Healthy Smoking!

If you are a smoker, don't forget to bring e cigarettes the next time you travel especially if you are headed to Europe where most hotels are smoke-free! Remember the e-cigarette I got for
B? Well it sure came in handy on our vacation. Since no real smoke is emitted from the e-cig, it does not trigger off any alarm nor does it leave a nasty smell; perfect for use in smoke-free areas.

They say it is best to quit smoking cold turkey but if there is something to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms of quitting smoking, why torture yourself by going cold turkey? The electric cigarette is the way to go when it comes to "healthy smoking". You may say there is no such thing as healthy smoking but electric cigarettes actually give you that option. Smiley

Electronic cigarette is a great smoking alternative because it looks, feels and tastes like the real thing. The only catch is that it is NOT a cigarette so it does NOT harm your health the way a cigarette does. How it works is that the e-cig atomizer heats up and vaporizes the liquid nicotine into a fine water-based mist that replicates the look and feel of smoke. This smokeless vapor gives you the real smoking experience minus the hazardous chemicals, tobacco, tar, carcinogens and carbon monoxide contained in a real cigarette! So if you really have to smoke, you can still do so the safe healthy way with
electronic cigarettes. Smiley

Our European Escapade last year saw us staying in 4 different hotels but only one had smoking rooms, which was
Britannia Hotel in Manchester. I have yet to post about this hotel, which I will of course in due time. But first, here's a sneak peek of the hotel!

Britannia Hotel

I love the winding staircase in this hotel, it is by far one of the most spectacular I've seen. Check out the grand chandelier too, love it!

Who is that "posting" at the top of the stairs dearie? LOL... that is Zany and I've mentioned him a few times already in my EE posts! ;) ;) ;)

Mizé,  February 02, 2011 10:11 PM

Hello Marzie,
I´ve been a bit less active in EC but really miss you guys and am back to my regular drops.
I reduced my smoking when I started rolling cigarettes instead of buying normal packages. Although quitting would be much better this change worked for me.
Hugs xx

Bill,  February 02, 2011 11:47 PM

I used to be a smoker but gave it up long time ago. I like that stair case also Marzie. As always you look awesome posed by the stair case ;). Happy Chinese New Year and Virgo hugs to you my dear :*

Mariuca,  February 03, 2011 12:02 AM

Hello Mize!! Oh me too me too haven't been dropping EC for days and the recent bug just killed my mood entirely, so I'm guilty of the same thing ha ha ha! Rolling ur own cigarettes helps to slow things down a bit eh? Perhaps I will suggest that to B as well, thanks sweetie and big hugs! :* :* :* :*

Mariuca,  February 03, 2011 12:11 AM

Oh good for u Bill!! I'm sure that was a toughie but you did it so congrats! Thanks Bill, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel too and will put up the full post ... hopefully soon he he he.... =-X =-X ;) ;) ;)

Happy CNY Marzie.. though we do not celebrate such occasion here

bluedreamer27,  February 03, 2011 4:20 AM

David Funk,  February 03, 2011 6:36 AM

Hi Mariuca! :* :* :*

I've never smoked, but everyone else in my family does outside my younger brother, too. However, anything that promotes healthy living is a good thing.

I like the Britannia Hotel already seeing this pic! Wow, that is a NICE chandelier! As always, lovely pic of GP on the stairs!

Happy CNY to all friends that celebrate it! :) :) :)

Life Ramblings,  February 04, 2011 11:39 AM

Good morning and Happy CNY Mariuca. How's it going dear? Have u paid a visit to your MIL yet?

Life Ramblings,  February 04, 2011 11:40 AM

my DH doesn't smoke so it's a good thing and he always smells good. :) wow, the hotel staircase and the chandelier look so grand indeed but must be very pricey too.

Life Ramblings,  February 04, 2011 11:43 AM

Sorry for not being able to make my presence here often. things have been really hectic lately. i'm resuming work this Monday and next week, i'll probably be flying to shanghai for work though bookings are not confirmed yet.

Life Ramblings,  February 04, 2011 11:48 AM

tonight i'll be catching with some ex classmates for yee sang dinner. i could hardly wait but a bit nervous too, it's been almost 2 decades since i last met up with them.

Life Ramblings,  February 04, 2011 11:50 AM

hope you've a great Chinese new year this year with your loved ones.

Scotty's Princess,  February 04, 2011 3:27 PM

I hate the smoke from cigars, GP. Good thing there's e cigar, hehe.

WOW! The hotel look so elegant and cozy. I can't wait to read your post on that one.

:* :* :* :*

MaxiVelasco,  February 05, 2011 2:23 AM

Oh my! such a lovely hotel! I hope one day, I can step on that hotel,too! :-D :-D :-D

MaxiVelasco,  February 05, 2011 2:24 AM

I am actually planning on buying my dad an e-cig. He smokes a lot and even if he tries so hard to quit, he just can't. E-cig might just help him.

MaxiVelasco,  February 05, 2011 2:25 AM

Have a lovely weekend!!! mwah mwah mwah! :* :* :*

mahayu,  February 06, 2011 2:45 AM

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 5:33 AM

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 5:36 AM

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 5:37 AM

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 5:40 AM

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 6:01 AM

Oh u should get him an e-cig than Maxi, cause even though he can't quit immediately, at least he'd be able to smoke healthy in the meantime, let me know how it turns out then! :D:D :* :* :*

Mariuca,  February 08, 2011 6:03 AM
