The fact is, eCigs have undoubtably ALREADY saved many lives that would have been lost or at least made people very ill due to tobacco smoking related
diseases and illness.
In the UK alone, there are now well over a million people who have switched their nicotine delivery method from tobacco smoking to eCigs and vaping
And the huge majority of those, at least in the thousands of forum threads devoted to vaping i've read over the last few years, feel and perform much
better since they have switched to eCigs, myself and my wife included.
More energy, less depression, more stamina (in and out of the bedroom
) , clearer complexion, clearer thinking and our home, our car and we
ourselves don't stink anymore...well, the wife does, but not of ciggys!
The difference is amazing, and only takes a few weeks to a month or so to purge your body of all the toxins present in tobacco smoking...a lot of what
happens to your body when you stop smoking and switch to eCigs, almost all of what happens to your body actually is as a result of the body going
through a detox of the accumulated years of poisoning by smoking...people will find they may get a spotty, acne like outbreak somewhere on their body,
and they will be coughing up phlegm (brown gunge) from the lungs for several months after quitting the tobacco...this is your body clearing the crud
that's built up in it's lungs and tissues.
The poisons leech out through the pores in the skin, which causes a rash of spots like acne...the lungs clear themselves of built up tars and toxins
The whole process lasts only a month or two and then you're clear of the tobacco poisons.
As for people thinking PG or VG is dangerous...it isn't..unless you decided to drink gallons of it or tried to breath it!. It's ubiquitous,
literally in many, many types of product, toiletries, foods and drinks, toothpaste, cleaners, medicines (for sore throats no less) and in many other
types..too many to list.
It's also beginning to be used as a disinfectant and bacterialogical suppressant in operating theatres in some hospitals, due to it's strong
anti-bacterial properties. It's turned into vapour and pumped into the operating theatres.
Tests have been carried out on it for decade upon decade, almost a century, and not only has it been found to be harmless to human health and the
environment, in lab tests, managed to keep a group of rats exposed to an influenza virus alive who were forced to breathe concentrated PG
vapour...another group of rats that were infected with the influenza virus, but not made to breathe PG vapour all died.
Another (very dubious) test was carried out on schoolchildren back in the 1930's...Vapour was pumped into their classrooms with no ill effects
recorded at all (very dodgy experiment i'm sure you'd agree)
One thing to keep in mind when thinking about eCigs, is that they are not a 'quit device'...they are an alternative, very much healthier and
cleaner, 21st century nicotine delivery system.
Vapers have simply switched from filthy and poisonous (and deadly) tobacco smoking as a nicotine delivery system, to one...that isn't.
Nicotine is also not dangerous, unless you decided to drink a bottle of eliquid of course! Nicotine is now being prescribed to children and
others...yes, prescribed as a medicine, primarily as an appetite suppressant in cases of obesity, but it has also been shown to be beneficial in other
It's also present naturally in many vegetables we all routinely eat. 10g of Eggplant for example is estimated to contain as much nicotine as 3 hours
worth of exposure to passive tobacco smoke...but obviously without the toxins and tars, carcinogens and mutagens that second hand smoke has in it.
The problem with people and companies banning their employees from vaping is ignorance, plain and simple.
People are distrustful of anything new...eCigs are no exception to this, even though they've been out for quite a number of years now, people just
don't know much about them and assume they are producing smoke like a cigarette instead of just water vapour. Once people understand eCigs are
literal life savers, and are no harm to those who use them or those who are around them...they will become more accepting of them.
Good luck if you're considering making the switch from tobacco to eCigs...you'll start to wonder why you didn't do it years ago. But remember to do
your research properly...there are crap eCigs and there are 'Rolls Royce' quality eCigs...a good place to learn about this is eCig websites and
If it's ok with the mods here are a couple of links to some good forums with friendly and helpful members and staff that are happy to help out a new
vaper with advice and links etc.
