Let’s Talk  E Cigarettes

July 26, 2017

 

What are e- cigarettes?  E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices that can look like a real cigarette or pen. Some with refillable tanks look a bit different. There are hundreds of brands, and they're sometimes marketed as a way to get your nicotine fix without the danger of cigarettes.

They all work the same basic way:

They have containers filled with liquid that's usually made of nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals.

A heating device turns the liquid into vapor that you inhale when you take a drag.

They all work the same basic way:

  • They have containers filled with liquid that's usually made of nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals.

  • A heating device turns the liquid into vapor that you inhale when you take a drag.

They allegedly offer all the fun of typical cigarettes without any of the dangers. E-cigs use a small, heated coil to vaporize a nicotine-laced solution into an aerosol mist. By inhaling the mist, users enjoy the same satisfaction they would get from an ordinary cigarette but do not expose themselves to tobacco, which turns into cancer-causing tar when it is burned. Such products free smokers from huddling in the cold or rain and, in many places, from ordinances that forbid smoking in public places.

Using an e-cig is called "vaping."
