What we know about Smoking

Smoking Kills

Traditional cigarettes are responsible for 6 Million deaths a year and countless more injuries and illnesses. Smoking is responsible for more deaths annually in the US than any other cause.

Environmental Catastrophe

Smoking pollutes the environment in the worst of ways. In the US alone we fill 3 Olympic size swimming pools full of cigarette butts every day! 4.5 Trillion butts are disposed of every year. Smoking is also the #1 cause of house fires in the US.

Lethal Additives

Most brands of cigarettes include toxic additives and chemicals that are the root cause of most smoking related illness. Poisons such as Arsenic, Chloroform, Lead and Formaldehyde along with over 160 more toxic chemicals are common in traditional cigarettes.

Second-Hand Smoke

Second-hand smoke is deadly. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 46,000 premature deaths annually in the US among non-smokers.

What we know about Quitting

Harder than Heroin

Addiction to cigarettes is harder to kick than any other addiction, including Heroin. When you quit there is no buffer system for an addict and the withdrawal symptoms are extremely severe.

3-9% Success Rate

The best smoking cessation methods only produce a 9% success rate. That means that 91% of people who try to quit never do! Cold Turkey only works 3% of the time while Gum, Patches and Prescription Pills only work 5-9% of the time.

Quitting with Consequences

Most smoking cessation products come with horrible side effects. Prescription pills like Chantix and Zyban can cause changes in behavior, suicidal thoughts and depression. Gum and Patches can cause nausea & irregular heartbeats.

It Takes Support

No one quits alone. It’s proven that most people who do quit try several times before they are successful. Those that are successful require support and a reliable system to replace the habit.

What we Know About Electronic Cigarettes

Safecig Electronic Cigarettes & Cigars provide adults with an alternative consumer experience not previously available in the marketplace.

Safecig reliably delivers a small quantity of nicotine without any of the harmful chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes. Safecig has only four ingredients: vaporizing fluid, food flavorings, water and nicotine. Safecig exclusively uses propylene glycol (PG) as the vaporizing agent in our products. PG is used in medical devices and has been in use since the 1950’s. PG is approved by the FDA for human use and studies show it to be non-carcinogenic.

We advise all of our customers to seek the advice of a medical professional regarding the health impacts of using any electronic cigarettes or Personal Electronic Vaporizing Devices. While Nicotine has been shown at certain doses to cause developmental harm, no scientific research has ever directly linked nicotine to lung or any other form of cancer. In fact, recently undertaken “proof of concept” studies show that nicotine may have beneficial effects similar to caffeine. Nicotine has been shown effective in the treatment of several psychological disorders and physical ailments. To confirm the potential benefits and harm of Nicotine use, we strongly urge you to consult with your doctor or medical professional.

Electronic Cigarettes can greatly reduce the environmental impact of traditional cigarettes. Electronic Cigarettes create no smoke, only water vapor, eliminating the harmful effects of second-hand smoke. Electronic Cigarettes are recyclable, eliminating some of the 1.4 trillion cigarette butts created every year. Electronic Cigarettes are not combustible, so there is no risk of catching or creating a fire. All in all, Electronic Cigarettes and Personal Electronic Vaporizing Devices are the newest and most reliable alternative product to tobacco cigarettes.
