Evolution is the process of weeding out the bad and bringing in the good, and surprisingly, cigarettes are no exception to that general rule of nature. Tobacco cigarettes went through their lifespan and their own way of changing throughout time: tobacco itself went from being smoked in pipes by the Native Americans, to being a very valuable, profitable crop, to being a regular accessory in the hands of men and women across the world, being flashed across movie screens and billboards all over the world. Of course, all things, good and bad, come to an end eventually, and finally, tobacco cigarettes met part of their evolution; many people attempted to weed out smoking cigarettes. Once medical facts began being publicized, smokers everywhere wanted to stop smoking so they could live a longer, healthier life.
But that wasn’t the end of cigarettes…at least in some form, that is. A new generation of cigarettes were born: electronic cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are a cleverly designed device that looks and functions just like a real cigarette, except it isn’t anywhere near as harmful as smoking tobacco cigarettes. After the harmful side effects of smoking became widely known, it became common to see e-cigarette kits being bought more often than real cigarettes. E-Cigarette kits come with all the major components; including the mouthpiece that looks like the cigarette, which holds a small atomizer that’s powered by a tiny battery. Electronic cigarettes deliver nicotine to the smoker by the smoker choosing the best e-liquid to put into the cigarette, and then it’s vaporized through the cigarette. A water vapor is emitted from the end of the cigarette, so from afar, it really can look like someone’s smoking. E-cigarette kits also usually include some of that particular company’s best e-liquid, allowing the smoker to find the flavor, strength, and taste they like.
Smokers have just as many choices when it comes to flavor of their cigarettes too. Part of tobacco cigarette’s evolution is the different tastes that became available over time, and electronic cigarettes deliver flavor through whatever the smoker thinks is the best e-liquid. One smoker may think the best e-liquid is full of nicotine, and another may think the best e-liquid is without nicotine, as it can be bought nicotine free, which is why some smokers use electronic cigarettes as a way to cut back on smoking.
If evolution is about survival of the fittest, then e-cigarettes may prove to be the fittest when compared to its predecessor.
