Before the 1940s, when you were probably not born yet, cigarettes were 'Just what the doctor ordered'. Until researchers found out that tobacco and the formation of malefic cancer were directly connected. It was a shock to most people. In 1964, when the industry was selling cigarettes like never before, doctors and researchers were trying to raise awareness for the population that cigarettes weren't as trendy as they thought. And it worked.

The cigarette consumption in 1964 was 4000 cigarettes per year, per capita in the US. With the consumers acknowledging that cigarettes were killing millions every year, and the non-smokers' rights movement beginning on the '70s, the tobacco consumption has dropped ever since.

Smoking data - all time data

It was now clear that it only takes one being aware of the risk to its health to make smokers stop with tobacco. Tobacco smoke has at least 70 chemicals that cause cancer, also known as carcinogens. Smoking is also the leading cause of preventable death. Worldwide, tobacco use causes more than 7 million deaths per year. If the smoking pattern worldwide doesn't change, more than 8 million people a year will die from diseases related to tobacco use by 2030.

In 2020, we lived a pandemic, for most of us, the first in our lifetime. And one of the prominent people who suffered from it were cigarette smokers. Coronavirus (COVID-19) attacks the lungs and the respiratory system as a whole, so tobacco smokers, were among the most affected groups, putting them into the vulnerable group. Now, in 2021, one thing is obvious: smoking tobacco doesn't do any good. It's time to STOP.

A great runaway from tobacco cigarettes is vaping, which has proven to help people stop smoking. At the same time, people who are trying to stop smoking can still satisfy their nicotine cravings, but without the cancerogenic substances found in tobacco.

When it comes to vape, our customers usually have two goals in mind:

Reduce their nicotine intake gradually or step away from the cigarettes and keep the nicotine intake as normal.

If you would like to...



Many people choose vaping so they can step away from cigarettes but still have their nicotine intake as nourmal. If that's what you're looking for, we strongly recommend the Apollo BREZ device. The Apollo BREZ is a small device, which fits in the palm of your hand. The BREZ pods come with a concentration of 20mg of nicotine per ml, which is the maximum allowed in the UK. This way, you will still get your nicotine but not through combustible cigarettes. What does that mean for you? No cigarettes, bad smell, yellow teeth no more. Only the excellent nicotine sensation!

This kit comes prepacked with the device + 5 flavoured pods inside, so you can choose which one is your favourite and go from there. They're available in Berry Blends, Menthol BREEZE, Tobacco, Melon and RY4 (tobacco caramel).



If you would like to stop smoking for good, the best option is going for a device where you can decrease your nicotine levels. The Apollo OHM GO KIT it's the best option for it! Our brand new device, launched in 2021, comes with an open tank, easy to fill with your best Apollo e-liquid. Our e-liquid range from 0mg to 18mg of nicotine strength.

Wait, you might be asking yourself now: if it's that easy, why people still smoke cigarettes in 2021, even if they know that it's not good for their health? Well, vaping can be a little complicated for those who never read or heard about it.
