The one question my friends often ask me is “Why do you smoke?” I never quite got the answer myself, but you know I smoke and it’s pretty fashionable. My favorite actor Al Pacino has been smoking cigarettes and cigars in almost all his movies. I enjoy a good smoke after a hectic day. But recently there have been so many researches and case studies to prove that Tobacco consumption and smoking of tobacco is the major cause for life threatening cancers like Lung Cancer, Oral cancer and many others.
The list of ill effects of tobacco is so huge that Wikipedia has a dedicated page for keeping track of all the diseases caused by tobacco. This information was too much for my mind to process, I knew that I was not smoking too many cigarettes and I was not a chain smoker. I have a pretty good diet and healthy routine every day, with morning and evening walks and a strong vegan diet. I knew I would not be one of those cancer patients.
But still my Doctor warned me.
I always had this belief that I could always quit smoking. But when I really tried to quit smoking it was a tough task. So I started searching for some alternatives, starting with the Nicotine gum, the nicotine patches and many other so called satisfying alternatives. I failed to get a taste to any of these alternatives, my body still craved a smoking hot cigarette.
The search for a good alternative continued until I was online one fateful day and stumbled upon a company called Vapourlites and their e-cig collection. The concept of e-cigarettes is simple, a normal cigarette contains more than 4000 chemical compounds out of which 69 are proved to cause cancer. And e-cigs doesn’t contain Tar, Carbon Monoxide, no ash and no bad breath. And the risk of diseases is far lesser than a traditional cigarette.
Welcome to the new Era of Smoking: Vaping.
E-Cigs like the eGo ecigaratte and VL Micro from Vapourlites don’t have smoke, it has vapor, which gives the actual taste and feel of a normal cigarette. The nicotine in e-cigarettes is extracted from the tobacco plant, it is separated from tar and other plant material that cause cancer when smoked.
E-cigarettes hold nicotine in liquid form, which gets heated into a vapor and released when a user sucks on the end. And the user then exhales vapor and not smoke, the vapor is almost odorless and doesn’t stay on cloths and on the smoker’s body.
VL eGo 650 Electronic Cigarette
The VL eGo 650 Electronic Cigarette from Vapourlites comes ‘…with a refillable tank holds up to 1.6ml of Vapourlites E Liquid, which is the equivalent of around 60 standard cigarettes. The CE4 also comes in a smoked glass effect along with our class leading Lithium 650mAh battery finished in matt black. This product also comes with its own USB charger. A fully charged 650mAh should last up to 6.5 hours.”
The look and feel of these eGo Electronic Cigarettes is just like a normal cigarettes. The kick or hit that you get after smoking a eGo is similar to a normal Cigarette and you wouldn’t miss holding a smoking hot cig in your hand as these cigs come with a LED light that glow when you suck it.
VL Micro: The World’s smallest disposable eCig
The VL Micro is termed as the world’s smallest e-cigarette, it is small, lightweight and feels almost like a regular small sized cigarette. It also comes in 2 different flavors Menthol and Tobacco. Each VL Micro is equivalent to approximately 15 regular cigarettes or 150 puffs. It is ready to use and there are no detachable parts in it. The VL Micro works in the same way as the VL eGo 650, but VL Micro is disposable and lasts until the battery lasts. The one thing that makes VL Micro stand apart from others is that it is disposable, no need to recharge, and no need of any chargers or USB cables. It’s a portable fits in your pocket, smoke as and when you need. For a regular smoker it may last for a week or more but if you smoke less then it will last much more than a week.
Now coming back to the question that my friends often ask me “Why do you smoke?” I still haven’t figured it out, but you know what? I stopped smoking regular cigarettes and started Vaping. And the best part is it is much safer and looks much cooler. Probably my favorite actor Al Pacino will someday start Vaping in his movie.
Until then, have a pleasant Vaping Experience.
