  • 1. Freedom Cigarettes http://www.freedomcigarettes.comWill the banning ofelectric cigarettes atStandard Life create aprecedent for others?Electric cigarettes have been banned by oneof the biggest companies in ScotlandStandard Life as they apparently breachedtheir strict anti-smoking rules.The impact of Standard Life, one of Scotland’sbiggest financial firms, banning electriccigarettes could potentially be enormous andperhaps set a precedent. Electric cigarettes are well known as being a healthy substitute forsmoking cigarettes as they do not contain carcinogens; however theyre still being bannedby major businesses.Electric cigarettes contain a liquid called e juice that is vaporised whenever the electroniccigarette is smoked. Ecigs do not have any tobacco but they do contain nicotine whichincludes traces of tobacco, but they do not have any of the harmful carcinogens that tobaccocigarettes contain. The danger associated with smoking an electric cigarette has beencompared to drinking coffee.They do not have the carcinogens that cigarettes contain; electronic cigarettes are muchhealthier than cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes do on the other hand contain nicotine, thehabit forming drug in cigarettes. Nicotine is a stimulant however making electronic cigarettessimilar to a mug of coffee.For 20 years, Standard Life has been a non-smoking organisation and they even have anoccupational health department that will help workers stop smoking cigarettes. Standard Lifefeels that permitting personnel to smoke electric cigarettes would undermine their strict non-smoking guidelines and for that reason have prohibited e cigarettes in the workplace.Electric cigarettes are extremely popular with a lot of A-list celebrities such as Kate Mossand Britney Spears. E-cigarettes are quickly replacing tobacco with one e cig manufacturealone boasting over 20,000 sales in Scotland alone. A huge amount of this is caused by thehealth benefits however the price is a huge factor with an e-cigarette working outsignificantly cheaper.Freedom Cigarettes do not contain any tar or tobacco. Freedoms are not a medical device and Free Brands Limited makesno claims that our products help to quit smoking. Freedoms are intended for use by existing smokers aged 18 or over as a nalternative to tobacco cigarettes. They are not to be used by children, pregnant or breast feeding women or persons in illhealth. Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Freedoms. Freedoms contain nicotine which is an addictivedrug. If unsure of use, please consult your doctor.
  • 2. Freedom Cigarettes http://www.freedomcigarettes.comElectric cigarettes are available online and theyre starting to be stocked in chemists andeven supermarkets. As time passes, theyll be readily available just like cigarettes are today.Many people begin with a disposable e cigarette before getting a standard rechargeableelectric cigarette.The majority of Britain’s biggest companiesnevertheless permit electric cigarettes in theoffice including Scottish Widows, HBOS andLloyds. Even Edinburgh City Council permits staffto use electric cigarettes at the office.The government have recently setup agovernment body called ‘the nudge unit’ whichencourages individuals to switch from cigarettesto e cigarettes. The nudge unit realises that quitor die campaigns arent effective anymore and e-cigarettes are healthier than cigarettes. The moresmokers that switch, the less people that will diefrom tobacco related diseases.Potentially e-cigarettes could save millions of lives if tobacco smokers changed. This is theidea of the ‘nudge unit’ set up by the Conservative party and the banning of electriccigarettes at Standard Life may potentially harm this because it could set a precedent.Sadly lots of people do not understand the benefits of electric cigarettes and precisely whythey are a healthier substitute for normal cigarettes and do not emit any dangerouschemicals.Switch to electric cigarettes, a far healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes.Freedom Cigarettes do not contain any tar or tobacco.
