They are becoming one of the most popular ways to quit smoking, and after years of research, it turns out that it is much safer than traditional cigarettes, and are being endorsed by many famous doctors, including Dr. Stork of the popular television show, The Doctors. Electronic Cigarettes have all different looks, but many look just like a regular cigarette, blows smoke like a regular cigarette, but the smoke that is sent into the air is not full of chemicals as a regular cigarette, but is only air and water vapor, that smells of the flavor that you have chosen to smoke at that time. It doesn’t have any of the harmful, cancerous chemicals in a regular cigarette; Mostly, it helps curb smoking by helping you break the habit slowly, by feeling as if you are smoking, even though you are not. There are many companies to choose from, and each has their own flavors that they offer. Most of the flavors are quite pleasant, and give the smoker the feeling that they are having a cigarette without actually smoking at all.
Just a few of the benefits claimed from the electronic cigarettes are as follows:

The researchers at Boston University School of Public Health has done many studies on electronic cigarettes, and have come to some exciting conclusions. In 2010, the researchers concluded that electronic cigarettes are safer than the real cigarettes, and may aid in the habit of smoking, according to Boston University researchers. The researchers stated, “Electronic cigarettes were found to be much safer than traditional tobacco ones, and had a level of toxicity similar to existing nicotine replacements”. In the report the level of carcinogens in electronic cigarettes were found to be as much as 1,000 times lower than regular cigarettes. It also shows early evidence of electronic cigarettes may help people stop smoking by simulating a tobacco cigarette.
Thank you to the Boston University School of Public Health for all the information you have provided, and for doing the research necessary to establish the safety of the electronic cigarette.
Doctors have recently suggested that the risk of electronic cigarettes are no more than drinking caffeine, and that there is virtually no risk of getting cancer as a result of the electronic cigarette. The risk in regular cigarettes do not come from the nicotine itself, but the real threat in traditional cigarettes come from the tobacco smoke and the hundreds of other chemicals that are added.
The popular television show, “The Doctor”, actually featured the electronic cigarette as one of 2010’s ten key health trends. The video will be included in this article, in case you are interested in watching it. Dr. Travis Stork stated, “The electronic gives you nicotine, but it doesn’t give you any of the other 4,000 chemicals from a cigarette that can cause cancer, among other problems”.
The other great thing about the electronic cigarette is that there are a number of businesses that are allowing you to smoke it inside, because it poses no health threats to your fellow patrons, which gives you the freedom to smoke wherever you want, although if your electronic cigarette looks like a normal cigarette, be ready to be confronted and explain that what you are smoking is not a traditional cigarette, but the new electronic cigarette, and that it is only water vapor that is being blown into the air. There are many people that are still not familiar with the trend yet, so until it is more well known, you may want to order a color that does not so much resemble a traditional cigarette. Most companies have a variety of colors and styles to choose from. Even certain workplaces are allowing their workers to use their electronic cigarettes. It seems to help production, and keep their employees from having to take so many cigarette breaks throughout the day, so everyone wins.
As of 2010, over 700,000 people had already switched over to electronic cigarettes, and there have been many success stories of people who were able to either slowly progress to non-smoking, but there have also been many people who were smoke free very quickly due to this new invention.
Beverly, a smoker of fifteen years was interviewed in 2010. She had smoked almost 2 packs a day for all those years and thought she would never quit, but after trying the electronic cigarette, she had quit completely within 2 days. That is truly incredible. She stated, “As a smoker, I would recommend this product to anyone who plans on becoming cigarette free. It’s a great alternative, and it still gives you the action of smoking. You inhale and blow out, unlike an awkward nicotine patch or chewing gum”.
With a great amount of positive testimonials, it is expected that electronic cigarettes will quickly become the number one choice of an alternative to traditional cigarettes for those who are ready to quit, and with the cost of cigarettes rising and the dangers to your health that we learn more and more about everyday, this is sure to catch on quickly and become America’s new aid in the war to stop smoking.
It is a great idea to shop around the internet at all the different shops available, all the different types of electronic cigarettes out there, and compare prices, and flavors. Each company has their own flavors, and sometimes you just have to order several flavors that sound good to you at first, try them out, and pick out your favorites. If none of those flavors suit you, you can shop around for flavors at any of the electronic cigarette websites, and you will find a multitude of different flavors that you can try out. It may take some shopping around, but there is no doubt you will end up with the perfect flavor for you. Vanilla, peppermint, reds (tastes like a Marlboro), cola, even fruity flavors are available. You just have to do your research and shop around, until you find your favorite flavors. A good tip, though not always true, is if you like the taste of it in a candy or a gum, you may very well like the taste of the electronic cigarette flavor.
You also need to go to many different sites, because there are a multitude of sites that are constantly running package specials to get you started. They will include the electronic cigarette (sometimes 2 will be included), several flavors of your choice, a case for carrying your device. Although the price to get started and buying all the materials to begin may seem high, just think of how much you have spent over the past year on traditional cigarettes, and these electronic cigarettes last much longer and are much less expensive to maintain.
If you have only been smoking for a short time, or have been smoking for fifteen, twenty, or more years, this is a safe alternative that can get you on the road to being smoke free in no time. Most people struggle with the habit of having something in your hands, puffing on something, and the breaks that smoking allows you. With the electronic cigarette, you can still have all those things, just in a healthier way, and it eliminates all the smoke smell, bad breathe, and most importantly, the damage that is done to your body with every puff of a traditional cigarette.
