It’s a bold statement, but yes, it is possible to save money and at the same time be healthy by smoking cigarettes. What’s the catch? Instead of inhaling cancer causing, unhealthy tobacco smoke you inhale odorless nicotine infused water vapor. You don’t even need to worry about finding a match or light for this cigarette either, it’s electric! Keep reading to learn more how this revolutionary electronic “smokeless” cigarette is improving the way people smoke and at the same time saving people hundreds of dollars.
Why You Should Go Smokeless
You don’t need me to tell you the reasons why you should cut down or quit smoking. You’ve heard it all before. You know it’s bad for you, but you probably didn’t care enough to quit for good or you tried and found it too difficult. It’s one of those guilty pleasures that you liked doing so you kept doing it anyway. But here are 2 big problems (besides the health issue) with smoking tobacco cigarettes: 1) the number of places where you can smoke cigarettes are decreasing and 2) the taxes for cigarettes keep going up. This means even if you want to keep smoking cigarettes finding a comfortable place to smoke and not going broke at the same time is going to be increasingly difficult.
With smokeless cigarettes you can smoke them ANYWHERE and they aren’t taxed the same way as traditional cigarettes because they DON’T contain any tobacco.

|Smokeless electronic cigarettes give you freedom to choose where you smoke, but also do much more for you. With it you can:
What Exactly is a Smokeless Cigarette?
Each manufacturer’s smokeless electronic cigarette is designed slightly different, however all typically share similar parts. The inhaler is where a user places their mouth and inhales. This is also where the liquid that is to be converted into vapor is stored. The atomizing device is a heating device which heats the liquid to turn it into vapor. The battery component houses the electricity needed to power the atomizer. And then finally the indicator light is an LED light which lights up when a user inhales (thus simulating the same effect as smoking a real cigarette).
The electronic cigarette doesn’t burn tobacco like a traditional cigarette, but instead electronically heats up a liquid (typically stored in cartridges) which turns the liquid into a vapor, very much like steam, which then a user can inhale. The term “vaping” is sometimes used in placed of “smoking” because technically you aren’t breathing in smoke anymore. Normally the liquid is mixed with different flavors and nicotine so when a user inhales they can still get similar feelings to traditional smoking without all the health risks associated with traditional smoking.
The video below gives you a much better idea of what you would be getting if you got your own smokeless cigarette.
How Do Smokeless Cigarettes Save You Money?
One of the biggest ways you save money is that smokeless electronic cigarettes aren’t taxed the same way traditional tobacco cigarettes are. Each and every time you go to the store to pick up a pack of smokes you pay both a Federal Excise tax which is currently $0.69 a pack and depending on the state that you live in up to $2.57 additional per pack! This puts a carton of your favorite cigarettes easily over $50. And that number can only go up as states traditionally like to use tobaccoo as a great fund raising tool. However, with smokeless cigarettes once you have invested in the starter equipment (the battery and the atomizer) your only additional cost is the nicotine cartridges.
Let’s do a comparison to see how much you could potentially save in 1 year by smoking an electronic cigarette versus traditional cigarettes. Let’s assume that you smoke on average 1 pack per day, a pack costs $6, 1 smokeless cigarette starter kit costs $90, 1 smokeless cigarette cartridge is equal a pack of cigarettes, and 1 cartridge costs $3.50.
Smokeless Electronic Cigarettes
So by conservative estimates in 1 year you could save over $822.50 by switching from traditional tobacco cigarettes to smokeless electronic cigarettes! But not only are electronic cigarettes more cost effective they are also a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes.
Why Are Smokeless Cigarettes Healthier for You?
One of the biggest reasons why smokeless cigarettes are healthier than normal tobacco cigarettes is because they produce ZERO smoke. What makes traditional cigarettes so dangerous and cancerous is when tobacco is burned the smoke releases thousands of different chemicals. The National Cancer Institute has reported that of those chemicals over 60 substances are specifically known to cause cancer. This is why not only tobacco smoke is bad for the smoker but also bad for any people who are standing nearby who inhale second hand smoke. Smokeless cigarettes on the other hand creates only water vapor and no smoke, so they are healthier than normal cigarettes.
Dr. Murray Laugesen, a leading researcher in the field of electronic cigarettes, smoking policy and cigarettes, summarized it well.
People “are not going to die from an e-cigarette – but they could die tomorrow from a heart attack due to their smoking. The carcinogens that we have found are in very, very small quantities, just above the level of detection.”
Why Can You Use Smokeless Cigarettes Anywhere?
The smoking ban laws that were created are very specific in that they target only the smoking of tobacco cigarettes. The ban did not include smokeless cigarettes or nicotine inhaling devices. This meas legally you can smoke an electronic cigarette anywhere you want. However, this doesn’t mean people might look at you curiously, but once you explain how there is no danger and they don’t smell any smoke most people will probably thank you for finding a smoking alternative which doesn’t harm them.
Brands of Smokeless Cigarettes You Should Buy
Just like there are many different brands of traditional cigarettes there are many different brands of smokeless electronic cigarettes. Fundamentally, most electronic cigarettes are built the same. However, where the difference may lie is where the cigarette is built and the design and style of the cigarette. Below are 3 popular different brands that we recommend buying.
What are People Saying About Smokeless Cigarettes?
|Skeptical at First, But an E-Cigarette Believer Now
I’ve been a smoker for about 10 years now. For the past year my doctor has been hassling me to quit smoking. It’s been really tough. I know I should, but I admit it…I’m hooked. Anyway, I was flipping through Life & Style magazine when I saw a feature about celebrities smoking e-cigarettes…specifically SmokeStiks e-cigarettes. I was curious to see what the hype was all about. After searching online for more information on electronic cigarettes I decided to take the plunge and recently bought a SmokeStik. I’ve tried nicotine patches and gum and failed miserably at getting myself off of tobacco cigarettes…so I was pretty skeptical if these e-cigs would do the trick. However, after my first week of using the e-cigs I hadn’t even smoked one tobacco cigarette yet! To be honest it’s not exactly like smoking tobacco cigarettes, but after getting used to it, it definitely has been a great replacement (plus I don’t reek of cigarette smoke anymore). I’m sticking with my smokestik for now

You get the same high as many of the other electronic cigarettes I’ve tried, anybody who uses electronic cigarettes will know what I mean. The thing about this one that stands out is the color. It’s black and lights up with a blue light, so it’s obviously not a real cigarette. This draws attention and I like that! It stands out and the nicotine rush is just what I needed to kick the habit of regular cigarettes.
|Electronic Cigarettes are Here to Stay
I Love my e-smokes and Cigana is the brand I choose. Not for any particular reason but it was the first one I tried and it worked really well. I like the taste and I have reduced my regular smoking by 5 to 10 fold. I love the freedom of smoking anywhere without looking for smoking areas. If I want to be social I will still have an occasional tobacco cigarette with friends but not often. I bless the inventor of the electronic cigarette.
