Happy New Year! I know our New Year’s celebrations are long over but the celebrations have just begun in China. The start to the Chinese New Year was on February 10th this year. “This year?”, you may ask. Unlike our New Year, which is the same date for each calendar year, the Chinese New Year follows a lunisolar calendar where the full phases of the moon determine the months. The Chinese New Year begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice which, in 2013, was on February 10.
Be sure to always have a few cards with you!
A call to arms! Well, not really, but now that I have your attention, I would like to talk about being an advocate for electronic cigarettes and our culture. As vapers, we feel a special bond with others who carry an ecig. We come together to share stories and laughs, knowing the vaper across from you has been through many of the same struggles.

We are well into 2013 and many of us have made or are thinking about making the switch to vaping. What was it like for you when you first made the switch and what advice would you give? We asked this question to our Facebook community and received a ton of replies! Many vapers offered their advice to guide new vapers on their journey. Here are some of the replies:

Vaping veterans – do you remember when you first switched from smoking analogs to using electronic cigarettes? How did it feel? Some people feel sick and have flu-like symptoms for the first few weeks after making the switch. Both people who quit smoking tobacco cigarettes altogether and those who alternatively use e-cigs
can feel these symptoms. This is commonly called the “Smoker’s Flu”.
Happy new year! Earlier this month I wrote about how ecigs have helped me regain my confidence to commit to a resolution in 2013. We all know most resolutions last until February and then disappear for about 11 months. Well vapers I say we make a highly obtainable resolution – to keep vaping through the year!
