Most smokers I have met reach a point where they wish they could quit smoking. At the very least they wish they could find an alterative that is cost effective and a likely solution. The gum tastes nasty and the patch can be misapplied. Quitting cold turkey would be ideal, but not realistic. With these thoughts in mind it’s time to consider the e-cigarette. The e-cigarette is more cost effective, replacing a pricey carton of cigarettes with a $5 pack of cartridges or $15 of vape juice for a lesser price and higher yield. It tastes better, is healthier for those around you and, in the words of one friend, “Doesn’t make you want to hate your life.”
Vaping, or the use of an e-cigarette, is a newer option for the retiring smoker. You can choose either a small e-stick that looks like a cigarette or a liquid to vapor device. The upside to the smaller version of the e-cigarette is that it can be bought cheaply as a disposable device. A more permanent device may cost more but can be reloaded. The downside is these smaller e-cigs are easier to lose. People are so used to flicking a dead cigarette out the window or stomping on it to snuff it out they will do so without thinking. On top of this, they are small and easy to misplace. They can range in price from a two or three dollar disposable to a sixty dollar starter kit. I don’t recommend this item to those who easily lose items. You will pay almost as much as you did in cigarettes if you can’t keep track of the cartridges, e-cig, or charger.
The larger liquid vapor device is more child friendly and usually needs to be unlocked before use. Just remember to store the liquid out of a child’s reach. The liquids that can be used in them come in a very wide variety of flavors. They can also have varying levels of nicotine including none at all. The cost comes with replacing the liquid and heating coil in this device. It is, however, less likely to misplace this item compared to its smaller cousin.
Have you or a friend tried to quit smoking? What worked for you or them?
