The History of E-Cigs

Despite many dreadful and life threatening diseases in the present times, people cannot sustain their smoking habit permanently. This is because of the fact that smoking is highly addictive. However, many smokers have switched to E-cigs recently as reported by the electronic cigarette industry.
The e-cigs were introduced to the U.S in 2007 and serves to be a great replacement for smoking tobacco. Oddly enough, the cigarettes are very similar to the traditional cigarettes and can be mistaken for them if not paid much attention. However, if a closer look is given to the outer surface, the difference can be spotted. E-cigs don’t contain any tobacco, which is what makes them a healthy alternative. This alternative consists of a vapor which is inhaled and exhaled by the smoker instead. There is a mouthpiece and a liquid container which contains liquid nicotine and this turns into a vapor eventually. There are no chemicals present in these cigarettes, the ones which are majorly included in the traditional cigarettes.
Since its invention, e-cigs have captured the hearts of many satisfied customers. Manufacturers and customers believe that these cigarettes contain numerous benefits for smokers who cannot sustain a smoking habit or wish to try smoking. The interesting part is the fact that these cigarettes generate the same sensation in the human body as the traditional cigarettes, however, without the dreadful side effects. Even with all its advantages, many regulatory agencies and experts question its reliability. The questions mostly address the possibility of organ damage by vapor inhaling as well as other side effects of e-cigs for the smokers and the general public.
The electronic cigarette association was created in 2009 to speak up on behalf of these particular cigarettes. The ECA proved to be a solid platform where manufacturers and supporters of e-cigs collaborated to defend the product in order to generate awareness and attain selling rights for these cigarettes. Those against them demand that the product must be banned until the proper research has been made as it can prove to be harmful for the youth since these cigarettes are mostly targeted towards teenagers.
Due to the fact that e-cigs don’t contain tobacco, they are not subjected to any tobacco laws in the U.S therefore; they can be purchased without any age limit. This causes great trouble that children may get their hands on the wrong product and may even switch to traditional smoking once exposed to them. These cigarettes are easily accessible and purchasable online which is another factor that adds up to encourage young people becoming nicotine addicts at an early age.
Furthermore, the manufacturing companies of these cigarettes claim that the product can be smoked anywhere and everywhere, public restrictions still find it inadequate as it portrays inappropriate attitude in the open thus, imposing a variety of restrictions on the immense usage of them.
After conducting several surveys, it was revealed that smokers prefer smoking e-cigs in comparison to regular cigarettes because they are cheaper and can be used numerous times unlike the regular cigarettes.
