There’s no denying that cigarettes and tobacco products are not only addictive but harmful to your short-term and long-term health. Every day, thousands of people are trying to quit but without much success.
If you’re trying to quit smoking, or you just want a healthier way to get your fix, you should consider switching to e-cigarettes. Here are five good reasons you should make the switch to electronic cigarettes.
1. You don’t have to worry about second-hand smoke
Electronic cigarettes consist of a battery, a vaporization chamber that contains nicotine liquid, and a filter. Because you don’t have to light a flame and burn paper, tobacco, and harmful chemicals, you can put fewer toxins into your body and in the air around you.
2. E-cigarettes have the look and feel of traditional cigarettes
E-cigarettes are designed to look exactly like traditional cigarettes, and can often be mistaken for them. You don’t have to give up the physical motions of smoking a cigarette, and you still get nicotine — just without the added chemicals.
3. Electronic cigarettes can help you quit smoking
Most e-cigarette consumers use them as an alternative to tobacco; quite often as a tool to help them quit smoking altogether. E-cigarettes are effectively the same as wearing a nicotine patch or chewing nicotine gum, but you still get the feel of puffing and holding a cigarette, which makes them an even more effective way to ease off your addiction slowly.
4. E-cigarettes are easy to buy and use
Even though they’ve only been on the market since the mid-2000s, e-cigarettes have found a place in drugstores and outlet malls across the US and around the world. They’re rechargeable and reusable; all you have to do is refill them. As more research and regulations take place, e-cigarettes are probably going to become ever more popular.
5. Traditional cigarettes are banned in many locations
If you smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes, you’re likely to run into many laws and regulations when it comes to where and when you can smoke. In the US and many other countries, many cities and neighborhoods have designated smoking areas and restrictions on how far from a building entrance you have to be to smoke.
Other countries have gone so far as to ban tobacco cigarettes altogether, which makes e-cigarettes the perfect alternative.
