Quit Smoking Today
In Order for you to quit smoking with the least withdrawals , you need the right nicotine level to properly deliver to your body .
First , Whats in A Cigarette
Cigarettes contain over 4000 chemicals and 599 ingredients ,these are the most harmful to the body
The most damaging components of tobacco smoke are:
- Tar – this is the collective term for the various particles suspended in tobacco smoke. The particles contain chemicals, including several cancer-causing substances (carcinogens). Tar is sticky and brown, and stains teeth, fingernails and lung tissue. Tar contains the carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene.
- Carbon monoxide – this odourless gas is fatal in large doses because it takes the place of oxygen in the blood. Each red blood cell contains a protein called haemoglobin that transports oxygen molecules around the body. However, carbon monoxide binds to haemoglobin better than oxygen. In response, the body makes more red blood cells to carry the oxygen it needs, but it makes the blood thicker. This means that when the body demands more oxygen during exercise, less oxygen reaches the brain, heart, muscles and other organs.
- Hydrogen cyanide – the lungs contain tiny hairs (cilia) that help to clean the lungs by moving foreign substances out. Hydrogen cyanide stops this lung clearance system from working properly, which means the poisonous chemicals in tobacco smoke can build up inside the lungs. Other chemicals in smoke that damage the lungs include hydrocarbons, nitrous oxides, organic acids, phenols and oxidising agents.
- Oxidizing chemicals – these highly reactive chemicals (which include free radicals) can damage the heart muscles and blood vessels. They react with cholesterol, leading to the build-up of fatty material on artery walls. Their actions lead to heart disease, stroke and blood vessel disease.
- Metals – tobacco smoke contains dangerous metals including arsenic, cadmium and lead. Several of these metals are carcinogenic.
- Radioactive compounds – tobacco smoke contains radioactive compounds that are known to be carcinogenic.
Whats in An Ecigarette
1. Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
These are the two most common ingredients that you’ll find in e liquid since they’re used as the suspension agent for the flavorings and nicotine. They’re both GRAS or Generally Recognized As Safe by the FDA, tasteless, and used safely by humans every day without incident. PG is thin, carries better flavor, produces less vapor, acts as a preservative and extends the life of your e juice, while VG is thick, produces denser vapor and is smoother on the throat
2. Food Grade Flavorings
Yup, flavors that you might already be eating and putting into your body on a daily basis are commonly used in e juice. Most of these flavors are perfectly safe
While there’s a bit of a controversy around nicotine, there’s no doubt that vaping an e cig with nicotine is MUCH safer than smoking a traditional cigarette that doesn’t only contain nicotine .With e juice, you’ll find bottles commonly advertised in a variety of strengths . nicotine in an e juice solution is measured as milligrams per milliliter , so each milliliter of e juice that you purchase will contain the advertised milligrams of nicotine. depending on your daily smoking habits.
Is Vaping Safer than smoking ? Read this study according to The Royal College of Psychians in the UK.
Promote e-cigarettes widely as substitute for smoking says new RCP report
The Royal College of Physicians' new report, nicotine without smoke ,tobacco harm reduction has concluded that e-cigarettes are likely to be beneficial to UK public health. Smokers can therefore be reassured and encouraged to use them, and the public can be reassured that e-cigarettes are much safer than smoking.
Tobacco smoking is addictive and lethal with half of all lifelong smokers dying early, losing an average of about 3 months of life expectancy for every year smoked after the age of 35 (some 10 years of life in total). Although smoking prevalence in the UK has reduced to 18%, 8.7 million people still smoke. Harm reduction provides an additional strategy to protect this group of smokers from disability and early death.
Since e-cigarettes became available in the UK in 2007, their use has been surrounded by medical and public controversy. This new 200-page report examines the science, public policy, regulation and ethics surrounding e-cigarettes and other non-tobacco sources of nicotine, and addresses these controversies and misunderstandings with conclusions based on the latest available evidence:
- E-cigarettes are not a gateway to smoking – in the UK, use of e-cigarettes is limited almost entirely to those who are already using, or have used, tobacco.
- E-cigarettes do not result in normalisation of smoking – there is no evidence that either nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or e-cigarette use has resulted in renormalisation of smoking. None of these products has to date attracted significant use among adult never-smokers, or demonstrated evidence of significant gateway progression into smoking among young people.
- E-cigarettes and quitting smoking - among smokers, e-cigarette use is likely to lead to quit attempts that would not otherwise have happened, and in a proportion of these to successful cessation. In this way, e-cigarettes can act as a gateway from smoking.
- E-cigarettes and long-term harm - the possibility of some harm from long-term e-cigarette use cannot be dismissed due to inhalation of the ingredients other than nicotine, but is likely to be very small, and substantially smaller than that arising from tobacco smoking. With appropriate product standards to minimise exposure to the other ingredients, it should be possible to reduce risks of physical health still further. Although it is not possible to estimate the long-term health risks associated with e-cigarettes precisely, the available data suggest that they are unlikely to exceed 5% of those associated with smoked tobacco products, and may well be substantially lower than this figure.
