Cigar rotation is key

Cigar rotation is key

Now that you have prepared your Cuban cigar well enough to be lit, you must actually light it and this is a tricky business as well. The Cuban cigar must be in your mouth as you light the wooden match or the butane lighter, but it should not touch the actual fire at any time. When the Cuban cigar is at an inch or less from the fire, start to draw in calmly. With you drawing in from so close to the flame, the Cuban cigar should light up soon, but now you must rotate it. The rotation is necessary to make sure that the Cuban cigar catches the fire equally throughout.

Although you will rotate the Cuban cigar to make sure the burn is even, there is a chance that the burn may not still be even. After you have lit your Cuban cigar, take a look at it to ensure this. If you find the Cuban cigar to have unlit portions, blow on the lit part of the Cuban cigar a few times to evenly distribute the fire. Take a few puffs from the Cuban cigar now to complete the lighting procedure evenly and adequately.

These instructions are simple to follow and apply, but once applied and followed carefully, you will find your Cuban cigar smoking experience to be quite different from the other days cigar smoking and the difference will be in all likeliness will be a better one if not memorable.

Many consumers in the United States still do not know what the electronic cigarette is or even ways it works. More importantly, there do a lot of folks out there that are smoking a lot of packs of cigarettes per month that should really consider switching over from regular tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes.  Start reading and learn the true benefits that you can get using the electronic cigarette.

Just the thought of trying to quit smoking gets most smokers upset. Why do these folks get upset? Because most of the time people can quit smoking for a couple of weeks or a couple of months and then they take one puff on a cigarette and they go back to smoking a pack a day if not more. This is where the electronic cigarette comes into play.

Electronic cigarettes look and feel just like smoking a regular tobacco cigarette but there are many differences. One of the main differences is that there is no combustion associated with the electronic cigarette – so there’s no need for a match or a lighter to light it up. It uses an electronic cigarette battery. The battery is then connected to an atomizer. The atomizer is attached to a nicotine cartridge containing pure nicotine suspended in water.  When you puff on the electronic cigarette, the battery triggers the atomizer to heat slightly, which then vaporizes the water and nicotine in the cartridge. The atomizer gives off nicotine vapor (steam) when you inhale. When you exhale there is no smoke but water vapor that dissipates within 5 seconds.

The electronic cigarette has so many benefits you can hardly imagine. One of the benefits is that you can use these electronic cigarettes anywhere, inside, outside, at a fancy restaurant. It doesn’t matter where you are you can smoke them because there is no smell or second-hand smoke. But the fact that electronic cigarettes are not subject to smoking bans is the least of their benefit.  The health benefits of switching to electronic cigarettes is the biggie.  And one that has the immediate impact.

Satisfaction at your fingertips

Satisfaction at your fingertips

Whatever your choice of electric cigarette style might be, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have put tobacco use behind you and are getting your nicotine in a way that many researchers believe to be much better than smoking tobacco. When you order your electric cigarette starter kit, no matter the style, just make sure that replacing your nicotine cartridges and any parts you might need later will be easy. You should check the availability of replacement parts such as the battery sticks and atomizers before making your final decision. Choose an electric cigarette company that will have these parts in stock for you when you might need them.

If you are not a flashy person in any way, then the electric cigarette that you choose to buy will most likely be the one that most resembles a traditional cigarette. It will have a white body with perhaps a brown or white filter portion that will not attract very much attention at all unless of course you are using it somewhere smoking is prohibited and then you might likely have to explain that you are vaping and not really smoking.

If you are a little more flashy sort of person, then you might be tempted to purchase a sleek black electric cigarette that sports a greater look of sophistication and style. This type of e cigarette will certainly make you more noticeable at parties or other places. These e cigarettes have the more elegant look of something that might have been seen in the twenties or thirties when smoking was all the rage and smokers used those long cigarette holders and fancy holding cases. Fancy storage cases are available for electric cigarettes as well and are the perfect accessory to complete you spiffy electric cigarette.

Then you have an electric cigarette that comes in a pen style. This is for the more discreet users that do not wish to display their electric cigarette use at all. It can be carried in your pocket and look completely innocent or it can be kept in a neat little case on your desk at your home or office and no one would ever know what it is. These days there is a terrible stigma attached to smoking and the electric cigarette might not yet be accepted by some people. So, if you are worried about having a reputation that could be misconstrued as being a smoker, then the pen style might be just the device for you.

Lack of FDA approval

Lack of FDA approval

Besides those very real, very appealing facts, they are also very happy about the cost. Smoking ecigarettes costs about half as much as it does to smoke regular tobacco cigarettes. eCigarette smokers enjoy the convenience of the product as well. One battery stick and one filter in the morning and their vaping apparatus is set for use all day for most average smokers.

Many smokers and even those that do not smoke themselves are having a hard time understanding why exactly it is that the FDA is dragging their feet so much about approving this product.

The chemicals that are used in the nicotine solution are not some unknown, untested elements. All of the ingredients used in the nicotine solution are things that are already used in a variety of different products that have FDA approval for use. So, what is the hold up?

There are going to be a lot of annoyed and even angry people if they are denied the right to use a product that they believe is much safer by their own determinations and the determinations of many researchers that have studied the products and its effects. The way they look at it is like this. If tobacco, as deadly as it has been proven to be time and time again, is still legal and is openly sold everywhere to anyone of legal age, why can they not have the right to buy this product that could be proven to a much better alternative for smokers?

A little controversy

A little controversy

This is a post I churned out recently after reading yet another ‘spin’ article about the evils of e-cigarettes. I thought I would repost here to give a sense of where I’m coming from with ecigs….I think these things are livesavers and I’m real concerned about the campaign to have them ‘outlawed’. I’ll post more later…

I have to wonder why there are so many articles about electronic cigarettes like this one popping up all over. I smoked tobacco cigs for 37 years and was definately suffering from their effects. I was aware, but did not care one way or another about e-cigarettes. I had tried to quit smoking many times using all the available aids – zyban, chantrix, gum, patches. I had lost both of my parents to smoking related deaths and had resigned myself to probably dying from the effects of my habit. Then I tried to sell my house and had trouble doing so because of the smoke smell. I decided to try e-cigarettes to be able to smoke in the house and not create any odor. I never planned on actually quitting cigarettes.

No one was more amazed then myself when I found that e-cigarettes were a perfectly adequate substitute for cigarettes – for a heavy smoker such as myself. Some of the ‘Mall’ brands of e-cigarettes that are sold in the kiosk’s might not be to much like a real cigarette. But a little research and experimentation with the many products available online quickly showed me that there are e-cigarettes that taste and act so much like regular cigarettes you can barely tell the difference! I decided to try and just smoke e-cigarettes and again, to my amazement found that it was VERY EASY to switch from a 37 year deadly tobacco habit to electronic cigarettes. I do not know for a fact that e-cigarettes are ‘healthier’ than regular cigarettes.

Common Questions

Common Questions

I guess a big question that people have when they are considering switching to e-cigarettes is…do electronic cigarettes work? It’s a fair question! It’s hard to believe that something powered by batteries could replace the ‘ol plant matter on fire, but they can. They absolutely can. There are a few things to look at here, because a lot of people truly believe that electric cigarettes don’t work and can’t replace tobacco. For the people that believe that – you’re doing it wrong! And it’s okay that you’re doing it wrong, but let’s try to fix it.

The Brand You’re Using isn’t Very Good

There are a lot of crappy e-cigarette brands out there. Ecigs are a new invention, so obviously there are going to be a lot of startup companies that put out crappy products that they bought from overseas and resold. So if you’re using a brand like Gamucci or Smoke51, than you’re just not going to get great results.

I would recommend a brand like V2 Cigs, Smokeless Image or Safe Cigs. These brands offer e-cigarettes that really do work. Check out our best electric cigarette reviews for more information about these brands. They create huge clouds of vapor that slide back smoothly into your throat and satisfy you like those old tobacco cigarettes. They also have batteries that last a long time and won’t die out on you when you’re out on the town.
