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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

So, I’ve been working for Vapor4Life for a little over two years now, and I’ve come a very long way from when I started. A few days ago, I was thinking about my journey and how much I owe my life to Vapor4Life. For those of you who don’t know my story, I’ll give you a little insight.

I’ve been a secret prisoner of cigarettes for almost 15 years. I smoked the first thing in the morning. I would smoke any chance I could during the workday, even smoking at my desk since I work from home. Sometimes, I would wake up in the middle of the night and smoke. I always had to make sure I had enough cigarettes and lighters. Despite my dedication to smoking and my resistance to quit, I was constantly worried about the smell offending others (and I knew the health risks). I left my doors and windows open at home as often as possible. I bought about 25 different perfumes, all purse sized, so I could carry them with me and use them right before I met people. I had a whole routine of putting on hand cream and a dab of perfume and popping a breath mint before meeting friends for lunch or coffee. I didn’t want to be the “stinky smoker.”

Growing up in the heart of Texas in the 80′s and 90′s, cigarettes were everywhere: restaurants, public spaces, outside shops and malls. At every turn the smell incensed the air. Vending machines, easily accessible to kids fed our addictions at $1.50 per pack. At 14 I started smoking because it’s “what all the cool kids were doing.” I had my first cigarette on the drive home from a school event and remember the laughter as I choked on the first inhalation. Not wanting to be laughed at again, I bought a pack and practiced smoking every day after school before my parents got home. After the first few packs, cool was no longer a factor. I did it because I thought I just liked the way they tasted (in the same way an addict might claim they just like the smell of cocaine). And then…
