Living the Atlanta "Vape-Life"

See also

For roughly 18 years I’ve committed to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Now, I want to make a recommitment to my health. I also want to take responsibility for my carbon print and put-a-cap-on the heinous gases I, personally, add to the eco-system. At the end of 2013, I am finally going to stick to those decisions by way of help from the increasingly popular e-cig. But, first I have so many questions concerning the switch many smokers are taken to vaporizing their nicotine consumption.

Wait, just a second. You may be thinking this is another one of those empty attempts to make a New Year’s Eve resolution that probably won’t get accomplished. But, this time it’s true; I am ready to commit to what some regard as, the “World of Vaping”, after I figure out a few things about the safety of electronic cigarettes. Understandably so, with less than two weeks away from the New Year, I am a bit nervous about this promise I have made to myself to quit smoking cigarettes for better health. Hence, I thought it may be necessary to enlist a few good contacts for finding the facts about e-cigs and to start developing a support system for the possible switch-over.

Knowing the withdrawal symptoms I am soon to face, I am both anxious to begin the process for healthier lungs and justifiably apprehensive to make the pledge to live a tobacco-free life.

Some “Vape-Vets”, who have made the transition from “Smoker-to-Vaper”, have said the use of e-cigs have attributed to them having less cravings for “real cigarettes”; aiding the cessation of smoking. It’s great to have testimonials and all, yet, we can’t all follow like sheep. Therefore, my worry is that there haven’t been any further documented studies on the health effects of electronic cigarettes making the debate over regulation very confusing to follow. Not, that I trust everything the government regulates anyhow. Beyond, package warning we all now know that smoking almost anything in alternative to tobacco cigarettes is better for your health - when picking the worst of the two. However, I have to believe it is imperative that one must research what is put into the body before obliging to what could be potentially harmful.

In addition, I found a way to hold myself accountable for this New Year pledge of a life free of tobacco. I figured I could turn this opportunity into a documented one, by working on blog that will journalize my new commitment to vaporize the stinky habit of smoking.

Simply and truthfully speaking, old habits die hard. This is the reason I know I need a tobacco vaporizing partner, like Atlanta Vapor as a guide to a lifestyle that has been proven to be safer, cleaner and less expensive. Maybe, after I take a visit to the new location in South Atlanta, I can learn more about the ingredients in the vapor liquids and discuss these regulation concerns with the pros of vaping!

After all, I’m not getting anywhere surfing the web to stumble upon all these lifestyle forums on what is apparent to be a newly found vast subculture of nicotine “vaping” enthusiast who all seem to build an international awareness on the “coolness” of what I hope to call the “vape-life”! I know. I know. That is all too much to inhale at once. Well for now, let’s call it a ‘vape be continued…’!
