A regular cigarette can be defined as an object which is laden with tobacco as well as several other harmful products including high levels of nicotine. It also contains thousands of highly toxic chemicals. When a smoker ignites a cigarette with the aid of a match, he/she is able to officially smoke a cigarette. Smoking a cigarette is undoubtedly an act which can well be compared to “getting a high” in the smoker’s vocabulary. This act can also be termed as substance abuse. While smoking cigarettes was considered an act which established you as being a “man” (pun intended), the fact remains that nowadays, more and more smoking enthusiasts have started to quit smoking cigarettes for the very simple reason that they cause severe harm to the overall health of the smoker as well as the innocent passive smoker.

One of the biggest reasons why people are quitting cigarette smoking is because regular cigarettes are laden with high amounts of tobacco. It is a well known fact that tobacco is a silent killer and is responsible for millions of deaths the world over on an annual basis. This is one of the main reasons why smokers prefer to quit smoking regular cigarettes. Apparently now, smokers have started to take good care of their health. At the same time, it has also been noticed that a single cigarette contains over 4000 highly toxic chemicals. These chemicals are without a shadow of a doubt, the most damaging elements when it comes to discussing the human body. Undoubtedly, the human body is not tuned to accept such large amounts of chemicals and is therefore unable to counter their ill effects.

Bedsides causing harm to the smoker, a cigarette is also known to cause severe harm to the overall health of the innocent passive smoker. One of the main reasons why even non-smokers suffer from ill health effects is because they tend to inhale the highly offensive second hand smoke which in turn emits from a lit cigarette. It has also been clinically proven that the highly offensive second hand smoke which emits from regular cigarettes as well as from the lungs of smokers is even more harmful that what a smoker initially inhales while smoking a cigarette. This is one of the main reasons why even innocent passive smokers, who have yet to smoke a single cigarette, suffer from the same ailments which tend to affect chain smokers.

Another reason why smokers are quitting tobacco cigarettes is because ailments such as cancer, cardiac arrests as well as chronic respiratory tract infections are the common side effects that are considered symbolic to those people who are habitual of smoking cigarettes on a regular basis. In fact, it has also been noticed that people from all walks of lives prefer opting for electronic cigarettes as these devices are comparatively safer. In fact, an e cigarette is considered to be smokeless as well as free from tobacco. The high cost of regular cigarettes also proves to be a deterring factor and often forces smokers to quit smoking regular cigarettes and opt for electric cigarettes instead. When compared, an e cig costs one third the price of regular cigarettes. Hence, for the budget conscious smoker, an e cigarette proves to be the most suitable alternative.
