Review – Smoke Relief Electronic Cigarette

Smoke Relief

Lately we have been under huge pressure regarding our smoking in general, especially smoking in the house. In a few months time it will be categorically a big NO NO! I guess in summer time it will not be such a big deal, but imagine running outside and standing in the rain every few hours when you want to have a smoke. I was looking at our options and tried to find a solution to this problem. I know that giving up would be the best option but unfortunately this is easier said than done. I read about electronic cigarettes but I did not have a lot of faith in them. So when I was offered the opportunity to try and then review a Smoke Relief Electronic Cigarette I jumped right at it.

Firstly let’s answer some basic questions.

What are electronic cigarettes?

Ever seen “smoke” machines in nightclubs?

It’s actually vapourised glycerine. Smoke Relief electronic cigarettes or “e-cigarettes” are battery-powered devices that give you inhaled doses of glycerine vapour mixed with nicotine and one of seven flavourings (tobacco, menthol, cherry, peach, cappuccino, vanilla, and apple.)

How do electronic cigarettes work?

Each electronic cigarette consists of a battery and a cartomiser (atomiser and cartridge combined). As you draw on the cigarette the cartomiser gets powered up and vapourises some of the flavoured nicotine which you inhale as “smoke”.

So why use it?

  • Looks and feels like a real cigarette – although it’s a bit heavier
  • Freedom to smoke it anywhere in the UK – buses, trains, planes, bars, clubs, work
  • Cheaper than cigarettes – roughly equivalent to £1 a packet.
  • Nothing to offend other people around you
  • No teeth discolouration or nicotine-stained fingers

I was sent a Deluxe Rechargeable eCigarette Kit. It came in a lovely sealed box. First impressions are very important and this kit for sure leaves a good one. Deluxe Rechargeable eCigarette Kit would make a perfect gift for someone without any extra fancy packaging. It looks really nice and luxurious.

Your magic box full of wonders

This is what you get

So what do you get in your lovely box?

–       Deluxe Smoke Relief Charger Box

–       2 x Lithium-ion cigarette batteries

–       USB cable and charger

–       Instruction Manual

–       5 x 18mg tobacco cartridges – equivalent to 100 cigarettes

–       5 x cartridges of your chosen flavour and strength – equivalent to 100 cigarettes – I was sent a 18mg mixed flavours selection including Apple, Cherry, Peach, Vanilla and Cappucino

At first I wasn’t so sure what to do… but I didn’t even open the box. For days I was walking around it, just looking at it and telling myself “Ok, today is the day!” Finally one day I built up the courage to open it up and give it a go… I am really glad I did so.

Once you open it, the rest is really easy. You follow clear and easy instructions and within minutes you can be ready to go.

I started with a tobacco flavoured cigarette. I found it a little bit heavy so I swapped it for the Apple flavoured one and it was a good call. They are really great! It is just like having an old style cigarette without the awful stink. While using it I did not find any downside. You still keep your hand busy, you still get your nicotine fix and you still can see smoke coming out of it… and most importantly you are reducing the health risks for you and everyone around you.

I did however find a few areas where they could be made just a little bit better and more user friendly. Flavoured cartomisers have no markings on them. I did find it a little hard to pick the right flavour I wanted at the time. Your charging box has 4 slots for cartomisers, but as they all look the same, it is not so easy to remember which slot was taken by which flavour. And my second suggestion: if possible it would be nice to make them lighter. Mark smokes really tiny roll-ups and for him keeping it is quiet uncomfortable; it doesn’t feel right due to the heavy weight.

In general I would recommend Smoke Relief Electronic Cigarette to everyone who still smokes. It doesn’t have any real downsides. This change would be very positive for you, your health, your family and friends and of course much easier on your wallet… just think what you could buy using all the money you will save!

There is a one thing to remember! Electronic Cigarettes are NOT an aid to giving up smoking.

Smoke Relief electronic cigarettes are a harm-free alternative to old-style tobacco cigarettes for existing smokers. They are not a particularly good way to give up smoking because you are still addicted to the nicotine and you are still getting the full smoking experience. If you want to give up smoking you are best advised to just stop smoking or use a support group like Nicotine Anonymous or for more general advice www.smokefree.nhs.uk.

  2. Whatever helps people quit or cut back on smoking, I’m all for it! Nicotine is addictive and very difficult to give up. I’ve never smoked by my husband struggled to quit for a long time and my mother-in-law uses e-cigs and likes them, from what I can tell. Good luck!!

  3. It all makes sense – ciggie cessation products (pharma companies) fighting e-ciggie products! AND – the usa is starting to back banning e-ciggie use! Go figure? Pisses me off too. Bob

  4. Yes, tell everybody you know to search on the web for e-cigarettes to see how large this business is, and how gigantic the selection is for these life saving products is.
    What p*sses me off, though, are the increasing number of stories
    in the major press saying how dreadful they are. Apparently drugs firms – the manufacturers of nicotine harm reduction products are supporting an anti e-cig battle – less so the tobacco
    companies (as you might suspect) – as they
    cigarette companies are investing in them. I can FEEL the benefits of electronic cigarettes.
    Just FYI – that there is always a secret accord with these self interested faceless
    types trying to censure e cigarettes … the authorities should do a lot more to promote their use.
    This makes me cross. Thanks Review – Smoke Relief Electronic Cigarette | Bark Time = everything and nothing.

  5. Please suggest to everyone you know to search on the web for e-cigarettes
    to see how big this business is, and how large the range is for these fantastic products is.

    What really annoys me, though, are the increasing number of stories in the major
    press saying how dreadful they are. Apparently Big Pharma – the producers of
    smoking cessation products are backing an anti vaping smear campaign – not so much the cigarette firms (as you might think) – as these tobacco
    companies are putting money into them. I can
    FEEL the improvements of e cigarettes. Just stating – that there is always a
    secret pact with these b*stards trying to prohibit e cigarettes .
    .. the EU people should do a lot more to support them.
    It makes me depressed.

  6. Make sure you tell everyone you meet to just Google for e-cigarettes to see for themselves how well rooted this industry is, and how huge
    the choice is for these much healthier products is. What p*sses me off,
    though, are the increasing number of stories in the major press saying how dreadful they are.
    It seems, pharma companies – the manufacturers of end smoking helpers are backing an
    anti-e-vape battle – not so much the cigarette firms (as one might
    suspect), as many are starting to think of making them.
    I can really appreciate the health gains of e cigarettes.
    Just saying – that there is always some hidden agenda
    with big companies trying to ban e cigs – our country’s legislators should do a lot more to promoter their use. It makes me depressed. I really hope they don’t ban them.
    Not had a real ciggy for 4 months now thanks to using an e-cig.
    I am a supporter of these electronic cigarettes.

  7. I blog often and I truly thank you for your
    content. The article has really peaked my interest.
    I’m going to take a note of your website and keep checking for new information about once a week. I subscribed to your Feed too.

  8. I tried it, but that’s not really my thing. Since we only smoke outside of the house, we reduced smoking drastically. I hate it to be branded like an outlaw by a country who makes a lot of money with tobacco tax….

I love all comments :-)
