Personally, I am very much against smoking, possibly more than I should be for my own good.
However, having known many smokers in my life, I also understand that smoking is probably the hardest, among human being's bad habits, to get rid off. And in the meantime, when you smoke, you're harming your health and that of those around you, while smelling really bad. There I go again!
The point is you hate to see your dad smoke his life away but you wouldn't want to see him suffer when he needs a fix, either. So how about getting him a pack of electronic cigarette?
This is what Smoking Everywhere offers. Allegedly, its product looks like a cigarette, tastes like a cigarette, feels like a cigarette, but it isn't a cigarette. It contains no tobacco, and the "smoke" is vapor. For this reason, it can be used indoor at public places where regular smoking is banned.
The E-Cigarette does contain, however, the substance that makes you addicted and therefore the main reason why you keep smoking: Nicotine. Basically, the E-Cigarette offers a real smoking experience without any of the unpleasant side-effects of traditional tobacco smoking.
According to Smoking Everywhere, as you inhale the E-Cigarette, a tiny battery vaporizes liquid inside the cigarette to produce the smoke-like vapor. At the same time, the Nicotine cartridge will release nicotine to satisfy the withdrawal.
Depending on how heavy of a smoker you are, you can choose between three options of Nicotine cartridges: High (16mg), Medium (11mg) and Low (6mg). For those who like smoking just for the act of smoking, they can pick the None (0mg) cartridge. You can also choose from different flavors, just like in real cigarettes.
A Smoking Every E-Cigarete Kit costs $149 and includes two Electric Cigarette rechargeable batteries, five high-strength (16mg) tobacco flavored cartridges, a main charger adapter, a power lead and a manual. It also comes with a one-year warranty.
It's important to note that, when you smoke the E-Cigarette, the tip of the cigarette also light up, not by flame but via an LED. The cigarette, for this reason will not produce ash or get shorter. Each cartridge is equivalent to about 20 real cigarettes.
I don't smoke and therefore don't know how different the E-Cigarette is from a real one. You can check out some real experience here. I do believe, however, this is a good way for you to slowly quit.
Though different from the real cigarette in many ways, the E-Cigarette has one thing in common: you will not be able to return it once you have smoked it.
