Pros and Cons of Using E-cigarettes

e-cigarettes from white cloudE-cigarettes have garnered a good deal of notoriety in the past few years. On the one hand, there are sensational reports of e-cigs exploding, causing injury to the user. Also, there have been quite a few articles stating that e-cigarettes contain a number of dangerous toxins.

Let's put things into perspective. Although e-cigs do ocassionally explode, they do so very rarely and usually, the explosions are related to user error, which can be anything from using the wrong chargers to making dangerous modifications to e-cigarettes.

And reports of toxins are similarly overblown. One news article I read not long ago pointed out that while E-cig vapors do contain harmful substances, it has something like 9 to 450 times less of those substance compared to smoking tobacco.

So let's clear the air and look at some of the real pros and cons of vaping.

Pros:

  1. It is cheaper than smoking. Some estimates show that a pack-a-day smoker can save over $1000 per year by switching to e-cigarettes. Make sure you use e-cigarette coupons and buy from online stores to get the best prices. I personally use White Cloud E-cig coupons myself. I think White Cloud provides the best e-cigs if you like simple setups.
  2. It's better for your health. Although vaping isn't 100% risk-free, almost all health experts will concede that it's probably much better than smoking traditional cigarettes. Notably, you aren't inhaling smoke, tar, or carbon monoxide when you vape.
  1. It's more fun. Sure, this can be a bit subjective, but you can tinker around with battery setups, experiment with different flavors, and even invent your own flavors. Vaping can therefore become an enjoyable hobby for many people.
  2. It smells better. You won't stink up your home or end up with bad breath if you smoke.

Cons:

  1. There are potentially unknown health risks. Vaping has only been around for 5 - 10 years, so the long term health ramifications are still largely unknown.
  2. E-cig batteries can become dangerous if you tamper with your e-cig setup. Just don't make modifications to your battery and e-cig setup unless you really know what you're doing.

As far as I'm concerned, the pros far outweigh the cons. To minimize the chance that you're inhaling something harmful, I like to use only US manufacturers of e-liquids. In addition, I only buy from stores that do not use Diacetyl/Acetyl in their e-liquids.
