E Cigarette Guidelines

EIKNZv1WoAEooJ2.png%5CIf you smoke artificial cigarettes you are engaging in the new celebrity trend of Vaping. Apparently it's cool to look stupid in 2015. These types of Vaping devices deliver nicotine, it might of course be cheaper to buy some nicotine insecticide and just lick the lid.

You might die immediately but it's just a faster way to go than slowly poisoning yourself. In Queensland for good reasons liquid nicotine is illegal so the Vaping is performed using Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin Liquid.

Currently there will not appear to be any serious risks just throat and mouth inflammation, vomiting, nausea and cough. But think back or Google back:

In the fifties and early sixties cigarettes were considered good for you. Some brands even promoted lung health.

In the early seventies it was discovered that smoking caused stress and didn't solve it. Concerning this time researchers first announced that smoking causes cancer. It took a further eight years before legislators as well as the medical community agreed to the findings.

Decades later knowledgeable people will still be taking up smoking in spite of all the known information. The point of this historical background is the fact that Vaping is an unknown quantity. We know it causes mild problems, though the question is given the history of smoking, why on earth would you want to become just a potential statistic in the history of Vaping.

Within the words of Wikipedia currently the limited evidence suggests that e cigarettes are safer than traditional cigarettes, and they carry a risk of addiction for those taking up the habit.

So safer than cigarettes is like proclaiming that falling of a motor cycle at 100 mph is safer with a helmet on! Which brings me back to the title of Vaping, the new insane habit.

Think of all the fun entertaining things you may do rather than inhaling a combusted chemical into your lungs, electronic cigarette which your body must then find some way of addressing, hopefully, but then I wonder how many smokers have thought the exact same thing in the past.

Most of the Vaping devices that are promoted to me on the internet come from China, not perhaps the most dependable of chemical sources. Given the numbers of folks who are taking up e smoking I'm probably just banging my head on the wall trying to save a couple of people from themselves.
