“Safe doesn’t exist. But electronic cigarettes are low risk compared to regular cigarettes. It’s the equivalent of having a four-wheel-drive Volvo compared to a high-powered motorcycle with bald tires in an ice storm.”
What is e- cigarette ?
Electronic cigarettes contains nicotine and/or other chemicals delivering system to the user via an aerosol vapour. The devices are designed to simulate the act of smoking tobacco cigarettes but do not involve the burning of tobacco. E-cigarettes are officially known as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). They are more commonly called e-cigarettes, e-cigs, e-hookah, or vapes.
Which is better regular or e- cigarette?
A normal question which comes in mind, Regular and e-cigarette both are harmful and containing carcinogen but recent research says e-cigarette is better than regular. We couldn’t understand the theory behind this without reading the mechanism of vaping and smoking.
Some Fact about e-cigarette:-
- Cigarettes contain anywhere from 8 mg of nicotine up to 20 mg of nicotine. Most cigarettes are at the lower end of the spectrum, which puts the average amount on nicotine in one cigarette at 12 mg. You absorb less than 1 mg of that nicotine when you smoke a cigarette. Whereas in e-cig ,12 mg of nicotine contains in one ml tank and only 50% inhaled. so very less quantity is ingested by consumer. If you are a pack per day smokers who has tried 12 mg of nicotine but find yourself going back to cigarettes, then a higher nicotine level is probably in order. Perhaps then you should try the recommended 16 mg or 18 mg nicotine level.
- So if you are vaping an 18 mg e liquid from a 1 ml tank or cartridge each day and 50% of the nicotine is present in the vapor that would mean that you are ingesting about 9 mg of nicotine per day.This is less that a pack of tobacco cigarettes. Though it is less nicotine overall, many pack per day smokers have had success with the 18 mg level.
- In smoking, the particle size of nicotine is around micron which easily penetrate in bronchioles and causing problem of cough to lung cancer. On the hand in e-cig size of nicotine is larger then its not easily penetrate.
- E liquid vaporisation can vary greatly in terms of temperature and heating elements. The variance in ecig product quality probably has a major influence on how much nicotine you are ingesting. The better quality ecig products provide more stable and cleaner nicotine delivery.
- Most high-quality vaping starter kits are in the $40 to $80 range. After purchasing your equipment, you’ll want to buy a few bottles of e-liquid (or juice, as we call it). A 15mL bottle of juice, the equivalent of a carton of cigarettes, costs $10 – $15.
Quit smoking with E- Cigarettes
The study found that people who wanted to quit smoking needed strong will power is the key factor.There are so many ways to get rid of smoking habit like an anti-smoking nicotine patch or gum.
But along these method user become restless because they are totally leaving habit but body demands. So after trying some these gum or tablet user easily switch back. In that situation E-Cigarettes are the best option.
Smoker usually take so many packs per day and approx quantity of 18 mg nicotine ingested whereas with e-cig only take 9 mg/day. Then E-cig will reduce the ingestion quantity of smoke.
Vapour is less harmful in compare to smoke because smoke is made by direct burning of tobacco. Nicotine in high temperature converts in carcinogenic substance. On the other hand e-cig reduces the risk.
Researchers found that e-cigarettes helped user with strong will power. Smoking is a no doubt tough habit to beat, so quit rates were still low, Only one-fifth of people who tried e-cigarettes as a stop-smoking aid succeeded in quitting long-term.
