It is vital that this is understood by anyone considering using a smokeless cigarette. They are not intended as a method to help someone quit smoking. For anyone wanting this, a visit to a health professional should furnish all the information required.
Having said that, they can be used as a first step along a path to quitting, especially as they can be used to simulate the act of smoking something that can often be the difference between giving up and falling at the first hurdle. Just remember that they should be considered as a step and not an end in themselves.
It is far better to understand all the many advantages that electronic cigarettes can offer, especially for those who do not want to quit but rather to limit the amount of smoke they produce. For these people, electronic cigarettes are a great product and can make a real difference to the lives of their users.
One of the key reasons for this is that they do not contain some of the harmful chemicals normally associated with smoking such as carbon dioxide and tar. This means that they are much more pleasant to be around for other people such as friends, family and colleagues as they do not produce the foul smelling smoke that is the by-product of traditional smoking.
However, like many products, not all suppliers of the e-cig are equal and it is therefore certainly worthwhile spending just a little time choosing the best supplier so that a happy customer experience becomes a much greater possibility.
One of the first things to look for is a company that specializes in electronic cigarettes and related products. It may well be possible to buy an electronic cigarette from a mall or a general store, but is unlikely to be the best product and the chances that they will also stock a range of accessories will be somewhere between low and nil.
A specialist supplier will be much more familiar with customers' needs and will be able to offer a much higher level of customer service. A key part of this is stocking a wide range of accessories. These should include not just cartridges but also chargers, carrying cases and batteries. Even if you don't think you will need all of these, the very fact that they are available demonstrates the supplier's commitment to customer service.
Speaking of which, look for a company that offers an easy to use method of asking any questions you may have before making a purchase. The very best companies will offer an online "chat" option whereby a potential/current customer can talk with a member of staff and get all the information they require.
It is also worth checking the safety features included in the electronic cigarettes. For instance, look for the ability for the electronic system to stop if it detects too many inhalations over a short period.
Choosing to try an e-cig may well be a revelatory experience for many users. The odorless nature of electronic cigarettes is therefore a great advantage, not just for you but for your friends and family as well. For anyone wanting to continue to smoke, but without the smell and inconvenience of not being allowed inside many buildings, this method of "smoking" may well be a way to enjoy a past time without experiencing many restrictions.
