Why Quit Cigarettes?
Opting to effectively switch from traditional cigarettes to something more readily and widely-accepted in society would point towards transdermal nicotine patches. We will say in the most unbiased sense possible, it might work for you.
The thing about nicotine patches are that, yes, they are widely available everywhere you can possibly hope to find them at. They're considered a pharmaceutical product, so your typical pharmacy or drug store is likely to stock them.
When it comes to smoking, the act of doing so was still to consume your nicotine while also becoming a ritualistic routine. In other words, an oral fixation element was involved. While this particular alternative may work for alleviating the withdrawal symptoms of nicotine, it would likely exacerbate the cravings of your oral fixation.
Similar to the nicotine patches, nicotine gum is also a pharmaceutical product likely found at most major pharmacies and drug stores. The concept is simple, when you are craving your nicotine, eat a piece of gum laden with a concentrated amount of nicotine.
Again, similar to the nicotine patches, the results are inconsistent. Yes, it may help you alleviate your nicotine cravings, and may even alleviate a degree of oral fixation. However, the bodily response to effectively eating nicotine and digesting it creates it's own set of problems.
This sort of reaction falls in line with most user experiences about nicotine gum. In our opinion, we'll have to take a hard pass on the gum!
So what's left? Your traditional switch and quit methods more or less don't solve the problem of truly quitting the cigarettes. Luckily, there is an alternative that not only helps you make the switch to effectively quit, but the entire experience of it makes it quick, easy, and quite honestly, fun to take part in. This particular experience is called Vaping.
The concept is simple - you are inhaling flavored water vapor designed to deliver a controlled amount of nicotine each time you take a puff!
That's right. Making the switch to vaping solves BOTH of the hurdles the traditional methods failed to address. One, you get your nicotine fix. And two, you still satisfy your oral fixation.
On top of that, vaping flavored e-liquids, or "flavors" as we industry-folk call it takes a more enjoyable spin on an activity that has likely dominated your life for years. When was the last time you can recall vaping a strawberry flavor like our UNICHEW? Or even a bold vanilla custard flavor such as UNINILLA?
Not only do our flavors smell and taste great, but it also provides a psychological feeling that disassociates you from the traditional tobacco smell and taste and replaces it with a more-inviting aroma.
Pump the Brakes! I thought vaping has a learning curve to it?
We get it, you probably have heard of vaping before. You're inhaling these flavored e-liquids with a device. And that means the device has numbers on it and numbers are scary and we can't be bothered to learn a whole new way of adopting this method of consuming nicotine. We get it!
On top of that, because you are engaging in a new way of consuming nicotine, and there are devices, tanks, coils, and not to mention flavors involved, the initial upfront cost of making the switch might scare most people away. Again, we get it.
You're in luck though, we've made easier than ever to make the switch from cigarettes to vaping!
One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive a vape device of their choice alone with a 1-year supply of BLVK Premium E-Liquids. BOOM! Initial upfront investment is taken care of right off the bat, you get your oral fixation covered, AND you get your nicotine fix on your terms.
