Smoking, to say the least, is a big menace. Studies across the world compare addiction to cigarettes as nothing less than addiction to Heroine or any such illicit drug. But unlike addiction to illicit drugs, smoking addiction is often not considered to be very serious. Smoking is a very common addiction in the world. But the major problem here is not the addiction but the attitude of the smokers towards their addiction. Most smokers are often under a 'denial' mode when it comes to accepting the harmful effects smoking can have on their health. They feel that smoking won't be as dangerous as it is projected to be. But that is not true. SMOKING CAN BE FATAL!
Smoking can have adverse health effects for the smoker. While there are many smokers who want to quit their addiction, they almost always give up on the idea as smoking is very addictive. Many people give several attempts to quit smoking but end up going back to their habit.

Holding a sleek cigarette and taking puffs gives them a high. For such people, quitting smoking is even more difficult. Quit smoking aids like patches and nicotine-gums don’t usually work for them. In this regard, an alternative smoking device can be an ideal option. And, that alternative smoking device is the electronic cigarette.

But the similarity ends here. These electronic smoking devices do not contain any tobacco that is the most important component of the traditional cigarettes. Tobacco is the main culprit that is responsible for adverse health impact on the smoker. Tobacco gets accumulated in the form of tar in the lungs and can cause serious ailments including various forms of cancers. As the e-cigs do not contain any tobacco, a lot of health related risks are eliminated. Read More...
