  • UK MP claims that pregnant women should be given free e-cigs

    An MP in Colchester, UK, has stated that women who are struggling to quit should be given free e-cigarettes in order to aid them quitting cigarettes for good. 

    MP Will Quince stated that vaping and e-cigarettes were "a great transition off smoking and nicotine entirely". This issue will be debated in their next budget. The MP suggested a levy.

    Will Quince,  said smoking was linked to a huge amount of problems during pregnancy. He added that: "these products must surely be better than smoking, especially for pregnant women." His vested interest in the subject comes after he presented to parliament a campaign on baby loss.

    "We do know, the evidence is out there, that it (vaping) is a great transition off smoking".  We here at Vaper Empire wholeheartedly agree, with the majority of our customers reporting that their use of e-cigarettes has started through a desire to quit smoking.

    What do you think of the UK's progressive stance on vaping? Leave a comment below.

  • Vaping vs smoking: Why you can't compare

    Ever wondered why people swap over from smoking to vaping? Yet another study has shown that the lung cancer risk is completely incomparable. 

    The study, by the Journal of Aerosol Science, examined the lung cancer risk for people who are active vapers and anyone who may be affected by their secondhand vapour. It looked closely at the particles in vapour and compared them to the smoke emitted from cigarettes, and found that the amount of harmful substance that was emitted from vapour was substantially lower.  This study of both active and passive vapours has reconfirmed what we have known for quite some time now- e-cigs are much safer than smoking tobacco.

     

    Just in the US, approximately half a million people die from tobacco-related illnesses like lung cancer, throat cancer and other diseases. Even non-smokers are at risk due to the harmful particles emitted when others smoke within a close proximity. A huge 41,000 people (or more) die each year in the United States due to illness related to second-hand smoke.

     

    Studies like this are increasing the amount of health and governing bodies that are recommending vaping as a healthier alternative to smoking. They aren't comparable in terms of their effect on health. Vaping has proven again and again to be a very attractive alternative to smoking.

     

  • Expert tips to help you to quit smoking, once and for all

    A lot of our customers come to Vaper Empire as a way of quitting smoking after years of trying to kick their habit. We thought we'd help you with your journey to quit. There are our ultimate tips on how to quit smoking and start embracing a healthier lifestyle. 

    Here are our top five tips for quitting once and for all:

    Prepare yourself: 
    Deciding to quit is one thing, but you need to prep the house, the car, and even do some mental prep to ensure that you can stay focused and on your goal to give up cigarettes. You might also want to prepare your close friends and family and ensure you have their support. Tell them your plans so that they don't offer you a smoke when you're feeling vulnerable.  Ensure you don't go anywhere that you feel you might be tempted like a pub, club or even where the smokers hang out at work. Get rid of your smokes and lighters, all of it.

    Curb cravings:
    Whether you want to try patches, lollipops or exercise, ensure you have a cravings contingency plan, something to distract you while you're craving a cigarette. Don't get stuck in a downward spiral and race out and buy a pack of smokes at a servo. Take a deep breath and remember your planning and use a distraction until it passes.

    Try vaping: 
    We've all heard the stories of vaping completely transforming the lives of former smokers, and it's true. Many of our most loyal customers smoked for 10, 20 or 30 years before taking up vaping, and they now save hundreds of dollars per week. In addition, the director of Public health in Scotland, Dr Andrew Fraser, recently stated that "E-cigarettes are a lot safer than cigarettes", so you can be sure that E-cigarettes are a great way to help you give up smoking.

    Support system: 
    Many people use the "MyQuitBuddy" app as a support when they quit. It can help you to stay focused and committed and help you through a craving. Also,  be sure to reach out to friends and family and tell them that you're quitting and that you need them to be supportive of your goals.

    Stay focused:
    Remember that you're quitting for a reason. Whether it's for your health, to feel better, to save money or something else, it's important to note these reasons and to stay completely committed to these goals at all times.

  • Addiction specialist and doctor says that vaping benefits outweigh risks

    A doctor and addiction specialist, David Outridge, from the Hunter Valley in NSW has stated that the benefits of vaping far outweigh the risks.

    The Senate has recently been examining e-cigarettes as part of an inquiry: "Following a referral on 25 May 2017 from the Minister for Health, Aged Care and Sport, The Hon Greg Hunt MP, the Committee will inquire into and report on the use and marketing of electronic cigarettes (E-cigarettes) and personal vaporisers in Australia." -aph.gov.au

    The general practitioner, David Outridge stated that there is sufficient evidence to show that e-cigarettes are vastly safer than smoking tobacco products: "there is little doubt in my mind that would be a big step forward in relation to harm minimisation, both as a way to help people reduce their harm from smoking and in some cases stop smoking," he said, according to ABC Newcastle.

    Doctor Outridge says the balance of risks and benefits leans heavily towards enabling the availability of nicotine liquid for the tobacco consumer market.

    "I think it's an addiction that is going to be with us for some time.

    "We have been fighting against the tobacco companies and they've got plenty of resources and so if they're willing to do things in a safer way I think it is a step forward."

     

  • Introducing our newest device: The Vibe

    You asked, and we delivered: A brand new, bigger device, with a huge tank and a long life battery.

    Introducing, The Vibe. You can get it in both a starter kit and a deluxe starter kit.

    If you're considering upgrading your hardware or buying your first kit, then the Vibe deluxe kit is perfect for you. It has everything you need to start your vaping journey.

    The enhanced, curved lines produce an incredible hit, so we recommend selecting a lower nicotine strength when ordering nicotine e-liquid & with your new coils, allowing e-liquid to soak in for approximately 10 minutes.

    CP left a review for the Vibe: "I received my Vaper Empire Vibe today and just wanted to say.. you guys got it right! It's awesome and I am one very happy customer. I have tried so many different appliances.. and all have been plagued with battery problems, leakage problems, coil issues, etc. I have been vaping for about 3 years now, and the Vibe is the best appliance I have used. "

     

     

  • Vaping could save 6.6 million American smokers

    A recent study that has come out of Georgetown University in the United States has found that the potential benefit of switching to vaping could mean a total of 86.7 million extra years to the lifespans of 6.6 million people.

    The findings of the research will allegedly “ help the (United States) Surgeon General and the public health community develop a strategy to reach the ‘endgame’ for cigarette smoking,” the scientists said, according to reuters.com.

    “Old policies need to be supplemented with policies that encourage substituting e-cigarettes for the far more deadly cigarettes,” said David Levy of Georgetown University Medical Center.

    The research projected possible outcomes, and in the best case scenario, the study projected that 6.6 million cigarette smokers could avoid premature death by switching to vaping.  Additionally, even in the worst case scenario, a huge 1.6 million people could avoid premature death by quitting smoking and vaping instead.

    “In addition (to lives saved), there would be tremendous health benefits including reduced disease disability to smokers, reduced pain and suffering, and reduced exposure to second hand smoke,” Levy said.

     

  • How often do you need to change your coils and clearomisers?

    If you just started vaping, it may be tricky to get your head around all of the new terminology, the huge subculture and all of the unfamiliar products at your disposal. 

    Or, if you've been vaping for a long time but just got a new vaporiser,  don't fear, we've made it as simple as possible for you to know when to change your coils and clearomisers for all of the Vaper Empire models.

    Basically, coils and clearomiser wicks both degrade over time. And although they will still work, they will not produce vapour as effectively as if they're replaced as often as needed, and will produce a burning taste and can make it harder to inhale the vapour. Ideally, you should be changing your clearomiser wicks and coils regularly to avoid these.

    Here is our guide on when you should be replacing your coils and clearomiser wicks for each Vaper Empire product:

    Vantage Clearomisers

    • CE4 Disposable Clearomiser - Change every 3 - 4 weeks for optimal use
    • Vantage V5 Clearomiser Coils – Change every 3 - 4 weeks for optimal use


    The Viva Titanium Clearomisers

    • Change every 4 – 5 weeks for optimal use


    V-Twist Clearomiser Coils

    • Change every 3 - 4 weeks for optimal use


    Venture Clearomiser Coils

    • Change every 3 - 4 weeks

    Vibe Clearomiser Coils

    • Change every 2 - 3 weeks

    Note – The V-Pack uses a cartomisers that contain 300 puffs and are then disposed of once they are exhausted.

     

     

  • Scottish health body states that E-cigs are 'definitely' less harmful than smoking

    E-cigarettes are "definitely" less harmful than smoking tobacco, health bodies in Scotland have stated for the first time, according to BBC.

    NHS Health Scotland said it wanted to "clarify" confusion around the harms and benefits of vaping devices.

    More than 20 organisations have signed up to the consensus, which was led by NHS Health Scotland.

    But health chiefs said that using e-cigarettes while still smoking did not provide any health benefits.

    The consensus statement, published by Scotland's national health education and promotion agency, was agreed by the Scottish government, health boards, academia and charities such as the British Lung Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

    Dr Andrew Fraser, director of public health science at NHS Health Scotland, told BBC Scotland: "E-cigarettes have been around for a number of years now and we are learning more and more about them but I think it is safe to say that they are a lot safer than cigarettes.

    "If we are trying to help people make a decision about giving up smoking tobacco then e-cigarettes are a good option to consider."

    Dr Fraser said vaping was not available on NHS prescription, unlike some other treatments, but it was an option for those trying to give up smoking cigarettes.

    "We would encourage people to consider them and we would encourage people providing smoking cessation serves to offer them as an option to people who are willing to pay for them," he said

    Dr Fraser said he wanted to deliver a "positive" message for e-cigs, saying they "weren't anything like as dangerous as cigarettes".

    He said there had been reports that likened the risk of vaping to smoking tobacco but this was not the case.

    However, he added that e-cigarettes were not risk-free.

    "They contain nicotine, which is addictive in itself, and they contain and a number of other combustible materials," Dr Fraser said.

    "But if you take it all in the round and compare it with the alternative they are a lot less harmful than cigarettes."

    He added that ideally vaping would be used a way to give up smoking entirely and he advised against "double running" - taking both tobacco and e-cigarettes.

    Last year, Scotland's largest health board ruled that e-cigarettes could be used within the grounds of its hospitals.

    NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde decided to allow restricted use of the devices after new evidence that they helped tackle tobacco smoking.

    Tobacco smoking was banned across all health grounds in Scotland in April 2015, but health boards were given discretion over the use of vaping devices outside buildings.

    Cancer chemicals

    Sheila Duffy, chief executive of Ash Scotland, a charity aiming to reduce the harm caused by tobacco, said the joint statement on e-cigarettes brought "clarity" to the issue.

    "There is now agreement that vaping e-cigarettes carries less risk than smoking tobacco," she said.

    "Although we still don't know the long-term health effects of vaping, we can be confident that any smoker switching entirely to e-cigarettes will be taking in far fewer cancer-causing chemicals.

    "Tobacco is lethal and I'd encourage anyone who smokes to find a way of quitting that works for them, which could include using e-cigarettes, and to make use of the free NHS stop-smoking support available to help."

        Similar to lemon wedges, the strength of the flavour of mint leaves may help ease the effects of vapers tongue.
