Why Make the Switch: The Benefits of E-Cigarettes

For long time smokers, quitting or switching to an alternative to their favorite habit can be something of a challenge. Here are a few compelling arguments to make the switch from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes.

Toxins from tobacco burning are the primary cause of disease and death associated with nicotine use. Did you know that you ingest over 4000 chemicals - including 40 known carcinogens - with every inhale of a regular tobacco cigarette? E-cigarettes provide your nicotine hit by way of vaporized liquid, which can be flavored. No burning, no tobacco - no toxins. Thus, according to Cancer Research UK it is "almost certainly" a safer way to get your fix.

Looking to quit but can't go cold turkey? Going electronic might help you out. E-liquids come in various nicotine strengths which can help you regulate your intake and decrease it if necessary for a smoother transition to a smoke-free lifestyle.

Using e-cigarettes means that no burning happens: this eliminates ash, cigarette butts needing disposal, and the smell of smoke, among other things. The mist emitted from an e-cigarette is nothing but water vapor that dissipates in moments and leaves no trace. Switching to e-cigarettes also certainly reduces the risk of an accidental fire occurring, as in the case of discarded, still-burning tobacco cigarettes.

With e-cigarettes, you can vape anywhere - even indoors, because no second hand smoke is produced. No need to head out of the office or find an isolated spot to get your fix, just turn on and enjoy without ever leaving your spot.

Finally, while the cost of a high-end modified e-cigarette with a rebuildable atomizer might be intimidating at first, it is still going to end up being cheaper in the long run than buying tobacco cigarette packs anew if you happen to be a heavy user. Switching to e-cigarettes can save you more money, since you'll only need to buy e-liquids to keep going.
