E-Cigs VS Tobacco Cigs

If you stack the stats of electronic cigarettes vs tobacco cigarettes, who comes out on top? Here is a comparison, showing how the two compare in categories such as price, convenience, expenses, chemical exposure, environmental danger, and popularity.

Hollywood’s Impact: If judging by Hollywood, e-cigarettes are definitely the hotter option. Cigarettes have always been popular, but these days being healthy is much cooler than being ill, or dying an untimely death because of a cigarette habit. This list of stars who use e-cigs is always on the increase, while those who have died as a result of tobacco is extremely unfortunate.

Cost: What smoker does not bemoan the high cost of tobacco? Cigarettes are really expensive, and the average smoker spends between $150 and $300 every month on them. Yowza! Vapor smokers on the other hand, are known to spend somewhere in the vicinity of $30-$70 monthly, coming out to really great savings!

Smell: Cigarettes have quite a distinctive odor, and most people (smokers included) are not fond of it. Tobacco tar is a pretty disgusting substance, and in addition to smelling putrid, it also causes problems to nearly anything it sticks to. Anyone up for carcinogenic build on your lungs? Most likely not, and that’s why e-cigs are the smarter choice here also. No smell at all! The vapor that is released from them has no smell whatsoever, and it leaves behind no tar or anything else for that matter.

Medical and Dental Expenses: Cigarettes can make you pretty sick, and the costs can add up really quickly. A simple cold can become pretty exacerbated, leading to bronchitis and respiratory infections for smokers, and this equates to more hospital and doctor’s office visits, and a higher health care cost. People who are smokers are known to have more cases of tooth decay and stained teeth; cosmetic dental care can be quite pricey! E-smokers aren’t in the same risk category in either medical or dental needs, so another score for savings there too!

Fire Hazard: Tragically, lots of fires have been caused of the last century on account of cigarettes and falling ash, or butts not put out entirely. If something deals with fire, and burning paper and other material, it is a fire hazard. 10% of all fire-related deaths in the world are attributed to cigarettes, and that is a pretty scary statistic! Electronic cigarettes have NO fire hazard, and have no fire involved in their workings whatsoever. Much safer.

Chemical Exposure: Over 4,000 chemicals are found cigarettes, while EverSmoke’s e-cigs contain none.

Pollution: A massive amount of the world’s pollution comes from tobacco cigarettes, while e-cigs produce a very small amount of trash. Being a reusable product alone makes them better for the environment. A single e-cigarette cartridge lasts 15-20 times longer than a single ordinary cigarette, and it is the same size.

So there you have, back to back facts, and as you can see, electronic cigarettes come out on top every time, hands down. Are you ready to switch?

Holiday Travels and E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes can do wonders to help your holiday travels along, and they may be the very best part about your holidays… spending exaggerated amounts of time with extended family can always be jolly reminder why you choose to live on opposite ends of the state, or country! So sit back, kick those feet up, and read a little on why e-cigs are the way to smoke this holiday season if you plan to be doing any traveling!

Whether you have to take a long cross-country flight with three different layovers, or plan to spend a day’s worth of hours in the car on a road trip, electronic cigarettes are a dream come true when traveling! Despite whatever your trip may entail, they will have you covered. They can allow you to get your nicotine on in any situation. In the airport, waiting through layovers, flight delays, cancellations (you just have to expect them this time of year, with crazy freak snowstorms and all), through any of these crazy scenarios, electronic smokes will let you relax and unwind with your vapor, anywhere you choose. Also on the plus side, you won’t have to head outdoors to enjoy them either, because they are smokeless and odorless, no one near you will be forced to breathe in anything unwanted. Imagine being in a car for endless hours, at least you won’t have to wait on gas stops and restroom breaks for a smoke; you can do it all you want in the car without creating a hazard for other passengers.

Now on to the accessories and the different options you have when you are using alternative cigarettes during traveling. Having your batteries charged ahead of time is important, as is having a few batteries at your disposal. The Personal Charging Case will really come in handy in any travel circumstance and will keep your batteries charged and ready to go. E-cigarette disposables are also pretty handy, and they require no advanced planning; just open the package and vape. When the device is through, you toss it. They’re even simpler than traditional cigarettes!

With the holidays now upon us entirely, much of the nation is going to be traveling about. There will be food, drink, and plenty of fun, and always a good measure of stress, when dealing with tight schedules do things ever go exactly according to plans? I think not!

Electronic Cigarettes and Athletes

Smoking cigarettes hinders so many different parts of the body and can cause you to just not perform up to par. With a huge impact on heart and lung function, vigorous exercise can really be negatively affected. With their strict lifestyles of extreme discipline and dedication, professional athletes are the last people you would expect to be smoking. It may seem kind of crazy, but there are a good many who are smokers, and this is why they are turning to electronic cigs. While they do their very best to keep their love affairs with nicotine out of the spotlight and headlines, behind closed doors its another story. Having the ability to buy e-cigarettes online certainly doesn’t hurt! Let’s face it: nicotine feels good. Besides, what pro athlete does not occasionally (or frequently) indulge in having a few cocktails or throwing down a few beers, or glass of wine? Alcohol definitely has it’s share of associated negatives, but it is pretty widely accepted that everyone will be consuming it at some point. Cigarettes have a much more stigmatized cache about them, and because of how unhealthy they are, it is very much looked down upon when any famous person, and especially an athlete uses them. A double edged sword however, because when you live with a high level of stress and need to find ways to unwind quickly and pleasurably, few things can really match up to what nicotine does. The one detriment is the smoke.

It makes perfect sense why athletes are getting into smokeless cigarettes. They offer them the ability to have what they crave in a safer, more convenient device. Breathing in vapor, they do not have to worry about the affects on their lungs, and they can obviously feel the difference. Not having smoke in their systems, they are able to perform harder and at a more intense level. Jose Conseco and Anna Kornikova are both professional athletes who have had their fair share of tobacco in the past, and that is why both have fully embraced the e-cigarette trend. They love that they are free to vape as they wish, without putting their bodies in potential harm. They can enjoy the nicotine and be free of the smoke.

Whether you are a professional athlete, or just an everyday Joe who does their best to stay fit, e-cigarettes are the better option. Performance is everything!

 

All the Great Things About E-Cigs When They’re Disposable

Our e-cigarettes are awesome. Not to brag or anything, but we love them and we know our customers love them, and if there is one thing we love doing, it’s pleasing our customers! Have you tried our new line of disposable e-cigs yet? They are pretty wonderful and offer a whole bunch of benefits. Our reusables are still the staple, but sometimes a situation calls only for a disposable! Here are our top 10 reasons to give them a go!

1. Convenience; the most important thing when it comes to electronic cigarettes. We all need more and we never have enough, and with these handy disposables, you’ll be ready to vape whenever you need or want to.

2. When traveling. The absolute simplest way to have your e-cigarettes, without the need to bring anything extra. Plus they are pretty compact so you won’t have to be worried about sacrificing space in your suitcase.

3. Freedom. Our standard line of e-cigarettes provides users with ample amounts of freedom, but our disposables take it up a notch. No charging or changing cartridges is needed, but just the same you can use them anywhere you like without creating a problem.

4. Great for first-timers. None of the commitment of a starter kit, or even purchasing any accessories or pieces. Simply open up the package and vape. Can’t get simpler than that! No lighter, ash tray, or ventilation required.

5. Just-in-case. Always good to have and prepare for, you know?

6. Emergencies. They happen, and most of the time without any warning. Keeping a stash that’s ready to go in your emergency kit is a smart idea, because if you are unfortunately dealing with trying circumstances beyond your control, at least you won’t have to be without a convenient source of vapor.

7. Great for gift-giving, think about the holidays that are approaching. What lucky e-smoker would not be tickled by finding e-cig disposables in their stocking on Christmas morning?

8. Long days when you have zero access to charging, hectic running around, running errands, taking care of responsibilities, nonstop meetings at work, disposables keep you ready to vape anytime, anywhere!

9. When playing hard, it’s good to have dependable e-smokes, and if you are getting busy at music festivals, fun out in nature, going mudding… whatever- it’s great to have disposables  because when you don’t want to give in to using tobacco cigarettes out of “convenience” and you don’t want to risk sacrificing your regular e-cigs, they are the perfect balance of both options. Smoke-free + disposable!

10. Your friends always want to borrow your e-cig when you go out together. Mama always taught us that’s important to share with your buddies, but sometimes in this scenario it can be unsanitary and annoying. Keep a pack of disposables for those occasions when you know they’re going to ask.

E-Cigs Give Us So Many Reasons to be Thankful

The season of gratitude is full on right now, especially as the year’s major holiday approach. With Thanksgiving just 2 weeks away, what are you really thankful for? Here at EverSmoke, we are incredibly grateful to our customers who really mean so much to us. Offering a product that serves so many, and truly has helped millions to break a really horrible habit is a really wonderful thing. We are so very thankful to be able to offer great electronic cigarettes, and to be able to make a difference in peoples’ lives with them. They are greatly beneficial and give people a kind of control over their own usage, in a safe, smoke-free way. Most people who use them, have expressed much gratitude for their many benefits; wouldn’t you if your life was changed for the better?

E-cigarettes entered the retail market at a time when smokers were so ready for a change, and so ready for something new that really would help them get beyond the difficulties that tobacco cigarettes ceaselessly presented. Many people jumped on the bandwagon fast, eager to try anything that could possibly provide an outlet. Others waited, wanted feedback from the brave who tried them first. And when the reviews started pouring in favorably, more and more people became willing to give them a go. The more time that passed, the more technologically developed the range of e-cigarette brands and products became. The trend was really taking hold, and smokers were really seeing the light at the end of the tunnel by using smokeless cigarettes.

Now, about 5 years since alternative cigarettes have been on the market, they are hotter than ever. I see them everywhere I go, in casual places like the coffee shop and the book store, to seeing people laying out on the beach with their e-cig in hand. Celebrities have been fans since the beginning, and whenever a star takes up using them it makes big headlines for weeks, constantly putting electronic cigarettes in the news.

E-cigarettes offer users freedom, cleanliness, a healthier alternative, and nicotine in a more cost effective way than tobacco. They allow users to gain better control of their habit, and the ability to customize how they use the products. And they do it in a format that is comfortable, familiar, and still more convenient. E-cigs are changing lives and helping people live better lives. They aren’t here as the ultimate cessation for smoking; it goes much further than that. What they essentially offer is choice, and allow smokers to decide whether they want nicotine in their lives or not without the smoke.

Success Story: Robin Roseman

Today we bring you Robin’s story. We’re super thankful she took the time to write it up and send it to us, we love Success Stories and EverSmoke customer testimonials! Enjoy!

Hello everyone, I’m Robin. I’m a mother of three, and recently decided I did not want to be a smoker anymore, and especially smoking around my kids. As they get older, I become more and more conscious about what they are exposed to, and really don’t feel I was setting a good example as a smoker. Everyone these days has been talking about electronic cigarettes and how awesome they are, so I figured I had nothing to lose in trying them. I took my search to the internet, as one would to learn more about anything and looked for a company that was known for having good quality and nice options. I was also concerned with making sure I chose one that would allow refunds if I wasn’t satisfied, I definitely did not want to be stuck with something that didn’t work and waste money also. That’s when I found EverSmoke on a site that detailed many different brands and reviews on them. EverSmoke was very highly rated and they had the option of three battery sizes, which was nice I thought because I had never used these things before, it would be nice to be able to try all three to see which worked for me and how I use them. Also, in flavors, same idea. I wanted a brand that had a nice selection, and thankfully EverSmoke offers a sampler pack, so this way I was able to try them all. And then there were prices, who isn’t looking for the best deal possible? I know I always do! EverSmoke has all of their things priced similarly to nearly everyone on the market, and even cheaper than other so-called high end brands. I was sold.

Ordering and shipping all went really smoothly and easily, and I didn’t have to wait very long on shipping also. My package got to me in 5 days, which was nice because I was really anticipating my package. When my starter kit arrived, I was extremely pleased by the packaging and how nicely it was all put together, it shows the attention to detail. Setting up the e-cig starter kit was very easy and using the e-cigarettes according to the manual was also very straight forward, clear to understand and nothing confusing about it. I was vaping an hour after I got my kit!

And as for the actual vaping, it was just wonderful! It was pretty similar to cigarettes, the inhale was pretty simple too, it did not take much effort to drag at all, just like a cigarette. I was also really impressed by how much vapor really comes out, and it looks and feels just like smoke so that was a big plus in making it all feel authentic. I was convinced and ready to be done with tobacco right then and there. Now, in the long run, I have found it to be a great choice, and it has been really easy to get used to charging batteries instead of using lighter, and ordering cartridges through the HDP allows me to have a supply at all times.

At the end of the day, what it comes down to it is that I am really happy to not be smoking cigarettes anymore. EverSmoke was the right catalyst in helping me along! Everyone has their own reasons for what they choose to do. I have been quite satisfied by my purchase and decision to switch over to electronic cigs. It was the right decision for me at the right time. I really hope my story convinces others to give them a try, and hopefully make the switch to a healthier way of life.

Why Promoting E-Cigarettes is Great for Business

If you are the owner of a bar or restaurant, you should be doing everything within your power to encourage e-smoking. We know perfectly well that cigarettes are bad for everyone, but e-cigs are anything but. Generally, you can vape all you want in public places, indoors or out, and especially in bars and restaurants because the vapor is never a problem to nonsmokers or anyone who comes into contact.

Cigarettes are entirely justified in having massive restrictions; most nonsmokers don’t care to smell them or inhale the smoke. They are just not good for business. But by promoting electronic cigarettes, you are able to please everyone, and keep all of your patrons in the door. For example, in a restaurant or bar, imagine how much money can be lost to smokers spending a good amount of their time outside, rather than in your doors? Allowing them the option to vape inside lets them stay, and continue to enjoy your services. And it results in a mutually beneficial scenario: the customer gets to stay inside, enjoy their dinner and/ or cocktails while they enjoy their electronic cig, and the business owner sees greater profit, a longer stay from the customer, and a customer who leaves happy, who is then more likely to speak highly of the venue. It only makes sense! Our customers are overwhelmingly pleased with all the benefits that have incurred by using alternative cigarettes, just have a look at some of the EverSmoke testimonials they have written!

E-cigarettes have gained so much ground in the past few years because of their many conveniences and the great alternative they are for people who want to enjoy nicotine without the smoke. Tobacco comes with a great deal of stigma, and more and more it becomes less accepted and tolerated in the public sphere. For business, daily life, and social settings, e-cigs are the way to go!

What You Need to Know About E-Cigarette Bans

It’s pretty obvious that electronic cigarettes are faced with a lot of controversy. Between the proponents and the adversaries, there is a lot of mixed information going on right now. Many people are claiming electronic cigarettes are unhealthy, unsafe, and dangerous, all the while there is plenty of information to say otherwise. Currently, Canada does not permit the sales of e-cigs, however traditional tobacco cigarettes are perfectly legal. Does this make sense to anyone? E-Cigarette use is not illegal there, but sales are.

Even still, many people are fighting for bans and restrictions, and it is kind of hard to decipher the truth when personal interests really get in the way here in the States. In the quaint Bay Area city of San Rafael, many are pushing for restrictions on e-cigs to match the strict ordinances on tobacco cigarettes. This is the same case scenario in many other parts of the country as well.

Such is the case with Dr. Ellen Hahn, from the Kentucky Center for Smoke Free Policy recently went on record during a television interview, unleashing a diatribe filled with holes and inaccurate information about e-cigarettes. She is connected to the Rx powerhouse Pfizer, the notorious maker of numerous cigarette-cessation drugs. The basis of her argument was that smokers should not use vapor alternative cigarettes as a cessation device because of their abundance of carcinogenic compounds as well as the fact that no one is entirely sure what is contained within them. Perhaps she needs to actually investigate what e-cigs are really all about, and perhaps she needs to look into the more legitimate, more responsible brands that exist. Because if she were to do some research into EverSmoke, as well as many of the other well-known brands, she would find that we disclose our ingredients. Even more importantly, we do not promote or consider our products and electronic cigarette starter kits to be “cessation devices.” They are an alternative option, and our cartridges do contain nicotine, with the exemption of our 0mg nicotine cartridges. Without any uncertainty, our e-cigarette products produce no smoke, tobacco or otherwise. Nothing gets burned during the vaping process, and while vapor bears an uncanny resemblance to smoke, it is simply water vapor.

Millions of people are switching from tobacco to electronic, and the vast majority of them are well-informed about the positives. Some claim e-cigs are bad because they are tempting to teens and others who are at risk, however they are much less easily accessible than cigarettes are. Doubters also cite that e-cigarette brands are not looking towards the betterment of their users, claiming they will get hooked on vapor cigs and never quit. This is also untrue, because even though e-smokes are not meant for cessation, users gain a much greater sense of control when using them, and often can wean themselves off at their own comfort level. And in the process, they aren’t immersing themselves in toxic, carcinogenic smoke. So bans or no bans, if smokers are determined to quit using vapor, they are going to. When there’s a will, there’s a way, as the old saying goes!

 

 

5 Reasons to Ditch the Cigs for E-Cigs for Halloween

It’s always a good time to choose vapor over smoke, and hey, Halloween is barely a week away, and it’s as good a time as any! We are still currently running our Breast Cancer Awareness sale, and it’s technically still October, so a percentage of all sales go towards the Susan G. Komen Fund, so make those purchases count towards something bigger! In the meantime, while Halloween is on the brain, here are 5 pretty good reasons why the scariest night of the year should not involve tobacco smoke!

1. Halloween is especially fun for the kids, and it’s never appropriate to smoke cigarettes around them. Exposing them to smoke can be totally avoided, whether you just stop yourself from smoking in their presence, or you do the intelligent thing and use electronic cigarettes. This way, when you’re trick or treating, or handing out candy to the hordes of revelers, you don’t put anyone in uncomfortable situations, and you can have your cake and it too!

2. If you are to imbibe on some forbidden vice, on Halloween let it be candy, and not smoke, if you are to choose between them. Vapor cigarettes are much gentler on the system, no matter what time of year anyway.

3. Halloween parties are fun, but smokers in large social gatherings usually get sent out to pasture. Stay indoors and vape, don’t miss any of the party, and infuriate no one with smoke.

4. Some places in the US already have had snowfall this year, and October is usually pretty chilly in a lot of the country. Getting bundled up to smoke outside is such a drag. Again, e-cigs are perfectly fine indoors, and even if Halloween is just another night of the week for you and don’t even intend on handing out treats, you won’t have to brave cold temps.

5. Did you know that Halloween’s original roots can be traced back to the Pagan and Druid times of the Celtic world? It was technically their “New Year” so in that vain, start your year right, with a purposeful resolution to quit smoking, and use e-cigarettes so you can still have the pleasure, none of the pain, and be free from the smoke!

E-Cigs, Celebs, and SNL!

We love celebs, and we love it even more when they smoke e-cigarettes instead of tobacco cigs for sure! It’s always fun when electronic cigarettes pop up in pop culture, and we get pretty giddy when they do! One of the latest sightings happened recently on an episode of Saturday Night Live featuring a skit with Fred Armisen and none other the modern-day James Bond, aka Daniel Craig! Fred’ character was the one handling the e-cig, as he and Craig canoodled on the couch!

Electronic smokes and celebs are nothing new, and a good deal of their popularity can definitely be attributed to celebrities who have really helped usher in the age of vapor. As more and more stars take to the movement, millions of ordinary folks are doing the same. E-cigs have been shown on Two Broke Girls, The Doctors, Alcatraz, Late Night With David Lettermen, the Today Show, among others. The SNL cameo could be looked at just a little scene, just a little reference, but to appear on a show is a really big deal. It shows that alternative cigarettes are not just a passing trend; they would have diminished from sight several years ago if that were the case. It really proves that this is a mass acceptance, and is proof that more people are embracing them in favor of traditional cigarettes. It shows they have solidified their place in American culture at this time.

Celebrities or not, electronic cigarettes are the smarter way to go. Cigarettes will cost you a whole lot more, both in terms of your health and money. They aren’t the “cooler” alternative just because trendy stars are using them; they are the better alternative because they offer you benefits where cigarettes offer only failure. So, hooray to the folks at SNL for recognizing the impact e-cigarettes are making, both in Hollywood and real life pop culture! If your curiosity has gotten the better of you now, and you can’t handle holding off trying e-smokes any longer, check out our amazingly excellent selection of starter kits!
