I don’t want to quit smoking, I want to smoke wherever and whenever I want, without the hassle, and without “bothering” anyone, and electronic cigarettes are the answer.
My Own History with Electronic Cigarettes
It was January 2007, and I was walking down the aisle at CES in Las Vegas, when I saw a guy standing in a booth “e-smoking” with an electronic cigarette.
Immediately, I saw technology solving our society’s answer to the restrictive new laws and rules about nicotine, AND I saw how I could smoke in the poker room later that night, and even on my plane ride home. I bought a sample electric cigarette unit on the spot, and I’ve been a fan ever since.
In the summer of 2009, I personally abandoned my use of the old three piece technology, and here’s why…

They usually are called “mini cigs” but they’re not “mini” sized compared to a cigarette, they’re called “mini” the original was really long, and looked like a cigarette holder.
Those old ones only came in black, white, and burgundy colors, but with more and more colors now, and even chrome models with different color and sizes of tip types, your choices are ever-expanding.
In the mean time, I’ll try to keep the ecig stores page up to date with thoughts, news, experiences and maybe a few reviews.
Back in 2009, the Governor of California saved electric cigarettes and Oregon tried, but failed to outlaw them completely too, so we thought it would be a good idea to start this page of electric cigarette laws by state
