By Emin Andreasian from NEwhere Ecigs
Though the e-cigarette has actually been around since the 60’s, it did not really become marketable until the early 2000’s. Since it has come on the market, there has been some debate about its advantages over regular cigarette smoking.
The e-cigarette has quite a few advantages over real cigarettes. There are social, economic and even environmental reasons to use e-cigarettes.
Second hand smoke has long been an issue when you are around family and friends. The odorless vapors given off by an e-cig dissipates in seconds and reduces the concern about others breathing in that smoke. The e-cigarette also gives you the advantage of being able to smoke in areas that ban regular cigarettes. No more running outside for a smoke when out with friends. Most bars, restaurants and other public places allow e-cigs.
Using an e-cigarette can also save you money. Depending on the brand you use, a carton of cigarettes can cost up to of $90. An e-cig starter kit ranges in price from $25 to $100 depending on the brand and what is included in the kit. This may seem like a lot of money to spend, but replenishing supplies will only cost you an average of $12 per week. E-cigarettes have additional savings in that it is not taxable like regular tobacco products.
Believe it or not, electronic cigarettes have it over regular cigarettes when it comes to grooming. The stains and the bad breath are a thing of the past when you choose e-cigs over conventional tobacco products. There are over 600 different chemicals found in a normal cigarette. Since there is far less chemicals in e-cigarettes, the toll is a lot less on your teeth and breath. You and your clothes will also smell a lot better, no one likes smelling like an ashtray.
Saving the Planet
Using e-cigarettes is saving you money and saving your teeth, but did you know that you are also saving the planet? E-cigs are smokeless and do not contain tar, carbon monoxide or a variety of other toxins. Therefore, they do not give off the air-polluting particles like regular cigarettes or cigars. E-cigarettes do not leave behind unsightly cigarette butts. The environment suffers from the effects of the cigarette butts that are left on sidewalks and streets. These butts eventually wash off the streets and sidewalks and into drains and sewers. The chemicals contained in the filters are eventually end up in rivers and streams and damage wild life.
Using e-cigarettes instead of regular cigarettes also gives you choices. You can choose different levels of nicotine, or no nicotine at all. Some people may prefer to use the e-cig as a smoking cessation device. The e-cigarette can be used with varying nicotine strengths ranging from high strength to totally nicotine free.
In addition to choosing different levels of nicotine, you can also choose different flavors. There is a wide variety of tastes that can be added to you setup. Fruit flavors, coffee flavor or even tequila are just a few of the over 200 flavors available.
