Smoke Screen Lifts in DC as Cigarette Alternative Gains Popularity

Ever since DC’s 2006 indoor smoking ban for bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and other public places, some smokers have been Jones-ing for alternatives.
The birth of the E-Cigarette

Electronic cigaretteWith the ban of cigarettes in DC’s indoor public places, along came the bastard child of the cancer stick: the electronic cigarette. It’s designed to deliver the experience of smoking without the adverse health effects usually associated with tobacco smoke.

What?

An electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking,  bearing the physical sensation and appearance of inhaled tobacco smoke without its odor or health risks.

Cigarette LiquidHundreds of different flavor varieties are available. Some flavors resemble traditional cigarette types, such as regular tobacco and menthol, and some even claim to mimic specific cigarette brands, such as Marlboro or Camel. A wide variety of food flavors are also sold, from the traditional (vanilla, coffee, cola) to the more unusual (strawberry daiquiri, Boston cream pie).

 

How?

Electronic Cigarette HowAn estimated 2.5 million people are now inhaling nicotine through a battery-operated device that heats liquid to make vapor, taking the fire, tar, and many other cancer-causing chemicals found in cigarettes  out of smoking.

Why?

At first glance, these fake puffers look a little ridiculous. Think “non-alcoholic beer.” Yet e-cigarettes have grown up since a disposable cigarette alternative with a weak battery began appearing in convenience stores a few years ago. The rechargeable, next-generation device is sold in tobacco stores and has been said to help some smokers quit nicotine, saving them thousands of dollars (and their lives).

Loopholes

Hookhah SmokingCan’t give up the love of puffing? Some DC clubs and restaurants offer some ways to side-step the smoking ban… kind of.

    It is in point of fact a nice and useful piece of

    I’ve not had a true ciggy for 2 months now thanks to using an e-cigarette. I am now a devoted fan of these e-vapes. I tell all I meet to just Google for electronic cigarettes to check out how well established this business is, and how gigantic the choice is for these fantastic products is. What p*sses me off, though, are the growing number of posts in the media saying how deadly they are. Apparently the big drugs companies – the producers of stop smoking helpers are backing an anti-e-vape battle – not so much the cigarette companies (as one might suspect), as many are starting to think of making them. I can really appreciate the health gains of e cigs. Just stating – that there is always a secret agenda with these faceless entities trying to censure e cigarettes – our country’s legislators should do a
    lot more to promoter their use. It makes me so depressed.

    I will be really angry if they ban them.

    I really like my Ego W e-cig. I think it’s as necessary as my smartphone for me. I had any tobacco for over 2 weeks. It does not cost nearly as much either

  4. […] cigarettes have become an increasingly popular alternative to those trying to transition off tobacco. Coming in a variety of flavors, the battery […]

    Yes, tell everybody you know to search on the web for e-cigarettes to check how big this business is, and how gigantic the range is for these excellent products is.
    What p*sses me off, though, are the growing
    number of articles in the major press saying how bad they are.

    Apparently the bloody pharma companies – the producers of
    stop-smoking products are funding an anti electronic ciigarette PR campaign – not so much the fag companies (as you might suppose) – as they tobacco manufacturers
    are starting to secretly manufacture them.
    I can really appreciate the improvements of electronic cigarettes.

    Just broadcasting – that there is always some secret pact with big companies trying
    to ban e cigarettes … our country’s leaders must do a lot more to support them. This makes me sad. Thanks DC Nightlife – DC Clubbing
