How do you use e-cigarettes and why you should switch from smoking tobacco to e-cigarettes. Let Cloudvpainguk help you quit smoking this October!!
What Is An E-cigarette?
The e-cigarette is an electronic device that mimics smoking but without inhaling tobacco smoke. It does this by vapourising a flavoured e-liquid containing propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerine, with a little nicotine, you do not inhale tar or carbon monoxide, 2 of the most damaging elements of tobacco cigarettes.
Are E-cigarettes Safe?
E-cigarettes cannot ever be deemed to be completely safe, however the risk to health of using an e-cigarette is a fraction of that of a tobacco cigarette. Even though e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is harmless to the human body in these quantities, they do not contain all of the other harmful chemicals that tobacco cigarettes contain.
There Are Different Types Of E-cigarette
Cigalikes- Look like a plastic tobacco cigarette (some even glow at the end when you inhale). You can get different flavours and are usually disposable. These are inexpensive and easy to use though may not give you the nicotine hit that you need.
Vape Pens- These are very common and sold in most supermarkets, general stores and petrol stations. Look a little like a pen and a similar size. Easy to use and refillable with e-liquid. They have rechargeable batteries and are a great way to start with e-cigarettes.
Pod systems- These are relatively new to the market. They can come in different shapes and sizes. They are easy to use, refillable and rechargeable. The main advantage of these is that they are designed to be leak free, therefore fit neatly into a pocket or bag.
Mod Systems- More advanced style of vaping and generally have settings that are variable. They are designed for advanced vapers who want to experiment with different settings and e-liquids.
Which One Is Right For Me?
If your just giving up smoking and are looking to try an e-cigarette to aid you in this, then my advice is always to go with the pen style kits. They are inexpensive and take refillable e-liquid. The advantage of this is that you can easily experiment with different nicotine levels to get the type that suits you. A heavy smoker should should consider starting with a higher Nicotine level, the highest you can get is 18mg.
Do they Really Help To Quit Smoking?
There are thousands of people all over the country who have successfully switched from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes. There is a "but" there are also lots of people who have tried them and gone back to e-cigarettes. I find that the main reason for this is bad advice. Either sold the wrong kit or sold the wrong e-liquid by getting advice from poor shops or a friend who thinks they know what they are doing. Shop around ask questions in different shops and then make an informed decision, or send me a message or even call me and I will do my best to give you the best advice I can, no obligation.
