E-Cigs and Night Life

You love the nightlife; you love to boogie, but your cigarettes are not quite fitting into your need to get down.

Parties, the dating scene, having fun, and mingling amongst the masses can be tricky if you’re a smoker, as you most likely already know if nicotine is your thing. With all the bans and red tape, tobacco is not the most social of vices. However, with the good fortune of e-cigarettes, you have the option to light up without smoke whenever partying is on the agenda!

So to put it simply, if you want to smoke and still have a great time when you’re trying to cut loose, e-cigarettes are the way to go. If you do spend any amount of time out of the house in social settings, you’ve probably come across others smoking with electronic cigarettes. They’ve gotten so popular in the last couple years that it’s pretty hard to miss them, with so many smokers switching to the electronic side. And it really does make perfect sense.

Meeting people when you’re a smoker can be difficult. Nonsmokers are often pretty staunch, and many of them have no interest in dating smokers. And then there are the physical attributes of smokers that can be a turn off… you know, like the heavy smell, the stained teeth, the dingy skin and hair. Those who are not enveloped in a haze of smoke and covered in a slight film of tar are just more attractive. Luckily for vapers, e-cigarettes leave behind no tar, and no smoke lingering on everything.

If you’re vaping, nonsmokers would never know, nor would they have anything to complain about. Should you be in the position to be socializing together, they wouldn’t really be able to make snide comments regarding your tobacco scent or cancer-stick usage. Leveling the playing field, if you will.

Change your pace, have more fun, and get an e-cigarette starter kit if you want to have a good time. When you go out to hit the clubs and bars, you’re looking for fun; not to get reprimanded for breaking rules and annoying others because you’re invading their oxygen supply!

Mobile Vaping

E-cigs make the perfect travel partners. Whether it’s daily travel; to and from work, or travel of longer distances, they just work better when you need something versatile to get the job done.

There are lots of problems with smoke, and one of them is that it’s not a very people-friendly activity. Nonsmokers usually hate it, and there aren’t that many public places you are able to freely smoke in and feel totally welcome at the same time. When you’ve got a lot going on, electronic cigarettes make things so much easier!

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be really enjoyable and it takes off one level of stress. And even if that travel just involves a daily, one-hour commute to your work locale, and you get there via mass transit, being able to vape at your discretion amongst the masses is pretty darn wonderful.

With e-cigarette accessories, the availability of different chargers, and being able to use a single battery and cartridge for long stretches keeps it all simple. Accessories will help you keep it all together, and you can have your nicotine practically anytime you’d like.

In any instance of high mobility, here are some reasons why e-cigarettes are just better:

1 cartridge is equal to 1.5-2 cigarette packs; they go way farther, and don’t involve much waste. It’s more convenient than going through a single cigarette every time you smoke.

Batteries are sleek, slim, and fit practically everywhere; they take no effort to carry around and use.

Charging batteries is more convenient and more modern than working with fire, ash, and cigarette butts. Plus they eliminate the mess involved with burning things!

Accessories give you updated options; there’s nothing like wearing your e-cig around your neck on the lanyard for easy access!

If your travels have you going longer, farther distances, even still e-cigarettes are the better choice. One of the biggest factors to traveling with as few hang-ups as possible includes being able to swiftly move and go where you need to go; stopping to smoke and getting outdoors to a designated spot can just interrupt your flow in the worst way! E-cigarettes give you options than traditional cigarettes can’t. Why smoke when you can vape?

 

Cigarettes Are All the Same; E-Cigs Are Totally Different

Cigarettes and electronic cigarettes share only a handful of similarities. E-cigarettes are after all, alternatives to the conventional. They offer nicotine, a feeling of smoking, similar flavors as well as starkly different ones, and the ability to breathe in something that feels and looks like smoke (vapor). That’s about where the similarities end, though. Cigarettes are cut and dry; they contain chemical-laden filters and dried tobacco, also chemical-enriched, rolled into papers, and across all brands you get a similar format despite differences in strengths and taste. They are always the same, with no variation.

With e-cigs, you have the option of choosing so many different varieties, all to achieve that same smoke-like experience. You have the option to choose disposables, 2-piece models like our own that simulate the traditional cigarette in looks, you can purchase the sort that require you to fill liquids yourself, and you can even purchase styles you build yourself if you’re into that kind of thing. E-cigarette batteries come in so many shapes and sizes, you have the ability to use so many different chargers and accessories. The thing with e-cigs is that you have so much more ability to choose, rather than just settling for what a single company, or industry for that matter, hands you.

Optima Cigs e-cigarettes are known as 2-piece e-cigarettes, comprised of two basic parts. The reusable battery is the main component, and the cartridges are used and then disposed of. You are able to choose your nicotine strength, flavor, and which accessories you want to use to enhance your convenience.

If variety is the spice of life, e-cigarettes really let you live adventurously! They sure keep the smoking experience interesting, and they let you do it without tobacco. With e-cigs, “one size fits all” is completely, utterly irrelevant, because when you vape, it’s all about getting what you want!

Serious Reasons to Switch to E-Cigs

While there are many reasons to switch that are obvious; cost, convenience, and being more sanitary, here are some additional reasons that make switching a really smart choice.

Work Related

Smoking takes time out of your workday, and employers are far less tolerant of employees smoking on the clock more now than ever before in the past. Smoke also smells bad, and can offend nonsmokers in the workplace. Smokers also tend to be less healthy, and can cost employers more in terms of insurance and time missed due to illness. In short, it’s better for you job if you aren’t a tobacco smoker. While your boss may not be inclined to allow vaping at your desk, at least you won’t be offending anyone’s sense of smell with your smoky odor!

Better Lifestyle

While electronic cigarettes ar e not formally regulated by the government, nor have enough studies been done to officially declare them safer than tobacco cigarettes, they offer smokers the option to have nicotine without tobacco. Tobacco cigarettes are well known for having thousands of chemical toxins, not to mention tobacco itself is highly dangerous. E-cigarettes eliminate tobacco entirely, so you can avoid at least the pitfalls that come with burning and smoking tobacco.

Family

If you are a smoker, your family probably isn’t too pleased that you are. No one wants to see their loved ones doing things that could potentially harm them, and most smokers often get a lot of flack from their parents, siblings, children, grandparents, spouses and any other family members who want to see them ditch the cigarettes. Switching to vapor cigs often soothes the minds of many worried family members, and it should go as no surprise that many of them buy starter kits in hopes that the smokers they love will switch!

Electronic cigarettes make a lot of sense for smokers. They enable a more modern, convenient, cleanly, tobacco-free way to enjoy nicotine. They enable users to have more control of their smoking, with the benefit of many options that are not possible with traditional cigarettes. Make the switch for the better!

How To Choose an Electronic Cigarette

Looking for an e-cigarette brand that will please you? Here are some tips to make it go easy, and hopefully help you find exactly what you’re looking for! Happy vaping!

-Research, research, research! Can’t stress that enough. If you want things to go exactly to your plans, you have to learn about the products and the industry. There are so many different models and types of e-cigarettes, try to narrow it down to what style you think will work for you.

-Look into e-cigarette starter kits. They aren’t called “starter kits” without reason; they are meant for beginners especially, as they come with all the necessities. Selection also varies from brand to brand, so learn about the different products you may be interested in. Above all, if cost is one of your deciding factors, you can always go for the most basic kits. All you really need is an e-cig battery, a charger, and a cartridge, so see what lies ahead, and what interests you.

-Prices differ dramatically across brands, so this is another benefit of research. You want to make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re paying for your products, so don’t just settle for the first brand that you come across.

-Read reviews. There are lots of them, and seeing what people have to say about them is important. You will come across reviews from both consumers as well as e-cigarette experts, so find out what others are experiencing.

Freedom, Independence, and E-Cigarettes

July 4th means celebrating, having fun, and enjoying yourself to the fullest. This year, make sure you have your e-cigs ready to go, as nothing spoils a party more than traditional smoky cigarettes. We all know  how smoky it gets from fireworks anyway, so who really needs extra? When there is a perfectly cool, totally enjoyable smoke-free nicotine option available, tobacco seems lamer than ever!

Electronic cigarettes allow you to be so much more free and mobile. They give you all the ability to smoke and have your nicotine in just about any setting. You are limited only to your own convictions and when it comes to being around others, most have no issues with vapor. In the US, people are pretty keen on celebrating the 4th of July, and most do it in all varieties of raucous fashion. Neighborhood block parties, city-wide events, family barbeques, rollicking good times with friends; one way or another, it’s one of those few annual holidays that gets people together in epic fashion. And getting together with people means that you have to be wary of your smoke, which can be tricky if you aren’t smoking electronic cigs.

E-cigs are better in public and around others. It’s pretty wonderful when you don’t have to exit the building or scene to smoke. It’s also nice that you don’t have to deal with smoking bans. You won’t be littering, making anyone (including children) uncomfortable, and you simply have to just take your e-cig out, use it, and put it right back where you had it; no lighting, no dropping ash, and no worrying about burning anyone with the cherry. E-cig cartridges are easy to change, and accessories let you get the most out of your vaping.

When you bring e-cigarettes to a party, nonsmokers will appreciate your courtesy. Other smokers will be intrigued by your daring good taste, and everyone will be happy you aren’t smoking cigarettes. Fourth of July was meant to celebrate our nation’s independence, and to celebrate the awesome freedoms we have in “the land of the free.” Exercise your right to independence and freedom and go with what gives you more of both: electronic cigarettes!

Top 10 Reasons Your Life Will be Better for Switching to E-Cigarettes

Still deliberating on getting that e-cigarette starter kit? Still wondering if they’re worth the hype? Still not sure you’re ready to drop the cigarettes for good in favor of the more modern way to smoke? Here are the top 10 reasons you need to give e-cigs a try!

  1. Vapor is Cleaner. Cigarettes have the nasty tendency to stain anything they come into contact with, and this can mean your fingers, teeth, lips, and gums. Cigarette butts also create a trash issue, and as you smoke you will have to deal with ash. With e-cigs, you smoke them, and never have to worry about smoke, ash, or butts!
  2. Electronic cigarettes cost less. A lot less. If you were to compare the equivalent of cartridges to traditional packs of cigarettes, it would come out to less than $3 per pack, versus a minimum of $7-$10 per pack of cigarettes. The proof is in the numbers, and e-cigs are much more economical.
  3. They are way more convenient. So convenient in fact, we could do a whole post on that subject alone… There is no second hand smoke when you vape, and “second hand vapor” is not a threat to anyone.
  4. You have more options of flavor. Our e-cigs come in five different flavors, so you aren’t limited to just the boring basics of menthol and tobacco.
  5. You have the option to sign up for the Cartridge Replenishment Program, which saves you 20% on your cartridge refills, gets your e-cigs to you when you want them, and you are rewarded with the bonus of a lifetime warranty by being a member. Oh, and you set the number of cartridges you want and the recurrence of your choice. Did we mention it’s free?
  6. You may feel a lot better breathing in clean water vapor instead of all those chemicals.
  7. E-cigarettes don’t leave behind tar, or anything carcinogenic. It’s always nice knowing that when you smoke and get your nicotine you aren’t filling your lungs with tar, isn’t it?
  8. You can use them nearly anywhere. Totally different than tobacco, e-cigs are the best way to beat the smoking ban!
  9. No smoke means no second hand smoke. Vapor dissipates to nothing, and most public places have no problem with vapers.
  10. 10. You will have so much more control of your nicotine usage instead of being controlled by your habit. It’s all up to you, and not up to the length of your cigarette when you smoke e-cigarettes!

Electronic Cigarettes are Perfect for Vacation

Electronic cigarettes are perfect for vacations. Smoking around hotel pools, in crowded city tourist hot spots, and pretty much anywhere plenty of people are going to be comingling is rather difficult these days, as more people look down on smokers, and many places actually prohibit them. Vacations are meant to be savored, enjoyed, and a time when you can totally unwind, even if you are visiting a high-paced, metropolitan area and plan to do anything but kick back and relax, so why deal with smoking bans and having to get clearance if you just want some nicotine?

When traveling, e-cigarettes can be the perfect way to smoke. They simplify the process, and make it much more convenient to use. When smoking traditional cigarettes, you always run the risk of offending others, and being restricted to certain areas where smoking is allowed; with vapor, you don’t. With no smell, and no second hand smoke, you leave little for nonsmokers to take issue with. While e-cigs can be mistaken for tobacco cigs, a gentle explanation can go a long way, and most often will end in all parties being satisfied and comfortable! Besides, the last thing you want to be is that obnoxious tourist who is hell-bent on not taking “no” for an answer!

Vapor cigarettes are not just more convenient to travel with because they are smoke-free; they’re also pretty rad because they take very little effort to use. Once charged, e-cig batteries last a very long while (depending on your usage). When vaping, there is nothing to set up unless you need to change a cartridge, which doesn’t need to be done constantly. No lighters, no continuous trash, no dropping ash. You vape to your comfort level, as many or as few puffs as you need, and then you put it away. Simple, carefree smoking that will go a really long way on travels, and allow you to spend more time enjoying your vay-cay, than dealing with cigarettes!

Traveling can be highly stressful. Schedules need to be maintained on a very strict basis, and there is no room for error. For most smokers, stress is a key trigger for wanting nicotine, and being denied only adds to the problem! With electronic cigarettes, you can avoid all that; you whip out your e-cig and vape. You don’t have to worry about where you can and where you can’t smoke; you just enjoy to your heart’s content and enjoy the journey!
