People begin smoking combustible cigarettes for various reasons — socioeconomic pressures, as a coping mechanism, personal influences, to lose weight and sometimes even under peer pressure — but regardless of the choices that have driven them to start this unhealthy habit, one of the main factors that have contributed to the ongoing cigarette frenzy is an undying need for nicotine. Since a smoker’s body has gotten used to the cycle of addiction, it quickly becomes difficult to alleviate the withdrawals and combat the discomforting cravings. That being said, many people successfully become ex-smokers because they combine their willpower with innovative methods of nicotine delivery, like e-cigs.
How does an e-cig work?
Electronic cigarettes are known for being a much safer method of nicotine delivery. Firstly, when they’re activated through the use of innovative battery technology, these simple, state-of-the-art devices begin to heat up the e-liquid within the capsule or cartomizer. Once the liquid reaches its boiling point it’s then converted into a vapor that can be inhaled and enjoyed. The best part is that the flavors and nicotine concentration levels can be chosen firsthand by the vaper. Simply select a lip-smacking aroma, such as strawberry or menthol, or any of the other five flavors we offer, choose your desired amount of nicotine and enjoy the benefits of a smoke-free lifestyle.
What are some other methods of nicotine delivery?
While vaping is a popular nicotine replacement therapy, nicotine gum, patches and lozenges are a few other methods that many ex-smokers have tried to combat their cravings.
- Nicotine gum: This is a type of chewing gum that delivers nicotine to the bloodstream.
- Nicotine patches: This is a transdermal patch that releases nicotine into the body through the skin.
- Nicotine lozenges: These tablets contain a certain dose of nicotine that is dissolved slowly and released into the mouth.
All of the above methods of nicotine delivery support tobacco cessation and give the person trying to quit the power to choose their nicotine concentration level. However, even though they can prove to be beneficial in terms of reducing a smoker’s need for nicotine, vaping is still the most popular method that ex-smokers use because it’s the only one that satisfies the habitual hand-to-mouth and inhaling action to which smokers are accustomed.
How does vaping compare?
It’s important to understand that smokers are not only addicted to the nicotine in their tobacco products; as time has passed, they have also found comfort in the entire smoking experience. Whether it’s the robust smell of fresh tobacco, the firm hold of a combustible cigarette between their fingers, the way it feels when they inhale or the gratifying rituals that have embedded themselves into their day-to-day lives, there’s simply more to quitting smoking then mitigating your body’s need for nicotine.
Since e-cigs, such as the Logic Pro series, look and feel like combustible cigarettes, they are able to easily weave themselves into an ex-smoker’s habitual routine. They also mimic the act of smoking by providing a similar hand-to-mouth action, while mirroring the inhalation of smoke by producing a rich vapor that can be savored and exhaled at the convenience of the vaper. While e-cigs are enriching the mental dependency of smoking, they’re also refining social routines and allowing the user to portably carry their e-cig and partake in needed breaks throughout the day.
