E-cigarettes and the Media

People love e-cigarettes. Famous folks love e-cigarettes. Everywhere these days, electronic alternatives are being used proudly in public view! Some very famous celebrity types have been seen vaping over the years, and it has certainly solidified the movement.

If you thumb through a celebrity magazine, watch celeb news on TV, or happen upon any kind of “What’s Happening in Hollywood” type website, you will surely see e-cigarettes being flashed like the hottest accessories around.

The association is simple; Hollywood has always loved cigarettes; and now they love electronic cigarettes. The reasons they have fully embraced the vapor trend is because simply, it lets them have their cake and eat it too. Electronic cigs give all the pleasure, and a very similar experience as they are used without the tobacco, smoke, and tar. Anyone who has smoked knows the feeling well, and having something to take its place entirely is very much worth a chance in using. E-cigs have turned out to be so enjoyable, thousands upon thousands of smokers have switched, celebs included, and have not looked back!

Hollywood is a vain crowd, and so much of their professional lives comes down to their appearance, whether you agree with it or not. Cigarettes, being the toxin-filled, carcinogenic beauty-killers they are, do not help the cause by any means. From staining the teeth to staining the skin; tarnishing the complexion and removing the luster from your hair; and the most dreaded of all, contributing to fine lines and wrinkles; effects that are all less than desirable, and very dangerous when you’re being paid to look as good and as young as possible. Vapor, at the least, allows users to avoid the trouble and stress that come with smoke.

Among those who call electronic cigarettes their vice of choice are Leonardo DiCaprio, Katherine Heigl, JWOW, Trace Cyrus, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Jeremy Piven, Olivia Munn and her boyfriend Joel Kinnaman, Harrison Ford, Robert Pattinson, Dennis Quaid, Kate Moss, Jenny McCarthy, and Simon Cowell. That’s a lot of star power in one sentence; if thousands of normal people are in on it, and that much of Hollywood is flaunting their electronic smokes, it says a lot!

 

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?

 

Crazy Questions You’ll Get Asked About Vaping! (And How to Answer Them!)

Ah, you know how it goes when you blaze a trail; everyone’s going to have an opinion, they’re going to report about spin-stories they’ve heard on the evening news, and they’re going to ask some pretty wild questions. So when vaping, don’t be surprised if you get asked some crazy question! Here is a sample of a few of them, and how to answer!

How do you know what’s in those things?

Well, any good e-cigarette brand will let you know what’s in your e-cigarette. Most brands that care about their reputation will share what’s in them, and typically the ingredient list of cartridges is relatively quite small, especially compared to the THOUSANDS of ingredients and toxins found in traditional cigarettes.

How do you know it’s any different than smoking cigarettes?

The similarities are there; they contain nicotine, vapor, and the ability to use them like cigarettes, but that’s where they end. They contain no tobacco and nothing gets burned; the main components in smoking a cigarette, so that’s where the similarities end, making them very different.

How bad does it taste?

Taste is subjective; not everyone likes the same things. Part of smoking e-cigarettes is finding a brand that works for you. Often part of the figuring things out in the beginning will entail trying different e-cigarette flavors. Most people who stick with e-cigs find flavors they really enjoy, and do not use them if they taste bad!

Aren’t they more dangerous than regular cigarettes?

Testing is currently being done, but so far there has been no data to prove that e-cigarettes are any more dangerous than traditional cigarettes.

The bottom line is that you should not believe everything you hear! E-cigarettes have been used for around 5 years, and when used with common sense, they are enjoyable, satisfying, tobacco-free alternatives to traditional cigarettes!

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!

 

Vaping, It’s like Stress Free Smoking!

Smoking is often a habit people pick up to help deal with the many stresses life throws at us, however the habit itself can get quite stressful. There are endless bans against it, there are limits as to where you can smoke in most public places, many college campuses even prohibit them outright. Then there are the social implications, which may not be like the ones regarding public use, though annoying your friends and family members is never cool. An easy way around all of these obstacles is to ditch the smoke and go for vapor.

There are plenty of reasons vapor makes so much more sense, and most importantly is that they are much more people-friendly.

Odorless vapor means no one will be complaining about how bad it smells since you started fuming up the place. You can use them practically anywhere you want, without creating a stink (literally and figuratively)! Electronic cigarettes contain no tobacco, therefore there is no second hand smoke, ash, or tar. Tobacco is a plant, it gets dried and then placed into the papers for smoking. Smoke gets created because it’s a burning substance, and tobacco gives off tons of fumes, which do not smell good. People concerned about their health generally are aghast over second hand smoke, and want nothing to do with it. Some will go so far as to make a scene about your lack of consideration!

You don’t have to be self-conscious or concerned over things like ash trays and making sure your ash and butts end up in them. When you vape, all you need to do is take out your e-cigarette, puff on it till you’re satisfied, and then put it back where it belongs. When the e-cig cartridge finishes, you change it. Simple, stress free smoking!

Stress is the number one cause of all disease and illness, reduce some of it by eliminating tobacco. Bet you never thought of all the ways it was causing you stress! Keep calm and vape on, people!

Best Places to Vape!

Vaping is fun, and sometimes it can transform any dull, mundane activity to a much more enjoyable one. Here are some of the best places to vape, and why!

The Park

Hanging with the kids, looking for a reason to have some fun while you burn some energy, or just strolling for the pure pleasure of taking a walk, bring your e-cig! You’d do the same with your regular cigs, only now you won’t be littering, or exhaling second hand smoke in a place where it’s totally unwanted!

The Mall

You know you’ve always wanted to smoke as you amble down the walkways of your favorite indoor shopping arena, and now you can! Smoking conveniently, as you get your shopping fix has never been so nice!

In the Car

Road tripping, running errands, commuting, all the places you go in your car are much more enjoyable now that you can smoke without creating a biohazard with fumes, annoying those traveling with you, dropping ash everywhere, or possibly burning your lux leather seats or snazzy interior. Best bonus for road trips, because stopping the car every time you want to smoke gets really annoying and time consuming for everyone, smokers or nonsmokers. These are times when a car charger really comes in handy! Vapor, please!

Parties

Big groups of people are much better when smokers are vaping. It’s much more courteous, and just better all around because you never know what kind of action you’ll miss when you’re smoking outside, and things are getting fun inside.

Work

8-hour work days can get really mundane, seem really long (at times endless), and can offer more boredom than you’re wanting to ingest. Let yours go better with e-cigarettes. Sitting at your desk, doing the same thing over and over again as an ode to productivity can be so much more tolerable if you’re vaping. Chances are, your boss or company policy doesn’t permit nonstop smoke breaks, so vaping really lets you get it done pleasantly. Just make sure there isn’t a no-vapor policy!

 

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.

-Purchase from brands that offer sample packs of their cartridges. This is an excellent option for beginners, as it allows the user to try all options before settling on one. You might not like menthol, but tobacco may be perfect. You might think vanilla sounds intriguing but you decide you’re more into menthol, get the idea?

-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.

E-Cigarettes are getting more and more popular, and if you are one of the millions of smokers who are interested in switching over to the more modern smoking alternative, learn as much as you can! Optima offers incredible e-cigarette starter kits, and just about every accessory an e-smoker could want. So good luck in your search, and hopefully you’ll find the right e-cigs for you!

E-Cigarette Myths and Rumors: How to Tell the Truth from Fiction

You may hear a wide variety of things about electronic cigarettes, and they can run the gamut from realistic, to odd, to straight-up wacked, and those that are just plain untrue. How do you tell the difference? Research. And knowledge. And knowing how to distinguish whether someone knows what they are talking about, isn’t sure, or actually knows a thing or two! I guess the same rules could apply to life in general, however when it comes to electronic cigarettes, it really pays to read between the lines!

Some of the most common myths and rumors about e-cigs include the following:

Electronic cigarettes are just as bad as regular cigarettes.

Research is still in its infancy stages when it comes to electronic cigarettes, however there is no proof that they are just as bad, or better, for that matter than tobacco cigarettes.

They taste bad.

It depends on your personal taste really, but it’s not wise to assume all electronic cigarettes taste bad, or will taste bad. Many companies, ours included, offer many flavors options, and it’s a good idea to try them all. Who knows, you may find tobacco to be quite boring compared to vanilla or coffee!

They smell bad.

Generally, they have no smell! Nothing is being burned, and there is nothing but vapor that comes out of them.

Electronic cigarettes are not allowed in public.

While it isn’t true that you are free to use your e-cig anywhere you like in public and that no limitations exist, they are much easier to use in public because of the lack of smoke. People vape just about everywhere in public, so if you are unsure if you will able to, just check out the scene beforehand, ask questions, and be on the look out for other people vaping.

E-Cigs are more expensive.

Generally not true! It all depends on the company, but one of the most appealing aspects to e-cigs is that they are much more cost effective.

Most e-cigarette companies are bad.

Things vary by company. We pride ourselves in great customer service, excellent policies, innovative products that perform beautifully, and having a great selection.

E-Cigarettes don’t contain nicotine.

Not entirely accurate. You can purchase nicotine-free e-cigs, but most do contain some level of nicotine, which is what makes them legitimate alternatives.

E-Cigarettes do contain tobacco.

Electronic cigarettes are made to be alternatives, meaning they are alternatives to tobacco, so they don’t contain tobacco.

They break easily.

Low quality models, most likely, but not those designed and made with attention to detail such as ours can last a long time with plenty of use! And if yours breaks, contact us!

Doing your research about smokeless alternatives can go a really long way. Learn about them as much as possible, so you can make the best decisions. Know when statements are flat out wrong, and be able to discern when someone is blatantly saying misinformed things. And, if you have used electronic cigarettes, from Optima Cigs at least, you know where we stand when it comes to product quality… our name speaks for itself!
