There are many theories about how the shisha pipe, or hookah, as some prefer to call it, originated was it India, Persia or Egypt, there are many claims, but we know it grew in popularity, there is no denying that it has. Any number of examples of traditional hookah can be seen, some made from clay, others from ornately carved metals or plastics, or as in the case of the Mirage 67cm pipe, high quality glass.

Don’t settle for anything less – Blizzard II Snuff Bullet

The taking of snuff really hit Britain in the 18th Century and the popularity of it grew, particularly in coal mining areas as taking anything such as matches or lighters to enjoy a cigarette, or pipe, were strictly forbidden. Snuff taking is now making a comeback; there are some very good reasons for this, primarily the restriction of smoking in enclosed public places, which can also sometimes include vaping. Many smokers also believe that it is a healthier option, nicotine can be rapidly absorbed into the system by taking snuff, and snuff is free of tar and harmful gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides reducing the risk of lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema, and possibly coronary heart disease as well. For many the downside of taking snuff is the method that has to be used, taking a pinch, placing it on the back of the hand are two examples, however there is a much simpler way now thanks to the Blizzard II snuff bullet.

This clever device allows you to take a it whenever you want, out and about, or sitting quietly at home, you use it in the same way as you would using an inhaler for a blocked nose! Simply unscrew the base of Blizzard, fill it with your favourite blend of snuff, and close it with the arrow pointing in a downward direction. When you need to take some snuff, hold the Blizzard down and flick some snuff into the compartment, place the tip into the nose and wow, a wonderful hit time and time again.

Tobacco pouches have been with us for a long time, not quite as long as tobacco itself, but discerning smokers knew that they enjoyed and derived greater pleasure more from new tobacco than they did from old stale products.

Government plans smoking rate reduction from 15.5% to 12% by end of 2022

In common with many things, smoking in public places depends largely upon your personal viewpoint, possibly also whether you are a smoker, or a non-smoker. From the viewpoint of non-smokers, since the ban on smoking in pubs was introduced ten years ago, pubs are now pleasant places to socialise. The younger generation, certainly those under thirty years of age, cannot understand  what English pubs and clubs were like before the law about smoke-free public places came into force ten years ago. Then going for a night out in a pub meant a dense fog, the smell of tobacco smoke on your clothes and hair after a night out, and the ashtrays loaded with cigarette butts.

Since that time, smoking amongst adults in the UK has shown a year on year decline, particularly amongst the young, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), in 2016, 15.8% of adults in the UK smoked, down from 17.2% in 2015, the figure for each country within the UK break down to 15.5% of adults currently smoke in England, rising to 18.1% in Northern Ireland, 17.7% in Scotland and 16.9% in Wales, with more people turning to e-cigarettes, with around 2.9 million, or 5.6% of adults.

However, the government plans to reduce smoking even further, the objective being to reduce the number of 15 year olds who regularly smoke from 8% to 3% or less, reduce smoking among adults in England from 15.5% to 12% or less, reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy from 10.5% to 6% or less. Thanks to the country’s efforts to decrease smoking, an example of which is endorsing vaping products for smoking cessation, the UK is boasting the second lowest smoking rates in Europe after Sweden, and it hopes to achieve these objectives by the end of 2022.

More should be done to promote vaping as one way to achieve that target the government has set itself, Public Health England has said that e-cigarettes are less damaging to health than smoking tobacco. According to Public Health England (PHE) e-cigarettes are about 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, they even went as far as to suggest that they could even be dispensed as a licensed medicine in an alternative to anti-smoking products such as patches.
