  • Lizard Juice Saved My Life :: "My Doctor Recommended E-Cigs to Help me Quit"

    LJsavedmylifeBanner
    " I smoked a pack, sometimes more, of cigarettes a day for 37 years.  On May 13, 2014, I went to a new doctor who told me I needed to quit, as have other doctors in the past.  Told her I tried to quit many times over the years with patches, gum, and everything else I could think of, failed every time, and resigned myself to the fact I'd never be able to quit.  She recommended using e-cigs, telling me that several doctors and nurses at the hospital used them with great success.
    Luckily there is a Lizard Juice store nearby.  The woman there was very helpful, asked me several questions about my smoking habit, letting me try several different flavors, and recommended I start with 24 mg nicotine level.  As of today, I'm down to 6 mg. My next step is 3 mg (mixing 6 and 0) and my plan is to be at 0 mg by my first anniversary of being tobacco-free.  I'm proud of myself, my doctor is proud of me and says she doesn't care if I use e-cigs indefinitely since what's harmful in cigarettes is not the nicotine.    "

    LJsavedmylifeBanner

    "I've been a two pack a day smoker for 10 years now and a friend talked me into trying her lizard.  I couldn't believe how good it tasted and I loved how much vapor.  It felt just like taking a drag off of a cigarette.  I had to get one for myself and I've been so happy with my skinny lizard that I've quit smoking completely!  How exciting is that!  I just love my skinny lizard!!"

  • E-Cigs 101: Your Questions Answered (Part 1)

    What is an E-Cigarette?

    An e-cigarette is a device designed to help people quit smoking. It is also known as a liquid vaporizer. Studies have shown it is a healthier alternative to smoking AND it helps save hundreds of dollars a year!

    The act of vaping has also been picked up as a hobby by many young audiences who enjoy mechanical mods, smoke tricks, and cloud chasing (which we will discuss in advanced blogs). AnatomyofECigarette-01

    Why does Nicotine Level Matter?

    If you have too little, you'll want to pick up the cigarette again. If you're in doubt, Round UP! It is always better to get too much nicotine than be tempted to pick up a cigarette. Remember, The FDA has still not proven nicotine to be harmful by itself. What is harmful is the carcinogens and by-products produced from cigarettes and second-hand smoke. Nicotine is very comparable to caffeine with the effects it has on your body, with the exception that it is a very addictive substance.

    There are a ton of E-Cigarette companies out there, why should I go with Lizard Juice?

    Our motto is "Changing Lives One Person at a Time" and we try our best to run our company like that. Whether it's our own employees, or someone walking into one of our stores for the first time, we hope that someone leaves impacted from the simple decision of bettering themselves by switching to electronic cigarettes.

    Our stores are a clean and inviting environment for you to test out new products & juices. Or you can bring a few friends and chill in our lounge area! Our brand stays consistent across all of our locations. We always offer coupons & discounts to loyal customers. We hold contests monthly. We're coming out with new juices often. We're always on the hunt for the best technology and we provide same-day shipping on all orders! If there isn't a LizardJuice location near you, you can order from us online or open your own store! eastbaylizardjuice-25WEB

    Questions From FB Fans: Q: "I heard that there is some thing in the juice that helps clean out your lungs. Is that true?" - Christy P.

    A: There are 5 basic ingredients in our juices: Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Natural Flavoring, Nicotine, and Water.  None of those have been proven to clean out your lungs, though Propylene Glycol is a common ingredient found in asthma inhaler.

    Q: "Do you get more nicotine from e-vape then actual cigs been curious about this for a while? Thanks " Trish C.

    A: It is possible to get more nicotine from vaping then cigarettes because you're likely to vape more than smoke a cigarette (which is a good thing!). This is only applicable to those who have nicotine in their juices.  Remember though, the goal for most people is to eventually quit from nicotine as well.

    Q: My friend thinks she is gaining weight from your e-juices. Is it high in carbs?

    A: As stated before, we only have 5 ingredients in our juices. None of those have gluten, carbs, dairy, nuts, soy, rice, eggs, shellfish, sugar or anything else that could make you gain weight. Vaping has helped several people curb cravings but it shouldn't be the reason for packing on pounds.

  • Vaping Etiquette 101

    woman vaping inside bar. Vaping allowed

    With the rise in e-cigs and the hobby of vaping, you can't go far without seeing someone using one of these devices. I'm sure you've got many questions such as, "Is this legal? Can I vape here? Is inhaling someone else's smoke healthy?"

    That's why we have created VAPING ETIQUETTE 101

    1. Ask Permission

    With many large corporate stores & restaurants now having a no smoking policy, it's easy to want to pull out your e-cig. However, just because there is a no smoking policy doesn't mean that they allow vaping. If you are indoors, ask the manager or employee if it's okay to vape inside. By doing something as simple as this, and being respectful about it, you are paving the way for them making it a vape friendly zone!

    2. Educate 

    Most people who have never smoked will not understand e-cigarettes or the need to vape. They're going to want you to go outside with the smokers and do your thing.  If they ask any questions or are curious, don't be afraid to have a friendly conversation with them about vaping! This also means you should be prepared with some information to share with them!

    If you ever have questions about vaping, what is in our juices, the benefits to ecigs or more, feel free to ask us on our Facebook page or through our Live Chat on our website! 

    3. Be Respectful & Polite

    If you are vaping in an area where someone feels uncomfortable and they ask you to stop, remain calm. The last thing you want to do is pick a fight and make an awful stereotype for vapers.

    4. Don't cloud chase in public.

    Cloud chasing is huge in the vape community. It can also be annoying to people in public who don't understand it. Cloud chase in your own home, or in your local e-cig store that's okay with it. Places like the theaters, restaurants, and retail stores are definitely off-limits for this activity.

    We're glad that e-cigarettes are making a huge difference in the lives of many, but it will take time before it becomes more acceptable in more places. In the meantime, keep all these things in mind!

    Paula says:

    "I am thrilled to be able to let you folks know that because of your products, I celebrated an entire year of tobacco-free living on Dec. 1st 2014! I began smoking cigarettes at age 30 . . . dumb move, I know and had a pack-a-day Winston habit for the next 30 years. After Thanksgiving last year, a friend visited who was trying to quit using an e-cig and encouraged me to try. Lizard Juice was the first & only brand I have used and from 12/01/13 I haven't had a single cigarette!! It would be hard to say what flavor is my favorite, there are so many great ones. Mocha was my first and I love it to this day. I am 60 years old and have a young grandson that I adore. I want many more fun-filled years with him and smoking was stopping that future. I guess I'm actually saying you gave me my life back and for that, Lizard Juice people, my family & I are truly grateful. Thank you for your life-changing products"

    Kristie says:
    "I quit smoking using Lizard Juice E cigs 9 months ago! I am so glad I did. I had been smoking a pack a day for the better part of 20 years and this was the only thing that has worked for me. I have tried everything. I even got hypnosis! Nothing worked. Then a friend referred me to Lizard Juice. Best thing that's ever happened to me. My kids love it. No more smelly cigarette odor at all!  I tell all my friends to go check it out and at least give it a try. The amount of energy I have since I quit is amazing and I'm sure I've improved my health in many aspects since I made the switch. Thanks Lizard Juice. I'll always be a loyal lizard."

    Week Fourteen - Rosa E.

    Rosa says:
    "Hi, let me just say, that  as an EMT, I  carried with me an awful smell of cigarettes, everywhere my partner and I went. Disgusting!!! My breath, hair and uniforms, had that awful stale cigarette smell and I hated it. But, what could I do?

    I was addicted to cigarettes and all the cancer causing stuff in them. I hated myself for being so weak,so I would buy the patches and gum,and always failed miserably at quitting. Sad. Then one day,I found out about E-cigs and I read up on it and on 01/01/2014,I began to vape and since that day,I have never smoked again, and not only me,hubby quit cigarettes that same day, we're vapers. We're very proud to say,that we have turned quite a few people, to vaping,and all have quit cigs.

    E-Cigs are the best way to quit,no doubt about it. I can't see any other method for quitting,that's fast, and without the awful side effects. I smoked for almost 30 years and hubby much longer,and just the first time using E-cigs, We became former smokers, right there and then.

    Thank you, E-cigs. You gave us back our lives!!!!!

    You guys rock!!!!!"

     

    Rosa, That is amazing! I am so glad you embrace the lifestyle that is vaping because for every new vaper, that's one less smoker and one more person to help another smoker make the switch. I'm sure your partner appreciates it too. :) Keep on vaping on!

    Week Thirteen - Izzy C.

    Izzy says:
    "Hello,

    My name is Izzy Capps. I am submitting my story about quitting.

    I smoked cigarettes from the time I was about 14 until I was 33. I had tried unsuccessfully many many times to quit smoking. Patches. Gums. Different medications. Hypnosis. Cold turkey. NOTHING WORKED! I would up in the hospital in September of 2013 I'm the ICU for atrial fibrillation. A condition of the heart. I was there for 3 days. My doctors couldn't determine what the cause was. There are many different things that can cause episodes of AFIB.

    I smoked a pack of cigarettes daily at this point and sometimes more. When I got out of the hospital on 10/02/2103 I bought a vaporizer. I still smoked cigarettes for 1 more day. I haven't had a cigarette since 10/03/2013 and it's been a super easy ride because of switching to vaping. I don't have cravings for cigarettes. I don't get anxious anymore. I also haven't had anymore episodes of AFIB since then.

    I can breathe out of both sides of my nose. I don't wake up coughing and hacking up brown caca anymore. My lungs don't hurt when I breathe. I'm also able to actually sing in the car without my throat hurting. (Not that I'm any good)

    I know that without discovering vaporizers that I would still be smoking cigarettes and destroying my health. At this point I will be cigarette free for one year in exactly 2 months from today.

    That's my story. I hope you enjoy. Thank you.

    Izzy Capps"

     

    Izzy, that is a really awesome story. These small things like being able to breathe out of your nose, or sing in the car are actually not small at all. These are the type of things that really take away a big part of joy in a lot of peoples lives. I'm so happy for you and your family and I wish you the best in your continued success!

    Taylor says:
    "I watched my grandfather die from lung cancer from smoking and it was horribly slow and painful for him. I decided to quit smoking by trying out electronic cigarettes. 4 other brands all broke and I would be tempted to slip back into smoking. Once I got my lizard juice cigarette, it has lasted with out issues. Ive weaned myself slowly down the nicotine levels. I was at 6mg and started mixing it with 0mg and now im at 0mg for almost 2 weeks now and have never felt better.
