Scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed this morning, an article my friend Keyzy posted caught my eye (“The 9 Laws Of E-Cigarettiquette: A Handy Guide For E-Cigarette Smokers”). “Ooh great”, I thought “now here’s something that looks useful.” And then I notice, even better it’s from The Business Insider – a credible source.

Ecigs aren’t dangerous, people are just negligent

[Image courtesy of]

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.

Tech Blog Gizmodo Reviews ECigs

The author Mario testing electronic cigarettes (view on Twitter

Have you read this article from Gizmodo about electronic cigarettes? ( It received a lot of comments from people on all ends of the spectrum. Some people disagreed with the author’s choice of brands to review, some people showed concern that ecigs aren’t any better than analogs, and others were upset that they didn’t mention of mods.

Stadium Smoking

Bars? No. Clubs? No. Blue Angel Diner? Also no. That’s how I felt when the smoking bans

Chicago Cubs

went into effect. At the time I was in the peak of my smoking career and now I had to watch where I smoke? Fine. I’ll be complacent but what I hated the most wasn’t the glares, or the signs, the measurements of 15 or 20 feet. No. It was sports.
