I'll admit I have a habit of underestimating the usefulness of new technology. When everybody I knew got smartphones, I held out. If my wife hadn't upgraded to the iPhone 5 and handed her old iPhone 4 to me, I'd still be using the Nokia flip phone. I was the same way with electronic cigarettes. Stubbornly clinging to my Marlboro Reds, not even bothering to read e-cig reviews before dismissing them out of hand. The idea of “smoking” (or vaping) water mist mixed with nicotine seemed…well, weird.
If you enjoy smoking but want to do away with the tar and smoke, here are the main electronic cigarette facts that you should know.The physical resemblance of electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes to tobacco cigarettes, including the LED that lights up at the end when in use, is close enough to fool almost anyone. However, they do not need a lighter or a match; they are powered by a battery.
Millions of smokers have tried the patch, nicotine gum, and even approved cessation medications without satisfaction or results. This can be very frustrating for those who truly do want to kick the habit. It is a waste of money and a few days or weeks that were incredibly miserable. Most reports on why these other tools did not help to quit smoking say it is because of the habit itself; not because of the nicotine cravings but because of the actions you go through when smoking.
In an effort to curb smoking in Europe, the European Parliament approved comprehensive tobacco regulations, according to online news sites on October 8, 2013. The new regulations, passed in Strasbourg, France nixed approval of a proposal to regulate e-cigarettes as medical devices, a move that is being hailed as a victory by users and producers of electronic cigarettes. Regulating electronic cigarettes as medical devices would have put tight restrictions on the sale of e-cigs in pharmacies in some countries.
Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are battery-operated replacements for tobacco cigarettes. They are generally designed to look the same as tobacco cigarettes and the user even lets out puffs of 'smoke’ or vapor, but here, no lighter or match is used for combustion.
