Vaping e-cigs lead to smoking
One of the most common myths surrounding e-cigarettes is that vaping e-cigs lead to smoking. However this is a misconception. The fact is that vaping actually helps kick the habit of smoking traditional tobacco filled cigarettes. Many of the users have successfully quit smoking with the help of vaping. In fact, many of the users pick up vaping in order to give up smoking.
Ingredients in e-juices are a mystery
Another common myth about electronic hookahs is that the ingredients in their e-liquids is not known. Some people claim they don't know what they are inhaling. However that fact is that the ingredients in e-juices are not a secret. While regular cigarettes contain tobacco, tar, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and thousands of other harmful chemicals that result in fatal lung and heart diseases; e-cigarettes don't contain toxic tobacco and any such fatal chemicals.
Rather e-liquid contains USP grade vegetable glycerine, USP grade propylene glycol, nicotine, and various flavorings. These are the four ingredients that add to the taste of different e-juices. And these ingredients are same no matter from which manufacture you buy.
Propylene glycol is used in several food products and is also approved by the FDA. The amount of nicotine present in e-liquid is optional. E-liquids are available with or without nicotine. E-liquids come with different concentrations of nicotine to suit different tastes and needs. Users can enjoy e-juice with zero nicotine, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg and 24mg nicotine level.
In short, e-cigarettes' e-juices comprise of four main ingredients rather than toxic, hidden chemicals. These battery-operated devices simulates the best possible smoking experience possible but minus any harmful effects of tobacco.
Vaping e-cigarettes is costlier than smoking
The fact is electronic cigarettes are actually far less expensive as compared to regular tobacco filled cigarettes. An average pack of tobacco cigarette costs around $5 to $8. However a rechargeable electronic cigarette offers thousands of puffs from a single charge that is almost equal to 6 packs of cigarettes. That makes e-cigs far more cost-effective to conventional cigarettes.
Moreover e-cigs are low maintenance. They are battery operated devices that don't require anything to maintain and clean them. Unlike traditional hookahs that burn coal and regular cigarettes that produce ash; e-cigarettes or e-hookahs produce no ash.
When vaping electronic cigarettes, users don't have to worry about maintaining and cleaning them after use. Besides electronic cigarettes are run by long lasting batteries. While rechargeable vaporizers can be easily recharged when battery is over; disposable vaporizers offer hundreds of puffs.
These are the top three myths about electronic cigarettes. The fact is it is better and more affordable to vape e-cigs or e-hookahs than smoke harmful cigarettes.
