Electric Cigarette: Will It Help You Quit Smoking?
Recently we had a little debate about E-Cigarettes (which stands for “Electronic Cigarettes” or “Electric Cigarettes” depending on whom you ask). Shall we endorse e-cigarettes as a stop smoking aid? Does it really help to reduce nicotine addiction? Can it assist in quitting smoking if you are using other stop smoking methods and using electric cigarette to slowly reduce your dependency on nicotine?
Two Perspectives on E-Cigarettes.
When Cynthia and Josh wrote two electronic cigarette reviews, they offered slightly different perspectives on the subject. You can read their opinions about these smokeless cigarettes by clicking on the articles below, so I don’t want to repeat the points that they are making.
But I would like to highlight the common conclusions that we all have agreed upon:
- Electric cigarette is definitely a lesser evil than regular cigarettes;
- E-Cigarette could be 80% cheaper than regular tobacco cigarettes.

- Psychologically speaking, e-cigarette could be a better alternative to other nicotine stop smoking products.

In case you haven’t heard of e-cigarettes, they’re these ingenious little battery-operated devices that allow you to “smoke” without actually smoking. In place of traditional tobacco, e-cigarettes use a nicotine solution made of propylene glycol or glycerin, both perfectly harmless substances that happen to contain nicotine.
Without fire or smoke, the substance is vaporized and drawn into your lungs, giving a sensation that is very similar to that of actually smoking. There’s no tar, no yellow teeth, no bad breath, no bad smell, and there are far fewer harmful chemicals and toxins.
Advantages of E-Cigarettes
Here are some of the reasons to try e-cigarettes…
For as long as we’ve known about the harmful effects of cigarettes, smokers have dreamed of the possibility of a safe and clean type of cigarette without the carcinogenic effects, the noxious smoke, or the lingering odor. But we knew that this was just an unrealistic fantasy. After all, without these negative things, smoking wouldn’t be smoking.
But what if the best way to quit smoking were to keep using cigarettes, but without the smoke? Is this possible, or just a fairy tale?
Thanks to the magic fairy dust of technology, we now have e-cigarettes. In case you’re not familiar with them, e-cigarettes…
