Sorry to mention the ‘C’ word but now Halloween is over I feel it only right to point out that Christmas is upon us once again. It is the time of year that can be the most joyful and the most stressful for many people but at least, in the midst of all the gift buying decisions you have to make for your friends and family, there is one gift choice that should be easy if someone you love is a smoker.
We all know smoking is bad for you - the hideous liver pictures, the statistics, the dire warnings on the cigarette packets, to name but a few. Whether you pay attention to all this or not, doesn’t change the fact that Cigarette smoking is the greatest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK - fact. It is not the nicotine that is the problem (although this is highly addictive and regular smokers will suffer withdrawal symptoms of cravings, anxiety, headaches, irritability etc. if not relieved with another cigarette) it is the other 4,000 plus chemicals (like tar and carbon monoxide), and over 50 known causes of cancer (carcinogens) and other poisons that are burnt and breathed into your lungs when you smoke, that are the real killers.
Wow, what a downer for Christmas huh?
But there is good news. The benefits of stopping breathing in all those chemicals begin straightaway. You immediately start to reduce your risk of getting serious disease the second you stop, no matter what age you give up or how long you have been smoking.
It’s just that pesky nicotine problem you need to get past. Some people can give up easily. Willpower and determination are the most important aspects when giving up smoking. However, nicotine is a drug of addiction and many people find giving up a struggle. Which is why an e-cigarette starter kit is so amazing.
An E-Cig is for life, not just for Christmas
Firstly, I will point out that the E-Cig is not perfect and not all are created equal. They still burn chemicals – just a heck of a lot less than you find in traditional cigarettes and a lot less harmful to your system – up to 95% LESS harmful in fact. The key is to buy quality products from a reputable store.
E-cigarettes work so well for nicotine addicts because you can control how much nicotine is in each ‘hit’. They can mimic the traditional smoking experience as much or as little as you need them to and you can change it at any time, slowly weaning the smoker off from the addiction altogether without any of the nasty withdrawal effects.
So, why not buy your loved one an Ecig starter kit for Christmas and help save their health? Speak to The Vape Shop’s experienced and fully trained instore or online staff today and they will be happy to help you get exactly the right gift to put under the tree this Christmas.
