If you haven’t heard of electronic cigarettes yet you have probably been hiding in doors and staying off of the computer. They have become the rage with smokers over the past several years after appearing on shows like The Doctors, Good Morning America, and the movie the Traveler with Johnny Dep. Celebrities like Leonardo DeCaprio and Katherine Heigle have been smoking them along with thousands of regular smokers that just want to become healthier.
Electronic cigarettes don’t have any tar, tobacco, or other harmful chemicals so various studies have shown they are 99% better for you than regular cigarettes. Doctors still wish you would quit all together but a 1% health risk is a whole lot better than 100% health risk.
Interestingly the FDA is not behind these. No surprise that a government agency would rather promote harmful chemicals in various drugs that stand behind something that could actually help you without the involvement of big pharma or insurance.
The proof is in the pudding, so to speak. Several smokers I have chatted with told me that after using ecigs they could “smell my shampoo for the first time” and “taste flavors in dinner that I didn’t know where there”. Other people talked about having more energy and not getting sick so much. Electronic cigarettes have nicotine so you still get the addictive part of the cigarette but without the chemicals that harm your body.
People that want to try them can start with either a disposable ecig that is thrown away after a day (or longer depending on how much you smoke) or buy a rechargeable device that you can purchase refills for. You plug it in every day and add a new refill when you are done smoking it. Each refill is supposed to be a pack of cigarettes so you can save money too.
