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!

Shocking Place for Electronic Cigarettes to Sell Like Hotcakes

Shasta County Jail

The New York Times recently published an interesting article, “In Rural Jails, E-Cigarettes Are a Calming Vapor.”

The article juxtaposes government and school bans of these smokeless devices that are rapidly appearing from coast to coast, with one unusual place they are being highly welcomed… the rural county jail.

While most prisons and jails prohibit the use of traditional cigarettes due to fire hazards and secondhand smoke, more and more sheriffs are opting to sell electronic cigarettes to their inmates for practical reasons. The biggest of which is to help control the mood swings of inmates going through nicotine withdrawal.

Evidently, in at least seven states, county jails have allowed the sale of a few flavors of e-cigarettes to inmates. Not surprisingly, electronic cigarettes now top the list of the most coveted items in jail commissaries.

Even though e-cigarettes are banned in federal prisons, both Chinese and American manufacturers have started producing a “jail-safe” device using plastic instead of metal. Any why not? The inmate market is a captive audience (pun intended).

One Sheriff in Nebraska uses them as incentives—those inmates who are not a good boy or girl get theirs taken away. In December he bought 200 for the 32-prisoner jail, and sold out by mid-January.

A Tennessee Sheriff’s motive for introducing them was to create additional revenues after several years of budget cuts.

His main goal is to create a pay raise for his guards who are overworked and earn a top salary of $10.58 per hour. He hopes to collect profits of between $20 and $50,000 from the sale of electronic cigarettes this year.

The popularity of the device has earned some jails profits of more than 400 percent per e-cig. They are sold to inmates for $8 to $30 apiece depending on the number of puffs generated. Profits go either into the county’s general fund or directly into the jail’s budget.

Regardless of all the unanswered questions concerning electronic cigarettes, their popularity has increased considerably in the past three years. According to the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association, the number of varieties has now exceeded 350 and sales globally are almost $2 billion.

Many of the county sheriffs extol e-cigarettes for the reduction in tension and outright violence among their inmates. When nerves are on edge, minor disagreements can escalate quickly and get physical, which endangers the safety of both the guards and inmates.

It would appear that in jails where they sell electronic cigarettes—allowing inmates to get their nicotine fix—there are fewer altercations.

The Nebraska Sheriff believes e-cigarettes have been influential in keeping his inmates calm and orderly. “The thing I like about it is it controls the guy,” he said. “We had four or five fights last week. One guy who’d had a fight asked for an e-cigarette and it calmed him down. It’s not meant to help inmates, it’s meant to help my guys.”

A Macon County chief deputy sheriff pointed out that the reduction in inmate fights after making e-cigarettes available had led to a reduction in trips to the hospital.

He said, “The cost of fixing a broken nose is $2,000, so I figure we’re saving the county some money.”

Are You In One of the Top 5 E-Cig Groups?

E-cigs appeal to many types of people for different reasons. And their ages and professions vary as much as there are brands of smokeless cigarettes being hawked.

Interestingly though, certain groups are particularly well-suited to enjoy e-cigs. Here’s a review of the top five groups that find these smokeless gems to be their pot of gold.

Gamer Community

In the US, according to Wikipedia, the average video game player is 30 and has been playing video games for over 12 years. Gamers tend to spend a great deal of time indoors where tobacco smoking can be prohibited. But smoking tobacco in front of a computer can lead to a build-up of gunk inside the system and cause damage. Smokeless cigarettes don’t produce anything to build-up in the first place.

Many gamers play online with other opponents, and hate waiting for someone to return from a smoke break. But smokeless cigarettes are fast and easy, allowing gamers to return literally within moments.

Bartenders

The public cigarette ban has left many smokers out in the cold. Few bars allow smoking now, but most smokers want to enjoy a cigarette while drinking and socializing. These things just go together!

Patrons having to go outside for a cigarette pose several problems for the bartender (and the owner of the bar). The more time a customer spends outside, the less he drinks. Instead of making tips on drinks, bartenders polish glasses. Breaking up a customer’s steady purchase of alcohol, decreases the amount of drinks bought.

Bartenders make more money when customers are inside and comfortable, where a simple nod of the head communicates a sale.

Food Service Staff

Working in a restaurant can be a hectic job at times. Even if waiting on just a single table, there is certainly not enough time to go out back and smoke a complete cigarette—and still get a decent tip anyway.

Smokeless cigarettes, on the other hand, don’t require much time. Most of the time, two or three puffs off an e-cig is enough to satisfy any urge.

Landlords & Homeowners & Renters

Cigarette smoke leaves a film on windows and walls that can be difficult to remove. Falling asleep with a tobacco cigarette in your hand can have tragic consequences. Burn holes on tables and floors are common occurrences for those who smoke regular cigarettes.

Electronic vapor from smokeless cigarettes doesn’t have all the particulates that build up and cause damage and yellowing. E-cigs have no flame, so they can’t burn anything or anyone.

Why New York City is Banning E-Smoking in Public and Are They Alone?

vaping in NY

For over a decade, New York City has enforced a city-wide ban on smoking cigarettes in bars, restaurants, parks, beaches, plazas, and other public places. And as of last month, electronic cigarettes have been added to the list of publicly banned tobacco products.

New York’s City Council and Mayor Michael Bloomberg approved the measure to ban e-smoking in public almost unanimously (43-8). As one of his last acts as mayor, Bloomberg, who has advocated for a number of public health initiatives during his term —like the prohibition on sodas larger than 16 ounces—passed the proposal right on the heels of making New York the first major city to raise the age for buying tobacco to 21.

Vapor smokers in the Big Apple and around the country are outraged at the new restriction, which will take effect in about three months, saying that to categorize electronic cigarettes with tobacco products is misleading and harmful to the mission of creating a smoke-free New York.

However, New York City officials don’t see it that way. In an interview with the New York Times, Councilman James Gennaro, one of the leading supporters of the ban, along with Commissioner Thomas Farley, said that the loophole allowing vapers to “light up” where smokers could not was creating confusion.

“People are lighting up electronic cigarettes in restaurants, creating conflict with other patrons and waiters who have to mediate, they said. Mr. Gennaro said children who could not differentiate between regular and electronic smoking were getting the message that smoking is socially acceptable.”

Farley admitted that although more research is need to know the potential long-term affects of e-smoking, the council decided to act now in order to prevent jeopardizing the progress they’ve made on smoking in the last few years.

Obviously, local e-cig retailers and vapers are disappointed with the ruling.

Only a handful of places have instituted public e-smoking bans or similar measures —among them Arkansas, Utah, North Dakota, and neighboring New Jersey. However, other major cities, like L.A. and Chicago, are now considering similar proposals in light of New York’s example.

E-Cigarettes Hitting the Mainstream

20130928_WBP001_0E-cigarettes have really become a mainstream occurrence as their popularity has exploded. In public places all over the country, on TV, in advertisements, in movies, their visibility has tremendously increased, and their reception is certainly prevalent as millions of people have accepted them as alternatives to traditional tobacco.

Countless celebrities are e-smoking, have been seen out and about using e-cigarettes, and certain electronic cigarette companies have even tapped celebs, such as Courtney Love and Jenny McCarthy for advertising. Stars have totally embraced the vapor cigarette as a trendy alternative to harmful tobacco, and many have been exceedingly proud to tout theirs around town. Reflecting on popular culture, it shows that not only are these products getting plenty of use in Hollywood, but people all over the world have replaced their tobacco cigarettes with them, and with exceptionally good results.

However, the popularity of electronic smoking goes far beyond the who’s-who of Hollywood. In a survey done by Wells Fargo Tobacco Talk in 2012, approximately 30,000 tobacco wholesalers, retailers and trade professionals believe that the hype around e-cigarettes is here to stay, and these alternatives are having a much greater impact than simply a current trend. As the numbers in sales have piled in, in 2013, electronic cigarettes have proven to be an industry raking in over $1 billion in sales, with more than 2.5 million users – which is not an easy feat for a fledgling industry! Suffice it to say, sales and usage of these products are expanding at a voracious rate.

As of 2011, 1 out of 5 tobacco smokers had at least tried an e-cigarette, and this figure is expected to be lower than actual 2013 numbers because many more smokers have switched to e-smoking since that time.

As expected though, with the popularity comes scrutiny, and this has led to immense discussion on whether e-cigarettes should be taxed the same as traditional cigarettes, and whether they should be regulated by government agencies. Currently, most regulation of e-cigarettes is done at the local and federal levels, and it allows for a great amount of leniency

As the industry expands in size and customers, it is expected that the FDA will begin to have more formal involvement. Expecting this, many e-cigarette companies have already begun measures to prepare themselves

As the popularity of e-cigarettes increases, right now is a great time to be an e-smoker or switching to tobacco. No matter where this industry is headed in terms of regulations, more and more people are turning to these electric alternatives and experiencing only positives.

It’s safe to say, e-cigarettes are not going anywhere! For more information on how to get started, to learn more about electronic smoking, and to check out our product offerings, visit us at www.eversmoke.com!

Starter Kits or E-Cigarette Disposables: How to Know What’s Best for You

img_eversmoke_disposableHow do you know which electronic cigarette alternative will work best for you? If you are new to vaping, it can be difficult to choose, as both are designed for new users and experienced e-smokers and basically come down to personal preference.

The following is a look at the advantages of both.

Advantages of E-Cigarette Starter Kits

E-cigarette starter kits and e-cigarette disposables have many things in common, as well as their separate perks. Kits offer the benefits of being reusable, cost effective, and quite versatile. Many people appreciate that cartridges come in a very large array of flavors to choose from. They are also more environmentally friendly, as they produce very little waste.

There are several aspects to e-cigarette starter kits that make them seem less appealing, like risks and costs.

For instance, some smokers are reluctant to purchase starter kits because they are afraid they may not like the products. Most starter kits range in price from $40 to $200, and many don’t want to invest their money without liking the products.

On the positive side however, there are many companies that offer money-back guarantees and refunds, so if you are not satisfied, you are free to return the products.

And, while the initial cost may cause some to balk, the savings from e-cigarettes compared to traditional cigarettes is dramatic, and most smokers are quite happy at how much they begin to save after the first month.

Advantages of Disposable E-Cigarettes

These are the most common, easy to find alternative cigarettes. E-Cigarette disposables are excellent for their easiness, and many users start off with them because they are readily available at gas stations, convenience stores, and truck stops. They are single-piece units, and made to be used and then discarded. Each lasts about the length of two packs of traditional cigarettes and they require no set up, charging, changing of cartridges, or maintenance.

They are perfect for beginners because they are simple, easy to use, and do not require one to spend a large chunk of money right from the start.

It gives you the experience of e-smoking without commitment.

Disposables are also perfect for people who have little time for charging batteries, as well as those who are traveling. They need nothing more than being opened from their packaging to be used!

The aspects of disposable e-cigarettes that can be considered less than desirable are that there are typically less options with them in terms of flavor, style, and nicotine level. They are also typically more expensive than reusable e-cigarettes, and they do create more waste than their counterparts.

While only you will know your personal preferences and tastes, e-cigarette kits and disposables offer amazing benefits both. Choosing one style over the other may work for you, but in the end, most e-smokers tend to use both because of their individual positive aspects. Weigh your options, experiment, and if all else still seems confusing, don’t hesitate to contact the company you are interested in to ask for guidance!
