I know I am not the only smoker at KH so I am posting this for those who smoke.
With my mother being taken by lung cancer recently and myself being a fairly heavy smoker I got to thinking hard about the whole smoking thing.
I’ve tried and failed to quit in the past and was prepared to try again when I discovered e-cigarettes. They are an amazing piece of technology.
Obviously, quitting is the best option but these things are a great alternative to smoking cigarettes. With normal “analog” cigarettes one gets the nicotine you’re after but also a lot of tar and other chemicals you don’t want. Even the lightest cigarettes still contains hundreds of harmful chemicals.
These e-cigs provide the nicotine the smoker wants but none of the other crud in cigarette smoke. As a matter of fact they produce no smoke at all. They produce a vapor that contains some nicotine, flavoring, and that’s it. The vapor evaporates away almost immediately.
They’re legal to use anywhere as they produce no first or second hand smoke or residual odor and have no tobacco or combustion at all, and smoking bans do not apply to them.
I’ve made the switch to them and can say that they do satisfy both the nicotine craving as well as the “habit” of smoking. They draw and feel just like smoking a ciggy, the taste is very similar to that of a cigarette (unless you go with one of several other flavors like strawberry or vanilla), but are much better for you than tobacco as there are no carcinogens in the vapor at all.
Is is a tad pricey to get started with them, but in the long run using them is much cheaper than buying cigarettes. One can even buy the liquid to refill the cartridges instead of buying more of them and save even more money.
I would urge any who smoke to at least consider this option (no I don’t sell them or work for someone who does LOL) as a healthier alternative to cigarettes.
There’s a website for a dealer who has a good reputation among those on the e-cigs forums. http://www.puresmoker.com/
