If you switch from cigarettes to e-cigs, you’ll be going tobacco-smoke free. But what exactly does that mean, and what benefits will it bring you?
E-cigarettes heat liquid into vapour. They don’t burn anything, so you don’t get tobacco smoke – or the smell it brings. As smokers know, cigarette smoke clings to clothes, hair and furniture – pretty much any fabric exposed to the smoke. It causes bad breath (halitosis) too.
E-cigarette vapour does not carry the offensive odour of cigarettes. And the vapour disappears before it can cling to you or your clothes – or cause any bad breath. The vapour you get from a blu e-cigarette does have an aroma, but it’s the smell of flavourings such as fruit and spearmint.
No tar or stains
Again, because they do not burn tobacco, e-cigarettes do not contain tar – the toxic chemical residue left behind from cigarettes. That’s why e-cigarettes do not have filters which attempt to catch the tar.
Tar is the brown substance left behind on the end of the cigarette filter. It stains smokers’ teeth and fingers brown and coats everything it touches brownish-yellow.
It’s not just tar that stains. Nicotine contained in cigarette smoke stains teeth and nails a yellow colour. The nicotine, propylene glycol and natural extracts contained in blu e-liquids do not discolour.
No heat or ash
Another advantage to e-cigs is they don’t produce ash which clogs up ashtrays and marks your clothes and furniture.
Also, squinting from the heat of cigarettes, and trying to keep smoke out your eyes, causes ‘crow’s feet’ wrinkling on the face around your eyes. Smokers are three times more likely to get these lines early. Tobacco smoke dries out skin too, and can give it a greyish tinge.*
The good stuff
So, e-cigarettes do not produce smoke, but they do recreate the things about cigarettes that smokers enjoy, such as the nicotine rush, throat hit, and having something to hold between your lips and fingers.
As well as the sensation of smoking, you’ll enjoy more flavours than cigarettes offer. If you like that taste of tobacco, no worries, we make that too.
