Electronic cigarettes, also called personal vaporizers, are devices that deliver an e-liquid solution in form of vapour, by inhalation. Liquids are made up of propylene glycol, vegetal glycerine, natural flavouring and may contain nicotine.
The vaporization process is carried out by a battery-powered heating element called “atomizer” or “coil”. The act of using an electronic cigarette is popularly referred to as “vaping”.
When vaping, you do not inhale smoke, but vapour; you do not burn tobacco, but heat a liquid; you are not exposed to a combustion, but to a vaporization.
Electronic cigarettes come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are designed for every type of user. Although there a hundreds of different suppliers to choose from, e-cigarettes typically fall into one of three main categories: mini, mid-size and mod.
For first-time users transitioning from tobacco cigarettes, minis provide the most natural and easy transition from smoking because they look and feel like traditional cigarettes. A mini (often referred to as a “cig-a-like”) is a small, lightweight option, providing users with a comfortable and discreet way to get their nicotine fix.
For intermediate users, mid-size models are the most popular choice since they’re still small (about the size of a cigar) and provide extended life and stronger vapour production over a cig-a-like.
Finally, advanced personal vaporizers (APV), or mods, provide users with the ultimate vaping experience. An APV will normally look like a fat tube reminiscent of a flashlight (a tube mod) or a box the size of a pack of cigarettes (a box mod). Unlike minis or mid-size designs that use a cylindrical, pre-packaged battery pack, mods typically use replaceable 3.7 volt lithium ion cells and incorporate functions you won’t find on other devices, i.e., variable voltage and / or wattage settings, full electronic control, digital readouts, larger tanks and so on.

Can e-cigs help me quit smoking?

While electronic cigarettes are not smoking cessation tools nor are they marketed that way, there may be anecdotal evidence that some people have reduced or eliminated use of traditional cigarettes by regularly using electronics cigarettes.
What is Tobacco Harm Reduction?
Tobacco harm reduction describes actions taken to lower the health risks associated with using tobacco or nicotine. A very important part of tobacco harm reduction is simply educating people about the risks of different sources of nicotine.
Are electronic cigarettes really safer than regular cigarettes?
We are uncertain as to how safe they are however there are several scientific studies suggesting that they are safer than smoking cigarettes.
What is certain is that traditional cigarettes kill 6 million people every year
You keep talking about providing a less harmful source of nicotine. But isn't nicotine itself very bad for you?
No, it's not.
The effects of nicotine itself are similar to that other popular drug, caffeine. There is no evidence that nicotine causes any substantial risk for cancer, and the research shows that the risk for cardiovascular disease is minimal.
The confusion about nicotine comes from anti-smoking activists talking about nicotine and smoking as if they were the same. While it is true that people smoke mostly because of nicotine; nicotine users die mostly because of the smoke. Neither nicotine nor coffee are completely benign (in particular, both cause a short-term increase in your blood pressure and pulse rate when you use them, which could affect your health).
A lot of evidence shows that coffee drinking causes very little health risk. Studying nicotine is a bit harder, because most nicotine users smoke, and the smoking is quite bad for you. But there is some good evidence: If nicotine were very bad for you then smokeless tobacco, which provides nicotine, would be very bad for you. That is not the case.
Though nicotine is relatively safe for most individuals, it may have a negative effect on fetal development and as such should be avoided during pregnancy.
Do e-cigarettes cause cancer just like regular cigarettes?
The USFDA discovered trace amounts of tobacco-specific nitrosamines in e-cigarettes, which are known to cause cancer with high exposure. The amounts found were far too low to be definitively labelled as cancer-causing.
An e-cigarette contains nearly the same trace levels of nitrosamines as the FDA-approved nicotine patch and about 1,300 times less nitrosamines than a traditional cigarette.
