    can vaping help smokers reduce blood pressure - featured

      The benefits of vaping when compared to smoking can never be overstated. Instead of inhaling 6,000 chemical compounds that cigarette smokers do on a daily basis, vapers only inhale around five (in addition to food-grade flavorings). Furthermore, a lot of studies examining ‘secondhand vapor’ are telling us that even that handful of chemicals is pretty much harmless. However, recent months have seen a growing concern among vapers (and those […]

  • When In Doubt About Vaping, Turn To Reddit – A Comprehensive(ish) List of Best Vaping Subreddits

    By Ivan Srsen Posted April 11, 2018

      Recently, I did a quick recap post listing the best online vaping-related sources of information. There’s a ton of great information there, and I’ve covered advocacy sites, YouTube vapers, blogs, forums, and other online vape communities. If you missed it, here’s the link – and you’re welcome.   Although I touch briefly on popular subreddits in that post, they are, more or less, just randomly listed. Also, a lot […]

      I know, I know – constantly harping about the repercussions of smoking is becoming a bit tedious already. After all, you’re here to learn whether or not e-cigarettes can help you quit smoking, and not read (yet again) why smoking is bad for you.   Well, tough luck.   In order to quit smoking, you first need to learn exactly why (and how) are cigarettes ruining your life.

      Leaky vape tanks have to be one of the most annoying things vapers need to deal with. A leak can happen anywhere and at any time, leaving you with a real mess that you need to clean up.   Imagine this – you’re walking down the street and, finally, there’s no one behind you so you can break out your mod and take a nice, long puff without enveloping […]

    Vaping Memes 2017

      We’re all fortunate enough to belong to a group of people who don’t take themselves too seriously. At its core, vaping is supposed to be a darn fun activity, one that brings you closer together with other vape aficionados. Recommending gear, talking up (are talking down) vape juice brands, offering tips and tricks for leaky tanks, swapping thermal runaway stories (the fewer, the better) – that’s what it should […]

  • The Effects of Smoking On the Throat – Why Does Your Throat Burn After Smoking?

    Smoking On the Throat

      There’s no disputing the fact that smoking causes damage to multiple organs in the human body – the heart and the lungs being the ones that are highlighted the most. However, we often neglect the effect that smoking has on the throat.   And that’s quite a list:   Smoking-induced vocal changes – if you’re going for a ‘Joplinesque’ quality to your voice, smoking a pack of cigarettes will […]

      Online businesses are booming. Advancements in technology and the ever growing availability of social media continue to shift our focus towards online shopping. This led to the birth of the subscription service model that has exploded in recent years. Within four years, there are subscription service boxes out there for almost every individual. I’ve seen subscription boxes for food, clothing, personal hygiene, and even boxes for pets. One of […]

  • Should Smoking Be Illegal?

      I believe that we can all agree that the damage that smoking does to the society as a whole is not a matter that’s up for debate. As a former smoker, I’m acutely aware of the repercussions of smoking – only a fool wouldn’t be. So that begs the question: if we all know how bad smoking really is, why aren’t real steps taken to completely eradicate the habit, […]

  • The Story of Mouth-To-Lung Vaping

    mouth-to-lung vaping

      The other day I was cleaning my garage and I stumbled onto a treasure trove. Or a clearomizer graveyard, whatever you want to call it. I was over the moon! I didn’t see some of that gear for years, and a trip down the memory I experienced was actually a roller coaster of emotion. My Vivi Nova was there, along with the awesome (for that time) Protank Mini. Seeing […]

      The whole process of quitting smoking is pretty grueling and when you decide to finally do it, you need to stack the odds in your favor. You have to have your vape, your support circle, your patches, your carrot sticks…the list just goes on and on!   However, sometimes all you need is a good laugh to stop you from slipping up. That’s the point of these quit smoking […]

    e-cig history

      If you’re new to vaping, you might be under the impression that it’s a relatively new thing. You would only be partially right – the first e-cig (as we know it today) was only introduced in 2003, in China, from where it spread to the rest of the world during the following couple of years.   However, vaping has a far richer history – although the act itself wasn’t […]

      In the past several years, the war on smoking has been intensifying ever so slightly. Numerous health organizations are joining in; holding rallies, quit campaigns, producing anti-smoking commercials, and so on. We still have a long way to go, but, at least, we seem to be on the right path.   However, while the use of combustible cigarettes seems to be going down, a much more sinister practice is […]

      Keeping your vape pen clean is the real secret of getting a consistently good flavor out of it. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Regardless of the vaping material you use, it will eventually build up in the heating chamber (or the tank) and might completely alter the taste you’re getting, making it rather unpalatable after a while. There are also health and safety issues involved […]

      When you step into the vaping world for the first time, you will probably be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of terms that get casually thrown around; vape pens, regulated mods, unregulated mods, mech mods, sub-ohming, and so on. Stop and catch your breath – the important thing to remember is that none of it matters. You can generally just walk into a vape shop where an employee will […]

      Cleaning your vape tank can seem like a frustrating chore but if you’re looking for a superior vaping experience, it’s one that should be undertaken on at least a semi-regular basis. Whatever you use – a tank, an RBA, or an all-in-one device – after a while, it will get both dirty and smelly.   How often you clean your vape tank depends on several things. For example, you’ll […]

    Burnt Vape Taste

      Getting a burnt taste from your vape is one of the foulest things that you can experience as a vaper. There’s one thing that’s worse – having a venting battery in your pocket – but, trust me, the bad taste that you get from a burnt coil ranks pretty close. To minimize this particular unpleasantness, I’ve prepared a short guide on what causes those burnt taste mishaps and how […]

      Stepping into the vaping world can be both intimidating and confusing. Part of the reason is the (undeserving) bad press vaping is getting lately. However, the bigger problem is definitely the fact that there’s just so much information out there. Terminology, different types of products, different styles of vaping – very few write-ups are beginner-friendly so dipping your toe in such a vast sea can seem frightening. The simple […]

      The world has gone bananas over organic in recent years. Pretty much everything we buy these days has an organic version, and that organic version usually has a rather exorbitant price tag. It was really only a matter of time before we started seeing the word ‘organic’ slapped on vape juice packaging.   So, what’s the deal with organic?   The term organic signifies that something was produced following […]

    As vaping gains popularity, Big Tobacco companies struggle to come up with products that would appeal to younger generations. Let’s face it – these days, absolutely everyone knows that smoking will kill you. It kills 1 out of 2 people who smoke so it’s essentially a rigged game of Russian roulette. We know it and the tobacco companies know it. That makes it slightly more difficult for them to peddle […]
