Vaper Morandir reflects on his third vaperversary and the holidays

This is a guest blog post by Morandir. It’s very rare for me to get personal in a blog, but I’ve been in a very reflective mood the past few days. The holiday season combined with my approaching three-year vaperversary brings it out of me. This has been one of the most trying years of my life.

Vaper Spotlight: Stafford

Our customer spotlight today is on Stafford, born and raised in Winnetka who now lives in Northfield. He came into the Lounge to get some more Turtle juice. I sat down with him for a few minutes to talk about his experience with ecigs and Vapor4Life.

When he was a smoker, Stafford smoked 1 to 1 1/2 packs every day. He first became involved with ecigs when he purchased a starter kit from a convenience store. He actually started smoking more cigarettes because of it. Not good. He then moved on to an EGO. Since he’s a techy guy, he enjoyed the technical aspects of ecigarettes, which was fun for him.

The only way possible to go through that many was to chain smoke all day long. Now that he uses e-cigarettes as a smoking alternative Steve is the classic example of a chain-vaper.

Victory 4 Life Vaperversary

I’m not really good at remembering dates but one date will be forever etched in my memory as one of the best days of my life… it’s the day my first package arrived from V4L.  I share my infamous date with other historical events such as the abolishing of the Y formation in college football (1942), the clubbing of Nancy Kerrigan (1994), the last appearance of Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show (1957), and the end of the “Battle of the Bulge” (1945).

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.

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.

World Vaping Day

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

It’s amazing how far we have come as vapers. Just a few short years ago nobody knew what an electronic cigarette was. Now when you vape in public, people come up and ask about ecigs, and they have heard about them or seen them on TV. Ecigs are becoming acceptable to the public.

Some Insight on the People at Vapor4Life (Part 1 of 2)

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.

On the old website there was a very special page that had some background on the founder of V4L, Steve Milin sir (better known as Smilin sir to everyone). It was one of the key factors outside the ECF forum that drew me to V4L first. I figured what better for a blog than a remake of that, only to expand it beyond just one person, but with some info on the men and women behind V4L.
