Electronic Cigarette No Nicotine








Electronic Cigarette No Nicotine


We all know that smoking cigarettes is not healthy.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is pretty much an idiot and you should stay away from them.  So what do you do when you want to quit smoking because of its ill health effects but you just can't stop when you get that craving for some sweet nicotine?  One solution is an electronic cigarette that uses no nicotine.  Companies that make these electronic cigarettes with no nicotine say that there are no adverse effects on health and they are a much better alternative to smoking actual cigarettes.

But hold on just a minute there.  The FDA has a few things to say about that.  Less than two years ago, the FDA released a study where they compared 10 different kinds of electronic cigarettes.  They found that many of them had harmful chemicals in them and even those that claimed to have no nicotine at all still had small amounts in them.

Instead of burning tobacco, the cigarettes use a battery that produces a mist as nicotine is sent right to the lungs.  There is even a red LED light at the end of the electronic cigarette that lights up to give off the impression of a real cigarette burning.  Sales for these devices have increased dramatically over the last couple of years and there are all kinds of flavors available.  Many argue that the choice of flavors makes them appealing to kids and young adults and could even lead to smoking in young people.  You can totally see how kids would try electronic cigarettes and then go to the real thing so they can try to be cool with their friends or whatever.  Kids are stupid.

So what the FDA has determined is that most of the electronic cigarettes are no better than regular cigarettes.  People should not be fooled into thinking that they provide a healthier option over regular cigarettes due to the chemicals found in them and that using these new electronic cigarettes will not help you quit regular smoking.

As long as the electronic cigarettes are out there to buy, members of the buying public will just have to decide for themselves.  Do they want to try some electronic cigarette and believe the lies told by the companies selling them, then they are free to do so.  This is America and that's why this country is so great.  If people want to eat constantly and balloon up to 400 pounds, they're allowed to do so.  There is a thing called freedom of choice here in America, and people in this country exercise that right every day by smoking outside in the cold rain just to get their hit of nicotine.

From what is looks like right now, there is just no perfect way to pretend your smoking while getting the same effects without the health hazards.  That's like saying you can eat a big cheeseburger with zero calories and have it still be delicious.  Some things just don't work that way.  Do you ever wonder why all the best tasting foods are so bad for you?  Why can't it be the other way around?  Why can't eating a whole pizza be good for your heart.  Some people live by the mantra of "if it tastes good, spit it out."  What kind of way is that to live?  Jack LaLanne was a fitness guru that lived into his 90s, but did he ever really live?   At least when it comes to eating?  Some people eat to live, others live to eat.  Which one are you?  Everyone should have a delicious steak once in a while.  Steakhouses are popular because steak is delicious.  I would much rather eat a steak than smoke a cigarette.  Beef is better than nicotine any day.
