Vape Shoreditch

I guess this is a little more unusual choice of blog post for me.

I know e-cigarettes have their controversies but I think that it can be a good aid to kick the smoking habit, plus it is cheaper than buying tobacco. Also, the UK government/NHS say it's around 95% less harmful.

I don't personally smoke (my dad smoked rollies for over forty years - I've seen firsthand what it can do to your health) but my boyfriend does.

Obviously I worry about the effect on his health so am keen for him to potentially give the e-cigarettes a try in an attempt to at least cut down (and hopefully quit!!)
One thing I do quite enjoy from time to time is shisha. I know that it has its own health risks so don't do it on a regular basis.

My only gripe I have with shisha is the set up and the fact that I have nearly set my carpet on fire in the process several times.

I was quite keen to give the e-cigarette a try myself. I'd bought an "e-shisha" pen from a dubious shop when I was in the States a couple of years ago and enjoyed the ease of use but worried somewhat about what I was actually inhaling!

This is when Vape Shoreditch comes into play. They approached me to ask if I'd like to try out their products so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

The ease of delivery from Vape Shoreditch was great. I like that, just like my contact lenses, the packaging fits through the letterbox which means no annoying trips to collect stuff from the post office!

I was sent the Shoreditch One style of e-cigarette. I think personally I prefer the slim Shoreditch Two style (I wish it came in black! Goff4lyf!) but I loved the finish on the style I was sent.
It's very sleek unlike some that I have seen with an almost snakeskin look texture. My boyfriend immediately liked it & was eyeing it up!
I like the idea of the counter on the e-cigarette style having a counter on it. I know that one thing people argue about with the e-cigs is a lot of the time people are actually smoking more than they would if they just smoked normal cigarettes as obviously when you smoke a cigarette it ends, so you know how many you've smoked as oppose to taking numerous drags on a never ending e-cig!
A little bit more detail about the liquids. Choosing them I felt like a kid in a sweet shop - almost quite literally (Gummy Bear, anyone?)! There are some really interesting & some quite unusual sounding flavours so I was very keen to give them a go.
I went with peppermint chocolate, peach and Parma violets. I chose the Parma violet flavour for my boyfriend as he's a big fan of them!
The peppermint chocolate flavour liquid was my favourite. Not too sickly (so no headachy feeling like you sometimes get from shisha) and the right about of mint. It was like vaporised after eight mint!

My boyfriend loved the Parma violet one. He said "it was really nice" so consider that a review...!

I’d love to see a grape flavour or cherry/cherry cola as they are both flavours I can’t get enough of.

It's pretty early days to see if it is going to help him to quit but he's been using it indoors in the evening rather than bobbing outside for a fag break which is good. Baby steps!

If you would like to try them out for yourself you can use the following exclusive code to get 3 flavours for 99p! This includes free first class postage so no hidden costs.

I definitely recommend you try the peppermint chocolate flavour!
