Please let me vape on the job!

Nope, not smoke, it’s vapor!

Are you allowed to vape at work? If you can, good for you! That’s great that your employer is smart enough to realize that he/she’s saving time and money by allowing you to use your ecig. If you’re not as fortunate, I hope that you’ll be able to change your employer’s mind after giving him/her some info.

World Vaping Day 2013: A holiday for vapers

Happy World Vaping Day!

The second annual World Vaping Day is here! This worldwide holiday was created to raise awareness about the benefits of ecigs. This day is all about becoming an advocate for electronic cigarettes as a smoking alternative. You can be an advocate just by helping people understand what ecigs are and how they work. If you really want to make a difference, you can even contact your legislators and government agencies to urge them to write policies that favor vaporizers.

No smoke breaks, only Grand Theft Auto

It was 11:45 PM and was freezing. “What the hell am I doing out this late?” I asked myself. Oh yeah! The biggest gaming release of the year was last night! Finally, my wait was over for Grand Theft Auto V. But the wait last night was much longer than expected. Apparently, some other people heard of the biggest game of this century, and I was one of 400 people at my local GameStop. Great.

Cooler Talk: E-Cig Edition

As a vaper, I’ve been approached by many people who come from both sides of the “e-cig spectrum.” You know, the “naysayers” who think this is a fad or on the opposite end, people who praise me for making the switch. Some people just genuinely want to know what e-cigs are really all about. Well, I’m here to tell you MY version of what I say to anyone who asks me about my vape.

Ecigs aren’t dangerous, people are just negligent

Recently, many of you may have seen a new story out of Atlanta, GA, about a woman who was the unfortunate victim of an e-cigarette explosion. Luckily, she was not harmed and the only damage to her home was cosmetic. I read this story and I started to think, is the e-cigarette really to blame, or is negligence at hand? Don’t get me wrong, no one should feel like their life is in danger from vaping, but I’m sure we’re missing parts of this story.

This is a guest blog post by VaporVamp.

As the negative effects of smoking have become widely known, smokers have become more and more stigmatized and marginalized. With secondhand smoke being a real danger, smokers are forced outside or away from other people to smoke.  Some non-smoking people take this a step further and seem to actively despise smokers for their habit, not even considering that for most, it is an addiction formed early in life (as teens or, for some, even younger) when they may not have had the best of judgment.  Smoking is looked down upon as risky, dirty, selfish behavior, whether those labels are warranted or not.

The Growth of Ecigs: Bigger is Better

This is a guest blog post by Kevin Cass.

When I started vaping, my goal was to find something so similar to cigarettes that my habit would transfer easily from analogs to e-cigs. I wanted a cigarette that wasn’t a cigarette. So my first e-cigs were the same size and shape as analogs and even lit up at the end when I inhaled.
