Go Smokeless This Valentine’s Day!

That lovey-dovey time of year is coming up fast, and you know, nothing says “I love you” better than e-cigarettes. Chocolates don’t last long, roses wither and get moldy, even a fancy dinner may turn out to be mediocre because restaurants are usually at their worst on that oh-so-romantic night due to the crowds. If you really want to impress your sweety, go sensible and go with electronic smokes. Practicality goes a lot farther, and if you’re looking to “pop the question” it’ll make you even more of a keeper!

Why do e-cigs make the most perfect Valentine’s Day gift? Well, there sure is a lot of meaning behind that snazzy alternative cigarette starter kit! They show you care, you are interested in that person’s long term well being, you want to save them money, you are concerned enough to want them to live better. If you are not a smoker, it shows you are committed enough to level the playing field. See where this is going? We’ve heard feedback from numerous customers who have said that using our e-cigarettes really helped their relationships tremendously by allowing them to smoke free, and giving both parties the ability to spend more time together, save money, and balance things out by removing the obstacle: smoke.

For couples who smoke, getting starter kits together, and going in it together can be a really romantic, bonding experience. Switching can bring a lot of anxiety to some people, who are afraid that they’ll miss cigarettes or not like e-cigs as much, having a partner to do it with can make it much easier and less scary. Many couples who switch together get to share the experience, give each other pointers, and most importantly: support each other through the process. It’s always worth it in the end.

For single people who will be spending the holiday on their own, V-Day is a great reason to make the switch and get an e-cig starter kit because it will offer something else to focus on and enjoy rather than being single. Lots pf people enjoy being single, and Valentine’s Day is just as much fun for playing the field anyway… doing it in style and with vapor may just open up your possibilities even further!

Electronic Cigarette History

Electronic cigarettes may seem like a very new product, but they have indeed, been around long enough to have a legitimate history!

It all goes back to 1963, when a man named Herbert A. Gilbert patented the idea for a device that would allow users to smoke electronically. Great idea, at the wrong time however, because no action was taken beyond this patent. Fast forward to the future, 50 years later, at least Mr. Gilbert gets a nod for having come up with the idea! In the 1960′s, the world wasn’t really in tune with the idea of a smoke-free smoking device. Everyone smoked and there was no negative connotation. You could smoke almost anywhere and no one thought anything of it. There was no talk about health or diseases that stem back to cigarette smoking.

With smoking creating it’s own little epidemic, the general attitudes towards cigarettes, by comparison, today are nothing like the accepted norm of the ’60′s. Sensing the need for world wide change, a Chinese pharmacist and smoker by the name of Han Lik is credited as the modern inventor of the e-cigarette. In 2003, after Lik’s father passed away from lung cancer, he created the prototype for what has become a worldwide phenomenon: the e-cigarette. With backing from the company he worked for, it was only a short time before these products were available to te public, and China embraced them from the start. Hence, e-cigs were born.

Over the next few years, these e-cigs began to spread worldwide, with people in Europe and America quick to hop on this trend. Seriously, come on; nicotine from a device that mimics a cigarette, used in the same way, gives you the same feeling without the smoke and tar? What smoker wouldn’t jump on that? The benefits of e-cigarettes are so widespread and most smokers who use them are thrilled to have them. There is nothing like being able to smoke in public again, that’s for sure!

Anti-tobacco movements have been on the prowl for the past 25 years, and cigarette smoking has come to an all time low. While it hasn’t been a clear cut path for the entire e-cigarette industry, and there have certainly been obstacles presented by legalities and the FDA, one way or another, vapor cigarettes are here to stay.

Before You Order A Starter Kit

Before you order your first starter kit there are several things you should keep in mind. It’s a good idea to learn as much as possible about the products, and what you think will work for you.

Research; there are so many options out there when it comes to electronic cigarettes.

Understand quality. This is a huse variable in the e-cigarette market!

Know what you want: Do you want to go for an e-cigarette starter kit with lots of accessories, or would you prefer something more basic? You can go bare-bones basic, if you like, with our Reusable Express Kits, and even opt for E-Cigarette Disposables if you want no commitment at all.

Commit to giving up cigarettes, if you haven’t yet. If this is what you truly want, focus your intentions on that goal. For some it’s easy, and for others it takes some some effort.

Understand that quitting cigarettes may not happen immediately. It can take a while, weeks or even months to wean yourself entirely off cigarettes.

Refund Policy: Make sure the company you buy from has one.  There is always the possibility of not liking your kit. A good company will definitely offer a way for you to return it.

Warranty: Always important also because things can, and will inevitably happen. Sometimes you may get a product that does not work, and there can be times where things stop working. Don’t take chances with companies that don’t back up their products and help their customers out.

Embarking on the decision to use electronic cigarettes instead of tobacco is a really big one, and in order to have the most successful experience with it, you should plan accordingly. It’s always a good choice to go with your healthier option, so set yourself up right!

 

 

Electronic Cigarettes: Separating Myth from Reality

There are lots of myths about e-cigarettes. You know how it goes; a story gets told numerous times and the facts begin to distort! Anyone looking into e-cigs is bound to come across a variety of different myths regarding them, so here is some info to clarify the stories you may have heard. Like anything in life, it really will help your search along if you use common sense over anything!

If you research any topic on the internet you are sure to come across a wide range of information. While you know you can trust many sites as being fully reputable and knowledge-based, there are many more that aren’t. So when it comes to electronic cigarettes, it sure helps to know what you are looking for. You’ve got to understand the products and the many options that are available. Learn about all the brands out there, understand the different features, and if you can you should experiment with a few.  Electronic cigarette reviews are one way of gauging the market to get a feel for it, and what people are saying regarding specific brands and products. There are many sites devoted to giving honest reviews where the user has first hand experience, and you can learn a lot from them.

Another important way to steer clear of the nonsense stories is to understand the laws and rules regarding e-cigs. Some claim that e-cigarettes will soon be illegal, but this is certianly not true. While the government has made mention of regulating the, there is no real reason that e-cigs should be illegal. Ordinary cigarettes are much more harmful, and electronic cigarettes do not warrant any necessary or dangers needed to ban them.

Some of the stories I have seen floating around about e-cigs include the worries that they can explode, that the vapor presents the same dangers of second hand smoke, that nicotine causes cancer, no matter how you get it. I’ve heard that they can contain anti-freeze (not true) and I have heard that contain the same level of carcinogens as traditional cigarettes (also untrue). Some worry about e-cigarettes costing too much, and being a more expensive habit to assume. This too is wrong because they have been made to be a more affordable and convenient alternative. While you do have to spend some money in the early days, those costs are quickly made up because cartridges are quite economical.

So while there are many myths about e-cigarettes, as you can see, if you dig a little deeper the truth is there! With very, very few negatives, and a world of positive, electronic cigarettes have taken an enormous hold over the smoking world. Learn the facts, and happy vaping!

NY Bans E-Cigs Sales to Minors

New York has just banned the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors, as of January 1st. One of the nation’s most determined states when it comes to keeping cigarettes and nicotine products out of the hands of the youth, New York is known for being pretty tough on smokers. This new legislation however, is a great thing for e-cigs. It gives them further credibility, and quiets down the critics who claim they are made to target teenagers.

E-cigarettes, unlike traditional cigarettes are not marketed towards children. They have been made for smokers, as an alternative. They are not made to lure in potential smokers, regardless of age, and definitely not those underage! They are designed to be similar to cigarettes so that smokers can get used them, and to keep them familiar. Since the inception of electronic cigs, since they hit the market, people have tried to claim that they are attempting to appeal to children and teens with their many flavors. EverSmoke, and any responsible e-cigarette companies have already had in place measures to keep those under the age of 18 from purchasing their products. If you analyze the vast majority of advertisements for e-cigarettes you will find that they do not use marketing tactics to entice young people. It is a niche market that appeals to adults who are current smokers!

While it has not been illegal until now for minors to purchase e-cigarettes in New York, it would be interesting to actually see figures on how many young people beneath the legal age are using them. I am sure it isn’t many. They are not exactly the “hot new thing” for young people; they are more likely to be used by these very same kids’ parents to help them get away from cigarettes! E-cigs are not a gateway sort of product; they are usually used by people looking to stop smoking! When it comes to technology, kids aren’t interested in things like alternative cigarettes… they are more inclined to go after high-tech gaming systems and iPhones. Less and less teens are smoking now than ever anyway, because tobacco doesn’t have the same cool factor as it once did. The new laws regarding e-cigarettes are a great thing; underage kids shouldn’t be using nicotine products, and this gives the electronic cigarette industry further fuel as legitimate cigarette alternatives!

10 Reasons E-Cigs are Better than Tobacco Cigs

Need a reason to switch to electronic cigarettes? Here are 10!

1- More convenience, in every way. Convenience is essential to multitasking, getting things done, and making time in everyday life. Many smokers are annoyed by the time it takes to smoke, as well as the prep it takes to actually smoke. You have to head out, take time out of your day, perhaps put on additional warm clothes, and then get yourself ready to come back in after than five minutes. This all vanishes when you use e-cigarettes.

2- More practical than using lighters. Lighters can be annoying, they can burn your fingers, they run out of liquid, they get lost in your bag, they are one more thing you have to remember. Our electronic cigarettes need no lighting, you just take them out and vape!

3- Better for you. Need we even go there? Smoke and tar are really awful for you and your organs. E-cigs don’t leave these toxic substances behind.

4- Cleaner. Less time cleaning up after yourself gives you more time for more important, more enjoyable things. Ash and butts are no longer a concern. When you vape, you leave a trail of nothing gross behind!

5- Drastically less polluting, since we are talking about waste. None in the short run, very little in the long run. Cigarettes are one of the world’s largest problems when it comes to pollution. They end up everywhere, and have created toxic problems on every continent. This is reason alone to drop them and do your part to keep our planet clean!

6- More flavor options. Don’t tobacco and menthol get boring after a while? We offer three different nicotine flavors, menthol, plus flavors like peppermint, cherry, peach, vanilla, coffee, and pina colada!

7- The benefit of having a delivery service with our Home Delivery Program. All smokers have experience the annoying drama of running out of cigarettes at the worst moment, and not having an extra pack to replace it. Late night convenience store runs, having to find a gas station in a place you aren’t familiar with, not being able to find your specific brand or strength; these are never enjoyable to deal with! Our HDP takes all of this hassle out of the picture by delivering your cartridges to you, at the frequency of your choice, and in your preference of flavors. On time, and waiting for you!

8- More fun to use. They just feel good in every way! They are attractive, and pleasurable!

9- Use them anywhere, and around anyone. With no second hand smoke, and no smell, no one will be bothered or affected by your vapor.

10- Way more affordable. Oh yes, savings combined with all these other benefits is pretty wonderful. One of the most crucial elements to why smokers are switching by the millions, the savings add up fast!

E-Cigarettes are the Eco-Conscious Choice

Everyone these days has gotten into  the habit of choosing healthier and greener options in their daily lives. Smoking is no different, as so many smokers have embraced the idea of using healthier, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly e-cigarettes. What sense would it make if you were to spend double the price for organic produce, drive a low emission vehicle, and chose all natural products yet still were tossing your cigarette butts on the ground? None!

Electronic cigarettes are a greener choice because they are better for the environment in so many ways. They are reusable; only e-cigarette cartridges get replaced, cost less (perhaps you can spend those extra bucks you are saving towards a fabulous eco-vacation), they don’t encourage polluting, they don’t support a farming industry (tobacco) that is big on using dangerous fertilizers and chemicals to control the production of their crop, they do not kill millions of people by destroying their bodies, and they are simply much healthier. They do not pollute the air in any way, and produce no second hand smoke which is harmful to those around you as well as bothersome to those who wish not to breathe it. Most importantly, they do not contribute to the vast, global problem that has been created by cigarette waste. Imagine, just a little cigarette is part of such a massive chain of effects!

Using green e-cigs is pretty nice for your conscience too. Because when you do, you don’t have to feel guilty for all of the above. You can enjoy your nicotine fix, enjoy the essence of smoking, without feeling the least bit un-green! Most people are aware of the many ways we can all lessen our impact on the environment, and smokers can really go the extra mile when choosing e-cigs. Cigarettes are quite outdated in today’s technologically, environmentally conscious world, and why smoke tobacco when you can cleaner, greener vapor?

E-Cigs, Resolutions, and Sticking With It!

So the end of the year is nearing and we’re all thinking about our resolutions, right? How’d you do during 2012? We know many of our customers started out the year hoping to make quitting work this time, and we were pretty blown away by those who really did a great job in making the switch from tobacco to vapor cigs by using our products. Everyone knows how hard quitting smoking can be, and being able to help others choose a healthier way to live is an amazing thing.

New Year resolutions are a funny thing. Many people make them just to break them, as statistics show that 4 out of 5 people end up failing, with a third of them quitting before the end of January! Sheesh! Why even bother? Is it just the bravado of one too many during a New Year’s Eve brawl that brings out the best in our goal-setting attempts? Quitting smoking is always a popular one, and it seems smokers are more interested in doing so, and actually achieving their goal because of the availability of electronic cigarettes.

E-cigarettes can do what cessation methods cannot, because they are not devices for cigarette cessation! Merely an alternative, they have become enormously popular as smokers are switching by the masses. They give you control where cigarettes kept you dependent, they offer a method that is similar to help with the habit of actually smoking, and they let you tailor your nicotine to your preference, and when you are ready to lessen it, you can with cartridges in lower doses. There is no cessation device that allows you to enjoy all the sensations of a cigarette, without the smoke! So for smokers, they truly are the best of both worlds. And this is why smokers are sticking with e-cigs, and why we saw so many people keep their resolutions in 2012!

If you are looking to quit smoking in 2013, give yourself a fighting chance. Don’t go at it alone, because with e-cigs, cold turkey is a waste of time. Order an e-cigarette starter kit now, and see how great smoke free can be!
