Stop Smoking In Style

Freshcig pastel range copy

You may remember after Christmas I posted about my brothers experience with electronic cigarettes, I personally have never smoked (pause for applause) so I’m not about to lecture those of you who do to stop (we all have our vices, mine is Diet Coke – which is also apparently going to kill me) however for those of you who have been trying since the New Year or are contemplating doing so I thought you might be interested in these. I had no idea you could get anything other than fake cigarette looking e-cigs until a girl I work with pulled out one of these in pink.. I’m going to be honest with you, I thought it was some kind of illegal device but it turns out it’s just another variation and although I’m not suggesting you non-smokers take up ‘vapourising’ I think they’re pretty cute.

When I posted last lots of you shared your own experiences with quitting aids, as I said I can’t tell you whether these devices work as I have no use for them myself so I do encourage you to do the same here, any support from others in the same position is always going to be helpful. My colleague tells me that although she hasn’t given up entirely (I think for many the social aspect of smoking is what draws them back) she uses her vapouriser while she’s home and it’s helped her cut back considerably.

Now if only Freshcig could come up with a cute gimmick to replace my silver can of aspartame.. Have any of you tried this brand?

The new pastel range will be available online here soon

    Only you could make a sponsored post over something you dont do/ use. I know i will be accused of hating and i would bet that this doesn’t get posted.

      I really didn’t understand how they worked at all and to a degree I still don’t but as you say it’s interesting to me

    I’m normally a big fan, but this is a disappointing post to see. In the US, e-cigarette companies are not allowed to use cessation claims in their advertising (because that would require them to be regulated by the FDA), so I don’t like seeing possible back doors to that rule with sponsored blog posts (regardless of the location). If it does help people quit, great, but so far the evidence doesn’t support that. Until this products are tested, we don’t know whether they’re truly safer than cigarettes. Maybe they are, and maybe in the future they’ll be a useful cessation device, but for now that’s not what’s happening.

    E-cigarette manufacturers are using the same type of advertising cigarette makers used to use to get and keep people hooked on nicotine – http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/06/business/media/campaigns-for-electronic-cigarettes-borrow-from-their-tobacco-counterparts.html?emc=eta1&_r=1&. This is marketing geared towards young women and children – cartoon, fun colors, flavors, and the “cool” factor.

      I’ve had the same discussion with people recently as I’ve learned more about these e-cigs. I think they’re going to be the new trend among teens rather than smoking and although that’s not ideal surely it’s better than cigarettes? I’ve never smoked so I can’t tell you how the experiences differ and I definitely agree that they will still be addictive but I’m not a doctor and don’t claim to be so I don’t KNOW that these items will help wean you off cigarettes. From the information I’ve found online I would recommend the concept to a friend or family member and so feel comfortable promoting it on my blog however I appreciate you adding new information, it’s important that people share their own experiences so that readers don’t just take my own personal opinion as gospel. The more info the better when it comes to health!

    I’ve been considering a one of these as an alternative to tobacco for a little while – these have swayed me, definitely going to order one 🙂

        It’s now been 6 weeks and 2 days since my last cigarette! Well… aside from a cheeky one at a party a fortnight back – but the good news is that I hated the taste and it just reaffirmed to me that it’s not something I want to do anymore. E-cigs are being slated all over the place recently, but it’s the only thing that has worked for me (and for many others!) so that can only be a good thing right?!
