Cigarettes create so many negative impacts in one’s health and being. Some says it’s hard to quit smoking but benefits of quitting are far more worth it than the temporary satisfaction it brings.
Physical and psychological addiction to cigarettes is because of the substance called nicotine. Even though it’s addictive, it does not cause the smoking related disease but the thousands of chemicals found in a tobacco. That is why Nicotine Replacement Therapy was introduced as part of smoking cessation. There are drugs and devices available to help with the plan. One of them is the so called electronic cigarette. The question is how does it work?

Electronic cigarette is becoming popular nowadays for number of reasons. E-cig, E-cigarette or vapor cigarette are the other names of electronic cigarette. It basically simulates the tobacco smoking.
The vital components of electronic cigarettes are plastic cartridge, atomizer and battery. The cartridge is use as the mouthpiece and a container for the liquid. Followed after the cartridge is the atomizer which is the heating element. The battery is the longest part of the e-cigarette and responsible in triggering the atomizer. Once e-cigarette is puffed, the heating starts due to the availability of the airflow sensor in the battery causing the liquid to vaporize. Some newer brands of e-cigarettes consist of two parts, the battery and the cartomizer. It is a cartridge and an atomizer together. A cartomizer holds more liquid than the atomizer. It also resolves the issue of the atomizer burning up after few refills since the cartomizer can hold as much as 1.6 ml of the liquid. Example of this brand is Green Smoke.
Green Smoke is one of the electronic cigarettes which offer wide variety of choices. They have electronic cigarettes with nicotine and without nicotine. The vapor of the electronic cigarettes by Green Smoke contains USP Grade propylene glycol, USP Grade vegetable gylcerin, nicotine and flavorings. Some components are USP Grade meaning to say they are approved by FDA and are safe to use. Nicotine is highly addictive and is not recommended for non-smokers that is why they are offering their zero nicotine electronic cigarettes.
Green smoke uses flavoured liquid in the cartridge giving a fresh and clean feeling. One new cartomizer is equivalent to 30 regular tobaccos. It will remain fresh for two weeks. They have two kinds of batteries, the long and the short one. The long battery can lasts up to 400 puffs which is equivalent to 33 regular tobaccos. Re-charging long battery may take 5 to 6 hours. The short battery on the other hand can lasts up to 300 puffs which is equivalent to 25 regular tobaccos. Re-charging short battery may take 4 to 5 hours.
