Tobacco Giant Philip Morris Entering Fast Growing Electronic Smoking Market

A few days ago, Philip Morris International announced it’s getting into the e-cigarette business, after dismissing the product in July according to The Washington Post. The tobacco giant will start selling e-cigarettes which directly compete with its tobacco product, since nicotine vapor is gaining popularity as an alternative to smoking by a growing number of Americans.

The world’s biggest tobacco company is spending $100 million to develop e-cigarettes that could destroy its 160 year legacy in the tobacco business.

There are three main reasons why Philip Morris is getting to the vapor smoking market:

  1. Competitors are already making e-cigarettes. A few of Philip Morris’s competitors have either developed their own e-cigarette or bought startups in the fast-growing electronic smoking market.
  2. Tobacco cigarettes are already disappearing. Fewer Americans are smoking than ever before, according to Gallup. Tobacco has been lucrative for well over 100 years, but companies are accepting the fact that products are facing a long-term decline. They have no choice but to develop a new product.
  3. The international tobacco market is slowing down. Philip Morris has always had strong name recognition, deep market penetration and the addictive nature of its tobacco cigarettes has made it internationally popular. 30 percent of its market share has been primarily in Southeast Asia. But the “cash-generating machine,” as Morningstar has referred to it, has started to fail in sales.

The key reasons Philip Morris wants a piece of the e-cigarette market is that the product doesn’t have many of the social and health challenges tobacco smoking faces but still deliver nicotine that users crave.

Celebrate the New Year with a New Lifestyle!

eversmokInHandElectronic cigarettes have become the “it” thing for smokers who’ve lost their taste for traditional cigarettes. Do you think this is the year you will be making the switch? It’s almost a cliché how many smokers make quitting their resolution, however why quit when you can switch? Here are a few good reasons to do it now, because e-cigs are hotter than ever, and we’re sure you won’t regret it!

-Won’t you feel better knowing you are not smoking tobacco anymore? Traditional cigarettes contain over 4,000 different toxic chemical additives, in addition to tobacco itself which leaves behind tar, smells awful, and makes a mess.

-You’ll smile more radiantly. Whether it’s from the happiness you get from no longer smoking traditional cigarettes, or because your teeth look nicer without the tobacco stains, we bet you’ll be more inclined to smile!

-You’ll save a lot of money. We all know cigarettes are crazy expensive, and with electronic cigarettes costing a fraction in comparison, we are sure you’ll love the savings.

-E-cigs give you more control of your smoking, and we know you’ll like having more of a say when it comes to when and where you smoke. You also get to choose what kind of e-cig model you use, what flavors you want, and what nicotine level you’d like.

-You can permanently say goodbye to ashtrays and cigarette butts. You will absolutely love how much cleaner e-cigarettes are, and how much less work they take.

-Your conscience will rest more easily knowing you are doing one less thing to harm the environment; yes just smoking cigarettes is bad for the planet. E-cigs are reusable, and they do not produce a fraction of the waste that cigarettes create.

-You’ll officially be done with tobacco cigarettes! Among all of the many positives of switching to electronic cigarettes, just being through with them, and able to live a cleaner, smoke-free lifestyle will be more than worth it!

Enjoying E-cigs in the Company of Others

Smoking-e-cigarette_1Cigarettes are not people friendly. They create a lot of problems, and usually you have to use them outdoors to keep things safe, convenient, and nontoxic for others.

This is one of the many huge reasons electronic cigarettes are replacing them; they offer smokers a lot more options and a lot more versatility when using them. Quite importantly, they are able to be used around those who are not fond of traditional cigarette smoke without the same problems; think second hand smoke and smelly fumes.

E-cigs go anywhere, and they can be used quite discretely. I have seen people using them just about everywhere in public, and have never witnessed an issue. Having been exposed firsthand, I know personally there is no smell at all when those clouds of vapor are exhaled. While the looks and feeling imitate a traditional cigarette, for bystanders they are nothing alike.

When you are at a gathering, it can be annoying and difficult to always have to step outside to have a smoke. It can break up great conversations, and take you away from what you’d rather be doing, like enjoying the company of others, or relaxing wherever you happen to be. Being able to stay where you are, and vape without inconveniencing anyone makes enjoying your time that much better.

With the popularity of e-cigs growing, they are becoming more and more accepted in public places. Most nonsmokers don’t take issue with electronic cigarettes, however keep in mind that not everyone is completely familiar with them yet. If you happen to come across someone who is unsure about your e-cigarettes, and happens to be reluctant in being exposed, all you have to do is explain how very different they are from standard cigarettes.

When it comes to smoking, a good time can be a great time if you switch to e-cigarettes. You’ll enjoy yourself more, your nonsmoking friends will thank you, and you’ll be able to concentrate on what’s most important: having fun!

Some Tips for Making the Switch

130023977__436746cIf you are a smoker, or a former smoker, you know that tobacco cigarettes are one of the hardest habits to ditch. So many smokers have embraced the possibilities of electronic cigarettes, and they have found an incredible compromise with them; similar feel, similar taste, and nicotine without the tobacco smoke. However, when starting out, there is a bit of a learning curve that users should be aware of, because understanding how these products work can give you a much better end result. Here are some tips to keep in mind of, just to make the switch to e-cigarettes go more successfully for you.

-Go with a reputable electronic cigarette brand. Quality varies, and some brands are better than others. Choose wisely.

-Don’t be dismayed by the cost of starter kits; these costs make themselves up in time, and cartridges are considerably less expensive than cigarette packs.

-Disposable e-cigarettes are a great way to try e-smoking at an affordable price. So are EverSmoke Express Kits.

-Learn about your e-cigarettes. You should soak up all the information you can; learn how to use them most effectively. Learn about different techniques to keep them in good shape. Learn about how to get the most powerful throat hit. It will all contribute to a better overall experience.

-Don’t expect your tobacco cigarette cravings to disappear immediately. Of course, it varies from one user to the next, but if you prepare yourself to deal with cravings you will be able to handle them better.

-Transitioning to e-cigarettes is easier for some more than others; for some it goes quickly and within a week they’ve made the switch completely. For others it can take a few months.

-If you think switching will be difficult for you, allow yourself time to slowly lessen your tobacco use while alternating with e-cigarettes until you’re comfortable.

-When you’ve been smoking traditional cigarettes for an extended amount of time, your body becomes used to carcinogens and loads of toxins. Your body needs time to adjust to not having them.

We know how difficult cigarettes are to leave behind, and we want to help you enjoy e-smoking. We want switching to vapor to be easy on you, and hopefully a step towards becoming totally smoke-free. Hopefully these tips for switching to e-cigs have been helpful!

How Much Nicotine is Enough?

IMAG0721When you’re choosing a nicotine level, you may get somewhat confused not knowing where to begin. How much is truly enough? Here is some insight to help guide you along if you’re stuck wondering where to begin without losing any satisfaction when your cartridges arrive!

EverSmoke cartridges are designed in 5 different nicotine strengths: 24mg, 18mg, 12mg, 6mg, and 0mg.

Some people find that starting from the strongest level, as they get a feel for it works well. However, in the same light, 24mg cartridges are very potent, and may even be too strong for some smokers. Other users prefer the method of starting at 0mg and working their way up to a heavier amount, to see how things work with less nicotine.

Another general rule of thumb for smokers is to compare their cigarettes to e-cigarettes. For example if you currently smoke unfiltered reds, or very strong cigarettes, go for the strongest nicotine. It’ll agree with you best. 18mg cartridges are very strong as well, but a tad lower than using 24mg’s. If you smoke lights, 12mg cartridges will do. Ultra lights, 6mg will be comparable. If you smoke nicotine-free cigarettes, then 0mg cartridges will obviously be what you want!

Because our cartridges are sold in packs of 15, 30, and 45, when you’re first starting out we highly encourage users to order smaller packs of different nicotine levels and flavors to find what agrees with them. We really see the benefit in trying a few different things to get to know our products for the best experience possible.

And, even after you figure it all out, find your favorite flavors and find the nicotine level of your dreams, every now and then, reevaluate where you stand. In time, you may find dropping your nicotine level is easy to do, and may even increase your satisfaction. Same goes for upping it. Transitioning to e-cigs can be easy, and very enjoyable! We offer really diverse products, and we really encourage open-mindedness for the most satisfaction.

 

Taking Care of Your E-Cigarettes

While e-cigarettes are generally low maintenance products, there is good reason to take good care of them, and sometimes go a little out of your way to show them some love. After all, they do offer so many benefits, and they work exceptionally hard to satisfy your nicotine cravings. Fortunately, taking care of your e-cigarettes does not have to be a science, or take a dramatic amount of energy.

EverSmoke e-cigarettes are technological marvels, and they are designed to be exceptionally durable. However, knowing how to take care of them from day one will help make them last as long as possible and sure to give you the great performance and exquisite vapor you’ve come to expect.

Start from the Beginning

Good care should start as soon as you get your e-cigarettes. When you first receive your starter kit, while you may be tempted to start vaping right away, don’t. Instead, charge your batteries up to 100% before you start, as this ensures your batteries’ performance over the long run.

When it comes to charging after the first time, the best way to know it’s time to charge up is when the indicator light shows that it’s needed. This will be before your battery gets down to 0%, which is the ideal time to charge for long lasting battery strength.

Concerning Cartridges

Do not try to open cartridges; it will most likely damage them!

Cartridges are going to be continuously changed out. When attaching them, make sure not to tighten them too tightly, because this will cause them to be difficult to remove, and they will not function up to par.

When it comes to storing your cartridges, cool, dry places are ideal. It’s best to keep them away from direct sunlight, high temperatures, and moisture for the best functioning and performance.

So there you have it! A few tips to prolong your e-cigarettes and ensure they offer you plenty of vapor, great performance, excellent flavor, and a very cigarette-like experience! Hopefully these tips will come in handy, and give you the kind of satisfaction you’re deserving!

Great Reasons to Make the Switch to E-Cigs

girl_smoking_electronic_cigarette10-198x300Traditional cigarettes are beginning to look increasingly old fashioned compared to e-cigs. If you’re still smoking tobacco, there are some pretty poignant reasons why vaping has become so popular. Here is a look at some of the top reasons making the switch makes life better.

Designed with Similar Appeal

E-cigs look, taste, and feel really similar. They were in fact, made to recreate the experience, and much attention was implemented to come as close as possible. While most smokers tend to stick to what they know, many are realizing the immense pleasure that lies in electronic smoking. The feeling is remarkably close, with a draw that has great resistance, a throat hit that packs a punch, and intense flavor that taste like cigarettes (or ventures off into new territory). The body of the e-cigs are made to look and feel like the real thing, only they last a whole lot longer, offer amazing technology, and are much easier to handle.

Vape Wherever You Want

So imagine, by vaping you don’t have to give up any of the aspects you love, and you have the ability to truly enjoy all the sensations without the tobacco, smoke, horrendous smell, and lingering odor. You can use them nearly anywhere, and you ultimately gain a great amount of freedom. Without any second hand smoke, the options are endless. Most public places have no bans of them, and many restaurants, bars, and nightclubs openly welcome e-cig use!

E-Cigs Save Money

Cigarette smoking is an unbearably expensive habit. Not only are the prices high per pack, the toll they exhaust on your health and the additional costs necessary just to maintain the habit are mind numbing. When you can drop less than $100 on an e-cig starter kit that includes a hefty assortment of cartridges, each of which lasts between 1-2 packs of cigarettes, the costs more than even out. In fact, they go way down when you switch!

How to Get Started with Electronic Cigarettes

eversmoke_starter_kitIf electronic cigarettes are on the mind, and you are thinking about making the switch to the electronic side, you should really do your homework ahead of time to have the best possible experience. You need to know where to find the best products and services, and you’ll need to explore the different products to see what will fit your needs.

Where to Start?

The internet, of course! The amount of research that can be done, and the amount of information awaiting you is limitless. If you want to know about something, chances are you’ll be able to find out. Finding trustworthy e-cigarette reviews will really be helpful, as it will give insight as to what customers are saying about specific products. You’ll get a lot of info, and learn a lot based just on what others have experienced.

When choosing a brand, go for one with a good reputation and a well rounded selection of products. Look for things like a 30-day money back guarantee, warranty options, and good customer service.

Once you’ve figured out the brand you want, and the kind of products you are interested in, it’s time to invest in an electronic cigarette starter kit. They aren’t called “starter kits” just for kicks!

While all the accessory and flavor options may throw you off a bit, remember that these are there to be useful and enjoyable. You may not be ready for everything all at once, but it is suggested you try a “flavor sampler” when you order cartridges so that you can experience all the flavors you have at your disposal.

How Expensive is it?

Vaping does not have to be costly, in fact most of the time, electronic cigarettes save money. You have the option of many different starter kits, from budget to fully loaded with accessories, cartridges, and all the bells and whistles, and the majority of them are priced appropriately. Another aspect to keep in mind is that cartridges cost considerably less expensive than traditional cigarettes, with one cartridge being equal to approximately 1.5 cigarette packs, or 30 cigarettes.

Millions of people have switched to electronic cigarettes, and there are many reasons why they’ve turned out to be so successful. The digital aspect really resonates with today’s lifestyle, and having an alternative to tobacco has given smokers exactly what they’ve wanted. Making the switch does not have to be difficult or costly, and if you do your homework, it can go over extremely well!
