Vaping Vs. Cigarettes

Blog By M.

Since vaping hit the market about a decade ago, it’s been hugely popular. Between the fact that there are literally a million flavors and the whispers that vaping is “healthier” than cigarettes, these little portable cloud machines have made quite an impact on people. Unfortunately, whether your inhaling smoke from burning plant matter or vapor, inhaling anything other than air in to your lungs can have ill side effects. So how does one choose between the lesser of two evils without just quitting all together (which can be extremely hard for some people)? This blog goes over some of the differences between vaping and cigarettes to help you make the best choice for yourself.

There are chemicals in both cigarettes and vape juice. Most people are well aware of the negative effects that smoking cigarettes has on the body. In fact, there are at least 20+ chemicals (out of the thousands that cigarettes contain) that have a strong connection to causing cancer, heart disease, and lung disease. The combustion of the tobacco leaves if what sets off this process, creating the smoke which is full of chemicals. Vaping doesn’t use combustion and studies show that the vapor produced contains significantly less chemicals than cigarettes. While cigarette smoke can contain things like arsenic and lead, vapor contains vegetable glycerol, nicotine, and propylene glycol. Anything else in the juice is usually related to flavoring and is typically food grade, meaning safe to consume. However, ingesting these chemicals is different than vaping them and the long term effects of vapor are not quite known yet.

According to statistics, there were 90,000 smoking materials fires in the US over the course of 2011. Of these 90,000 incidents, there were 540 deaths and 1,640 injuries. The cost of damages was also exponential, totaling out at a grand $621 million. While cigarette companies now make “fire safe” cigarettes and furniture is more fireproof than previous years, there are still plenty of cigarette-started fires that happen every day. One recently happening in Manchester, where someone fell asleep with a cigarette and burned half a building down. Vaping, in comparison, doesn’t have any risk of starting a fire if you drop it. However, when the process was still fairly new, there were many reports of exploding batteries. There is a website that lists all of the known battery explosions that have occurred since 2007. The website states that there have been 243 total reported explosions; 63 of which were during use, 84 during the charging process, 52 during storage or transport, and 44 involving spare batteries for various mods. There were 158 incidents that resulted in personal injuries. 

When it comes to cost, vaping is clearly the superior option however. While the initial machine might seem like a steep price to pay, research done by Tobacco Control in 2017 found that one pack of cigarettes costs roughly $13 in New York. The average smoker buys about five packs a week, which totals out at $65 a week or $260 a month. The yearly cost for this level of cigarette intake is $3120 OR MORE a year. This number doesn’t include any health related costs either. Vaping, on the other hand, might be a bit pricey to start, with a machine being around $50 and maybe $15 a week for a bottle of juice. That’s for a heavy user as well. But even so, this would only total out at a grand $720 a year. But be careful, studies also showed that since vaping is much more easily accessible, people tend to vape more than they smoked.

What’s the bottom line? It’s still tough to say for sure. A report published by the Public Health England said that electronic cigarettes are at least 95% safer than tobacco cigarettes and also recognizes e-cigarettes as a legitimate way to quit smoking. Even so, the American Heart Association published a 20 page statement in 2014, suggesting that e-cigarettes are less hazardous than tobacco and vaping can actually assist smokers in quitting. Their report said; “e-cigarettes either do not contain or have lower levels of several tobacco-derived harmful and potentially harmful constituents compared with cigarettes and smokeless tobacco… E-cigarettes present an opportunity for harm reduction if smokers use them as substitutes for cigarettes.”

The choice is yours, ultimately. But many people seem to agree that vaping is better for you than tobacco cigarettes. Smokers can look in to vaping as a way to quit smoking cigarettes completely. And while the long term effects of vaping aren’t completely known quite yet, it can be a great device to help you get away from cigarettes and quit smoking anything all together!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Self Exams

If you aren’t aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer effects about 1 in 8 US women. That means 12% of the women in the United States will develop a form of invasive breast cancer at some point in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed form of cancer, second to skin and as of March 2017, there were more than 3.1 million women in the United States with a history of breast cancer, whether they are currently in treatment or have finished. All in all, breast cancer is something that all women should be aware of and checking for on a monthly basis! Checking yourself for breast cancer is very easy but many women don’t take the time to do it, which unfortunately could help to detect breast cancer in earlier forms to possibly get treatment quicker.

A self exam will help you to notice lumps or thickenings in the breast. If you do notice anything out of the ordinary, it’s important to bring it to the attention of your doctor. They will be able to tell you if what you’ve found is something to worry about or just something normal in the body. Be sure to also let your doctor know that you’re doing self exams and ask them if they have any additional input on the topic to help you stay healthy!

To perform a self check exam, stand in front of a large mirror in a well lit room, undressed from the waist up. Leave your arms relaxed by yours sides and look for any changes in size, shape, or position. It’s important to note that most breasts are not identical so don’t worry if the two that you have don’t seem to be the same size! You’re looking for sudden changes or things that weren’t “like that” before. Also look for changes in the skin, suck as puckering, dimpling, discoloration, or sores. This is particularly important around the nipples.

Place your hands on your hips and firmly push down so that the chest muscles under your breast tense up. Look at the outer part of the breasts in the mirror and then bend forward. Roll your shoulders forward to tighten the muscles even more. Your breasts will fall forward and you should note any changes in shape or contour when they do this.

Clasping your hands behind your back, push your hands forward in the the small of your back. Turn from side to side to inspect the outer edges of the skin. Again, note any discoloration, lumps, or changes in shape. Don’t forget to check underneath the breasts; you may need to use a hand to lift them.

The last step in your self exam is to inspect the nipples. Be sure that they are not discharging any fluid. Taking a thumb and forefinger, squeeze the surrounding tissue around the nipple and pull outward. If there is any discharge when doing this, inform your doctor. Repeat this process on the other breast.

Here at MALS, we know what a toll breast cancer can take a person and those close to them. Throughout the course of October, we will be sharing all different kinds of blogs regarding breast cancer, products that are great for those in treatment, and other words of advice and information! If you have any additional questions, please stop by the shop or give us a call at (603)626-5956.

Rolling Paper Varieties

Rolling your own cigarettes is a time honored tradition. It allows you to really customize what you are smoking by choosing your own tobacco and paper to roll it in. There are a few different options for rolling papers that can affect taste, ease of rolling, and your health.

  • Cigarillo or Blunt Wraps: These types of papers are much thicker than any other because the paper is made with tobacco. They can be flavored, or unflavored. With these papers you are getting much more tobacco and by-products into your smoke which will affect the taste of whatever tobacco you choose to fill them with. We carry Juicy Jay and Zig-Zag brand blunt papers.
  • Wood pulp: Rolling papers that are made from wood pulp are popular because they are easy to find and roll with. They can come in flavored or unflavored varieties. They are thinner than blunt wraps but still have enough meat to roll a fatty. You can find Zig-Zag brand papers in our shop, made from wood pulp.
  • Hemp: Hemp rolling papers are made with industrial hemp. They have an earthier flavor and some say they are healthier to smoke with because there is very little by-product when burnt. We carry Raw brand products such as rolling papers, filters and cones. Juicy Jay brand rolling papers are also available in a variety of flavors.
  • Rice: Rice papers are extremely thin, making little to no ash when smoked. There is basically no flavor which allows the tobacco that you roll with to really shine. Fans of rice paper claim that it is one of the healthiest alternatives because it is so thin and very little is actually smoked. You can find Elements brand rice papers at Manchester Adult Life Styles.

Different rolling papers suit different needs and smoking preferences. Pick up a pack of each kind at Manchester Adult Life Styles and try them all out!

It’s NIP-Tober At MALS!

October is breast cancer awareness month! Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives? Although it is a widespread problem, it is also one of the easiest types of cancer to treat and cure. And yes, you read that right, breast cancer is becoming curable.

An important part of curing breast cancer is early detection. So giving your partner a bit of extra attention to their breasts during playtime can quite possibly save a life (not to mention turning them on like crazy). Here is a link to a tutorial on how to do a self-breast exam. It might be fun to spice it up and have your partner examine you! http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/testing/types/self_exam/bse_steps

We at Manchester Adult Life Styles want to celebrate the strides made against breast cancer by highlighting some of our nipple toys to make monthly breast exams a little hotter. The breasts and nipples are a very sensitive part of the body. If you enjoy tugging, flicking or sucking,(whether on yourself or your partner) the nipple toys we have, will take it to the next level. We stock a couple different kinds of toys, such as nipple clamps and nipple suckers.

Our nipple clamps:
Fetish Fantasy Ltd Feather Nipple Clamps: If you are new to nipple clamps, these might be a good first purchase. Tipped in smooth rubber, the precise, hardy metal grips are completely adjustable in terms of tension. Simply twist the screw to widen or narrow their grasp. Once in place, the silky black and white feathers float dazzlingly, effortlessly hypnotizing your playmate while awakening desire and increasing sensation.
Fetish Fantasy Heavyweight Nipple Clamps: If you know that you like to be treated a little rougher, these might be the clamps for you. For intense, constant nipple stimulation, the Heavyweight Nipple Clamps are a perfect choice. These soft rubber tipped treats feature completely adjustable tension, and a weight of about 2.6 oz (73.7g) for lots of tantalizing ‘pull’ on sensitive nipples.The total stretch of the attached silver chain is about 17 inches, allowing for perfect positioning and lots of movement.
Our nipple suckers:
Nipple Suction Bulb: Gently enhance sensation and make your nipple irresistibility firm with the Nipple Bulb. This little device applies light suction to draw blood naturally into the nipples for increased sensitivity and firmness. Just place the mouth of the bulb over a nipple and squeeze to activate the suction. To keep them hard and ready for action, 4 little O rings are included, which can be placed over the tip of the bulb and slipped off and over the nipple once you’re where you want to be.
Advanced Nipple Suckers in Black: Sucking thrillingly at any particularly sensitive bit of skin, California Exotic’s nipple play collection presents the Advanced Nipple Suckers, a duo designed for simple, quick attachment and blissfully stimulating results. Naturally drawing blood to the peaks of the breasts when attached, a deliciously devious interior suction effect perks up the nipples, inspiring nearly instantaneous arousal and vastly increasing sensitivity to touch, tugs, flicks and otherwise. To attach, simply position over the desired nipple (or other nerve-ending rich external sweet spot) and gently squeeze. Upon release, the suction activates, gently yet firmly drawing skin inward. In a safe and ultra sturdy phthalate-free PVC material, the Suckers require just a rinse in warm soapy water to see them squeaky clean and ready for enjoyment

We all love tatas, boobies, breasts, titties, “the girls”, or whatever you want to call them; but we all know that the person behind those highly erogenous zones is really what counts. Turn your partner on with Manchester Adult Lifestyle’s nipple toys and pay special attention to those lovely bits, it just might save your lover’s life. As always, be sexy and be safe; Happy NIPtober!
