They want to know if there are any risks involved in using an electronic cigarette to quit smoking or as a tobacco substitute. This is a valid question and it needs to be answered so users of electronic or smokeless cigarettes can be assured that they are not just replacing one unhealthy item with another. Smokers have been praying for a way to quit smoking that is safe, effective and reduces the discomfort and suffering of quitting smoking. The good news is that electronic cigarettes are the prefect solution.

While there have not been any government studies of electronic cigarettes, many of the manufacturers have spent a great deal of money having their products tested by independent laboratories. Doctors and tobacco researchers, including those at major universities, have also weighed in on the subject of electronic cigarette safety. Much has been written and said about this amazing new product and the vast majority has been quite favorable. The overwhelming opinion of the experts is that using an electronic cigarette is much safer than smoking a tobacco cigarette.

Most importantly, while electronic cigarettes do contain the addictive chemical, nicotine, the way the nicotine is absorbed into the users system is much safer than tobacco cigarettes.

The dangerous chemicals and carcinogens that are produced by tobacco cigarettes are released when the tobacco is burned and then inhaled. With the electronic cigarette, there is no flame involved and nothing is burned. This is the great safety advantage of electronic cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes. A brief description of how the smokeless cigarette works will explain why it is a safer way to get the nicotine smokers crave.

The electronic cigarette is made up of a two part tube that actually looks and functions much like a real cigarette. The main section is a metal tube that corresponds to the part of a cigarette that contains the tobacco. This section contains a battery and a heating element that vaporizes the nicotine solution. The second part of the electronic cigarette corresponds to the filter of a cigarette and it contains the nicotine cartridge. When a smoker uses an electronic cigarette, they inhale just like they would a real cigarette and the battery powered heating element vaporizes a small amount of the nicotine solution into a vapor that simulates the smoke of a real cigarette. The smoker is not only able to actually inhale the vapor as if it were smoke but they get approximately the same amount of nicotine with each drag that they would get if they were actually smoking a tobacco cigarette. The user satisfies their bodies need for nicotine while avoiding all the dangerous chemicals that are produced when you burn tobacco.

For non smokers, electronic cigarettes are a safety godsend.

Because nothing is burned, there is no second hand smoke to endanger the health or safety of a non smoker. No chance of getting lung disease, heart conditions or cancer from being in the same room as the user of an electronic cigarette. Not only is there no second hand smoke, but the danger of an accidental fire is totally eliminated with the electronic cigarette. No one has to worry about a smoker falling asleep with a lit cigarette and burning down the house. In this regard, electronic cigarettes are absolutely safe.

The electronic cigarette has another safety benefit that must be mentioned.

The nicotine cartridge used in the electronic cigarette is available in a wide range of different strengths. By reducing the strength of the cartridge every few weeks, the user can slowly and comfortably lower the amount of nicotine they are taking into their system until they are nicotine free. There is no other quit smoking device that allows you to fulfill your bodies need for nicotine while safely simulating the entire process of smoking. There is no other quit smoking device that allows you to control how much nicotine you will be getting in each drag while you slowly reduce your nicotine intake.

There is no doubt that smoking tobacco is unhealthy. No one wants to suffer the risks of lung disease or cancer but giving up smoking is just so difficult that many people have given up hope. Now there is a safe and effective quit smoking product on the market that has helped thousands and thousands of smokers give up the habit. By using the electronic cigarette they were able to wean themselves off of tobacco, without the stress and suffering of quitting cold turkey. They didn’t need prescription drugs or patches to quit. They used the simple electronic cigarette and from the first drag, they were no longer taking all those poisons into their lungs. If you are thinking about quitting, try the electronic cigarette for yourself and give up tobacco today.
