Electronic Cigarettes are a hot topic all over the internet. Video sites, blogs, and forums are full of people who have made the switch to electronic cigarettes and say they will never switch back to the old tobacco cigarettes. Similarly, go out on a Friday or Saturday night and you will see a growing number of people happily puffing away on e cigs in bars, clubs and restuarants.
So why do people love them so much?
Here are just a few reasons to consider switching to electronic cigarettes:
You can smoke electronic cigarettes without bothering non-smokers around you. This is because they don’t produce the strong lingering smells that tobacco cigarettes do. They produce a smoke-like vapor that dissipates quickly and is completely odour free.
You can LEGALLY smoke electronic cigarettes indoors, but it’s good manners to ask permission of the business owner before doing so. As people learn about E Cigs they gain more public acceptance.
Electronic Cigarettes are ECO friendly as they are reusable. They come with a rechargeable battery that can be charged many times over. Some as many as 300 times!
Nicotine cartridges are less expensive than buying a pack of cigarettes at the shops. A pack of 20 cigarettes costs around £5.85. Compare this to a 10-pack of nicotine refill cartridges that costs £9.99 and is roughly equivalent to 150 cigarettes.
Electronic Cigarettes don’t have the tar and other known cancer causing carcinogens typically found in tobacco cigarettes.
You can buy all sorts of different strength nicotine cartridges from high, medium, low to zero strengths to further customise the electronic cigarette experience.

The leisure industry, such as pubs, clubs, bingo halls, etc, has been badly effected by the UK smoking ban, but our revolutionary new product is rapidly gaining social acceptance and allowing consumers a totally legal way to beat the smoking ban by using our electronic cigarettes.
Unfortunately a lot of people are still unaware of this problem solving technology. An electronic cigarette or “e-cigarette” is a battery-powered device that provides a contolled inhaled dose of nicotine by delivering a vaporised liquid nicotine solution. It is the 21st century alternative to traditional “smoked” tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. In addition to nicotine delivery, this vapor also provides a flavour and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke. The reason why electronic cigarettes are not in breach of the smoking ban is because they are battery operated and contain no tobacco.
An electronic cigarette usually takes the form of a standard cigarette or some manner of elongated tube, though many are designed to resemble the outward appearance of real smoking products, like cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. Some manufacturers of the electronic cigarette have striven to mimic traditional tastes of regular tobacco based cigarettes.
Our electronic cigarettes come with a choice of four nicotine strengths, namely zero (no nicotine), low, medium and high strengths, thus allowing our customers to find the right level for them. Another big advantage of electronic cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes is price. To get started, our starter kit is priced at only £24.99 and comes complete with an electronic cigarette, a USB charger and 10 nicotine refill cartridges; which are equivalent to 15 cigarettes each. Therefore our starter pack contains the equivalent of 150 traditional tobacco cigarettes for less than £25. We have calculated that if a 20 per day smoker were to completely switch to electronic cigarettes then over the course of a year they would save a staggering 77% compared to the cost of their unhealthier tobacco counterparts.
Here at the Electronic Cigarette Organisation we pride ourselves on a responsible attitude to the sale of these revolutionary new products. For example, we go to great lengths to ensure that these products are not sold to children and the only flavours we offer are tobacco and menthol, although there are a whole array of different flavours available to choose from. The vapor emitted from an electronic cigarette actually looks like traditional smoke but is made up of water and other ingredients generally regarded as safe. It is this feature that makes electronic cigarettes a complete psychological experience for the smoker and it is widely believed that this is a major factor in why the transition from traditional cigarettes to electronic ones can be so easy for many customers. Alternatively, some of our customers like to use both; traditional cigarettes when it is legal to do so and switch to electronic cigarettes whilst driving, at work or in other public places where traditional smoking is not permitted.
Now that the summer is over and cold, wet nights are coming in fewer people will want to stand outside in the rain to have a cigarette. Our electronic cigarettes can be legally used wherever the public smoking ban is in force and allows people to enjoy their meal, drink or social activity and nicotine intake in the warmth. Our products are now gaining rapid social acceptance and over the next year we anticipate 80% of public places allowing the use of electronic cigarettes. Interestingly, more and more employers are realising that allowing employees to use electronic cigarettes actually increases productivity in the workplace as their use eliminates the need for workers to have a “fag break”.

The benefits of using e cigarettes are starting to look better every time they are discussed.
When they first came onto the market after the smoking ban, with rave reviews and great feedback from smokers, many doctors from highly respectable schools and practices across the world sung their praises too.
People are now beginning to realise just how green e-cigarettes really are. With re-chargeable batteries, they eliminate the need for tobacco altogether. In addition there are thousands less chemicals being put into the atmosphere, which helps improve air quality, which is a big green tick for the e-cig compared to the regular tobacco based products. Also, don’t forget the amount of trees harvested every year to produce the paper used to wrap the tobacco in traditional cigarettes. The e cig has no tobacco and therefore needs no paper.
The paper industry is the 3rd largest industrial polluter with 220 million pounds of toxic pollution into air and water each year, and as the e cigarette industry grows these numbers will reduce. Also, regular cigarettes are very wasteful because the paper is burnt and therefore cannot be recycled.
Cigarette butts also account for an astounding amount of litter throughout the world . The figures from the State of Texas alone gives astronomical numbers:
”Each year more than 1 billion pieces of litter will accumulate on Texas highways. Of those, 13 percent are cigarette butts. That means 130 million butts will be tossed out in Texas alone this year.”
–Texas Department of Transportation.
Throwing cigarette butts out the windows of vehicles also has a tendency to cause wildfires, but since the e-cigarette uses a battery instead of a flame, it could drastically reduce the amount of accidental fires both indoors and outdoors.
Is it any wonder that the e-cigarette is gaining in popularity despite the negative campaigns of the vested interest groups opposing this new smoking technology?

This was the headline in an article within the Daily Mail yesterday.
Mistakes like this are inevitable now as the latest design electronic cigarettes, like the ones we sell, are so realistic it is hard to tell them apart from tobacco cigarettes from a distance. Clearly in this case the civil servant in question was wrong not to approach the driver in person to ascertain if the cigarette was real or electronic.
We feel it will take a test case like this to bring to everyone’s awareness the existence of electronic cigarettes and their legal use in public places, indoor or outdoor.
We market these devices to a range of retail outlets as well as bars, pubs and clubs and it never ceases to amaze us just how many people aren’t yet aware of them. With our help that is slowly changing
