Smokefree Cigarettes- Smoke Where Real Cigs Are Banned

Smokefree cigarettes are a revolution for smokers; giving a healthier, cheaper alternative to traditional cigarettes and enabling them to smoke in places where real cigs are banned. The electronic cigarette consists of a battery (which looks like the long, white part of a cigarette), the atomiser (which is the middle part and contains the e cigarette cartridge) and the inhaler (which is the brown plastic mouthpiece and looks like the brown filter of a real cigarette). The electronic cigarette uses the small lithium battery to atomize the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid nicotine solution contained in the refill cartridge.

Tobacco cigarette prices are on the rise and many feel the crunch of this recession, it’s no wonder so many smokers are turning to smokefree cigarettes. A cost-effective option for many reasons and even though many opponents are trying to discredit its effectiveness, we will look at some facts and let you the smoker form your own opinion and decide on what is cheaper. It’s seems obvious that these electronic cigarettes are a much safer and healthier solution but it may premature to make it official.

The biggest problem with quitting smoking is that you don’t want to give up your cigarettes. What you really want is to have your cake and eat it too. You want to carry on lighting up a cigarette at your usual smoking times every day and you also want to quit smoking.

So is it Possible to Do Both?

How many times have you seen advice about giving up smoking that tells you to pick a date to quit smoking and stop? The idea is that you use the lead up time to this date to mentally prepare yourself to stop smoking for good.

But as with almost everyone who’s tried to quit smoking this way, all you’re really doing in the lead up time to your quitting date is thinking about how much you’re going to miss your cigarettes. And you’re just hoping against all hope that when you wake up on your quitting day, some miraculous event will have happened while you were sleeping that magically took away your desire to smoke.

Price will also factor into what constitutes the best smokefree cigarette for you. Internet retailers usually offer much better pricing than brick and mortar stores. In some storefront shops, you may pay well over $ 100 for a basic starter kit. Given the large number of retailers online, there’s no reason that you should pay this much. Between a good deal on your starter kit and being off of regular tobacco cigarettes, you can save a lot of money while enjoying a way to smoke that doesn’t pollute the air and that won’t offend those who hate tobacco.

Once you have determined the costs and have had the chance to compare the costs of each you will see that the cost of the smokefree cigs is yet another reason to make the switch. The cost will far outweigh traditional smoking methods and can be an effective way to ensure that you are able to reduce the risks that are also associated with traditional cigarette smoking.

EnviroForensics Partners with Nu Yale Cleaners to Remove Below-ground Contaminants

<img style="float:left;margin: 0 20px 10px 0" src="http://ecig-forum.com/wp-content/uploads/gI_86383_enviro_logo.png” />
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 09, 2015

Nu Yale Glacier Dry Cleaning has been in business since 1956. It is a family owned enterprise that has continued to thrive based on its quality and service and the ownership’s keen insight on serving the Jeffersonville, Indiana community. In its latest evolution as a business, the company took the lead on ensuring environmental stewardship within the industry. EnviroForensics, an Indiana-based environmental consulting firm is now working with the dry cleaning enterprise to remediate any possible PCE contamination in Nu Yale’s hometown of Jeffersonville to ensure its residents and the company can continue to thrive in the 21st Century.

“EnviroForensics started right away to collect and test soil samples from the ground under Nu Yale’s plant,” says Gary Maloney, Nu Yale’s president and co-owner.

Maloney and his brothers, Michael and Bill, have been involved with Nu Yale since the 1970s when they purchased the company from their uncle Wilbur Horlander, who started the family business in1956.

Nu Yale operates 11 locations, five in Indiana and six in Kentucky and is the only Kentuckiana dry cleaners listed in “America’s Best Cleaners.”

The perchloroethlene cleanup is being performed at the company’s original plant at 2940 Holmans Lane, which has housed a cleaning operation since the 1970‘s. The ground beneath the cleaning plant contains remnants of perchloroethlene (perc or PCE), a once-common dry cleaning solvent now classified as a pollutant. PCE can migrate through soil, ground water and (as vapor) air.

Nu Yale is no stranger to environmental stewardship. Nu Yale has evolved with the growing concerns for the environment and switched its dry cleaning solvent. Currently. Nu Yale utilizes the Glacier Dry Cleaning process developed by Solvair, which cleans with biodegradable cleaning solvents deemed environmentally friendly. The new system uses <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid carbon dioxide that is highly effective in removing stains. When pressure is reduced at the end of the cleaning cycle, carbon dioxide reverts back to gas and is vented out of the dry cleaning machine, leaving clothes clean and dry.

EnviroForensics expects the remediation of the PCE to be completed over the next few years.

“In the meantime, Nu Yale’s customers and neighbors can rest assured that the environment in that area of Jeffersonville is already safer,” says Brad Lewis, EnviroForensics’ senior scientist for the Nu Yale project.

Maloney says, “I wholeheartedly recommend EnviroForensics and the full-service approach that they use. They helped me find insurance and develop a sound strategy to clean up the PCE contamination beneath my business. They’ve been real good.”

EnviroForensics’ Lewis comments, “Finding pollution and minimizing its effects can take several years. During the summer of 2013, EnviroForensics completed an excavation of contaminated soil inside the Nu Yale site building. This excavation was complicated by the presence of load bearing building foundations, underground utilities and limited waste staging areas.”

He continues, “Following excavation, we installed groundwater monitoring wells to evaluate the soil removal’s effect on groundwater quality. The removal of soil continues to show a positive effect on groundwater contaminant concentrations. EnviroForensics continues to evaluate and implement cleanup actions at the Nu-Yale facility.”

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has inspected the site and approved EnviroForensics’ clean up and on-going water monitoring.

Roll N Smoke Electric Cigarette Machine – Five Easy Ways to Quit Smoking

Roll N Smoke Electric Cigarette Machine

It is estimated that about 1,192 people die from smoking related illness each day. That statistic is for the United States alone. With such a high mortality rate, it shouldn’t be a surprise that many people are looking for easy ways to quit smoking.

Though there are many methods available, such as nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and other products, many people report that these do not work and they always go back to cigarettes. So here are some methods that attack different aspects of life and should help the problem:

1. Hang out with Non Smoking Friends. Smoking is a very social activity, and most people find that they smoke a lot more when they have people to smoke with. If you make it a point to spend time with friends who don’t smoke (while you’re in the quitting process and while you’re building strength not to go back to the habit) you have a great chance of meeting success. Just be sure to explain to your other friends your reasons for disappearing. Roll N Smoke Electric Cigarette Machine

2. Stay away from activities that make you smoke. As previously mentioned, smoking is a social activity. This means that other social activities can increase your tendency to puff at a cigarette. Some common activities include drinking or going to bars or clubs and hanging out outdoors when at a party.

3. Have a 50 dollar jar. This is one of the best methods. Everytime you give in and have a cigarette, put 50 dollars away in a jar. (You can lessen the amount, as long as it’s amount that “hurts.”) At the end of the year, you will either have enough money to get yourself something really nice, or enough to get yourself a nice dinner. No matter what happens, the less money you have the better off you are. Remember, it’s one donation PER cigarette.

4. Find a healthy oral fix. Psychologists tell us that people smoke because of an oral fixation, which is why when people quit, they turn to other oral activities like eating. Find another thing to do with your spare time. Take up singing lessons or chew gum.

Of all the ways to quit smoking, the easiest thing to do is to quit cold turkey. I know that’s the hardest, right? Actually, if you wake up one day, torch all your cigarettes and follow the other steps previously discussed, you have a great shot of quitting and succeeding. Give it a try!

After years of trying, I finally Quit Smoking!

Tennessee-based Wine & Spirits Store Honored Amongst Nations Top Retailers

<img style="float:left;margin: 0 20px 10px 0" src="http://ecig-forum.com/wp-content/uploads/gI_84608_CoolBSpringsBWinesBExteriorBPhoto.png” />
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

James “Woody” Woodard, owner of Franklin-based Cool Springs Wines & Spirits, has been named the 2014 Retailer of the Year for Best Merchandising and was honored amongst Market Watch Magazine’s most successful national retailers during a ceremony at the St. Regis Hotel in New York earlier this year. The magazine, published by M. Shanken Communications (Wine Spectator, Cigar Aficionado, Whisky Advocate), also honored the market’s hottest brands and executives at the annual black-tie event.

Woodard, who accepted the award on behalf of his wife and co-owner Jackie, founded Cool Springs Wines & Spirits, located at 1935 Mallory Lane, in 1995. Woodard and the business, also honored in 2006, earned a 5-page feature in Market Watch Magazine.

“Many people get into this business because they have a love for wine,” Woodard says, “But my interest came from a belief that a wine and spirits store could be a great business”. While the climate has changed with the new Wine in Grocery stores law, we know our store is well-positioned for continued growth and to provide the personal customer service that grocery stores are not equipped to offer”.

Referencing the 2014 Tennessee legislation that allows grocery stores to begin offering wine in July 2016, Woodard said: “We honestly don’t expect our sales to go down when the new law takes effect. We saw it coming and are prepared.”

That preparation – along with substantial year-over-year average sales growth – caught the attention of Market Watch, a leading publication for market intelligence on spirits, wine and beer. Also notable is the store’s commitment to giving back to its community. In 2005, Cool Springs Wines & Spirits established the Franklin Wine Festival, an annual event held at the Factory in Franklin, that has raised more than $ 1.2 million for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. One of the largest wine events in the Southeast, the festival gained the sponsorship support of several mid-state companies, including Nissan.

While his gentle and amicable nature may suggest otherwise, Woodard is a self-professed aggressive businessman. After spending two decades as a senior manager and chief financial officer for Tom James, a men’s clothing company with headquarter in Williamson County, Woodard recalls a time when Mallory Lane was just a little pass-through road on his way to work. “Then one day I saw a sign that said ‘Coming Soon – Kroger.’ That was the spark.”

The Woodards first launched Cool Springs Wines & Spirits in a 6,750-square-foot space next to the Kroger grocery store located on Mallory Lane near Cool Springs Galleria. In 2000, they acquired a parcel of land across the street and then built the shopping center that their store and several other tenants occupy today, upping the store’s footprint to 21,000 square feet of combined retail and warehouse space.

Since becoming the first liquor retailer in the Cool Springs area nearly 20 years ago, the Woodards have maintained leadership in the market despite plenty of new competition. Even with five other liquor stores now operating within a 5-mile radius, Cool Springs Wines & Spirits continues to see steady growth, despite the economic challenges over the last two decades, which resulted in several other mom and pop shops closing their doors.

“We’ve entered a new era,” says Woodard in a very upbeat manner. “The new laws enable us to sell low-gravity beer and other items [at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits], so we are methodically merging our other store, Woody’s Smokes & Brews, to offer our customers an even better shopping experience.”

Woody’s Smokes & Brews, located in the Cool Springs Complex directly behind Cool Springs Wines & Spirits, was established shortly after the wine store. The intimate shop stocks a vast selection of cigars, tobacco, e-cigs, pipes and low-gravity beer. The largest customer draws are the outside patio, state-of-the-art walk-in humidor, and a nearby growler station, which will soon expand to 32 taps. At the time the store first opened, Tennessee law prohibited the sale of products with less than 6.2% alcohol content in a store licensed to sell wine and spirits. This exclusion prompted Woodard to open Woody’s in order to provide a more complete shopping experience. An additional perk was the upstairs smoking lounge and tasting room, which offered customers an opportunity to try products, which was also prohibited at a wine store.

“While other stores are just now beginning to experiment with ways to take advantage of the new law, we have 20-years of analytics and sales tracking to help forecast how this market will react to the sale of these items,” Woodard says.

Cool Springs Wines & Spirits is notably one of the stores that did not rush to add products in light of the new state legislation.

“We expanded our beer selection to include low-gravity offerings, however, we are committed to an entirely different strategy than most of our competitors, “ Woodard explains. “We never back down from a challenge. We think and buy big to better serve our customers. That’s how we guarantee lowest prices and how we are able to offer more SKUs (6,500 products) than anyone else in the area. We truly earned these Market Watch Leader accolades. “

In addition to their pricing and inventory strategies, the Woodards cited Cool Springs Wines & Spirits’ reputation for excellent customer service and an inviting atmosphere as reasons for their success.

“The layout of the store is well thought out,” says Jackie, who designed the store specifically with female customers in mind. Rather than high metal shelving found at many big box outlets of a similar size, their displays are on X-shaped custom-made wood racks they call “pods.” At the center of each pod is a replica of an old-fashioned streetlight with accompanying signage, such as Cabernet Circle or Chardonnay Way. From the high ceiling hangs an assortment of whimsical, hand-made dolls and creatures from Katherine’s Collection.

At the front, near the registers, shoppers will find a gated play area for children. The wide aisles are easy to navigate and the racks were purposely designed to be lower than eye level, enabling easy navigation, in addition to theft deterrence.

Another noteworthy component of the Woodards’ business strategy is their commitment to stocking high-end, highly rated, and very eclectic wines.

“Unlike many local stores, wine accounts for 60% of our sales. I can guarantee you that the majority of those revenues are not from wines that will be available in grocery stores,” said Woodard. “Our customers expect more than that. They count on our sales team to hand-sell the wines, especially as vintages change and new offerings come to market.”

Woodard credits his sales and purchasing staff for the store’s success. “Our employees really know this market, and they buy products that we know our customers will enjoy… at prices and an unequivocal selection that will keep them coming back.”

Woodard went on to say that General Manager Penny Rose Floyd, who has worked at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits for 15 years, “has the respect of every wholesaler in our market.”

“The best teams have skilled and talented people at all positions,” Woodard told Market Watch. “While I may be the one who stood on stage to accept this great Market Watch Leader honor, I did it on behalf of my wife, our incredible staff, our marketing agency, our suppliers and the wholesalers in this market. This recognition really puts Middle Tennessee on the map in our industry. I am very proud of how far we have come, and even more excited about where we are going.”
