Your Senses, and What Smoking Does to Them

How tobacco affects smell and tasteYour senses… they’re pretty remarkable. They shape your perspective, are home to your pleasure centers, and they are responsible for everything that involves delicious tastes, amazing aromas, and wondrous sounds. The thought of living without them, and having to navigate this crazy world without them sounds rather drab, does it not? Smoking is a great way to destroy them, and if you’re needing a good reason to shelf the smoke, here is a look at what smoke does to your senses, in particular, your senses of taste and smell. Because why compromise this amazing capacity we’ve been blessed with by nature?


Located in the rear of the nose are the olfactory nerves, and these transmit signals to the brain every time you inhale, allowing you to identify what you’re smelling. Traditional tobacco cigarettes dull these nerves over time, rendering them damaged, causing your ability to smell correctly and intensely to be hampered. In fact, according to the American Council on Science and Health, a frequent smoker is twice as likely to experience a reduced level of ability to smell correctly, than a nonsmoker.


The sense of smell is directly related to how one’s sense of taste works, however there are other ways taste is impacted by tobacco smoke. The sense of smell is affected by smoke in a physical manner, in which the tastebuds are actually flattened by the chemicals in smoke. In a study done in Greece where the tastebuds of smokers and nonsmokers were compared, and the tastebuds of smokers were found to be significantly flatter than those of the nonsmokers. The resulting effect causes one to not taste food as profoundly, with the sense of taste overall dulled to a drastic degree. What a shame!

The good part of all of this bad news is that smokers are able to regain their abilities to smell and taste correctly if they opt to switch to vapor cigarettes, which offer a similar experience without the chemicals and tobacco. Taste buds and olfactory nerves are actually known to regrow, as quickly as within a few days of quitting smoking (though individual results may vary, and can take up to a few months). The human body’s ability to evolve and heal is amazing, isn’t it?

CDC Clarifies Common E-Cig Myth: Nonsmokers Are Not Interested

CDC Data The Centers for Disease Control (the CDC) recently reported that e-cigarettes pose way less of a threat than critics have been portraying them as, even as the popularity of electronic cigarettes grows. And, to stick it to the nonsensical rumor that electronic cigarettes are a danger to society because they are going to encourage a new wave of nonsmokers converting to the tobacco-smoke-filled dark side, the data cited by the CDC turns this misguided theory on its side.

The CDC has based their status on the findings of a new study from the National Health Interview Study, which has provided the latest, most conclusive statistics on the habits of smokers and recently quit nonsmokers.

Stats From the Study

In the study, it was determined that 12.6% of American adults had, at least at one time, tried an e-cigarette. It also concluded that 3.7% of American adults currently use electronic cigarette devices regularly, which means that at a minimum they use them some days. Among the other interesting findings from the study, 47% of current smokers, and 55% of former smokers who had recently quit smoking have tried an electronic cigarette or other vapor device item at least once. 15.9% of tobacco smokers and 22% of recently quit former smokers are using electronic cigarettes on a somewhat regular basis. Also of note, tobacco users who are currently smoking  who had, within the last year, attempted to quit cigarette smoking were much more likely to employ electronic cigarettes as a method than smokers who made no effort to quit smoking.

As these findings from the study show, electronic cigarettes are being used by people who want to stop smoking tobacco, and are favoring their options in having alternatives, rather than nonsmokers who are getting lured into smoking by these attractive, trendy devices. The study also found that less than o.4% of nonsmokers have actually been introduced to smoking as a result of e-cigarettes, evidence that nonsmokers are really not that interested. And for publishing this, as well as agreeing with the e-cigarette usage scientific data found in this study, we applaud the CDC for their ability to read between the lines of fact and fiction.

Call to Action: Don’t Let the FDA Ban Vapor Products!

Vapor Products Call to Action!Do you use vapor products? Are you a big fan of vapor products? Do you know that the future of e-cigarettes is on the line? Are you aware that your ability to use them freely may not exist if the FDA’s Tobacco Deeming Regulations stand?

Last week the CASAA, (the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association) made an urgent Call to Action in efforts to get everyone involved in this industry to make it known to Washington, local senators and congressional representatives that this kind of action would be a major detriment. In the first few days of the announcement, tens of thousands of e-cigarette and vapor product users stormed the White House with calls and emails, pleading for support of a Bill that will change how the FDA regards alternative tobacco products.

If you are just now hearing about this call to action, or the imposed amendment to the FDA’s proposal, the vapor products industry is asking for support of Bill HR 2058, which will work to keep vapor products available to all adults who use them. Otherwise, within the next 2 – 4 years, 99.9% of all electronic cigarette and vapor related products will be off the market, and not available for sale.

Seems entirely unfair, unjust, and simply wrong, right? What would your life be like if you were placed in a position that gave you only the option of switching back to tobacco because you had no other choice? Well, we urge you to speak up! It is absolutely necessary to make your voice heard, and we highly encourage you to call the White House, as well as email your Congressional Representative and Senators to ask for their support in this extremely important effort of Bill HR 2058. The banning of vapor products will come at a devastating cost to everyone in this industry. Denying users of a valid alternative to the dangers of tobacco, while destroying countless businesses, and impeding innovation that has come so far in just a few years are but a few examples; we can do something to avoid this! Let your voice be heard!

E-cigarette activism may seem like a minimal effort, but it is vastly important as it is a newer industry and it is susceptible to attack. For more ways on how to become more involved in protecting your rights as a vaper and to make voice your heard, here are our tips on how to get involved in supporting the vapor industry.

Smoking & Your Bod

Health Dangers of TobaccoLet’s talk about your body. Specifically smoking and your body. If you have common sense, you’re most likely aware that smoking is absolutely atrocious for your health. Here’s a look at the many ways tobacco messes with the body, and why it’s a smart idea to stay as far away from the stuff as possible. You know, in case you need just another valid reason.

The Immune System: Smoking is a major cause of stress to the body, and under a constant state of stress, the body will never perform at optimal levels, and will have a harder time recovering. Smoking weakens the immune system, rendering it less effective over time, making it harder to fight off infections and heal wounds. Continuous smoking causes the white blood cells to elevate, as it’s the body’s way of reacting to sickness and/ or injury, and over time, after prolonged periods of high white blood cell counts, the body becomes more prone to stroke, heart attack, and cancer. Interesting that cancer and smoking are so related, isn’t it?

The Ears: Smoking has been linked to hearing loss. Because it reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches the cochlea, the cochlea in turn, can become damaged, leaving one with mild to moderate hearing loss.

The Eyes: Macular degeneration, cataracts, blindness, and affecting your ability to use one’s naturally endowed nightvision have all been linked to smoking.

The Stomach: Love your gut? If “no” was your answer, you definitely should steer clear of the cigs. Tobacco smokers, according to research, have bigger bellies than nonsmokers. They are also more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes, and being a smoker makes this disease even harder to control.

Sex & Fertility: In women, smoking is known to reduce estrogen production, which is an absolute essential to female health, fertility, and having a healthy sex drive.

In men, smoking makes erectile dysfunction a much a greater risk; less blood flow is not a good thing. Tobacco smoke also holds the potential to damage the genetic material carried in sperm, which can cause infertility, as well as lead to genetic complications in your children.

Were you aware of all the many other ways tobacco smoke can be so harmful? Yup, it’s not just the lungs, heart, and mouth (though those are the big ones) that are susceptible to its ravaging, and all these other areas are pretty important too! If you need a reason to stop smoking, and start vaping, consider tobacco to be your body’s worst enemy!

Fall, Vaping and Football: A Perfect Combination!

happy male friends at home

It is that time of year that so many look forward to…a cool breeze in the air and football fun!  We think there’s no better way to celebrate than with a group of friends where you can be yourself and enjoy what you love – the game of football and your favorite e-cig vaporizer.

Even if you aren’t a lover of the game of football, you have to admit that being involved in the competitive excitement with friends, while enjoying good eats, drinks and e-liquid flavors, is a blast.   Let’s face the fact that if you are a vaper, you know your enjoyment will be amplified if you are able to delight in your e-cig experience while partaking in some fun.

Enjoying football season as a vaper is a much better experience than as a traditional analog cigarette smoker.  As a former smoker, do you remember having to walk outside to enjoy your cigarette? You would think it was a safe time to cut out for a quick smoke break when all of sudden your friends would erupt with excitement at the play of the year.  You missed it because you had to step away!

When vaping, you don’t bother others with secondhand smoke and nasty fumes.  You can stay right where you are and enjoy your friends, football and vaporizer all at the same time.

If you prefer to go out to watch the game, many sports bars and restaurants allow vaping indoors as opposed to traditional smoking while you are munching on those wings, sipping on a beer and screaming your lungs out for your favorite team.  Also, a number of stadiums allow vaping and if not, they usually offer an area for you to vape without missing out on the game.

Want to get creative about trying new flavors of e-juice and blends while cheering on your favorite team?  The fun is no doubt in the flavor and EverSmoke offers a delicious assortment of 100 percent USA made flavor cartridges.

At Eversmoke, we are here to answer any questions you may have about transitioning to e-cig vaporizers, as well as provide you with top quality vaping devices and e-juice. Contact us if you have any questions, or continue browsing our blog and knowledge center.

What You Need to Know About Charging

Eversmoke-Charger-TipsCharging batteries. Sounds pretty self-explanatory and simple, right? Insert charger into device, plug it into an outlet, and let it charge is the basic how-to, is it not? Well, in actuality, yes, however it can get a bit more complicated than that.

Here are the basics about charging e-cig batteries, because there is some additional info you may or may not know about, and it will serve you to have an awareness of it.

Use Only the Charger Your E-Cigarette Battery is Meant For.

In other words, do not swap products and chargers, or use any charger not specified specifically for your device. Even if similar items may seem to fit perfectly, they most likely will not charge at the proper levels, with the proper voltage, etc. In fact, using random chargers can result in damage, or worse.

Overnight Charging is a No-No.

Charging should be up to 100% and then promptly discontinued to ensure the e-cigarette battery life. Leaving a battery on the charger extensively after reaching full capacity can wear it down, making it less effective, can cause technical problems, and/ or reduce overall battery life.

Keep Away From Children and Pets

Like e-liquids, your devices and chargers should be kept out the reach of children and pets at all times. Their safety should be your primary concern, and this is not something you should get too comfortable with. Storing your devices and chargers at a level children and/ or pets will not be able to access is your best bet.

Modify at Your Own Risk, And This Includes Chargers

MODS are mods, and not all e-cig devices and items are meant to be modified with DIY type efforts. Do not use your charger in any way that it is not designated to be used in; it could result in injury as you may be messing with electricity. If you are looking to use MODS, please use only products designed for this kind of use. Standard EverSmoke e-cigarettes, and all of their additional accessories and parts should never be used in such ways.

4 E- Cig Exaggerations that Keep People Smoking


You all are probably well aware of the controversy that surrounds electronic cigarettes.  Anything that is relatively new and takes away from the tobacco industry is obviously going to be attacked from all ends.  As a result, there are many myths and exaggerations that float around regarding the e-cig health and safety.

Below are four common vaping embellishments that you may hear from people who are traditional smokers.

1. Electronic cigarettes are a fire hazard.

E-cigs do contain a heating element, but unlike cigarettes, there is no combustion process or open flame. Cigarette users are much more likely to start a fire through user careless.  With an e-cig, as long as you buy products that are high quality and act responsibly with the batteries and e-liquid, you shouldn’t have a problem.

2. Electronic cigarettes contain antifreeze.

This may be one of the biggest e-cig exaggerations floating around.  Let’s hope that any company that is reputable in any way would not put anti-freeze in their products.  Propylene glycol, which is used in the liquid of e-cigs, is often found in medications and various foods.  Ethylene glycol is what is found in anti-freeze.  Big difference!

3. Vaping is more addictive than smoking.

This is simply not true.  Both contain nicotine, but with the e-cig you can reduce your nicotine levels at any time.  The vaping hobby may be more addictive in pleasure and flavor, but not due to nicotine. You can have cartridges ranging from 0 milligrams (mg) of nicotine to 18 mg.  It is completely your choice.

4. Vapor from e-cigs is same as smoke from traditional cigarettes.

Wrong!  Cigarette smoke releases carcinogens into the air with every puff.  When a person vapes, the cloudlike fog they release is actually odorless water vapor.

Don’t listen to the exaggerations, myths and lies out there circulating about electronic cigarettes.  If you have questions, EverSmoke is here to provide answers.  Our vaping products are an excellent alternative to traditional smoking with a variety of e-liquid flavors and starter kits that can help you begin the new journey of vaping.

E-Cigarettes Banned in National Parks

National Parks Ban Electronic CigarettesThe great outdoors. Nature’s way of telling us to slow down, relax and immerse ourselves within its surroundings. Our nation’s National Parks are the perfect venue for a good time away from the concrete chaos, and it never hurts to have a little motivation in the chillax department with a good vape in hand. Yet the aforementioned is all fine and well, so long as the vape stays out of site – as in off-site.

As of now, the National Park Service has issued a ban on all electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), better known as e-cigs and vaporizers, within the U.S. National Parks system.

Put into action immediately, National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis released a statement citing the health of visitors and employees as the goal behind this regulation. This law echoes the National Park’s stance on traditional cigarettes, which have been entirely banned from use on all National Park property.  This extends to all government facilities, concessions, and vehicles. As noble of a regulation it may appear to be, it is misleading for a government agency to institute a law based on comparison to an entirely separate product, which is used in an entirely different manner.

What the National Parks Service fails to recognize is that the vapor emitted from ENDS, or electronic nicotine delivery systems, is an entirely separate, entirely different substance. It is not in any way, nor can it be classified in any way, as smoke. No tobacco is contained in these products, no tobacco is lit with fire, burned, or emitted in any way. If the aim was to legitimately protect guests and employees from smoke, (which is obviously proven to be dangerous) the measure should have been tailored to restrict smoke. Vapor, on the other has not, and it is an absolutely misrepresentation to classify it the same. Doing so removes options for visitors who choose not to smoke, yet still wish to enjoy an alternative product.

The bottom line here is that while e-cigarette regulations are necessary, particularly regarding  e-cig regulations and public usage, it is a sad day when government entities create regulations that are based on erroneous assumptions, and leave users without options. Perhaps this is an instance that will get modified in the future. Until then, however, vapers will have to enjoy the National Parks vapor-less.


Heat & E-Cig Batteries: Not a Great Combo

e-cigarette batteries & heatE-cigarette batteries, like all lithium ion batteries, are not designed to handle extremes; whether it’s weather or humidity, they really don’t tolerate dramatically high or drastically cold temperatures well. So, if you find yourself living in areas where temperatures are known to hit extremes; hot or cold, with the possibility of severe humidity, (you know, basically anywhere that does not include perfectly moderate, dry conditions) the following info will surely be to your benefit.

Heat is particularly detrimental to the lithium ion batteries of electronic cigarettes. Some of the common issues known to arise from exposure to extreme heat include sudden halts in performance, the device failing to work, damage to the device, melting, bubbles, bulging, warping, expansion, contracting, the presence of smoke (not vapor!), sparks, flames, and even the possibility of explosions in the most rare and isolated incidents!

One thing to keep in mind about temperatures and your e-cigarettes is that extremes in temps can happen anywhere, and at any time. It is not a strictly a situation you’re going to run into exclusively by leaving your device in your car, parked in the sun, with all windows rolled up. Obviously, that’s a recipe built for disaster, but consider your back porch, an enclosed bathroom with the shower running, a sauna, your pocket if you’re outdoors on a hot, sweaty day; these can be everyday situations depending on your location, so in terms of the long-term usage of your e-cigarette batteries, consider it part of the package to keep the effects of the temperatures in consideration. Room temp is best, if you’re ever unsure!

The bottom line with e-cigarette batteries is that if you treat them properly, maintain a good regimen of care, they will last an exceptionally long time and will perform completely up to the standards you expect. However, considering all lithium ion batteries, e-cigarette or otherwise, are sensitive to temperature extremes, do your very best to keep them in moderation. Consider your e-cigarettes an investment; make your money go as far as you can.

Happy National Dog Day!

Happy National Dog Day!In honor of National Dog Day, which happens to be today, we thought we’d give you a few friendly reminders about how important it is to not smoke cigarettes around your pets. If you need a perfectly valid reason to quit smoking and switch to electronic cigarettes instead, how about doing it for the sake of your pets? If you love your doggy, or kitty, or any other animal you’ve brought into your home as a forever friend, think about the risks smoke exposure puts them at. Did you know:

  • Second hand smoke is not good for anyone, including your pets. It is loaded with toxins and carcinogens, which can lead to a higher risk of cancer.

  • Animals are at risk for exposure to 3rd hand smoke as well, which is the exposure that comes from the by products of second hand smoke, such as the particles of smoke that settle on their fur, as well as the surfaces they come into direct contact with. Through grooming, they can ingest all of the things that accumulate on them. Think about it.

  • Dogs are highly susceptible to allergic dermatitis, which is a skin condition characterized by aggravatingly itchy, inflamed skin, and smoking can contribute to this.

  • Dogs are also susceptible to a wide array of different cancers, such as lung and nasal, so why up their risk factor by exposing them to smoke?

  • Cigarette butts can be seriously dangerous to dogs, and pretty much all animals, so if you smoke, please always do your best to keep your butts out of their reach. Swallowing cigarette butts can cause choking, intestinal blockages, and exposure to all varieties of the toxic chemicals stored within the butts.

  • E-liquid is also a danger, so just as in the case with children, do everything possible to keep e-juice out of the reach of pets. Nicotine poisoning is a real threat; don’t even allow the chance for it to happen to your fur-babies.

So, happy National Dog Day, particularly to those of you who share your lives with a four-legged friend! Protect your loyal companion by keeping up your e-cigarette etiquette and do everything you can to keep the smoke out of their breathing space. One of the many beautiful things about vaping is that there is no tobacco, and therefore none of the smoke that accompanies burning it; your pup will thank you in the long run with endless love!
