Insights: Transitioning to Electronic Cigarettes

Hon Lik will tell you – It’s not just nicotine which keeps smokers hooked on the habit, but also the ritual and the enjoyment of inhaling and blowing smoke. Whether a smoker is taking a break from work to spend 10 minutes smoking a cigarette outdoors, or enjoying an evening with friends and drinks on the patio, the end result is a relaxing, almost blissful, indulgent experience. Even some non-smokers can appreciate this relaxing vision. The Lord of The Rings film trilogy expresses this in a scene with hobbits and wizards blowing smoke rings and enjoying a happy moment together, and without question the entire audience understands this message.

While you will find vaping to be okay in most places, it is always wise to ask before you begin puffing away on your newfangled vapour friend.

Some are able to make a smooth transition to e-cigs, where cravings for the “real thing” are nonexistent. For many of these people, using electronic cigarettes is a natural upgrade – eliminating the tar and smell, instantly improving life. These benefits can help override whatever psychological need there is to smoke a tobacco cigarette.
