Cheaper Than Smoking Tobacco Cigarettes
With a 20 pack of cigarettes costing upwards of £7 now, switching to an electric cigarette offers obvious financial benefits. Rather than giving you the usual ‘up to 70% cheaper’ line, let’s look at the actual maths behind the savings.
If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day and a packet costs £7, over the course of the year that’s £2555
A starter kit from eLQD.com costs £17.99, which includes 1x battery, 2x refill cartridges and a USB charger. Each refill cartridge is the equivalent of 20 cigarettes and a packet of refill cartridges costs £9.99 for 5. That means for 20 cigarettes you’re essentially reducing your costs to under £2, which is a saving of at least 70%. We’ll include 2 starter packs in our equation and add a few extra cartridges because most people like to keep spares in their car or at work.
2x Starter Packs (£35.98) + 73x 5 Pack Refill Cartridges (£729.71) = £765.25 Per Year
So, if you’re a 20-a-day smoker, you could be saving yourself over £1789 a year, that’s something to think about.
95% Of Smokers Trying To Quit Fail
Studies have found that without the use of a cessation program 95% of smokers fail to quit smoking and with the use of NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) at least 85% of smokers failed. As you can see, quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do, that’s why it’s easier to switch to electronic cigarettes. E Cigarettes give the user the nicotine the body craves but without the other 4000+ harmful chemicals found in tobacco. As studies have showed, nicotine does not cause cancer and in small doses is less harmful to your body than a cup of coffee.
No Second Hand Smoke, Legal Anywhere
E Cigarettes only produce a water vapour when used, there’s no smoke or harmful carbon monoxide produced. What this means is that parents can stop harming their children with second hand smoke. E-cigs also don’t fall under the restrictions of the smoking ban; users can legally ‘smoke’ their electronic cigarette indoors and in public places, though it’s always polite to explain it’s not a ‘real’ cigarette to those around you.
No More Bad Breath And Stained Teeth
Some chemicals in tobacco cigarettes cause your fingers and teeth to stain yellow, and the smoke inhaled causes your breath to, well, it causes it to stink. Guess what? You get none of these with electric cigarettes, plus a lot of users report being able to have better and more intense taste after switching to ecigs.
MMM…Tastes Like… Chocolate?
Because electronic cigarettes use a liquid known as eliquid rather than tobacco, scientists have had some fun creating vibrant and mouth watering flavours, as well as the usual tobacco and menthol flavours there’s also many, many more available like Mint Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Cherry and other exciting flavours.
