Patience is a Virtue. It’s Also Hard to Come by…

Here we are vapers. It’s the week of Thanksgiving and I have a tidbit of bad news. Hopefully, this doesn’t impact many of you, but just in case it does, we wanted to make sure everyone was aware that the USPS Arizona office is having shipping delays… again.

Change

“Don’t Vape Your Health Away”
“The fading vape culture”
“Smoke Screen”
“E-cigarettes with more nicotine may make teens vape more”
“Vaping controversy still hazy”
“School closes bathrooms to combat vaping”

The aforementioned were just some of the headlines trending online today. Article after article of the same stagnant rhetoric disseminated to the masses in order to maintain fear and abate change. While reading, I realized that each author wrote in a way that highlighted the perceived ills of vaping, while completely ignoring the scientific facts.

Stoptober. Should The Effort be Year-Long?

Ever since 2012, the U.K. has held a smoking cessation crusade during the month of October. Appropriately, they refer to it as, “Stoptober.” This year, the organizers of the campaign included electronic cigarettes as part of their advertisements and promotions, for the very first time. This comes with what we had written about a couple months back – the U.K. has released official statements recommending vaping as an alternative to smoking. More about that here.

The ARMAGEDDON could very well be upon us!

The last great battle between vape shops and big tobacco, or what I like to refer to as the battle of “good versus evil” may not have begun outright just yet, but a very subtle disturbance in the water tells us that there is some major churning happening beneath the surface… a lot more on this later.

What’s UNDER Your Bottle?

… A brief addendum to “What’s in Your Bottle?”

In light of some recent confusion surrounding a blog post detailing the heavy metal antimony, which is used in the production of Polyethylene terephthalate, often abbreviated as PET, I felt some clarification was needed on which types of plastics are deemed, “food safe.”

What’s in Your Bottle?

POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE— ever heard of it?  Chances are, you have not.

And this is not to say that you are not well-versed in the egregiously complicated language of chemistry because I’m sure you are. However, if you are like me (Lawd Jesus, I hope you are not like me), busy as all hell, sprinting through life, then you probably do not have time to flip your bottle upside down in order to see what type of plastic is being used. That, and you probably never gave it much thought… until now.

I’m just being honest people.

“Is a Lie Still a Lie if You Say it Pretty?”

As Red so eloquently stated in Shawshank Redemption… “You Godda#m right!”

It is not so much that we are shocked by the actions and behavior of government agencies, agenda-driven politicians and shameful health groups who turn a blind eye to the crucially pertinent truth, but rather we are tired, tired of having the same strategic, soulless rhetoric spat in our faces despite the overwhelming evidence.

Oral Health After Making The Switch

It goes without saying that smoking traditional cigarettes isn’t exactly great for your oral health. What about vaping? There was a study done in Italy which evaluated smokers turned vapers to see specifically how their oral health was affected in the transition and aftermath.

Are You a Considerate Vaper?

As a vaper, (especially one who has quit smoking with vaping), it is very easy to get excited about vaping… everywhere, all the time, even in places we maybe, probably shouldn’t. With today’s vapers being under a constant microscope, legislators looking for any reason to impose more taxes, or enact a ban altogether – it is probably best we practice our manners and make sure we aren’t committing any faux pas when it comes to how, when and where we vape.
