its a poor substitution. Like a blow up doll instead of the real thing.
Most ( 99 %) of e-cig users are ex smokers. Smokers are drawn to e-cigs because they do the same thing a cigarette does without the harm cigarettes
cause. They deliver the nicotine the smoker craves.
At first a smoker may think, " nah, that's not going to work for me." but then to not continue to be killing themselves slowly with burning tobacco
they give the e-cig a try. They quickly find that " Damn these things do work". This attraction has the " I get to use a cool new high tech gadget
effect".Us men love that.
Then there is the aspect of Wow, There are thousands of flavors besides just regular tobacco and menthol. I am currently vaping Pineapple Milkshake,
Peanut Butter, Coffee with sweet cream, A tobacco flavor called Wyatt Earp, and Earl Grey Tea.
And lastly a smoker can use the e-cig just about anywhere, even most places smoking tobacco is banned. Even inside restaurants and movie theaters. No
smoke, No fire. No second hand hazard.
E-cigs are a little different, and have a learning curve, so it takes a little while to warm up to them, but once a smoker can successfully replace
smoking tobacco with an e-cig, over 80 % of them never look back. They are that effective at helping a person quit smoking.
I can tell you now after almost 7 months the idea of smoking a regular cigarette to me is nasty. Most e-cig users find this. A lot of e-cig users
quit smoking by accident. They get the e-cig to be able to get their nic fix in places they cannot smoke and find them using burning tobacco less and
less. Happens all the time. Amazing - a quit smoking product that works by accident !
We prefer to think of choosing to vape as switching brands, or using a smoking alternative other than simply quitting but in the end it has the same
effect - we stopped inhaling the burning tobacco and over 4000 chemicals that were killing us slowly.
