Is it the safe way to light up?

I consider October as my favorite month. It’s because I get to receive gifts from hubby twice, lol! Aside from my birthday, our U.S. wedding anniversary falls on this month as well. So it’s practically like a prelude to Christmas for me, which is pretty exciting, don’t you think? Just today, I did my shopping for anniversary gifts for hubby. I’ve always found it difficult to get something for him. Not because he’s meticulous or picky, but actually, it’s the contrary. He’s too simple I guess. Even just the right kind of book would make him happy. But I didn’t want to just get him a book, I wanted something special, fun and personal but it’s hard to pick the right choice. Sometimes I wish hubby smokes because that would probably give me more gift ideas, lol! I saw some cool lighters in the store today that I would have bought for him if he had been smoking. But of course I can’t get him that because he had quit smoking ten years ago. Not that I’m complaining, don’t get me wrong. I’m not sure if I’m okay with the idea of him smoking in all honesty. I don’t like the smell of cigarette smoke to be honest. It feels like it constricts my breathing. So I think it works perfectly that we both don’t smoke.

I know of some people that wanted to quit smoking but just couldn’t, so I guess it must have been really hard to stop craving for tobacco. However, I have heard about the e-cigarette fad. The makers of e-cigs claim that they are the new alternative for smokers. They say that e-cigarettes are green since there’s no pollution of the environment with this product. E-cigarettes produce a vapor that looks and feels like smoke, but without the offensive odor. Even some Hollywood celebrities have been open to admitting that they use e-cigs. So this could be the future way of smoking, who knows. Now whether they are safer to use than real cigarettes is an unknown fact. Those claims have yet to be proven. As a matter of fact, electronic cigarettes draw criticisms from FDA and other medical groups. Personally though, since it’s the secondhand smoke odor that really bothers me, I think I’d rather have someone smoke an e-cig than a real tobacco cigarette. Oh well, just saying…
