There are a number of inherent disadvantage associated with smoking tobacco. Whether it’s the sharp smell on your fingers, face, clothes and hair, the inconvenience of having to step outside every time you want to have a smoke or the high cost associated with the habit, smoking can truly be a hassle. Thankfully, by switching to an e cigarette, it is possible to still consume nicotine, but in a manner that is hassle free to your lifestyle.
The electronic devices have came a long way from they were originally released. According to HealthGuidance, “The current version looks more realistic and is comparatively more user friendly as compared to the earlier ones. The user gets almost the same satisfaction as the conventional cigarette. However, the major advantage is that it just offers ‘the experience’ of smoking but does not produce smoke. Unlike traditional cigarettes which release a cloud of smoke after a puff, there is no visual residue while using e cigarettes.” Since there is no residue such as that found after burning traditional tobacco, t here is no lingering smell or smoke. These alleviate the second hand smoke which can leave a strong smell inside your home and on your clothes and fingers.
Another advantage of e cigarettes is enhanced employee productivity. Many employers discriminate against those who smoke tobacco for a variety of reasons. These might include lost time in productivity due to smoke breaks and lost time at work or the heightened cost of health and life insurance. Some employers are forcing employees to go through a smoking cessation program in order to retain health insurance or even their job. By switching to vapor cigarettes, you can be classified as a non-smoker, avoiding the issue of employer smoking discrimination all together.
E-cigarette usage is also cheaper than cigarettes. A smoker who smokes a pack a day will save around $600 a year by switching to the smokeless device. Associated smoking costs such as the cost of lighters and increased life and health insurance costs should also be considered as well.
