Isn’t it interesting how smokers will continue to smoke despite the warnings from their doctors, friends and family members? I think we’ve all seen disgusting photos of what smoking does to our lungs and yet we continue to smoke. You want to quit, but the addiction is too strong.
When you see those disgusting photos, it really makes you want to quit right? You don’t want that diseased black lung at the museum to be yours. It’s for this reason that the FDA wants to start placing disgusting photos on packs of cigarettes.
Yup, right on the pack.
This means every time a smoker pulls out that pack of cigarettes to grab a smoke, they get to see an image of a body, post-autopsy. Or a message saying “Smoking can kill you.”
Now that the FDA has more power to regulate the marketing of the tobacco industry, these are just a few of the plans the FDA has in store for “big tobacco.”
I hope these ideas come to fruition and happen soon. The sooner we can get people to quit smoking, the better.
If you want an alternative to smoking, consider vaping. Buy an electronic cigarette from South Beach Smoke.
One of the reasons people are discouraged from smoking is because they are afraid of gaining weight. My mother was one of those people. On several occasions she had tried to quit and when she saw the weight start to add up, she immediately started smoking again.
Well there’s good news to anyone who’s had this problem before. Research has shown that the average amount of weight gain after quitting is only about 10 lbs.
Sure, when you reach that 10lb mark or maybe even 15 lbs, you start to worry. Don’t let that deter you. The weight gain will plateau and you’ll be a non-smoker soon.
What’s worse, gaining a few pounds, or adding 10 or more healthy years to your life? Buy an electronic cigarette from South Beach Smoke as an alternative to smoking.

Fathers Day is celebrated on different days around the world, but if you’re in the United States, it’s the third Sunday of June.
What better way to say I love you than by giving Dad an electronic cigarette or vaporizer?
Electronic cigarettes have not been proven to help people quit smoking, but they worked for me and thousands of other people around the world.
Did you know that quitting smoking can add 10 years to someone’s life? Quitting can quickly reduce blood pressure and increase lung capacity. The inflammation in the body caused by the poisons inhaled from cigarettes dissipate within only weeks of quitting.
Give your father an electronic cigarette as an alternative to smoking and show him how important it is to have him in your life.
South Beach Smoke has many great options for beginners. Or if you want something a little more advanced, check out Vapor Beast (I recommend a “Box Mod” for people new to vaping).
Get one for your Mother too, if she smokes, so that they can support each other and share in the experience together.

I always hear about those gift bags that celebrities receive when they go to awards shows, you know, the ones filled with iPads, Rolex watches and other things we all wish we could afford?
Well, South Beach Smoke has definitely proved that they are now a part of the elite, because at the recent MTV movie awards, their electronic cigarettes were packaged in the gift baskets with all of those other awesome gadgets.
The difference here is that South Beach Smoke’s electronic cigarettes are actually affordable to all of us. I own one and I’m far from rich.
I think this is a testament to the quality of the South Beach Smoke brand. They obviously feel that it’s worth putting into the hands of scrutinizing celebrities, and I agree with them.
If you haven’t already, order from South Beach Smoke now.
NOTE: This article has been updated with the court ruling.
The big tobacco companies are in trouble for not properly stating that cigarettes they produce that are labeled as “low tar,” “mild,” or “ultra light” aren’t actually healthier or less addictive than other cigarettes.
U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler is considering making these companies, the nation’s largest manufacturers of cigarettes, pay for a campaign designed to correct these statements; a campaign that will properly inform the public about the misleading labels that have been placed on cigarettes for decades.
The tobacco industry has recently argued that Judge Kessler doesn’t have jurisdiction based on a law from 2009 that gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulation over the industry, but a federal judge has rejected the argument.
A year later since this post was originally published, Judge Kessler made her final ruling and has ordered that tobacco companies publicly admit through advertisements that their companies have deceived consumers by making false claims regarding the dangers of cigarettes.
Several corrective statements have been ordered to be placed on cigarette labels, including:
- “Smoking is highly addictive”
- “Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco”
- “When you smoke, the nicotine actually changes the brain – that’s why quitting is so hard.”
