes stink and have a very distinctive smell which is off-putting to most people. The only people that don't find this smell offensive are smokers who have simply become desensitized to the smell. Cigarette smell not only lingers in the air but also clings to the smoker's clothes, hair, skin, vehicle and just about everything else. This smell is caused by the burning of tar, chemicals and tobacco in each cigarette. However, e-cigarettes don't create this problem since you won't be actually inhaling smoke, but vapor. The vapor evaporates almost immediately and doesn't leave behind any smell and if it does, it is usually a pleasant almost candy-like odor.
The next reason for choosing electronic cigarettes over traditional ones is because they are cheaper. Most smokers who smoke one pack per day usually spend a few hundred dollars per month on cigarettes. A pack used to cost a few cents to a dollar years ago, but they now cost between $7 and $12 dollars. This drastic increase in price was caused by inflation and added taxation on cigarettes. The cost of electronic cigarettes on the other hand is much cheaper in the long run. Sure, it will cost more to buy a kit, but once you have purchased a kit, all you have to do is buy refillable cartridges which comes off much cheaper than buying a pack of cigarettes almost every day. Best of all, e-cigarettes don't have any special added tax and with the development of technology, the cost of these will surely decrease over time.
The third reason is that e-cigarettes are much safer to use and have around the home than traditional cigarettes. Cigarettes are one of the leading causes of fire related death in the US that occur when a cigarette mistakenly causes items within the home to catch afire. Also, if you have children in your home, then they can be easily burned by a traditional cigarette which would never happen if you used an e-cigarette.
Next, we will look at the health reasons for choosing e-cigarettes over traditional ones. People who smoke traditional cigarettes have a high chance of developing throat and lung cancer, stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer's, pneumonia and a host of other diseases. The main reason for this is due to the large number of carcinogenic and dangerous chemicals in cigarettes. There is no claim that e-cigarettes are healthy for you, but they are definitely healthier than traditional cigarettes.
Lastly, an excellent reason to quit smoking traditional cigarettes and switch to e-cigarettes is the huge positive effect it will have on your social and personal life. Most non-smokers don't typically date smokers and if you switch to e-cigarettes, this can make your available dating pool larger. Also, society has become more aware of cigarettes and smoking in public or indoors is widely restricted. E-cigarettes can be smoked indoors or anywhere that cigarettes aren't allowed which is certainly a huge benefit.
In conclusion, the above 5 reasons to switch from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes are definitely too good to ignore. You will still enjoy the positive effects of smoking a cigarette without the negative ones. Sure, it might take a while to get adjusted, but once you do, I'm certain you will love it.
