The SSR (Student Social Responsibility) Committee at SIMSREE had partnered with CPAA in organizing a social event, Sankalp earlier this year.

Smokefree electronic cigarettes supports the initiative undertaken by CPAA and SIMSEE students to eliminate smoking and encourages the use of e-cigarettes as support for smoking addicts. Smokefree Electronic Cigarettes serve the purpose of helping people quit smoking by standing as an alternative to regular tobacco cigarettes. Smokefree E-cigarettes have batteries instead of tobacco, cartridges instead of nicotine, water vapour instead of smoke! A Smokefree cigarette is made up 3 components. 1) The Cartridge. This contains the flavoured e-liquid inhaled during smoking. 2) The Atomizer. This changes the liquid from the cartridge into a vapour(smoke look alike) 3) The Battery, which is rechargable and has a micro processor which controls the atomizer. The tip is an LED light which blinks when the battery is low. Smokefree e cigarettes come with tobacco flavoured cartridges and infused flavoured cartridges, all of which can be customised with differing amounts of nicotine. One Cartridge for Rs 20 would last you the equivalent of one pack of cigarettes. E-cigs can be smoked legally in public places as they are Smokefree.
