Vapourlites -- The Safer Way To Smoke?
I was a smoker for several years. I eventually gave it up due to an odd habit that I have of thinking with my fingers over my mouth and nose. The smell-rather like a flesh ashtray-was just nasty. That and my finger tips were yellow.
While smokers that I know relish this aroma, I just couldn't take it. I quit, went through some days of being a complete jerk due to nicotine withdrawal, then evened out.
To get an idea about how an electronic cigarette works, let's establish the benefits first-then get into the design aspects.
The benefits of an electronic cigarette over a tobacco filled standard cigarette are easy to see:
- No tar
- No tobacco
- No ash (hence no smoke)
- No odor
- No yellow stains on fingers
- No carbon monoxide emissions
Okay, now to me that's already enough info to turn me away from standard cigarettes. But get this-these things are 80% cheaper. And with ciggies being the price that they are today, that's a significant difference in cost.
There is also some discussion among fans of electronic cigarettes that they can even help you stop smoking. A recent study concluded that electornic cigarettes can be used like nicotine patches to help manage nicotine withdrawal.
There are two different types. One is simply a disposable unit. The other is rechargeable and made up of two parts: the cartomizer and the battery. Essentially the battery powers a tiny element in the cartomizer that vaporizes a small solution of nicotine. You simply inhale, just like you would with a normal cigarette. A LED light glows to show you that it's working, and when you exhale it isn't smoke-it's just odorless water vapor. There are multiple flavors available, including vanilla, cherry, and menthol.
The best way to approach this product (if you've not had it) is to get a starter kit.
It goes for (at the time of this writing) about $16.00 and includes the equivalent of 40 cigarettes and a USB charging cord.
And if that works for ya, then there's this:
This is the grand master of Vapourlite products. It consists of 10 packs of 5 cartomizers (which equals 2040 regular tobacco cigarettes), 2 batteries, and an USB charger.
Both of these items come with options of the strength of nicotine: 20mg, 16mg, 11mg, 6mg, and 0mg.
To me, this product is a no-brainer for smokers. And for those trying to stop smoking cigarettes. No more sitting in the glass cages at work or in airports. No more offending non-smokers with clouds of smelly exhales. It's cost-effective, comes in a variety of selections, and even has cool cases to carry them in the pocket of a jacket.

It's like the James Bond of cigarettes...
