Using the term “vaping”

I just got off the phone with someone from Chicago City Hall. I had called to discuss Chicago’s new e-cig ordinance on vaping inside. When I told the guy I worked for a vaping company, it took him a second to process, so I then said “e-cigarette company.” This garnered the response “oh vaaaping, ha ha”. Ok, that’s fine. I understand “vaping” isn’t a word the general public is familiar with. Now I don’t fault the gentleman working for City Hall at all. It’s not his job to know all the terminology of every industry.

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.

The Business Insider’s “9 e-cigarettiquette laws” article blows smoke

[The Business Insider]

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. When I click on the link I see some fun black and white sketches. This looks pretty cool. I can’t wait to see what useful tips this article will offer.

Cigar smokers, the future is here!

I had no idea what an electronic cigarette or e-cigar was until recently. I was as skeptical as the next guy. What intrigued me was how a company could replicate the experience of a cigar other than smoking the real thing. Our owner, Steve Milin, assured me it would be great, and it’s as close to the real thing with some positive exceptions. My clothes don’t stink, my car doesn’t stink, and best of all, I don’t have to pick a “battle” with my bride to smoke in the house when the weather sucks.

Vaping, Baseball and BS

I was lucky enough to get tickets to the Chicago Cubs game this week and as a die-hard fan, I was beyond excited. I went with a buddy from work and what could be better? We got to Wrigley Field, sat back and enjoyed the nice 70 degree weather as the sun went down. After ordering our first round of beers, we kicked back and watched as the game got started. Feeling so relaxed, I decided to pull out my vape. Now, I don’t know about you, but baseball, booze, and my vape is the best way to relax after work.
