A recent study has found that eCigarettes are 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco and could be prescribed by the NHS to help England’s 8 million smokers kick their habit. So if you’re like us, you’re probably wondering, what the hell is an ecigarette? Bullshit News are here to help.
An eCigarette is what all the cool kids and “health conscious” are using to smoke these days. An eCiagarette which can also be referred to as a vaping device or box mod consists of a battery, a tank and an atomizer. The tank contains nicotine in a solution of either Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin combined with some additional flavoring. The atomizer or coil contains a wick usually made of cotton that absorbs the liquid from the tank. When you suck on the device the atomizer or coil heats up and the eliquid on the wick evaporates giving you a direct hit of nicotine combined with some flavoring without any of the additional harmful chemicals found in regular cigarettes that increase the risk of cancer, lung disease and stroke.
With flavors such as pizza, ice-cream, cookies and mountain dew, it’s no surprise that there has been in an increase in the number of people “vaping”. What’s interesting though is that the report found a direct correlation between the rise in ecigarette use and a decrease in smoking. It goes on to explain that ecigarettes are now the most popular method people are using to quit smoking and that they pose no risk of nicotine poisoning when used appropriately. The reason that ecigarettes have become such a popular way to help people quit is because you can slowly taper down the amount of nicotine you are getting. Every few weeks you can lower the amount of nicotine you get until you are only smoking or “vaping” flavored water vapor. We can’t help but feel like a lot of people will taper off the nicotine but continue to vape cookie flavored vapor though. still, It’s far safer than smoking, so even if people are walking around smoking one of the thousands of available flavors out there, at least it will be reducing the number of smoking related diseases. The millions of pounds saved by this reduction can then be spent on infrastructure or education instead which we are all for!
Once ecigarettes are classified as regulated medical products towards the end of 2016 the NHS will begin giving out vaping starter kits to smokers. Unfortunately the starter kits will only contain tobacco flavored ejuice so you will have to buy some of the crazy flavors on your own dime. The kits will contain either a rebuildable dripping atomizer (RDA) or a rebuildable tank atomizer (RTA). The Rebuildable tank atomizer is expected to be more popular as you simply fill a tank with eliquid and go about your day, much like a regular cigarette.
The review goes on to say that ecigarettes should not be treated the same as standard cigarettes and should be allowed in prisons and hospitals which we aren’t sure we agree with. There is a trend amongst vapers called cloud chasing where the aim is to make the biggest cloud of vapor possible. I may be wrong, but I’m pretty sure most people in hospital don’t want to have to lie in a room with someone vaping pizza flavored vapor all day!
I’m not sure about you, but I think I would lose my mind if I wanted to smoke only to find that my cigarette was out of battery!
