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!

On The Fence About Vaping

Hey so it’s been I’m not sure since last Saturday that I posted. I better check lol. No I am wrong. I did skip last Saturday, but that is because I was very sick. I am much better now. I was so sick I had to be hospitalised. I know how scary right? I caught a nasty virus, not even going to get into that. But I am better now, done with my medication and all that good stuff, I feel I’m at 100% now, I still need to do a follow up, will do that soon, want to make sure I am 100%.

Oh yeah happy Friday the 13th, do you believe in all that superstitious stuff. I do to a point, like I do believe in ghosts, definitely do. I think I have had a few experiences in my life time, that I won’t recount or I will just spook myself LOL.

friday-13th

Had a good day today, somethings could of been better but as of 7.17 pm all is good in this household. Staying off the roads though, never know lol.

So we did decide to try this vaping I have hears a lot of good things about. We both got a starter kit, our first experience wasn’t that great. I believe the liquid may be too strong for both of us. We got 50/50 24mg, we may have to go with less mg. Anyway, for my hunny, we got what is suppose to be equivalent of a Marlboro, and for myself I thought I would get some Banana Cream Pie flavor. I like it, it really does taste like Banana Cream Pie, it is still a bit strong, so after this stuff is gone. We are going to lower the mgs to the next level.

So what do I think? Well I still don’t feel the satisfaction that I do with a regular cigarette. I had some really high hopes about this. As I mentioned in a past post, I went as far as joining a forum, to see what everyone has to say. I will be going back to share my experience but right now so far, it’s not what I expected, but it does taste good, and it is pretty much odorless, no nasty smelling cigarettes or ashes. My hunny since he felt it a bit strong on the throat, as I did, he isn’t really vaping. I am doing it more, he will take some of the one I use at times, but to be honest, I don’t think he will continue with what he has, as it is not enjoyable.

The two kits combined with some ejuice came out to about $100, I have heard of other people paying outrageous prices, wow. Hardcore people hehe. Seriously though, people will like what they like right? I think I took a picture of my kit. I will show you what it looks like, it came in a nice little zippered pouch, which I love. I am vaping as we speak, and I still don’t feel the satisfaction, I wonder if that will change when we lower the mgs? We’ll see, take a look at my kit below.

Pink Vaping Kit

The light pink portion is the battery, and the middle clear hot pink portion is where the ejuice goes in, and then the tip where I smoke it out of. Cute huh? And the pouch of course, and usb, and wall adapter as well, they also send an extra batter and another clearomizer (hot pink portion) I believe that is what it’s called. I don’t vape a lot, but I am trying to vape so I use up all the ejuice, and we can get some other kind. The place we went with was High Deseret Vapes, it came pretty quick, I’m happy with what we got, it’s a good starter kit. This is the kit we got eGo-CE4-Kit, each kit ran $42.99 not including the ejuice, that was separate, but we ordered it together.

When I smoke it for a while my throat gets use to it, but when I stop it is a bit harsh on my throat, and I have to get use to it again. Since I was in the hospital, I didn’t do much vaping. I waited until I felt better, so I guess I have been vaping off and on about a week. We’ll see how things go.

Ok well I think that is it for now. I am tired, I posted a blog on my other personal blog and I am tired now. I just want to watch a film, and chill. Have a great weekend.
