Glory Vapes Offers Smoking Alternative
4/8/2013 (Updated 10:59:14 PM)ENDICOTT -- It's a growing trend and some say is a safer way to keep smoking while trying to kick the habit. It's called an e-cigarette,
and a new store is hoping to capitalize on the rising popularity.
Glory Vapes, located on Broad Street in Endicott, specializes in selling e-cigs opened Monday. E-Cigs do contain nicotine but not all the other harmful chemicals contained in regular cigarettes. Those selling the product say it can help people break the habit.
"You need to be ready. You need to know you want to quit, number one, and we're here to help you get through that process," said Brent Hannum, Co-Owner, Glory Vapes. "But, on top of that, the biggest thing you're going to have trouble with is that four week period of getting the chemicals out of your body. You're used to hundreds and hundreds of chemicals. Your body is so addicted to those that when you're quitting that's the hardest part.
According to a doctor at the Mayo Clinic, the FDA analyzed samples of two popular brands. It found variable amounts of nicotine and traces of toxic chemicals, including carcinogens. This prompted the FDA to issue a warning about potential health risks associated with electronic cigarettes.
The owners of Glory Vapes say they will give you a $10 discount on their starter kit if you throw away your pack of smokes.
