The Great American Smokeout was created on November 18, 1976 by the California Division of the American Cancer Society. It takes place on the third Thursday of November. This year is our third hosting a free “trade-a-pack” event in our Smokeless Lounge. On Thursday, November 21, smokers are welcome to trade their pack of smokes for an ecigarette kit any time between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. The kit includes a Vapor King battery, a cartomizer, and a USB Charger. Our Lounge will be open for one extra hour to accommodate those who can’t come until after work.
Did you know that Wednesday, July 24th was National Cousin’s Day? No, I didn’t either! But, luckily, Vapor4Life had a National Cousin’s Day Sale, which reminded me to call my favorite cousin!
My Favorite Cousin
I began smoking in 1967, and my favorite Cousin, Olivia, was right there with me, every step of the way. At family gatherings, we were always sent out to “the back 40″ to indulge in our stinky hobby; and no amount of being banned, no amount of pleading was going to deter us! We were both skinny then because we were busy smoking and not waiting in line for Gramma’s freshly churned ice cream and Auntie’s peach pie, still warm from the oven! Yum, yum!
I ended 2012 by joining a gym and signing up for the Spartan Race with one of my best friends. A little self-improvement never hurt anyone, right?

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.

On December 23, 2011 I celebrated my one year vapiversary. Thanks to all the chaos going on around me, I wasn’t able to blog then as I had hoped. Now that everything has settled down, I figured it was time.

The acronym “KISS” is often used in the ecig world. As good as “keep it short and sweet” sounds, in the ecig world it can lead to poor hardware and juice decisions. Giving people a blanket statement without evidence to back it up leads to frustration. A lot of people may not understand why I go into so many technical details in my blog posts and on the forums, but information is key.
Have you considered giving a V4L starter kit to a friend or family member who smokes? It is a wonderful way to say “I care about you.” You just have to make sure to start them out with the right products so they have a better chance of making the switch.
