How it works?
How Smoking Works?
As tobacco burns, the smoke produced contains small amounts of nicotine. By inhaling the smoke, nicotine is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. You can tell how fast the reaction is from the instant satisfaction that smoking provides. The problem is that along with nicotine you get 4,000+ unwanted chemicals including cyanide, benzene, arsenic and formaldehyde. It is the slow burning of the organic material that gives off tar and carbon monoxide. Tar sticks to your lungs and slowly releases cancer causing carcinogens, not to mention the ill effects of carbon monoxide and the physical changes that happens, to all the other chemicals in tobacco, when burned.
How vaping works?
By switching from combustion to vaporizing you eliminate the tar and other harmful chemicals caused by combustion. When you inhale vapour from your e-cigarette, nicotine (if used) is released in the same manner as it was with smoke. Instead of using smoke as the delivery method, water vapour is used. This means a vast majority of the toxic chemicals from smoke have been removed/eliminated. You get a similar sensation because many physical aspects of smoking remain. E-cigarettes provide a viable and satisfying alternative to traditional smoking.
What Are Electronic Cigarettes?
An Electronic Cigarette performs similarly to traditional smoking. It looks, feels and tastes like a cigarette or cigar. Instead of lighting and burning tobacco, the user activates a switch that heats up the liquid. This liquid turns into a vapour which the user inhales. The vapour exhaled is 98% water but looks very similar to smoke. The vapour dissipates within seconds and leaves only a slight sweet scent.
The Electronic Cigarette (or e-cig) is driven by modern microprocessor technology, a rechargeable battery, atomizer/cartomizer/clearomizer, that are refillable. E-liquid contains three main ingredients, vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, flavor and the choice to have it with or without nicotine.
