About The Puffin Hut

The Puffin Hut was founded by me, Helen Seward in 2012 when I made the switch from smoking to e-cigarettes. I am pleased to say I haven't smoked since!

I am absolutely convinced that E-Cigarettes are the way forward for smokers and am passionate about helping others break away from tobacco to experience an effective alternative to smoking. Here's my story…

“I was a 15-20 a day smoker, and had been for more years than I care to remember. I knew all the facts about how bad smoking was for me but continued to smoke. My feeble excuses for quitting cigarettes were that I enjoyed smoking and I didn’t want to gain weight. After a very sobering discussion with my dentist, I decided it was time to make some changes!  That day I purchased an E-Cigarette and I can honestly say I haven’t touched a traditional cigarette since! Initially I purchased a cigarette ‘look alike’ which wasn’t particularly successful as I had to recharge the battery every two hours and the cartridges were messy and didn’t taste very nice, but it was a start. I spent hours researching online to find a more suitable product. After purchasing several different kits and spending a lot of money, I finally ended up with a product that was right for me.

Vaping was like a dream come true for me. I didn’t gain weight, my skin was clearer and I lost my smokers cough. I was still able to enjoy the ‘smoking’ experience that I had previously got from smoking but with the added benefit of knowing that I wasn’t inhaling all the ‘nasties’ that I had for years.

The world of vaping is a vast one, and can be quite daunting if you are new to it. I wanted to pass on my experience and help others make the switch to E-Cigarettes without having to go through all the hassle I did! This is how The Puffin Hut came about.”
