How many of you smoke? Be honest now!!!
2 pack a day Smokers...
1 pack a day Smokers...
1/2 pack a day Smokers...
Even the Closet Smokers...
By that I mean.....
the ones that never smoke:
- around family
- around work (or no one at work knows you smoke)
- around certain friends
in a way, you feel ashamed of your closet habit!
Do you want to know why I know this? Because I was a closet smoker too!!! I was so thankful for having friends who knew me for who I was and who accepted me for who I was! Because around those people I could just relax! No one to go...
"Oh, she smokes? She doesn't look like a smoker!"
I know I shouldn't care what people think about the things and choices I make in my life, but that's me...I can't help it sometimes! Some people found out along the way and didn't care, but I still hid it at times...
I quit a few times in the past, but went back for some reason or another...always thinking "Why did I pick those dang things up again?!?!"
Well....things change....you grow up....you figure out that you're sick of hiding that you smoke....sick of smelling like an ashtray....sick of feeling crappy....sick of smoking in general!
Woohoo!!! What a great decision!!!
I'm here to tell you that I can help you along your way! Here at LifeDesigning1, we want to help you create a healthier you! So....
Here's what I did and it has been amazing in my experience! Results may vary! Everyone has heard of E-cigarettes! Well, have you ever heard of vaping? If you are a smoker then you probably have seen or even tried one of those disposable electronic cigarettes in hopes of kicking the smoking habit. You may have had a similar experience as I did and found that they were just not fulfilling enough and went right back to cigarettes. The little disposables were certainly on the right track but were just not there yet. I then discovered the ever advancing and technology driven world of vaping. With vaping, one can decide just how advanced you would like to get and what kind of a vaping experience you would like. You can choose from an endless selection of mods, tanks and flavors. Unlike using the old disposables, which were very limited in performance and selection, vaping allows you to remain very basic or move to very advanced.
I have quit smoking and transitioned to Vaping! I feel soooooo much better!!!!
Vaping: The process of using a battery powered device in order to heat and vaporize a liquid which can then be inhaled.
E-Juice: Liquid that is vaporized when using an e-cigarette like device. Also known as: E-Liquid, Juice, Nic-Juice
E-Juice commonly consists of 4 ingredients:
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
- Food grade flavoring
I'm in love with Movie Theatre Fish lol. It's my ADV (All Day Vape)!
Mod: The battery powered device chosen for vaping.
The Battery Powered device or "Mod" is just as diverse as the rest of the key elements in vaping. You can have a very small or a very large rechargeable device. A simple to use device or an advanced electronic wonder gadget. On some you are even able to regulate your own voltage or wattage. The options are never ending and new items are popping up almost daily. You can even select styles to suit your taste and personality.
Tank: The device that contains your heating coil, wicking system and e-juice when filled. Commonly these are plastic or glass and go by names like cartomizer or atomizer. This "tank" attaches to the battery or "Mod."
The tanks, as shown below, come in many different sizes. They can hold different amounts of juice and have different replaceable coil and wick systems. The very advanced vapers can even rebuild atomizers to truly gain the vaping experience they desire. The tank system you choose will be dictated by the flavor and amount of vapor you want. Many of the tanks can be used and interchanged on many different Mods.
The above terms are ones that I will be using in order to educate you more on Vaping. ;)
I went with MigCig's Mig 21, I wanted a tank to be able to see my choice of Juice...but yet have a mod with the look of a cigarette. Still one of my faves by far!!!! I've moved up in my choice of mods since then, but always go back to my MigCig! The MigCig is a powerful little device that is just close enough to a cigarette for a beginner. It, through the refillable tank, allows the user to fill it with whatever kind of E-Liquid they would like. It made my transition from cigarettes far easier than I would have thought. I truly enjoy vaping not just for the better health aspects but I find it much more fun and less expensive then smoking. Please keep in mind that your results may vary. I do highly recommend the MigCig for anyone who wishes to try and quit smoking and begin vaping. Check out the link below if you are ready to make the change.
This post gives you my story so far and gives a general idea of vaping. I will have several more posts on this topic and give more details on specific items. Please post any questions or share your experiences in vaping...More from me later ;)
