Study: Electronic Cigarettes NOT Linked To Heart Damage

According to the latest report from Onassis Cardiac Surgery Centre in Athens, using e cigarettes is NOT linked with any adverse side effects on cardiac function – unlike traditional cigarette smoking.

In fact, the research conducted showed that e cigarettes are considerably less harmful than normal smoking (cigarettes that contain tobacco) and therefore moving from traditional smoking to e cigarette smoking is likely to be a good move in terms of a smoker’s health.

Smoking with traditional cigarettes has many health implications – one major one being heart disease. The World Health Organization (WHO), have commented that smoking will have caused 1 billion deaths by the end of this century.

Manufacturers of e cigarettes have been saying for some time that switching to the e cig is a “healthier alternative” and this research implies that this statement is probably true. Switching to e cigs not only cuts down your tobacco intake (in fact, e cigs contain zero tobacco) but many use the e cigarette as an aide for quitting smoking completely.

What is unique about the e cigarette is that it mimics the sensations of tobacco smoking, but unlike tobacco smoking you do not breathe in smoke. The e liquid inside the e cigarette can be purchased in different flavours, too, giving the e cig user a variety of choices for their e cig.

The study which was based on 42 young volunteers who were daily smokers found that while smokers who used the electronic cigarette got the same experience as smoking a real cigarette, their cravings for tobacco gradually declined without them actually realising it. In addition many of the heart problems that are commonly associated with smoking do not occur with electronic equivalent of real cigarettes.

The cardiac functions of volunteers that smoke one cigarette on a daily basis were then compared to the other set of volunteers using e cigs for a length of 7 minutes over two weeks. The results concluded that the people using the electronic cigarettes was least affected, showing only very slight increase in their blood pressure and heartbeat, and negligible cardiac function disruptions

This is not the only study showing how e cigs are healthier than normal cigarettes. Previous studies have indicated that e cigarettes contain “fewer toxins” than tobacco cigarettes, including nitrosamines which form part of a group of carcinogens in tobacco containing products.

To put things into perspective, in order for a smoker to breathe in the nitrosamines contained in one normal cigarette, you would need to use your e cigarette device every day for 12 months.

Dr Farsalinos, who headed the study, said: “It is too early to say whether the electronic cigarette is a revolution in tobacco harm reduction but the potential is there. It is the only available product that deals with both the chemical (nicotine delivery) and psychological (inhaling and exhaling ‘smoke’, holding it, etc) addiction to smoking, laboratory analyses indicate that it is significantly less toxic and our study has shown no significant defects in cardiac function after acute use.”

Around 100,000 people die in the UK alone each year due to smoking. This is an incredible fact when you juxtapose this number with the total number of deaths caused by cancer each year which totals to around 157,000.

There are a number of ways a smoker can meet their untimely death however 5 of the most common reasons are caused by the following:

  1. Lung Cancer – Lung cancer single handily claims the lives of 30,000 people in the UK, with 8 out of 10 of these being directly linked to smoking. Taking into consideration the total of people that die in the UK due to smoking, lung cancer is responsible for nearly a third of all fatalities.
  2. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – COPD is a serious lung disease that kills around 25,000 people a year in the UK. Out of the 25,000, 8 out of 10 are smoking related meaning around 20,000 people die from smoking alone.
  3. Heart Disease – Heart Disease is the biggest killer illness in the UK claiming a colossal 120,000 people in the UK. Around 1 in 6 of these deaths is due to smoking meaning 20,000 people die from Heart disease due to their smoking habit.
  4. Rheumatoid Arthritis – Research has shown smoking is known to be a risk factor for developing rheumatoid arthritis. Of this research one study estimated that about 1 in 5 cases of rheumatoid arthritis is caused due to smoking.
  5. Other Cancers – Although lung cancer is the most common type of cancer caused by smoking, it can also be responsible for mouth, nose, throat, larynx, gullet (oesophagus), pancreas, bladder, cervix, blood (leukaemia) and kidney cancer too.

Looking above it is incredible that anyone who has been educated on the effects that smoking has, and the diseases and illnesses it can cause, continues or starts to smoke. But why does smoking have such a detrimental and destructive effect on the human body?  Having a look at the top 5 harmful chemicals found in cigarettes its clear to see why:

  • Cyanide – Just seeing this word alone should start ringing alarm bells. Cyanide was used by the Nazi’s in the Holocaust during World War 2 (in the form of hydrogen cyanide). It is one of the most deadliest poisons known to man.
  • Arsenic – Arsenic is commonly used in traps to kill rodents by dehydration. It is highly poisonous to humans with common symptoms including diarrhea, vomiting, blood in urine, hair loss and convulsions.
  •  DDT – DDT is a well known synthetic pesticide. Although the NTP (United States National Toxicology Program) has labelled the chemical “moderately toxic” and the WHO (World Health Organisation) “moderately hazardous” a number of varying studies have linked DDT to diabetes. Also it seems the chemical, if exposed to a pregnant woman, can lead to the child having development problems and decreased cognitive skills.
  • Carbon Monoxide – Killing by asphyxiation, carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in the blood stream with CO molecules. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause headaches and confusion. More severe cases can lead to toxicity of the central nervous system and the heart.
  • Formaldehyde – Ironically formaldehyde is commonly used to preserve dead tissue. Formaldehyde poisoning can lead to hypotension, arrhythmia, breathing and respiratory complications and can even leave you in a coma in the most severe cases.

However it’s not all bad news, if you are a smoker who wishes to quit you can still regain your health. The following timeline shows the health benefits of quitting:

  • After 72 hours breathing becomes easier. Bronchial tubes begin to relax and energy levels increase.
  • After 1 month the skin appearance improves, owing to improved skin perfusion.
  • After 3-9 months coughing, wheezing and general breathing problems improve and lung function increases by up to 10%.
  • After 1 year the risk of heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.
  • After 10 years the chance of getting lung cancer falls to around half of that of a smoker.
  • After 15 years the risk of having a heart attack falls to the same level as for someone who has never smoked in their life.

Other none health benefits of quitting smoking include improved finances, improved sense of taste and smell and the smell of tobacco goes from your clothes breath face and hair.

Why Vaping E Liquid Isn’t As Bad For Your Health

You may have heard of electronic cigarette smoking before, but are not sure exactly how it works. An electronic cigarette looks the same as normal cigarette. It is a small tube like inhaler, which you can “take a drag” from much in the same way as you can with a normal cigarette.

However, electronic cigarette smoking isn’t as bad for your health. This is because it does not contain any tar, and no combustion takes place when it is in use. The smoke that is released is not even a smoke, it is a water vapour. This means that it is much safer to use around other people with no threat of second-hand smoke.

The great thing about the electronic cigarette is that you can adapt it around your smoking needs and tastes. You can choose the E liquid that suits you best. E liquid is a substance that makes the electronic cigarette function. You can choose the nicotine strength that you would like, for example, a lighter smoker might only want a small dose of nicotine in their E liquid. You can also choose the E Liquid flavour. This could be anything from a traditional cigarette taste, to coffee, chocolate and even fruit flavours. This means that many electronic cigarette smokers can be creative with their alternative smoking style.

The electronic cigarettes can be used as a permanent alternative to smoking, but some people use it as a quit smoking device. This is because of the method of nicotine replacement which the electronic cigarette can deliver.

Because the electronic cigarette still contains nicotine, which is the addictive chemical in a normal cigarette, a smoker can gradually wean their body off the nicotine substance by using the electronic cigarette. As the dose of E liquid can be reduced over time, in terms of nicotine content, it becomes easier for the body to survive without nicotine and it will no longer crave cigarettes in the same way as it has done in the past.

One user of the electronic cigarette commented on its effectiveness in their lifestyle, “What I found difficult about smoking was that it meant that I always secluded myself from the rest of the group. Whenever we were out at a restaurant, I would need to go outside and stand in the cold to have my cigarette. Now, with the electronic cigarette, I can smoke it wherever I want to, because I know it is not harmful to anybody around me. What’s more, I have been able to gradually wean my addiction to nicotine so now my nicotine levels are much lower than they were a year ago. With a little patience and belief in the electronic cigarette, it really can take your long way.”

Quitting Smoking The Easier Way With E Liquid

Quitting smoking is very tough, and if you have been a smoker in the past, you will know how difficult it is. This is due to the chemical inside the cigarette called nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive and attacks the brain’s cells. This means that your body feels like it needs another hit of nicotine every so often. The heavier the smoker you are, the more your body feels like it needs nicotine. Some smokers believe that they cannot go a couple of hours without a cigarette.

Firstly, smoking is bad for your health. The more you smoke, the more you are exposing yourself to thousands of toxins and chemicals. The more you smoke, the more you are feeling you need to smoke. This is very bad for your health and is highlighted by the fact that smoking related illnesses is still the U.K.’s number one killer.

Not only this, but smoking is bad for your lifestyle in general. If you work in an office or other environment, going for a cigarette break every hour can be detrimental to your productivity and can be a hindrance on your work life. It can also affect your social life, as well as your family because you cannot smoke around other people.

For the many reasons above, many people decide to quit smoking. This can be difficult because of the challenging withdrawal symptoms which every smoker experiences. This is because the body is withdrawing from the nicotine substance which can be a frustrating and long drawn out process.

Many people try to quit smoking using nicotine replacement therapies. Nicotine replacement therapies allow you to gradually replace the nicotine in your system, such as with a nicotine gum or nicotine patch, which means that your body thinks that it has had a bit of nicotine even though it hasn’t smoked.

One revolutionary new product which really showcases this method is the electronic cigarette. The e cig contains a substance called E liquid. E liquid contains nicotine and you can choose the nicotine strength that you would like. For the heavy smoker, they might decide to have a strong dose of nicotine in their E liquid. You can also choose the flavour of the electronic cigarette.

Many Hollywood stars have been seen with the electronic cigarette, including Johnny Depp. It has been successful for many people because it mimics a real cigarette, so the smoker feels like they have been smoking, and they’ve had a hit of the nicotine from the E liquid, but actually they have not been smoking at all. This is for many people, the healthy alternative to traditional smoking and can help you to quit – for good.

E liquid – What Flavours Are There?

E liquid is the substance that you need to put inside an electronic cigarette in order for it to work. There are many different types of liquid that you can purchase. E liquid is cost effective and therefore many people decide to buy various different types of E liquid so that they can change it, depending on their mood.

E Liquids come in various different flavours. A first time user of the electronic cigarette might want to try a traditional cigarette flavour in order to truly mimic the taste of real cigarette. When withdrawal symptoms are high after quitting cigarette smoking, it can be comforting to have the real taste of the normal cigarette in an electronic cigarette.

However, many other people decide to try different flavours and some even decide to be experimental and create their own flavours.

The e liquid flavours that you can get range from vanilla, chocolate, peach, cherry, tomato, coffee, and many others as well. If you buy a DIY E liquid kit, you can combine some of these flavours to create your own unique taste. Some people like to be really wacky and combine peculiar flavours together. You might just discover something really great in mixing together your own flavours. In a do-it-yourself kit you will have all the apparatus needed to create your own E liquid. This will include the pipettes that you need as well as unlabelled and empty bottles so that you can store the E liquid. They will also comes with labels so that you can write on each bottle what you used in each item.

When it comes to your E liquid you also need to decide on which strength of nicotine you like. There are many different strengths of e liquid, ranging from super high nicotine strength for the very heavy user, to light and even a zero strength e liquid. This makes it ideal for people who are looking to quit smoking, because they can gradually cut down on the doses of nicotine overtime.

This could be compared with nicotine replacement therapies such as nicotine patches, gums and mints. By substituting your cigarette with nicotine, you can gradually isolate the issue and sensibly cut down on your nicotine intake over time.

Some people believe that by cutting out nicotine completely and suddenly, you will suffer from irritation and nausea as well as other withdrawal symptoms to make it difficult for you to stay on the right track.

When it comes to E liquid, everybody is different and has different tastes and unique requirements. What you have probably will be different from your friend, and so you should try and create your own flavour.

How To Avoid Weight Gain After Quitting Smoking

The hard part has been achieved and you have quit smoking by either going cold turkey or by using a quit smoking aid such as vaping e liquid using a electronic cigarette, NRTs or even using hypnotherapy to help you beat the nicotine addiction.

It is common knowledge that people gain weight after they give up smoking…but why is this? There are 3 main reasons:

  • Smoking causes our metabolism to increase slightly
  • A heavy smoker is thought to burn 200 calories per day
  • Nicotine suppresses your appetite.

When a smoker initially quits it throws the body into a state of shock. Unfortunately not having a daily dosage of tobacco is an increased side effect. This could be caused because when a smoker previously smoked they avoided the little in between meals in order to light up. Also because nicotine is known to be a stimulant it may interfere with the natural release of the insulin hormone. This is important because insulin is responsible for controlling glucose levels and if this process is halted the smoker will become vaguely hyperglycaemic leading to the brain slowing down the hormones and additional signals that trigger hunger.

Furthermore straight after quitting the urge to have a cigarette is very high and many people comfort eat and use food as a substitute to the cigarette which will ease the pain of withdrawal.

Research conducted by UK and French researchers shows that the weight gained after giving up smoking is much more than previously thought.

“The average weight gain associated with giving up smoking is much higher than previously thought, experts have found.

People can expect to put on up to 5kg (11lb) within a year of quitting, research published on bmj.com suggests.

This is more than the typical 3kg often quoted in advice leaflets and the 2.3kg many women smokers say they would be willing to tolerate in order to quit.

But the health benefits of giving up smoking far outweigh what is still a “modest” gain, say experts.

The research, based on results from 62 studies, found that former smokers gained an average of 4.67kg in the 12 months after they quit.

Most of the excess weight was gained during the first three months.

But the changes in body weight varied widely from person to person. About 16% of quitters lost weight, while 13% gained more than 10kg.

Whether the individual used nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches or gum, made no difference in terms of weight.”

However it is not all bad news, even though the weight gain may be higher than previously thought there are still ways to avoid gaining weight and stay slim. These include:

Exercise Exercise is the best way to combat weight gain. Because once you quit your metabolism slows so fitting in a daily form of exercise is important. You don’t have to join a gym and be excessive – just a simple half an hour of exercise everyday will be all you need. You can even just go for a brisk little walk around your local park or take the dog for another walk.

Change in Diet – First of all by diet I mean what you eat…not how much you eat. By changing your diet to include healthy meals you will stop yourself from putting on the pounds. Eat fruit and vegetables and try to substitute your food with low fat equivalents.

Give Up The Booze – Alcohol can be very high in calories however that is not the only downfall. Many people have quit smoking only to have a smoke on a night out drinking and destroyed their weeks if not months of hard work.

Luckily the hard part is quitting, once you have quit don’t be put off by a few pounds of increased weight. As seen above just a simple change in your daily exercise and eating plans is all that is needed to keep you from gaining excess weight.

Buying An Electronic Cigarette For A Present

Quitting smoking is tough because of the withdrawal symptoms that you experience through the lack of nicotine which enters our system as we smoke. This is why many people try to adopt nicotine replacement therapies in order to correctly wean themselves off the smoking habit. Using nicotine patches and nicotine gums is one way of doing this, but the electronic cigarette is a new and innovative way of achieving this as well.

The electronic cigarette is a battery-powered device which looks like a normal cigarette and you take a “drag” on it in the same way as you would not cigarette.

What E Liquid Would I Like?

E liquid is a substance which is placed inside your electronic cigarette. It is essential for the full function of your electronic cigarette. You may have heard that there are many different E liquids on the market, and you would be right. There are so many to choose from that many people do not know which to go for first. A first time user of the electronic cigarette will probably find the amount of choice overwhelming!

Some people like to start off with traditional cigarette flavours, so that they can mimic the real smoking experience as closely as possible. This is ideal for the first time user who is trying to use the electronic cigarette to quit smoking.

Other people like to experiment with their flavours, for example some people like to go for coffee or chocolate flavour. You can also buy a DIY E liquid kit, which will allow you mix various different flavours together. For example, you could combine lemon with honey, or even vanilla with chocolate! Anything you like you can mix together. Even if you think you might not like a flavour, for example if you do not like coffee, do not immediately discount the coffee flavoured E liquid as often it can have a different flavour and you might actually enjoy it!

The E liquid you choose will probably be different to that of your friends. Everybody has unique tastes and this means that you need to find your own likes and dislikes which may take a process of trial and error. This is perfectly normal, so just enjoy it!

How Does My E Liquid Work In My Electronic Cigarette?

An electronic cigarette is an electronic, battery operated smoking device. There are various different types of e-cigarettes, but they all need e liquid in order to work. Each electronic cigarette has three main parts in order for it to work correctly; this includes the atomizer, the cartridge and the battery.

Electronic cigarettes simulate the look and feel of the smoking experience, and this is achieved through the size of the e cig, how it is held and also the e liquid within it. The nicotine cartridge has two parts to it, which includes a mouthpiece and a reservoir. A filling that is within the reservoir soaks up the e-liquid. The e-liquid contains nicotine which is the addictive chemical to smoking. A smoker who is trying to cut down their smoking habit may want to use the nicotine to effectively wean themselves off of the smoking habit. This is because the nicotine in the e liquid comes in various strengths so you can start off with the strongest strength and then cut down until you only have the weakest strength available.

E liquid can also be flavoured to mimic many different tastes. This includes menthol, as well as sweeter tastes like vanilla, cherry or chocolate. You can also get the tobacco taste, depending on your preference. The e-liquid is a mixture of propylene glycol, nicotine, water and flavouring.

E-liquid doesn’t usually work well with an automatic battery which is why many electronic cigarettes have an on and off switch. This also stops you from turning on the e cig accidently in your bag or pocket. After turning the e-cigarette on, the atomizer then ignites and the e liquid is heated. The smoker can then puff on the e-cig.

The atomizer contains a wick and a filament; the metal wick makes a small amount of nicotine solution flow down to the filament. This filament is a tightly coiled wire that heats up quickly and the vapour is released.

An e liquid bottle works on a dispense per drop basis, which means that the user does not have to get their hands messy when adding the e liquid into the e cig. The e liquid drops last for the equivalent of around 20 cigarettes, making them very cost effective indeed. After the initial set up costs of the e cig and buying the e liquids, you can save money on your smoking habit in the long run.

What Is E-Liquid and How Do I Use It?

E-Liquid is a liquid used in the electronic cigarette, which contains nicotine. It consists of propylene glycol which is considered to be very safe by medical agencies. E-liquid also contains a flavour, this is meant to simulate the experience of normal smoking, but without the tobacco which is in normal cigarettes.

E-liquid is also known as other names, like e-juice, or nicotine liquid. Whatever you refer to it as, it all works in the same way.

It is usually sold in bottles and are dispensed per drop. You normally only need 2 or 3 drops in your e-cigarette for it to work so don’t overuse it. The e liquid is dripped into the refillable cartridge in the e cigarette, or straight into the atomiser, which is in the e cig.

It is then heated, and the vapour which is released is then inhaled but is totally safe. It can even be breathed in by people around you with no harm to their health.

To refill your e-cig, you will first need to open the cartridge. You should drip a small amount of the e-liquid into the cartomizer and then replace the filling. You can then close the cartridge. Make sure not to overload the e liquid into the atomizer. It should be full but not over spilling.

There is also an injection method for the refilling of the e liquid, which means you will need an injector. You can directly drop the e-liquid into the filling after drawing out 5 to 10 ml of e-liquid. You should deposit a small amount of e-liquid into the e cig and then repeat this at the bottom of the filler. You can then replace the cap and go about using your e cig.

You should make sure that after you’ve filled your e-cigarette, you should squirt any leftovers back into the bottle so that there is no wastage. Make sure you keep all your tools clean and also your e cig clean. This will lead to the best running of your e cigarette.

You can get your e liquid in various flavours, from coffee to chocolate to fruit! You can even choose traditional flavours of cigarettes so that you really can simulate the smoking and taste of a real cigarette. You won’t know the difference, but your lungs will as they will no longer be clogged up with tar and toxins like carbon monoxide!

How strong is the nicotine content in the vanilla e liquid?

The Real Cost of Smoking

A stop smoking programme has released new figures that show, for the first time, the true cost of smoking. This has never really been tackled by other reports due to the complexity of figuring out the cost both in terms of an individual’s financial perspective and the cost to the NHS.

According to the program that is based in the North East it costs the region more than £210million every year to deal with smokers.

This report is also based on the lives lost, illness and the cost to the NHS.

According to the report, in Northumberland alone, 18 per cent of adults are estimated to smoke regularly. However, smoking rates in Northumberland are lower than the English average.

This makes approximately 46,500 smokers in total across the county.

Sue Milner, the director of public health for Northumberland, commented on the report saying, “Smoking is the single greatest cause of preventable illness and premature death in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. The benefits of giving up smoking are instant. After 20 minutes blood pressure starts to fall, in 24 hours the body is free from carbon monoxide and in 10 years an ex-smoker has lowered their risk of heart disease to the same level as someone who has never smoked before. Quitting smoking remains the single most important thing you can do to improve your health.  There is a variety of help and support available for people who would like to give up smoking and I want to urge as many people as possible to give it a try.”

In Northumberland, there will be approximately 445 deaths every year which are directly linked to smoking. This is the same as 225.3 deaths per 100,000. Patients may come in for various reasons, including COPDs where smokers have difficulty breathing due to constant smoking over the years, they may also have a stroke or other complaints like bad breath or rotting gums. There are a whole host of complaints a smoker may have after a lifetime of smoking. Even just a couple of years of smoking can cause you harm.

The report goes further, looking into the overall cost of smoking linked hospital admissions. In Northumberland this is calculated to be £6.23million every year – a huge cost to the NHS. The report also looked into the cost of GP admissions in the county. Smoking is also estimated to cost Northumberland £2million per year in GP consultations.

This means that the overall cost of smoking related disease in Northumberland to the NHS is £11.55million per year!

There are numerous options for a smoker to quit if they wish so with the latest being the electronic cigarette. The e cig as it is also known uses e liquid which can be bought in many different flavours and strengths. UK e liquid can be bought from shops, but to find the cheapest e liquid going online is your best option.

 

Real vs. Electronic Cigarettes – E Liquid

Many people may wonder what the difference is, between real and e cigarettes.

First, you probably know what a real cigarette is, so here is a definition of an e cig:

An electronic cigarette is a battery-powered inhaler device that provides doses of nicotine. The vapour it gives off is harmless and the taste usually mimics a flavour, like a cigar, or even fruit flavours and chocolate. There is no actual combustion involved so nothing burns with the e cig.

Most e-cigs are designed to also look like an actual cigarette. You hold it in the same way and inhale it in the same way…. so it feels just the same.

E-cigarettes are generally made up of these elements:

  • a rechargeable battery
  • the atomizer (heating element)
  • the cartridge (resembling the filter)

Both real contain nicotine.

Nicotine is the drug your brain is addicted to. It works like caffeine. You can choose the level of nicotine you have in your e cig, but opting for differing e liquid strengths .

Real cigarettes are more dangerous, though.

Nicotine is addictive but if that were all you were getting from a real cigarette, it wouldn’t so bad. The real danger is in the fact that there are more than 4,000 chemicals found in tobacco smoke. Many of these chemicals are medically proven and known to cause cancer. Real cigarettes contain chemicals like carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide and benzene.

E-cigarettes do not burn and do not contain tar. They also do not contain any other chemicals. This makes it a healthier alternative to smoking.

E cigs don’t pose the same risk as real cigs

There are many more facts about cigarettes which make you realise how dangerous they are, not just for your health. The smell — smokers don’t notice it but everyone else does. The stink gets in all places like your car, your hair, your clothes and your furniture. E cigs don’t smell. Second hand smoke — Smokers who expose others to second hand smoke could be putting them in danger. E cigs emit harmless vapours. Ashes – ashtrays and burn holes are common sights for smokers but with e cigs you get none of this. Money –After the initial investment of an e-cigarette, the replacement cartridges will be far more cost effective than the cost of real cigarettes. It usually runs at half the cost, saving you money. This money could go towards something much more meaningful like a family holiday or even paying off debts and credit cards. Also you can buy discount e liquid online which is much cheaper than purchasing a packet of cigarettes.

E-cigarettes can help you to stop smoking. E cigs can help you quit smoking as part of a quit smoking support schedule, because you can decrease the concentration of nicotine in the e cig. This means you can effectively “wean yourself” off the nicotine habit.

There are many reasons to quit smoking, as well as the issues mentioned here.

The Hidden Costs of Smoking

Many people hear of the health benefits to quitting smoking. But have you considered the financial ones?

You probably aren’t aware how much this smoking habit is costing you. You may know that each pack costs you £6, which could mean you are spending £800 a year or more. This may have got your attention, but there are many other costs too.

There are a number of hidden costs linked with smoking.

This includes:

·         Life Insurance. Statistics show that smokers die earlier than non smokers. This means that the cost for life insurance is much higher than for non smokers. Sometimes it can be double! This may amount to thousands of pounds in total each and every year.

·         Home Insurance. This is linked to the above. You may not think the two are related, but statistics show that people who smoke have a higher risk of fires in their home than people that don’t smoke. This means smokers pay higher premiums than non smokers which could amount to hundreds of pounds a year.

·         Value of your home. Smoking in your home can cause damage to the walls and ceilings, leaving unsightly stains. This means a house will decrease its value. Also, viewers are less likely to find your home attractive when looking around the property. This is because the smell will also play a part in their decisions, subconsciously making them feel repelled in the house.

·         Car Insurance. Statistics show that smokers get into more car accidents because they are distracted when lighting up. This means your car insurance may also be higher.

·         Car Value. Just like the example of a home losing its value, so too can a car. The stench of cigarettes is even harder to remove from a vehicle, no matter how hard you try and scrub it out it can linger for months and months.

·         Cost of Cleaning. Smokers usually need to pay more money to keep their clothes and possessions clean.

·         Dental Care. Smokers have more dental and gum problems than non smokers. This can be very expensive to rectify!

The above examples show just how costly smoking can become, and the massive impact it will have on your life. To quit, many people choose to wean themselves off by choosing e cigs and e liquid, others use hypnotherapy, acupuncture and meditation to beat their habit and get their finances back on track.

10 Reasons To Stop Smoking

Everyone knows smoking is bad for your health, but there are other reasons you should quit, too. These include:

  1. Smoking is hazardous to other people. Second hand smoke is also a major health concern, which could cause asthma attacks, COPDs, and even cancers in your nearest and dearest. Don’t let them pay for your habit!

  5. Smoking is bad for your child. If you’re pregnant, your unborn baby could be born prematurely, and in some cases could be stillborn. This is devastating for any expectant mother, so cut out any risks asap.
  6. Your skin suffers. You’ll never have celebrity type smooth and perfect skin if you smoke. It clogs pores, making skin dull and lifeless.
  7. Your house suffers, too. If you smoke indoors, your walls will be discoloured. White paint will quickly be stained and yellow.
  8. Smoking harms your teeth and gums. Many smokers even lose their teeth to decay through smoking.
  9. Smoking is very expensive – your hard earned cash could be better spent on your family or that special get away you are trying to save for.
  10. Your life expectancy will be cut by TEN YEARS. If this isn’t a reason to quit, then what is? Prolong your life and give up your habit, today.

If you are a smoker and would like to give up the unhealthy and expensive habit there are a number of options out there available to you. These include a variety of NRTs (Nicotine Replacement Therapies) ranging from nicotine patches and gum to nicotine nasal spray. However most recently many smokers are turning to the Electronic Cigarette to help them combat their smoking addiction. Electronic Cigarettes are much cheaper in the long term then traditional smoking as you can buy cheap e liquid online and the Electronic Cigarette has a charger so if it runs out you can plug it in, charge it up, and start smoking again. E liquid contains the flavouring, nicotine and propylene glycol which makes the smoke visible when you vape, however non nicotine e liquid can be purchased if required.

 

How Do Electronic Cigarettes Work?

An electronic cigarette contains a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge. This all comes in a compact tube shape which looks and handles like a normal cigarette. A few drops of e liquid are placed into the cartridge which burns. You can buy e liquids in different flavours, but all e liquids mainly contain water, nicotine and propylene glycol.

This means that when the smoker uses the inhaler, which they inhale much like a normal cigarette, they are met with a hit of nicotine.

Because there are different strengths of e liquid, you can choose how much of a nicotine hit you would like. This is ideal for lighter smokers who would find the standard strength too strong. You can also buy e liquids which don’t contain any nicotine at all; this is for people who only want the taste of the flavour in the e liquid rather than anything related to nicotine. It is also useful for people who want to cut down their nicotine intake completely, as they can gradually wean themselves off of nicotine by adjusting strengths lower and lower.

When inhaled, the smoker will receive the flavor of the e liquid and a feeling of a real smoke, but will not be breathing in the many different toxins that normal cigarettes contain. This means it is safer to smoke around others, too. The vapour emitted from the electronic cigarette is harmless and odourless.

What Is An Electronic Cigarette?

An electronic cigarette is a battery charged inhaler consisting of a battery, an atomiser, and a cartridge. By adding e liquid to your electronic cigarette, you can gain the nicotine hit which you crave but without inhaling all of the other nasty toxins which normal cigarettes contain. This includes tar and carbon monoxide amongst many other hundreds of damaging chemicals.

An electronic cigarette looks and feels the same as a normal cigarette which means that as smokers, they can mimic the physical behaviour of holding and inhaling something. This can often help when tough cravings kick in!

The development and popularity of electronic cigarettes mean that there are now many accessories and different e liquid flavours to purchase. Flavours such as coconut, chocolate, peach, coffee, menthol are all best sellers for electronic cigarette retailers. There are also different strengths of e liquids available which is beneficial for people who are heavier or lighter smokers than the average smoker.

You only need a couple of drops of e liquid inside your atomiser to be able to use the electronic inhaler. This means that electronic cigarettes can actually last a lot longer than a normal pack of cigarettes would. As a result, choosing to use electronic cigarettes can also be financially beneficial.

The electronic cigarette needs to be charged much like a mobile phone. You can now buy car chargers which enable you to stand charge your inhaler on the go, so you are never without it.

Benefits Of Vaping

The first benefit of vaping is concerned with health. Although there are not many major studies that have confirmed the health implications of vaping rather than smoking normal cigarettes, many users of the electronic cigarette have reported their health to improve almost immediately after using the electronic inhaler. They can smell and taste things a lot more clearly and generally have more energy. Users of the electronic cigarette have also noticed an improvement to their ability to sleep well.

Because electronic cigarettes do not give off any kind of toxic vapour like normal cigarettes, everything around you will gradually begin to smell a lot fresher, including your furniture, your car, your skin, your clothes and your hair.

People that decide to use the electronic cigarette also feel that they have a greater amount of control over their nicotine cravings and as such, are able to become less dependent on nicotine. The fun flavours which e liquids can come in, including chocolate and fruit, also gives vaping more variety.

There is also a sizeable financial benefit to choosing vaping above normal cigarette smoking. By using e-liquid, you only need a few drops in your atomiser which will last you several days if you are an average cigarette smoker. Many users of the electronic cigarette have seen savings of many hundreds of pounds in UK just by choosing to vape. The average cost of a packet of cigarettes gradually rises each year which means that longer term savings can also be made. Further savings can be made by looking out for discount e liquid or special offers especially during this time of year.
