In recent years, E-Cigarettes have been built up and promoted as the safest way to quit smoking but due to their relative newness to the market in comparison with the patch, the lozenge, and the gum among other methods, manufacturers are now challenged with how and if to regulate them. The big question that has surrounded this controversial product is if they really work. The answer – Yes, E-Cigarettes work and not only do they work but they truly are the most efficient way to quit smoking.
They come in a variety of different sizes and shapes. They're manufactured to resemble anything from a pipe, to a permanent marker, to a pencil, to an actual cigar and/or cigarette. An E-Cigarette is battery-powered and contains liquid nicotine – it allows you to inhale wherever you wish to inhale and without leaving an odour. How this is accomplished is through leading the aforementioned nicotine through to an atomizing chamber in the device, where it is heated and subsequently turned into a vapour.

A major benefit to an E-Cigarette is that it contains strictly the addictive element – nicotine – while eliminating ALL of the other harmful chemicals found in tobacco.
What an E-Cigarette allows the user is the convenience of a “false cigarette”. They can carry it around in their pocket and take it out whenever they like. It gives the consumer the sense of puffing on a cigarette while at the same time, it being a much healthier alternative and one that's proving to be more effective than other methods of quitting smoking.
Now what an E-Cigarette isn't is an excuse for the customer to use it more than he would a cigarette. Remember, this is a device to help a user quit not only the smoking but eventually, the nicotine as well. Its' purpose is to slowly curtail the habit. One must exercise a certain amount of caution with this product and to be aware of how much they use it. However, if used correctly, the user will come to see why E-Cigarette users are among the most satisfied customer base out of all the products promoted as the cure for smoking.
There are many myths to E-Cigarettes as they continue to come into the mainstream and as the public continues to grasp the concept. A common myth is that no one knows what is in an E-Cigarette. The truth of the matter is that multiple studies have been conducted and depending on the type of E-Cigarette the consumer has bought, it may contain up to 20 ingredients – all of which are generally safe for human consumption when ingested prudently. To contrast this with a tobacco cigarette containing over 4,000 ingredients including carbon monoxide and arsenic as well as other cancer-causing agents, and one will come to find that an E-Cigarette remains much safer than any tobacco cigarette.
There is reason after reason to use an E-Cigarette when quitting cigarettes. An E-Cigarette is more reliable than a patch, a gum, or any other tobacco addiction treatments that may be in place and with the evidence provided here, one can easily conclude that they are far superior to other treatments.
