Just like Vape New Yorks first location in Jamaica, Queens, this new Manhattan location also lets smokers of legal smoking age try e-cigarettes in their store to see if they find it a viable alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. Employees at Vape New York custom tailor an e-cigarette kit to suit the customers personal needs based on what brand they smoke and how often they smoke. They also educate the customers on how to use the product properly which makes the switch to the electronic alternative much easier. We believe consumption of e-cigs will eclipse consumption of traditional cigs over the next decade as e-cig technology improves and awareness and trial continue to accelerate. With many cities and states proposing legislation intended to ban indoor use of e-cigarettes, many companies have hesitated to invest the capital needed to open an e-cigarette store in Manhattan. However, according to Bonnie Herzog, Wells Fargo Financial Analyst, We believe consumption of e-cigs will eclipse consumption of traditional cigs over the next decade as e-cig technology improves and awareness and trial continue to accelerate. The urgent need for a Manhattan location outweighed the risk involved in Vape New Yorks decision to invest in the new location.

The majority of the sample had started using the e-cigarette as an alternative to smoking, a smaller number used them to help them quit smoking. Three-quarters of the sample said that it had been several weeks to months since their last cigarette, 91% said that use of the e-cigarette had substantially decreased their craving for tobacco cigarettes, and 70% didnt have as much of an urge to smoke. These are positive results for the marketers of e-cigarettes, but the most important thing to remember is that this is a cross sectional sample that can only tell us the experiences of a specific population group people who were recruited from two e-cigarette brand websites. As they were already using e-cigarettes and chose to take part in the survey it is possible that this sample is over-representative of people who have found e-cigarettes to be beneficial. We do not know what the experiences and effectiveness would be in a wider sample of smokers from the general population who tried e-cigarettes. Overall, the study this website reports on the positive experiences of a large sample of users but no conclusions on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes in helping smokers to quit can be made from this study.
