As many of my regular readers know, I quit smoking in August with the help of electronic cigarettes. While I was able to quit smoking completely, I still get the urge – really, really badly – when I am drinking with my friends. In order to resist the temptation of grabbing a cigarette from a friend, which I know will lead to me picking the habit back up, I carry a disposable electronic cigarette with me in my purse at all times. It works for me!
How are electronic cigarettes different than real cigarettes?
Electronic Cigarettes are an alternative to tobacco. They deliver nicotine to the smoker via a water vapor. Tobacco cigarettes contain over 4,000 ingredients and E cigs contain only 5 ingredients. Electronic cigarettes don’t emit second-hand smoke or ashes and E cig smokers don’t have to worry about the smell of smoke on themselves, nor do they have to worry about stained finger nails or teeth!
E cigs are also a way for smokers to save money. In the US, the average price for a pack of cigarettes is $5.29. Based on the national average a pack-a-day smoker will spend just shy of $2,000 over the course of the year. By switching to an electronic cigarette like White Cloud Cigarettes, they can spend just under $600.
I recently received a started package of White Cloud Cigarettes, and I took the disposable cigarettes and Chris took the rechargeable ones with him to Trinidad and Barbados. Because the islands are very anti-smoking, he usually has to leave the hotel property to smoke when he is down there. With the electronic cigarettes, not only do I not have to worry about the health risks of him smoking quite so much, but he can “smoke” his E cig in his room if he wants!
Help the smoker in your life switch to electronic cigarettes. Their health and their wallet will thank you!
I received a starter kit from White Cloud Cigarettes, but all opinions are my own.
