Electronic Cigarettes vs. Traditional Cigarettes In recent years electronic cigarettes have become increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. Unlike other initiatives to replace the smoking habit, electronic cigarettes do so on a like-for-like basis. Not only do users satisfy their body’s nicotine craving but they also have something to hold and inhale from just as they would when smoking a traditional cigarette. Electronic cigarettes therefore satisfy a number of different habits associated with smoking and as a result increase the chances of success when it comes to transitioning away from tobacco smoking. However, the benefits of electronic cigarettes do not end there. The habit of smoking tobacco is a significant drain on finances with only the possibility of cigarettes gaining in price in the future. It is estimated that Viking Ecigs, a leading brand in the electronic cigarette market, have the potential to save the smoker 80% of the money spent on tobacco cigarettes. This is largely due to the fact that E-cigs are refillable using a specialist E-liquid which is available in a number of different flavours. It is therefore estimated that the total cost of smoking the equivalent of 20 cigarettes is 89p. This makes E-cigs significantly less expensive than even the cheapest brand of tobacco cigarettes.

The health benefits of smoking electronic cigarette alternatives have not been fully scientifically established as the research simply has not been carried out to date. However, what is a fact is that electronic cigarettes do not contain the 4,000 plus chemicals, poisons, toxins and carcinogens that are present in tobacco smoke. Specifically, they do not contain tobacco or tar which are some of the most harmful substances found in traditional cigarettes. Therefore, smokers do not suffer from the associated odour that often ligers on the breath and the clothing. The use of electronic cigarettes is also kinder on those around the smoker. Passive smoking is a significant killer each and every year, affecting those who do not smoke themselves but who are exposed to tobacco smoke. The fact that E-cigs do not contain the 4,000 plus chemicals found in tobacco smoke is not only beneficial for the smoker’s health but for the heath of those around them. What is more, electronic cigarettes eliminate the bad odour so often found on breath, property and clothing, ensuring that loved ones do not have to suffer for the smoker’s habit.


It is no longer a matter of debate whether smoking has adverse health effects, both on the smoker and on those around the smoker. The facts are that smoking kills thousands of people each and every year and passive smoking kills a substantial number of people in addition. Tobacco smoking has the potential to cripple families, whether through illness, death or poverty. By transitioning to electronic cigarettes smokers can protect themselves, their families and their friends. Families would no longer have to face the constant worry of losing their loved one to lung cancer or of becoming destitute in the course of funding the habit.
