Dealing with the Snow: Enjoying e-cigs no matter what the weather

Winter Snow Storm Hammers Northeastern USThis year’s nonstop onslaught of inclement weather throughout the US has seen unprecedented amounts of snow and crazy conditions, attributed to the lovely polar vortex. Who ever heard of winter storms getting names? Wasn’t that a luxury once reserved only for hurricanes? It seems as though no sooner than areas recover from one storm, it’s time to prepare for the next blizzard and subsequent days of freezing temperatures.

While it can be a wonderful thing to be an e-smoker rather than a tobacco smoker during the winter, especially when you don’t have to bundle up just for a 5 minute smoke break, there are things to keep in mind if you will be vaping during this particularly brutal winter!

So if you are a vaper, how do you deal? Here are some tips for handling the weather and still enjoying your e-cigarettes in the process.

When Losing Power is of Concern:

How will you charge your e-cigarette batteries if you have no power? Obviously that is a big deal, however you do have options. Having a Portable Charging Case would be really ideal in this situation, as it can charge your batteries 4 times before it needs to be recharged. Another option would be to have a nice supply of disposable e-cigarettes, which do not require charging and they can be used right out of the package.

If You Leave Town:

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be done easily. Make sure to pack enough extra batteries, cartridges, a couple of versatile chargers, and whatever accessories you use to keep things simple. Even though you may have to leave quickly, it’s always important to have a supply of extra cartridges just in case of emergencies, you’re covered. Disposable e-cigarettes are also a great example of what to have on hand in case of an emergency.

If you’re Sticking it Out, Trying Not to Go Stir-Crazy:

Make sure your e-cigs are handy and make sure you’ve got plenty of gear to keep you warm. If you’ve got power, turn the heat up to a comfortable temperature; if you’ve got a fireplace take full advantage of it and get burning bright. Huddle close in to your loved ones and/or animals, and vape on dreaming of summer!

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.

Surgeon General Adds to the Ills of Tobacco Smoke

Quit-Smoking-CigarettesWe all know how negative tobacco cigarettes are, however 50 years into the war against tobacco, scientists are still finding new links between smoking and disease. In the most recent report to be released from the surgeon general, various factors were examined, revealing the current state of smoking in America, and new diseases to be attributed to tobacco.

While this probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows how toxic cigarettes are, it sure does give good reason for smokers to stay as far away from tobacco as possible, and make the switch to electronic smoking as an alternative. While the number of smokers is down drastically since 1964, when the surgeon general declared smoking to increase death 42% of adults were smoking, today the number steadies around 18%.

The newest report of diseases cigarette smoking contributes to include rheumatoid arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, macular degeneration, and erectile dysfunction, as well as two more types of cancer; liver and colorectal, and for mothers who smoke during pregnancy, infants can be born with cleft palate defects as a result.

The number of people who die each year from smoking-related causes is approximately half a million worldwide, with lung cancer still being the largest cause. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female; the death rate among smokers equally affects men and women. Interestingly, as smoking rates have decreased, so have the number of lung cancer diagnoses at a rate of 3% among men, and 1% among women.

Also covered in the report were not only the medical statistics on tobacco and disease, but the financial effects of smoking related illnesses, which are costing the nation $130 billion, and an additional $150 billion annually due to lost productivity.

So what is the nation doing about the smoking problem? The one measure that has always seemed to work is raising the price of cigarettes. It has been found that for every 10% price increase, the rate of smoking drops 4%.

As an alternative, if you are a smoker, consider switching to electronic cigarettes. With no tobacco and no chance for smoke, you can steer clear of the stigma. And just to add to their many benefits, the cost is considerably lower! Millions have made the switch and have not looked back; check out our selection of e-cigarette starter kits today!

Tobacco Giant Philip Morris Entering Fast Growing Electronic Smoking Market

A few days ago, Philip Morris International announced it’s getting into the e-cigarette business, after dismissing the product in July according to The Washington Post. The tobacco giant will start selling e-cigarettes which directly compete with its tobacco product, since nicotine vapor is gaining popularity as an alternative to smoking by a growing number of Americans.

The world’s biggest tobacco company is spending $100 million to develop e-cigarettes that could destroy its 160 year legacy in the tobacco business.

There are three main reasons why Philip Morris is getting to the vapor smoking market:

  1. Competitors are already making e-cigarettes. A few of Philip Morris’s competitors have either developed their own e-cigarette or bought startups in the fast-growing electronic smoking market.
  2. Tobacco cigarettes are already disappearing. Fewer Americans are smoking than ever before, according to Gallup. Tobacco has been lucrative for well over 100 years, but companies are accepting the fact that products are facing a long-term decline. They have no choice but to develop a new product.
  3. The international tobacco market is slowing down. Philip Morris has always had strong name recognition, deep market penetration and the addictive nature of its tobacco cigarettes has made it internationally popular. 30 percent of its market share has been primarily in Southeast Asia. But the “cash-generating machine,” as Morningstar has referred to it, has started to fail in sales.

The key reasons Philip Morris wants a piece of the e-cigarette market is that the product doesn’t have many of the social and health challenges tobacco smoking faces but still deliver nicotine that users crave.

Celebrate the New Year with a New Lifestyle!

eversmokInHandElectronic cigarettes have become the “it” thing for smokers who’ve lost their taste for traditional cigarettes. Do you think this is the year you will be making the switch? It’s almost a cliché how many smokers make quitting their resolution, however why quit when you can switch? Here are a few good reasons to do it now, because e-cigs are hotter than ever, and we’re sure you won’t regret it!

-Won’t you feel better knowing you are not smoking tobacco anymore? Traditional cigarettes contain over 4,000 different toxic chemical additives, in addition to tobacco itself which leaves behind tar, smells awful, and makes a mess.

-You’ll smile more radiantly. Whether it’s from the happiness you get from no longer smoking traditional cigarettes, or because your teeth look nicer without the tobacco stains, we bet you’ll be more inclined to smile!

-You’ll save a lot of money. We all know cigarettes are crazy expensive, and with electronic cigarettes costing a fraction in comparison, we are sure you’ll love the savings.

-E-cigs give you more control of your smoking, and we know you’ll like having more of a say when it comes to when and where you smoke. You also get to choose what kind of e-cig model you use, what flavors you want, and what nicotine level you’d like.

-You can permanently say goodbye to ashtrays and cigarette butts. You will absolutely love how much cleaner e-cigarettes are, and how much less work they take.

-Your conscience will rest more easily knowing you are doing one less thing to harm the environment; yes just smoking cigarettes is bad for the planet. E-cigs are reusable, and they do not produce a fraction of the waste that cigarettes create.

-You’ll officially be done with tobacco cigarettes! Among all of the many positives of switching to electronic cigarettes, just being through with them, and able to live a cleaner, smoke-free lifestyle will be more than worth it!

Enjoying E-cigs in the Company of Others

Smoking-e-cigarette_1Cigarettes are not people friendly. They create a lot of problems, and usually you have to use them outdoors to keep things safe, convenient, and nontoxic for others.

This is one of the many huge reasons electronic cigarettes are replacing them; they offer smokers a lot more options and a lot more versatility when using them. Quite importantly, they are able to be used around those who are not fond of traditional cigarette smoke without the same problems; think second hand smoke and smelly fumes.

E-cigs go anywhere, and they can be used quite discretely. I have seen people using them just about everywhere in public, and have never witnessed an issue. Having been exposed firsthand, I know personally there is no smell at all when those clouds of vapor are exhaled. While the looks and feeling imitate a traditional cigarette, for bystanders they are nothing alike.

When you are at a gathering, it can be annoying and difficult to always have to step outside to have a smoke. It can break up great conversations, and take you away from what you’d rather be doing, like enjoying the company of others, or relaxing wherever you happen to be. Being able to stay where you are, and vape without inconveniencing anyone makes enjoying your time that much better.

With the popularity of e-cigs growing, they are becoming more and more accepted in public places. Most nonsmokers don’t take issue with electronic cigarettes, however keep in mind that not everyone is completely familiar with them yet. If you happen to come across someone who is unsure about your e-cigarettes, and happens to be reluctant in being exposed, all you have to do is explain how very different they are from standard cigarettes.

When it comes to smoking, a good time can be a great time if you switch to e-cigarettes. You’ll enjoy yourself more, your nonsmoking friends will thank you, and you’ll be able to concentrate on what’s most important: having fun!

How Much Nicotine is Enough?

IMAG0721When you’re choosing a nicotine level, you may get somewhat confused not knowing where to begin. How much is truly enough? Here is some insight to help guide you along if you’re stuck wondering where to begin without losing any satisfaction when your cartridges arrive!

EverSmoke cartridges are designed in 5 different nicotine strengths: 24mg, 18mg, 12mg, 6mg, and 0mg.

Some people find that starting from the strongest level, as they get a feel for it works well. However, in the same light, 24mg cartridges are very potent, and may even be too strong for some smokers. Other users prefer the method of starting at 0mg and working their way up to a heavier amount, to see how things work with less nicotine.

Another general rule of thumb for smokers is to compare their cigarettes to e-cigarettes. For example if you currently smoke unfiltered reds, or very strong cigarettes, go for the strongest nicotine. It’ll agree with you best. 18mg cartridges are very strong as well, but a tad lower than using 24mg’s. If you smoke lights, 12mg cartridges will do. Ultra lights, 6mg will be comparable. If you smoke nicotine-free cigarettes, then 0mg cartridges will obviously be what you want!

Because our cartridges are sold in packs of 15, 30, and 45, when you’re first starting out we highly encourage users to order smaller packs of different nicotine levels and flavors to find what agrees with them. We really see the benefit in trying a few different things to get to know our products for the best experience possible.

And, even after you figure it all out, find your favorite flavors and find the nicotine level of your dreams, every now and then, reevaluate where you stand. In time, you may find dropping your nicotine level is easy to do, and may even increase your satisfaction. Same goes for upping it. Transitioning to e-cigs can be easy, and very enjoyable! We offer really diverse products, and we really encourage open-mindedness for the most satisfaction.

 

Taking Care of Your E-Cigarettes

While e-cigarettes are generally low maintenance products, there is good reason to take good care of them, and sometimes go a little out of your way to show them some love. After all, they do offer so many benefits, and they work exceptionally hard to satisfy your nicotine cravings. Fortunately, taking care of your e-cigarettes does not have to be a science, or take a dramatic amount of energy.

EverSmoke e-cigarettes are technological marvels, and they are designed to be exceptionally durable. However, knowing how to take care of them from day one will help make them last as long as possible and sure to give you the great performance and exquisite vapor you’ve come to expect.

Start from the Beginning

Good care should start as soon as you get your e-cigarettes. When you first receive your starter kit, while you may be tempted to start vaping right away, don’t. Instead, charge your batteries up to 100% before you start, as this ensures your batteries’ performance over the long run.

When it comes to charging after the first time, the best way to know it’s time to charge up is when the indicator light shows that it’s needed. This will be before your battery gets down to 0%, which is the ideal time to charge for long lasting battery strength.

Concerning Cartridges

Do not try to open cartridges; it will most likely damage them!

Cartridges are going to be continuously changed out. When attaching them, make sure not to tighten them too tightly, because this will cause them to be difficult to remove, and they will not function up to par.

When it comes to storing your cartridges, cool, dry places are ideal. It’s best to keep them away from direct sunlight, high temperatures, and moisture for the best functioning and performance.

So there you have it! A few tips to prolong your e-cigarettes and ensure they offer you plenty of vapor, great performance, excellent flavor, and a very cigarette-like experience! Hopefully these tips will come in handy, and give you the kind of satisfaction you’re deserving!

Great Reasons to Make the Switch to E-Cigs

girl_smoking_electronic_cigarette10-198x300Traditional cigarettes are beginning to look increasingly old fashioned compared to e-cigs. If you’re still smoking tobacco, there are some pretty poignant reasons why vaping has become so popular. Here is a look at some of the top reasons making the switch makes life better.

Designed with Similar Appeal

E-cigs look, taste, and feel really similar. They were in fact, made to recreate the experience, and much attention was implemented to come as close as possible. While most smokers tend to stick to what they know, many are realizing the immense pleasure that lies in electronic smoking. The feeling is remarkably close, with a draw that has great resistance, a throat hit that packs a punch, and intense flavor that taste like cigarettes (or ventures off into new territory). The body of the e-cigs are made to look and feel like the real thing, only they last a whole lot longer, offer amazing technology, and are much easier to handle.

Vape Wherever You Want

So imagine, by vaping you don’t have to give up any of the aspects you love, and you have the ability to truly enjoy all the sensations without the tobacco, smoke, horrendous smell, and lingering odor. You can use them nearly anywhere, and you ultimately gain a great amount of freedom. Without any second hand smoke, the options are endless. Most public places have no bans of them, and many restaurants, bars, and nightclubs openly welcome e-cig use!

E-Cigs Save Money

Cigarette smoking is an unbearably expensive habit. Not only are the prices high per pack, the toll they exhaust on your health and the additional costs necessary just to maintain the habit are mind numbing. When you can drop less than $100 on an e-cig starter kit that includes a hefty assortment of cartridges, each of which lasts between 1-2 packs of cigarettes, the costs more than even out. In fact, they go way down when you switch!
