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. As a result, electronic cigarettes do not need filters. Filters try and capture the toxic chemical residue so that it is not harmful.
Have you ever noticed a brown substance on a cigarette filter? That is tar. It impacts smokers in a number of negative ways. For example, it can turn their teeth yellow and stain the skin on their fingers.
Nicotine also plays a role in the staining process. Nicotine can affect both the teeth and the nails, turning them an unsightly shade of yellow. Only smokers of cigarettes need to worry about this side effect, however. The use of e-cigs does not lead to staining or discolouration.

It was only a matter of time before the ever growing trend of electronic cigarettes hitting Hollywood. We all now can honestly say for the first time I believe that we—the normal citizens—may have started a trend before celebrities? We all have been puffing on a e cig for quite some time now, but the growing appearances and sightings of famous people is telling.
They want in.
Here are some of the biggest celebrities who love E-Cigarettes.
Leonardo was recently caught on film at the Screen Actors Guild Award vaping. Which isn’t anything new consider the amount of times he has been on the losing end of that illustrious best actor Oscar, but will it be his year?
We have a feeling this year though Leo, and we suggest you puff that e-cig all the way up to the stage!
The mega-superstar Tom Hardy has joined in on the craze. The man begged for his own, much like Cowell did and that is exactly what Mad Max got!
Pop mega-icon-star Katy Perry has been a favorite for the tabloids and breaking celebrity news stories. None really have ever amounted to anything—why?
Because Katy Perry is actually good wholesome individual and she just so happens to enjoy a puff on the e-cigarette. With many paparazzi thinking they got another story t

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. But we are going to take five of these ridiculous stories that you may have heard—and were going to debunk them.
1. E-Liquid Contains Antifreeze
Yes, we all have heard this one. “Doesn’t that have antifreeze in it though?” Your mate may have asked. No, it does not contain anti-freeze in it. If it did countless e-cigarettes smokers would be dying painfully horrific deaths all over the world.
But we are not.
Where this myth comes from is an actual fact though. One of the main ingredients of e-liquid is propylene glycol.
This is a clear, odor-less, and non-corrosive chemical that is used as a base to flavors and nicotine. It is also used in anti-freeze, again as a base but the difference is when its in antifreeze its jam paced with chemicals that prevent ice from forming in your car engine, and melt your insides if you consume it. PG in e-liquid is just PG with nicotine and flavors infused.

Your off to see a new and exciting place or maybe your heading back to your favorite spot or to visit family. Well you have taken up electronic cigarette smoking, and you obviously don’t want to go anywhere without your personal e-cig.
But how does that go you might ask?
Do they take away your electronic cigarette when you go through security?
Can you puff on it in the air plane?
Well we decided to find the answers for you, and put together a few things you should know before you set off into the air with your e-cigarette.
Going Through Security
Getting through UK airport security should be no problem with an e-cig. We suggest that you twist off your tank from your battery—just in case. Put the battery with your other electronics, and you won’t have to worry about the tank—just put it in your bag.
Taking Your E-Liquid
If you have a bunch of e-liquid to bring with you remember that you can’t bring a more than 100 ml of liquid with your hand carry on and it won’t be an issue.
The majority of the airports we have here in the UK have banned e-cigs and have treated them just like regular cigarettes. So you will be hard pressed to find a place to puff while your in flights, or even walking through the terminal. “Hearthrow Airport” is the only airport that we know of that has integrated its own vaping lounge and bar—lets hope other start to follow suite.
Checked Bag—Think Again!
The problem seems to be an easy fix doesn’t it? All these complications could simply be solved by just putting your e-cig and all of its parts in your checked bag as opposed to your carry-on right?
For some weird re
