Tidak ada yang bilang kalo merokok itu baik, namun setiap perokok akan memiliki alasan masing-masing apabila ditanya mengapa merokok ? saya termasuk bukan contoh yang baik, merokok dari mulai selesai SMK (kata orang sudah bisa cari duit sendiri) padahal semasa sekolah pun ya curi-curi waktu dan kesempatan. Pergaulan, itulah yang menjadi sebab sehingga sampai saat ini sugestinya cukup besar dan cukup sulit untuk berhenti.
Ok langsung saja nih, E-Cigarettes atau rokok elektronik. Dari namanya sudah jelas, rokok yang tidak seperti pada umumnya. Saat ini saya coba salah satu merek yaitu E-HealthCigarettes. Ada 4 bagian utama yaitu Cartridge, Atomizer, Batery dan Lampu Indikator.
Pertama coba memang agak kaget juga, karena memang seperti rokok pada umumnya. Cuma perbedaannya kita tidak perlu lagi api dan otomatis tidak perlu asbak karena tidak ada abu rokoknya :)
Selain itu, berdasarkan informasi dari websitenya Cartridge (filter rokok pada umumnya) memiliki berbagai rasa mulai dari Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate, Cherry, Coffee, Apple, Banana, Mint, Cola dan Lemon. Kadar Nikotin pun bisa dipilih atau bahkan Zero Nicotine.
Belum terbiasa, itulah kesan pertama. Enak ? ya gitu deh .. terbiasa dengan rokok mild sedangkan E-HealthCigarettes menggunakan standar taste marlboro.
Segitu aja ah nanti dikira iklan, padahal cuma share info saja he .. dengan harapan sih bisa berhenti merokok sehingga bisa nabung lebih banyak lagi. Kalau dihitung-hitung 1 hari 10ribu kalo sebulan 300rb, kan kalo orang mikir bisa ditabung buat naik Haji :) amiin ..
Dengan E-HealthCigarettes bisa ngirit kali ya, 25rb dapet 10 Cartridge dan masing2 Cartridge bisa sampai 200 hisap.
Informasi aslinya saya copas dari sitenya :

7. Do I need a lighter?
There is no need for a lighter or matches with E-cigarettes.
8. What advantages of use E-cigarette?
Smokers know that traditional smoking is harmful to their health, yet, for some, it is a relaxing or a social experience they are not ready to give up completely. Beyond addiction to nicotine, there are rituals many smokers enjoy that delay their quest to seek ways to stop. Modern technology has brought this new innovation to make our lives just a little easier. Possibly one of the greatest new discoveries is that of the e-cigarette.
The e-cigarette is basically a device that looks like a cigarette, delivers ‘smoke’ and nicotine, and allows the smoker to continue to enjoy the smoking experience. So if the smoker is still smoking, how can there be advantages?
To begin with, because the e-cigarette is electric, it runs on batteries. This means no lighters, no matches, and no actual flame. At the end of most e-cigarettes is a small light that glows when taking a puff. If you are to drop it or put it down, there is no fire to catch anything alight. Batteries give three advantages; There is no flame so fires are less likely to occur, The consumer will no longer need to purchase lighter fluid, lighters or matches, making for much less pollution. And the batteries are rechargeable, also adding to less waste.
The smoke emitted from an e cigarette is not really smoke but just a vapor. It lasts just long enough to give the appearance of being smoke, but quickly disappears into thin air. There is no lingering cloud of smoke or second-hand smoke. Since there is no smoke, the smell does not permeate clothing ,hair, and your surroundings or home like real smoke does.
No second-hand smoke makes the use of electronic smoking devices safe around friends and family. In fact anywhere! The lack of saturating or offensive odors and no dangerous emissions make our brand of e-cigarettes sociably friendly.
A cartridge for the e-cigarette can last the equivalent of 8-10 conventional cigarettes. When comparing waste left behind from smoking, this cartridge uses far less resources than the production and waste left from even one conventional cigarette. Instead of as many as 10 cigarette butts and empty boxes, there is one small cartridge and mouthpiece. This makes for savings in personal space when traveling. Gas is saved in the transport of product refills. And landfill pollution has just been greatly reduced.
While the cost of tax on tobacco increases, the cartridges used with smoking an e-cigarette are not subject to those taxes. E-cigarettes can cut the cost of smoking in half or more. In addition, patches and other quit smoking medications can be just as expensive as cigarettes. While the e-cigarette has not been proven to be an official smoking cessation device, it does provide a much healthier alternative to smoking without the side effects caused by the patch and medicines. A smoker can cut their smoking costs in half and reduce the risks of tobacco smoking by avoiding those 4000 toxins found in regular cigarettes.
Finally, because e-cigarettes are not considered smoking, they are legal in more places. This means you can use the device in some restaurants, hospitals, airports, and so many other places where it is unacceptable to smoke. This alone could be the biggest advantage to a smoker. Many apartments and rentals require non-smoking tenants. Users of e-cigarettes are not considered smokers.
These advantages are just the beginning. Perhaps with research, e-smoking can eventually be used as a successful replacement for conventional cigarettes, and lead to permanent nicotine reduction for those wishing to do so in the future. For now, it is definitely something for every smoker to consider as a better, healthier way to smoke, and still be a non-smoker! – What a concept!!
