Benefits and Drawbacks of E-cigarettes

The electronic cigarette offers the nicotine-addicted an alternative to smoking tobacco. E-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, instead, there’s a mechanism that heats up liquid nicotine, which turns into a vapor that smokers inhale and exhale. They are battery operated devices specifically designed to be used like the regular conventional cigarettes


Healthier Alternative

They have much less serious effects on the health of the users than ordinary cigarettes, since it only contains nicotine and various substances that enhance taste, therefore it doesn’t have the harmful ingredients such as tar, arsenic, formaldehyde, acetone, carbon monoxide as well as carcinogenic substances that are present in normal cigarettes.

Smoking e-cigarettes alleviated the desire to smoke after abstaining from smoking overnight, was well-tolerated, and pharmacologically more like a Nicorette inhaler than tobacco.
