Smoking with Technology

How many of us haven’t read a note on the cigar boxes, cigarette packets that “smoking is injurious to health”. Well it’s true that it is injurious not only to the active smokers but also to the passive smokers. Reason behind this is when the traditional cigarettes are lit; due to the presence of nicotine which is responsible for the smoke, carbon monoxide is released in to the atmosphere and thus making the active and passive smokers breathe the harmful gases. But for people addicted to the smoke of cigarettes a new cigarette in the electronic form was introduced in the market and commonly known as e-cigarettes or electronic cigarettes with eliquid.

How does this give smoke like traditional?

Electronic cigarettes are fueled by a fluid and this fluid is generally called as e-liquid. It is generally powered by a battery which converts the liquid to vapor with 0% release of carbon monoxide to the atmosphere. The amount of nicotine in the e-liquid of the fuel for the smoke depends on the strength of the e-cigarette.

E-liquids are usually made up of Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), or combination of both PG and VG. Propylene Glycol is a food flavoring agent and is non-toxic chemical. Vegetable Glycerin is a thick, sweet, vegetable liquid and is non toxic. Due to its high density it is hard to smoke. Thus, it is always preferred to have the e-liquids which are made up of combination of both PG and VG. The combinations are available in 80% PG/20% VG to 50% PG/50% VG. The e-liquids are also available in many types of flavors such as vanilla, apple, various fruit flavors, mint flavors and many more.

Is it good or bad?

Eliquid is safe to use as it do not require fire to burn and there is no dusty ash outcome. It is a good type of gift for the people who are addicted to smoking and do not want nicotine in their smoke as nicotine is majorly responsible for the release of harmful gases to the atmosphere and effects the respiratory system of the people.

If You Relish Smoking Then You Might Want To Read This

Are you a chain smoker? Do you enjoy smoking? If yes is your answer, then you have to continue reading this article till the end. Smoking and using tobacco products is killing more people every year than deadly diseases AIDS and SARS. Although Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome are fatal for people, these diseases do not kill as many people as the cancer or other diseases like cardiovascular problems, heart attack, lung infections, pneumonia etc., that are caused directly by smoking. Smoking also causes addiction to Nicotine which can bring about bad health effects. All these has put the chain smokers and casual smokers under adequate risk. People will face dire consequences if they do not mend their ways sooner or later. However the case for smokers will not be as easy as it sounds. Many cannot leave the habit easily and some will be addicted to it. There are some products like nicotine chewing gums that can chewed by the people who are addicted to Nicotine. This is a very good product as it does not amount to any smoking of tobacco which can be injurious even to the by standers. Also there are Nicotine patches that are being sold by many companies. These patches work very much like a sprain patch which releases the nicotine at time intervals. Although these are effective ways to control the urge for smoking one will not get the satisfaction of smoking which involves the warm smoking moving inside the respiratory system.


Switch to vaping and have a good time

The good news is that you need not stop smoking to free yourselves from the health risks. You can simply switch over to the habit of vaping. Vaping is the process of inhaling vapors that have been vaporized by a device called e cigarette. This is one of the recent inventions that have helped me to migrate to a safer but satisfying way of getting Nicotine in the blood system. You will need a liquid called e liquid that is a mixture of chemical substances and synthetic version of nicotine in low concentrations. More than nicotine it is the inordinate amount of particulate matter that is present in the smoke that causes a lot of respiratory diseases. In this vaping, we can reduce all those particulate matter and hence considerably reduce the harmful side effects. So, switch over to this better way of vaping instead of putting yourself and your body under danger.

What is E-liquid?

The base ingredients for E-liquid are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). E-liquids are generally 70% PG / 30% VG or 50% PG / 50% VG, this affects the viscosity of the liquid. Ingredients are then added to create specific tastes, often similar to flavourings used in cooking. Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are the cause of the vapour produced by E-cigarettes, as they draw in moisture when heated. Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are both non-toxic, food-grade substances, used in food manufacturing.

E-liquid is the fuel used in E-cigarettes. It usually contains nicotine and flavouring, and produces the vapour we exhale when using an E-cigarette. However, not all E-liquid contains nicotine, as there are a wide variety of flavours available, and some people simply enjoy tasting them. E-liquids are available in a variety of nicotine strengths, usually ranging from 6mg (extra light) to 24mg (high).

The thickness of vegetable glycerine means it produces more vapour, however it also gives a weaker ‘throat hit’. It is also sweeter than propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is much thinner, so produces less vapour, but it gives a better ‘throat hit’. Therefore a mix of the two provides the smoothest vape, and is recommended. So you can control the way you experience your E-cigarette by purchasing liquids with the right PG/VG ratio for your needs.

You may notice ‘toxic’ or ‘poison’ labels on your E-liquid, these are actually referring to the nicotine in the liquid. Pure nicotine is a poison, however it is quite difficult to get nicotine poisoning, especially at the levels it is present in E-liquids, so this is no reason to consider vaping unsafe.

However, there is more and more research being undertaken every day to discover the effects of E-cigarettes on the body. There are mixed opinions on whether vaping negatively affects our health, but it is generally agreed that it is much better for you than smoking.
