With the passing of father’s day many of us would have struggled for ideas on what to buy. The next time you need to buy a gift, buy the gift of life. Men across the world are beginning to wake up to the positive alternatives to smoking tobacco through vaporized e-cigarettes. With reports stating that e-cigarettes are up to 95% healthier then tobacco based products, today is the perfect time to switch to this healthier alternate.

It is worth mentioning that suggesting that e-cigarettes are NOT healthy, they are however much healthier then smoking tobacco and can be considerably helpful in stopping or reducing tobacco smoking. Studies into the long term effects of e-cigarettes are yet to be discovered and this consequently prevents us from being as conclusive about the risks. Reports now state that vaping is much healthier than its alternative; tobacco which kills over 480,000 people each year in the U.S alone.

It is clear then that vaping is healthier then tobacco smoking, so you may ask, how am I going to persuade my Dad to quit after 40 years? Smokers who are actively trying to quit will likely buy an e-cigarette themselves without the need for someone to push a product on to them. If your Dad isn’t open to the idea, then buying an e-cigarette as a gift is the perfect nudge in the right direction.


The gift of an electronic cigarette shows your father that you care about him and his health. It also shows that you have concerns about his financial well-being as switching to e-cigarettes on average can save individuals $3975 per year. The first few days after buying the e-cigarette will likely see no action. The box will be gathering dust somewhere in the house. Importantly however, the psychological seeds of change have already been sowed. Smokes who are suspicious of e-cigarettes normally are more likely to try if the device is in the home rather than in the store. This hopefully can then trigger a reaction as your loved one may start slowly replacing one or two cigarettes a day. This is still solid progress which in turn will improve your father’s health in the long run.

The perfect gift is often something that your loved one needs but they wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves. For example; a C.D or a book that you know your loved one would enjoy, but wouldn’t buy themselves. The same can be applied to e-cigarettes, you know they need to change, they know they need to change, but they need a little push in order to get them there. So next time you need to buy your father a gift, give the gift of life and together we can reduce the risk of cancer.
