What is an E-cigarette and how does it Work?

on August 18, 2021


Are you struggling to give up smoking? How about a safer alternative to tobacco-heavy cigarettes? Ever considered switching to e-cigarettes? Not only will your lungs thank you, but so will the people around you because e-cigarettes do not produce smoke. Instead, you inhale the lighter vapour. What is an e-cigarette? Listen up!
An electronic cigarette, also known as a vape, is a battery-operated device that vaporizes an e-liquid containing nicotine into an aerosol. It is intended to be used as a safer and healthier alternative to cigarettes to reduce harmful toxins such as tobacco, tar, and carbon monoxide from entering your body.
What exactly is the difference between inhaling cigarette smoke versus vaporized liquid? Here are three main differences that make vaping is a safer choice than smoking:

Breathe easier
Have you heard of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)? This is a smoking-induced lung disease that causes obstruction to the airflow in the lungs. It is typically irreversible. The disease only worsens with time for every 9 out of 10 individuals who contract it.
If you are an avid smoker, the first thing you may notice while using e-cigarettes to quit smoking is the feeling of heaviness being “air-lifted” from your lungs. Doesn’t breathing easier make you feel better already?
This isn’t just a placebo! Inhaling vapor truly is safer for the lungs as it reduces the ingestion of harmful toxins that are produced by inhaling nicotine-heavy cigarette fumes.
Though it won’t get rid of any existing lung issues you may be facing, inhaling vapour is still safer than prolonging your smoking habits, which will only lead to further damage. That being said, it is important to remember that moderation is key. Vaping can still affect the lungs and lead to some harmful repercussions if you go overboard.

Teeth turn healthier
Did you know that the smoke created from tobacco and nicotine can leave a yellow stain on your teeth and creates bad breath? This not only affects those around you, but it can also lead to a loss of sense in taste due to the overpowering aftertaste of tobacco.
Cigarette smoke can also lead to severe gum disease, damaging the soft tissues and loosening the teeth, causing potential tooth loss.
Studies show that when one quits smoking and remains tobacco-free, the body gets flushed with more oxygen and nutrients. As a result, your teeth may slowly return to their natural shade.
So vaping may help you not just in your journey to quit tobacco but also lead to better oral health.

Fresher breath
Have you ever gone out for a quick smoke break and returned with an overwhelming odour of tobacco and smoke clinging to your clothes? Not only can this be disruptive to those around you, but the scent also lingers for a long time, pushing people away from you in social settings.
However, with e-cigarettes, you’ll never have to worry about bad breath! The juice provided with the device comes in a plethora of flavours such as refreshing mint and citrus notes that not only taste good but smell great as well.
However, do remember that e-cigarettes contain some nicotine which is highly addictive. It can affect brain development among the youth and is dangerous for pregnant and lactating women.
If you are not struggling with nicotine addiction, it makes better sense to steer away from any form of smoking and stick to a nic-free life.
