Why is Everyone Switching E-Smoking?

reasons to switch to vapingIt seems these days that smokers are switching to vaping all the time, and in greater numbers. Here’s a look at why!

  1. Technology: It’s everywhere. Technology has seeped into every nook, cranny, and aspect of our lives, and in many ways, improved it. Digital smoking has enabled smokers to have a more modern, simplified, cleaner way to smoke.

  2. Savings: Everyone wants to save more money, and factoring in how expensive smoking cigarettes is, alternatives are a total necessity. Vaping can save smokers thousands of dollars every year!

  3. Enjoyment: For many, vaping is vastly more enjoyable than smoking, and it becomes as much of a hobby out of enjoyment, as a craving for nicotine.

  4. Freedom: Who doesn’t need more? Freedom from ashtrays, from having to be in specific places to smoke, from feeling like a leper anytime you want to smoke… vaping offers much more ability to simply enjoy the process.

  5. Options: The amount of different options vapers have opposed to smokers is beyond compare. Different devices, ways to charge, accessories, flavors, nicotine levels, liquid ratios; it’s astounding and amazing!

  6. Convenience: Having smoking fit into your lifestyle, instead of having to work around it all the time is major. Convenience is a big part of what e-cigarettes offer!

  7. No smoke = none of the problems of smoke. Smoke is pretty awful, and it leaves behind a foul residue, AKA tar. No one likes secondhand smoke, and once you leave it behind, and get used to the clean essence of vapor, you’ll most likely never look back!

  8. No smell: Cigarette smoke and the lingering funk it leaves behind in its wake are just gross. They are the antithesis to clean, fresh air, and more akin to nasty, musty, and dingy.

  9. No stigma: While some people saunter through life never caring what others think, for those who do care about what others around them think, the stigma of smoking is not comfortable. It’s a reality for smokers that they are often looked down upon, and it’s rather nice to shed this image when one becomes a vaper.

  10. No tobacco: because tobacco is the root of the problem. It is the part of the cigarette that requires burning. It is the part that creates smoke. It is the part that causes the most harm. Without tobacco, cigarettes are rendered useless. Most smokers are thrilled to leave the tobacco behind because they know that it is the worst part of smoking.

Having an alternative option such as vaping has allowed smokers to enjoy what they love about smoking, in a much cleaner, simpler, more enjoyable way, without all of the negatives. Smokers are switching because they are finding their needs met in a better way. Technology is amazing, isn’t it?

What Awaits You When Switching to E-Cigarettes

Switch to E-CigsAfraid to make the switch to vaping? Scared to let go of your past dependence in exchange for a better way to enjoy your daily life, and nicotine without the baggage? Here are some of our favorite reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes, in case you need a reminder. Millions of vapers have made the switch, and haven’t looked back. What are you waiting for?

-A Tobacco-Free Body: Being free from tobacco benefits nearly every facet of your health, and switching to an alternative method of smoking that does not involve tobacco is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

-A Smoke-Free Home: The tar from tobacco cigarettes is sticky, gooey, and has the capacity to leave behind nasty yellow stains on the teeth, hands, and practically anything it comes into contact with over an extended period of time. In the home, it can stain your walls, carpets, upholsteries, and nearly anything porous, leaving behind a tell-tale discoloration, as well as a musty, funky smell. Vaping, on the hand doesn’t!

-Tastier Meals: Cigarette smoke destroys your taste buds and your sense of smell, the two components that are responsible for your ability to taste things. Once you stop smoking, your sense of taste begins to recover. This is one of the best parts of switching to vaping.

-A More Dazzling Smile: Cigarettes can do a number on your oral health, and destroy your teeth, making your smile atrocious. Definitely not something to smile about.

-More Money in Your Wallet: Everyone needs more, and vaping is much more cost effective.

-Peace of Mind: Knowing you aren’t part of the global pollution problem is a great thing, even if you are of the responsible sort and dispose of your cigarette butts properly. Tobacco cigarettes are the world’s most polluted item; it’s nice to know you aren’t adding to the problem.

-Smelling Fresh and Clean: Smelling like you’ve been in a bar all night isn’t exactly a sexy smell! Vapers love carrying the scent of fresh air with them everywhere they go, knowing no one will be put off by their smoky smell.

So if you are still smoking cigarettes, why not give e-cigs a try? Look at all the things you’ve got to lose, and how much you have to gain!

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!

Some Tips for Making the Switch

130023977__436746cIf you are a smoker, or a former smoker, you know that tobacco cigarettes are one of the hardest habits to ditch. So many smokers have embraced the possibilities of electronic cigarettes, and they have found an incredible compromise with them; similar feel, similar taste, and nicotine without the tobacco smoke.

-Don’t expect your tobacco cigarette cravings to disappear immediately. Of course, it varies from one user to the next, but if you prepare yourself to deal with cravings you will be able to handle them better.

-Transitioning to e-cigarettes is easier for some more than others; for some it goes quickly and within a week they’ve made the switch completely. For others it can take a few months.

-If you think switching will be difficult for you, allow yourself time to slowly lessen your tobacco use while alternating with e-cigarettes until you’re comfortable.
