Everybody knows that smoking is bad for you. It causes cancer, it stinks, it poses as a fire risk, it puts people off their food… We know all of this already, don’t we?
In the United States alone, over 18% of all adults smoke. That’s a whopping 42.1 million people. Apparently, more men are doing it than women, and it accounts for one in five deaths every year. On top of this, a reported 16 million American people are suffering as a direct result of smoking-related illnesses right now.
Isn’t that enough to make you want to hunt for the best electronic cigarettes?
In case you needed a few more reasons, why not check out these six genius reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes:
Seriously you will not believe how much money you could save. Let’s say that you buy yourself an Eversmoke Ultimate Starter Kit which costs $149.99. Click here to buy one for yourself. It’s got everything you’ll need to start your e-cigarette adventure. We’re going to work this out over the course of a year, right… Are you ready for this?
Smoking “regular” cigarettes would cost you about $10 per day, right? OK, we’ll say $8 to be on the safe side. However, when you add on the cost of lighters, ashtrays, air fragrances for when your house smells like smoke, all the extra laundry stuff you’ll need because you need to wash your clothes more often, the smoking-related days off work you’ve had…. We’ll stick with $10 per day, shall we?
Over the course of one year, you’ll spend around $3650 on smoking. Probably more.
The Ultimate Start Kit by Eversmoke gives you 3 batteries, and 15 cartridges amongst the other stuff like various chargers, charging cases, carry cases, and suchlike. I’m focusing on the cartridges and batteries right now. This costs $149.99.
You will go through those three batteries around every 3-6 months, so we’ll say 4 just to be on the safe side. In one year, you will need to replace those 3 batteries three times. So that’s nine batteries over the course of one year, and if you buy them three at a time, you’ll pay $49.99.
You’ll get 15 cartridges which SHOULD last you 15 days but will probably last you for about 7. Let’s say that you choose to refill your own cartridges. Those 15 cartridges will last you for around 6-8 weeks. So let’s say two months. You’ll need to replace them six times in one year, so you’ll need 6 x 15-pack of cartridges = $239.94.
You’ll be refilling your own cartridges so you’ll need e-liquid too. A 10ml bottle of e-liquid will set you back around $8-$10, and this will last you around a week if you are refilling cartridges. If you are using the e-liquid for tank-style e-cigarettes, you will find that you go through it a bit quicker.
Anyway, let’s say you pay $9 for a bottle of e-liquid and it lasts you a week, you will spend $468 a year.
Now, this is assuming that you don’t intend to quit entirely during that first year, which a lot of people find themselves trying to do. If that is the case, you’ll be using it less and less and in which case, you’ll save even more money because e-liquids will last you longer, as will the batteries and cartridges.
Smoking the Eversmoke e-cigarette and using the above as a rough estimation (and I have massively exaggerated things a bit here…) you will spend $907.92, adding all of the above stuff into account.
When you consider that you would have spent $3650 on smoking “regular” cigarettes, that’s a saving right there of $2,742.08. That works out to be about an extra $230 every month for a year! What could you be doing with money like that burning a hole in your pocket?
This is before (as I’ve suggested) you even begin to take into consideration things like laundry powder, fabric softener, air freshener, perfume, car smellies, etc. you’ll need to buy to mask and cover up the smoking stench. Just imagine the savings!
2 – You get to control the nicotine
If you want to wean yourself away from smoking gradually, you can do so with the help of the various strengths of nicotine available in the cartridges and e-liquids that you are buying. You can start with the high-level stuff and then move down to medium, low, and eventually, zero nicotine. This is the perfect way to quit smoking as you won’t associate the journey with those nasty nicotine withdrawals and cravings you would have had if you’d have gone cold turkey.
If you want to simpler living a healthier life without worrying about the health risks associated with smoking “regular” cigarettes, you could just start on the high strength stuff, drop down to medium after a little while, and then comfortably stay at that level until you either want to quit entirely, or you fancy a change in strength again.
That’s the thing about electronic cigarettes – you’re in complete control!
3 – You have so many flavor options!
Have you seen how many different e-liquids you can buy on the VaporFi website? There’s everything you could possibly imagine on there such as hazelnut, coffee, chocolate, strawberry cheesecake, various fruits, desserts, tobacco, and menthols flavors too. You could be smoking anything you like, and when you do this, you’ll find it easier to quit entirely because essentially, you are taking away the taste and smell of nicotine that is associated with the habit. When you wean yourself down the nicotine strength ladder and add a few interesting flavors into the mix at the same time, you have a winning combination that has shown how to beat the smoking habit!
Yes, that’s right – it’s time to play around with the biggest and best e-cigarettes and their flavors!
Smoking doesn’t look cool anymore but everyone is intrigued by these fabulous indoor smoking devices. Even the celebrities are having a go with people like Leonardo Di Caprio, Kate Moss, Katherine Heigl, Johnny Depp and more being thrown in the mix. Lindsay Lohan, Cameron Diaz… you name it – they’re all doing it! They’re all using electronic cigarettes.
If you want to part of the “in-crowd”, you’ll need to get yourself a funky new e-cigarette!
Ok, there’s no way to say this nicely to anyone but the stench of smoking “regular” cigarettes is pretty awful. There’s nothing nice about standing in line to get in a restaurant behind a guy that has chain-smoked himself to death outside for the last thirty minutes. It’s not a cool habit and to be honest, most people find the stench just off-putting. Imagine how many men may have walked away from you in a club, thinking they could buy you a drink and then realizing you smell like an old, stale ashtray. You don’t want to be THAT person, do you?
6 – You won’t need to stand in the pouring rain!
No, it’s not a start to another soppy love song, but it is true! When you smoke an electronic cigarette, you can smoke in places that regular smoking is prohibited. After all, you aren’t burning anything, there’s no smell, there’s no second-hand smoke for people to worry about. People may still get alarmed by the fact that it LOOKS like you are smoking in a public place, but nine times out of ten, when you explain the situation to them, they calm down and become more accepting. It’s as simple as that really.
Most e-cigarette companies pop a little credit-card-sized “membership card” into their starter kit boxes which says pretty much all you need to know “I am not smoking a real cigarette. This is an electronic cigarette….” Blah, blah, blah.
You can smoke in the comfort of your own living room in front of the fire on a cold, raining winter’s evening, rather than standing with your head out the bathroom window, praying no one wants to use the toilet because you can’t face standing outside getting wet and cold because your wife won’t let you smoke in the house. You can’t give her cancer with an electronic cigarette. It doesn’t smell either so technically, she has nothing to complain about! 😉
The fact of the matter is that there are a hundred and one reasons why making the switch from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes is a good idea, and if better health isn’t a good place to start, I don’t know what is. I do know one thing though – each and every one of the guys in my team has given up smoking to some electronic cigarettes and some of us have never been healthier!
