A Quick Electronic Cigarette Tutorial

Electronic cigarettes (E-cigs) are small devices that vaporize a reservoir of liquid into a mist to be inhaled and exhaled by users.  Electronic cigarettes often contain nicotine in order to simulate the act and experience of smoking.

Why People Use E-Cigs
To experience smoking and its effects in places where smoking is otherwise prohibited. This includes bars, offices, indoor events, and more. Although individuals can often smell the flavor being used at the instant it is being used, the vapor dissipates quickly in the air. This means no lingering smell and no secondhand effect for bystanders.
To reduce the impact of smoking or to quit altogether. Currently, the FDA does not recognize electronic cigarettes as an effective smoking cessation aid.  Research is being done and is thus far very promising—indicating that 50% of users cut their smoking by 50% or more within 6 months of use and roughly a quarter quitting altogether.  Electronic cigarettes themselves are far less harmful than traditional cigarettes (though to be clear, still more harmful than not smoking at all). Some individuals don’t even need their electronic cigarettes to have nicotine in them, as they are more attached to the ritual of smoking than the drug.
Because they love the lifestyle and the experience beyond that as a comparison to smoking. The use of electronic cigarettes can be compared to leisurely drinking wine.  People can, with proper tools and experience, produce the exact flavor and texture of vapor they prefer.  This drives many to become long-term members of the online e-cig community and take an enthusiast role with the products rather than that of an addict.  People interested in e-cigs in this way often use customizable electronic cigarette parts called mods.

What’s In E-Cigs
E-Cigs vaporize a liquid solution often called e-liquid or juice. The bulk of the liquid is a base made of propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) or a combination of both. These are common bases used in medical aerosols and are considered safe for consumption. E-liquids also contain nicotine (rated in milligrams per milliliter) and flavoring. Most companies put ingredient statements on their products or websites.  Learn about e-cig batteries here.

Mods and Modding
There is a level of electronic cigarettes beyond that of the simple cigarette-sized, automated devices. For individuals that like the experience of smoking more than the rituals and habits, there are devices called mods. Mods (right) are larger, manually-controlled devices. Individuals interested in mods and modding generally get involved in any of the online communities or forums that support and follow the hobby.

Research Supporting Electronic Cigarettes
Survey: Smokers converting to e-cigs report significant health improvements.
Review: Electronic cigarettes show tremendous promise.
Study: E-cigs successfully deliver nicotine to subjects.
Study: E-cigs dramatically reduce smoking inside 6 months of use.
Research: E-cigs have fewer volatile compounds than cigarettes.
Study: E-cig use has virtually no impact on heart function.
Study: E-cigs don’t impact lung function in users with COPD or asthma.

                Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
                The words in your post seem to be running off the screen
                in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

                The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.
                Kudos

                    Essential information for all new to or considering e-Cigs

                      After smoking cig’s for over 50 years, I almost died in Dec of 2012 from pneumonia. Spent 10 days in the hospital, 3 of which I don’t even remember. I had thought for years to quit but nothing I tried worked. I had bought a Mod kit in October that I never really gave a chance. When I was finally discharged, I started using the Mod e-cig. It has saved my life in so many ways! The models are o.k. but the battery life sucks for me.
                      This is a wonderful, informational site and one I am proud to be a part of!
