‘Old habits die hard’, the cliché holds true to the last word. Moreover, if the old habit is that of smoking, it takes more than determination to quit smoking. With the advancement in technology, there are many devices available in the market that can assist people to quit smoking. There are several companies working day in and day out to offer smokers such products that can get them rid of their habit of smoking. There are several products available such as nicotine patches and gums for the smokers. Despite the regular use of these pioneering products, the smokers find it hard to do away with their smoking habit.
The introduction of electronic cigarette or the e-cigarette or the electric cigarette has proved to be a boon to the smokers. This product is very similar to the make and feel of a conventional cigarette. It also emits smoke, burns at one end when a person draws but there is no fire on that end. The best part about this product is, it curbs the craving for smoking in a person, and as a result, the person quits smoking. Another amazing fact about this electronic cigarette is it does not contain tobacco. The smoke inhaled by the smoker does not consist of highly toxic and harmful carcinogens that are present in the tobacco smoke. These carcinogens are harmful to both the smoker and the people standing next to them.
The nicotine cartridge in the electronic cigarette consists of liquid nicotine. When the person inhales or draws from the electronic cigarettes, the small atomizer present in the e-cigarette turns a small amount of nicotine into vapor. The atomizer is powered by a small battery that functions when a person draws from the e-cigarette. The vapor inhaled by the smoker from this cigarette gives them nicotine hit in a matter of seconds. On the other hand, nicotine patches and gums take at least a minute to give the user the nicotine hit they require. It also consists of a small LED light at the end of the cigarette that glows when a person draws. This simulates a feeling of smoking a regular cigarette but with no side effects. The smokers can have the feeling of smoking a regular cigarette, without harming their health.
The nicotine cartridges are available in various strengths. They can be made available to the smoker in full, half and minimal strength. These cartridges lay emphasis on the idea to make a person quit smoking. Once a person start smoking from an electronic cigarette, they have the option of reducing the strength of the nicotine cartridge to a minimal level until they quit smoking for good.
There is an array of advantages of an electronic cigarette over nicotine patches and gums. The foremost advantage is that these e-cigarettes give the person nicotine hit in seconds. The other major reason is these electronic cigarettes are giving the person the feeling of holding and smoking from a real cigarette. This is one of the main reasons that people are unable to quit smoking despite using gums and patches.
