The world of smoking was changed forever with the introduction of the E Cigarette. It has been called nice things like “the next generation of smoking”. Manufacturers also claim it can help a person quit smoking, and still smoke.

The E Cigarette uses liquid nicotine cartridges and an electric vaporizer. A small battery inside the body of the E Cigarette heats a coil inside of it that turns the liquid nicotine into nicotine vapor. So smokers get the nicotine they crave, without all the harmful additions that came with smoking tobacco.

There are many obvious advantages to the E Cigarette.



Smoking tobacco can seriously damage the lungs and cause many other major health complications. The E Cigarette has no tobacco in it at all, so it doesn't contain the ingredients found in a traditional smoke that might harm or damage the lungs.


All that comes out of the E Cigarette is vapor that quickly disappears.


Many smokers find that smoking has become so habitual that they cannot function without a cigarette nearby. The E Cigarette can provide these people with a safer alternative than the pack a day habit that many smokers admit to.


As a smoking cessation device, the E Cigarette has many promising possibilities, as long as the person wants to quit, and can get the help they need.

    Well, it’s important to understand a couple things.

    1. No one has a full understanding of the long-term health effects of nicotine itself being delivered in a vapor.
    2. The FDA conducted at least one study back in 2009. The results of that study were that e-cigarettes contain certain tobacco-specific chemicals that can cause cancer (but only in trace amounts comparable to what you’d find in other tobacco cessation products such as nicotine gums or inhalers) AND that one brand specifically had a dangerous chemical in the cartridge (but this was literally only discovered one time, and it’s considered to have been a flaw in the production of that one brand’s production, meaning it wouldn’t be an issue now).
    3. Researchers independent of the FDA suggest that e-cigarettes are less dangerous than traditional cigarettes, and are probably just as safe as other tobacco cessation products.

    Long story short: They don’t pose much of a health risk, especially compared to the alternative of smoking tobacco cigarettes.

    It IS possible to buy cartridges or juice bottles without nicotine in them. Almost every major e-cig company out there makes different strengths for their juice, so when you’re shopping around you should be able to see low/medium/strong and then nicotine-free.
