The Benefits of the Electronic Cigarette
The Electronic Cigarette is taking the world by storm as a healthier alternative to the tar and nicotine enhanced traditional cigarette, providing a wide variety of health benefits and positive side effects that many of its users were not originally expecting. Many people are making the switch simply so that they can continue to smoke in public places, but the discoveries of the many other additional advantages are leading to an increase in their popularity of the E-Cig as well.
Smokers of the Electronic Cigarette are witnessing some unique and rather pleasant side effects, such as increased energy, higher levels of concentration, and easier breathing during normal day to day activities and during their workout routines. This is even causing some to rethink their initial reasons for choosing the E-Cigarette as a legal alternative to public smoking, using them now as a transitional device to quit their daily tobacco habit altogether. Although the smokeless cigarette can often be confused for “the real thing” by strangers in public venues, in most circumstances it is considered a legal and viable alternative to the regular form of nicotine-laced cigarette.
Now you can Smoke in Public
With the rise in public demand to rid our bars, nightclubs, restaurants and hotel rooms of damaging second hand smoke, these public venues are prohibiting smoking tobacco products more and more. Several states have even passed laws against it. The Electronic Cigarette is a legal alternative because the “smoke” is actually only an artificially flavored water vapor.
Increase Physical and Mental Energy
As users of this E-Cigarette begin to purchase these devices in large numbers, they are often surprised at the positive physical and mental side effects. An increased energy boost is often felt within the very first few days, as their lungs are not being filled with the noxious poisons of tar and nicotine. Breathing becomes less labored, and they also are becoming more active, feeling better and stronger with each passing day.
Curbs Cravings for Caffeine
Remarkably, the Electronic Cigarette is even leading people to drink less coffee, even without really trying. Our bodies have a natural way of self-regulating our energy levels so that they remain consistent. When we drink coffee, this raises our body’s levels of physical stimulation. What’s a good way to counteract this effect? Smoke a cigarette! As more and more people are switching to the E-Cigarette, their desire for larger amounts of coffee are also decreasing simultaneously.
Fight Oral Fixation
Smoking traditional nicotine based cigarettes is a physical and mental addiction that is much more than just a physical need to get a quick “nicotine fix” or high. There is also a mental addiction to the sensation of holding the cigarette up to your mouth and inhaling deeply. This is called an “oral fixation”. There is an addiction to the taste, but here is also an addiction to the inhaling and exhaling of the smoke, the act of sitting in a chair with a lit cigarette in your hand, or the appeal of talking on the phone while smoking a cigarette. Most smokers will tell you that driving their car is the most addictive place for them to pick up and smoke! Breaking these habits once and for all is found to be much easier with E-Cigarettes.
Healthier than Quitting “Cold Turkey”
The Electronic Cigarette allows you to wean yourself off of one addictive process at a time. Because the “smoke” is actually a less harmful water vapor, you can continue to enjoy the sensations of smoking while gradually decreasing the strength of the taste. These E-Cigarettes come in menthol eliquid flavors and standard eliquid flavors in varying levels. Eventually, you can decrease your need for the taste of the nicotine completely and then concentrate on the more mental addictive processes of the “smoking experience”.
Reduce Second Hand Smoke
The Electronic Cigarette was first offered to the public in China back in 2004, coming to the United States shortly thereafter in 2007. Because the E-Cigarette does not contain the excessive levels of nicotine that cause the stinging of the eyes, the noxious fumes, or the unpleasant smell of traditional cigarettes, there is no second hand smoke to worry about for those nearby.
The smoke is basically replaced with a form of water vapor that is comprised of artificial flavorings, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, all environmentally friendly substances that are legal for public ingestion. This vapor may have the appearance of smoke and provide the mental pleasures associated with smoking, but is not at all harmful to others in close proximity.
