The smoking ban has been in force in the UK for several years now and it’s really changed pubs, clubs and bars. Non smokers would definitely say for the better. Social attitudes towards smokers have hardened in recent years and people are fiercely protective of their newly won smoke free spaces. It doesn’t look like the law will change any time soon. There’s no going back.
But what about smokers? Are they destined to huddle outside in the cold and the rain forever more? Well if they continue to smoke traditional cigarettes then the answer is a resounding yes. However, manufacturers are responding to this new social landscape with different products. Products that allows smokers to get their nicotine hit in a less harmful way that doesn’t impact on anyone else around them.
The electronic cigarette is starting to catch on. They are an increasingly common sight up and down the country. People can use them wherever they like because they don’t actually emit any harmful smoke, just water vapour. It’s the closest thing to smoking a regular cigarette, but without the health risks and unfortunate social impact. People can use them indoors which makes them hugely appealing. No longer are they banished to the back of the office or outside the pub to enjoy a smoke. It’s a much civilised way to enjoy nicotine.
An e cigarette could be the answer for smokers who are starting to feel marginalised. They respect the health and well being of their non smoking friends and colleagues, but they still want to enjoy their habit. This is the perfect compromise for everyone. With the expense and restrictions that now surround cigarettes it’s time for a change. One that saves money and allows people to “smoke” inside again. This is the perfect solution for fed up smokers.
