Smokers who want to kick the tar and harmful chemicals in cigarettes without giving up the stress-relieving aspects of smoking now have an option. MyFreedomSmokes.com's electronic cigarettes offer a safe, smoke-free alternative without being harmful to the body or the budget.
Based out of Charlotte, NC, Freedom Smokes, Inc. is the brainchild of founder Chris Yelton. A smoker himself, Yelton set out in 2008 to create a cigarette alternative that would satisfy cravings with none of the harmful effects of the chemical-laden cigarettes that currently fill the market.
“It seemed too good to be true,” Yelton said about electronic cigarettes, “but after much research, I realized this was the answer to the smoking problem, and I wanted to share it with others struggling to find an alternative.”
Electronic Cigarettes do not burn in the way traditional cigarettes do, so they create no smoke, no smell and no fire hazard. Smokers tired of the social stigma attached to their habit are finding the electronic cigarette alternative preferable to being forced into designated smoking areas, which are usually outdoors with no protection from the weather.
Even dentists approve of e-cigs, as they are called among their users. The lack of tar means that these cigarette alternatives don't stain the teeth or cause other dental issues attributed to traditional smoke-based cigarettes. However, smokers who have tried them agree that they are just as satisfying as the alternative.
My Freedom Smokes simulate traditional cigarettes in every way. They are the same size and shape, satisfying the physical habit of smoking, but rather than smoke they release vaporized steam. Taking a drag off of one of these e-cigs feels and tastes exactly like smoking a traditional cigarette, except without the carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other carcinogens used in standard tobacco manufacturing.
Many smokers have had difficulty with other cessation methods such as nicotine patches or gum because even once the chemicals leave their systems, they still miss the ritual of smoking. Electronic cigarettes could be alternative that lets these smokers live longer, healthier lives.
In addition to being easier on the health, e-cigs are also easier on the budget than heavily taxed cigarettes. The company reports that smokers of e-cigs save up to seventy percent compared to the cost of their more dangerous counterparts. They also offer disposable models in both cigarette and cigar sizes, and Yelton plans to expand the brand to include a full slate of products to satisfy cigarette, cigar and pipe smokers.
The company also boasts a customer-centered business model with knowledgeable support and convenient features like same-day shipping and an accommodating return policy. They also offer web-friendly perks like coupons for followers of their social media feeds and a robust affiliate program for webmasters who want to spread the word about MyFreedomSmokes.com.
“When I tested my first electronic cigarette, I couldn’t believe it could satisfy my cravings as much as traditional smoking,” Yelton said. He hopes to spread the word of his products so that current smokers can regain their health without having to give up the ritual of smoking.
