As e-cig sales globally hit $200 million, with over $100 million of business in the U.S., e-cig consumer organizations encourage vapers to celebrate the product around the world.
Thousands of smokers and ex-smokers across the world will be celebrating World Vaping Day March 22 to celebrate the success of the electronic cigarette, and to encourage new smokers who can’t or don’t want to quit smoking to switch to the e-cigarette.
The day of celebration is organized by the World Vaping Day Project Group, comprising of following e-cigarette consumer associations: ECCA UK (UK), Stelda NL (Nederland), CASAA (USA), IGED (Deutschland), ATACA (Australia).
World Vaping day aims to celebrate the success of the electronic cigarette and to encourage new smokers who can’t or don’t want to quit smoking to switch to the e-cigarette.
On the World Vaping Day Website, printable information and flyers about vaping have been prepared, and vapers (people who use electronic cigarettes) are organizing events where smokers can try electronic cigarettes.
E-Cigarettes are devices that deliver nicotine without the tar and 5,300 other chemicals and carcinogens found in regular cigarettes. When a person inhales on an electronic cigarette, a liquid solution that can contain nicotine is heated producing a vapor; crucially, and in contrast to tobacco cigarettes, no combustion takes place. The result is a water-based mist, not smoke.
