5 Mistakes Everyone Makes About E-Cigarettes
E-cigarettes have been around for a while, but there is still quite a lot of confusion surrounding these little devices. In fact, if you ask a random person on the street, they will probably just tell you that an E cigarette is just another form of a cigarette. While an E-cig might share the same name as a cigarette, to call them, the same thing would be a drastic oversimplification. So, let’s look at some of the things that everyone gets wrong when they think about E-cigs.
They Taste Like A Cigarette
Not true, many e-cigarettes don’t taste anything like a typical cigarette. In fact, one of the best things about e-cigs is that you can buy different flavor e juice. Whether you want to taste something such as strawberry, blueberry or coca cola, you can. My only question is, how long until they start making alcohol flavored juices so we can combine two cravings. The fact is if you do use an e-cig you probably won’t have that nasty taste that smokers have in their mouth long after they take a puff. Unless of course you like that taste in which case, you can still get it with one of the e-cig flavors.
They Aren’t Cool
Oh contrary, e-cigs are certainly cool as shown by how widely they have been embraced by society. In fact, if you watched the Oscars this year, you might have noticed quite a few people using a cigarette. Including none other than Mr. Leonardo Decaprio. Leo isn’t the only celeb that has been caught using an e-cig though. Lots of them seem to love the taste of vaping. In fact, it has become a new trend in Hollywood that doesn’t look to disappear anytime soon.
E-cigs contain nicotine
Again, it all depends on what liquid you use. If you want to, you can use a liquid that contains zero levels of nicotine. That’s quite cool because it essentially removes the thing that most people don’t like about smoking. Nicotine is basically what makes a cigarette addictive. Without it, you’re just blowing smoke into your lungs. This is why e-cigs have proved to be popular with former cig users and noncig users alike.
No Second Hand Smoke
One of the most common beliefs about e-cigs is that they don’t produce second-hand smoke. While this is technically correct it is not quite as simple as that. In fact, experts believe that e-cigs do produce a degree of second-hand substances, released into the air. That’s why they are now not allowed in most public places, sharing the fate of other cigarettes.
You Never Know What’s In An E cig
This is only going to be true if you’re buying liquid off the back of a truck, in Asia, from a man with shifty eyes. If you buy from a reputable company, you’ll find a useful list of ingredients in the liquid. It will tell you everything you need to know about what you’re intaking.
