An electronic tobacco product is a hand-held electronic device that mimics traditional tobacco smoking. It usually consists of a tank, an atomizer, and a power source like a rechargeable battery or an AC adapter. Rather than tobacco, the user also inhales nicotine. Like with a cigar, using an electronic tobacco product is commonly known as “vaping.”
Electronic cigarettes have been linked to serious lung damage. Like tobacco smoke, electronic cigarettes are cancer causing agents. Inhaling them over time can cause chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Vaping has been known to result in a build-up of bacteria in the mouth and throat. Users should be sure to brush their teeth after using any electronic cigarettes, as well as while they are sitting on the toilet.
If you get addicted to e-cigarettes, it is extremely difficult to quit. The nicotine content makes it nearly impossible to wean yourself off of. It is recommended that people who use these products to slowly stop smoking cigarettes completely give up e-cigarettes. This process takes longer than it would if you were to quit smoking cigarettes cold turkey, but it is easier when you consider that you can get addicted to something again, much easier than it is to get addicted to something that will take longer to rid of.
However, people do still find it convenient to use e-cigarettes. A great deal of people who begin to experience nicotine withdrawals will often resume smoking again within a few days of quitting, due to the fact that the withdrawal effects of Nicotine are so mild. Some people who use vapourisers to stop smoking also often use them to “self-medicate” for depression or anxiety. This is especially common among men, who may start using nicotine patches and gums to combat depression or other mood related disorders when they have been smoking for several years.
It is recommended that all ex-smokers give up smoking using vaporisers, in order to avoid serious lung damage which can happen from prolonged smoking. However, there are a growing number of people who continue to smoke using vapourisers, despite the risks. These people may be suffering from psychological problems or personal problems unrelated to their smoking, such as stress at work, worries about money, or other problems. Many of these people will try to “self-medicate” for one reason or another, and using e-cigarettes instead of cigarettes can be a convenient way to cope with those problems, or for a bit of fun.
There are now more reports of people who are experiencing serious lung damage as a result of vaping, compared with the number of reports of people who start smoking cigarettes and gradually develop lung cancer. It is not clear why this is the case. Nicotine, which is present in vaporiser, is thought by many to cause the same problems as tobacco smoke. Many of the vaporisers contain some amount of nicotine, but it is unlikely that the level of nicotine is high enough to cause serious lung damage. Nicotine is present in significantly lower concentrations in pure e-juice than it is in cigarettes, so users do not start to experience nicotine withdrawal symptoms when they quit smoking, which is another important advantage of vapourisers over cigarettes.
Nicotine is present in all e-liquid, but it is still important to get your nicotine fix from somewhere else, so that you do not become addicted to it. It is widely believed that e-juices are a great replacement for cigarettes because they are tasty, refreshing and easy to obtain (most juices are available in vending machines) and they give a decent amount of nicotine in a short space of time, without the smoker getting addicted to it. Therefore, if you do not want to get addicted to it, you should make it a habit to only use e-liquids when you need to actually feel like smoking, and try to forget about e-juices as much as possible.
Although most people who start using vaporizers to help them stop smoking will quickly get hooked on them, it is a good idea to gradually increase the amount of e-juices that you consume to slowly break the habit. If you ever feel that you are becoming addicted to them, you should stop using them altogether, or go back to the old habits that you were using before. The reason why e-juices can be so good for people trying to stop smoking is because they offer an alternative to cigarette. When you are at the end of your pipe, you do not want to have something in your mouth that tastes like ash and nicotine. You would much rather taste something nice.
