So You Are a Smoker...

cigarettes to vaping vaping


You’re a smoker. You smoke. It’s nearly 2013, so we’re guessing you know about the horrible health risks and nasty hygiene habits that smoking entails, but you do it anyways. And not just because you’re addicted, no, because there are other ways to get nicotine. You could chew or dip or snort your nicotine fix, but you don’t. You smoke, because you’re a smoker, and because the act of smoking itself is like a small meditation, one that cannot be duplicated without the steady inhale-exhale, the graceful poise of cigarette between your fingers, the grateful release of smoke into the air. It’s an experience that most non-smokers can’t understand, an experience that—despite all the health hazards—you don’t want to give up.

But the risk factor is through the roof, and you are a rational human, so you try to quit. You know it’s time to stop, but you love smoking. Because you are a smoker. So why quite using gums or patches or lozenges? Are you an avid gum chewer? A fanatic sticker collector? A long-time candy consumer? No! Of course not! You. Are. A. Smoker. So quit like a smoker, with e-cigarettes. Quit using the only method that allows you to keep the sacred ritual of smoking, to take a quiet moment to fill your lungs and feel that nicotine buzz before sighing a great relief—of vapor. That’s right, vapor. No more scary, smelly smoke tearing at your lungs and terrorizing your loved ones with nasty stale odors. Our e-cigarettes use water vapor, nicotine, and an amazing array of customizable flavors to keep you happy, and just the way you are: a smoker, someone who wants nothing more than to take life in great gulps, not little bites or sticky patches. So breathe a sigh of relief, and let Highbrow Vapor help you quit in style, like a smoker.

The Geography of Bliss

cigarettes to vaping vaping Welcome to Highbrow Vapor

If you’ve read Eric Weiner’s account of the happiest countries on Earth, you were probably as surprised as I was to learn that one of the ten countries he visits has completely banned smoking. No smoking anywhere, anytime, anyhow, in Bhutan; the first country in the world to restrict smoking entirely. And although many of us have never heard of Bhutan or have the slightest idea where to find it on a map, the ever encroaching restrictions on smoking give us a better sense each day of what living in such a place is like ( If you are a smoker, it seems, the geography in which it is allowed is an ever-shrinking patch of earth. One pushed further and further into the shadowy recesses of human social activity. Want to smoke? Try that dark alley over there, pal.

But! The geography of vaping is a much more blissful geography.  Since e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, you can smoke them anywhere (legally) that traditional cigarettes are prohibited, including; bars, restaurants, your job, sporting events, cars, even airplanes. No more long smokeless flights to smokeless Bhutan. Now you can vape your way there, and then vape your way around one of the happiest countries on Earth, only you’ll be slightly happier than everyone else. And since e-cigarettes only release a harmless, odorless vapor that quickly disappears, nobody else’s happiness will be disturbed as you journey along in your vaping bliss. Happy vaping travels!

Did you switch from cigarettes to Vaping? What got you into Vaping?

cigarettes to vaping question vaping

I’m not going to get up and preach or anything like that.  If you smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes in addition to vaping, no problem.  But I’ve found that a lot of people have switched to vaping from smoking cigarettes .  If you did, what made you want to do it?

Was it:

  • Health concerns?
  • Smell?
  • Flavor?
  • Family?
  • Or something else?

If you’ve made the change, help a friend or family member by telling them your reasons and why you choose vaping over smoking.  You get all the nicotine (even customizing it to your liking), plus far more flavor and fun.  We even took the liberty of leaving out all of the nasty cigarette additives from our e-juices.

One of my favorite things about vaping, as you know for sure, is the flavor.  I’m all about the flavor and really pushing the extreme to get the most incredible flavor experience possible.  I mean, you’ll never find a cigarette that will give you the delight of Buttered Rum & then Some, Cheesecake Torte, or English Malt Toffee??  Haha, not how we make it!
