Smoking has been around for thousands of years. It’s served us well. But it’s a thing of the past.
Smoking bans have made it more difficult for smokers to enjoy their habit in comfort. Forced to go out into the cold. Forced to wait until they leave a restaurant before they enjoy that after dinner cigarette. Looked down upon for smoking around children. The list goes on. It’s clear that pop culture and modern society doesn’t want it anymore. It’s messy, it stinks and it’s bad for your health.
But there is a silver lining. Technology. The future of smoking is vaping.

It’s not a gimmick. Those fake cigarettes you’ve seen are not some inferior thing. They are the future of smoking. So for those that enjoy the relaxation and sensation of smoking, fear not. The future is colorful and bright.
The electronic cigarettes (aka personal vaporizers) are hardcore alternatives. They come in all different colors and sizes, all different strengths, styles and nearly every flavor under the sun from banana to tobacco to chicken kung pow.
The vapor community is strong. Thousands upon thousands of people switching to e-cigs and figuring out just want combination they like. Some people like a super mini because it looks like a real cigarette, others go for a big battery mod because they want a lot of vapor and a big hit.
Vaping has become a cottage industry for many Americans who are now building battery mods and selling American made e-liquid. Communities and local meets and vapefests are springing up all over the United States.
Vaping is better for you than smoking. You feel better. You get back your sense of smell, you get back energy and you don’t smell like smoke. You can vape in bars and restaurants and movie theaters. You can vape in the office (I do it every day) and nonsmokers don’t have anything to complain about.
Smoking is the past. Vaping is the future.
I’m telling you this because I was a smoker for nearly 16 years. A pack a day (or more) of full flavor and roll your own tobacco. As a result over the last couple of years when I got a cold it would quickly turn into a horrible case of bronchitis. I had to start using an inhaler.
Seriously, cigarettes are fucking dangerous. I’m only 31 and I’ve had these problems. Switching to vaping has probably saved my life. I feel a lot better now. I can breath better. I have more energy. I’m beginning to be able to smell things again. There is nothing wrong with getting your nicotine fix. But chose wisely how you get it. If you can’t quit smoking or don’t want to quit smoking because of the sensation of it, vaping is your best bet.
