E-cig vs. Tobacco cig
Quit smoking |
It’s all the rage nowadays, people switching to the e-cigarette from regular tobacco cigarettes. I want to quit smoking altogether. It’s been advertised that the e-cig will help people quit smoking; you may have seen them and may not have. I have mixed feelings about the e-cig, and its ability to help people quit smoking. I guess I wanted to put it to the test, and the similarities and differences are telling me a different story.
The similarities of the tobacco cigarette and the electronic cigarette are way too comparable for me. First off they both have nicotine. My main goal would be to quit smoking nicotine entirely, not replace one with the other. Secondly they both have the same hand to mouth gesture of putting something in your mouth, and inhaling the smoke or vapor. Over the years of trying to quit I’ve realized that the hand to mouth gesture needs to stop to effectively quit smoking. Almost like when it’s time for children to stop sucking their thumb. It’s the gesture that feels comfortable, which needs to stop. Thirdly, they both still cost money to support the habit. I try not to pay attention to the money I can save, but it’s always in the back of my mind, so it would be nice to not spend any money on either of them. Lastly, they both need some sort of power source to work, fire for the tobacco, and electricity for the e-cig. I’ve been in a few situations when I couldn’t lite my cigarette, and it sucked. I haven’t had the e-cig long enough to be in the situation where my battery died and now I can’t smoke because the charger is at home or something, but that would happen to me. I guess avoiding the situation altogether would be best.
The differences have led me to believe something unexpected, which could possibly have been the intention, but it’s only a conspiracy. Let’s start with that the e-cig can be smoked anywhere, and the tobacco cigarette...
