What is an Electronic Cigarette and How does it work?
An electronic cigarette or an e-cigarette, is a battery powered device that looks and tastes like a real cigarette but does not contain the tar and 3000 other chemicals that tobacco has. It provides the nicotine but without the burning of tobacco, the second hand smoke and the lingering smell.
The white part of the electronic cigarette is a battery and the part that looks like the filter has a nicotine/propylene glycol solution and heating element inside. (Propylene Glycol is a food additive that makes artificial fog in theatrical productions). When you puff on an electronic cigarette a microchip heats up the atomizer in the cartridge which evaporates the solution so you feel it when you inhale, and you see “smoke” when you exhale. The smoke is actually just a water vapor that quickly evaporates. Users of e-cigarettes call it “vapeing”.
There are a lot of behavioral and psychological addictions associated with smoking. You have your routines: One cigarette with coffee, another after lunch, two in the car, a smoke after writing out the bills, etc. Electronic cigarettes fulfill these needs -- which is something the patch and inhalers cannot do.
The e-cigarette cartridges come in varying amounts of nicotine, including “0” for those who want to reduce the amount of nicotine they inhale. Many smokers find that with electronic cigarettes, they can take 5 or 6 puffs and put it away, picking their e-cigarette up and putting it away whenever they want. Whereas before, if they felt satisfied after smoking half of a traditional cigarette, they continued to finish it since it was already lit. As a result, many “vapers” find they “smoke” less on an electronic cigarette in a day than they did with tobacco.
With no second hand smoke many people use their electronic cigarette in the car, at their desk, in a bar and other public places where cigarettes are normally banned.
With electronic cigarettes you can continue to indulge your pleasures, in a better way.
