A Short Guide To E-Cigs

electronic-cigarette-starter-kitE cigarettes are trendy but they are a very easy way to cut down on your smoking habit as well. There are several good electronic cigarettes brands available on the market and you can choose almost any brand you want. However, here are a few tips that can really help you out.

Start with a starter kit

Almost all good electronic cigarette UK retailers stock beginner kits that contain 2 batteries, 2 atomizers, 1 charger and plug and 5 cartridges for personal use. A starter kit is perfect as it will teach you exactly how to use an electronic cigarette. The kit is also cheap and if you want, you can switch over to a different kit to change your taste.

Choose between 2-piece and 3-piece designs

Most retailers stock 3-piece designs as they are readily available and they can provide the smoking experience of as many as 100 to about 160 cigarettes. However, some users do like the 2-piece kits that work just as well. Two piece kits are also easier for newbies to use and replace in case of damage.


The advantage with e-cigs is that you will normal flavors of eliquid along with exotic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and banana. Of course, unflavored versions are also available but an e cig does away with the major complaint with cigarettes i.e., the odor and danger of secondhand smoke.

Reviews and opinions

Individual tastes and opinions do tend to vary but reading reviews will provide valuable information on different brands. Your taste may not match what is written by the reviewer but it does provide an idea of the brand, its taste, quality and the cost of the brand. We recommend you read as many reviews as possible and compare the ideas presented in them before you actually buy a product or brand.


Most kits are imported but a few are manufactured in the UK. Usually, imported brands may vary anywhere from £20 to about £1000 or more. However, newbie kits are cheaper and they average about £20 to about £50. Buy only starter kits and then move on to larger gourmet kits that cost more and provide a better smoking experience.

Battery and charging

Most models come with their own batteries for charging and you can attach them directly to wall sockets for charging. However, newer models now have USB charging sockets which means you can charge them through the computer and even through your car battery when you are driving.

This may seem like a long list of things to go through but it is necessary. However, this can take a lot of time and to make a long story short, we are there to do the legwork. We are a leading retailer of e cigs in the UK and all you have to do is get in touch with us. Our trained customer service department will find the right smoking units for your requirement and get you started on the best e cigarette experience possible.

Finding A Way To Quit Smoking

stop-smokingYou’ve probably promised yourself you’re going to quit many times now. How long have you been smoking? Do you know people who have died from it? Aren’t you tired of sneaking off behind buildings to light up? Aren’t you afraid to keep smoking? Honestly, isn’t it about time you found a way to quit?

You Know The Dangers

Everybody knows that smoking causes serious health complications and many deaths. For some reason, that’s not enough to motivate people to quit. It really doesn’t matter how addictive cigarettes are, they are simply not worth the risk. Have you ever seen someone dying from emphysema? Do you know that a single session of chemo can last more than seven hours? Even if you didn’t get cancer, smoking zaps a decade or more off your life expectancy. Don’t think “That just won’t happen to me.” You know better, and so does everyone who cares about you.

You’ve Got Help

There are so many things to help you with quitting, and at least one of them will work for you. Look into the gum, patch or electronic cigarettes. Ask your doctor about a prescription cessation method too, as these have been very effective for millions of people. You could try hypnosis–don’t automatically rule it out because you think it’s quirky either–the power of suggestion can be a great tool. Don’t forget about support groups either, ones you can attend in person around town or something online. People who have already quit can tell you what to expect and how to get through it. Lean on these aids: They could be your best or only real shot at quitting smoking for good.

You Have To Believe You Can Do It

Stop thinking that it’s going to be impossible to quit, because you’ll talk yourself right out of being able to do it. Instead, make up your mind that you have the power. All things considered, you’ve got enough at stake to light a fire underneath you and keep it going until you succeed. Believing that cigarettes are something you have to be a slave to and live and die for will be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

You’ve Got To Be Totally Committed

Most smokers go through phases with quitting. They get their hopes up, make a plan and are temporarily determined to finally give up the habit. Then a few bumps in the road happen, and they allow themselves to be discouraged. Don’t let a bad day, argument with your significant other or missing an important appointment drive you back to smoking. Be prepared, by having ways to vent stress. Keep the nicotine gum or an electronic cigarette with you in the beginning, to get you through the most difficult initial cravings. One way or another, you must be fully committed to the process of quitting. A half-hearted attempt will keep you in the cycle forever.

Make up your mind, then make a plan that suits you personally. Use the cessation aids, support groups and anything else you need to finally do it. You owe it to yourself and everyone who cares about you to find a way to quit smoking. Sooner rather than later, too.

Using The Electronic Cigarette As A Means To Stop Smoking

e-cigaretteThere are many forms of addiction in the 21st century alternate to drugs and alcohol – video games, chocolate, social networking. All of these have become socially acceptable despite their negative effects on an individual’s health and well-being. However, there is another addiction which has been evident for centuries but is still considered somewhat acceptable among the average person in the street – smoking.

The addiction to cigarettes has been noted as an addiction to the tobacco and nicotine being smoked. However, there is a great deal more to consider as it is not only the substances, but the activity itself as a means of coping with stress and anxiety. The behavior of smoking becomes a habit on which the smoker depends in order to cope with everyday problems. Due to this it is very difficult to stop; in fact, it is as difficult for a smoker to stop smoking nicotine cigarettes as for an alcoholic to stop abusing liquor.

Presently, there are numerous smoking cessation aids available on the market with the most well-known being the smoker’s patch. There is also nicotine chewing gum and a nicotine spray which provides small amounts of nicotine to the smoker. However, as was aforementioned, it is not only the substance but the behavior that the smoker is addicted to which is why many relapses can be seen when using patches, gums and sprays.

Today there is another aid known as the e cigarette. The electronic cigarette looks and feels exactly like a regular cigarette; however, it is battery operated and utilizes liquid nicotine instead of a combination of tobacco and nicotine. The liquid is heated in a chamber providing a vapor which is then ‘puffed’ by the smoker offering that ‘smoking sensation’ minus the toxins of a regular cigarette.

It may be questioned, how can an e-cigarette act as a smoking cessation aid? Well, the e-cigarette can’t stop a smoker from smoking; instead it acts as a nicotine replacement therapy which allows smoking without the health risks. Furthermore, the liquid nicotine is of a much lower level than that presented in a regular cigarette, and the smoker is able to reduce the amount of nicotine at a gradual pace moving away from the substance altogether.

Another benefit of the electronic cigarette is its cost-effectiveness. Irrespective of the frequency of your smoking habit, the cost of tobacco cigarettes is high and can cause a dent in your wallet; however, the e-cigarette is much cheaper saving you large amounts of money each month.

As was mentioned above, there are numerous health risks for people who smoke regular cigarettes, but what some smokers may not realize is that tobacco smoking can have negative influences on those around them. Chronic smokers have a greater chance of heart and lung conditions; but they also increase the chances of respiratory problems for those around them, especially children. Using electronic cigarettes reduces these health risks for both the smoker and the secondary smokers.
