Quitting smoking is one of the most common New Year\’s resolutions. And for many smokers who resolve to quit smoking, it all too often ends up on their list of resolutions the next year, and the next year, and so on. Let\’s face it – quitting smoking is not an easy thing to do.
There are many methods to help you quit smoking such as nicotine gum, nicotine patches, going cold turkey, and even hypnosis. While all of these methods have their merits, there\’s no 100% fool-proof way to quit smoking, and many smokers find themselves back to their old habits. However, many smokers are now starting to use electronic cigarettes to help them quit smoking and are reporting great success with it.
One of the main reasons why electronic cigarettes have become the popular choice for quitting smoking is because they mimic the act of smoking. That is not something that can be replicated with patches, gum, cold turkey or other methods. With e-cigarettes, you get the familiar feeling of putting the cigarette to your mouth, inhaling and exhaling a cloud of vapor.
Electronic cigarettes act much like a traditional cigarette – you put the e-cig to your mouth and inhale the nicotine vapor and exhale as if you were smoking a regular cigarette. Smokers get that old familiar feeling of smoking. It\’s a psychological effect you can\’t really put your finger on, but it brings a level of comfort to longtime smokers.
Another bonus to e-cigarettes is the cartridge varieties that are offered. You can get cartridges in a wide range of flavors. They offer many different types of tobacco cartridges that mimic the taste of many popular brands of traditional cigarettes, as well as other cigarette varieties like menthol. If you enjoy smoking hookah, or flavored tobacco, there are also a wide assortment of flavored cartridges available. Another great thing about the cartridges is that they are offered in a wide range of nicotine strengths, from very high powered ones that deliver a strong nicotine hit, to others that have little to no nicotine at all. This aids in smoking cessation as you can gradually step down to lower nicotine levels as your cravings get lower and lower.
If quitting smoking is one of your wishes, and you\’ve failed with cold turkey, gum or patches, there is hope for you yet in electronic cigarettes. You still get your fix of nicotine as well as the comforting muscle memory of smoking cigarettes. It\’s no wonder why they\’ve become a popular item in recent years and have become so effective as a smoking cessation device.
