Homer Simpson said it best when he said, probably in sarcasm, “Owww look at me, I'm making people Happy! I'm the magical man, from Happy Land, who lives in a gumdrop house on Lolly Pop Lane!”
Indeed, we don’t often take the time to appreciate the things people do to make us happy. Whether it’s getting all dolled up for a romantic evening, or treating your family to a huge (and expensive!) dinner, or even choosing the personal vaporizer over the traditional cigarette pack. You have done a swell job at making people happy since you have chosen the far superior choice of e-cigarettes, the nearly perfect simulation of smoking without the associated problems. It’s not just for your benefit but also for the benefit of your friends.
8 signals vaping is making other people happy.
1. Lots of kinky stares and leers coming from sexy singles.
Let’s face it, since you’ve stopped excusing yourself from parties to go outside and have a smoke every five minutes, you’re meeting a lot of new people. You get to have more conversation and less huffing and puffing in the parking lot. That means more mingling time, more flirty conversation, and fewer mentions of the lame pickup line “Mind if I smoke?”
2. They’re constantly asking you what you’re doing.
That means they’re fascinated with that new age device that looks and feels like a cigarette but can’t figure out quite what it is. This is the perfect opportunity to explain what vaporizer technology is, and also a great way to convert other smokers to smokeless, hassle-free vapor.
3. They compliment your teeth.
Why are your friends suddenly so obsessed with your chompers? Well, we have a good idea…ex-smokers tend to notice that their teeth are far whiter when they “vape” than when they used to smoke. Smoking stains teeth an ugly yellow color and tends to “eat” into practically any material. However, vapor is almost invisible and remains washable. That means cleaner teeth and…
4. Your friends don’t shrink back in horror whenever you talk.
Yes, smokers have notoriously bad breath. You hardly ever hear of extreme odors when you vape, or use e-cigarettes or e-cigars. You maintain a much cleaner mouth and your breath stays as fresh as your choice of toothpaste or breath mint, without the acid tang of tobacco smoke. Fresh breath and white teeth means you’re far more kissable to the attractive population.
5. Everyone remarks how beautiful your house looks.
Wait, what gives? Haven’t you always had the same white walls? Perhaps, but cigarette smoke discolors and stains walls, whether it’s a big white wall or even painted surfaces. When you vape, you ensure that your wall paint stays the same pure color as when you first painted it. If you notice your wall is looking brown or yellow from all the smoke staining, wash and scrub it with a scented detergent. Open the windows for several hours and allow fresh air to heal the paint damage. Before you know it, your friends will be in awe of your smoke-free house and want to stay over for movie night.
6. People want to plug your e-cigar into their iPad.
Seriously, what the hell, guys? Why are so many people eager to connect the e-cigar or cigarette into their iPads, iPhones and iPods? It must have something to do with the vaporizer’s design. It does sort of look like an Apple product; it’s sexy, tech-friendly, gadgety, and frankly it almost gives you a good dose of dopamine just to pull it out of your pocket and used its battery power to light up. That’s right, your friends will never have to see or hear you pull out that 20th century lighter and light your cigarette again. They will be jealous that you have the one gizmo they don’t own yet. But please, don’t let them try to connect your e-cigar to their iPhone. No good can come from it!
7. They’re all very proud of you for making the big switch over to personal vaporizers.
Yes, don’t be surprised if your friends congratulate you repeatedly for switching over from smoking to vaping. They not only think you’re courageous and strong for doing so, but are probably envying that cool little gadget that simulates a cigarette.
Pity them…if they quit smoking in the 80s or 90s they probably had to go with the nicotine patch or the nicotine gum which are just about as gross as they sound. They’re probably thinking, “That lucky fool had it so easy. Back in my day we didn’t have a fancy vaporizer!”
Yes, whenever your friends start shaking their fists and reminiscing about their hard times in life, you know they’re proud of you!
8. You're happier and that rubs off
You know what happens when you change a habit that's been inhibiting you? You feel free and light and that shows in your attitude and swagger. We don't blame you...this world needs more happy people. So Vape On.
