Electronic Cigarettes - New Help For Smokers Who Wish to Quit

It is no secret that smoking cigarettes is bad for your health. With smoking, comes the increased risk of coronary heart disease, ulcers, stroke and an increased incidence of respiratory infections. Furthermore, nicotine is highly addictive. In fact when you inhale cigarette smoke the nicotine activates the same reward systems in the brain as do other addictive drugs such as cocaine or amphetamines, although to less of a degree.

While nicotine does carry with it certain health risks of its own, without doubt, the most destructive aspect of smoking is the burning and inhaling of tobacco. In addition to the tobacco, your typical cigarette contains hundreds of additives, glue and paper, which when ignited, according to the Centers for Disease Control, harms nearly every organ of the body, causes cancer and cardiovascular and respiratory disease.

While there is no question that every cigarette smoker should make serious efforts to quit smoking, the common problem smokers encounter is just how difficult it is to actually quit. Those addicted to smoking can experience withdrawal symptoms such as anger, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, and an increase of appetite. These powerful withdrawal symptoms, perhaps, account for the fact that only 2.5 percent of all smokers will quit each year.

There is, however, new help for cigarette smokers who wish to avoid the harmful affects of smoking tobacco in the form of a new invention called the Electronic Cigarette. The electronic cigarette is a recently patented invention that allows a smoker to get their nicotine fix without all the harmful affects of smoking tobacco. Instead of burning tobacco, a smoker of an electronic cigarette inhales a nicotine based water vapor that is flavored like to tobacco. The device looks and feels very similar to an actual cigarette and the water vapor closely simulates the feeling of smoke filling the lungs, however, without all the harmful side affects.
