Old habits die hard. I learned this quickly as I read over the some of the topics on a few of the pregnancy forums I view each day.
Several women were finding it hard to kick the habit of smoking during their pregnancy. They were celebrating going from two packs a day down to one. I was in complete shock. Not to be all judgmental, but how in the world can you smoke while you're pregnant? Would you let your baby/child smoke a cigarette? Nope! So what is the difference?
Before this post takes an ugly turn, let me get back to the real reason I'm writing today. I know that addiction comes in all forms (ask me about thrifting). I want to help you or someone you know kick the habit of smoking. I'm trying to get Ian to quit, or at least cut back on a few since we have a new baby on the way. I hate the smell of smoke-drenched clothing and breath. There is no way I want Kaden or Barvey around that. And I absolutely mean it!!
I was sent two NICOmate premium disposable electronic cigarettes, for Ian to try of course. He smokes a lot of cigarettes a day (from my perception), so I was hoping that this e-cig would at least curb his need for them.
Ian surprisingly asked to try them out. He's been checking out various brands and wanted to give them a shot. That was a great first step.
Okay. It looks real, but how does this work?
Do you recall as a child when you had a cold accompanied by a sore throat and your mother would put a vaporizer in your room to add moisture to the air as a means of reducing your cough and discomfort during sleep? How electronic cigarettes work is quite similar. An electronic cigarette (or e-cig) is made operable by three working parts:
- Cartridge - The cartridge resembles a cigarette butt and serves as the mouthpiece a well as a reservoir for the liquid nicotine.
- Atomizer - The atomizer vaporizes the liquid nicotine, and is equipped with a simple thread like metal netting used draw the liquid from the cartridge
- Battery - The electronic cigarette battery is a lithium-ion rechargeable battery and is the largest of the three components.
I must say, it was pretty cool to see the e-cig in action. It was almost like a toy. And the best part – there was no nasty smell accompanying it. If that's not incentive enough, here are a few more reasons why you should use eCigarettes:
I still think Ian needs a little more convincing and time to fully commit to this form of smoking. I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later. During this pregnancy, my sense of smell has been extremely sensitive. I nearly gag at the smell of cigarette smoke. I did before I was pregnant. It's just disgusting to me. Let's hope that Ian, and any of those pregnant mothers on the forums I visit, can kick this stinky habit.
