Is the electronic cigarette really all it is cracked up to be? E-cigarette sellers would like you to think so, and even those who are looking at the science behind the electric cigarette might be swayed to agree. Are they overlooking a fatal flaw inherent to e-cigarettes?
Marketers of e-cigs take umbrage at the thought that bright colors, and chocolate or fruit flavorings are produced to appeal to an underage crowd; they are going so far as to call liars all those who even suggest this kind of marketing gimmick as being targeted to kids. Of course, it is hard to argue with the fact that bright colors and chocolate or fruit flavors generally do appeal to kids and young girls in particular. WE suggest doing your research and using authority sites such as SmokersLove or SmokeTastic, two of the best electronic cigarette review sites that can actually be trusted.
E-Cigarettes are in appearance quite similar to conventional cigarettes, one pro for smokers who want to switch. There are some obvious differences, though, which some smokers may view as cons. An E Cigarette does require some advanced planning since you must ensure the battery is charged. But this should not be a significant hindrance since chargers can plug into a regular house outlet along with portable charges for the car. Of course, E Cig Usa smokers can always carry a back-up charger. This difference alone between E Cigs and tobacco containing cigarettes is really quite worth the adjustment to lessen the risks associated with tobacco consumption.
An e-cigarette looks like a pen and functions as a smokeless nicotine delivery system. With more public, as well as private, venues becoming unfriendly to the blue, toxin infused haze, e-cigarettes appear to be the logical next step for smokers. Critics, on the other hand, suggest that an e-cigarette is simply the latest technology that allows addicts to indulge their unhealthy cravings.
Smokers here and there who have wanted to quit smoking have been stuck with smoking cessation methods like nicotine patches, gums and candies. But all these have been found to be ineffective to many users. The reason why many are dissatisfied with the above mentioned methods is because smokers cannot easily get over with the act of lighting a cigarette and puffing it with one hand. Nothing listed above meets this criterion.
Perhaps the oddest take on the debate thus far is the assertion that an e-cigarette is a homeopathic drug. Put forth by an avid seller and blogger, the logic is easy to follow, flawed though it may be. It also points to the muddling of various aspects of the smoking debate — taxation, tobacco industry involvement or lack thereof, appeal to age groups, smoking cessation, FDA and WHO authority to govern or regulate nicotine, and of course import rules – that have bled into the dialog over the safety of e-cigarettes.
