Why Electronic Cigarettes?

Author : Tricia Jones

I've tried to stop smoking many times over the years and failed dismally. Thing is I enjoy smoking even though I know that it's bad for my health. I don't like smelling like an ashtray or having a smokers cough. Nor do I like feeling like a leper in todays society just because I smoke.

So I had to admit to myself that it was time for me to sort myself out and do something about stopping. Having so many failed attempts behind me I knew that it was time to try something different - if you are thinking 'willpower' forget it. I haven't got enough of that and why should I put myself and those around me through the torture of withdrawel symptoms when you don't need to.

I've read a few articles over recent months about electronic cigarettes and became interested enough to search out genuine reviews and comments on forums. You will find a lot of false reviews on the internet from people selling a product, you can usually tell that they have probably never seen the product never mind tried it. Forums are good to get genuine feedback and opinions so that's where I always look.

The feedback about electronic cigarettes is pretty good out there, though there do seem to be some issues from anti smoking groups. They reckon that e cigs are just as addictive as tobacco products and maybe they are, but they are still healthier.

With e cigarettes you get nicotine cartridges without the tar and harmful chemicals that you get in normal cigarettes. An atomiser and a battery. Put them all together and you get a cigarette like those in the picture above.

I'm pretty pleased with them so far. I have stopped smoking tobacco and I don't have the withdrawel symptoms that I've had with previous stop smoking attempts. My aim is to wean myself off the addiction by gradually lowering the strength of the cartridges at a comfortable pace.

It's the same principal as nicotine patches but I control how often I introduce the nicotine to my body and how much. With patches you are introducing nicotine all of the time. Some brands tell you to leave them on for 24 hours. I just wouldn't do that, I don't smoke 24/7. I once forgot to take a patch off when I went to bed and I felt lousy the next morning, my mouth was very dry and I was coughing a lot.

I wrote that 18 months ago and yes I did stop with the help of electronic cigarettes and blogging about it.
