It’s mid-December, and the holiday rush is in full swing. Christmas parties are filling up the weekends, gifts are piling up under the tree, the kitchen has turned into a cookie factory, and you can’t escape hearing Christmas music at least three times a day. Stress and the holiday season go together like milk and cookies, and for those who have recently kicked the habit of smoking, the stress is often amplified by not being able to reach for a cigarette during those high-stress times. With White Cloud products, it’s easy to fight the urge for a smoke by combatting stress with e-cigarettes instead!
Top Holiday Stressors for Ex-Smokers
We polled the team at White Cloud to find out what sorts of things happen during the holidays that make them feel like they’d want to run out the door to light up a cigarette, and what their “go-to” White Cloud product is for those instances where they feel a strong craving for a smoke.
From Thanksgiving all the way through to New Years Day, it seems that the number of cars on the roads magically quadruples. Whether you’re going down the road to grab a coffee, or crossing state lines to visit extended family, holiday traffic, backups, and accidents always end up extending a trip.
In the past, lighting up a cigarette as you sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic might have kept your road rage at bay, but as a new ex-smoker, there’s no better option than a Fling Wide Mini to get your “nic-fix” while behind the wheel.
There are two types of people in the world; those who can effortlessly wrap an item of any shape or size, and those who cannot. Most of us at White Cloud fall into the latter category, and recollect on the frustrations of gift-wrapping failures of the past. It’s not uncommon to lose your scissors and tape twenty different times, or run out of paper in the middle of wrapping a large gift. Don’t even get us started on making bows!
A White Cloud e-cigarette lanyard keeps your Cirrus+ClearDraw e-cig from getting lost in the mess of wrapping paper and ribbons. When frustration levels start rising, grab a few puffs of your favorite e-liquid…keep calm and Christmas on!
Company Christmas parties are supposed to be a time for everyone to take a break from the stresses of the daily grind. They’ll usually consist of some food, a couple adult beverages, and one or two co-workers who embarrass themselves after drinking too much.
As a former cigarette smoker, seeing familiar faces I used to share a smoke with in a different environment would immediately trigger a craving for a smoke. This holiday season, head out armed with a Cirrus Fob and your favorite e-liquids and show off a bit to your work pals, maybe they’ll be the next to kick the habit!
Holiday air travel immediately brings the scene from Home Alone to mind, where the entire McCallister family is running through the airport to catch their flight to France, only to forget Kevin at home. While we certainly hope you don’t forget a child at home before international travel, it’s no surprise that airports can be a hectic and stress-filled experience around the holidays.
There are only a handful of airports left in the United States that have smoking areas past the security checkpoint, so don’t forget to pack your e-cigarettes (in your carry-on, per TSA guidelines) and an extra pack of Invisivapor cartridges before venturing out to catch your flight!
