E Cigarette Make Quitting The Easy Way

Quitting The Easy Way With an E Cigarette ; Part 1

I started smoking at 12 years old by stealing cigarettes from the tray my mother would put out for guests at parties. Since i am now 59 years old, i can remember a time when just about every adult smoked and didn’t feel guilty about it. When it finally dawned on me that cigarette smoking was seriously harmful to my health, i embarked on my current 35 year journey to quit smoking. Well folks, after dozens of failed attempts to quit, it looks like there may finally be hope for me.

This time i have a new weapon in my arsenal that may really work in my battle to quit smoking. I’m going to be using the new invention called an electronic or smokeless cigarette. This device was invented by a Chinese health practitioner in 2003 and over the past few years, it has been spreading like a wildfire among smokers trying to quit. It is simple, 2 part metal tube that looks like a real cigarette and gives you a measured dose of nicotine with each drag. The internal heating element vaporizes a small amount of the liquid nicotine into simulated smoke that gives you the sensation of inhaling. However, since nothing is burned, there are none of the toxic chemicals and smoke found in real tobacco cigarettes. Imagine that, the sensation of smoking without the toxins and second hand smoke.

I have been told by friends that you can actually use the e cigarette anywhere.

Even in restaurants and other public places where smoking has been banned. This remains to be tested by me and i am looking forward to people’s reactions when i use my smokeless e cigarette in public. I will report back to you on the results. I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the package containing my e cigarette and a 3 month supply of replacement nicotine cartridges. When they arrive, i will be giving away any remaining tobacco cigarettes and switching over to my smokeless cigarette exclusively.

My plan is simple and very straight forward. I will use the e cigarette at the same rate as when i was smoking tobacco cigarettes. Since one cartridge is equivalent to one pack of tobacco cigarettes, i will try to approximate my previous pack a day tobacco cigarette habit. To enable smokers to quit completely, the nicotine cartridges come in different strengths. I ordered a month’s supply of the strongest cartridges and several other strengths in varying amounts. This will allow me to taper off my nicotine dose over 3 months until i am totally weaned off of nicotine. After three months, if i am still craving nicotine, i can always go to the local mall and get a few more weeks worth of low strength cartridges.

Well, thats about it for now. As i said, im chomping at the bit to get started with my e cigarette.

I can’t wait until the package arrives and i can put my plan to the test. I hope this is the time i actually succeed in quitting smoking tobacco cigarettes. Only time will tell if my plan is sucessfull and those of you reading this will be the first to know my results. I just can’t wait to light up my e cigarette in some posh restaurant and see the looks on people’s faces. The comments they make should be priceless. Hopefully, no one will assault me or throw a glass of water on me. We all know how dangereous mitant, non-smokers can be when roused.

Stay tuned for part 2 on how the e cigarette is helping me stop smoking.

Quit Smoking Using An Electronic Cigarette

Give up smoking with the electronic cigarette

The electronic cigarette will give you the same sensations

Unlike nicotine gum or patches, the device provides the user with nicotine in a manner of seconds and not minutes. Therefore, the satisfaction that smokers get from smoking a real cigarette can be simulated perfectly. In addition, an LED lighting unit found just at the tip of the device simulates the orange glow coming from actual tobacco during each inhalation.

Like actual tobacco, the nicotine cartridges are designed to provide a range of strengths, i.e. from minimal to full strength. The real purpose of the electronic cigarette is to help the smoker quit the habit safely. Since the device simulates a real smoking experience, the user can get used to it and eventually move from full strength to minimal strength over a period of time until he decides to quit. While nicotine gum and patches work only for a minimal number of people, this device is more promising since it copies many aspects of the real smoking experience. Although the cost of purchasing a kit may overwhelm the user at first, it gets a lot cheaper during the next set of cartridges since the charger and batteries are already present.

No Fear: Smoke As Much As You Want With The Electronic Cigarette

Smokeless Smoking With The Electronic Cigarette

Have you been trying to quit smoking?  You have tried therapy, group support, the nicotine patch, gum and lozenges but nothing seems to work.  Why?  Is it because you miss putting the cigarette between your lips and lighting it?  There is also the heat of the smoke combined with the nicotine and menthol taste as it passes from your lips, into your mouth, down your throat and into your lungs.  It warms you for a while before you take the cigarette out from your lips and slowly blow out the smoke.  Do you miss all that?  You do not have too.  You can enjoy all of this and the satisfaction it gives with the aid of the electronic cigarette.

The electric cigarette looks very much like an ordinary cigarette.  It comes in different sizes from a standard slim length to an extended length.  Its coloring is also similar to the real cigarette.  In fact, many have mistaken this e cigarette as the real one.  The “e” stands for “electric” and at the same time can stand for “eco-friendly”, because you do not release any harmful elements into the air when you use this smokeless cigarette.  What comes out is not smoke but harmless water vapor.

The secret of this electronic cigarette is revealed by learning of its parts.

The cartridge replaces the filter of the real cigarette.  The top portion contains liquid nicotine dissolved in propylene glycol.  Next to that is the heater that is used to vaporize the liquid.  This makes the user appear to be smoking when what comes out is just a very thin mist of water.  This is 100% safe for the environment and in fact even helps to humidify dry air.  To prevent overheating and ensure the safety of the user, a microprocessor that controls the heater and light is located at the joining of the cartridge and the supposed tobacco part of the cigarette.  The sensor, battery and the led light have replaced the tobacco part.  The sensor detects when the user takes a puff and will cause the led light to shine.  The stronger the puff, the brighter the light will glow.  This makes the electric cigarette look real.

With the e cigarette you will not be burning through your money since you will only be replacing the cartridge and the batteries are rechargeable.  If you do the math, using the electric cigarette instead of other cigarettes will wind up saving you money.  Aside from this advantage is that this smokeless cigarette will not turn your teeth yellow.  There is no smoke odor that will cause you to have bad breath or will cling to your clothes making you smell bad.  Your appearance and hygiene will not be affected with the use of this electronic cigarette, unlike with the real cigarette.

Truly, the benefits of using the electronic cigarette are great.  So, why deprive yourself of the feeling and satisfaction of the act of smoking when you can still do so using this electric cigarette.  You have nothing now to fear- quitting smoking can be easy.

How to Stop Smoking

How to Stop Smoking Part 2: Stop Smoking Tools to Help you Succeed!

Author: Michael Westbrook Stop Smoking

You can stop smoking! Welcome back to your detailed quit smoking plan, and congratulations on your decision to stop smoking. If you are seeing the second part of this series without having seen the first, you may want to find it.

Full Day 1

Since you were able to excrete most of the nicotine in your body already, your physical craving is significantly less severe than it would have been if you had smoked right before having gone to bed. Your actual ‘habit’ of smoking in the morning, though, is another story. You may find yourself reaching for cigarettes automatically only to remember that this is the first day of the rest of your life not smoking!

If it’s a weekend and you have no prior commitments: Lethargy is a common symptom when you first quit smoking. Feel free to stay in bed! If you really have nothing to do, you’re just begging for self destructive idle time, anyway. You have the right to baby yourself when you’re sick, and to stop smoking is to deal with a life threatening illness from which you owe it to yourself to claim your freedom! If it’s within your power in the first 24-48 hours, take time to recover!

If you have to go to work: In your process of telling your co-workers of your plans to quit smoking you will have been able to identify the non-smokers who are encouraging you to stop smoking for good. Find them at breaks and lunch, and adopt their non-smoking habits. When break time comes, keep your affirmations strong by changing – yet still acknowledging – the proclamation your desire to have a cigarette. Say out loud, “I am having a temporary craving that will pass;” or something along those lines…Never, “I want a cigarette,” or “I need to smoke,” or any other self defeating affirmation.

Your stress level (obviously) is likely to be high on your first day after you stop smoking, so try to be extra mindful of the way you interact with those around you.

Around the hour you quit on the previous day, you can expect the corresponding time frame to deliver you a serious rush of anxiety and tension. This could only last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, but the most likely scenario is that it may continue for a couple days. It will pass! You do not have to smoke. Taking measures with a natural stop smoking treatment,  or another smoking cessation aid will help make these symptoms much less severe.

Beware: If you smoke at this critical juncture, you could lose all willingness to even try to quit smoking for weeks, months, or even years! The disease of nicotine is cunning, baffling, and powerful; and it will go to great lengths to prevent you from giving up tobacco. If you’ve made it this far, hold on; because it WILL get easier.

During your normal every day actions during which you used to smoke like drinking, talking on the telephone, or flipping through channels with the remote; start using your ex-smoking hand for these activities so it’s not sitting there doing nothing while your other hand is completing all the work. This may sound insignificant, but it’s actually a quite effective tool in the battle against smoking addiction.

Day 2

Argh! (No, seriously) You are all but guaranteed to be going crazy with fiend for a cigarette. While the actual cravings don’t last long, your nerves are going through a restoration process that is a natural part of nicotine withdrawals; which means that – even when you’re not wanting to smoke necessarily – you are just in a state of discontentment and aggravation because of the discomfort and shortness of temper caused by the depletion of dopamine, endorphins and other naturally produced chemicals that smoking took over for your body.

Your brain, nerves, lungs, and every other organ in your body that was affected by smoking (there are many) are all learning – just as you are – to adjust to life without cigarettes. They will heal, but the process is not comfortable. Do not let it be your reason to give in. You can stop smoking!

Day 3

Generally, the feelings of anxiety are still somewhat strong, and they may or may not be starting to disappear. Hopefully, you are still carrying around your list of your reasons not to smoke to which you need to refer every time you are thinking about lending the power back to your nicotine addiction. You are at the most stressful part of your journey, and everything will start to get easier from here, so stay strong and don’t give up!

Day 4

Finally, things are starting to return to normal. Your body will begin to regulate its production of vital mood stabilizing chemicals that it once produced all on its own before nicotine interrupted the process, and your coping abilities should be starting to bear a more civilized nature. Your appetite will be out of control. Allow yourself to indulge, but don’t go overboard and remember about the healthful snacking!

Day 5

Personally, this day for me has historically been rough. It’s a type of comfort zone in which you are in grave danger of relapse. Do not mosey on over to a smoking co-worker or make a sly plan in the morning to meet up with a friend who smokes for lunch or another affair, either! Again…Cunning, baffling, and powerful! Don’t let your disease fool you!

Day 6

Hopefully, at this point of the game you are adjusting nicely to life without cigarettes. Your senses have possibly returned to a degree you hadn’t even realized was possible; and your lungs are definitely feeling better. Your cough, however, may have been getting increasingly worse at this point. That’s normal, and it could last for the next few weeks. You may be able to minimize the side effects with a homeopathic stop smoking treatment.

Day 7

Congratulations! This is a huge milestone in your journey! Today is the day that your brain finishes the process of creating new habits! Everything you do will get easier and easier from here on out! You’re not out of the woods, yet, though, because your disease is still at work trying to convince you to start smoking again. Be aware of its attempts throughout the day to convince you that you can have just one cigarette or even one drag…You can’t!

Even if you are able to stop with one drag or one smoke the first time, that will give you permission for the next time; then that will give you permission to smoke again until you’ve increased your level of smoking to that which is just a bit more cigarettes in a day than you were smoking before you quit. Some of the tricks your smoking addiction will try to play on you include:

  • Going to the smoking section at work
  • Making plans with a friend or family member who smokes
  • Engaging in behaviors that are conducive to smoking (going to bars, drinking excessively, etc.)
  • Encouraging you to stop a complete stranger you see smoking outside as you’re leaving the supermarket or eating establishment to ask for a cigarette.

2nd Week

Stay vigilant in your guard against your disease, and start enjoying life without smoking. You will quickly realize how much money you’re saving. Many smokers like to reward themselves with a teeth whitening kit or a special shopping spree with the money they are no longer spending on cigarettes. You deserve it! You’ve accomplished something very difficult that will undoubtedly add years onto your life.

Remember that your nicotine addiction is a powerful disease that is always at work. It is in the back of your mind strength training and getting stronger behind your back. Stay aware of the dangers that await you around every corner. You are only one drag away from a relapse that could claim your life. You CAN quit smoking! Make the decision to stop smoking today!

Electronic Cigarette – The Next Quit Smoking Device

Electronic Cigarette – The Next Quit Smoking Device
By David P Benson

Ever since the public became aware about the dangers of smoking a few decades ago, many people have found quitting the tobacco habit hard. Companies have been innovating and manufacturing smoking cessation products for many years now. From nicotine patches to gum, nicotine addicts have been using them to quit their habit.

Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes and electric cigarettes)are the newest product on the market. They are designed to look and feel like real cigarettes, even down to emitting artificial smoke however they do not actually contain any tobacco. Users inhale nicotine vapour which looks like smoke without any of the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke which are harmful to the smoker and others around him.

The Electronic cigarette consists of a nicotine cartridge containing liquid nicotine. When a user inhales, a tiny battery powered atomizer turns a small amount of liquid nicotine into vapour. Inhaling nicotine vapour gives the user a nicotine hit in seconds rather than minutes with patches or gum. When the user inhales, a small LED light at the tip of the electronic cigarette glows orange to simulate a real cigarette.

The nicotine cartridges themselves come in various strengths. Most of the major brands, such as the Gamucci electronic cigarette have full strength, half strength and minimal strength. This is designed for people who want to quit smoking. As they get used to using the electronic cigarette, they can gradually reduce the strength they use until they quit.

The main advantages electronic cigarettes have over nicotine patches or gum is firstly, users have the nicotine hit much quicker and secondly, because a big reason why smokers fail to quit suing patches and gum is because they still miss the act of inhaling smoke from a cylindrical object. The electronic cigarette emulates that even down to the smoke.

The electronic cigarette is also beneficial from a financial perspective. A set of five nicotine cartridges costs around £8 and is equivalent to 500 cigarettes. Although the initial investment of an electronic cigarette kit of £50 may seem steep at first, users save money in the long run.

As with many popular products, there have been a great number of cheap Chinese imitations flooding the market. They are usually half the price of a branded electronic cigarette and look like the real thing as well. It is inadvisable to use these because they have not been subject to the same rigorous testing the official electronic cigarettes have and can potentially be highly damaging to the user’s health.

As electronic cigarettes become more and more popular, they are increasingly used to smoke in pubs and clubs with a smoking ban. Electronic cigarettes seem to be the next thing and may soon replace real cigarettes in clubs.

Electronic Cigarette Tips For Electronic Smokers, Get Most From Smokeless CIgarettes

www.totallywickedstuff.com Use Totally Wicked Coupon DS9A5 save 7.5 percent Your new electronic cigarette is not a complicated device but with anything new there is always going to be a bit of a learning curve. Here are some tips on the best way to maximize your electronic smoking experience so you can save both time and money. Tips for new electronic smokers 1. Get extra batteries and atomizers. These are the two things that are most likely to need replacing. A quick word of caution It’s a good idea to make sure you like your particular electronic cigarette model first before buying all the extras. Once you know for sure you’re satisfied with it, get the extra hardware… you’ll definitely get good use out of them 2. Get a car charger and a USB passthrough. These will allow you to “vape” while driving or at your computer without the need to drain your batteries. Again, make sure you’re satisfied with your model before buying the extras. 3. Start off with a lower nicotine dose. Electronic cigarette cartridges typically come in several different doses: High, medium, low and none. When you first get your e-cigarette you’re going to want to be experimenting with it a lot, trying new flavors, etc. If you’re not careful you’ll end up absorbing more nicotine than you’re used to… and possibly increasing your addiction to it. Start off low and increase your dose after the novelty wears off if you feel like it. 4. Take long, slow puffs. A long, slow, steady puff will give you

Are all electric cigarettes the same?

There is a bunch of information about electric cigarettes and for the most part, they all have the same components = cartridge, battery, atomizer and they all do the same thing so why the disparity in price? I have seen one version for less than for a starter kit!???
