Something is better than nothing! This idiom came to my mind when I read about this news! It seems that the people in UK are getting hooked to this most recent innovation to satisfy his or her craving for a smoke…which apparently looks much healthier as well. This latest gadget gives a complete smoking sensation, but at the same time do not cause the harms which are associated with normal cigarettes. The Mini Electronic Cigarette simulates the entire process of smoking and it even feels like one is inhaling smoke. In fact, nothing actually burns, but due to some bizarre mechanism one can enjoy all the tactile sensations which he or she gets while smoking. However, the health risk is minimal as it has no tar, no carbon monoxide, and absolutely no cancer causing chemicals. This is really a clever and unique way to beat the ban on indoor smoking as well!
The small white stick, which looks just like a proper cigarette, contains a chamber that vaporizes pure liquid nicotine into a puff of steam. Nicotine is its only ingredient, unlike tobacco alternatives which contain over 4,000 chemicals and tar. The electric cigarette is battery powered (UK charger included), has a glowing red tip and even tastes like the real thing. The Mini cigarette cannot cause lung cancer also as it only contains nicotine.
This is indeed a laudable novelty item to hit the gizmo market because it will really be a boon to those who are well aware of the killing effects of cigarette smoking, but are unable to kick the butt! Even the environment is spared of the harmful effects of carbon emission and associated hazards. Only thing I am apprehensive about is the price! It is quite expensive at 28.95 pounds for a complete starter kit, and far beyond the reach of middle class citizens of our country. But, at least we can take a queue from this and try to imbibe the thought to reduce the ominous effects of cigarette smoking in India.
