It has been the case for many years. The case has been put forward all the more loudly today. Cynical smokers, however, should be forgiven in thinking that the health authorities are thinking only of themselves and not the inevitable suffering that some smokers could go through one day should they contract lung cancer, strictly speaking an incurable disease and one of the most painful of its kind known to mankind.
Health authorities no longer wish to bear the brunt of the costs of treating a patient with lung disease. But, facing the facts, it is the tax dollars of smokers that is bearing these costs of treatment. This alone should be a motivation to attempt to give up smoking. But this is easier said than done. Ask any smoker and perhaps you could appreciate just how difficult it is to give up smoking. But then again, more than likely not if you are not a smoker.
Pharmaceutical companies have benefited mostly from the spurious means designed to aid smokers to give up smoking. This benefit is obvious. The reality is that giving up the addiction to nicotine is one of the most challenging practices known to mankind. Well, it is only known to those who are victims of the nasty and dangerous habit. What is not known too much among a majority of smokers is the less harmful practice of puffing on an e cigarette.
To fulfill that purpose, a dose of e juice is required. It leavens out the bitter taste of regular tobacco smoking g at least, given that there are so many choice flavors to choose from. It is less harmful than conventional smoking in the sense that far less nicotine is being consumed. There are now also products that contain no nicotine whatsoever.
