Stick To Your Diet With Sweet E Cigs

Ah, the perilous New Year’s resolution…how simple and straightforward they seem, yet how brittle and easily broken! After all the holiday excess, you would think it would be easy to avoid sweets and treats in the New Year, but 2013 has just as many temptations as 2012, and that sugar rush craving is more urgent than ever as we say goodbye to holidays spent relaxing at home and hello (again) to the daily grind.


According to statisticbrain.com, losing weight is the top New Year’s resolution among the 45% of Americans who usually make that January first pledge. However, only 8% of those resolute people achieve their goal, with about a third falling off after the first month, and more than half throwing in the towel by the six-month mark!

However, all is not lost. There is still something to be said for a fresh start in the New Year. Despite the low achievement rate, it’s still true that people who explicitly make resolutions—writing them down, making a plan, and visualizing a desired result—are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t put forth the effort.

So why not resolve to indulge in a different way? Our cig juices are calorie free and full of natural flavor. Nothing says weight gain like an über rich and creamy cheesecake, but our delicious vapor version has a subtly sweet inhale and a tart cream cheese exhale. You can even combine it with one of our fruit flavors for a custom cheesecake treat. Tired of wheatgrass smoothies for breakfast? Why not start your day with Belgian Waffle cig juice? The fresh, slightly sweet taste and delicious aroma of cinnamon and warm maple will leave you feelings satisfied without the sugar rush. Or try our Heavenly Macaroon, a luscious blend of sweet coconut, rich chocolate and earthy almond.

Add to all this decadence the ease with which you’ll conquer your new workout regimen without all that smoke and tar in your lungs! Just a nicotine boost and sweet, sweet vapor. It’s a resolution that you’ll truly enjoy.


What You See Is What You Get

Cool and soothing menthol, spicy sweet clove, peppery and earthy cigars, or flue-cured aromatic pipe tobacco—the descriptions and flavors associated with smoking invoke a rich and luxurious world of sensory pleasure. But as we seek the pleasures of smooth toasted tobacco taste, we’re getting so much more than the product description might imply.

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, at least 43 of which are known carcinogens (cancer-causing compounds), along with a whopping 400 other toxins. Among these nasty and nefariously hidden ingredients are: tar, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, and arsenic. Even DDT, the infamous and notoriously devastating insecticide, finds its way into your cigarettes.
So while you enjoy the act of smoking and the sweet rush of nicotine, you’re also filling your lungs, body and soul with hosts of toxic chemicals and poisons. You’re getting ammonia with your aroma, monoxides with your menthol. and cyanide with your cloves. Talk about complex flavor palates!

Here at Highbrow Vapor, we stand behind our e-juices as pure, honest flavor blends—just natural flavors, extracts and oils, with water and the occasional touch of alcohol (for some of our boozier blends). The most sinister thing you’ll find in our cig juice is propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin, both of which are organic compounds. If we use any other potentially harmful additives, like clove or cinnamon bark oil—both of which pose potential allergy threats—we list it clear as the smoke-free skies on our ingredients page.
Total transparency. Because we believe that you should know exactly what you’re putting into your body, and we are committed to providing you with a pure, delicious smoking alternative. So dive in without fear or hesitation and experience the pleasure of toasted tobacco, or flavorful fruit, or whatever your heart desires, without any hidden agenda.


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.


Sugar Spice and Every Cigs Nice

Cold weather hits, and suddenly there’s a change in the air. More than the holiday music (or muzac, if you’re at the grocery store), more than Halloween then Thanksgiving then Christmas decorations everywhere you turn, suddenly with autumn and then winter comes the strange cultural clamoring for spice. We might as well dub October “National Pumpkin Spice Month” for all the flavored lattes and teas and cookies and cakes that appear—by popular demand—in cafes and restaurants, just as naturally and expectedly as the leaves changing colors on the trees.


We the people love our seasonal flavors, and who can blame us? The world grows steadily more chilly and grey, and we seek to warm ourselves from the inside out with sumptuous, spicy sweet sensory experiences. The taste and scent of warm, exotic flavors like cinnamon and hazelnut combined with the soothing sweet decadence of vanilla and cream is truly an experience worth savoring during these bleak wintry months.

E-cigarettes are certainly no exception to this simple sensual luxury. At Highbrow Vapor, we’ve custom-blended our world-class flavors to create one-of-a-kind cig juice experiences. What could be better on a rainy day than Chai Tea, with its bitter, earthy black tea flavors mellowed by vanilla and enlivened by cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg? Or there’s the Christmas party staple—Eggnog, packing a festive punch with the perfect blend of creaminess and spice. Or why not try the simple yet sensational Dark Chocolate Mint—deep, dark chocolate meets sultry crème de menthe, with just a touch of vanilla to finish. We can even make blend it to be a darker chocolate or a more invigorating mint sensation, just ask!


Have Your Cake And Smoke It Too

 

The drawbacks to smoking are well-known to everyone: harmful to your health, bad breath, unpleasant smelling clothes, the attendant social stigma. If you smoke, there is a steep trade off. You can either have your cake (not smoke, not smell, not be unhealthy) or you can eat it (enjoy smoking with its consequences), but you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Or can you?


E-cigarettes provide a way for you to enjoy the benefits of smoking without suffering any of its consequences. Although the experience of vaping is very close to that of traditional smoking (they look, feel and taste much like analog cigarettes), e-cigarettes work very differently. Instead of burning tobacco, e-cigarettes release a water vapor containing nicotine, propylene glycol, and, in the case of Highbrow Vapor, a flavor experience simply not possible with tobacco. All of which means that electronic cigarettes allow you to get your nicotine fix while avoiding all of the unhealthy agents found in traditional cigarettes, such as glue, tar, hydrocarbons and the literally hundreds of carcinogenic additives put into the tobacco. 


Whether you smoke and are looking for a healthier, odorless alternative to replace your current habit, or simply looking to add vaping to your nicotine experience, Highbrow Vapor is the place for you. At High Brow vapor our number one concern is that you have an incredible flavor experience while indulging in the benefits of smoking without suffering from its consequences. So, whether its our Buttered Rum and then Some, or our Cheesecake Torte, with e-juice from Highbrow Vapor, you can truly have your cake and smoke it, too!


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 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_smoking_bans). 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!
