By Chelsie Lacny


Nobody needs to tell you that smoking is bad for your health. You’ve heard all about how smoking increases your likelihood to develop cancer, heart disease, heart attacks, stroke and countless other life- threatening diseases. Still, according to the American Cancer Society, about 43.8 million adults in the United States were smokers in 2011. This is 19 percent of all adults, or 1 in 5 people. It doesn’t take a genius to know that it’s hard to quit smoking, even though the negatives far outweigh the positives.


There is a new craze going around that can help smokers enjoy the benefits of smoking and fulfill their craving for nicotine without having to worry about the harmful side effects of the traditional cigarette. This alternative is the electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette. The e-cigarette is a battery- powered device that you inhale the same way you would a regular cigarette, except rather than inhaling tobacco, you are inhaling liquid nicotine (e-liquid). This comes out as an odorless vapor when you exhale.

• They are reusable and cheap. Once you get your e-cigarette, the only


thing you’ll need to continue to purchase are the cartridges containing the e-liquid.

• You can smoke them almost anywhere. There are very few places


in the United States that ban smoking e-cigarettes indoors. In most of the country, it is perfectly legal to smoke an e-cigarette in a restaurant, bar or any public place. With your e-cigarette, you will never have to go outside for a nicotine fix again.


The novelty of e-cigarettes is starting to wear off as they become more and more common, and everyday people are beginning to realize that smoking them could be a good substitution for regular cigarettes. Whether you are intending to quit or simply want to puff away in peace, the e-cigarette is without a doubt the healthiest cigarette you will ever smoke, and it’s definitely a step in the right direction for smokers to live a healthier, happier and longer life.
