The fabulously talented & creative folks at BonBon Cupcakes sent me some microfiber leggings last week to try out. Before I could get the words out of my mouth, my four year old daughter was...
Citizen e-Cig Helps You Keep Your Resolution
Quitting smoking ranks among the top 10 new year’s resolutions made, with nearly 70 percent of all U.S. adult cigarette smokers wanting to quit completely (Centers for Disease Control). Almost all fail, as the American Cancer Society acknowledges. Even the patch and gum yield only a 15 percent success rate.
Why? Smoking is a complex social and sensory habit. Smoking cessation products betray smokers trying to quit because they don’t give them the full physical/oral fixation experience of smoking.
For years, my husband was a smoker and when I say years, I am talking around 20 years. My husband spent years in the restaurant industry and everyone smoked. He wanted to quit for years and every time he tried, he was not successful.
He tried the patch and was not successful. He tried the gum and every time he chewed it, he got the hiccups. Nothing worked until he tried a e-cig. To date, he has not smoked a cigarette in almost three years. E-cig's worked for him and they work for a lot of people.
Citizen is founded by people with 25+ yrs. experience in biomedical, cancer & disease industries — specifically to help people quit smoking (and reduce second-hand smoke). It’s not backed by a tobacco company — it’s an independent company whose investors include John Paul Dejoria (Patron & Paul Mitchell).
Citizen founder, Monica Ord, spent the majority of her career as a biomedical executive working with positive new treatments for cancer. Through clinical trials, she learned that even the best treatments only saved 20 percent of the cancer patients. So she founded Citizen Electronic Cigarette in 2014 to create a safer alternative for smokers. Her mission is to help wipe out second-hand smoke, as well as the toxins and chemical damage associated with traditional tobacco.
Citizen’s team has upwards of 25 years in the biomedical, cancer and disease industry, so they have a deep perspective on the importance of the task at hand.
Citizen rechargeable e-Cigs and eCigar give smokers the exact same experience of the real thing, except without the odorous, toxic smoke. Instead, they simulate cigarettes and cigars by producing a vapor resembling smoke. The taste is what smokers expect, even winning four national taste-test competitions. And this can make all the difference in helping smokers who want to quit.
Tobacco smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7,000 chemicals and chemical compounds. Citizen e-Cig products contain only four food-grade ingredients (each approved by the FDA). Those trying to kick the habit never again will have to question what they just inhaled.
Plus, Citizen e-Cig has a solution for nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Smokers can step down their nicotine intake from 24 to 18 to 0 milligrams.
The very real prospect of helping smokers quit was enough to prompt John Paul DeJoria, (Patrón Spirits Co. & Paul Mitchell) to invest in Ord’s venture and prompt Virgin Group magnate, Sir Richard Branson, to champion Ord’s venture as “ingenious and meaningful.”
Instead of the 7000+ chemicals in a cigarette, they contain only 4 FDA-approved, food-grade ingredients, sourced in the US (one of their biggest differentiators)
