Let’s get it out there. Some e-cigs look like robot penises. This fact leads many smokers to declare flatly that e-cigs are too bulky, too much to carry around and too awkward to ever serve as a replacement for the carcinogen-laden alternative.
This is another understandable concern from the smoker’s point of view, since many APVs look like you need a freaking degree in engineering to operate them at first glance.
One of the arguments often put forwards by current smokers is that e-cigs are actually ineffective for their intended purpose. It’s often said with an underlying smugness, an inherent assumption that tobacco cigs are “the real thing” and e-cigs are just a childish imitation which could never replace their analogue habit.
One of the most commonly heard criticisms of e-cigs is that they just allow nicotine addiction to continue in some other form. Yes, some vapers do continue to consume nicotine, and nicotine is a highly addictive drug. There is no denying that; it’s why people smoke cigarettes in the first place!
Group buys essentially bypass the vendor, or middle man, allowing the consumer to purchase directly from the manufacturer. Massdrop and Congrevape are seeking to standardize vaping group buys to what can be expected with more traditional products.
One of the key reasons why people get into vaping is cost saving. Of course, your primary reason should always...
Most of us are now well-versed with the 2009 FDA study that found a small amount (1%) of diethylene glycol, a toxic ingredient in anti-freeze, in 1 out of 18 cartridges from just two brands of electronic cigarettes. Not one study since then has found the chemical in any cartridges or liquids, suggesting that the device in question may have been contaminated.
Flavored electronic cigarettes appeal to and are targeted toward adults. Just because we age does not mean we lose interest in the delectables of life. Flavored e-cigs undoubtedly taste better than tar-filled tobacco smoke and are a sincere attempt to keep health conscious smokers from falling off the vapor wagon.
It is a brand new year and with 2012 in the rearview mirror, there is no doubt that 2013 is going to be an interesting year for the electronic cigarette industry. While there is no guaranteeing that any of these predictions will come true, we do believe that we will see a number of changes in the upcoming year.
Do you think e-cigs pose a risk to bystanders? Studies have shown that the vapor of e-cigarettes is less harmful than the air you inhale on a regular basis.
In the event that a bystander would pass through the vapor, since it doesn't contain the irritating toxins of tobacco smoke, it would likely be barely detectable beyond the faint scent of the flavor and only for a fleeting moment.
Manufacturers are continuously working to improve their offerings, but in which direction might things have gone by the turn of the next decade? Pinning down future events is not an exact science, but some improvements to the technology are to be expected because of the huge potential they hold.
Anxiety disorders affect 18 percent of Americans every year, with one in five of those cases being considered severe. Studies have shown that smoking cigarettes can contribute to anxiety and even lead to future disorders in adolescent smokers. Fortunately, new research suggests quitting smoking along with adequate exercise can calm many of symptoms sufferers deal with on a daily basis.
Need to write an innuendo-laden, scientific-sounding piece of scaremongering bullshit good enough to make an ex-smoking vaper decide to toss away the safer alternative and pick up a pack of comfortingly-deadly traditional cigarettes? Never fear: we have you covered.
International Vapor Group (IVG), manufacturer of South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke, is using this as an opportunity to introduce participants to e-cigarettes. This year’s No Smoking Day is all about showcasing the benefits smokers attain from quitting their expensive and unhealthy habit. For those not willing to completely abstain from nicotine, e-cigarettes are a still highly beneficial option. IVG has made it clear that smokers switching to their e-cigarette brands will still save a nice chunk of change as well as reap the health benefits associated from quitting smoking.
