By far, the most popular way of consuming nicotine is by smoking cigarettes. Smoking leads to overdeaths in the country per year, and over 16 million people in the U.
More people die as a result of smoking than all deaths due to HIVvehicle accidents, murder, suicide, alcohol abuse, and drug abuse combined. Are e-cigarettes and vaporizers safe? In recent years, liquid nicotine has been touted as a less risky replacement for smoking cigarettes.
This can be delivered to the system in an electronic cigarette or vaporizer. These are known as electronic nicotine delivery systems ENDS. These battery-operated 'e-cigs' and 'vapes' atomize the liquid nicotine by applying heat but without the harmful, oxidative effects of burning.
Liquids are available in a range of strengths and flavors. Current evidence suggests that using liquid nicotine is a safer alternative to inhaling tobacco smoke, as nicotine in itself is not classified as carcinogenicor cancer-causing, by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
It may also help people that are trying to quit smoking mimic some of the addictive behaviors of cigarette use, such as raising the hand to the mouth or seeing smoke inhaled, that other types of nicotine replacement therapy NRT cannot imitate.
Liquid nicotine can help replicate these behaviors without the harmful effects of tobacco use. Any form of nicotine is highly addictive, so e-cigarettes and vaporizers remain unsuitable for young people and those who do not already smoke. Liquid nicotine can act as a gateway to cigarettes for those not already regularly taking in nicotine.
The use of e-cigarettes rose from 1. There are also other chemicals present in e-cigarette and vaporizer liquid that could be harmfuland these chemicals will be different in various brands, products, devices, and uses. Some products that are available online may also contain dangerous concentrations of nicotine.
While nicotine does not itself cause cancersome of the other substances in liquid nicotine may well contribute to it. For example, a flavoring called diacetyl, used in some e-liquids, is also associated with severe respiratory problems seen in workers at a factory that produces microwaveable popcorn, known as "popcorn lung.
However, as a relatively new technology, the full effects of liquid nicotine are not known, and caution is advised. Treatment The treatment of nicotine dependency is known as smoking cessation therapy.
It aims to reduce the urges to consume nicotine as well as the associated risks and health problems. Medications Drug treatment options for nicotine dependency include: Nicotine replacement therapy NRT: This is available in skin patches, nasal sprays, inhalers, and solutions that can be rubbed into the gums.
These replace part of the nicotine normally supplemented by smoking cigarettes and reduce the severity of urges and cravings. While NRT does not completely prevent withdrawal symptoms, a review advises that it can double the chances of quitting smoking long-term.
No single NRT product has been demonstrated as more effective than another. A range of NRT products are available for purchase online, including skin patcheslozengesand gum.
This was used in the first instance as anti-depressant medication.
However, it was then found to be useful in reducing nicotine cravings. It has a similar rate of effectiveness to NRT. The way it works is not yet understood. It can cause insomnia as a side effect in 30 to 40 percent of patients.
Bupropion carries an FDA "black-box" warning, as some anti-depressant drugs have been linked to suicidal thoughts and behavior. Varenicline, sold as Chantix: This medication partially triggers a certain receptor in the brain that usually responds only to nicotine.
It then blocks the receptor, preventing nicotine from doing the same. This reduces the urges a person experiences while quitting smoking. It may also reduce the satisfaction an individual gets from smoking, which in turn decreases the risk of a relapse.
It can cause mostly mild nausea in around 30 percent of people who pursue this course of treatment, but varenicline is normally well tolerated.
It has also demonstrated a stronger effect on nicotine dependency than bupropion.An e-cigarette is a long tube that usually resembles a cigarette, a cigar, a pipe, or a pen.
Most are reusable, with replaceable and refillable cartridges, but some are disposable. Misc thoughts, memories, proto-essays, musings, etc. And on that dread day, the Ineffable One will summon the artificers and makers of graven images, and He will command them to give life to their creations, and failing, they and their creations will be dedicated to the flames.
