Why is Everyone Switching E-Smoking?

reasons to switch to vapingIt seems these days that smokers are switching to vaping all the time, and in greater numbers. Here’s a look at why!

  1. Technology: It’s everywhere. Technology has seeped into every nook, cranny, and aspect of our lives, and in many ways, improved it. Digital smoking has enabled smokers to have a more modern, simplified, cleaner way to smoke.

  2. Savings: Everyone wants to save more money, and factoring in how expensive smoking cigarettes is, alternatives are a total necessity. Vaping can save smokers thousands of dollars every year!

  3. Enjoyment: For many, vaping is vastly more enjoyable than smoking, and it becomes as much of a hobby out of enjoyment, as a craving for nicotine.

  4. Freedom: Who doesn’t need more? Freedom from ashtrays, from having to be in specific places to smoke, from feeling like a leper anytime you want to smoke… vaping offers much more ability to simply enjoy the process.

  5. Options: The amount of different options vapers have opposed to smokers is beyond compare. Different devices, ways to charge, accessories, flavors, nicotine levels, liquid ratios; it’s astounding and amazing!

  6. Convenience: Having smoking fit into your lifestyle, instead of having to work around it all the time is major. Convenience is a big part of what e-cigarettes offer!

  7. No smoke = none of the problems of smoke. Smoke is pretty awful, and it leaves behind a foul residue, AKA tar. No one likes secondhand smoke, and once you leave it behind, and get used to the clean essence of vapor, you’ll most likely never look back!

  8. No smell: Cigarette smoke and the lingering funk it leaves behind in its wake are just gross. They are the antithesis to clean, fresh air, and more akin to nasty, musty, and dingy.

  9. No stigma: While some people saunter through life never caring what others think, for those who do care about what others around them think, the stigma of smoking is not comfortable. It’s a reality for smokers that they are often looked down upon, and it’s rather nice to shed this image when one becomes a vaper.

  10. No tobacco: because tobacco is the root of the problem. It is the part of the cigarette that requires burning. It is the part that creates smoke. It is the part that causes the most harm. Without tobacco, cigarettes are rendered useless. Most smokers are thrilled to leave the tobacco behind because they know that it is the worst part of smoking.

Having an alternative option such as vaping has allowed smokers to enjoy what they love about smoking, in a much cleaner, simpler, more enjoyable way, without all of the negatives. Smokers are switching because they are finding their needs met in a better way. Technology is amazing, isn’t it?

What is the Best Temperature for E-Cigs?

Extreme Temperatures and E-CigsThis summer has been a scorcher, hasn’t it? With record-breaking temps all across the land, and far away as well, here’s a little PSA about your e-cigs and the heat. Particularly, why the heat is not compatible with them, and why keeping them at a controlled level around room temperature is ideal.

If you consider your electronic cigarettes an investment, which we hope you do because they do offer so much in the way of pleasure and savings, treating them properly is essential to making this investment last as long as possible.

You’ve probably figured out by now that the most important part of your e-cig is the battery. It is the main component of the device, and it is the most delicate. Atomizers get replaced every time you swap out a cartridge, and every other part can be replaced rather easily. Therefore, the battery is the lifeblood of vaping. It is at once the power source and the base of the device. Protect this one part, if you opt to neglect others!

Extreme temperatures, particularly those on the hot end of the spectrum, are especially dangerous to e-cigarette batteries. These batteries, which are lithium ion batteries, cannot handle extreme heat or cold, so keeping them in your car, on the dashboard, out on the porch, or in sunny windows, is never a good idea! Even if the temperatures are moderate, your car is the worst place to hold your devices and batteries because cars heat up way hotter inside than outside, and this can cause immense damage on your batteries. The dangers range from a wide array of possibilities; from melting and warping to inflicting damage upon the battery that causes it to drain faster.

However, freezing temps are also not exactly ideal, as freezing can cause the liquid to freeze, which in turn can cause the inner workings of your battery to expand, and outright destroy the battery.

Another no-no? Moisture. Whether in the form of rain, humidity, or other accidental exposure, water and electronic devices generally do not play well together, so keep your e-cig battery safe, dry, and away from any external sources of water.

Keeping your e-cigarette batteries safe and protected is so important to their overall lifespan and ability to provide you with the tobacco-free enjoyment you want. While it may seem bothersome to take these extra precautions, your e-cigs are worth it; protect your investment!

The Dirt on Diacetyl

The Benefit of Diacetyl-Free E-LiquidOne of the big buzzwords in the e-cig industry at the moment is Diacetyl. As in, diacetyl-free e-liquids are the preferred liquids to be vaping because diacetyl is a pretty sketchy additive.

So, if you’re not in the know, here is some useful info regarding it; what it is, why you may not want it in your liquids, and what it’s known to do! We feel that being an informed vaper is key to making the best decisions, and educating yourself is always to your benefit!

Recently, there was some media hype regarding this substance, and a slew of reports began promulgating all liquids as containing it. Of course, as to be expected with spin, these erroneous reports were shot down, particularly when liquids were tested on a British TV program, where the findings discovered only one of ten brands tested contained the substance. And, just for the record, EverSmoke liquids contain no diacetyl, so vape on on with confidence!

What is it?

Diacetyl is a flavor additive used in a variety of different foods, and it originates as a byproduct of the dairy industry. It is used to impart a buttery, or sweetish flavor. When eaten, it is considered to be generally safe, however, when inhaled into the lungs, it’s a different story altogether!

Why is it Dangerous?

Diacetyl becomes dangerous when it is heated and then inhaled into the lungs, consistently over extended time periods. Diacetyl is known to cause the dangerous lung disease, bronchiolitis obliterans, also known as “popcorn lung,” which inflames the bronchioles, obstructing the airflow, resulting in wheezing and a dry cough.

How to Avoid it:

If you’re interested in vaping with liquids that do not contain this lovely stuff, luckily, you probably won’t have a hard time deducing a brand that is committed to keeping diacetyl out of their liquids. For starters, EverSmoke contains no diacetyl, and we can attest (unbiasedly) to the delicious flavors offered in our cartridges.

Hype and hysteria my serve the purpose of bringing to light issues that of great importance to the public, however, facts are always a necessity. E-cigarette myths are always abundant, so reading between the lines is really important. While diacetyl may be found out there in other brands’ liquids, and even though it’s got some pretty negative connotations attached to it, it can (and should) be avoided. The simple solution? EverSmoke!

Let’s Talk About Nicotine

What is Nicotine? Nicotine Molecular StructureNicotine is a huge topic of discussion as of late. It’s a hot button issue, and big debates involving this substance are currently occurring at the legislative levels. Obviously, it relates directly to the electronic cigarette industry and culture, as our products involve voluntary usage of it, and put the control into people’s hands to determine whether or not, as well as, how they opt to use it. As with much regarding laws and electronic cigarette regulation, is it becoming a question of taking power away from people, or is it truly for their benefit that nicotine is gaining so much attention?

With that in mind, let’s discuss nicotine. Here is a closer look at this substance, often given so much negative press.

What is Nicotine?

Nicotine is a naturally-occurring substance, found in nature, derived from the nightshade plant family, most obviously within the tobacco plant. It is considered a stimulant in mammals, and can be harmful in excessive doses. Other natural sources of (trace amounts of) nicotine include, tomatoes, eggplants, potatoes, green pepper, and the leaves of to coca plant, which contains nicotine alkaloids.

How Does it Feel?

Nicotine is the most widely used nootropic substance, behind caffeine, in the world. It gives users feelings of alertness, awareness, boosting focus and cognition, plus enabling better performance overall.

How is it Used?

Medically and recreationally, nicotine is used in countless ways. Everyday users, who smoke cigarettes, use electronic cigarettes, gums, nicotine patches, and cigars enjoy it for the pleasant feelings as well as the boosted mindset. Medically, nicotine has been used in treatments designed to help smokers reduce dependence, as well as in ailments such as ulcerative colitis. Furthermore, research indicates that there is potential for nicotine to benefit patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, attributed to how nicotine aids in enhancing focus and concentration.

Is Nicotine Carcinogenic?

While this misunderstanding pervades common knowledge of nicotine, it is not a carcinogenic substance.

Is Nicotine Dangerous?

Generally no, but like many other substances, it can be overdosed on. If you are using e-liquids instead of e-cig nicotine cartridges, purchase from brands that sell them in childproof bottles, and under all circumstances, keep them out of reach of children. Just as you would with alcohol or other drugs and medicines.

So, what are your thoughts on nicotine now that you know more about it? When it comes to electronic cigarettes, nicotine e-liquids are used in lieu of actual tobacco. Users are able to choose their own level, and have the option to use no nicotine at all if they prefer. The difference between vaping and smoking is the availability of choices, giving users the power and option to decide on their own. Bottom line: nicotine is not the bad guy.

Benefits to Switching: A Healthier Lifestyle

get healthy by vapingOne of the nicest perks to leaving tobacco behind in favor vapor smoking is the benefit of a healthier lifestyle. Here is a look at some of the ways e-cigs can help contribute to a better quality of life, and what you’re in for should you decide to make the switch!

-No Longer a Tobacco Smoker

By simply no longer subjecting your body to a tobacco smoke, you can be free of all those chemicals cigarettes are laced with. Your lungs will no longer be full of smoke, which carries said toxic chemicals, and they will not be accumulating the residual tar from cigarettes.

-Better Taste Capacity

Smoking hinders your ability to taste things correctly. Luckily, it can be reversed, and when you switch to e-cigs, you very well may experience this pleasant side effect. As a result, you may be able to make better food choices for yourself, since you’ll be able to taste a world of new, exciting flavors!


Switching can often make your mouth dry, and it is recommended that you drink a lot of water to keep your mouth, as well as your body hydrated to prevent dry mouth and feeling dehydrated. Upping your water intake has the pleasant side effect of cleansing your system, upping the performance of your digestion, flushing out toxins, and helping you feel good.

-Get Active

If switching has you feeling frisky, energized, or just so darn elated because you’ve escaped the shackles of tobacco, you may be physically up for more activity. In which case, you may be more inclined towards exercising, and in which case, good for you! Cigarettes affect the cardiovascular system, and are known to make users feel awful when working up a sweat and doing anything that involves heavy physical activity. Go ahead and switch; let us know how you feel!

-Your Love Life

Speaking of physical activity and getting sweaty, vapers smell better, have nicer smiles, and their hearts and lungs don’t have to function through the haze of tobacco. Get where this is going? Vapers are more appealing lovers, and we all know getting it on can make you feel great, is helpful at relieving stress, and overall just staying healthy!

So when you think about it, vaping offers a lot of great benefits that can make you feel awesome! Quality of life accounts for so much; why not take advantage of the possibilities?

It’s All About Control; Not Quitting

E-Cigarette ResearchIn response to a recent article published by Health Day and US News Health, we would like to take this opportunity to address their statements regarding electronic cigarette users and their lack of critical thinking when it comes to their smoking and usage of these products.

The article attempts to label electronic cigarette users as delusional and foolish. Specifically stating that those who use these devices are not in tune with reality, and they erroneously believe that these products will assist them with quitting smoking, when in actuality it is not possible. It’s such a shame when even major publications cannot distinguish e-cigarette myths from reality.

Our take? It’s rather disturbing when an established news publication prints falsifications, generalizations, and commentary that lacks substance, goes heavy on speculation, and overdoses on fluff. They further their argument by “backing up” their claims with more biased opinions, not actual facts, from so-called scientists. Statistics are one way of proving a fact, however making a broad generalization about the entire vaping population, (we’re talking millions of people here, within a several billion dollar industry) holds no water.

Electronic cigarettes are not cessation devices. They are marketed as alternatives to traditional cigarettes, and most users are aware of this. Along the same lines, many users have been able to switch completely to vaping, and consciously decrease not only their nicotine intake but also their frequency of smoking. There is a higher level of control for those who opt for vapor, and most users will praise the amount of control they gain over their habits as a result of switching.

One of the big differences between traditional cigarettes and electronic, is that with e-cigarettes you can call the shots on almost every single aspect. You choose the style of device you’d like, your flavor, your nicotine level, the accessories would like to use, in addition to a host of others. It’s an experience that caters to the individual, while filling the void of smoking. While traditional cigarettes offer basically one style, and one way to use them, e-cigarettes put the control into users hands. And while this article aims to shine a negative light on those who use these products, cast a shadow of fear for those who may be interested in switching, glorify speculation for those have issues with e-smoking, it doesn’t mar the truth that many smokers have been able to decrease their nicotine levels so drastically they were able to quit smoking due to having full control back in their hands.

Delusion? Not within a population who readily research everything with authority. Misunderstanding? Not the majority of vapers when it comes to what products they use. This is one demographic who does not take general statements at face value. These are thinkers, doers, and outright seekers; vapers are not ones to stay in the dark. When it comes to e-cigarette research, medical, environmental, and otherwise, you bet these guys are on it!

Do E-Cigs Boost Workplace Productivity?

E-Cigarettes in the WorkplaceE-cigarettes in the workplace. It’s an ongoing discussion. Why? Because smoking in the workplace is obviously a no-go, and vaping allows for  more productivity during  work, without needing excessive smoke-breaks. So, do e-cigs in the workplace boost productivity, or do they hinder it?

All work environments are different. Not everyone is aware of the differences between smoking and vaping. Many employers and managing personnel are not fond of their workers needing constant time-outs to smoke. Furthermore, smokers carry certain stigma that do not classify them as the healthiest of employees.

Where is this going? Well, the concept of vaping in the office is an argument split down the middle. Some see it as a beneficial advent, enabling smokers to “smoke” without causing a scene, annoying anyone with the smell of smoke, while enabling them to get more work done without needing to exit to light up as often as necessary.

On the other hand, many employers are not yet willing to allow an all-day vaping free-for-all. Because there has been no regulation regarding e-cigarettes, to outright say they are safe for indoor usage, and do not expose those nearby to anything, not allowing on the job vaping is a safer position to take.

So, can e-cigs up productivity? Yes. For example, smokers are often fixated on their next cigarette. In times of stress, as often comes within the territory of working, smokers want a cigarette. In moments of concentration, smokers want a cigarette to boost it. During mid-day slump, smokers want a cigarette. See where this is going? All those mini-breaks equate to smoking employees needing another option to stay on task, and get things done. Vaping in the workplace solves it.

At the moment, some employers may not have the ability to allow vaping on the job, even if they want to due to liability. However, if you are interested in opening up a dialogue with your workplace on the subject, start with educating on electronic cigarette usage. The more awareness people have, the more acceptance can build. While this is generally a new area of discussion, hopefully it will be the accepted norm in time.

10 Tip for Vaping on the Go

Vaping on the GoHere are 10 tips for vaping on the go, because with life moving at light speed, and everyone having 1 million things going on at once, we need all the convenience we can get. If you want to make e-smoking fit into your busy life more easily, keep reading!

1. Prepare ahead of time. If you’ve a lot going on, having a strategy is central, and this extends even into your nicotine habit. Always think 10 steps ahead, then you can roll with the punches. So the night before, pack extra cartridges, extra chargers, and extra fully charged batteries with your gear and everything should be good.

2. Accessorize Your E-Cigs: Batteries, chargers, and cartridges are essential. The PCC is one of the best things to have, because outlet-free charging comes in handy big time! Don’t ever think you can get by with just the bare minimum.

3. Think organization. Arm yourself with a handy storage case for all of your e-cig storage needs.

4. Invest in commuter friendly accessories like the car charging adapter.

5. In your computer bag or iPad case, always keep a USB charger accessible. Because it’s so easy to power up your batteries from a digital device, it’s especially useful if you do this as you work. Killing two birds with one stone.

6. If work or life involves a lot of travel for you, keep abreast of all the different, ever-changing rules regarding e-cigarettes and airplanes. In short, keep all of your gear with you in your carry-on, and always pack extras, because delays, cancellations, and crazy things happen.

7. Commuter? Grab an e-cig lanyard for serious on-the-go convenience. This allows for hands-free, all-access vaping so if you’re in and out of buses, trains and taxis, you’re good to go.

8. Back it up. Keep extra cartridges at your desk at work for those emergency situations. An extra battery is not a bad idea either because things come up, and forgetfulness is real.

9. Pep up your step with exciting flavors! Traveling, working, whatever- any kind of business calls for a little stimulation and e-cig flavors can be the perfect pick me up. Vanilla, Java, Peach?

10. PowerCig. No you can’t use this gadget on the highway or in the (typical) office, but after a long, stressful day, unwinding with this baby will soothe your soul!

Electronic Cigarettes: Everyday Environmental Choices

Cigarette PollutionWant to be more environmentally conscious? Drop the tobacco and use e-cigarettes.

Well e-cigarettes are not typically considered a typical eco-friendly item, there are many benefits to using them that go easy on the environment. Especially when compared to traditional cigarettes, if you’re going to make a choice based on personal responsibility and the desire to opt for the smoking method with the least impact, vaping is the way to go.

As a smoker one of the best things you can do to do your part in making wiser choices is to stop using tobacco and switch to e-cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are better for the environment, and a fantastic alternative because they are reusable, they don’t contain tobacco, they do not produce a fraction of the trash that traditional cigarettes produce, and they do not pose same threat as being so easily littered like traditional cigarettes.

Tobacco cigarettes pollute a massive amount throughout the world, ending up in rivers, lakes, streams, as well as plenty of other wildlife habitats. They are considered the most polluted items in the world and unfortunately the pollution does not end when the cigarette is strewn on the floor after a smoker is finished with the butt. Cigarette butts do not decompose efficiently, and as they slowly break down, they begin to release all of their toxic compounds, polluting on a smaller, yet still toxic, scale. They constantly end up  in the digestive systems of wild animals, and contribute to countless deaths in the natural world.

While e-cigarettes do contain some disposable components, such as cartridges, these are used and changed less frequently, they are harder to ignorantly toss on the ground, and just for perspective, one e-cigarette cartridge is equal to about 20 traditional cigarettes.

Being more eco-conscious is about making wise decisions and improving your daily choices. And with all of the other other many benefits of electronic smoking compared to the countless negatives of traditional smoking, being able to use the method that offers similar experience with so many more benefits as well as being better for the environment makes vaping the smart way to smoke.
