Ways Vaping Can Help You Live Better

feeling-good-living-betterOf all the reasons people make the decision to leave tobacco behind in favor of the electronic smoking option, having a better quality of life is probably the best of them all. Have you considered all of the ways that smoking brings you down? Whether it’s the insane expense, the horrid smell, or the stigma attached to you just for being a smoker, these little things add up big time, and sometimes you don’t realize how annoying it is until they’re gone. So if you need a reason to make the switch, here are some of the amazing ways e-smoking can help you live better. How you spend your days is essentially how you spend your life; make everyday wonderful without smoke!

-A Cleaner Life

Smoke is filthy, smelly, and its tar accumulates on everything it comes into contact with; whether it’s your Dupioni silk drapes, or your lungs, it is nothing good. When you halt the smoke and tobacco, you halt the dirty aspects too. Vapor is clean, odorless, and does not come with the baggage of tar. Vapers who vape indoors have reported no negative side effects!

-Freedom

When you switch to vaping, you get so many freedoms! Like freedom from the endless butts, the freedom to vape in so many more places than previously welcome, the freedom from constantly worrying about running out of cigarettes, the freedom from worrying about whether you smell bad, if your breath is unpleasant, or if others will look down on you because of your habit.

-Modern Methods for Modern Times

Vaping is utterly modern. It’s a very tech thing, allowing you all the digital control you’ve come to expect in today’s day and age. Vaping can be easily integrated into daily life so easily, and it cuts out so many of the annoying aspects of smoking. Being able to charge batteries, often from your digital devices, having a variety of accessories that can take your e-cigs anywhere with you, and being able to lessen your carbon footprint by using reusable, non-polluting e-cigs just fits modern life so much better than traditional cigarettes!

How to Choose an E-Cigarette Brand

eversmoke-boxWith so many brands out there, we totally understand the overwhelming feeling that can come over you when trying to decide on one. Choosing a starter kit can be tricky, but choosing a brand can be even trickier, and more important! Well, one of the best things about there being such a vast selection in brands in this market is that there is sure to be at least one that fits your needs specifically.

Here are some things to ponder when narrowing down the options, as finding the right brand can mean succeeding over hightailing it back to tobacco, which I’m sure you’d rather not do!

  1. Make a list of brands you’re considering, and which ones seem to fit your needs. If you haven’t even got an idea about brands, we totally suggest EverSmoke. This is an awesome starting point for smokers looking for great quality and simplicity when switching. There’s no lack of style with this brand, and you will get a solid alternative cigarette here.

  2. Decide what type of device you want, e-cigarette or vaporizer. Vaporizers are more high-tech, more advanced, and take a little more effort to use and understand. E-cigs are designed to be as similar to traditional cigarettes as possible, which makes them the top choice for many smokers who want to go tobacco-free, smoke-free, and prefer less technology.

  3. Consider flavors. All brands offer different options and choices here, regardless of the format you’re going after. With e-cigs, you’ll be using disposable cartridges, so you won’t be filling the liquids yourself. In which case, EverSmoke offers 10 different flavors to choose from, so you’ll surely find at least a couple that resonate with you.

  4. Nicotine strength: find a brand that has what you’re looking for, and if you don’t know what you’re looking for, choose a brand that has a large selection. It can vary from brand to brand, and some don’t offer 0mg, some don’t go higher than 16mg, and some have such lousy quality regardless of what they have labeled, you can’t trust the nicotine to do its thing.

  5. Research each brand when it comes to such matters as refund policy, warranties, and how good they are about customer service. Things happen, and getting stuck with products you don’t want, or ending up with things that stop working without the company backing up your purchases can make you feel hopeless. Scope out each brand’s social media pages and look out for online reviews to see what other customers have had to say. A good reputation accounts for a whole lot.

Choosing an e-cigarette brand is the first step to embarking on this amazing lifestyle that can avail so much freedom, savings, and fun.

What Awaits You When Switching to E-Cigarettes

Switch to E-CigsAfraid to make the switch to vaping? Scared to let go of your past dependence in exchange for a better way to enjoy your daily life, and nicotine without the baggage? Here are some of our favorite reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes, in case you need a reminder. Millions of vapers have made the switch, and haven’t looked back. What are you waiting for?

-A Tobacco-Free Body: Being free from tobacco benefits nearly every facet of your health, and switching to an alternative method of smoking that does not involve tobacco is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

-A Smoke-Free Home: The tar from tobacco cigarettes is sticky, gooey, and has the capacity to leave behind nasty yellow stains on the teeth, hands, and practically anything it comes into contact with over an extended period of time. In the home, it can stain your walls, carpets, upholsteries, and nearly anything porous, leaving behind a tell-tale discoloration, as well as a musty, funky smell. Vaping, on the hand doesn’t!

-Tastier Meals: Cigarette smoke destroys your taste buds and your sense of smell, the two components that are responsible for your ability to taste things. Once you stop smoking, your sense of taste begins to recover. This is one of the best parts of switching to vaping.

-A More Dazzling Smile: Cigarettes can do a number on your oral health, and destroy your teeth, making your smile atrocious. Definitely not something to smile about.

-More Money in Your Wallet: Everyone needs more, and vaping is much more cost effective.

-Peace of Mind: Knowing you aren’t part of the global pollution problem is a great thing, even if you are of the responsible sort and dispose of your cigarette butts properly. Tobacco cigarettes are the world’s most polluted item; it’s nice to know you aren’t adding to the problem.

-Smelling Fresh and Clean: Smelling like you’ve been in a bar all night isn’t exactly a sexy smell! Vapers love carrying the scent of fresh air with them everywhere they go, knowing no one will be put off by their smoky smell.

So if you are still smoking cigarettes, why not give e-cigs a try? Look at all the things you’ve got to lose, and how much you have to gain!

E-Cigarettes & Heat: What You Need to Know

EverSmoke Batteries and HeatHeat and e-cigarettes can make for a bad situation. Your e-cigarette batteries are your lifeline to vaping. Without them, you obviously won’t get very far, and if they are damaged or compromised, you’re out of luck if you don’t have backup. The majority of the batteries used in vaping devices are lithium ion, and they need specific conditions to perform optimally, especially in regards to temperature extremes.

Ideally, the temperatures your batteries are kept at should never dip below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, or rise above 86 degrees. There is a whole range of things that can go wrong, from lesser effectiveness, to the battery totally failing. In fact, the most common cause of electronic cigarette battery issues can be attributed to overheating. Here are some of the signs your battery may exhibit if it has had an overexposure to too hot temperatures:

  • Expanded body
  • Has stopped working
  • Bubbles
  • Signs of melting
  • Bulging
  • Smoking (not vaping)
  • Contracts
  • Sparks
  • Flames
  • In extremely rare circumstances, it can become explosive
  • And shows other signs of damage

And it’s not just the heat that is a problem. Extreme cold can cause the internal parts of an electronic cigarette battery to expand, which can cause irreparable damage.

It has long been documented that lithium ion batteries can become explosive when subjected to temperatures above 100 F in a multitude of devices, including laptops and cellphones. While this is extremely rare, precautions should be taken to protect both yourself and your batteries.

Considering all that these tiny devices provide you with, and how little effort it takes to truly safeguard them, it pays to take the extra steps if you are faced with temperature extremes. Proper and attentive care will give you the best performance out of your e-cigarette batteries, and will ensure that your investment yields the best return, while ensuring your safety. Take care of them, and they’ll surely take care of you!

Electronic Cigarettes and the Environment

cigarettes-on-beach-sizedJust by switching to electronic cigarettes, smokers can do the environment a great service. Traditional cigarettes, by and large, are the single most polluted item on earth. Imagine, of all the trash that can be found in the global environment, the majority can be traced to a single source. That’s a lot of trash and a lot of cigarettes smoked. Whether smokers just choose to be ignorant when carelessly flicking their butts, or they assume that because they feel like paper they will easily biodegrade, cigarette butts are a nuisance anywhere they are discarded outside of a trash bin. Here’s a look at the ways e-cigarettes help the earth, because if there’s one place cigarette butts do not belong, it’s the environment.

-They are reusable. Having a reusable product means overall less gets consumed. You put a device into rotation, and you don’t produce much trash. And that includes trash that so often ends up not in a receptacle.

-Being reusable also means that there is a break in the endless cycle of traditional cigarettes and the constant stream of trash. A pack a day contributes 20 cigarette butts a day. Or 140 weekly, per person, whichever way they get discarded. It’s a ton of trash!

-E-Liquid bottles, made of plastic or glass, can easily be recycled. E-liquid is a very economic option for smokers, and it also has the benefit of being better on the environment than traditional cigarettes.

-E-cigarette cartridges last the equivalent of 20 cigarettes, and they are not so (thoughtlessly) easy to toss on the ground after use. When users change them, they are typically tossed in the trash due to their size and weight, unlike traditional cigarettes.

-Because they are less likely to be irresponsibly discarded, e-cigarettes and cartridges run less of a risk ending up a problem to wildlife. Unlike traditional cigarettes, which too often get consumed by birds and fish, e-cigarettes are less likely to get tossed into their environments and mistaken for food.

While the concept of perfectly “green” e-cigarette technology has yet to be developed, when it comes to smoking, electronic cigarettes are clearly the more responsible option. Traditional cigarettes are problematic on so many levels, and when you have the availability and option of vaping, with cleaner, more earth-friendly devices, there is no reason to use tobacco any longer!

The War on E-Cigs

7fe32cb6d9a2459c08c20a8f6c5f15adPropaganda, half truths, twisting of scientific studies, and misreporting are running heavily rampant these days when it comes to e-cigarette research and usage. With recent reports, such as the one published by the New England Journal of Medicine that went viral through the media a few weeks back, followed by the state of California’s public health department running a statement that e-cigarettes should not be used due to their production of “chemicals” and that they can be viewed as a gateway to smoking tobacco, it seems that there is an unusual amount of negative information swirling, based on speculation, aimed at discouraging users from vaping.

What these reports fail to do, all the while playing up hype and sensation, is focus on the positives electronic cigarettes have accomplished in a short amount of time.

Smokers don’t turn to electronic smoking to gain a new habit. They do not enter the world of smoking as a result, either. They look to these products as a means of transitioning away from traditional cigarettes, as with vaping they have more control, more options, and can enjoy the experience of smoking without involving any tobacco.

“It is stunning that a public agency entrusted with the health of the population of California would promote such a one-sided, scientifically impoverished document” remarked Sally Satel, who disbunked much of the speculation and false reports in a piece for Forbes. Also noteworthy, is that even the newly appointed Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy has stated that there is a “desperate need for clarity” when it comes to electronic cigarettes. Obviously a blatantly negative, harmful label cannot be placed on e-cigarettes, so the media really needs to halt their efforts in doing so!

So, what is the deal? Why is the anti-smoking coalition so drastically anti-e-cigarette? Is it because electronic cigarettes make the idea of stopping tobacco usage too easy? Too simple? Too enjoyable? Is it the concept of an alternative, similar yet different, too hard to grasp because there should not be a pleasurable option? Whatever the reasoning may be, it’s time for these “public health experts” to take a hard look at the reality of e-cigarettes, and see the benefits right before their eyes. Instead of focusing on the idea of e-cigarettes being a scary endeavor out to tempt young people into the world of smoking cigarettes, they should be compounding their efforts into lobbying for e-cigarette regulations that guarantee product quality and purity. As this industry is in its infancy, only the future will tell, however one thing we are certain of, is that electronic cigarettes are not going anywhere!

Smoking and Oral Health: No Kissing Matter

tobacco and oral healthSmiles, eating, tasting, kissing, and talking: they are all reliant upon your mouth and your oral health. Poor oral health can contribute to all kinds of other bodily ailments, and having compromised oral health can certainly impede your ability to enjoy all the many things your mouth enables you to have. Imagine not being able to taste your favorite foods, or kiss your lover, or smile big and beautiful when the emotion takes you. Suffice it to say, you need your mouth, and you need it to be in good shape.

One of the best ways to disrupt the balance of health in your mouth is by smoking tobacco cigarettes. And yes, you’re probably fully aware that tobacco causes big trouble, but are you in the know of all the ways smoking is bad for your oral health?

If you smoke cigarettes, here is a breakdown of what you are playing with. While you may not have experienced any of these issues, just being a tobacco smoker puts you in contention for them! Want to steer clear? Drop the tobacco and switch to vaping; tobacco is not worth putting your mouth on!

Chronic Bad Breath

Smoking dries your mouth out, compounding the naturally found bacteria, enabling them to create a rather foul odor. Smoking also leaves behind disgusting particles, and they don’t smell good. Add in the fact that a vitamin C deficiency is a very common cause of bad breath, and nicotine has the known side effect of causing odors of the mouth. Smoking, very simply, and for a variety of reasons, can make your breath reek. No one wants to kiss a funky mouth.

Gums

Your gums are very susceptible to smoking damage. ‘White gums’ is among the most common issue, and this can be indicative of conditions as serious as oral cancer, gum recessions, and bone detachment.

Taste and Smell Loss

Loss of your sense of smell is one of the first things you lose when you start smoking. Next up is the loss of tasting, as the palate is closely connected to the sense of smell. Say bye-bye to your ability to taste deliciousness if you opt for tobacco. Interestingly, upon stopping their usage of tobacco products, users begin to realize how compromised their sense of taste has become!

Scary, right?! Makes you want to switch, ASAP, huh? Luckily, switching to vaping is super simple to do, and can offer a much more comfortable quality of life, without the tobacco exposure! Best place to start? An EverSmoke Starter Kit!

The Romance of EverSmoke: Nothin’ But Love!

add9a273Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (T-minus 2 days), so we thought it would be the perfect time to talk about how romantic vaping is. That’s right, vaping really is the sexier way to enjoy nicotine, and while traditional cigarettes may have been marketed as sexy and alluring in the past, those days have made way for the more enjoyable, more pleasing electronic alternative.

Vaping has become the cooler way to smoke in the past 5 years, and millions of people have switched to e-cigarettes as a result. In fact, at least 1 in 4 smokers have tried an e-cig! By obvious trends, it shows what an amazing effect they are having on people’s lives, and contributing to a more enjoyable way to enjoy a common pastime. And being so pleasurable, many of vaping’s positive benefits can be looked as sexy. So, in honor getting the love vibe on in honor of Valentine’s Day, here are a few ways being an e-smoker is super hot!

  • -No smoke equates to no smell. No longer smelling like smoke is awesome, because the foul odor of tobacco smoke is among the least attractive scents ever! “Tobacco smoke odor is a turn-on” said no one ever.
  • -Cleaner, more beautiful teeth, because a gorgeous smile is always sexy!
  • -Tobacco cigarettes harm the body tremendously, have a filthy stigma attached to them, and therefore being a smoker makes you seem dirty. Vaping is viewed as cleaner, more sanitary, and more people-friendly.
  • -A fresher home, because a clean, nice-smelling environment always sets a good ambiance for love.
  • -A smoker who constantly leaves their date to smoke gives off an attitude of indifference and being distracted. A vaper who stays and pays full attention to the person sitting opposite makes much better company; romantic or otherwise.
  • -E-cigs are just sexier devices. With a modern edge, and a techy-feel, they are intriguing.
  • -Vapor is simply sexy. The way it swirls through the air, the way it dissipates without a trace, the way it makes you feel… Tobacco smoking has seen its day, and vaping has totally become the better, hotter, more sexy way to smoke!

So this Valentine’s Day, enjoy the many pleasurable benefits that come as a result of vaping. If you and your partner share the lifestyle, even better! And if you are still looking to purchase an e-cigarette related gift for your special someone, a belated e-cigarette starter kit or couple’s starter kit will make the perfect, smoke-free Valentine’s Day gifts!

E-Cig Use in California: Let’s be Unbiased, Shall We?

California E-Cig RegulationsThe popularity of electronic cigarettes has grown exponentially lately, and as a result, there is more talk than ever in the media regarding them. News on their effectiveness, what’s in them, how they are used, and who is using them are constant headlines, fueled by last week’s major focus on them on the subject of formaldehyde, it seems like right now everyone is talking about e-cigs.

Following the New England Journal of Medicine piece, (a biased and erroneous article) stating that electronic cigarette produce more formaldehyde than traditional cigarettes, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a statement this week stating that all residents of California should abstain from using the products. Citing that formaldehyde, nicotine, and other toxins and chemicals are the foundation of this statement, they feel e-cigarettes are not a valid option to traditional smoking, and they are a public health risk.

Members of the electronic cigarette community are outraged, as it seems this is just another notch on the belt of California’s ongoing propaganda against smoking and electronic smoking. It is astounding that an entire state is willing to take a stand on the usage of a product millions have embraced, citing a lack of scientific evidence, without having any actual scientific evidence to back up their claims! It is immensely unfortunate that such a broad, biased statement could be implemented to the whole state of California’s residents, and not based on scientific research and factual information. Caution is understandable, but fear mongering and attempting to make “concerned” claims runs more along the lines of propaganda, and less about the actual, factual e-cigarette research.

Yes, they do highlight the fact that e-cigarettes contain nicotine, but what they do not focus on is that users have the option to have nicotine-free liquid, as well as the ability to choose the level they desire. Instead, the head of the CPDH, Ron Chapman, states the nicotine in e-cigarettes is as addictive as the nicotine in traditional cigarettes, and that is sufficient basis for users to abstain.

We are all for regulations that serve a purpose and make sense, such as in the case of age restrictions, and adults taking measures to keep their products out of the hands of minors, however on matters of public health, it is imperative to the public to be served accurate information. The future of vaping will surely be met many more times with cases such as this one, and as difficult as it is to face such harsh admonishing, we’ve come too far and made too much progress to back down.
