E-Cigarette Company ?Applauds? Charlie Sheen Outsmarting Tough Canadian Smoking Laws

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 18, 2011

Charlie Sheen?s international tour titled ?My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show? made a stop in Toronto?s Massey Hall Thursday. Sheen ran into a problem when Massey Hall organizers threatened to shut down the show and have him face up to $ 100,000 in city fines. However, Sheen was able to avoid this potential fine and show cancellation by using an electronic cigarette like South Beach Smoke’s deluxe model. Inside sources said Charlie bragged about ?not needing an ashtray? or even ?cigarette? to smoke.

Toronto is known for having some of the strictest smoking laws in Canada which include no smoking in workplaces, restaurants, dinner theaters and bowling allies. They also do not allow smoking in bars, billiard halls, casinos and racetracks but allow for designated smoking areas to exist in these establishments.

South Beach Smoke, one of the top e-cigarette companies in the country, commented on Charlie Sheen?s act by stating, ?Canadian anti-smoking laws are known to be harsh, and we applaud Charlie Sheen for making the smart decision of not violating those laws. He?s among the many people who have found refuge in the liberties provided by smoking e-cigarettes?. Charlie Sheen joins the growing number of celebrities who use e-cigarettes, like South Beach Smoke, as a better alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes.

Since Charlie Sheen?s Two-and-a-Half Men season cancellation and subsequent media blitz, the CBS star has been seen smoking traditional cigarettes at an incredibly high frequency. His habitual smoking is synonymous with other antics which include catch phrases like ?Tigerblood?, ?Winning?, and ?Fastball?, much of which have been popularized through his Twitter Account which currently has 3.5 million followers.

Electronic Cigarettes – Vaping is the New Smoking

London, (PRWEB) April 25, 2011

Since the 1st July 2007 it has become illegal to smoke tobacco in all restaurants, pubs and clubs in the UK. Initially this seemed to have a huge impact on the nation?s overall health, with 400,000 people quitting smoking in the first year following the ban and many more in the years since.

It also had a huge impact on the nation?s public houses; with 175 million fewer pints sold in the first 9 months after the smoking ban took effect. Similar bans have produced similar results across large swathes of Europe.

Yet, despite the initial drop in smokers following the ban, figures since then have remained relatively stable with around 24% of the population continuing to smoke tobacco products.

Increasing pressure has been placed on Health Organisations and Governments to try and curb the number of smokers. Consequently, there have been a slew of campaigns aimed at raising awareness of the long term health hazards caused by smoking. However, these campaigns have not had anything like the desired impact on the numbers of smokers in the UK.

In the firm belief that the majority of smokers have been (and are) searching for a smoking alternative which can deliver them the same experience, but with no tar, or lit tobacco, and can still be used anywhere, some enterprising engineers came together to design and create Vapesticks.

A Vapestick is an electronic cigarette that delivers the same experience as smoking a normal cigarette but without the intake, or emission, of the harmful pollutants produced by tobacco smoke. Vapesticks produce no tar, no ash, no carbon monoxide and they are odourless. They work electronically, with a water-based vapour delivering the smoke sensation, and this has made them an instant hit with pubs and clubbers as they are also completely legal to use anywhere.

Further, newly released Vapestick models have the option to come with or without nicotine and different levels of nicotine Vapesticks have been developed so that users can find the closest alternative option to the tobacco cigarettes they have been used to, and decrease levels of nicotine over time, if they wish.

Smoking with a vapestick, or vaping as it has become commonly known, has finally given people the option to smoke anywhere again, without having to pollute themselves and those around them.

vapestick.co.uk is quickly becoming the market leader in online vapestick sales with its unique re-chargeable, and hence ecologically sound, range of electronic cigarettes. As many users want their e-cigarettes to closely resemble actual cigarettes vapestick.co.uk has developed a range which includes models that closely resemble normal cigarettes, as well as more stylish creations in polished chrome and black.

Evaluating Three Ways to Quit Smoking

New Delhi, India (PRWEB) September 02, 2011

This article will evaluate the 3 top ways to Overcome Cigarette Smoking Addiction i.e. Nicotine Patches, Nicotine Gum & SMOKEFREE Electronic Cigarettes which have just been recently made available in India.

Cigarettes can have a powerful hold on smokers in India today. The reason is the high concentration of nicotine, which has been found to produce an addictive reaction in human beings. When smokers inhale tobacco smoke, the chemicals are absorbed in the bloodstream triggering a strong reaction. But, strictly speaking nicotine itself isn?t addictive. It?s the reaction of the pleasurable feeling of the dopamine-releasing neurons in the brain that causes an addiction.

When a cigarette is lit and inhaled, the tobacco and other ingredients such as carbon monoxide and over 4,000 chemicals including arsenic are inhaled which create health risks such as lung cancer, amongst thousands of Indians.

It?s for that reason alone that many people try to quit smoking. In India, 35,000 smokers try to quit each year, but less than five percent stop smoking for at least a year. And a large percentage that try to quit, try going ?cold turkey?. But with the powerful effects of nicotine addiction, it can be very hard to succeed.

There are three proven ways to overcome a smoking addiction:

Putting A Patch On A Nicotine Addiction

Majority of the Indians who quit smoking chose the nicotine patch alternative. The transdermal patch allows nicotine to enter the bloodstream through the skin. Patches provide a continuous nicotine release at a slower, less intense burst than smoking does.

As with other nicotine-replacement treatments, the nicotine patch allows smokers to get the feel-good chemical reaction without the harmful side effects of smoking. The patch is meant to be used as a temporary smoking cessation tool. Patches come in different strengths so that users can slowly decrease their exposure to nicotine until they can live comfortably without it. Some people who use the patch experience side effects including skin reactions at the patch site.

Using Nicotine Gum As A Substitute

Many people in India choose nicotine gum as a way to get the pleasure-inducing dopamine release that nicotine provides. Nicotine gum can work for some people who are addicted to nicotine, but who don?t necessarily love the act of smoking.

In the film Meet The Parents, Ben Stiller?s character tried to avoid smoking while staying with his prospective in-laws by chewing nicotine gum excessively. Eventually he gave up and reverted back to smoking, causing a fire and mayhem ensuing. Chewing gum doesn?t simulate the experience that many smokers become accustomed to and enjoy: Taking a long draw from a cigarette, inhaling, and exhaling. That feeling can create such relaxation to a long-time smoker, that the experience is almost as habit-forming as the nicotine itself.

Nicotine gum may not be appropriate in some settings. Many companies in India ask employees to refrain from chewing gum for the sake of keeping a professional environment. Trying to fit a short 10 or 15-minute session of chewing nicotine gum may not provide the dose of nicotine that provides the same effect as smoking one cigarette.

SMOKEFREE Electronic Cigarettes Provide a Realistic Option to Reduce Nicotine Addiction

It can be very difficult for smokers to quit smoking now, because nicotine isn?t the only hold that smoking has on them. That?s the benefit of using electronic cigarettes to decrease nicotine over time.

Electronic Cigarettes look, feel, and taste like traditional cigarettes while providing nicotine without the associated risks found with smoking. In contrast to the numerous dangers that smoking tobacco comes with, a SMOKEFREE E cigarettes contains only water, propylene glycol, nicotine, scent and flavor. It produces no ashes, no smell, and no cigarette breath.

Electronic Cigarettes have a simulated look of a traditional cigarette with a battery microprocessor that activates an atomized cartridge that injects tiny droplets of liquid into the flowing air that in turn produces mist that is inhaled by the user. The nicotine content found in one cartridge of e-cigs is lower than that found in their tobacco counterparts; however, the user dictates how much they want to consume by replacing the cartridges with lower or higher dose cartridges.

Whether choosing a nicotine patch, nicotine gum or e cigs to reduce nicotine addiction, the important thing is to quit smoking now, for your own health and the health of those around you who suffer the effects of passive smoking, as most Indians do.

?After evaluating the pros & cons of the 3 Ways to quit smoking-Nicotine Patches, Nicotine Gum and Smoke E-Cigs, I have to Declare SMOKEFREE Electronic Cigarette as the Winner.?

Square Highlights Research Showing Electronic Cigarettes May Be Helpful for Quitting Smoking

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2011

Square, the maker of disposable electronic cigarettes, has heard from many customers that Square 82 e-cigs have helped them quit smoking. This trend was recently confirmed by an American Journal of Preventive Medicine abstract that reports promising results from a study on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation using a survey of smokers who had tried e-cigarettes.

?This survey is right in line with the feedback we have heard from satisfied Square customers,? said Mike Ahmad of PhD Marketing, which represents Square. ?These e-cigs may be able to give people that extra boost that finally gets them off cigarettes.?

According to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the survey was conducted because anecdotal evidence has ?generated much publicity among the smoking-cessation community and support from dedicated users; however, little is known about the efficacy of the device as a smoking-cessation tool.?

The online survey was sent to first-time e-cigarette purchasers over a two-week period. The survey asked about the user?s patterns with e-cigarette consumption and whether it was an effective smoking cessation aid. The primary outcome variable of the survey was the rate of smoking abstinence at 6 months after the first e-cigarette purchase.

The results of the survey showed 31.0% had fully stopped smoking at six months. 66.8% reported smoking fewer cigarettes, and 48.8% said they had stopped smoking for a period of time. For respondents who used e-cigs more than 20 times daily, a whopping 70.0% quit completely. Of those who had stopped smoking at the 6-month mark, 34.3% were not using any nicotine products at all.

The abstract noted that ?findings suggest that e-cigarettes may hold promise as a smoking-cessation method? and recommended additional study.

?I have been a die hard pack a day smoker for 20+ years. I am a female in my early 40’s and I was looking for the right E-Cigarette to use to assist me to quit smoking,? said Square customer Mel. ?I cannot speak highly enough of this product. I was able to eliminate smoking harmful chemical cigarettes the same day. Using the Square is so similar to smoking a real cigarette and it really works to satisfy your cravings for nicotine. I give this product an A+ without a doubt. If you are a slave to cigarettes and are tired of it, this is the product for you. IT REALLY WORKS!?
