Sugar Spice and Every Cigs Nice

vaping vaping blogs vaping foums

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!

He’s vaping it up at the ball game and bar when a bouncer comes to check him out. After playing it real cool, the bouncer walks away without a hitch, but should we all be cautious of people who aren’t “in-the-know”? Jump on and join the discussion:

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! 


Comment below and tell me your story, did you switch to vaping from cigarettes?  If not, what got you into vaping?
