The Flying Vape

This is a guest post written by a fire spinner from the Midwest.

This week I am heading to California for another flow arts festival called Fire Drums. As I packed and started to assemble my vape kit I began to wonder what the rules were for e-cigs on planes. A quick search on the TSA website showed nothing as far as restrictions go, so I did a search and found a few news articles.

E-Cig Savings at Vapor4Life

This is a guest post written by Keyzygirl from Key West, Florida. Laid back and vaping in paradise.

Like many people I am on a tight budget. My husband had open heart surgery and I had two major surgeries this past year that put us in a mess of medical debt. I worried how I would get through it, pay my bills, take care of my kids and keep vaping. The stress alone was enough to make me want to light up, but I didn’t! Vaping is cheaper than smoking if you do it right.

Greeting Fellow E-Cigarette Vapers

This is a guest post written by LadyStrick9, from Chesapeake, VA who often refers to herself as a “vapaholic”.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve become a person of habit. I like to know what the day will bring. I have several rituals. For example, first thing in the morning, I get my coffee, grab my laptop, prop up all my pillows into a fluffy pile at the head of my bed and settle in and get comfy. Then, I turn on my computer.

My first vapiversary

Hello fellow vapers! It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and I have

Michelle and her friend

been pretty busy. I celebrated my first year anniversary of being smoke free on April 22nd. It was a great day and I’m so proud of myself. Not once have I looked back! It’s been the easiest, most pleasurable year of my life with regards to breaking that habit. I do not think that I would be smoke free today if it weren’t for Vapor4Life and the electronic cigarette. I am so blessed!

Little Sister Switches to Electronic Cigarettes

This is guest post written by Via, an e-cig enthusiast living in Jacksonville, Florida.

My biological sister Tina was my best friend until I was 20. But one afternoon an auto accident took the lives of my dad, Tina, and a three-year old child. I was heartbroken, and knew life would never be the same. I went to live in a hole so deep there seemed to be no escape. I didn’t care about anything except my pain, my loss, and my heartbreak.

From Smoke to Vapor (Part 2 of 2)

This is a guest post by Rantz, who writes surrounded by a cloud of vapor.

 

By the summer of 2010 I’d had enough of smoking. It was a long time coming, built up over the decades, without a single event that pushed me over the edge. Instead it was a thousand little annoyances that ate away day after day, like nibbling ducks, culminating in my serious consideration of giving up the 30-year vice that had become such an integral part of my identity.

Introducing my brother to ecigs

 

This is a guest post written by LadyStrick9, from Chesapeake, VA who often refers to herself as a “vapaholic”.

A few months ago my brother moved from Arizona to Virginia. He had gone through some major changes in his life and wanted his family close by. Part of me dreaded his moving because he was a smoker. I knew it would be difficult for me to be around someone who chain smoked. The last time he and I were together we both smoked heavily. We made plans and he arrived about three months ago.

Techies vs Old School in the ECig World

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.

 

In my experiences I have noticed that there are two types of people drawn most to ecigs. The heavy smokers who have looked for an alternative for years, and smokers from the digital age that are attracted by technology.
