Dealing with Stress, Without Tobacco

Quitting smoking can be really stressful. Some people start smoking in their teenage years, and later on spend many years jsut try to quit and shake themselves of the nasty habit. It’s not easy! Even decades after conquering a cigarette addiction, the allure and desire to smoke can still remain, and it can take an awful lot of willpower and strength to not give and smoke.

There are several levels to smoking cigarettes that are problematic. First of all, many people begin smoking to help deal with stress. Nicotine feels good, and it used to be acceptable nearly anywhere. It was a quick fix, a quick pick me up, and the only thing that kept you from obtaining a pack of them was being under the age of 18. Easier than nearly anything else that could calm you down in a moment’s notice, right?

Recent years have drastically changed the landscape, and with cigarettes not being tolerated in many public places whatsoever, it’s actually become more stressful to be a smoker. The limitations are only getting more strict, and it’s a somewhat difficult habit to maintain.

Another aspect is health. Cigarettes are not healthy in any sense of the word, and smoking them can cause you to stress about your health. They feel so good, but are so bad. They are so easy to use, but they create so many problems.  Is all of this stress over cigarettes worth it? If stress is also a pretty big cause of death, maybe we’re all just better off smoking and not stressing? Wrong.

Electronic cigarettes can really take the edge off. They have come in a time where cigarettes are totally getting phased out, and are offering smokers a great option in lieu of all the stressful, complicated burdens of tobacco. They offer the same stress relief, the same nicotine pleasure, the same feeling you get as you feel your entire body soften as you exhale the vapor. That same all-over relaxed sensation that comes even easier when you’re using an e-cigarette battery to vape instead of a cigarette. It’s pretty amazing!

Electronic smokes, however, are more than just a quick fix. More than just a brilliant alternative, they are the future of smoking. They give freedom where tobacco gave restraints, they offer cleanliness where tobacco created a mess, they offer a cleaner environment where tobacco is a world-wide pollution problem, and they offer users a stress free way to smoke, with convenience and no nonsense!

 

Don’t Quit Cold Turkey!

What smoker has not tried quitting cold turkey style? It just seems so smart, so dramatic, a real way to kick cigarettes to the curb for real this time! Done, final, over, for good, but it just never really works out that way. Sure, people have successfully quit using this method, but it is certainly not easy and it definitely has a reputation for being really difficult and more likely to have you smoking rather than quitting.

When you quit cold turkey, you body kind of goes into shock. Think about it: regardless of how long you have been a smoker, your body is accustomed to that nicotine. You suddenly stop, once your body recognizes that it isn’t getting the substance it has been used to, it’s going to react. The mood swings, the anxiety, the cravings, the uncontrollable feeling of needing to have a smoke are not exaggerated by people who smoke!

So why put yourself through this? When you switch to e-cigarettes you can allow yourself a much gentler, much more sensible way to quit smoking. You won’t have to stop enjoying nicotine, while eliminating the negatives that come from smoke and tobacco. If you choose to eventually reduce your e-cigs cartridges to nicotine free, you can do that as well, as gradually as you wish.

Cold turkey is a nice idea, but it’s not fun. I guess that’s where the name came from. Who really enjoys “cold turkey?” Thanksgiving is right around the corner – it’s less than a week away! We are running our biggest electronic cigarette sale ever, and inviting you to take full advantage! It’s kinda like a “Black Friday” sale before Thanksgiving, and without all of the stress and chaos. With our phenomenal e-cigarette starter kits going for 65% off, you will be able to afford to stock up like never before, and purchase kits for every smoker you know! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and remember, no quitting cold turkey!

 

 

 

 

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.

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!

 

 

Study Reveals E-Cig Vapor is Safe Indoors

Even with electronic cigarettes being on the market, and their popularity expanding by the minute, there are still many people and many advocacy groups who warn that there may be dangers we don’t know about. How do we really know they are safe if there hasn’t been government testing? How do we know that they are not as dangerous as cigarettes are? How do we know if the vapor is okay to breathe in, especially in the second hand sense? While it is perfectly normal and rightful for these precautions to arise, testing is being done, and more and more research is being conducted. If e-cigarettes were inherently dangerous, they would not be allowed to be sold! And if you weigh the options, considering how drastically unhealthy tobacco cigarettes are, electronic cigarettes are a world apart. Just in terms of basics, they contain no tobacco, smoke, and they leave behind no tar; the three worst constituents of conventional cigarettes.

For anyone who second guesses the “harmless” vapor that is produced by electronic cigarettes, a study was just released showing that there is no risk in it. Unlike smoke from cigarettes, which is produced by burning tobacco and the other chemicals contained within the cigarette, the tobacco, and the filter, e-cig vapor is entirely different. When they are smoked indoors they present no dangers to those breathing in the same space.

The study was done at Clarkson University, in Potsdam New York, at the University’s Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science department, and it was published in the journal Inhalation Toxicology. It examined the compounds of several byproducts that are found in tobacco smoke, and compared the vapor of several well known electronic cigarette brands to determine whether the same compounds were found in the vapor. As they are completely different products, and how e-cigarettes work is vastly different from traditional cigarettes, it is kind of strange to compare them back to back. Regardless of that however, from what the study determined, the level of toxic chemicals in e-cig vapor when released into the air is so minute, that they have been declared to present no environmental danger for breathing indoors and do not compromise the air quality. While this was not the first study of this kind, it was the largest, looking at the broadest range of toxins. All have revealed similar findings.

This is pretty awesome news for the electronic cigarette community! What this means is that there is confirmation now on something we have been saying all along! While cigarettes are a major problem, especially when smoked indoors, this is not a similarity shared with electronic cigarettes. While there are groups advocating e-cigarette bans, most notably regarding indoor use, it is no longer a relavent argument.

Let’s do Without the Dangers of Tobacco

The level of consciousness in people seems to grow by the day. We are eschewing all the negatives we’ve grown used to, and questioning everything about what we consume. Whether it’s the things we buy, eat, use. Same goes for tobacco use- why use cigarettes anymore when we have the option of electronic?

It’s not like cigarettes and tobacco are responsible for just a small level of problems. The issues they cause stretch far and wide, while massively and negatively effecting people, the environment, and wildlife. They start out harming the individuals smoking them, and then the damage slowly begins spreading. The amount of diseases smokers are at risk for is a mile long, and the damage to the body they impose is just crazy. Second hand smoke is then a problem, carrying the same tar and carcinogens, affecting those in the same breathing space. Lung cancer, emphysema, asthma, heart problems are all common in people who have had prolonged exposure to second hand smoke, without ever having smoked a cigarette themselves. And even scarier to think about, is that for children of smokers, these risks remain the same. Why put your health, and the health of those around you at risk when you have the choice not to? Electronic cigarettes are so much better! No carcinogens, no smoke, no tar residue, no chemicals… They are safer and healthier method of smoking and having nicotine, without these kinds of compromises.

As for the dangerous impact on the environment, cigarette pollution is a major issue world wide. It kills wildlife, especially wetland birds, fish, and aquatic mammals who ingest discarded butts. And the dangers extend not just to the living creatures, but all those chemicals that are used in the creation of filters remain after the cigarette has been smoked. The butts left on the ground as little begin to degrade, and as they do, those harmful chemicals begin to make their way into the ground, into the ocean, into the streams, and throughout the environment. With e-cigs, these issues are not even a thought because disposing cartridges on the ground is much more difficult. Of course any irresponsible user can do that, they are less likely to however because they are not as easily flicked and forgotten.

Considering your health, the health of the people around you, and the health of the environment, don’t you think tobacco is better off being replaced by e-smokes? These are avoidable dangers, and a better quality of life is awaiting. Get yourself an e-cigarette starter kit today!

 

Get Your E-Cigs with Your Football Fix!

It’s that time of year again, people, football season! America’s favorite sport, making every weekend, thursday, and monday night prime time for getting locked into a game at your favorite sports bar, at a stadium, or right in your own living room. And unlike stinky tobacco cigarettes, if you’re using e-cigs, you won’t have to miss a minute of the game while you step outside to puff. Nor will you have to wait for commercials, half time, or if your team is losing to have a few stress relieving drags. You can puff where you like!

America’s favorite sport should be duly celebrated with fun, passion, good beer, great food, and a healthy dose of the competitive spirit. Football is always more fun when you watch with others, and most nonsmokers are never thrilled to have tobacco smoke wafting their way. Why should cigarettes be included when you can do it all smoke free? Then, should the game get you riled up enough to want to hit the backyard and do some throwing around of the football yourself, you surely won’t be so winded without the smoke!

Here’s how to make sure you and your love for nicotine are prepared for football season:

1: Get a starter kit. Go for the basics or go all out fancy, just make sure you get one. They are the best way to start if you aren’t already vaping. Hey, right now our “Fall Into a Better Lifestyle” autumn sale is going on, and e-cigarette starter kits are specially priced at 25% off!

2: Make sure you have extra cartridges. You never know when a game is going to have you on the edge of your seats, and have you puffing a little more than you expected. Go for festive flavors like Pina Colada, Peppermint, or Peach, or stick to the time tested favorites like Golden Tobacco, Classic Tobacco, Blue Tobacco, or Menthol!

3. Accessorize: make sure batteries are charged up, make sure your PCC is charged up and ready to go, and having back up, like a car adapter are totally essential.

4. Don’t forget about our new disposables! They are great for times like hitting a game when you want to carry as little with you as possible, or when you won’t have access to a charger.

So if you are chillin and tailgating with friends, watching games at the stadium, or at home, lighting up during a game is much nicer when you do it with vapor. The best thing about using electronic cigarettes is that no matter what you do for fun, no matter how you do things, everything is just better without the smoke. So happy football season, and may the best team come out on the winning end!

 

 

The Other Side of EverSmoke: Disposables

Very recently, we launched the newest addition to our dynamic lineup of alternative cigarette products: e-cigarette disposables. They come at a time when smokers are looking for great alternatives more than ever. They serve the purpose of offering a convenient option to beginners who want to see what EverSmoke is all about. However, they also provide current users the ability and freedom of a disposable unit for when the moment calls for it. They are perfect for traveling, and are always great to keep on hand, in your bag, or your just in case.

Sometimes life calls for even less of a hassle, and there are times that even the most convenient reusable e-cigarettes will take a backseat to life, making users wish they had the option of a throwaway. This is where our new disposables come in. They work just like our original line, only they are a prepackaged one-piece design: simply open it up and start vaping! There is no charging required at all, and they come in two of our most popular flavors: Classic Tobacco and Menthol. Lasting about 500 puffs, they are each comparable to about 2 packs of cigarettes. No risk, no commitment, and more freedom than any tobacco cigarette could possibly offer! They can go anywhere and be smoked anywhere!

They are extremely affordable, and for people who are just getting started, it’s like a no-risk way to jump right in without dropping the big bucks. They have been designed with EverSmoke’s signature level of integrity and class, ensuring that they will be every bit as pleasurable as our 2-piece model. The technology is all there, and this design ensures the vapor output and flavor are maximized on every puff. You will see the same orange LED light on the end, and the mouthpiece is the same exclusive silicon design as our reusable electronic cigarettes, preventing leakage and a feel that is as close to a cigarette as you will find in the e-cig world! Just one more option to keep things simple, and to make e-smoking your only method of smoking!

The Latest: E-Cigarettes Are Safe For the Heart

One more win for e-cigarettes! The latest news to come out regarding the smokeless alternatives to tobacco has revealed that studies done by physicians in Greece show that electronic cigarettes do not have any sort of negative effect on the heart. Unlike traditional cigarettes, which are proven to cause heart disease, vascular disease, destroy arteries and  the aorta. This data was a big find, and a very big boost to the ongoing argument regarding their safety.

Ever since e-cigarettes first emerged, there have been debates regarding their safety and whether or not they should be used until serious testing and data were released. While the skeptics remained, millions of users were still willing to try them and use them, under the premise that with cigarettes being so awfully unhealthy and loaded with dangers, how could e-cigarettes possibly be more problematic? For countless individuals, vapor cigs have proven to be life changing, offering smokers a world of conveniences they never imagined possible as smokers. The ability to control their habits, lessen their nicotine on their own accord, and especially the ability to puff only when they need one or two pulls, allows for e-cig users to really get a handle on their nicotine, all the while doing it without the danger of smoke.

With a myriad of brands available, users are often plagued by not knowing how to choose a brand. Sadly, many settle for cheaper, lesser quality store bought brands hoping for a fulfilling experience only to become turned off by the products. One suggestion is to research online before buying, and to read as many e-cig reviews as you can, based on top quality brands. EverSmoke users, across the board have been pleased and overjoyed at the results they have seen using our products. We have extremely strict standards, and do our own quality testing. While we cannot please every e-smoker’s tastes, we do pride ourselves in having exceptional products, and no customer has ever reported a dangerous or adverse health effect.

The latest research is showing what we’ve always known is true: that these are safe products, and now there is proof that they do not negatively affect the heart. While we do not have 100% research and regulations, saying that electronic cigarette products are entirely safe, there are millions of users worldwide, and many doctors even recommend them.

Success Story: Joseph

This week’s Success Story is from Joseph, a marketing professional living in Seattle, Washington. We love hearing about how our customers have switched their cigarette habits for e-cigs, the healthier alternative, so here is how our products have done just that for hime!

Hi, I’m Joseph. I work in the field of marketing, and am here to tell you today about how I have done the unthinkable (for me, anyway!). I did not think it was going  to be this smooth, this easy, or effective, but using electronic cigarettes from EverSmoke   was the ticket for me! I used to smoke a pack a day, all day long. If I didn’t finish the pack before bed, there was something wrong! You bet my clothes and apartment stunk, and after losing my job during the economic downturn, it was pretty crazy to be smoking. I had bigger bills and responsibilities to worry about, but man, cigarettes were still my first priority. Finally it got to where I was frustrated that I didn’t feel confident I was going to be    able to quit smoking, and it was then I decided to try e-cigarettes. I have friends who are big users, and everybody I know talks up EverSmoke, so they were my first choice. After i researched on the site a bit, I was very impressed with what I saw so I got a, e-cigarette starter kit right away. I went after the Premium Starter Kit, which turned out to be the right   one for me; nice accessories, good price for what I was getting. I decided that if I was going to have to spend money on my habit, I wanted to spend less, and have a healthier way.

In using it, from the start I found these e-cigarettes really easy to use and very comfortable. From the way it feels in my hand when I hold it, to the way it feels when I puff on it, it was nice. No one can say it feels 100% like a cigarette, but it’s close enough for me, and it didn’t take me long to change over. The vapor comes out clean and strong, hits well and tastes great: exactly what I wanted, exactly what I got! Professionally, it is much better because I am not self conscious all the time about if smell bad, or if I am taking too much time out of the work day to smoke. So, it has been great! I feel healthier, I know I am doing healthier just by using these, and the amount of money I save each month is probably around $100!
