Statistics on smoking, and the best ways to quit 

Everyone know smoking is bad for you. But exactly how bad is it? In the US alone, it causes over 400,000 deaths per year. It's long been the #1 cause of preventable death in the world.

Most of these deaths are a result of cancer and heart diseases that result from smoking. Although lung cancer is the most common cancer that occurs among smokers, cigarettes can lead to all types of other cancers as well.

The two chief culprits in tobacco smoke that is harmful to you are tar and carbon monoxide. Nicotine is the addicting element in tobacco that makes it difficult to quite. Therefore, in order to quit, it's best to use an alternative that delivers nicotine, but doesn't have carbon monoxide or tar in it.

Nicotine gums and patches have long been a popular smoking cessation tool, but since 2008, there has been a new option: electronic cigarettes. Like the other smoking cessation tools, e-cigarettes deliver nicotine. What's more, they look and function more or less like regular cigarettes. Not everyone seems to like e-cigarettes, but many people have successfully switched over to using e-cigarettes instead of tobacco products.

 

One issue with e-cigarettes is that because they contain nicotine, you may just end up addicted to e-cigarettes instead of tobacco cigarettes. I personally believe this is much more preferable, however, since you will not be getting tar and carbon monoxide, which as we already know are the most harmful ingredients in cigarettes. Of course, there may be additional risks to e-cigarettes that we are not yet aware of, since it is still a relatively new product.

E-cigs have exploded in popularity, and there are many brands to choose from. Some popular ones include White Cloud, V2 Cigs, Blu Cigs, and Halo cigs, just to name a few. I like White Cloud myself, and you can obtain online coupons for these brands by searching online. For example, I use White Cloud e-cig coupons all the time to get discounts on my purchases. I wouldn't get too hung up on the brand in the beginning. Just pick one with a good reputation and buy a kit so you can try it out. Ideally, you should give up both cigarettes and e-cigarettes, but until you can do that, making the switch to ecigs should get you healthier and is therefore a good thing to transition to.
