2014 Is The Year to Quit Smoking

– Switch to E-cigs

It may already be past the midway point of January, but it is not too late to make your best new years resolution:

2014 is the year to quit smoking and you can do it with a flavored electronic cigarette. We’ve been talking about how so many people have chosen to quit smoking with e-cigs, and the tide is continuing to turn that way. Just a few months ago we saw a one-day conference held in London that brought together scientists, industry leaders and policymakers to plow through all the information (and misinformation) out there.

UPDATE: The FDA has not approved e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation method. So technically they do not recognize using vaping or electronic cigarettes to quit smoking. The FDA advises using an approved smoking cessation method. This may change in the future once more study has been completed.


The question always remains the same; can switching to e-cigarettes be the game-changer in smokers’ lives?

Now, you don’t have to read the surgeon general’s new report on the consequences of smoking to know how bad it is for you. Although the report does cover 50 years worth of smoking consequences and that on its own may be worth a read! It can only reinforce your decision that 2014 is the year to quit smoking, and a successful attempt would surely make it your best new years resolution ever.

This is where the idea that you can quit smoking with e-cigs figures into the picture. Since this topic has been in the news more and more as of late, you may have heard plenty about the many different flavored electronic cigarettes that are available already on the market. If you want to quit smoking the FDA recommends using an approved method as opposed to e-cigarettes. E-cigs are considered a tobacco product for adult consumers.

Some are more apprehensive about these devices, which is completely normal with any new technology, while others marvel at why anyone would be against a product that many people claims has helped them kick their smoking habit.  If you are new to the idea of e-cigarettes, you are likely asking yourself “what’s all the fuss about electronic cigarettes,” and you would be right. Lets break it down for you in a real simple way to get your thought process started:

What is a flavored electronic cigarette?

 A flavored electronic cigarette is a device that resembles a traditional tobacco cigarette, but has many advantages over your regular tobacco cigarette. An e-cigarette can claim many benefits that have enticed millions of smokers already. E-cigs are odorless, emit no tar, and do not contain the thousands of chemicals found in traditional tobacco cigarettes. They can also be much cheaper than buying a pack of cigarettes, with yearly savings easily reaching the thousands of dollars (depending on how much you smoke now, of course).

Electronic cigarettes come in many different flavors to suit your needs and they can often be smoked indoors, since they produce vapor instead of smoke.

How can a flavored electronic cigarette help me make 2014 the year I quit smoking? 

The best new years resolution you can make for yourself is try a different tobacco product with e-cigs or mods. E-cigarettes provide an option for adult tobacco consumers. A high quality flavored electronic cigarette will give you everything you need to get that some satisfaction. The design of an e-cigarette will give you that familiar look and feel of holding a cigarette in your hand, taking a nice long drag, and blowing out plumes of smoke. Except this time it will be vapor and it won’t make you or those around you stink. Having a replica is nice, but it isn’t enough to help unless that e-cig has the right amount of nicotine that your body is asking for, and a solid throat hit that you are used to. A flavored electronic cigarette can come very close to mimicking that feeling you get now from a traditional cigarette, a huge advantage that has helped many people quit smoking with e-cigs.
