Top 10 Reasons Your Life Will be Better for Switching to E-Cigarettes

Still deliberating on getting that e-cigarette starter kit? Still wondering if they’re worth the hype? Still not sure you’re ready to drop the cigarettes for good in favor of the more modern way to smoke? Here are the top 10 reasons you need to give e-cigs a try!

  1. Vapor is Cleaner. Cigarettes have the nasty tendency to stain anything they come into contact with, and this can mean your fingers, teeth, lips, and gums. Cigarette butts also create a trash issue, and as you smoke you will have to deal with ash. With e-cigs, you smoke them, and never have to worry about smoke, ash, or butts!
  2. Electronic cigarettes cost less. A lot less. If you were to compare the equivalent of cartridges to traditional packs of cigarettes, it would come out to less than $3 per pack, versus a minimum of $7-$10 per pack of cigarettes. The proof is in the numbers, and e-cigs are much more economical.
  3. They are way more convenient. So convenient in fact, we could do a whole post on that subject alone… There is no second hand smoke when you vape, and “second hand vapor” is not a threat to anyone.
  4. You have more options of flavor. Our e-cigs come in five different flavors, so you aren’t limited to just the boring basics of menthol and tobacco.
  5. You have the option to sign up for the Cartridge Replenishment Program, which saves you 20% on your cartridge refills, gets your e-cigs to you when you want them, and you are rewarded with the bonus of a lifetime warranty by being a member. Oh, and you set the number of cartridges you want and the recurrence of your choice. Did we mention it’s free?
  6. You may feel a lot better breathing in clean water vapor instead of all those chemicals.
  7. E-cigarettes don’t leave behind tar, or anything carcinogenic. It’s always nice knowing that when you smoke and get your nicotine you aren’t filling your lungs with tar, isn’t it?
  8. You can use them nearly anywhere. Totally different than tobacco, e-cigs are the best way to beat the smoking ban!
  9. No smoke means no second hand smoke. Vapor dissipates to nothing, and most public places have no problem with vapers.
  10. 10. You will have so much more control of your nicotine usage instead of being controlled by your habit. It’s all up to you, and not up to the length of your cigarette when you smoke e-cigarettes!

Looking for Love? Try Vapor Cigs

For smokers, e-cigarette starter kits can be the trick to a whole new place in the dating scene. Despite all the obvious reasons e-cigs would have you looking more attractive to potential partners, such as being better for your appearance, keeping your breath clean, and won’t have you constantly smelling awful, there are a number of reasons when it comes to relationships it is much better to be a nonsmoker.

More often than not, nonsmokers just aren’t that into people who smoke. Many nonsmokers would never give a smoker a second thought in attractiveness! There are those who are simply appalled by smoke, understand the many unhealthy side effects and refuse to allow it into their lives. Some nonsmokers are former smokers, and when it comes to dating choose not to be with smokers out of fear that they will feel influenced to go back to cigarettes. Smokers and nonsmokers in relationships together can be trouble because of the two different lifestyles. If one person smokes, and the other disagrees with the habit, it can lead to disputes and lying; both things that can weigh on relationships badly, especially those just beginning.

In many relationships that progress beyond basic dating, once finances get intertwined, the expenses involved with cigarettes can become the source of much disagreeing. Cigarettes are expensive, and nonsmokers are likely to view them as an unnecessary cost.

Smoke and romance just don’t work well together, even if both people involved are smokers. Smoking is inherently unhealthy, and leads to many consequences that can really degrade your health. If you are a smoker, and your partner is a smoker, why not make the switch to vapor cigs together? It can deepen your bond, and give you both a more enjoyable lifestyle to be enjoyed together. Get on the same page, or set yourself up for happier dating with electronic cigarettes!

 

E-Cigarettes VS Tobacco Cigarettes

E-cigarettes are not cessation devices, but that does not stop smokers from using them in such a way, or switching to them outright entirely. If a smoker were to be torn between the two, knowing they could have the same end result, the same pleasurable feeling while smoking, and afterwards have none of the negative effects, or longterm ills, what do you think they would choose? As e-cigs become more popular, and their presence is solidified as a serious option, smokers are choosing vapor over smoke in really high numbers. Such high numbers in fact that cigarette companies are bracing. Never before have they been faced with such dramatic anti-smoking campaigns in addition to having competition from alternatives that smokers actually embraced. They are holding on for dear life!

So with the recent bills being proposed across the country, attempting to have electronic cigarettes taxed in the same way that traditional cigarettes are, e-cig users are pretty upset. These bills run under the premise of regulating the industry, ensuring that minors are not able to purchase any nicotine products, but that is the least of the concerns to users of vapor cigarettes. It is generally difficult for those under 18 to purchase e-cigarettes, and they are certainly not marketed towards that age group. Advocates for e-cigs feel that their rights are being imposed upon, and that these products are not tobacco, they should not be considered the same. Traditional cigarettes are greatly dangerous, and e-cigarettes, despite not having FDA approval, are much safer. How electronic cigarettes work is with liquid nicotine, produce a clean vapor, and cause no combustion. They produce no smoke, and leave no tar behind. In those instances alone they are automatically healthier than traditional cigarettes.

Bills like these aim to have retailers of electronic cigarettes licensed as  Grouping e-cigarettes in the same category as cigarettes, and forcing vapor shops to purchase exclusively from tobacco companies selling e-cigarettes is simply wrong and just another way to give the business back to the failings of the tobacco industry. It also takes control away from users as well as shop owners, who have to rely on which brands they are permitted to carry. The tobacco industry has lost millions of dependent people, and therefore millions (if not billions) of dollars in sales, both to death as well as e-cigarettes; they are obviously willing to do what it takes to stay in the market. Several large e-cigarette companies have been bought out by large tobacco magnates, but that should not be a factor interfering with e-smokers’ options and rights to choose the brand of their choice.

Enjoying St. Patrick’s Day with Electronic Cigarettes

St. Patrick’s Day always seems to bring out the Irish in us all! There are always great parties for it, and wearing green to get into the festivities  makes it all the more merrier! Like any celebration, it’s always better when you are an e-smoker. Heck, you can even be vaping with menthol e-cig cartridges for an authentic, “green” feel! Here are all the ways e-cigs can make the party go even better, however you celebrate St. Patty’s!

-St. Patrick’s Day Parades: large groups of people, hanging out together in public, being wary of people of all ages, including children an elderly, why bring cigarettes into the mix? You won’t have to worry about burning anyone with a lit cigarette, or have to be conscious of smoke bothering those around you when you’re using e-cigarettes. The vapor has no smell to it whatsoever, and there is nothing harmful at all in it. Enjoy your parade in peace!

-Bar Parties: Everyone loves to hit their local Irish pub, or bar throwing a St. Patty’s Day fiasco, and electronic cigarettes will lessen your limitations. Socializing in general is way better with e-cigs, and you never have to deal with getting out of the building to enjoy your cigarette. What smoker does not love having a cig while they throw back a few cold ones? During a party, when your adrenaline is in full throttle, and you are enjoying the moment, having your nicotine (electronic cigarette) with you, wherever you are with total convenience is the way to go!

-House Parties: If you are at a house party, same goes as if you were at a public party in a bar. The only difference is, if you are at a friend or family member’s home, the last thing you want to do is offend others around you, or be a nuisance littering your cigarette butts in their yard, or roosting out front with a cigarette all night.

Whatever you got going on, when it comes to getting down and having fun, it’s done better with e-cigarettes instead of traditionals. St Patrick’s Day is no different, so we hope your’s is happy, and full of delicious vapor!

Why Companies Are Less Likely to Hire Smokers

Smokers can be a costly population, and hiring companies have definitely taken notice. If you are looking for a new job, it may really be in your best interest to drop the cigarettes for good! Electronic cigarettes are here to stay, and here to help!

There is a long list of reasons why companies are avoiding cigarette smokers, and with more and more people quitting, if they’d prefer to hire nonsmokers the odds are in their favor. Smokers are high maintenance, and they often need more breaks, which comes out to more wasted time. They tend to miss more work due to illness, because smoking can exacerbate the symptoms of ordinary colds and flus, as well as further agitate things like allergies and asthma. Getting sick more often than nonsmokers can also mean they cost more to insure with health insurance and life insurance, and most companies are looking to cut costs, not increase them unnecessarily.

They can be a social nuisance to nonsmokers; just another area where nonsmokers get the upper hand. Smokers have a habit of smelling bad, even if they frequently use perfume, and those who don’t smoke usually want nothing to do with it. Most companies have strict hygiene policies, so it’s about courtesy.

Cigarette smoking can give a company a bad reputation. Most people and companies are going the more health-conscious route these days, and smokers do not add to that image; they do the opposite. You can make your company look bad by being an ambassador for smoking, and it may not be a risk they want to take. It is not unusual for companies to have guidelines for where and when smokers can smoke cigarettes, but many want to avoid it all together.

Don’t fret though, because e-cigs can really make a big difference with this transition, and allow you to still have some satisfaction and comfort while you switch. If you have your eyes set on a company who has a zero tolerance level for employees even having nicotine in their systems, you may want to give 0 nicotine cartridges a try! There is better time than the present to improve your life, get an e-cigarette starter kit today!

Looking to Be a Little Greener? Choose E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes are the smarter choice when smoking, and they are the greener choice. Everyone is getting a little more conscious of their impact on the environment these days, and even when choosing your cigarettes the choice comes in to play. Why are e-cigs the healthier choice? Well, here is a list of reasons they are better on the environment than going for their tobacco counterparts!

-They are reusable. Cigarettes get used and tossed, used and tossed, used and tossed. It’s an endless cycle, and it is not good for the earth.

_E-cigs produce minimal waste, and they have a much longer life than cigarettes. For instance, a single e-cig cartridge goes for about the length of 2 packs of cigarettes.

-They do not encourage littering. Are you aware of just how much pollution cigarettes cause? They are one of the planet’s leading littler problems!

-They do not pollute the air. This means you aren’t adding to the smog, and you are not polluting the air for the people around you. Smoke is not good for the body, and tobacco smoke is especially awful to breath in. Tar is sticky, and it sticks around for a long, long time. It’s also carcinogenic, and full of toxins that will rest in your body, in your lungs, wherever it can settle.

-They are made of healthier, more natural ingredients. Better for your body, and better for the planet.

-Cigarette butts are not just a pollution problem in cities and the natural environment, they are a major threat to native animals, birds, and fish especially.

-Electronic cigarettes are much more sustainable, and they have no involvement in the mess that is tobacco farming.

Choosing Your Nicotine Strength

How do you choose a nicotine strength when smoking electric cigarettes? It may seem simple, and it generally is, but here is some info in case you are not sure. It’s always better to know before you buy, and it can help make your experience even better.

Optima Cigs come in four different strengths of nicotine in our cartridges: 18 mg, which is full strength, 12 mg which is equal to light, 6 mg comes out to ultra light, and 0 mg are nicotine free, and great for those who do not want nicotine and simply want to enjoy the experience of vaping.

Many people start vaping and expect to jump right into 0 mg carts, after coming from cigarettes. This works for some, but many people still want and need the nicotine that is comparable to their former cigarettes. If you smoked full strength cigaretts, 18 mg should be right for you. If lights were your thing, obviously lights at 12 mg would probably work out well for you. Ultra light smokers will be good with 6 mg cartridges, and if you wean down to 0, or feel like that’s all you want and need, go for nicotine free.

If you are interested in gradually lessening your nicotine intake, take it slowly. If you choose to be more aggressive about it, get yourself cartridges in all strengths and experiment with how you feel and how the different levels work for you. Because everyone really does have different preferences and comfort levels, find out what works for you. Some people start vaping with 18 mg e-cig cartridges, and never feel the need to drop it down. Some people are able to start out with 0 mgs, enjoy the vapor, flavor and sensation of vaping and be fine with never having nicotine. It all depends on you!

The gift of modern, smoke-free smoking is unique and quite possibly, life altering. If you smoke, wouldn’t you be tickled to get a package of e-cigarette on V-Day?

For any smoker in your life, not just your significant other, e-cigarettes make a great present. A parent, a relative, sibling, anyone you know who smokes would benefit from using e-cigs. And Valentine’s Day is basically a universal day of love, not restricted just to lovers!

If you are trying to woo a certain love interest and you know they smoke, giving a starter kit could be a real deal maker. A practical object with a whole lot of thought behind it can do a lot to show your feelings.

If you and your partner smoke, why not get two starter kits and make this Valentine’s Day the most romantic ever? Making the decision to live better and healthier together is like making a promise to each other that you want the best for each other, and you want to make sure that person is taken care of in the long run.

Think alternative cigarettes can’t possibly be romantic? Think again! There’s nothing sexier than showing your love. This Valentine’s Day, let e-cigs enhance your day of love! E-cigs always make any good time even better, and they make the perfect gift!

E-Cig Cartridges VS Cigarettes

Electric cigarette cartridges come out on top every time, and in every way you can compare them to tobacco cigarettes. Why pay more for something that doesn’t last nearly as long, costs much more, and can potentially leave you with a chronic disease, lead to a fatal one, and shorten your lifespan? It’s amazing what a little cartridge can do!

1 e-cigarette cartridge comes out to 30 cigarettes, with average use. For some customers, that number can be more or less depending on their particular style of vaping. But either way, cartridges go much farther, reducing the carbon footprint, saving time, and saving you money.

Options: you have way more with Optima Cigs than possible with tobacco. You get to choose your flavor and nicotine strength, which is not the way cigarettes are sold. The majority of brands offer very limited choices when it comes to flavors and nicotine strengths, and even still, you are not getting pure nicotine. The tobacco in cigarettes obviously contains nicotine, but it also comes with thousands of other unwanted, unnecessary chemicals. Formaldehyde, arsenic, and cyanide a just a few of the common toxins found in cigarettes, among many others!

The savings are enormously evident, and worthy of even further discussion! Each cartridge individually comes out to less than a pack of cigarettes, and purchasing in bulk drops the prices even further. Sign up for the Cartridge Replenishment Program and your savings can include an additional 20%. For example, a 10-pack of cartridges costs $39.99, and is equal to 15 packs of cigarettes, and that comes out to spending $2.66 per pack. Far cheaper than you will spend for cigarettes anywhere!

So as you can see, e-cigs are the sensible choice in this competition! Traditional cigarettes can’t hang at all, and cartridges win in every category. More flavors, more options, more savings, and more convenience!

Addressing E-Cigarette Rumors

E-cigarettes have lots of things being said about them. Rumors get spoken about everything and everyone, and it’s always a sign of popularity. There are lots of myths floating around about electric cigarettes, and new users and those who are skeptical often don’t know what to believe!

So how do you know when something is true or not? Well, you have yo be able to look deeper into the situation. What isn’t being said? Was the information spoken by a truthful resource? Does it seem more than a little “off?” One way to decipher the truth from the fiction is to do some research. While the internet is filled with more than a few odd stories, you can also find a great deal of useful info too. So hopefully, by ending up on this page, this info will do you some good to be able to have the truth behind some of the most common e-cigarette myths.

1- Electronic cigarettes are bad for you.

Truth- E-cigs are not bad at all for you. While there hasn’t been the level of testing done to appease the FDA, there has been nothing that has come out to prove this. With millions of users, and nothing but positive and great experiences, it goes without saying that they are better than tobacco cigarettes. Definitely not bad for you.

2- E-Cigs are just as dangerous as traditional cigs.

Truth- No way! They are made without tobacco or any of the many chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. They give off no smoke, so you won’t be breathing that in, and those around you will not be affected by second hand smoke. No tar is left behind, and you breath in only water vapor and nicotine. Neither of which are dangerous.

3- E-cigarettes are known to explode when they are used.

Truth- Only when things are used incorrectly. Don’t mix different products from different companies and use in ways they do not suggest in the manuals. ALWAYS follow the instructions in the manuals you get from each company. Keep your e-cigarette accessories, cartridges, and related products separate brand by brand if you use more than one. Don’t mix liquids, other batteries, and parts where not recommended. It could get dangerous.

4- E-cigs are illegal in many places in the US.

Truth- No, they aren’t. As much as the FDA has tried to restrict and control their distribution, e-cigs are entirely legal for people of the legal smoking age, which is 18 in most states, and 19 in others.

5- You can’t use e-cigs in public.

Truth- Most of the time you can. While cigarettes are banned in most public places, e0cigs are not the same and do not cause the same hazards and unwanted effects.

6- E-cigarettes don’t have nicotine in them.

7- Truth- There are e-cigs available with and without nicotine. Your choice.

7- Most brands of e-cigarettes are not good.

Truth- Can’t speak for anyone else, but Optima Cigs are excellent!

8- All e-cigs taste bad.

Truth- Not all, and definitely not our’s.

9- Electronic cigs are made to be sold to teenagers and children.

Truth- Never. And totally illegal here in the States.

10- E-cigs contain anti-freeze.

Truth- Come on! Anti-freeze kills, and if any company wants to exist, prosper, sell and promote their product without a boat-load of lawsuits, they definitely will not be infusing their e-cigs with anti-freeze!
