Having moved back to Europe, started a new job, I figured it was time for change. Prompted by a few new co-workers who are also using e-cigarettes, I made the leap to actually get into that whole thing as well. Being a total newbie at it, I had no idea what this entailed, except that instead of lighting something on fire, you used liquid and vaporized it.
I did run across something that looked like a normal cigarette in a store and on a whim decided to buy that instead of the pack of smokes I was going to get, and boy, was it something of a disappointment. It did get me my daily dose of nicotine, though, but other than that it turned out to be, well, not such a good thing for the price that was asked.
Having done a little research, I found that there was a store (oh heck, a vape shop, to throw some jargon around) near my house, and purchased a Kangertech E-Smart starter kit. It came with 2 complete e-cigarettes, and so my adventures in vaping began. I opted to have a liquid that resembled the flavor of real cigarettes to make the transition a bit easier. The store staff mentioned that this was one of the more popular kits and liquid combinations for a vaping beginner, so that pretty much settled that for me.
I’ll leave it at that for now, because there are many more things I want to write out about all of it, but suffice to say in the two weeks I’ve now been vaping, I haven’t touched a real cigarette. Well, once… when I ran out of liquid and wasn’t able to quickly get some more, so I resorted to smoking a real cigarette. All I can say about that is: yuck.
