How many tobacco cigarette smokers will switch to electronic cigarettes?

As we approach 2015 there will be many tobacco smokers around the UK looking to reduce their tobacco intake and also reduce their expenditure. While electronic cigarettes cannot legally be marketed as quit smoking aids there is no doubt that many people are looking to switch from tobacco cigarettes. The UK is now home to in excess of 2 million regular electronic cigarette users and we can only guess how many people will switch in the New Year.

Why are people switching?

There are many reasons why people are looking to switch from tobacco cigarettes to their electronic cigarette counterparts. These include: –

Cost savings

When you consider that a disposable electronic cigarette costs in the region of five pounds and is the equivalent of 20 tobacco cigarettes, this works out at that an equivalent price of 25p per tobacco cigarette. As we all know, a packet of 20 cigarettes in the UK can now cost upwards of eight pounds per packet which equates to 40p per cigarette. The situation is even more attractive when you bear in mind the cost of e liquid.

OK Electronic Cigarette StopTober Promotions


http://www.okcigs.co.uk/okcigs-stoptober-promotion-s/1856.htm

While the official launch of StopTober 2014 is still a few days away, here at OK Electronic Cigarettes we have released our StopTober promotions early due to ongoing demand from our customers. Our StopTober 2013 campaign was more successful than we could ever have imagined and the signs are that StopTober 2014 will be even better beating the figure of 160,000 UK tobacco cigarette smokers who reduced or eliminated tobacco from their lives.

So, what can you expect from the OK Electronic Cigarette StopTober promotion?

While many people are now sampling the array of eliquids available today there is still great demand for disposable electronic cigarettes and rechargeable electronic cigarettes. Therefore, we have attempted to bring together our core products offering three specific promotions during StopTober which include: –

Are you ready for StopTober 2014?

It is estimated that StopTober 2013 helped in excess of 160,000 people reduce their tobacco cigarette intake. This assistance took in an array of different products but one of the more prominent over the last few years has been electronic cigarettes. The fact that electronic cigarettes do not contain the 4000+ toxins which are present in the modern day tobacco cigarette obviously has health benefits which are being supported by an array of research into electronic cigarettes.

So, what is StopTober?

The StopTober campaign was created to encourage smokers to give up tobacco products for the month of October. Statistically if you're able to give up for a full month then you have a far greater chance of giving up tobacco cigarettes in the longer term. There are many websites covering the StopTober 2014 campaign giving you statistics and details of how tobacco smoke impacts your body and your health. Indeed it is estimated that electronic cigarettes could save up to 50,000 lives per year in the UK by reducing the tobacco cigarette intake of thousands of smokers.

Are politicians finally warming to electronic cigarettes?

Over the last couple of years the electronic cigarette industry and politicians have been at loggerheads with regards to the future potential for the industry. We have seen rumours, speculation and in some cases untruths circulated and published as "fact" without the necessary data to back these up. There has been speculation that governments around the world are priming the electronic cigarette industry as the next big tax income stream although to date no national government and no local government has been brave enough to do this.

Interestingly, the last few days have seen speculation that some politicians at least seem to be warming to electronic cigarettes. News that a legal challenge to the European Union Tobacco Products Directive was not challenged by the UK government, instead it was passed to the European Union Court of Justice, surprised many. So, what does this mean?

Legal challenge to EU Tobacco Products Directive

It is something which many in the electronic cigarette industry have been waiting some time for, a legal challenge to the ongoing EU Tobacco Products Directive. Those inside the industry have always believed it was just a matter of time before the European Union was taken to task over its heavy-handed and allegedly ill-advised Tobacco Products Directive. So where does this leave the European electronic cigarette industry and could this legal action really be successful?

Opening the floodgates

As we await further confirmation of the ongoing legal challenge the European Union will be running scared with a court of law likely to make public the facts, figures and professional advice used to create the EU Tobacco Products Directive. There have been rumours for some time that the original research note on which the advice was based was misconstrued with the author even stepping forward to suggest his words had been taken out of context and used to push forward with a predetermined policy.

Bulk-Buy Option on OK Eliquids

While many of you have already tried our award-winning OK Eliquid flavours we have had a number of requests for a bulk buy option for both traditional and fruit flavoured eliquids. We are pleased to announce that you are now able to buy the full range of OK Eliquid flavours in batches of five bottles at a discounted price and free of delivery charges. This will ensure that the next time you're OK Eliquid bottle runs dry you will have a replacement to hand!

We have also introduced a new pick and mix option whereby you can choose any five bottles from the full range of OK Eliquids. It seems that many of you would like to try different eliquid flavours and what better way than with the five bottle pick and mix option which is very simple to use. This option would also make a perfect gift for a friend or family member who uses eliquid or perhaps somebody who is looking to do so in the future.

When will the FDA confirm future electronic cigarette regulations?

Despite the fact that we are now more than six months over a two-year investigation into the electronic cigarette industry, there is still no definitive word when the FDA will introduce new regulations. Just a few weeks ago the administration announced a number of proposals which were very quickly put out to consultation (indeed the consultation period was extended) and we await further news of the future structure. At this moment in time it is unclear when the actual regulations themselves will be laid on the statute books but there could well be some hurdles to overcome.

It was interesting to see just last week that in excess of 20 US state attorney generals contacted the FDA demanding further restrictions and regulations on electronic cigarette sales. Indeed they also called for a ban on the 7000+ eliquid flavours now available despite the fact that these have proven to be very popular with former tobacco cigarette smokers who have switched to their electronic cigarette counterparts.

Tobacco bonds under pressure as electronic cigarette sales rise

There have been a number of reports this week regarding the $90 billion plus tobacco bond market which appears to be struggling in light of a decline in tobacco cigarette sales with more people now taking up electronic cigarettes. This is creating a very difficult situation for a variety of US state authorities who put together an agreement with large US tobacco companies in 1998 to pay annual compensation to cover additional healthcare costs.

These annual payments, which were agreed prior to the rise in electronic cigarette sales, are directly based upon tobacco cigarette sales in the US. As you can imagine, while sales of tobacco cigarettes have reduced by an average of 3.4% per annum since 2000, many experts believe this rate could increase to around 7% in the medium term. So where does this leave tobacco bonds?

Could the US ecig market be worth $4 billion a year?

Over the last few months has been intense speculation about the future of the US electronic cigarette market which is now estimated to be worth around $1.5 billion. While there are a number of regulatory changes on the horizon, with the FDA finally announcing its plans just a few weeks ago, there is a growing belief that significant short to medium-term growth could see electronic cigarette sales overtake their tobacco cigarette counterparts. So, how much could the US ecig market be worth in the short-term?

A research note published recently suggested that growth of 24.2% per annum is achievable between 2014 and 2018. When you bear in mind that the market is currently worth around $1.5 billion, this equates to market sales in excess of $4 billion per annum by the end of 2018.

Will changing politics at the European Parliament slow down electronic cigarette regulation?

Over the last few years there has been controversy and dismay at the way in which the European Parliament and the European Union seem to have come together to rush through an array of regulations covering electronic cigarettes and vaping devices. In many ways the ongoing campaign to overregulate electronic cigarettes perfectly reflects the power grab situation in the European Union and the fact that some of these decisions are made in an undemocratic manner.

The recent European elections have seemingly prompted a seachange in the European political arena with an array of fringe parties now holding the balance. There is a growing optimism that overregulation of industries such as electronic cigarettes could well slow in the short to medium term as current members of the European Parliament look to reconnect with the electorate and get them back onside.

Electronic cigarettes receive positive response from worldwide media

Over the last couple of years the electronic cigarette industry has experienced a major onslaught of negative comment, rumours and innuendo which presented a very mixed picture to the general public. There were rumours of tobacco cigarette companies flexing their muscles, politicians went on the offensive and regulators seemed determined to undermine the industry at every opportunity. However, since the European regulators and the FDA announced their plans for the future there has been a more positive response to the electronic cigarette industry across the worldwide media.

Those who've been following the industry will be well aware that nothing has really changed although the debates and arguments today for and against electronic cigarettes are more balanced than they ever have been. This is all that the industry has been requesting, a more balanced debate offering an unbiased opinion on the pros and cons of electronic cigarettes compared to their tobacco cigarette counterparts.

New research shows electronic cigarettes more effective than gum or patches

Despite the fact that many medical experts continue to play down the importance of electronic cigarettes a new report today published in the journal "Addiction" highlights a recent survey with very positive results for electronic cigarettes. In simple terms, the results of the survey indicate that electronic cigarettes improved the success rate of those looking to give up tobacco cigarettes by 60% when compared to traditional nicotine patches, gum and good old-fashioned willpower.

While we have seen a number of surveys over the last few months indicating the role that electronic cigarettes have to play for those giving up tobacco cigarettes, this is perhaps the largest survey to date taking in 5,863 smokers across England. The simple proviso for the survey was that participants attempted to give up smoking without the aid of prescription drugs or professional help.

Are you ready for No Smoking Day on 12 March?

As we approach official No Smoking Day on 12 March many people are already looking towards electronic cigarettes as a helpful means of reducing their tobacco cigarette intake. At this moment in time there are around 1.4 million regular electronic cigarette users in the UK and this figure is growing rapidly as electronic cigarettes become more popular.

You may also have noticed that the UK media gave significant coverage to former UK government advisor on drugs policy Professor David Nutt. He has come out in favour of electronic cigarettes as a means of reducing the impact which tobacco cigarettes have on the health of the nation. Indeed, his comments regarding electronic cigarettes potentially having the same impact as vaccinations certainly grabbed the headlines. When you bear in mind that Professor Nut had access to an array of data and feedback during his role with the UK government, his opinion on electronic cigarettes certainly carries great weight.

Will you be participating in No Smoking Day on 12 March? We will be announcing further details of our No Smoking Day promotion near the time – why not sign up to our Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up to date with our latest offers and promotions?
