Newest Alternatives to Smoking Cessation Programs
Ask anyone who has ever tried to quit smoking and failed, how difficult it is to “kick the habit”. Nicotine addiction is usually a primary reason for cravings, but most people will agree that the psychological addiction is typically harder to overcome.
Some people have found some success through the various drug treatments, nicotine patches, gum, and similar alternatives currently available. However, people can experience unpleasant side-effects, and these products do not address the psychological and behavioral mechanisms of addiction that make it difficult to maintain smoking cessation programs.
Cartomizers and e-cigarettes have become a popular choice for many. The battery operated atomizers produce a “smoke-like” vapor. There are many different available flavors which have a pleasant odor, but no harmful second-hand smoke. You can also gradually reduce the nicotine content in the juice. Vaping is also allowed in all restaurants and accepted at workplaces thanks to the legal efforts of Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli,
Electronic cigarettes are a healthier alternative over traditional cigarettes. However, you should buy only from select stores or online sites to guarantee the quality of your purchase. Essence or flavoring is pre-mixed in liquid, and each e-cig cartridge is good for 80-100 puffs, or 8 to 10 cigarettes. Starter kits range in price from $35 on up, and each $7 (10 ml) bottle of “juice” will last roughly a week. If you smoke an average of two pack daily, you are probably spending at least $8 a day or $56 a week. Even if you reduce your smoking in half, most smokers can save an average of $40 a week.
A carton containing 10 packs of 20 cigarettes costs from $30 to $70 Dollars depending on the taxes imposed by the state. A smoker who consumes one pack per day at a cost of $4.00 Dollars per pack, will spend approximately $1,460 Dollars per year. The cost is much higher when you consider the increased premiums for health and life insurance. In addition, each time that you stop to smoke, you are wasting approximately 4 minutes per cigarette.
