I had not known anyone who used electronic cigarettes before I met my friend, Terry. She is a smoker of real cigarettes, but whenever we go out to dinner or to a casino she takes her e-cigarettes with her.
The first time I saw Terry smoking an e-cigarette, or “vaping”, I had no idea what was going on. I knew I did not smell any smoke, but since I had never seen one of those things before, I was curious about it.
Terry told me that there are many places that prohibit smoking in their businesses. If she goes out to eat, she must go outside the restaurant to have a cigarette after the meal. If it is cold outside, or windy, or raining, she has to endure the weather to enjoy her smoke. When she found out about the smokeless e-cigarettes, she decided to give them a try.
When we went to Memphis together, we were enjoying the music at a local restaurant/bar. Even though the doors and windows were open, smoking was not allowed inside the building. The people who smoked had to go outside on the sidewalk to have a cigarette. They could still hear the music, but not see the band. Terry had her e-cig with her, and was allowed to use it indoors at the bar because it was smokeless.
Again, when we went to the casino in Cherokee, North Carolina, smoking was not allowed inside the venue. The smoking area was a long way from the slot machines, so those who smoked had to talk a hike to get there. Terry, however, was able to use her e-cigarette in the lounge area near the slot machines because it did not produce smoke.
If you have never tried e cigs before, you can get information about them at 21stcenturysmoke.com. E cigs produce no smoke, but water vapor. They are a tar free way to satisfy your nicotine craving, and are cheaper than regular cigarettes. Using electronic cigarettes helps prevent the bad breathe, smelly clothing, and second hand smoke associated with smoking tobacco. Isn’t it time you gave them a try?
