As much as I enjoy a good meal, I also enjoy the flavor of a smoke afterwards. This is especially true around special dinners with guest that seem to spark endless conversations that make these gatherings so worthwhile. But times have changed and I now find myself surrounded by friends and family who have long since given up smoking. No longer do we all gather around the discussion table with a drink and a smoke after our dinners together. Well, we still gather – just without the smoking part. I missed this more than I was willing to admit. After all, I didn’t want to whine about not smoking.
But I guess one of my friends must have noticed that I wasn’t as relaxed as I could have been. I guess he understood the pleasure of relaxing with a smoke after dinner, since he used to smoke, himself. This is why he ended up presenting me with a very interesting gift. It was in the form of an electronic cigarette and charger kit. It took me no time at all to learn how to use it and the refills came in different flavors. My favorite flavor of all time is, of course, menthol.
Now, after a dinner with our company, we all can sit around afterwards with our drinks and our discussions. And I can still have my cigarette enjoyment while we’re all together. My electronic cigarette doesn’t give off the harmful smoke that my original cigarettes did. But the water vapor mist that they do give off contain the flavor and the nicotine that I want. This is a much better solution to the problem of feeling a bit tense after dinner without my usual cigs, since company is visiting. But the benefits of my new electronic cigs go far beyond my after dinner enjoyment.
Because of the way vapor cigs work, you get true cigarette satisfaction but you don’t permeate the air with harmful second hand smoke. The amount of nicotine that you inhale can also be adjusted. This is perfect for those who are trying to cut down and eventually quite smoking altogether. This will be my next project, I guess. As much as I like to enjoy a smoke after a good meal, I think I would enjoy things more if I didn’t feel like smoking to begin with! Complete freedom from smoking is definitely going to be a lot easier to deal with.
