Oh, The Places You’ll Go… Enjoying Your E-Cigs in Public

Smokers know all about discrimination and not being able to enjoy their habit in the company of others. In the defense of nonsmokers, it is true that cigarettes are foul, they produce harmful smoke and expose others to a situation they may not be comfortable with, and at their least, they just smell bad. In recent years, cigarettes have become so taboo, and so restricted that there are not many places you really can smoker them without consequence. Almost always smokers are relegated to smoking outdoors, and often in designated areas. Smoking tobacco cigarettes is just not convenient anymore!

Having the ability to actually enjoy their smoking is one of the many reasons smokers love e-cigarettes so much. The lack of limitations, and the free range to vape at their heart’s content really accounts for so much freedom.

Imagine being able to smoke:

-At a restaurant, bar, or nightclub. Always on the go? Make sure you have an Optima Hard Pack Case to stay ready and organized.

-In your home, in your bed, on your couch, at the dinner table.

-When shopping.

-Using public transit; trains, buses, taxis are all fair game when smoking vapor.

-In the car. Can you imagine long drives, commutes, or rod trips without being able to smoke while you are bored and/ or stressed? Using smokeless e-cigs in the car is awesome because you won’t be making the car a disgusting smoke-filled vessel. Your upholstery won’t reek of smoke, and you won’t run the risk of burning anything. cigarette holes in your seats are never attractive!

-At your desk at work.

-In the break-room at your job.

-At family get togethers.

-At your smoke-free college campus.

-At the beach, park, or anywhere outdoors in nature where smoking would be unacceptable. Especially considering that littering outdoors is very much frowned upon.

-At the airport, as you wait for your flight to board. Especially nice when you have layovers, and delays. Heading outside to smoke is never enjoyable!

-Just about anywhere you feel like it! Very few places have rules on not allowing you to use e-cigarettes, but they are few and far in between. You can’t vape on an airplane due to strict government regulations, but otherwise vapor is not harmful, not offensive, and able to be used as you like!

 

E-Cigarette Sales Are Soaring

E-cig sales are soaring. Those e-cigarette starter kits  are working their magic on the masses! They have been for years, but they just keep on getting bigger. Why? Because, simply, they are everything most smokers have wanted for years. They’ve been an outlet for many looking for a way out of their tobacco habits but are not ready to quit the nicotine outright. They have been great for smokers who want more control of their nicotine usage, and want to be able to decrease their intake slowly, without sending their systems into shock like suddenly quitting cigarettes is known to do. And, simply, they offer freedom, convenience, and tremendous savings, where tobacco cigarettes are expensive, unhealthy, inconvenient, and generally just a pain to use in public.

Tobacco companies have surely taken notice, as they have seen considerable sales declines as e-cigs continue to draw in those who want more from their cigarettes, as well as those who just want something that is healthier and safer to use. Cigarette sales have been on the decline for the past decade regardless, dropping 27% from 2000 to 2011, due to a change in health trends and the widespread limitations that plague smokers who want to enjoy cigarettes in public.

Electronic cigarette sales, on the contrary, are way up. 2012 saw sales of $300 million, and are on course to hit $1 billion in the coming years, according to estimates from Goldman Sachs. So great are the sales of e-cigs, Wells Fargo’s tobacco analyst has projected them to surpass the sales of tobacco cigarettes in only a small matter of time. The rapid growth and having been so embraced by the masses, the sales category is being likend to those such as Greek yogurt and energy drinks.

Electronic cigs are the future of smoking, to be blunt. Tobacco has no place any more with smokers who know they have the option to have the same feeling, with the same nicotine, at a lesser cost with e-cigarettes. Tobacco companies would not be acquiring electronic cigarette companies and getting on the movement themselves if they couldn’t see it just as well. The allure of smokeless cigarettes is simple: all the positives, none of the negatives, and overall just a simpler way to smoke.
