Success Story: Holly Parker

For our latest “success story” we are very happy to share Holly’s with you today! As a recent grad school graduate, we wish her the very best in all her pursuits in the future! We know she’ll do great, especially now that she is smoke-free!

Hey, I’m Holly, and I recently graduated with my Master’s Degree. I had started smoking during my first year of college because I was really stressed and everyone around me was smoking. It was a quick stress relief, and seemed harmless even though I had always been told about all the horrors. So, when you’re young you think you’re invincible, right? The longer I smoked, the more I smoked, and one day it got to where I realized I was waking up everyday hacking up a lung, feeling congested, and entirely gross. The “human ashtray” thing had gotten to me big time a few months back and I just had a breaking point. I’d heard of electronic cigarettes, and decided to give them a go. Picking a brand wasn’t really hard, because I know a few people who use EverSmoke and had asked them directly about them. So, 4 months into this whole thing, and I couldn’t be happier. They are very much a real way to control your habit and take responsibility for it, while omitting the most dangerous aspect: the smoke.

As a customer, I have been greatly impressed with EverSmoke’s excellent standards. I started with a Premium starter kit, and loved it’s convenience. In so many ways, they are just wonderful to work with, and I have been really happy with all of my e-cigarettes, accessories and cartridges which I have purchased. The best feature they offer, by far, is their Home Delivery Program. This optional program is unbelievable, and takes very little effort to join. The savings are outstanding, and are so worth it. I found the flavors to be really good, and the whole vapor experience is really satisfying in the same way smoke was. The process of smoking is the same. I tried all of the flavors because knowing I had choices, I wanted to see which ones I liked the best. I really enjoy most, but tend to stick with the conventional tobacco cartridges. The batteries have a great lasting potential in between charging so that’s an added perk to the convenience.

Overall, it’s been really great with EverSmoke. As I begin this new chapter, I am beyond pleased to be doing without the burden of a cigarette habit!

 

On the Subject of Ingredients: Know Your Brand of E-Cigarettes

A lot of concern has come into talk about electronic cigarettes as of late. Many people have questioned what exactly is in the nicotine solution used by e-cigarette companies. If it is going into their bodies, they should be able to know what it is they are vaping with. Tobacco companies have been forced to reveal the multitude of toxins and deadly agents they put into their cigarettes and filters. When switching over to e-smokes, users are looking for a less harmful experience, one without unnecessary chemicals, and they want to know what’s in that harmless vapor solution that carries nicotine so well!

It is their right of course, as well as the responsibility of each brand to fully display what is contained in their products. As e-cigs and their products are not governed by any organizations such as the FDA, people want to know what they are getting themselves into.  If one chooses electronic cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes, health is usually one of the top reasons. In this case, it makes no sense at all to use a product that contains harmful substances as is common with traditional cigarettes.

While there are no regulations, a lot of brands take advantage of not having to disclose what is in their liquid nicotine. EverSmoke, however, is very proud to publish the ingredients in our e-cigarette cartridges on our website. The list is quite small, and it contains no words that are impossible to pronounce. The nicotine solution is consists of nicotine, distilled water, natural and artificIal flavors, and glycerin. That’s it and that’s all that’s needed to create a fantastic vaping experience, without the excess chemicals that you get with smoke.

Live Better and Save Money with Electronic Cigarettes

On top of all the benefits that can be yours with EverSmoke e-cigarettes, saving money is one of the really big ones. Who doesn’t want to save money? Besides, with the cost of tobacco cigarettes skyrocketing, why would anyone want to spend that kind dough on such a harmful habit?

The list is long when it comes to how e-cigs are so effective at saving money. People often begin using them for a variety of reasons as an alternative to traditional smokes, and the cost factor is an extremely pleasant side effect. The overall cost, from cartridge to pack of cigs is monumental. According to our e-cigarette savings calculator, for the average smoker who smokes a pack a day, or about 20 cigarettes a day at $6 per pack, the yearly expenditure is about $2,190. With EverSmokes, the average yearly spending for the equivalent amount of cartridges is $605, coming out to savings of $1585 yearly. Who doesn’t want an additional $1,500+ to spend on more meaningful things? If you switched to electronic cigarettes, and had those kinds of savings accumulated, what would you do with it? Put in the bank and sit on it? Put it towards a much needed vacation? Pay off some bills? Shopping spree? Extra money is always nice, and when it comes by doing something better for yourself, you just can’t beat it!

While the above example is a straightforward one, directly citing the savings on cartridges, other expenses come into play when you are a smoker. Smokers have to purchase things like perfume and fragrances to help keep the odor at bay. They have to rely on gums and mints to mask their hideous breath. They often have to replace clothing, sheets, and furniture when they get burned by falling embers. Lighters and ash trays are small costs, but things like medical bills that relate to illnesses like bronchitis, respiratory issues, and (hopefully never) drastic issues like emphysema, heart disease, and cancer are all pretty common for smokers. Consider that the average cold can spiral out of control when your system is fighting the effects of residual tobacco tar build up, and how a minor cold can offshoot numerous unwanted side effects as the body attempts to heal itself. Who really needs the expense of dealing with pneumonia? Even if you have insurance, and are not putting much money out of your pocket towards your medical bills, it’s common knowledge that smokers generally pay higher insurance premiums.

With e-cigs, quitting is a lot easier because you are able to have full control over your use. You can mindfully reduce how much nicotine you take in as well as how often you puff. And, you are never obligated to consume entire cigarettes each time. These little changes equate to a much more conscious, and cost effective nicotine experience. Most people are totally blown away by the results, and the money they’ve saved!

Bottom line is that tobacco cigarettes come with a lot of added costs, and they aren’t cheap to begin with. Why not go electronic, limit your exposure to smoke and chemicals, and save money while you’re at it!

How E-Cigarettes Fit the Eco-Friendly Lifestyle

Everybody these days is looking to go more green, so why not with your nicotine? E-cigs, as you probably know, have taken the smoking world by storm, and are very eco friendly way to enjoy the pleasure of smoking. They are a more conscious product because they contribute far less to pollution, are not easy to casually flick to the ground, and they are much better for the body because of absence of chemical fillers like analog.

Cigarettes are loaded with numerous inherent problems, which have not been changed or updated in recent years. The tobacco industry itself has come under fire for their hazardous farming practices, and if you have been anywhere in public, you have probably encountered cigarette butt pollution on the ground. The most irksome for me personally, is when I am at a nature preserve, park, or the beach and find cigarette waste strewn about. Not only posing a threat to wildlife, who often ingest the filthy, chemical-laden remnants, these chemicals have been known to leach into the ground, the soil, and eventually seeping into running water. Considering all the dangerous chemicals these things are laced with, it’s a really disturbing thought to know the problems they are capable of causing, as well as the fact that people are still smoking them when an alternative exists!

Reusable is just better in today’s day and age. Why not recycle and keep your products “in cycle” for as long as possible? With electronic cigarettes, this is the idea! EverSmoke batteries are the strongest, most powerful on the market, and are of lithium-ion construction. They are made to last, and perform when you need them to. When your cartridge is up, you simply replace the cartridge. Done! We have purposely created what we believe is the best and most durable e-cig on the market, because if you put the effort into the design, and it functions at an optimal level, you will not be replacing your products incessantly. You will get what you want from it, and you won’t be contributing uselessly to the planet’s pollution problems.

Hey, we know it’s not entirely possible to live a life 100% eco-conscious, but why not do a little more where you can? All it takes is a few little steps, and you may stumble on something that is not only better for the earth and the environment, but also for yourself and your lifestyle. Best way to start? Get an e-cigarette starter kit!

Go For Safety, Go With Vapor

Electronic cigarettes vs. regular cigarettes can be debated in a multitude of ways. While a tobacco cig smoker can really only know so much about e-cigs without actually trying them, if you compare the facts, one on one, you will see the amazing ways that vapor is becoming the new smoke.

Why are e-cigarettes better? Well, for starters, they contain no tobacco and produce no smoke. Not a tiny bit of it. They were designed to create a smoke-free experience, and allow users to get the benefit of nicotine in a manner almost identical to tobacco, without all the hangups.

How are they safer? For starters, simply by being smokeless makes them safer. Take away the smoke, and you instantly remove the tar. EverSmoke, known for being a leader in the industry for our exceptional quality, uses only the best ingredients, of which there are still not that many in our electronic cigarette cartridges. Therefore, without question the thousands of chemicals that are contained in cigarettes and cigarette filters are never added, and never need to be added. All the carcinogenic properties are not included, and not available to cause problems. Tobacco tar is one of the most harmful aspects of traditional cigarettes, causing decay within the mouth, and  building up in the lungs. Of the countless chemicals that are in tobacco cigarettes, among them are ammonia, formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide: all known to be deadly.

What do you think? If you were making a decision to smoke electronically or traditionally, considering safety what do you think would be the safer way to go? While an occasional tobacco cig every so often, or a little exposure to second hand smoke may pose no threat, continuous, daily, habitual, repetitive use is more often than not, a serious impediment to one’s health. Vapor cigarettes are clean, and they leave behind not a trace of scent or remnants. And it’s effects are glorious! E-smokers are usually quite thrilled, once they’ve replaced their tobacco because they notice how much cleaner their environments are, how much cleaner they feel. Really, see for yourself, why vapor is safer!

 

 

In Honor of the Olympics…

With the Olympics kicking off, it seems pretty appropriate to talk about e-cigarettes and athletes. In reality, most athletes on the Olympian scale probably do not use electronic cigarettes for how rigorous and strict their training and health requirements are. Not a fraction of tolerance is given to anyone who does not meet the standards, and the testing is extremely intense regarding any kind of substances in their bodies.  However, for more average athletes, who do not have to adhere to extremely disciplined lifestyles, electronic cigarettes are the perfect option for when the pleasure of nicotine is craved.

Whether you live and bleed athleticism, or are just physical enough to stay in shape, ff you are an active type of person whatsoever, alternative cigarettes are a much more convenient way to get nicotine. Plenty of ordinary, athletic people happily choose e-smokes over tobacco everyday. They contain none of the thousands of chemicals found in cigarettes, produce no toxic smoke, and the body is way more tolerant of them. The electronic cigarettes work is simple, and essentially very clean. With tobacco tar creating all kinds of hazards within the body, accumulating in the lungs and restricting oxygen intake, smokers have huge hurdles to overcome if they are playing sports, working out, or doing any kind of cardio exercise.

Think about celebrities. While they are more often known for what roles they’ve taken, what they’re wearing, and who they are dating, there is enormous pressure on them to maintain physiques of exquisite proportions. Most will attest to spending plenty of time in the gym, sometimes up to 7 days a week, just to be sure they are properly in shape. While not professional athletes, with those kinds of measures, they certainly need to live active lives to benefit their careers. That is just one reason why e-cigs are so popular with the Hollywood crowd, and their efforts to maintain their physical attractiveness. When you consider how awful cigarettes are for the body, and if you are spending ample amounts of time perfecting yours, electronic smokes are just the better choice.

So, if you are hitting London for the games, or plan on watching from your living room, or getting updates via social media, enjoy it all the more with an e-cigarette from EverSmoke! If the events get you motivated to be more athletic than ever, good for you! Be content that you’ll be a whole lot better off with vapor than smoke! The Summer Olympics only happen once every 4 years, and here’s to 2012 being absolutely amazing!

Why Electronic Cigarettes Are So Popular with Celebrities

The reason celebrities are so fond of alternative cigarettes is because they are awesome! They feel better, work better, allow for a lot more convenience, and they help anyone steer clear away from smoke. They are the ultimate smoking option, loaded with benefits, and low on issues. Essentially, they are just better in every way over tobacco!

Celebrities often dictate trends, and when they get noticed doing something, anything, people get curious. And so it goes with electronic cigarettes. As traditional cigarettes have always been really commonplace in Hollywood, celebs got on the bandwagon for e-cigs pretty quickly. Hey, it’s not just ordinary people who want to quit smoking! So, as the popularity of smokeless cigarettes grows massively, so do the amount of stars who are using them. A while back, Katherine Heigl was flaunting her e-cigs everywhere she went. She even gave a demonstration to David Letterman on his late night show. Some of the other famous folks who have been spotted with an e-cigarette in hand are Miley Cyrus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Petty, JWOW, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Dennis Quaid, Harrison Ford, Trace Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Kevin Federline,  Kate Moss, Danny Bonaduce, Ryan Seacrest, and Kate Middleton have all be known or seen lighting up electronically.

There are so many reasons people of all backgrounds are turning to vapor cigarettes, and with all of their benefits, it only makes sense that Hollywood has embraced them. With all the pressure to keep looking as young as possible, tobacco can be a severe detriment, causing a crazy amount of aging to the skin and staining the teeth. And then there are all the health factors that loom no matter who you are, if you are a smoker. And with more positive trends towards health and wellbeing, electronic cigarettes greatly improve daily life and allow smokers to still have nicotine.

Recently, e-cigs even made a cameo in the movie The Tourist, in a scene with two of the hottest Hollywood A-listers, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. While the focus was definitely not on the subject of electronic smoking, Johnny Depp was prominently featured using one on a train, demonstrating the accessibility. If that doesn’t solidify the mass arrival of e-cigarettes, I don’t know what does!

 

Love Your Smile: Use E-Cigs

Above any accessory, any fashion statement, perhaps the most attractive thing someone can wear is a smile. Any poll sharing exclusive results about what each of the sexes finds particularly attractive in others, a big happy smile usually tops the list. One of the most awesome reasons e-cigarettes are better for you, opposed to tobacco cigarettes is because they keep your smile beaming and bright. Plenty of smokers become extremely self conscious about the staining on their teeth. It can cause them to refrain from smiling in public, and especially when cameras start flashing.

Everyone knows how detrimental tobacco can be to the body. It wreaks such havoc through numerous bodily systems, and can kill from the inside out. Smokers face all varieties of scary diseases and illnesses, and the mouth is one of the most vulnerable areas. Tobacco literally rots the teeth slowly, all the while depositing the dreadful, immensely harmful tar directly onto them.

Electronic cigarettes contain NO TAR, NO SMOKE, and none of those dangerous chemicals loaded into ordinary cigs. When you use them, you are not leaving your mouth susceptible to the effects of these things. Tobacco tar is heavy, dark, and sticky. It stains anything it comes into contact with. Walls, hands, teeth; all are well known surfaces tar adheres to. Often the condition of our exterior can be very telling of what’s going on inside our bodies. Skin is the body’s largest organ, and it will show if you are properly hydrated, consuming the right foods, and if you are in overall generally good health! It’s not foolproof, of course, but it is a good indicator. If your skin is dull from smoking, imagine what it’s doing on the inside. Tobacco rots the teeth, and staining is just the beginning.

By using alternative cigarettes, you begin to remove the risk of cancers and teeth staining because if there is no smoke or tar present, your body will begin to repair itself. Many e-cig users have found in a relatively short amount of time, that their teeth begin to lose the tarnished facade. This comes as a huge blessing for many smokers because brownish yellow teeth can be a huge source of embarrassment.

Why let cigarettes slow you down when you could have a radiant smile? Everyone deserves to be happy and to smile freely. Don’t subject your smile to chemicals, carcinogens, and tar. Smokeless cigarettes are the perfect alternative, and for more than just having a lovely, pearly grin, they are loaded with benefits!

Get Fit With EverSmoke This Summer!

It seems that everyone is looking to get a little bit healthier these days. Whether it’s incorporating more nutritious foods into their daily diets, exercising more, or dropping a bad habit in favor of a healthier way of doing something. At EverSmoke, we are really excited about the products we make because we are really committed to helping our customers live a better lifestyle, and giving them options to have more control over their nicotine habits.

If you are a smoker, it has never been easier to make smart decisions regarding your health by switching to e-smokes. Many users have been amazed by how revitalized they feel when they change to electronic, and begin to feel the effects that come with alleviating your body of smoke. With 25% off all electronic cigarette starter kits, these prices make it impossible not to at least try them out to see for yourself!

When you switch from traditional cigarettes to our smokeless vapor cigarettes, you are instantly doing your body better by:

1. Avoiding the tar, which is the culprit responsible for accumulating in the lungs, and causing much destruction.

2. Breathing in vapor instead of smoke.

3. Not exposing yourself to the carcinogens that are inherent in all cigarettes.

4. Giving your lungs a chance to breathe properly, bettering any exercise you may be doing.

5. Saving money so you have extra cash for a gym membership, yoga and pilates classes, maybe even a personal trainer.

6. Protecting yourself against such scary diseases as emphysema and lung cancer.

7. Allowing yourself to heal quicker and easier from common colds.

8. Avoiding the tar buildup on your teeth, which means you will have a more radiant smile.

9. Protecting your vision from the harm of tobacco tar.

10. Encouraging better performance from your heart and lungs. Consider the dangerous way cigarette smoke reduces circulation by narrowing the arteries. One of the key factors to cardio exercise is the ability of the body to pump blood (ahem, circulate) and the lungs to enable good, deep breathing. Dropping the tobacco cigarettes encourage both!

It’s really old news how unhealthy cigarettes are, and most smokers have tried to quit at one time or another. While we never proclaim our e-cigarettes to have the powers to enable people to quit smoking, we proudly present an alternative to cigarettes, and an alternative to getting your nicotine in smoke form.

Success Story of the Week: Nicole Bowerman

This week’s Success Story comes from the awesome Nicole Bowerman. We love to hear about how we’ve helped our customers, so many thanks to Nicole for sending this sweet story to us! Enjoy!

Hi! I’m Nicole, and I am really excited to tell you about my amazing experience using EverSmoke e-cigarettes. I am a pretty avid swimmer and triathlete, and being a smoker is not really acceptable. I don’t even know why I started smoking in the first place, but it was definitely a habit worth quitting. I found out about them from my friend, Shaina, who was using them very happily, and was really vocal about how much she loves them. She was always trying to convince me to try her e-cigs, good friend that she is. Since I was a pretty heavy smoker, and knew I would feel much better if I quit (or found an alternative), I decided to take her advice and try her’s. I liked them instantly, not surprisingly, and was pretty set on ordering my own starter kit and accessories.

I went with the Ultimate Plus Starter Kit, because of it’s many accessories, and the number of cartridges it comes with. It is such a great kit, with an impressive selection of different products to choose from. The Personal Charging Case, in my opinion, is very much worth it alone. I have had a wonderful experience, as a whole, with these e-cigarettes, and am so grateful for the ability they gave me to change my ways without compromising my comfort level. They feel (in all aspects) so much like ordinary cigarettes that using them feels natural and normal.

Having something other than tobacco is a huge blessing. Doing exercise, especially a lot of intense cardio means that I need as much lung capacity as possible. Which unfortunately become hindered with tobacco use, especially because of the tar buildup within the lungs themselves. Really soon after I started using my e-cigarettes daily, I felt my lungs begin to have the capacity to expand more. It wasn’t long before I saw a real difference in my actual performance, feeling physically stronger and having more stamina. I think I really took for granted the ability to actually breathe properly before I started smoking, because one I went to electronic smokes, the difference was really like night and day.

So, now matter who you are and what your lifestyle is like, if you are a smoker, you should give electronic cigarettes a try. You never know what will come of it until you try them, and if you go with EverSmoke as I did, you;ve got nothing to lose!
