Using an E Cigarette

Posted by: Kayes on: 19 Apr, 2011

There are many different reasons why people choose to purchase an e cigarette, or electronic cigarette. Most people that buy them are trying to stop smoking the real cigarettes and need a little something to help them accomplish their goal.

Smokers are addicted to the nicotine that is contained in cigarettes. They smoke to relieve their body’s cravings for the nicotine. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, it is said to be even more addictive that cocaine. People that smoke cigarettes also get accustomed to having the cigarette in their hand. It becomes a physical habit. When a person who smokes sees another person smoke they reach for a cigarette as well without consciously thinking about what they are doing. It is a reflex to light one up when they see someone else smoking. This reflex habit can be harder to break than the nicotine habit is. You eventually wean your body off nicotine but you will instinctively still reach for the physical crutch of a cigarette.

Electronic cigarettes provide the physical crutch people need to help them abstain from lighting a real cigarette. They are battery operated and contain cartridges of flavored liquid that makes a smoke when the person draws in on the electronic cigarette. The end even glows orange. This is not necessary but it makes it seem more real to the user.

If you decide you want to try one of these out you will need to compare e-cig cartridges to find the right flavor for you. Each individual has their own tastes and when you find the right one you will stand a better chance of quitting the real thing. Do not give up if you do not succeed at first just keep trying until you do succeed.
