What Exactly Are Electronic Cigarettes?


The best thing abut vaping is that you can continue to get that feeling of smoking, without having to inhale the toxins that are common in normal cigarettes. Normal cigarettes are addictive because of the nicotine they contain, in combination with the other chemicals added by tobacco companies. Nicotine by itself has been found to be safe, but all of the other chemicals in cigarettes are designed to send that nicotine through your body quickly. It’s these chemicals that destroy your body and lungs and eventually cause cancer.

The tar that coats your lungs, the smoke and other toxins that burn through the delicate tissue inside your body – that doesn’t exist in electronic cigarettes. What you’re inhaling is not smoke, it’s vapor. So you’re not really smoking at all. You’re “vaping.”

The battery of a vaporizer heats up the ingredients of the e-juice to the point of it turning into a vapor. When you inhale the vapor, it’s warm and typically has a throat hit, so it still feels like smoke and it comes out of your mouth like smoke too. This gives you the feeling like you’re actually smoking. For me, this experience makes it so that I don’t crave a cigarette right after vaping. An e-cig actually gets the job done.

E-juices contain only Propylene Glycol (a common food additive), vegetable glycerine, purified water, nicotine and flavor. You have a pretty good idea of what you’re putting into your body with an electronic cigarette.

Since you can purchase e-juice at various levels of nicotine – 24mg, 16mg, 8mg, 6mg, 4mg and even 0mg – you can use an electronic cigarette to eventually wean yourself to lower levels of nicotine and maybe from nicotine altogether if that’s your goal.

There are many great flavors too, such as chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, but if you prefer the taste of regular tobacco, you can get that too.

A cartridge will last approximately as long as one pack of cigarettes and at a fraction of the price. You can purchase a 5-pack of cartridges for about $15. Depending on where you live, 5 packs of cigarettes would cost anywhere from $30-$45 or more.

Or if you decide to use a refillable tank, a 30 ml bottle of e-juice is equivalent to about 15 packs of cigarettes and typically costs around $16. That’s a huge savings.

The money you stand to save by using an electronic cigarette is worth the price alone.

You can get a full kit with everything you need for as low as $60. This includes two batteries, a charger, and a variety of cartridges.

Or you can build your own advanced kit, which would allow you to refill your own tank for cheaper, give you a larger variety of e-juice flavors to choose from and a lot more battery power.

When you have these things, all you have to worry about buying in the future is additional cartridges or e-juice. Your battery can be charged as often as you need it and should be able to hold enough charge for one full day of heavy vaping and even longer for more casual smokers.

There are plenty of reasons to buy an electronic cigarette. You’ll also feel great knowing that you don’t have to fork over your hard-earned money for the ridiculous prices of tobacco cigarettes.
