E-cigarettes, or electronic cigarettes, have been gaining popularity and making some major news as of late.  People are interested in e-cigarettes for a number of reasons.  Maybe you’ve been out to dinner or at your local tavern and have seen someone smoking an electronic cigarette and wondered why that person can smoke, but you can’t.  E-cigarettes are gaining in popularity both with smokers and non-smokers.  Below are some of the main reasons why e-cigarettes have been gaining so much attention and why so many people are giving them a try.

One of the main reasons for the increased popularity of e-cigarettes is the fact that you can smoke them in places where smoking tobacco cigarettes has been banned. Throughout the country smoking has been banned in many public places.  Gone are the days that you could sit in your favorite bar or restaurant and enjoy a smoke.  However, with electronic cigarettes, you can enjoy smoking almost anywhere.  Not only that, most people won’t even know that you are smoking unless they are looking right at you because there isn’t any smoke produced, just vapor.    Also, you don’t have to worry about your family inhaling your secondhand smoke.

Some people are drawn to e-cigarettes because they are trying to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes, but haven’t been successful in trying to quit cold turkey.  Many of the e-cigarettes come with varying amounts of nicotine and also have many flavors to offer.  Some people have been able to stop smoking by starting with an e-cigarette that has nicotine and then eventually switching to one that has no nicotine.

Some smokers are looking for a more cost-effective way to maintain their smoking habit and have cut costs by switching from tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes.  People are looking to cut costs as much as possible and the rising cost of cigarettes has left them looking for an inexpensive alternative.  Most people have reported saving money by making the switch from tobacco to e-cigarettes.

E-cigarettes are also gaining in popularity because they are more environmentally friendly than tobacco cigarettes.  Not only will you not be throwing out a cigarette butt every time you finish a smoke, you also won’t be putting as much pollution in the air and you won’t be subjecting those around you to secondhand smoke.  Gone are the days of constantly emptying out ashtrays filled with stinky cigarette butts.  Also, there’s no need to drive to the store every time you need a pack of cigarettes.  E-cigarettes can be ordered online and delivered right to your doorstep.

Many people try e-cigarettes because they are actually better for your health than tobacco cigarettes.  E-cigarettes still contain nicotine but you don’t get the harmful carbon monoxide or tar that you get from smoking tobacco cigarettes.  E-cigarettes are actually better for the health of those around you too.  Your family and friends no longer have to breath in your secondhand smoke.  Also, your loved one can kiss you without feeling like they just licked an ashtray.

As you can see, there are many different reasons that people choose to smoke electronic cigarettes.  If you are a smoker or love someone that smokes, certainly you will agree with many of the above reasons.  This article certainly does not list all of the benefits of electronic cigarettes.  Maybe you will find another reason to try them that isn’t listed above.  There truly are many benefits to smoking electronic cigarettes.  So go ahead and try a brand that sounds good to you.  You have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain!

    Quitting smoking is a terrible experience, especially for those who are “serious” smokers. I was a pack-a-day smoker (semi-serious), and I enjoyed smoking. The burn, the oral fixation, the social factor, the pleasant head buzz–basically the overall calming effect it had on me after a hard day’s work. And when I wasn’t at work, I smoked while watching TV, reading, browsing the Internet, etc. Smoking added more pleasure to the activities I already enjoyed. But I knew smoking was killing me.
    Over a period of six years, I attempted to quit dozens of times: patches, pills, gum, and the cold turkey method (the worst of all). None of these methods worked for me, and the sense of failure was discouraging. But I wasn’t the only one who was frustrated. My girlfriend of three years hated my addiction (let’s not sugar coat it by calling it a bad habit), and I couldn’t blame her. She hated the smell of it, whereas I had become indifferent to the lingering, pungent odor. Plus, I always had to carry extra gum or breath mints, or in other words, spend even more money on my already expensive addiction.
    On Valentine’s Day of 2011, my girlfriend bought me a gift–more for herself than for me (her words). When I tore open the gift, I had to read the box to figure out what the heck she had bought for me. It was electronic cigarette kit. Thankful as I was, I was a bit annoyed at her for not accepting me for who I was–a nicotine-addicted individual who wanted to quit, but had failed too many times. Sure, I enjoyed smoking, but I knew the long-term effects were lethal. That being said, I continued to smoke. Naturally, my girlfriend pestered me about when I was going to try the electronic cigarette, and I kept telling her that I wasn’t ready to quit–I was afraid of failing again, because I didn’t want to disappoint her or myself.
    It was about two months after my girlfriend bought me the electronic cigarette that I tried it for the first time–mind you, I had to brush off some dust from the box because I had buried in a drawer. To my surprise the electronic cigarette was enjoyable, as close as one could get to the real thing. I was still able to blow rings (albeit vapor rings); the oral fixation was satisfied; and the edge that I often felt when trying to quit was 95% gone. It took some time to use to, but I could hardly believe it when I went one full week without a real cigarette. That was three months ago. I don’t feel agitated from lack of nicotine, because the electronic cigarette is a nicotine supplement. It just doesn’t kill you, like the way cigarettes do. My lungs are free from the thousands of carcinogenic pollutants that are in real cigarettes, and I feel healthier. Also, two of my close friends tried my electronic cigarette and loved it. They bought their own, and now we sit around indoors and smoke, all without slowly killing ourselves.
    I can’t believe how afraid I was to embrace this positive and significantly less expensive change. My girlfriend’s gift saved my life, and I didn’t have to give up the pleasure of smoking. We were able to find common ground and for that, I am thankful.
    I know electronic cigarettes are a fairly new development, but I hope our society can embrace them. They are the safest alternative to the real thing, and I hope everyone who smokes real cigarettes can embrace this wonderful invention. If only they could make something like this for other addictions, like alcohol and more serious drugs. Maybe one day.
