The past holidays had been a whirlwind of some sort especially in terms of socialization. Well, I personally don’t like hosting parties frequently but my husband and I had been invited to a few get-together events in the past month.
During the parties, I usually avoid getting into the company of smokers. We all know how harmful second-hand smoke is and I’d rather be called an anti-social than to be around people who are unmindful of others and breathe out smokes like smoke machines.
But there’s a new craze in smoking that I recently learned from a friend. She’s a host of one of the parties I attended and knowing how I hate cigarette smoke, she was quick to point out that one of her guests was just using an electronic cigarette.
Unlike traditional cigarettes that I hate, the e-cigarette does not burn or use tobacco and doesn’t contain the smoke, ash and smell associated with traditional tobacco cigarettes. Basically, users are just provided with a small dose of nicotine and flavoring while allowing them to satisfy their smoking needs. She mentioned that there’s no second hand smoke, only water vapor.
Hmmm, I guess those kind of stuffs are more socially acceptable than the traditional ones. I’m not sure though. I guess, I have to research on that, right?
