Trends and fads come and go, but very rarely do they stick around and become something more. They usually start as some soft of newfangled idea and grow into a huge success that’s really only short lived because something new comes along. Which begs the question, are eCigs just a trend or something that’s here to stay?
As a short answer to the question: no, eCigs are not just a trend, but something that’s actually growing and evolving into a lifestyle. You might be wondering how this is any different from a fad or what makes this a sustainable practice. It’s simple really, what makes eCigs special and different from trends: their ability to accommodate many different types of people from all walks of life.
For example, let’s think of a trend that has lived and died to mass popularity: Beanie Babies. That’s right, we all remember the little bean bag animals that were mass produced for millions of people all around the world! These little critters did so well as a collectors item that for a couple of years, Beanie Baby mania swept the world… but then, as quickly as it had come, it was gone! Why? Because people realized that Beanie Babies really had no value and left contribution to anyone’s lifestyle. In fact, the demographic for Beanie Babies was actually quite small with small children and middle aged women as their main consumers.
What makes an eCig different from a Beanie Baby in terms of trend? Well, first, a lot more people can make use of an eCig. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, 18 years old or 100 years old; it doesn’t even matter what your income is or what your hobbies are! eCigs are used by a huge number of people from all walks of life: ensuring their stability in the world market and keeping the door open for constant growth.
Another way that eCigs defy the odds that Beanie Babies fell to is their impact on people’s lives. How many of you have a basement full of Beanie Babies that haven’t seen the light of day for nearly ten years? These objects really had no value and didn’t do much more than sit on a shelf… eCigs on the other hand are something that you can use every day! People find more value in something that actually serves a purpose, making eCigs instantly valued by those who use them.
The reasons for eCig success are numerous, but above all, we can determine that they’re not just a passing phase that people are going to leave behind in a few years. If our examination of past trends has shown anything, it’s that people soon leave behind the things that they don’t really need.
