New Study Shows Electronic Cigarettes May Help Unmotivated Smokers Cut Down or Quit, Says Square

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2011

Square has long believed that their disposable electronic cigarettes can?and do?help people cut down or even stop smoking cigarettes. That idea was recently supported in an Italian study posted on the BMC Public Health website, according to a new article by the American Counsel of Science and Health (ACSH).

The ACSH article states that electronic cigarettes stood up favorably in this first clinical trial. Results indicate that the electronic devices may not only be more effective than traditional nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) at helping people who want to quit smoking; e-cigarettes may also help cigarette smokers reduce their smoking?even those who express no interest in kicking the habit.

The small clinical trial was conducted on 40 healthy adults, who smoked regularly and had no expressed intention of quitting. Intervention was limited to providing each smoker in the study group electronic cigarettes and conducting a baseline assessment and four follow-up clinic visits. The smokers were simply told to use the e-cigarettes as they pleased?but were not instructed to quit smoking regular cigarettes.

Over the next six months, 22.5 percent of the participants reported that they had completely quit smoking. Another 32.5 percent reported that they had cut down their cigarette consumption by at least half. In sum, over half of the smokers were able to quit or significantly cut down their cigarette use. This outcome is especially impressive, according to the article, considering that the six-month quit rate for approved cessation aids is well below 20 percent?and those results are derived from smokers who want to quit and are followed closely in a clinical setting.

?This trial simulated a real-life experience, where no motivation or support was offered to subjects to quit smoking,? said ACSH advisor Dr. Mike Siegel, professor at Boston University’s School of Public Health. ?This could well be groundbreaking.? Siegel indicated that he is excited to see the results of more extensive clinical trials, particularly involving subjects who are motivated to quit, stating, ?I am confident that the success rate will be significantly higher.?

Moving from regular cigarettes to e-cigs can be a good health move. Jean-Fran

Company Supports E-Cigarette Awareness Promotion in Times Square

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2011

Earlier this week an e-cigarette awareness group known as National Vapers Club furnished an ad in Times Square with the purpose of raising awareness about electronic cigarettes. New York City lawmakers put a bill through legislation that would ban cigarettes from being used in public parks, beaches and pedestrian plazas including world famous Times Square. Since that time, a debate has arisen on smoker?s rights. This piece of legislation has opened Times Square vendors and visitors to the prospect of using electronic cigarettes which are still legal in these places. The ad furnished by National Vapers Club suggests to visitors the option of using e-cigarettes.

The ad is rehashing debate between those who support and oppose electronic cigarettes: E-cigarette companies and advocacy groups on one side and New York legislators and the Food and Drug Administration on the other. E-cigarettes are hand-held electronic devises that produce liquid vapor instead of smoke.

One of the companies supporting the ads, South Beach Smoke, released a statement this morning claiming, ?The National Vapers Club has made a bold statement for e-cigarette fans everywhere, and we fully support their awareness campaign?. There is no word yet on whether the National Vapers Club plans on extending their campaign or furnishing more ads in public places, but their website claims the group already has,

??.actively helped prevent bans on indoor use and sale purchase of e-cigarettes in 7 states and 2 countries?.has helped many local vapers clubs get set up and have their first meetings?. put out numerous press releases to mass media lists?

South Beach Smoke, one of the e-cigarette companies supporting the National Vaper Club commented on the club by stating, ?This club is made up on e-cigarette enthusiasts who want to get the word out about these fantastic products. They are doing a fantastic job and all of us here at South Beach Smoke support them 100%?.

South Beach Smoke is an electronic cigarette company based out of Miami Beach, Florida. Formed in 2010, the company has quickly become one of the premier electronic cigarette companies in the country.

Square Smoke Announces Online Marketing Partnership with Hearst Media Services / Bay Area

(Vocus/PRWEB) May 24, 2011

Square Smoke, a new company that produces disposable electronic cigarettes, or ?e-cig,? announced today that it is partnering with Hearst Media Services / Bay Area to increase its visibility online and build brand awareness. The Hearst Media Services / Bay Area multimedia promotion program harnesses the popularity of SFGate.com as a source of high quality news and information to help subscribers improve their standing in search engine results. Hearst Media Services / Bay Area is also developing and distributing news content in the form of frequent press releases about Square Smoke through the largest online PR channel in the world.

?We are very excited to have partnered with Hearst Media Services / Bay Area,? said Mike Ahmad of Square Smoke. ?We make a great product, and we want to get the word out. We trust this partnership will increase traffic to our website, build brand awareness, and increase sales.?

Electronic cigarettes are becoming an increasingly popular smoking alternative to traditional cigarettes. The idea behind electronic cigarettes is to eliminate much of the social hassle, health risk, and cost associated with smoking traditional cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes can be used in any public location where traditional cigarettes are prohibited without offending or endangering others. Users expel only water vapor with little to no aroma, and none of the dangers of secondhand smoke.

In addition, they offer an alternative to traditional cigarettes. E cigs are smoke-free and contain thousands fewer chemicals than regular cigarettes. A recent joint analysis by the University of California at Berkeley and Boston College and noted that ?a preponderance of the available evidence shows them to be much safer than tobacco cigarettes.?

Possibly the most practical advantage of Square Smokes disposable cigarettes is the fact that they last for 500+ puffs, which is the equivalent of two packs of cigarettes, but they only cost as much as a single pack. Square Smoke is now selling their products online and nationwide in participating bars, restaurants, movie theaters, gas stations, and even convenience stores such as Chevron Stations.

Square 82 E-Cig Rises to #1 Spot as the Leading Disposable Electronic Cigarette in America

Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) July 19, 2011

Square 82 E-Cig, manufacturer of long-lasting, high-quality disposable electronic cigarettes (or e-cig), has quickly secured its place as the number one disposable electronic cigarette in America, according to PhD Marketing.

PhD Marketing attributes Square 82?s market leadership to the product?s relative low cost, convenience, vapor potency and likeness to real cigarettes.

Square 82 disposable e-cigs? $ 6.99 price puts them in reach of most consumers, and because they last approximately 500 puffs (equivalent to 2 packs of traditional cigarettes), they make better economic sense than rechargeable e-cigs.

Rechargeable e-cigarettes also require a large upfront investment?from $ 70 to $ 200. They also require battery changes every few months and must be replaced over time; sooner if lost or broken. This makes them a costly investment and comes with a great deal of financial risk.

?Most people are reluctant to lay out hundreds of dollars just to try an electronic cigarette,? said Mike Ahmad of PhD Marketing. ?Square 82 electronic cigarettes are well within the price range of traditional cigarettes, and in most areas of the country, they are even cheaper.?

People also tend to stick with Square 82 over other e-cigarettes because Square?s products deliver a clean, robust vapor that feels more like a drag off a traditional cigarette than the vapors of other brands, according to PhD Marketing.

Inhaling from a Square 82 e-cigarette feels a lot like inhaling cigarette smoke, but all that is expelled is water vapor with little to no aroma, and none of the dangers of secondhand smoke. That means Square 82 e-cigs do not stink up the room or clothes or breath, and the convenience of being able to use them almost anywhere is appealing to people looking for a cigarette alternative.

?The vapor mist dissipates almost instantly but still gives the smoker the look and feel of smoking cigarettes,? said John Kamar of PhD Marketing.

A recent blog post about Square 82?s menthol product on http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com states: ?It has a really nice design, it lights up a nice green around the middle, button, and the end, and most importantly the flavor is still here without having to refill and get juice all over my hands. No recharging, no refilling, no mess. Best part, flavor is still the EXACT same as when I bought it, very vivid.?

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!?
