Cooler Talk: E-Cig Edition

As a vaper, I’ve been approached by many people who come from both sides of the “e-cig spectrum.” You know, the “naysayers” who think this is a fad or on the opposite end, people who praise me for making the switch. Some people just genuinely want to know what e-cigs are really all about. Well, I’m here to tell you MY version of what I say to anyone who asks me about my vape.

Stadium Smoking

Bars? No. Clubs? No. Blue Angel Diner? Also no. That’s how I felt when the smoking bans

Chicago Cubs

went into effect. At the time I was in the peak of my smoking career and now I had to watch where I smoke? Fine. I’ll be complacent but what I hated the most wasn’t the glares, or the signs, the measurements of 15 or 20 feet. No. It was sports.

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.

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.

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.

Public Vaping

I am not a “full-time” vaper. I usually puff on an e-cigarette just a couple of times throughout the week. Because I am not addicted to nicotine, and don’t want to ever go back on that route, I use e-cigarette cartomizers that don’t have any nicotine in them (0mg).

Let’s Talk About Juice, Baby!

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

Let’s Talk About Juice, Baby.

Alright, you’ve got your favorite handy-dandy V4L Diamond battery, the Slim Chargers, the Drip Tips, and all the other gadgetry. Now what? So many juice choices! Where to start? There’s USA juice, WOW juice, Premium juice, and VG juice. What does that all mean? Well different PG/VG ratios for starters, but I’m no techie. For me it’s about taste, throat hit, and vapor production. Flavor is most important to me, next being throat hit, and vapor production is least important, although I do love clouds! When I started out, I tried all the sampler packs. Pre-filled cartos are a good way to get an idea for a flavor, but the true flavor is in the juice. So when I would try a flavor I liked, I would buy the bottle. There is definitely a difference between pre-filled and filling your own with bottled juice. I highly recommend filling your own cartos with your favorite juices. Your taste buds will thank you! Continue reading

Tales of a Closet Vaper

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

I was always a closet smoker. I never smoked in front of my parents, my children, or most of my family. Some think that’s silly and I have to admit, I do too. Since I’ve been vaping, I’ve been more acutely aware of how much cigarette smoke leaves behind, long after the smoker is finished. However, I was always one to carefully air out, and I have had nonsmoking friends tell me that they have never smelled cigarette smoke on me. Nonetheless, I’m sure the telltale remnants were there. It was just not a topic I wanted up for debate, hence, the concealment.
