vaping in paradise.

I think most vapers have an addictive personality. This probably isn’t too
surprising, since we’re all addicted to either nicotine or the hand-to-mouth simulation e-cigarettes provide (or both). We need to get our fix. I admit that I am just as bad as anyone else.

Time to stock up

When they can, vapers tend to really stock up on supplies. Tax return time is a favorite. I’m always amazed how much of my return goes toward stocking up on juices, batteries, cartos and extras like drip tips and cases. You can never have too much, right?

What if something happens and we can’t order? We must have extras! I am very guilty of this. How much extra is enough? I think it varies from vaper to vaper. For me, I need at least a two-month supply to feel safe. That means I need a few extra batts, an extra charger, at least six to eight boxes of cartos and several bottles of my favorite juice. You need backups for everything you use! It’s not like we can just walk into the store and buy a new one. (Unless you’re fortunate enough to live close to V4L’s Smokeless Lounge & Store that is!) If you lose your ecig, you should have another one handy. If your charger dies, you need to have a backup, or your batteries are useless. They only work when they are charged.


What if your taste buds go wonky and your favorite V4L flavor starts to taste funky? You need to have something else to switch to. It is always a good idea to have a few different ‘go to flavors’ that you love. What if you go to order more cartos online and your ‘all day vape’ is out of stock? You need to have back-up flavors that will hold you over until it comes in. It really helps to be ready by finding a few acceptable flavors, if that happens to you.

That’s the dirty secret of vapers. We are hoarders of vape supplies. We love our collections and are always adding to them. When new products are released we need to try them. New flavors, new batteries – we need them all. We could do our own TV show, and call it “V4L Vape Hoarders!” How many of us would be on that? Most of us I’ll bet.

With that, I will leave you with the vapers’ motto: STOCK UP AND BE PREPARED!

  1. I’m surprised that Keyzy seems to be describing me… I’ve been vaping for only ten days, and in these ten days I’ve just switched from the regular cigarettes, but stocked a lot of batteries, liquid, cartomizers… I feel there’s nothing that Keyzy said that weren’t absolutely true, and in my case, I’m in Brazil, what makes me wait for almost a month to recieve my orders and pay expensive shipping taxes, what makes my order a lot of things just to avoid being out of supplies and be tempted to buy regular cigarettes.

  2. Well considering Im very new to vaping, I have not got to the hoaring stage. Also I am very blessed to have a friend who is a major fan of Vapor4Life, hook me up with every thing I need to keep me tobacco free. And for the first time in 13 years I have gone days without tobacco cigerettes. without my vapking this would not be possible. I wish this was out 10 yrs ago. I am amazed every morning not to be lighting up and freezing outside. I leave you with 1 word. Awesome.
