Optimistic News for E-cigarette Usage: Recent Study Finds Teens Uninterested in Flavored E-liquids


A recent study conducted by Nicotine & Tobacco Research found that teens who don’t smoke may not be overly attracted to the flavors of e-cigarette liquid as some e-cigarette critics suggest. This data is great news for e-cigarette supporters who stick fast to their beliefs that the smokeless electric cigs contains less hazards than the tobacco counterparts.

These findings and others have not quieted fears that e-cigarettes could tempt non-smokers (teens especially) to pick up the devices and start vaping.

Saul Shiffman, PhD., of the University of Pittsburgh psychology professor and Pinney Associates, stated: “Concerns about initiation of e-cigarette use by nonsmoking teens have focused on the expected and assumed appeal of flavors. It is important to replace assumptions with data. Our study shows that flavor descriptors, even those expected to appeal to youth, do not do so.”

He goes on to suggest that these though e-cigarettes provide no health benefits to the growing teen body, they are still considered less dangerous than traditional tobacco cigarettes and therefore can offer a safer smoking option for adult smokers.

Nearly 650 people—216 nonsmoking teenagers (between 13 and 17) and 432 cigarette-smoking adults—participated in the study. All participants had expressed an interest in using e-cigarettes. Researchers asked them to rank their interest in e-cigarettes (on a 1-10 scale), then the participants were offered a flavor list. The results found that the 216 teens showed only minimal interest in the e-cigarettes and this interest did not change with e-liquid flavors.

The desire to use e-cigarettes was greatest amongst adults who had recently tried a smokeless electric cig. In addition, these smoking adults showed the most interest in e-liquid flavors, including double espresso, raspberry and vanilla bean.

Studying the appeal of certain e-liquid flavors to minors is helpful because researchers can learn which flavors will lead to less minors using e-cigarettes.

Spring Cleaning Your E-Cig


It’s that time of the year again when the winter blues lift and the sunshine finally bursts forth. You might start to look around your house and think “Hmmm…maybe I should do some spring cleaning.”  Yes, those cobwebs and have got to go!  And if you’re a vaper, you should also consider giving your electronic cigarette a spring cleaning as well.

Electronic cigarettes aren’t perfect.  Sometimes e-liquid gets stuck and gunked up inside the cartridge, the battery can stain the inside of the device, or the mouthpiece can even become blocked.  These are just a few things that can slow down your e-cig from performing at its best.

Below are some quick and easy tips for giving your electronic cig a good cleaning.

The Battery

Cleaning between the battery and cartridge is essential.  This is where a lot of dust, debris and gunk can build up. It’s recommended that you do this at least once a week.  If you don’t, your spring cleaning may take a little longer than expected!

This is also a very important step because the connection between the battery and cartridge needs to be strong in order for it to work properly.

Some people use a light damp cloth, while others use alcohol on a swab to clean this area.  It is advised that you check your manual to see what is appropriate for your particular device.

The Cartridge (Cartomizer)

Most of the new electronic cigarettes combine the cartridge and atomizer, but some of the older ones are separate.  If you have an older model, you will need to clean both.

You can try and use a cloth, but sometimes a toothpick is necessary.

At Eversmoke, we sell prefilled flavor cartridges which create a lot less of a mess.  We also sell disposable cartridges, so no cleanup necessary!

As long as you give these two main two parts of the electronic cigarette a good spring cleaning and remember to wipe them down on a regular basis, you will ensure that your device lasts longer and performs better.

Vape Your Way to Better Shape! Part 1

Get in Shape with VapingLooking to get into better shape? In an indirect way, vaping can help! If you’re a smoker, you probably know all too well the pitfalls that come with being having decreased breathing ability and attempting to exercise. Simply, smoking has a terrible effect on the body, inside and out. Here are some ways just using your vape instead of smoking can help you along with your fitness goals!

  1. Vaping, as it does not contain smoke or tobacco, nor does it produce combustion or tar, will not have the same effect on your body, so you won’t have to worry about the smoke being a negative factor in your ability to get your blood flowing .

  2. More control options. Smoking cigarettes, you are probably accustomed to smoking through whole cigarettes at a time in favor of not wasting them. With vaping, you can take 2 puffs and call it done, without that same waste factor. This means you can place more limitations on yourself without creating an uncomfortable situation. Which means you can more consciously limit your nicotine intake without going crazy.

  3. Good riddance to the toxins. Cigarettes contain way too many (thousands!) toxins, and just by vaping, you are doing your body a favor by not including them.

  4. Taste more, eat better. Smoking causes you to lose tasting capacity because smoke and tar damage your senses of taste and smell. When vaping, you can recover much of those lost sensations and allow yourself the pleasure of eating healthier foods, and being able to taste them. Eating the rainbow is ideal, and now you’ll actually be able to taste it! (And no, we aren’t talking about indulging wildly in your fave colorful candies!)

  5. Speaking of candy, instead of indulging in the no-good, empty-calorie, chemical-loaded treats, get down with some of our fantastic flavored e-cig cartridges! Bet you won’t be able to use just one flavor!

Better shape means a better quality of life, which means you have more time and energy to do the things you love; like vaping! So take care of your body, and it will take care of you. Vaping can be an awesome way to alter your lifestyle, so take advantage of the many benefits it avails!

Taste the Rainbow

A Rainbow of Vape FlavorsTraditional cigarettes do so much to destroy the body. They can destroy your health in every possible way, destroy your organs, your respiratory system, your heart, and riddle the body with terminal cancer. All really serious things. Yet, they also hold the potential to cause more subtle damage that can affect your short term health and daily enjoyment of things. Prime example: your ability to taste.

Electronic smoking offers countless flavor possibilities, between e-cigarette cartridge offerings and e-liquids. Traditional smoking gave the benefit of maybe 3 flavors to choose from: tobacco, menthol, and clove. It really did not offer much variety, and smokers were confined to relatively narrow choices. Fast forward to the present, many smokers are overjoyed with the options they now have and can enjoy at their leisure, both between being able to actually taste and that they have endless flavor choices.

Regular cigarettes affect the senses of taste and smell drastically. Tobacco cigarettes, in part due to their toxic tar, actual burning of the taste buds from the heat of the smoke, and build up of chemicals can lay waste to your taste buds. Smokers are quite familiar with how their ability to taste gets fully compromised from smoking, and most are quite surprised how their taste buds recover when they quit smoking or turn to electronic cigarettes. It turns into an “a-ha! kinda moment” when they first taste something, and they remember what it once was to actually enjoy the flavor of things!

Another factor that comes into play when you compare traditional cigarettes and electronic, and how they affect the taste buds is that e-cigarettes do not give off a smell, which leaves your taste buds open and free to experience taste in its entirety. The sense of smell, if you are not aware, is responsible for a huge amount of the the sense of taste; making them intrinsically connected. And, in the broad scope of things, why would you want to miss out on tasting things? Sure nicotine and the feeling of smoking are great and all, but being able to experience the gastronomic pleasures of cheeseburgers, sushi, pizza, enchiladas, and dark chocolate mochas really are worth the minimal effort it takes to switch to vaping.

Also to your benefit, in that case, is having so many more flavors to choose from when you are smoking. It’s a win-win situation! Get ready to taste the rainbow!

Thanksgiving: Be Grateful for E-Cigs

ThanksgivingThanksgiving is almost here, and that means lots of celebrating and indulging in the bounty of food and drink! It also means lots of after-dinner e-cigs are going to get vaped because what closes a meal better than a rush of vapor, a blast of flavor, and the relaxing effect of nicotine? Yeah, you know what I speak: Thanksgiving e-cigs are the bomb!

E-cigs make the better choice in just about every situation, but especially when it comes to celebrating and hanging out with others. Your extended family and friends most likely will not be keen on smelling your lingering smoke odor, and don’t even think about exposing them to your second hand smoke! The holidays should be enjoyed, not spent making a nuisance of yourself!

We also know that when it comes to enjoying nicotine in large groups of people, tobacco is really not the way to go anymore. This couldn’t be more true than right now, as we approach Thanksgiving and the non stop rush of the impending holiday season. Having to smoke strictly outdoors can get very annoying, and unnecessarily repetitive, in the worst way. Having to get dressed up in all-out winter gear for just a 5 minute smoke can get old quickly, and it can often seem rude to your hosts or guests when you are constantly running back and forth and slipping out the door, favoring your cigs over the gathering.

Sometimes, we know, during those long, occasionally uncomfortable family holiday endeavors, heading outdoors to smoke can be more of a relief than having to sit through the boredom and small-talk, however e-smoking gives you the option of indoor or outdoor satisfaction. Hey, options are a great thing and being able to choose puts the power back in your hands!

Thanksgiving can be so much more enjoyable when you vape also because you’ve got so many great options of flavors to bring to the table- literally! If you want something to pair with your meal, you can choose between complementing flavors like Cherry and Golden Tobacco. If you want flavors that satisfy after a meal, Vanilla, Blue Tobacco, and Menthol match up perfectly. The choices are endless because e-cig flavors really add a fun element to any meal!

This is the week to get thankful and we are so gearing up for Thanksgiving and the season of merriment. How about you? Are you ready for feasting and enjoying time with those you love?

Tips for Having Proper E-Cig Etiquette

etiquette word in letterpress type

If you have made the switch to e-cigarettes from traditional analogue ones, congrats!  Although there are many positive aspects to e-cigs such as no smoke, tar or odor, they still can receive a bad rap.  Changing the perception of e-cigs to the public can be a challenge.  However, there are some basic tips that can get you started!

First and foremost, no matter if vaping is allowed, you should always have respect of those around you.  Perhaps ask if it would bother anyone if you lit up.  This may even open up an opportunity to begin a conversation about e-cigarettes and the benefits of vaping as opposed to traditional smoking.

If you don’t want the whole world staring at you and talking about you, some advice would be not to vape in closed up, tight knit places.  Many that are not used to e-cigs may think you are about to share second hand smoke all around!  If you do start using your e-cig, be prepared to answer questions or comments.  However, answer them respectfully and not defensively.

Besides respect, education is huge.  Many don’t realize that e-cigs produce a water vapor instead of smoke or that there is no odor that will stick to their clothes if they are around you while you vape.  Educate them and maybe even take time to show an interested person how it works.  Show them how easy it is to use, talk about all the variety of yummy flavors that are made available at Eversmoke.  Most importantly, let them know how you feel and possibly the difference it has made in your life.

The biggest issue facing e-cigarettes and vapor smoking is a public image problem.  You can be a help in that!  Showing respect, educating and talking openly about e-cigs can only help the situation.  We know that e-cigs are a smarter choice than traditional smoking…we just have to help others know!  For more information on etiquette, check out this article in our knowledge center. Meanwhile, happy vaping!

Vaping and the Holidays: E-Cigs Make it Merrier

throw-a-vaping-party-this-holiday-season_997_541248_0_14095915_500The holidays are fast approaching now that Halloween has passed, and what this means is plenty of parties, get togethers, long indulgent meals, and endless gatherings spent in the company of others, especially family. What this also means is that it’s time to get your most courteous behavior on, and one the of the best ways to do that is to make sure you’re vaping and not smoking.

Here are a few of the ways electronic cigarette smoking can benefit you and your loved ones during the holiday season, and help make them even more enjoyable. If you’ve never savored an e-cig after a long meal, you don’t know what you’re missing!

-Large gatherings and smoke don’t go well together. Most nonsmokers get majorly inconvenienced and annoyed by smoke, so they really don’t want to be forced to breathe it in. Smokers on the other hand, want to be able to enjoy their smoke at their pleasure. E-cigs bridge this gap, especially when you exercise vaping etiquette, enabling both parties to party together without anyone getting ticked off.

-Holiday feasts mean holiday calorie overloads. Skip dessert and opt for dessert flavored e-cigarette cartridges instead. With choices like vanilla, pina colada, peach, and cherry, who needs pie, cake, or pastries?

-It’s cold outside, and who wants to have to put on 5 layers for a 5 minute cigarette? Not a good use of time, people! Instead of the inconveniences tobacco cigs will deal out, choose electronic cigs, which will have you having your nicotine in the comfort of the warm indoors!

-Holidays are typically the happiest time of the year. Celebrations are in full swing, people are throwing parties, offices are having parties, cities are having parties; people get into the party spirit, and it brings up the question of your health. Don’t you want to be around another year to celebrate? Don’t you want to be in the best health possible to enjoy the celebrations to their fullest? Tobacco will definitely not be the road to take if you’re looking towards the future, and if you want to enjoy yourself to the fullest.

This holiday season, do yourself a favor and give e-cigs a try if you haven’t yet. They add so much to the daily lives of smokers everywhere, and offer so many reasons to ditch the tobacco altogether. They truly are a modern achievement, let your 2014 holiday season be all the more merrier because of them!

Am I Allergic to My E-cigarette?


Scenario: you’ve just started e-smoking and now you’re experiencing headaches and a sore throat or other allergy symptoms and you’re wondering if your new e-cigarette is to blame. Before throwing in the towel and going back to tobacco cigarettes, you should research to ensure that you are in fact experiencing symptoms related to vaping.

Commonly, allergic reactions to e-liquid come from propylene glycol (PG), an organic compound makes up the base of most e-liquids and is responsible for holding the nicotine and flavor in suspension and causing plumes of smoke-like vapor.

The problem is, however, vaping allergic reactions and tobacco cessation symptoms can be the same. One way to check is to stop e-smoking for a couple of days and if your symptoms clear up, chances are you’re experiencing a reaction to something in your e-liquid.

For more information on e-cigarettes and allergy, please read more in our article: Problems While Vaping: Is it an Allergic Reaction or a Cessation Symptom?

EverSmoke uses a 70/30 (PG and VG respectively) blend in all of our e-cigarettes. Do not despair: if you’re experiencing adverse reactions to your e-cigarette when vaping, you should try switching flavors until you find one that works for you. It is much better to switch products until you discover the one(s) that work best for you. Going back to tobacco is the worst mistake you can make!

How to Perfect Your Technique

9Using any device, technology, or product can come with its share of ups and downs when figuring out how to get the best performance from it. When it comes to vaping, one thing we can’t stress enough is how important it is to get the feel and the technique right. So if you are new to using electronic cigarettes, or are interested in finding out how to get better performance results from your e-cigarettes, do yourself a quick little favor and read these tips!

-Experiment, experiment, experiment! Can you tell we believe in the merits of experimenting to find what works for you? Don’t expect the first go to be the perfect match. You didn’t marry the first person you ever dated, right? Same goes for trying anything else that’s new; leave your options open, try different flavors, nicotine strengths, and e-cigarette styles until you are totally satisfied.

-Try different flavors. Just because you were a smoker and used and are used to tobacco doesn’t mean all of our other exciting flavors won’t appeal to you. Change can be awesome and sometimes it’s just the trick to make your vaping go over easy.

-Vaping is not the same as tobacco smoking, and your drags are going to be different. Long, deep drags are the way to go unlike the short quick drugs typical when smoking tobacco cigarettes. In fact, the longer and slower the drags, the better.

-Enjoy all of the sensations. When you hold your vapor in (longer than you would with tobacco cigarettes), the feeling can be amazing!  Try it!

-Get really familiar with your cartridges, learn how to use them properly, how they work, and how to detect when the liquid is running low. They are major components to the experience, and if your cartridge doesn’t have enough e-liquid in it, it’s not going to perform properly.

Understand the basics of choosing a nicotine strength. Most smokers use a level around 18 mg; heavy smokers (two packs a day) would probably be most comfortable 24 mg; a casual smoker would probably enjoy 6 mg. Our suggestion is to start off with a lower level than you would typically go with so that you can see exactly what’s comfortable for you and where you can increase or decrease the nicotine.

The most important factor when vaping  is your satisfaction, so tweak these techniques and put them into play to get the most out of your experience when using electronic cigarettes. Be patient when vaping, consider that there is a learning curve involved when you first start. If you need more information or resources please feel free to browse the EverSmoke knowledge center. Your enjoyment and success when using our electronic cigarettes is our goal so please do not hesitate to explore the many options and resources we make available!

Chill Out with E-Cigs: How vaping can help reduce stress!

urlThink electronic cigarettes are just a means of ditching tobacco? Think again! They can be a very positive, enjoyable thing, and even provide the ability to help you unwind and relax at the end of a long day. Here’s how e-cigarettes can play a role in helping you to relieve some stress!

-Flavor: Crave something delicious, perhaps sweet, whenever the going gets tough? You aren’t the only one. Reach for your e-cig with a vanilla, peach, coffee, or cherry flavored cartridge instead of the sugary sweets; same pleasure, no calories or sugar crash!

-Nicotine: Most smokers will agree, the feeling of nicotine is sensational. It’s one of the intrinsic parts of smoking that make it worthwhile. Hence with vaping, you get to enjoy the same pleasure minus the harm from tobacco. Nicotine from vaping feels amazing, and may be just the thing you need to relax at the end of a hard day.

-Pleasure: There is just something soothing and comforting about the art of smoking. It feels good. Bringing that e-cig to your mouth, inhaling, feeling the vapor hit your throat, and then exhaling feels amazing. So when you’re in a slump, give it a go!

-Gives You Something to Do: Stress and boredom don’t work well together, so by giving you something positive and enjoyable to focus on, even for just a few minutes, vaping can really help take the edge off and make things a little less dull.

-Food Pairings: If you turn to food when you’re not in your best state, keep in mind all of the delicious food and vapor pairings that are available. Because the two can enhance each other, we suggest enjoying them together to up your satisfaction and enjoyment.

-You’ve Got More Options with E-Cigs: enjoy them indoors in your home, on your couch, in your favorite chair, in bed while you chill and binge-watch your favorite series on TV… you’ve got many more places to chill with them, so take advantage! You don’t have to head outside, and you can get cozy and unwind in peace!

Life is stressful, there’s no getting around it. However, if you vape, allow your e-cigs to fill in some of those unpleasant gaps! Enjoy them whenever you want or need to, especially when life calls for some chill time!
