A Letter to Santa

This is a guest post written by Joyce B., an emergency management professional who has been enjoying Vapor4Life products for just over a year.

*Note: Wader is V4L’s Inventory Manager

Dear Santa Wader,

It’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me. I’m afraid that you may have gotten the wrong impression from my last letter. A lot of people say you are not the real Santa, but they are wrong. During the rest of the year, you may be mild-mannered Wader, but during the holiday season, you become Santa Wader. You have control of resources and production of all of our favorite toys in the greatest of workshops. I believe.

V4L’s smokeout event was a great success!

Yesterday was the 36th annual Great American Smokeout. Vapor4Life celebrated by hosting a free event to the public. We offered an electronic cigarette in exchange for a pack of traditional analogs. The event was a great way for us to showcase our brand new Smokeless Lounge and store. Normally open Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, we expanded our hours yesterday an extra three hours. We wanted to make sure that as many people as possible who wanted to come in, would have the chance to, whatever their work schedule might be. There was a steady flow of customers throughout the day. In total 70 people attended.

Ooooh oooh that smell. Can’t you smell that smell?

“Well actually no, no I can’t smell that smell. I’m not smoking, I’m vaping.”

The famous philosopher Immanuel Kant theorized that people’s knowledge of the outside world depends on how we perceive things. Back in 1760 this proposition was unheard of. Now it just makes sense (pun intended).

Coming out to my Mom…about E-cigs

This is a guest post written by Clover, a college student and vapaholic from the Midwest.

My parents never approved of my smoking. Not many parents would, I guess, but it really didn’t sit well with mine. When I started vaping I didn’t even tell them. I was afraid they had only heard the bad press. Whenever I would visit them I would chain vape the forty-five minute drive to their house and only vape in their bathroom. I wanted them to notice that I didn’t smell anymore without having to tell them why. It wasn’t until seven months into my vaping journey that I finally came out about my secret.

The ‘Go-To Electronic Cigarette Flavor’

Finding That Perfect Flavor

When I first started vaping I had the tendency to try as many flavors as possible. At the time Vapor4Life only had four flavors so this was easy to do. We quickly added several more flavors and now have more than 150. As I got into my vaping groove, I found that I tend to pick one flavor and stick with it. The flavor has changed over time, but I find that I’m always reaching for my ‘go-to flavor.’

Creature of Habit

I’m the type of guy that when I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. At the restaurants that I frequent, I usually find a favorite on the menu and order it every day. Once, over a three-week stretch, I ate tuna salad subs every day. For me, this translates naturally to vaping. Whatever my ‘go-to flavor’ is at any given time will definitely be found in my cartomizer.

Early Days

After the initial phase of trying many flavors, I settled into tobacco flavors. After a while that too became boring and my new ‘go-to flavor’ became Caramel Mocha Frappe. I vaped it all day all the time. Then V4L started adding WOW flavors and

I found some new favorites.

The Wowboy Days

The first flavor in V4L’s WOW line was Wowboy. The first time I tried Wowboy, I did not particularly care for it. But as it happens with many things, it started to grow on me. We began selling it and people raved about it. I tried it a few more times, and one day it just hit me that it really was a great flavor. It was like a switch going off in my head. The flavor was well balanced with a bit of tobacco, a sweet chocolaty hint, and just a touch of mint on the finish. There is a reason why it is our best selling flavor, it really does just hit the spot.

Changing It Up

I vaped Wowboy every single day exclusively for about six months. One day I decided I needed a change. We had just gotten a shipment of some new flavors including WOW Waffle. I instantly fell in love. Waffle became my new all day, everyday vape. After about a month, I picked up Wowboy again and instantly remembered why I loved it. I picked up again the old habit of carrying multiple flavors with me every day. I’d rotate through them during the day, even mixing in new flavors here and there. Choice is one of the great things about vaping. There are so many great flavors that you can vape a new flavor every week for almost the entire year. When was the last time you heard a smoker say that?

During the past month I have been rotating between the Nobacco USA Juice flavors. My two favorites are Java Mint and Beach Bum, but give me a few weeks and I’m sure I’ll be onto something else. I do tend to rotate flavors more now, but I will always have my ‘go-to flavor.’ It’s like that old, holey pair of jeans, the more you wear them, the more comfortable they get.

Until next time…VAPE ON!

How I Went From Occasional Smoker, To Occasional Vaper

How It All Began
Like many, I began smoking my freshman year of college. It was the first time that I had the freedom to do what I pleased, without needing permission from my parents. A lot of people at college smoked. It looked cool. It felt cool. I liked how smoking made me feel. I started by casually having a cigarette here or there, taking one from a friend if they offered. The single smoke here or there quickly became an addiction. It didn’t take long before I started buying my own packs. Some nights I would find myself smoking the last cigarette in a pack I’d bought that very morning.
