Thoughts On Vaping

I have been vaping off and on for maybe over a month, close to two months. At first my experience wasn’t that great. I come to realise, that smoking and vaping are different in the sense that, it is not going to be at all like smoking. You see smoke sure, but the taste is different, very different. My hunny didn’t like what they call the throat hit, how it feels on the throat, it actually made him cough, and that put him off. Same happened to me, but I was determined to keep trying. I wanted this more for him than for myself. I quit before. I started to smoke because he smokes, a kind of keep him company, we’d share a cigarette and what not. After his experience he was completely turned off to it. I was really hoping this would be what we needed so we both stay off of cigarettes. I still smoke with him, during the day I vape. I really enjoy it now. But at night after he’s home, I’ll share a few cigarettes with him. Look what I found, it’s not mine, but it’s very pretty!

Blinged Out E-Cig

Even though, I still smoke reg cigarettes. I really like the ecig, although I find myself vaping more than I ever smoked how funny is that? The ejuice he tried was the one that would come closest to a Marlboro cigarette, I choose the Banana Cream Pie flavor, which I love. After talking to him about it, and why he didn’t like it. I told him the same thing happened to me, but I kept vaping, now and again. When I take the first hit, it does bother my throat a bit, but after that it’s like numb to it, it’s the best way I can describe it. It’s not literally numb, but my throat gets use to it, after the first hit. I decided to try something he suggested. Mix half of the one he wanted with half of mine, which I did, and it’s still nice. I taste the Banana Cream Pie. He tried it but he still felt the same thing. My conclusion is, we just have to get use to it. So now and again I offer him some. He tells me not to push it on him, so I don’t. I just offer it. I don’t feel that is pushing it.

I don’t know if he will ever completely convert, but from what I read this is a safe alternative. I really hope he decides to try it again, and give it a go. I don’t want to lose my hunny too soon to lung cancer, that scares me. I still have about half a bottle of both ejuices, I had completely forgot that the place I bought it for was having a half off sale on ejuice this passed weekend, but since we had plans, it just slipped my mind. I will have to take advantage of it another time.

Another thing I noticed when I vape often, is I get a dry throat and I need to drink something, I will almost always have water near by. This is what I read about why this happens.

Vaping Dehydration is a real issue vapers must deal with, especially when they first start vaping. Propylene Glycol, one of the four major ingredients of e-liquid (along with vegetable glycerin, flavoring concentrates, and nicotine) is the major cause of dehydration. You can read the rest here.

It’s a pretty good read, and I was right when I said I drink water, but I didn’t know to sip water while vaping. I will have to start doing that. Ok well that is it for me. Have a good one!
