Smoking is a bad habit that leads to addiction. It opposes a healthy living. It is expensive and risky to the smoker’s health that includes a long list of negative effects it could cause. Quitting is almost impossible to do for most people, worse case is if it is very impossible to quit.
Fortunately, there is a new alternative device that could help in smokers to quit this. To get rid of this fatal tobacco smoking addiction, a business group from Hong Kong invented this rising electronic cigarette. It was first available in the Chinese Market.
No one is confident enough to use a product without thoroughly checking and knowing what it is, how it is used and what effects it can bring.
Let us check every detail of this stick piece by piece.
What: Physically, it looks the same as the traditional cigarette. There are three main parts; the battery, the atomizer, and the cartridge. It is a device that uses an atomizer to vaporize liquid nicotine. It creates a vapor-like smoke when puffed and does not need flame. The battery used is high quality lithium which life span is usually about 4-8 hours for a standard use. It needs about 2-3 hours to fully recharge with its own charger. When it runs out of liquid flavor or liquid nicotine, it can be refilled when any flavor you want that can be bought in the market.
How: E-cig uses an atomizer to vaporize liquid nicotine when you puff on it. The cartridge has a cotton-like material diluted with nicotine, propylene glycol and flavor. When the heating element in the atomizer chamber is activated, it produces a vapor-like smoke through inhaling.
The battery has to be unscrewed to charge it. To clean, get the atomizer loosen. The cartridge – where the liquid nicotine actually goes can be replaced and refilled. Puff on directly on the end of the cartridge just like puffing a traditional cigar and then it gives a red light on the other end.
Price: Just because it has an expensive name, it does not mean that it is expensive too. It is actually less expensive than the traditional cigarette. Let us do the math. Usually, a carton of cigar costs a minimum of $ 35 that can run up to $ 75 for a whole week use. On average, an E-cigar starter kit costs about $ 70, though sample kits are sometimes available for $ 25 which is lasts a week use. The refill kit ranges from $ 20 to $ 20 a month. It saves you $ 10 a week to a hundred dollars per month.
There is no risk of tar damage to your body or any harmful health effects. No problem with smell or any secondhand smoke. Though it contains nicotine, it is still safe to use and can lessen the addiction possibilities. Another reason why it helps to quit smoking is that it cannot be used when the battery runs out. In this way, smoker cannot do anything but to control himself. This is where self-control comes in. Smokers are advised to try this.
