Electronic cigarettes work with water vapor and have only trace amounts
of known carcinogens. Plus, they do not burn and produce smoke. Normal
tobacco cigarettes have many known toxins in their ingredients, plus they
produce smoke. This smoke introduces more toxic substances when inhaled.
Smoking Hub lists some of hundreds of toxic ingredients in normal
tobacco cigarettes and their effects on the human body. If you want to
quit smoking, do so. However, short of that, we advise you to try an e-cigarette.
In some cases, people use electronic cigarettes to quit, though the FDA
has not approved it for such activity. For an informed decision see
Health New Zealand research.
Can be puffed in restaurants, the work place, and the like
In most cases, you can use an electronic cigarette in the same places
you were able to smoke a normal tobacco cigarette in the past. They do not put
off harmful second hand smoke. They put off a small amount of water vapor
that dissipates very quickly, which brings us to our next point.
No second hand smoke
Since water vapor dissipates much faster than smoke, you won't be putting
others at risk. Second hand smoke is the reason smoking has been prohibited
in so many places. Water vapor is a lot safer for others.
Electronic cigarettes cost less than normal tobacco cigarettes. There
have been estimates that one can save several dollars by buying a electronic
cigarette cartridge instead of buying a pack of normal tobacco cigarettes.
You can get a cartridge for about $2.50. Roughly speaking, this
lasts as long as a pack of cigarettes. You know how much you pay for a
pack of cigarettes, so do the math. If you're really good at math, figure
your savings over a year's time.

The smell from smoke can be a turn off to many people. Whiter teeth,
fresher breath, no smell in your clothes are some added benefits.
No ashtrays to deal with and no fire hazards
Electronic cigarettes don't burn. They work from a battery and a cartridge.
The only thing they put off is a small disposable cartridge. You don't
need ashtrays or lighters. You can't get burned from them. They don't
burn holes in your tables, chairs, car seats, and the like. You can't accidentally
leave them burning to burn your house down.
These are just some of the benefits of electronic cigarettes. Find out about all the benefits
yourself by trying them. We are sure you will like them.
