More Cities Proposing to Ban E-Cigs

cities proposing to ban e-cigs

What’s eating Gilbert Ross, the Medical and Executive Director of the American Council on Science and Health and an M.D.? Apparently, it’s lawmakers and mayors in a number of major U.S. cities who are blindly jumping on the bandwagon to restrict the use of e-cigarettes.

In his Forbes’ article entitled, “Big U.S. Cities Foment Baseless, Superstitious Fear of Electronic Cigarettes,” Dr. Ross calls out city and state officials who are giving into bullying and propagating irrational fear because of pressure from other big cities.

“Whatever became of urban sophistication, especially on matters scientific and technological?” said Ross, who goes on to liken the craze to a witch hunt—with e-cigs being burned.

According to Ross, at first the Chicago City Council held strong against the demands of Mayor Rahm Emanueal, who was on a mission to ban public e-cig use last December. However, a month later, the Council caved into the Mayor’s bullying and forced e-smokers to stand out in the cold with tobacco cigarette smokers.

This move left Dr. Ross fuming:

Agenda-driven and conflicted opponents cry, “Regulate e-cigs!” They mean to regulate them off the market and into the hands of Big Tobacco. I say, Yes, regulate them, by all means: age restrictions, ingredient labels, and good manufacturing practices all need to be mandated. But making e-cigs inaccessible for desperate smokers by inane restrictions will send this message: “Keep on smoking.”

To those who say, “We just don’t know what might happen,” I respond, we sure do know what happens with the real ones: almost half a million dead American smokers every year.

Thus far, three major cities have established measures to include e-cigs in their public bans, starting with New York last December. Chicago followed suit shortly after by approving a proposal to ban e-cig use in indoor public areas like offices and within a certain distance of building entrances.

Now, the latest news out of L.A. indicates that the trend to restrict e-smoking has hit the west coast as well. A committee on the Los Angeles City Council is currently drafting a proposal to ban e-cigs in public places—including parks, recreational areas, farmer’s markets, beaches, bars, nightclubs and outdoor dining areas. Interestingly, vaping lounges and movie sets would be exempt from the proposed ban (much to Leonardo DiCaprio’s relief, undoubtedly).

To oppose the e-cig restrictions being discussed in L.A., or any other city for that matter, we encourage you to voice your concerns by calling your City Council Representative and telling them how e-smoking has affected your life.

E-Cigarettes: The Only Way to Smoke Indoors

electronic-cigarettes-shopWhile there is endless discussion on why traditional cigarettes are entirely awful for one’s health, the fact that they are so unbelievably unhealthy for your home can often go overlooked. Many e-smokers know this very well, for having switched to e-cigarettes, they can clearly see through the smoke and appreciate the ways their home is much cleaner and more comfortable when vaping.

In the same ways that cigarettes wreak havoc on the insides of the body, they can really do a number on the interior of a home. In fact, just like in the body, there are times the damage from tobacco inside of a home can be irreparable, which is never good considering a home is typically an investment.

The following are four of the main ways traditional cigarettes can cause damage to your home, and why smokeless cigarettes can help lessen the burden.

Stained Surfaces In Your Home

Tobacco stains on walls and ceilings are obvious, but in addition to these, there are countless other surfaces in your home that can bear the damage of smoke. Floors, ceiling fans, furniture, curtains, and even wallpaper can be ruined, need repairs or replacing as a result. As electronic cigarettes contain no tobacco, produce no smoke, and release few substances, they do not leave lingering remnants that will stain or destroy.

The Air Conditioner

Not as obviously noticeable as the walls or furniture, however just as important is your A/C and heating system, especially if you reside in an extreme climate. As these systems run by filtering air through a filter, smoking creates an excess of particles to filter, and this can cause you’re A/C system to work that much harder and go through filters that much quicker, which if not done regularly, can cause the machine to break down. E-Cigarette vapor contains very little substance whatsoever, and it breaks down effortlessly, never posing a problem to air conditioners.

Electronic Items

Cigarette smoke can cause electronic components to corrode. Because it clings to every surface it comes into contact with, especially those that are emitting heat (like computers), smoke and tar will accumulate, and cause additional dust to stick to it. This causes build up over time, which can be potentially dangerous. If you can avoid adding to the problem, since dust occurs naturally, why not do so? E-cigarettes leave nothing behind, as vapor dissipates without a trace and will not encourage dust to stick and settle on your electronic devices.


Cigarettes are a fire hazard, and a single cigarette can be responsible for huge, deadly fires, smoke damage, and additional serious destruction. Estimates from the US Fire administration put deaths as a result of cigarette-caused fires at about 1000 per year. A great way to avoid this is to opt for the electronic alternative, as they work without fire, leaving no risk of flame or hot falling cherries.

E-Cigarettes take so many of the issues that accompany traditional cigarettes and render them obsolete. They are the obvious, more convenient choice if you plan on smoking indoors, and they do not leave behind consequences to deal with years afterwards.

The E-Cig Weight Loss Program

An article I read recently suggests an interesting idea: using flavored electronic cigarettes to lose weight. Evidently, folks like Aja Duff are doing just that.

In an attempt to lose baby weight and to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes at the same time, Duff is turning to flavored e-cigs as a solution.

But can smoking flavored electronic cigarettes satisfy your sweet tooth and help shed a few pounds?

Duff said, “I still eat a little here and there, but not what I used to. It suppresses that feeling because you have all the different flavors and it kind of tricks your taste buds and stomach.”

The article doesn’t state how much weight she has lost, but Duff’s comments seem to suggest she is having an amount of success.

Vape store owner Joel Vinson currently sells the product he credits with helping him quit traditional cigarettes. He has dozens of vials of flavored liquids, and he has become a sort of “mixologist” who specializes in creating exotic dessert and cocktail reminiscent flavors.

For happy hours, he offers a candy lime martini flavor. Vinson’s store is also popular among diabetics seeking a sweet tooth fix.

Flavored electronic cigs—with zero nicotine—can act as a substitute for the sweets diabetics can’t actually eat.

Duff and Vinson are just a few of the many who are thinking outside the box when it comes to the use of electronic cigarettes.

You have to admit—using flavored electronic cigarettes to lose weight would be highly popular if it works. Whether or not it works is also likely to be highly dependent on the individual. Will power is always a factor.

Duff is certainly aware of the (illogical) controversy surrounding e-cigs and the supposed possible long-term health effects of inhaling the e-cig vapors, but not enough to stop her efforts to quit tobacco and to lose weight.

The appeal of using e-cigs ( as a method to lose weight is simply going to outweigh any fear of risks, and may, in fact, help solidify the device’s reputation as the useful tool that it is.

Introducing Our Sister Brand: VaporZone

454642333_640We would like to introduce to you our sister brand, VaporZone. VaporZone presents a new concept for our company, and adds further diversity to the electronic cigarette market with revolutionary new electronic cigarette devices. Read on to learn more about this exciting company, and feel free to check out their line of offerings at

VaporZone was created to expand the offerings in the market of e-cigarettes. As vaporizer type e-cigarettes have gotten exceedingly popular, many users have moved on from more basic models. Vaporizers offer powerful throat hits, and much larger vapor production levels than other types of e-cigarettes. While there are many different varieties of vaporizers and vaporizer type products, seeing a major lack of quality among them left a gaping void to fill. VaporZone sought to create a great selection of different vaporizer models, that each have different features, different battery strengths, and the ability to be used with a very wide selection of different accessories. Serious electronic cigarette users are big on quality; no one wants to be replacing products all the time. Dependability, expert technology and design, as well as top performance go a very far distance in this industry, and what VaporZone did was create products that do it all, and at a very good price.

Another aspect VaporZone looked to differentiate themselves amongst the crowd was to develop the highest level of e-liquids available. There are countless companies carrying e-liquids, especially on the internet, however there is a general lack of quality there too. Most companies choose to have their manufacturing done in China, compromising standards due to a lack of quality control over products meant for inhalation. VaporZone’s e-liquids are manufactured in the USA, of the highest quality, USP Kosher-grade ingredients available, specifically for inhalation.

VaporZone’s e-liquids come in more than 50 different flavors, and they can be custom blended however the customer wants. This gives further control to users, who will no longer feel limited by quantity or quality of selection. The number of flavor combinations is nearly limitless, resulting in approximately 30,000 different possibilities. Many customers are ecstatic about this, as they are able to have exactly what they want in their vaping experience, exactly how they want it.

So if you are looking for an upgrade on your current electronic cigarettes, or want the very best available to you before you begin vaping, have a look at what VaporZone has to offer. If you like EverSmoke, you will love our new sister!

The Fusion of Vaping and Art


E-cig veterans already know that there is an art to vaping. However, as of recently, the fusion of e-cigarettes and art seems to have become a growing trend.

A brand new vape shop in Minneapolis, Minn., Infinite Vapor, opened up its doors to the public last month. But right from the start, shoppers could tell this wasn’t your typical supply shop or vapor lounge.

The store’s founders, Beecher Vaillaincourt and Gavin Rydell, wanted to create a unique­, stylized space for the fast-growing vaping community in the Twin Cities area that brought together two key facets of the human experience: recreation and culture. To do so, they enlisted the help of Tricia Khutoretsky, curator of a local art gallery. Tricia styled the shop with a collection of graphics and street art-inspired screenprints by several local artists, plus a large-scale abstract wallpaper mural.

The final result is stunning. As one reviewer put it: “[Infinite Vapor] combines electronic cigarettes with cutting edge art, so you can gape while you vape.”

Minnesota news source,—who posted photos of the shop’s avant-garde and imaginative interior on their website—reported that the shop “looks more like a slick design studio than a head shop.”

Not to be outdone by the Twin Cities, a New York City museum has recently announced that they will be hosting a forum on the topic of vaping in the modern world.

Entitled “This is the ENDD: The E-cigarette in Context,” the program will be showcased on Feb. 22 in Lower Manhattan’s state-of-the-art New Museum. The presentation will stage a group of artists and critics to present analyses—historical, political, social, anticipatory—of e-cigarette technology and the discursive field that is emerging around it.

The program will be put on by NYC’s art resource group Rhizome, which receives support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Poets and Writers, Inc., the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts—an ironic happenstance considering NYC’s (or rather: Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s) recent decision to ban vaping anywhere smoking is already against the law.

Artists Matthew Dryhurst and Brian Rogers will begin the forum with a history of the e-cigarette, followed by Public Health Specialist C.A.B. Fredericks on health debates raging around the world, art critic Orit Gat on vape shops, a presentation on the “psychological drives after the cigarette,” and much more. Visit the New Museum website to learn more about the program or get tickets for the event.

It was the famous French artist Henri Matisse who once said: “Creativity takes courage.”

Our hope is that more innovative vapers like Vaillaincourt and Rydell start to discover their creative courage, fusing art into e-cigarettes ( more and more.

Reducing Stress With E-Cigarettes

imagesLife is stressful enough, and it’s no surprise that so many smokers pick up tobacco as a way of dealing with it. Unfortunately, with tobacco, you typically add a lot more stress onto your plate because while that nicotine rush can do so much to take the edge off, it also adds a really expensive cost, a very unhealthy habit, and the stress of not being able to smoke wherever you want. Read on to see why e-cigarettes are the better alternative to tobacco!

Nicotine: Nicotine has a brilliant way of calming the nerves and giving a completely pleasant sensation. It feels amazing, there’s no doubt about it, and when using e-cigarettes, you can enjoy the feeling without the guilt of tobacco.

Flavor: Flavor is a personal thing, and when it really resonates with you, it can be a wonderful stress reliever. Whether Peach Passion is your thing, or you go for classic tobacco, when you love it, it can be just what you need when things get hectic.

Experience: The experience of vaping is really relaxing and calming. You know how it is when you smoke a cigarette when you’re stressed, they calm you right down. The same goes for e-cigs, the puffing, inhaling, exhaling, and the feeling of the nicotine taking its effect can be the perfect antidote to stress.

Cost: The high price of cigarettes can be dreadful, and can add stress to your daily life every time you slide your debit card to cover the cost of a single pack. Lucky for you, electronic alternatives cost much less. EverSmoke’s Home Delivery Program offers additional savings on cartridge refills, and delivers them to you so you never risk running out.

Convenience: Inconvenience can be a major source of stress, and traditional cigarettes are quite inconvenient. E-cigarettes are much more convenient, allowing you to smoke in many public places, around most people without the issue of second hand smoke, and they are much simpler and cleaner to use.

While traditional tobacco cigarettes can exacerbate your stress, it’s pretty darn wonderful that e-cigarettes do a lot to relieve your stress in more ways than one. Thinking about switching? Here’s just one more reason!

Vaping Enters the Literary World

vape mania

History has been made once again. If you thought you were going to be the first person to write a novel with a character who vapes, it’s too late.

A new book available through Amazon, Vape Mania: A Newbie’s Guide to the Evils of the Electronic Cigarette, claims to be “the first full-length literary work that has a narrative with a vaper as the main protagonist and vaping as the central theme.”

The 166-page book was published January 27, 2014, under the moniker “Melvin Provario.” The website marketing the book is cleverly titled Vaporacle. (The letter “o” is represented with an oval skull face.)

The front cover has pop-culture icons above a blaze of flames, and includes an endorsement from the “institute for preservation of the institution of cigarettes (IPIC).” The book sells for $9.99 plus a $2 shipping fee. PayPal buttons are included on the site as well as an Amazon link, which for some reason is slightly cheaper.

It should be noted that the back cover includes a parental advisory for “Explicit Vaping” and states the following: “WARNING: this memoir explicitly illustrates the possessive power of this devil drug in graphic detail and is therefore not intended for the faint of heart.”

“Enter the Seedy World of Chronic Vaping Addiction” is prominently proclaimed along with “Follow one man’s downward spiral into the seedy world of vaping addiction.”

Judging by the promo text on the website, Vape Mania hits the funny bone straight on. “Reader responses” posted on the site proclaim “I laughed so hard my tank cracked” (by ‘Professor Kanger, MVP’).

An Amazon reviewer wrote: “The main character is the perfect personification of the mass hysteria represented by the anti-vaping crowd. The commentary by “IPIC” is equally as funny, but also scary because there are really people who think that way.”

The author’s, Melvin Provario, self-description is ghoulishly haunting:  “As I write this only a few stubborn strands of hair cling to my scalp…. My eyeballs protrude like those of a lifeless doll from amidst the filthy flesh clinging to my chiseled skull. My ears have become pink and pointy like those of a pig…. Yet I have no one to blame but myself…. If only I had never put that first electronic cigarette to my mouth, I would still be the man that I once was.”

According to Vaporacle, Melvin is currently in hiding and is “hard at work documenting the instances that occurred after the tragic events depicted in Vape Mania, for a possible follow-up memoir.”

If you haven’t read an entertaining book recently, you may want to give Vape Mania a try. BEWARE! You may experience side-splitting laughter.

Tobacco Industry Prepares for Change with Altria’s Purchase of Green Smoke

vaping_jan_036-In recent electronic cigarette news, tobacco giant Altria announced that they purchased the Green Smoke brand through their subsidiary, Nu Mark LLC. At a price approximated at $110 million, with an expected closing sometime in the second quarter, this is major headway for the e-cigarette industry.

While they are not the first tobacco company to expand into the e-cigarette market, the move is significant because they are one of the largest, and Green Smoke is one of the most known brands of alternative tobacco products. What this sale signifies on a larger scale is how big electronic cigarettes are getting, and how much competition they’ve put on the tobacco industry.

Nearly two years ago, in April of 2012, Lorillard expanded into the e-cigarette market, becoming the first tobacco company to do so. They acquired the brand Blu, and set the trend for other tobacco companies to start cutting their losses from smokers switching to e-cigs, by joining the competition.

While there is still plenty of speculation from skeptics in regards to the safety, standards, and research regarding them, time continues to show that consumers trust these products and are fully aware of the facts about e-cigarettes. They have experienced such positive results that they are only furthering the industry and inspiring others to do so. Along these same lines, the impending FDA regulations for e-cigarettes will hopefully prove to be promising, giving further credibility to the industry with quality standards and monitoring for safety.

With big tobacco moving into the e-cigarette market, it only solidifies the strength of alternative cigarettes as an industry. Business predictions slate e-cigarettes to overpass tobacco cigarette sales entirely within the next decade. Smokeless cigarette sales are expected to hit around $1.7 billion this year, so these numbers are quite promising. The recent purchase of Green Smoke only furthers this prediction, as the tobacco industry prepares for an electronic renaissance in the coming years.

5 Reasons Why Electric Cigarettes Make a Great Valentine’s Day Gift

valentine's day gift

Are you still looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day present?

For many people, February 14th is symbolic of love—a day for lovers to express their feelings in the form of gifts and attention. But the problem is that it isn’t always easy deciding what to get your Valentine to show that you are thinking about them.

Here are five reasons why electric cigarettes—along with a romantic dinner and a magical night out perhaps—can make the perfect Valentine’s gift for your special someone:

A Unique Surprise

Flowers and chocolate are nice, but they are also predictable and standard. If you want a truly unique Valentine’s gift, then give your loved one the gift of vapor smoking.

It may sound bizarre at first, but an electric cigarette is a much more surprising and unique gift than the typical flowers and chocolate.

A Gift that Lasts

Electric cigarettes truly are the gift that keeps on giving. Roses wilt, and chocolate gets eaten, but electric cigarettes are reusable, durable, and don’t disappear.

Plus, if your Valentine smokes, what could be more romantic than showing that you are so concerned about their health that you want to give them a healthier alternative and spend many more happy years together?

No Odor

Nothing kills the mood more than foul-smelling odor. While smokers may grow accustomed to cigarette stink, non-smokers are typically quite put off by it. Tobacco smoke clings to clothes, hair, skin, and can make a person’s breath intolerable and unattractive.

However, since electric cigarettes don’t burn tobacco, there is no smoke whatsoever—only odorless water vapor. This way, smokers and non-smokers can enjoy each other’s company without offending the nose, and your smoke break won’t cloud the romantic atmosphere.

Tasty Flavors

Electric cigarettes come in a variety of mouth-watering flavors. This allows you and your loved one to add some sweetness or spice (whatever you prefer) to your smoking experience.

Rather than taste the bitterness of tobacco, cuddle up with your Valentine and try out delicious flavors like Very Vanilla, Cherry Crush, and Peach Passion. Or you can stick with the tobacco taste you have learned to love without the bad odor.

Budget Friendly

Okay, we admit, this may not seem particularly romantic at first, but perhaps it will when you get to go on a romantic trip later in the year that is funded by all of the money you saved from switching to electric cigarettes.

Sure, jewelry makes a wonderful gift, but it can also put stress on your bank account, and in turn, your relationship. Not to mention, guys:  what do you think she will like more – some pretty earrings or a cruise to the Bahamas?

If you would like to show your love this Valentine’s Day by giving your special someone an electric cigarette, then browse through our variety of vapor smoking starter kits. We have four different options, from basic to expert kits, so you can delight your loved one with a gift that perfectly suits their taste.

Roses are red,

Violets are blue.

If you want a Valentine’s Day to remember,

Then EverSmoke can help you!

Get the Romance on with E-Cigarettes

7d34e5c85163ab4803276f18eda1af60Smoking cigarettes got a reputation for being sexy back in the day, but overtime the luster faded to a dismal, tobacco-stained tarnish. Nowadays, the electronic alternative to smoking has really taken on the sexy status, and when it comes to romance, they are much better at pleasing!

For a holiday that lasts just one day a year, and is the epitome of all things love and romance, it’s always nice to make it special. Even if you’re single there are plenty of ways to have fun and enjoy it, without getting all sappy and mushy. If you’re the type who’d prefer to forget all about it regardless, hey, it’s your prerogative!

This Valentine’s Day, give your sweetie, or the sweetie you are admiring the gift of vapor. If you both smoke and want to go totally romantic, get a Couple’s Starter Kit Combo, and experience the bliss together.

When it comes to those you love, nothing means more than gifts that come from the heart; isn’t that what V-Day is all about anyway? E-cigs are a really meaningful gift, whether you are buying a starter kit for a spouse or partner, a best friend, a family member such as your parent or child (over the age of 18, who could use the updating to vapor) or a certain someone you are courting. With all of the conveniences, modern amenities, stylish gear, and fun flavors, e-cigs are such a great alternative to traditional cigarettes. Hence why they have become something of a hobby and lifestyle for many of their users, opposed to just an item to replace a former habit.

EverSmoke’s wide selection of e-cigarette starter kits, disposable e-cigarettes, Reusable Express Kits, and various other e-cigarette products can make the best Valentine’s Day gift, and one your sweetie will be using well after the 14th of February.
