It's been an interesting week in the world of electronic cigarettes. This time last week we had the news that the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) now recommends that e-cigs are less harmful than tobacco (see a full article from The Telegraph here) and this week the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have announced that from 2016 they will be regulated as non-prescription medicines in an attempt to improve quality and ensure safety rather than seeking to ban the devices .
So, if we forget for a moment the possible theories concerning the involvement of Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, or the Eurocrats who want to stub out everybody's fun (as this that would be a blog all by itself!) the major piece of good news for UK vapers is that it seems the government and it's many subsidiary bodies are finally coming to their senses and realising that e-cigarettes are the safer alternative to smoking tobacco and should be positively encouraged rather than continually shunned and put down.
So in light of this new emerging acceptance, coupled with the fact that there are still over one fifth of British males who still smoke tobacco, we've had a brainwave…..
This Sunday is Father's Day, and if you're old man is still stuck sucking on the cancer sticks, what better present could you give him than a Vapourlites Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit. Its perfect! What better way to say "I love ya' Dad" than giving them a gift that will not only save them huge amounts of money, but also has the potential to keep them alive longer than if they keep on puffing away on their tobacco cigarettes!
Our starter kits come in both Tobacco and Menthol flavours and Nicotine strengths of 20mg, 16mg, 11mg, 6mg and 0mg so there really is the perfect entry point to vaping for any current smoker. If you are aiming to surprise your Dad with the present you'll need to sneak a stealthy look at their fag packet and see what nicotine strength and flavour they currently use – if you can then opt for a similar strength starter kit you'll make the transition much easier for them (rather then trying to drop them straight down to 0mg!).
The starter kits start from just £9.99 for a basic VL4 Tobacco kit (equivalent to 40 tobacco cigarettes) and range up to £75.99 for a VL7 Premium Mega Kit (equivalent to a whopping 2240 tobacco cigarettes!) with many options in the middle. Just choose the kit with the right accessories and the right amount of refills, order the kit and we'll get it sent straight out to you. If you order by 3pm today it will be with you in time for Sunday.
Remember, there's no tobacco, no tar, no carbon monoxide, and no reason not to switch from smoking to vaping. Show your Dad some love and help him make the change today.
