E-cigarettes or electronic cigarettes are a new kind of tobacco free way to get nicotine into your system without eliminating dangerous smoke into the atmosphere. They claim to be non-hazardous for the people who are in the room you are using it in. The person using it still gets a nicotine buzz if they want to without smoking a cigarette.
This device is battery operated and the user inhales steam instead of smoke. The steam simulates smoke and provides a look and feel of an actual cigarette.
There are already several types of e-cigarettes on the market today. There are automatic ones that activate the heating element when someone inhales on it. The mouthpiece has a liquid in it that is flavored like a regular cigarette.
A manual model of the e-cigarette is also available. The manual model has a button that needs to be pressed before the cigarette is activated to release the flavored steam.
A light on the end of the electronic cigarette looks like the lighted end of the tobacco one. This light lights up when it is inhaled on the end with the mouthpiece.
You can purchase solutions to go into the mouthpiece of the e-cigarette. The mouthpiece is disposable and it fits on the end of a tube. You can get flavored solutions to fit in the mouthpiece like tobacco with or without nicotine in it. It is called the e-liquid or e-juice and they come in a variety of flavors.
As of this date it is unsure of the health effects of using e-cigarettes. They should be better for your health then smoking a tobacco cigarette but it is still better not to get addicted to them. It is a drug and anytime you put a drug into your body it is not good for you. They may help smokers to be more comfortable when they are in a place where they can not smoke.
Like your cell phone an e-cigarette can be charged with a charger much like the one you use to charge your cell phone.
Will people start to get addicted to them? This is a question that only time will tell. They may be a good solution to people who smoke heavily and need something to help them
when they are in places where they can’t smoke.
