Are E-Cigarettes Smokeless Cigarettes?

While there are several NRT’s on the market, one of the newest is the E-Cigarettes. The purpose of NRT is to help the smoker decrease the need for nicotine in the body, by slowly introducing nicotine on a continuous basis, whether this is in the form of a nicotine patch or an E-Cigarette.

Researchers feeling that the E-Cigarette is the answer to helping a smoker quit smoking, found that perhaps smokers are fitting in their traditional cigarettes with the E-Cigarette, and not making as much progress at kicking the nicotine habit then originally thought.

Many feel that the E-Cigarette is another way to get people hooked on another version of the traditional cigarette. The E-Cigarette allows for inhalation of pure nicotine. Researchers are not entirely sure what kind of damage this may do the lungs down the road. The E-Cigarette allows nicotine to be inhaled directly into the lungs. Thus the smoker must also exhale. Can we say that the E-Cigarette is truly smokeless? A nicotine patch will slowly release nicotine into the body through the skin.

While E-Cigarettes are supposed to help one decrease introduction of nicotine into the body, they have ingredients that are not healthy. Some unhealthy chemicals were found in the E-Cigarette such as some chemicals found in anti-freeze and some carcinogens. This does not make this particular NRT sound like a healthy option.

Some people are reporting at least six side effects to the E-Cigarette. While E-Cigarettes are not odorless, they can have a pleasant odor depending on the choices of the smoker. These cigarettes come in flavors such as menthol, cherry or strawberry or the smoker can purchase an E-Cigarette with the traditional smell of cigarette smoke, or the smoker can purchase the ordorless E-Cig. If traditional cigarettes are banned in many places now due to surrounding smoke exhaled by the smoker then the E-Cigarette does not seem to hold much promise in the promotion of smokeless/odorless cigarettes.

Researchers say that at least with NRT’s you know what you are getting and the doses are very controlled. Smokers can rest assured that NRT’s are not going to cause cancer or cause unknown harm to the lungs. Researchers are not yet quite sure what damage, if any that the E-Cigarette could cause to the lungs.
