Are electronic cigarettes safe to use?

This question is straightforward enough; however, the answer is not. Before these questions can be answered, there needs to be a few understandings about electronic cigarettes.

First off, if you are a non smoker, please, please, do not introduce nicotine into your system by using electronic cigarettes with nicotine. You will be inhaling something beside the air your body needs. Do not start! Nicotine is one of the most addictive substances in the world. MistHub does not encourage nor recommend using e-cigarettes for non-smokers, underage users, or pregnant women. We encourage smokers who have tried unsuccessfully to quit to look at e-cigs as another option. Most smokers understand the deadly risks involved with such a unhealthy habit.

While anything containing nicotine cannot be called 100% safe, evidence from numerous studies strongly suggests that they are magnitudes safer than tobacco cigarettes. Harm reduction experts can point to research supporting that switching from cigarettes to a smoke-free product will reduce health risks to less than 1% of smoking traditional cigarettes – nearly the same as non-smokers. For tobacco harm reduction health professionals, it is misleading and irresponsible for public health officials to tell smokers that smokeless products, such as e-cigarettes, are “not a safe alternative to smoking” simply because they are “only” 99% safer and not 100% safe.

The great feature about e-cigs is that they offer a way to give smokers what they need minus the thousands (yes thousands) of chemicals that are present in tobacco. You will need to decide what is least harmful to your health.

Ecigs should be used as an alternate to smoking cigarettes and to reduce tobacco harm. We’ve all the TV commercials showing the harmful effects of smoking and most of us know that the problem of tobacco addiction needs to be looked at in an entirely different way. We cannot keep trying the same quit smoking tactics over and over if they do not work.

Smokers have been marketed and sold an addictive product for many generations, giving them no chance of escape. Then they are sold products designed to combat the first problem. These quit smoking products are designed to help us quit smoking and should have a high number of successful results, right? WRONG!

It seems the dozens of variables must align at just the right time, in just the right way, for most smokers to quit smoking, All of which can crumble with just one cigarette. It is more than will power, it is the addiction to nicotine that makes it so hard to quit smoking.

Many of the stop smoking products out there offer less than 10% success rate short-term and offer no long-term solution to avoid relapse.

Nicotine is as about as dangerous as caffeine, and the ingredients in most USA made eliquids are FDA approved for common food and medical treatments. This helps support the general opinion that electronic cigarettes are the smartest alternative when compared to smoking.
