How E-Cigarettes Work
Smoking e-cigarettes involves the use of an electronic device that heats a liquid and generates an aerosol mist. The user inhales the mist into their lungs much like smoking a traditional cigarette.
The electronic device can resemble a cigarette, pipe, or cigar, but also take the shape of unique modern, sleek-looking electronics. They all contain a heating element and a place to store liquid.
E-cigarette use is often referred to as vaping and the devices are known as vape pens or vapes.

Are There Benefits of E-Cigarettes?
Although there are risks, overall e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes. This is especially true of individuals who switch from their current use of traditional tobacco products to only using e-cigarettes.
E-cigarette aerosol mist contains fewer toxic chemicals than regular cigarettes. Although there are nicotine and other harmful toxins present, the amount is significantly less than in traditional cigarettes.
Tar, the most common cause of lung cancer in smokers, and carbon monoxide, one of the most harmful by-products of smoking are not produced by e-cigarettes.
The array of vape and e-cigarette products available allows for healthier choices.
Using a device for ejuice can be beneficial as there are a variety of flavor options and they come available with low or zero nicotine options. These options make it possible to experience the sensation of smoking without any negative effects of nicotine.
Because e-cigarettes do not produce the cloud of toxic smoke associated with regular cigarettes, they are more socially acceptable. The lack of smoke also eliminates the foul smell attached to regular cigarette smoking which makes them less offensive.
E-cigarette habits are also less expensive to maintain. The single-use cost to replenish an e-cigarette is less than purchasing cigarettes for the same amount of smokes.
E-Cigarettes Are an Option
If you’re interested in a smoking alternative, the benefits of e-cigarettes may appeal to you. You’ll likely ingest far fewer toxins and enjoy a less expensive, less offensive habit.
