If you have been lucky enough to use E cigarettes for any length of time you will know that they really are a great device. I’ve been using mine for a few years now and I really do love them, hence why I started E Cigarettes Buy, my bank account generally looks a lot better, I’m no longer spending over $200 a month on tobacco, and I don’t smell and neither does my home or car. But sadly there are a few people out there who have issues with electronic cigarettes, for a few reasons.
The FDA should be respected and so should their views. But they have apparently tested a few E cigarettes and found a few issues with them, nicotine levels were inconstant, the products were made to a poor quality standard and there were some unsavory chemicals found in them. But I honestly believe that they have sampled some horrible, cheap electronic cigarettes, which I strongly recommend that you *avoid. The bigger brands such as V2 Cigs, Green Smoke and Safe Cigs all do what they can to ensure that their products are safe to use and of the highest quality possible, gaining CE and RoSH certificates and other recognised qualifications and approvals.
This gives me peace of mind. I know that ingesting nicotine and other ingredients isn’t great for my health, but E cigarettes are an alternative to smoking tobacco, not stop smoking devices. I really do enjoy a smoke, so I had no intention of giving up, but I would rather be able to smoke everywhere, save a stack of money and not stink of tobacco smoke (a smell that I have grown to detest over the last few years).
Another group with issues are anti smoking groups. They have a few points, one being that this is a product that children could use, or could be attracted to. About a year ago this would have been a pretty valid point, I never saw any age restrictions on any E cigarette manufacturers websites. But over the last year pretty much all of the bigger brands have put age restrictions on their products. I’m not sure how the mall retailers work, but I’m sure they wouldn’t sell to under 18s (or under 21s, depending where you are). Children using these devices could lead them on to them taking up smoking tobacco cigarettes, of course this is something that we all want to prevent. But if kids want to get their hands on these devices they will, like they do with tobacco, alcohol and many other things, but honest sellers are trying their hardest to avoid children using these devices.
These groups also fear that people will just use electronic cigarettes rather than stopping completely, but I cant see how this is all that bad. As I mentioned above I really like to smoke and I would still be using tobacco if it wasn’t for E cigarettes, this is the same for a huge number of people. We know just how bad tobacco is for our health and the health of people around us, so if E cigarettes turn out to be even slightly better for us and everyone else then this is a great improvement.
There will never be a point in time when no one smokes, so we have to look to alternatives rather than trying to get people who don’t want to give up smoking, to stop, it wont happen. E cigarettes are the ideal alternative and tobacco users should be encouraged to try them out.
