May 31st is World No Tobacco Day
Here at Kik we love getting behind a campaign or two. Just last month we were fully behind Vapril, and now in May we’re letting you all know about the World Health Organisation (WHO) campaign about the dangers of tobacco.
Today is the WHO’s World No Tobacco Day, and we’re donating today’s blog post to this very worthy cause.
What is WHO World No Tobacco Day?
Every year, the organisation raises awareness of the dangers caused by tobacco – and the list the effects they’ve listed isn’t pretty.
- 7 million people killed by smoking-related illnesses each year.
- $1.4 trillion per year on smoking-related healthcare costs
- Widespread deforestation to make way for tobacco production
- Huge amounts of toxic-run off from pesticides
Last year, the WHO painted Tobacco as a threat to development across the world, and they painted a pretty convincing picture.
This year’s World No Tobacco Day is focusing on what smoking does to your heart. Basically, nothing good.
But there’s an alternative. As we’ve mentioned before, 20,000 people quit smoking entirely last year by switching to vaping. So when it comes to turning one tobacco-free day into a tobacco-free life, we know a little bit about alternatives.
After all, our biggest selling eliquids tend to be tobacco flavours, and we take that as a ringing endorsement from our customers!
Tobacco Alternatives for Your Vape
As any smoker will tell you, not all tobacco tastes the same. Everyone has a preferred brand. It’s the same with our eliquids. After trying out a few of our tobacco flavours, you’re sure to find something you love.
So let’s give you a couple of options:
Firstly, there’s our Gold & Silver eliquids. The name made sense when we came up with it, back in the days before all cigarette cartons were that horrible muddy colour. If you’re hedging your bets about trying tobacco e liquids, this is a good place to start.
If you’re more of a roll your own smoker, our Virginian tobacco vape juice should ring a few bells. And fortunately, this liquid won’t contain any of the chemicals you’d find in an unfiltered, hand-rolled cigarette. With this, you’re golden.
Speaking of golden, we’ve also got a tobacco blend in the Kik Gold range. These 50/50 PG/VG liquids can be used in both vape pens and box mods, which means you can keep avoiding the tobacco regardless of the vape hardware you use.
But if you’ve got a box mod, it’s because you’re a cloud chaser. And if you’re a cloud chaser, there’s only one choice – Kik Cloud Supreme Tobacco. Not average tobacco. Not alright tobacco. Supreme Tobacco.
Of course, we’ve got even more tobacco eliquids in our shop, but these four are some of our favourites, and will help get you through a tobacco-free day with an authentic smoke-free tobacco taste.
Can We Make Every Day “No Tobacco Day?”
Swearing off tobacco for 24 hours is a good start, but the WHO want you to make every day “No Tobacco Day.” If you’re thinking of making the switch, you’ll find that investing in a Kik starter kit and a few bottles of tobacco liquid is cheaper than a week’s worth of cigarettes.
And in the words of Public Health England, “vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco.” [source]
That should give you something to think about today. It’ll take your mind off not smoking.
