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.

I check my email then eagerly click my way to Vapor4Life’s Member Forum. After getting to the main page and clicking on “New Posts”, I adjust my blurred morning vision to the thread titles and there it is – my ever-present daily greeting, titled “Good Morning and Good Night Vapers”.

Daily ritual

Forum member “StephanieT” makes it a morning and night-time ritual to scour various sites to find just the right picture or graphic to post for her forum friends to start or end their day with a cheerful greeting. It’s like getting a greeting card twice a day. She’s been doing this for months and I recently realized that I’m not alone. Many other members also really look forward to this considerate and thoughtful contribution to begin and end our days.

Stephanie always finds something befitting to post. Sometimes these adorable and thoughtful pictures are sparkly, complete with cartoon characters and fluffy stuffed animals, cheerfully looking at me from the monitor with twinkling eyes, just waiting for me to arrive so they can bring a small, but relieved smile to my still-sleepy face. I usually tilt my head to one side and murmur “awww”, able to relax since finding and viewing my morning greeting.

Forum features

On the Forum’s posts, at the bottom right corner, is a button option for “Like”. I couldn’t possibly move on to the next “New Post” without fumbling with my mouse pad and lightly tapping this feature. This is a big deal on the Forum! Members who “like” a post, can let the author or contributor of that post know by clicking this button. The author then gets a notification that one of their forum friends has admired one of their posts. I can also choose to “Reply” to Stephanie’s greeting. This option opens a fresh window for me to type my response. It’s loads of fun!

I often say to myself “what a silly thing I’m doing, I feel like a kid”. Then I answer myself and say “Good! I could use a few more of those ‘child-like’ thoughts during my sometimes stressful day”.

So grab your laptop or smart phone and let the kid in you come out and play by visiting us on the Vapor4Life Member Forum. Take a peek at the “Good Morning and Good Night Vapers” thread. This is just one of many fascinating, interesting, and colorful features. There are also plenty of technical, educational and informative bits of information that fill the pages of the Forum.

Good morning and goodnight everyone!

You can usually find LadyStrick9 on the V4L forum networking with members and guests.

    • Hey thanks Stephanie! I can’t believe I’m just getting all this great feedback months later! LOL But I’ll take it! I appreciate folks taking the time to read and comment.

      Thanks again :)


  1. You’re so welcome, Stephanie! And your heart-felt greetings are anything but “goofy”. Even if they were…we could all use a little more of that in our lives I think. I know I enjoy it. So…thank YOU!

  2. I love the Blog post! I have the same morning ritual, can’t start my day off without checking in on everyone. Part of that ritual always includes seeing what lovely goody Stephanie found for us today.

    Thank You for Thanking Her in such a delightful blog post.

    • Thanks Mystic :) I haven’t been on the forum much and I do miss you. I appreciate your comments on the blog, as well. Thanks. It’s almost like these blogs popped up again out of no where, eh? LOL

  3. Well done, miss lady!!! You are a real gem too…we would all be lost without your greetings, without you quickly finding references and links…without your level-head giving advice and opinions…kudos!!

    • Thank you Via. For some reasons these comments are just coming through to my emal and I’m seeing them months later. But I wanted to say I appreciate it.

  4. Hi Lady =) I stumbled upon this feed on my facebook page, an I live in Virginia Beach. May I ask where in Chesapeake you are located? My husband and I have been vaping for almost 2 years and we would love to meet you!!!!

    • Hi smoke! This would just figure! I just moved to Colorado a few weeks ago! LOL I wanted to be near my younger daughter for a while. But we can certainly stay in touch online! Feel free to PM me anytime :)

  5. I agree Harmony, need a like button in here too :) And to see from your family a Happy and Heartfelt Good Morning and Evening is always nice to see, It def. brightens my my ritual is close to the same as LadyStricks’.

    Thanks for Reposting AS on the FB wall :)

      • Hi TxTunesLady! I’m so sorry I didn’t reply sooner, but I swear I just got all the comments now! I think there has been a “bug” in the system somewhere for a few months!

        Thanks so much for commenting, it’s so important to those of us who write these blogs to know that someone out there finds them interesting!

        • Don’t worry Lady Love, As I said ..That is why I sign up for the weekly news so I don’t miss this stuff. since I am new. Had i not signed up I would probably never see this, though i do see Morandir’s Sir’s because he has so much information I stumble upon. And this was an old posting and Audrey had put it up on FB so that helps as well since I see EVERYTHING from V4L there as well :) Please don’t apologize, and I find everything interesting :) pretty much!
