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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

Benefits to Switching: A Healthier Lifestyle

-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?

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.

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.

E-Liquids: Childproof Bottles Are About to Happen Everywhere

Childproofing Nicotine E-LiquidWhile the current state of regulations that involve electronic cigarettes and all related products is far from being set in stone, one area that has received complete and overwhelming approval from all sides is in regards to e-liquid companies and brands carrying them, being required to have child-proof caps on all bottles to prevent unnecessary accidents. While no concrete laws are set in place yet, certain bills requiring companies to have child-proof caps on e-liquid bottles are being reviewed across the country.

The subject of nicotine liquid getting into the hands of children has been a hot topic for the industry for a while now, and with the popularity of e-liquid usage consistently on the rise, and more and more brands emerging, and more people vaping in general, this regulation could not come at a better time.

Despite how enjoyable nicotine is, it does come with some risk and it is very responsible and wise to put the safety of children first. The risks come whether the liquid is handled with bare hands, or gets accidentally ingested, and while for adults the consequences may not be that bad, for children in this predicament, they could be highly dangerous, and in rare cases, even deadly.

While EverSmoke is a brand that does not sell any liquids individually, per se, we are fully in support of this type of reasonable e-cigarette regulation. Our line of e-cigarette cartridges do contain liquids in them, however it is very difficult to access the liquid, unlike with bottles of e-liquid, which can be easily mistaken for other things. Our sister brand, VaporFi specializes in nicotine e-liquids, and they have long been using child-proof caps on their bottles, seeing it as the right thing to do.

Electronic cigarettes, e-liquids, and all products of this genre are intended to be used by adults, and never by children, so taking measures to further keep them from being used by people who should not be using them is the responsible way to go.
