Most smokers have a love – hate relationship with cigarettes. They are so bad, but oh so good! They make you feel great and later like trash. They are convenient but lead to plenty of mess and waste. Quitting seems like the only way to stop the problems, the only way to end the stream of toxins, and the high cost, but it’s just so hard. And even after most people quit, the allure is still so strong. Cravings can be monumental, and sometimes too easy not to give in to. In other words, cigarettes can be really hard to give up for good!
A recent study done by the University of South Florida sheds new light on this well known phenomena, and adds some statistics to what we already know. According to the data found, 90% of people who quit smoking will, or have relapsed at one point or another. Not surprising is it? Therefore, the vast majority of smokers have quit at some point or another, only to return to the nasty habit. The grip these things have is unquestionable, and truly hard to break!
It really leaves one to ponder, what if these smokers were using an alternative like electronic cigarettes? Would it be so hard for all of them? According to our users and many who have left us e-cig testimonials and written us letters telling about their experiences, e-cigarettes work. In fact, it’s pretty well known how e-cigarettes are putting the tobacco industry in a bind. They can ease the tension and really put a halt to those pesky cravings in a safe and familiar format. If you think about it, its only slightly different and the relief is all there. Without the smoke and tobacco.
If 90% of smokers have a relapse at one time or another, whether its momentary and they just need a random cigarette, or full blown getting right back to business with a 3 pack a day addiction, they really ought to give e-cigarettes a go. Hey, you’ll never know until you try!
