E cigs, short for electronic cigarettes, has taken the market by storm because of the novelty of the device and its beginnings as a way for tobacco smokers to wean themselves from cigarettes.
E cigs are cylindrical devices what contain a glycol liquid which is heated and atomized in order to produce a vapor that is then inhaled and exhaled to simulate the smoking process. A level of nicotine can be included and can be varied at to its strength. This has enabled people to taper down the nicotine in order to quit the addition to the substance.
Even if a person does not want to lower the nicotine level, the e cigs are deemed to be less corrosive as normal cigarettes because of the lack of cancer causing agents that are found in tobacco cigarettes. There are over 200 carcinogenic chemicals that are in cigarette smoke that have been proven to cause lung cancer. There is none of that in e cigs.
For an additional novelty, and a very popular one at that, is the ability to add different flavorings to the e cigs. Everything from fruit flavors to mint, menthol and chocolate make the electronic cigarette a very popular and enjoyable habit to form.
