Freedom comes in different shapes and sizes. It can be a common feeling that unites a whole nation but it can also be a very personal way of seeing yourself and the world around you. Very often, we don’t even realize how free we are until we can compare it with the opposite. Whatever we are breaking free from, we will always remember the date of our liberation.
On July 4th, 1776, the first leaders of the United States of America approved the Declaration of Independence, initiating their struggle with the British Monarchy. Unfair economic and, social pressure, and lack of true liberty were among the concerns of the founding fathers. Taxes were high and colonists had no say in their governance; this combination created the volatile atmosphere that allowed revolt to ferment. The crown took the product of colonial efforts without giving much in return. British rule drained the life from the colonies.
This Fourth of July, why not declare your independence from tobacco products? In the same way that the British crown took its toll on the American colonists, big tobacco has its hands in your pocketbook. The thousands of dollars per year that you spend on cigarettes ought to belong to you, but exorbitant costs paired with severe addiction keep you from investing it in yourself and the people close to you. E-cigarettes can allow you to regain self-control and empowerment by giving you back your health and your hard-earned money. With what you could save by switching from ‘analog’ cigarettes, why not use the resources to do the things you love? Travel, buy gifts for your loved ones, take a class—invest in yourself and in your happiness instead of the habit that holds you back.
So what’s the hold-up? E-cigarettes are a great first step for many in the war to overcome their addiction to nicotine. Cartomizers are a unique opportunity to gradually lower the amount of nicotine consumed. Eventually, it’s possible to ease off of the chemical entirely. As the sense of taste returns, e-cigarette vapers enjoy and appreciate the wide range of available flavors more and more. Why not fight for the liberation that comes with beating a mental and physical dependency? E-cigarettes are just the tool for the job. Choosing to leave tobacco products on a day like the Fourth will make the event even more meaningful. Imagine the Fourth one, two, or five years from now. Every year, when the nation celebrates its independence, you will be able to do the same.
For yourself or for someone you love, e-cigarettes will improve quality of life. Every puff on a traditional cigarette puts over four thousand chemicals into your body.Meanwhile, the number of ingredients in e-cigarette liquid can be counted on one hand. And of course, since e-cigs only produce water vapor, there isn’t even any risk of “second hand smoke”.
This means that when you’re celebrating the Fourth with your friends and family, e-cigarettes allow you to stay with the group. No more sitting across the lawn or out on the patio. You can even vape your e-cigarette while casually relaxing with your family during the fireworks show. There’s no need to worry about children, pets, the elderly, or people suffering from asthma being affected by your presence. No longer will you have to worry about being a burden or health risk to the people around you. Make the effort to enjoy this holiday completely and thoroughly and get ready to enjoy a new life of self-control and empowerment.
