The popularity of the electronic cigarettes is taking over the industry as the #1 way to quit smoking. Say goodbye to nicotine gum, patches, and forget trying to take a pill to quit smoking. Electronic Cigarettes are now the most popular way to stop smoking with millions of smokers making the switch every day. But this should really come as no surprise to anyone who has experienced the pure effectiveness that electronic cigarettes produce. It has been estimated that over 1 million smokers in England tried an electronic cigarette to quit last year, according to studies done at University College London. Through their collegiate studies they were able to estimate that about 2.6 million of England’s 8 million smokers attempted to quit last year. About 2/5 of those 2.6 million used an electronic cigarette while 26% used another nicotine replacement product instead. The head professor of Health Psychology at UCL, Robert West; reported “E-Cigarettes have overtaken more traditional methods as the most widely used support for [ Continue Reading… ]
According to estimates, about 900,000 people used e-cigarettes to help them try and kick the habit in 2014. There is a new study that has found that 891,000 smokers used an e-cigarette in a bid to quit. They preferred this option opposed to the use of behavioral support or prescription medicine to help them quit. According to researchers at the University College London, 37.3% of adult smokers in England tried to quit the habit in 2014. 28.2% of these smokers used an electronic cigarette to help them quit them quit the habit. Some studies carried out before suggest that using e-cigarettes can increase the success rate by up to 50% compared with using either one or zero support of the traditional nicotine products like skin patches bought from a shop or gum. The researchers found out that using the e-cigarettes increased the success rates from about 5% to about 7.5%. These studies have shown that about 22,000 smokers quit the habit as a result of e-cigarettes. The [ Continue Reading… ]
Making the move from cigarettes to electronic cigarettes is a big deal. It means giving up tobacco completely, which is a lifestyle change that many people want to embrace. However, if you go this route, what benefits can you expect? E-cigs Don’t Smell Badly Because e-cigarettes do not burn, there is no tobacco smoke associated with their use. As a result, using e-cigs is a fairly odourless experience. This is great news for smokers that routinely worry about cigarette smoke lingering in their homes, on their clothes and even on their skin. In addition, cigarette smoke leads to bad breath as well, a problem that electronic cigarette users do not need to worry about. E-cigs are different. The vapour simply dissipates, which means that there is very little opportunity for any of it to attach to your person. In addition, the vapor itself typically smells good, often like spearmint or fruit. Stains and Tar: A Thing of the Past There is no tar in e-cigs. [ Continue Reading… ]

The newest and only technology in the tobacco industry is growing like crazy. People everywhere are making the switch from old chemically potent cigarettes to e-cigs vapor. Helping so many of us switch and help us get off those old smoke sticks has really rubbed big tobacco companies the wrong way. Their stranglehold on their industry has been un-phased for the years and years that they have been around. But e-cigs have become something special, and have already become a serious threat to take over the market, and produce healthier customers. Sure e-cigarettes are not all good—they things that are still bad for you in them, but when you compared the two the decision is clear. E-cigarettes are the healthier option. But with that has come stories far and wide aimed to make them look as criminal and bad as traditional smoking.

Isn’t it infuriating that the best things in life always seem to be bad for you? Doughnuts make you fat, alcohol causes you to act like a loon and to crash your car. Smoking makes your teeth fall out, ruins your skin and then it kills you. But wait! Vaping is the exception right? It is enjoyable and can help you to lead a healthier life. So why are new regulations coming into force 20 May 2016 and what do they mean for you? How Will the New Legislation Affect You? The 2001 EU Tobacco Products Directive will be updated this year to classify electronic cigarettes as tobacco related products, even though they aren’t! As a result electronic cigarettes and e-liquids will be subject to a raft of new regulations. Naturally we are on top of this issue here at Simply eLiquids and we will be making the changes necessary to ensure that your vaping experience is disrupted as little as possible.

[feather_share size=”40″ show=”facebook, twitter, google_plus, reddit” hide=”pinterest, linkedin, tumblr, mail”] Game Over Smoking!

Image: www.fda.gov Popular E Cigarettes To be Regulated By FDA As e cigarettes become more and more popular, naturally more attention is being paid to their safety and any potential risks they may have. Although many studies have been completed which show them to be safe to use, there may be room for some regulated warnings to come with them to ensure people use them safely. In recent news it has been publicised that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are considering placing warning labels on eliquid containing liquid nicotine. They are also considering placing a requirement on the packaging of eliquid to ensure that it is child-resistant.
Helen Flanagan Vows To Stay Of Cigarettes After smoking for years, former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan has now vowed to stay off cigs for good after having her beautiful baby daughter recently. According to The Mirror, Helen decided to kick the habit as soon as she found out she was pregnant with baby Matilda. The gorgeous 24 year old not only decided to quit for the sake of her new baby, but because she plans to expand her brood with partner Scott in the near future.
Recently, a news story was published suggesting that e cigarettes where a gateway to smoking for adults and more worryingly, under 18’s. However, new evidence has been released that dismisses the gateway theory, further emphasising what many from the eliquid community have already said – vaping does not necessarily lead to smoking. The research, provided by Cancer Research in a recent news story shows that smoking e cigarettes does not guarantee a user will begin smoking normal cigarettes regularly. Professor Linda Bauld of Stirling University Stated:
Danger To Pets Spike With Increase In Electronic Cigarette Popularity E Cigarettes are becoming more and more popular, which means the potential danger for pets will naturally rise as more people have products containing liquid nicotine in their homes. News reports show that in cases involving animals being exposed to nicotine have risen from over 200 animals in 2011, to over 300 animals in 2013. So although vaping is considered to be safe for you, the associated paraphernalia may pose a significant risk to your pets as nicotine is an incredible dangerous poison.
Naval Medical Officers Declare Vaping Is Not A Risk Recently a fugitive whistleblower claimed unauthorised vaping was a safety risk on board Royal Navy nuclear submarines, leading the naval medical officers having to perform a full health and safety investigation to determine whether or not this is the case. This has led to some unexpected positive press for the e cigarette community, as the naval medical officers have now declared vaping is not a risk and sailors are free to vape on board.
Another Blow For Vapers In another blow to the e cigarette community, a recent story by the London Evening Standard details Southern Rail’s plan to ban e cigarettes from the last week in July. Many different companies and retailers have chosen to ban the use of e cigarettes, however, this is the first time a major company used by so many people has publically stated it intends to ban the use of these devices.
Smoking is now recognised and accepted as being incredibly unhealthy. There was once a time when smoking was glamorized in adverts, and you were able to smoke inside public places, and even on planes. However, a lot is now known about how dangerous this habit is, so it’s no surprise one of the worlds biggest killers is now banned in so many places, in so many different countries. The UK has some of the strictest laws on smoking in the world, but how do other countries compare?
Scotland has recently put forward an e cigarettes bill which will mean the sale of e cigarettes and their associated products will be banned for those under the age of 18. Despite various research studies and statistics showing that e cigarettes are safe to use and are not a gateway to smoking normal cigarettes, anti-tobacco campaigners have still welcomed the bill. Ash (Action on Smoking and Health) Scotland stated that they believe “electronic cigarettes are less damaging to health than traditional cigarettes” (http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/e-cigarette-bill-welcomed-by-campaigners-1-3793929)
E cigarettes are getting extremely popular, and according to a survey carried out by ASH (Action Against Smoking) they helped half a million people in the UK quit smoking last year (BBC News). In the article by BBC News, it stated that the ASH research had shown that in the UK “there are now 2.6 million UK vapers, up from 2.1 million in 2014.”.
Are you finding you’re vaping and putting out less steam than a cold cup of tea? There are lots of reasons this can happen, ranging from the vaping techniques you use to issues with the E cigarette itself. If you are experiencing this problem, the first thing you need to do is figure out what’s actually going wrong. You can’t fix an issue if you don’t know what’s causing the issue right?
These days, it seems like everyone is vaping. You only have to take a short trip to the shop to see someone lovingly holding an e cigarette to their mouth. However, for everyone else, vaping is still a little bit weird. When you don’t vape you see all these people walking around holding these Alice In Wonderland style pipes and wonder what on earth they are doing. Plus, you have to remember many people have heard uneducated information about vaping, which makes them wary and suspicious. Because of this reason, despite the fact e cigarettes are completely legal, many pubs, bars, eateries and public transport companies have banned the use of e cigarettes. This means us innocent, vaping folk are still put in the same box as people who smoke normal cigarettes which is sad, but very true at the moment. With this in mind, there’s cause for a little creativity when it comes to vaping in public places.
Image: http://thewaltdisneycompany.com/ Disney is popular with children and adults alike, but the very basis of their entire corporation is bringing imagination, inspiration and entertainment to children’s lives. Because of this, Disney have now taken the decision to ban on screen smoking in every single one of their films, including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm. The only exception is when historical figures appear smoking because they may have smoked at that time in history, nonetheless even then the act of smoking in that instance is never glamorised.
Earth Day We all ponder around this little blue marble getting on with our busy daily lives without really giving much thought to the planet in which we reside. For this reason Gaylord Nelson, a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, decided to create a national day which would help to raise awareness of the environment and the effects of pollution. The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, and has grown from strength to strength every year gaining a worldwide following with 192 countries at present celebrating it annually.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the first few weeks of quitting tobacco are the hardest. It’s a habit, and for many it’s a habit they’ve been maintaining for years, so to suddenly stop completely is a very big ask. “People will suffer from nicotine withdrawal symptoms as well as the psychological challenges of ending something that may have been a big part of their daily life”, says Brian Jones, a councillor at Quit, a national charity that helps people kick their tobacco habit for good.
There’s always someone who is ‘impossible’ to buy for. Maybe it’s your dad, who doesn’t seem to be able to get excited about anything, or your difficult-to-please partner perhaps? Whoever it is, if they vape you’re onto a winner. Even if they’re currently a tobacco-smoker, their birthday could be the perfect time to get them onto a healthier alternative!
You might be surprised to hear that until earlier last month, most councils in Britain would prevent those who smoked e-cigarettes from adopting children under five years old. . E-cigarette users have been considered in the same category as smokers of conventional tobacco cigarettes, making their homes ‘a risk’ for young children.
Some of us try new e-liquid flavours every time we order, or even every time we vape! And some of us like to find something we like and stick to it. Whatever your approach, have you ever wondered what your favourite flavour says about you?
Once you’ve bought your e-cigarette, equipment and chosen your flavours, you might think that that’s all there is to it, right? Well, not necessarily. There are various methods by which you can significantly improve your vaping experience completely safely.
So it’s been a little while since you smoked any tobacco, and you’re feeling more and more comfortable. No matter how long it’s been since you quit, it’s understandable to start wondering how long it will take for your body to begin to heal itself, or if you’ve done any permanent damage.
E-liquids are still fairly new to the world, so not everyone knows how to use them to their full potential. ‘Steeping’ is to “blend, age and mature an e-liquid, to the point where the best flavour can be obtained”, so much like ageing a wine or a whiskey, it’s about getting the best out of something with time.
