Electronic Cigarettes: How To Avoid Negative Comments If You’re A Smoker
Anyone who smokes tobacco cigarettes has experienced “the look” and probably more than his or her share of negative comments from family members and even complete strangers, too. Smoking used to be glamorous, but now it’s frowned upon and even illegal in most public places. That’s why electronic cigarettes are such a great alternative. Whether a smoker tries the disposable electronic cigarettes or chooses to invest in the best electronic cigarettes available, she’ll have the perfect solution wherever she wants to “light up.” Of course there’s no flame involved, there’s no combustion at all, but there is a tiny light at the tip that lights up when the user draws air through the unit. And there’s water vapor that has the appearance of smoke, so users may still get “the look” from time to time, but they usually have no obligation to step outside while enjoying an electronic cigarette.
What else will be missing with electronic cigarettes?
Here’s the really good news for every electronic cigarette user and everyone else in the room – there’s no odor and there’s no second-hand smoke. Those are the two main things non-smokers complain about the most. Of course the complainers are thinking about their own comfort and well-being, so once they know it’s not a tobacco cigarette they are usually fascinated and pleasantly surprised. Electronic cigarettes do not create smoke or odor at all. They are perfect for social situations. You’ll create no smoke to offend others, and you’ll leave no musty, smoky, lingering odor. The pure water vapor produced by electronic cigarettes dissipates immediately into the air, leaving no scent at all, which means less odor than the average person wearing perfume.
Where can a person use electronic cigarettes?
Right now there are few limitations on the use of electronic cigarettes. Of course they are not for sale to minors, and use by minors is not encouraged, but that is the only unilateral restriction at this time. Unlike tobacco cigarettes they do not produce smoke, and therefore do not fall under the non-smoking ordinances and laws to which people are accustomed. This can cause some confusion in restaurants and other public places, but for the most part the confusion is easily handled when someone complains and then hears the good news about electronic cigarettes. When people become curious, “the look” is gone instantly. Their curiosity can be piqued even more by a description of the vast array of electronic cigarette liquid flavors available. Since the unit is creating vapor, the special liquid heated in the tiny vaporizer can be fruit, chocolate, or coffee flavored as well as the typical tobacco flavoring. No actual tobacco is used in the liquid at all, although various concentrations of nicotine are also available. Huge menus of flavorings can be found at shops that sell the equipment, and usually one or two flavor options such as menthol and apple come packed in electronic cigarette starter kits.

If you are wondering if e cigarettes were designed to help stop smoking, the simple answer is no.
The patent was neither applied for nor awarded as a stop smoking device. It was awarded to Hon Lik, a Chinese inventor for Ruyan Group for “a cigarette substitute, not a smoking cessation aid.” That was in 2004 and there have been many people since that time that would disagree with the purpose of e cigarettes in their own lives. The manner in which the general public places a product into use may differ dramatically from the intention of its inventor. So it’s fair to say that many tobacco smokers have reduced or completely stopped smoking tobacco as a result of e cigarette use, whether or not that was the original intention of the inventor.
E Cigarettes Flavor For Every taste
The utility value of e cigarettes is enhanced greatly by the simple fact that tobacco is not, of itself, a naturally delicious flavor. Tobacco is an acquired taste. However, the special flavored liquids developed for the tiny vaporizers in e cigarettes are drop-dead delicious. If you don’t like one taste, you will surely like another because there are literally thousands to choose from, including various fruits, coffee, chocolate, alcoholic beverages, perfumes, foods and even breath fresheners. You can even get creative and mix up your own vaporizer liquids for e cigarettes from recipes at home. You can include nicotine in varying strengths or you can, if you’re moving in the direction of stopping smoking, choose to gradually eliminate nicotine from your e cigarettes entirely.
E cigarette – A Viable Alternative
To the uninitiated, meaning non-smokers, the whole thing seems more like a fanciful hobby or novelty than a stop-smoking device. That is a perfectly legitimate viewpoint. But to a smoker, especially a smoker who is taking stock of his or her health and giving consideration to smoking alternatives, e cigarettes offer a viable option that’s fun and practical at the same time.

Have You Seen Someone Smoking An E cigarette
Many people are curious when they see someone using an e cigarette because it looks like a tobacco cigarette but it doesn’t actually create smoke. The appearance of smoke is created by a tiny vaporizer unit that contains a cartridge filled with e cigarette liquid, and when the liquid heats up it vaporizes into water-vapor that looks just like smoke.
E cigarette liquid contains nicotine and flavoring in a base that stabilizes the liquid to vaporize most efficiently.
It comes in pre-filled cartridges and it comes in bulk packs to refill cartridges at home. Some users enjoy mixing up their own e cigarette liquid recipes because they can create custom flavors and control nicotine content. In fact, nicotine can be eliminated from the liquid mixture entirely if a tobacco smoker is using an e cigarette to reduce or quit smoking. Nicotine-free e cigarette liquid mixtures are popular with non-smokers who are curious and just looking to have some fun at a party or a restaurant after dinner.

Electronic Cigarettes: Not Just For Cigarette Smokers Anymore
Perhaps you have seen electronic cigarettes in use, or perhaps not since they are still a novelty in the United States. But you have probably heard of the tobacco-free alternative to smoking that looks and feels like a real cigarette in your hand. Have you been wondering how the little electronic cigarettes actually operate?
What Does an Electronic Cigarettes Do?
Chinese inventor Hon Lik developed his product for the Ruyan Group, and his patent on electronic cigarettes describes this operation as follows: “Lip pressure sensed by the mouthpiece primes the electronic circuit. The user draws in diluting air, which after a momentary delay switches off the electric pump and heater after each puff. Nicotine is vaporized ultrasonically at high temperature (atomized) in a fine aerosol of non-toxic propylene glycol, which condenses at room temperature into a visible puff of mist.” This unique process is not called smoking, it’s called vaping because there is no smoke, there is only water vapor produced by electronic cigarettes in use.
Since we all know there’s nothing new under the sun, especially in China, let it be known that the engineering for Hon Lik’s innovative product is very similar to the way eerie smoke is created to enhance theatre stages and disco dance floors. Electronic cigarettes are tiny little mood makers that provide a personal experience for the user, perhaps a smoker who desires to reduce or stop smoking tobacco, or simply a pleasure-seeker looking for some fun. Electronic cigarettes can be used by anyone over the age of eighteen years.
Not A Cigarette Smoker?
And, there’s good news for cigar and pipe smokers now, too. Electronic cigars and pipes are available with the same technology and accompanying options. As with any other electronic device, they all come with chargers. Electronic cigarettes, cigars and pipes are all designed to recharge in automobiles, wall sockets and USB ports. International converters are available for travel. But recharging is not the most interesting of options.
What’s interesting is the flavor of the electronic cigarettes.
A mind-boggling array of flavored liquid for use in the tiny vaporizers in electronic cigarettes is available in local shops and also online. If you have been overwhelmed by the variety of flavored coffees on the market, prepare to be stunned by the variety of flavors available for electronic cigarettes. The list of flavor options is seemingly endless.

E cigarettes Are The Real Deal And Here To Stay!
When people first hear about them, they usually need to take a few minutes to fully grasp that an e cigarette doesn’t involve any combustion at all. Nothing is burning, there is simply a little battery operating a tiny vaporizer which is heating up the e cigarette liquid containing nicotine. This whole process is set in motion each time the user takes a drag.
It’s easy to see why tobacco smokers may want to try an e cigarette in order to avoid the toxins and carcinogens in tobacco smoke. And even more attractive, an e cigarette can utilize liquid that contains nicotine, or it can be formulated to contain less nicotine or no nicotine at all. That means a cigarette users can gradually reduce nicotine consumption and stop smoking.
You Can Smoke The E cigarette Pretty Much AnyWhere And Never Offend A Soul
While nicotine consumption is being reduced, the e cigarette is still providing the important tactile and social qualities that smokers enjoy so much. There is no doubt that an e cigarette offers smokers a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking.
