The Electronic Cigarette

posted in Drinking Items |

Yet another solution exists for you smoker’s out there who are sick of anti-smoking laws.  Next time you’re out at a bar and thinking about making the trip outside in the freezing winter temperatures to get your fix, consider the E-Cigarette.


 This little interesting device is a smokeless nicotine delivery system.  It works by inserting a nicotine cartridge in the bottom which releases tiny droplets of nicotine when it senses the user is inhaling.  This is also mixed with water vapor inside the nebulizer to create somewhat of “smoke,” which the users inhales and exhales.  It also has an orange LED light at the end which lights up as the user inhales to appear as if they were smoking.  Since there is no combustion or tobacco involved, it is a much safer alternative to regular cigarettes and also is not subject to anti-smoking laws.  I imagine you’d get a few complaints from patrons if you try to use it at the bar due to how real it looks, but theres no second hand smoke!  I think it’ll only be a matter of time before we see these popping up in our local pubs.  They are a little pricey at this point as well, running from $100-$150 but the nicotine cartridges are replaceable and come in a variety of nicotine concentrations and flavors.  Right now it is not considered a smoking cessation aid, however it could certainly be used as one by stepping down the strength of nicotine (it also comes in zero nicotine!).

    And doctors are beginning to take notice: http://www.e-cig.org/2008/12/09/family-doctor-takes-notice-of-electronic-cigarettes/. This is a link to a news report done on Dec 9th regarding the electronic cigarette.

    You can find them online for under $100 so make sure you do your research online before committing to a unit at the mall. Not all e-cigs are made the same, just like smokes. There are different sizes and of course, different cartridges. You have to find what fits for you. But if you are willing to make a change in your smoking habits, the e-cig is a great place to start.
