(This is a continuation of a previous post.)
So, I began my journey into vaping at around noon on a Tuesday. I had purchased two different e-liquids, Tropwen and Jack Frost. Not really knowing which flavors to choose, I had asked the webmaster of this site, a very friendly guy named AJ. Since I was a menthol smoker, my hand seemed to gravitate towards the Jack Frost bottle first. The vape pen was already intact, so all I had to do was load it up with eliquid. This seemed easy enough.
I opened the instructions booklet that came with the EMOW. They were printed in rather small type in a tiny brochure that was about the size of a standard business card. Now, mind you, I am blind as a bat. Even with my glasses on, I had some difficulty reading the words. So, I took to YouTube instead. I typed in the words “Kanger EMOW” and loads of how-to videos popped up. I chose one by a guy named Chris, and he walked me through the entire process. Within about 5-minutes, I was loaded and ready to vape. Or so I thought.
Oddly enough, the video didn’t tell me how to operate the vape device. I had no idea that I was supposed to “push the button” in order to get the vapor. So, I spent about 15-minutes sucking on the silly thing, making myself dizzy and lightheaded in the process. I tried a couple of other videos, and NONE of them actually told me to push the button. To many new vapers, this might be a foregone conclusion. But to me? It wasn’t so obvious. I was afraid to push the button for too long, thinking that the vape pen might accidently explode or something. I emailed AJ, and he immediately responded. “Yes! Push the button.”
So now I was off and running. I loved holding this thing in my hand, and we all know that holding a cigarette to your mouth is a large part of the enjoyment of smoking, either consciously or unconsciously. I took to vaping immediately, got rid of all the dirty ashtrays sitting around the house, and even cleaned the inside of my car. I wanted no remaining evidence of my past life. I didn’t want any temptations.
By Wednesday morning of the following day, I immediately felt a surge of energy. It happened that quickly. I even hit the gym, took some overdue videos back to Redbox, and even ran quite a few errands. And wherever I went, my trusty EMOW was in my pocket. I even took it to bed with me and fell asleep with my EMOW in hand. Before I knew it, a full two weeks had passed without my smoking a single cigarette. And I had saved a TON of money in the process.
