Smoking has been a serious threat to the lives of many from quite a long time. Nicotine is the main ingredient in it which is the most harmful for humans. Many people try to quit smoking but their attempts last for only a few days as the craving to smoke on most occasions is much more than their desire to quit it. After many years of research and with the use of technology, engineers have come up with a smart alternative i.e electronic cigarette. Large numbers of people have already switched to electronic smoking and this number is only expanding now. The main reason is that they look to be a much safer alternative to the traditional habit of smoking.
Electronic cigarettes do not release nicotine as smoke but instead uses vapor. The conventional methods of smoking also result in discoloration of the teeth and on some occasion causes oral health concerns as well. However there is no coloration problems to the teeth associated with E-Cigarettes. Another issue with the traditional way of smoking is that they will make you smelly and in fact your clothes, hand, hair, etc will also contain that smoky smell. This may cause a great concern to the people around you as well. Again when we move to Ecigarettes which are completely odorless are completely free of such problems. They in turn give a sweeter taste to one's mouth.

However one cannot deny the fact that the E-Cigs also have several health concerns and they too are not completely safe. Although there have been no major studies or evidences to prove about the safety issues or the health hazards that this may result into but people do feel that this may surely reduce the loss. Since there is no tar or any amount of smoke involved in ecigs, people feel that the probability of lung cancer definitely reduces in this case. One should also note that the nicotine content present in them is dependent on the users and products are also available where the nicotine present is 0mg as well.
The scientist at present feel that the risks involved with E-cigarettes is 1-2% of smoking. This thus is too less and can be ignored keeping in mind the harmful effects that the traditional way of smoking results to. In fact the scientists feel that if someone smokes for 8 months regularly then that will equal to the damage that one traditional smoke does.
