I'm assuming I'm a bit of a rarity here, but I'm a non-smoker picking up vaping. Well to clarify, I smoked for 4 or 5 years, but one morning I woke up coughing like crazy and said, 'screw this!' and quit cold turkey. I'm not letting smoking get in the way of my harmonica playing. That was 5 years ago.
The problem was, I loved everything else about smoking. I loved the hand to mouth, I loved the throat hit, I loved the feeling of a smoke in the middle of a stressful day at the office, and there's something about smoke that seems to fit the blues and jazz atmosphere. (is it just me or do blues bars not feel right without all the smoke?) I wasn't happy about stopping. As soon as I heard about vaping, I knew this was for me.
This afternoon I received a volcano e-cig. I've read a lot about these so I followed a few tips like scraping the foil off the atty. Despite the reviews, this thing had great vape right out of the box. And the flavors are pretty good. A little lighter than I expected but good.
Now I'm laying on the couch listening to some smooth jazz, watching a lighting storm, and vaping from the comfort of my couch. This is what I've been missing.
So that long rambling intro is my way of asking if there are any other non-smokers who have taken up vaping? What was your reason? How do you like it? Or am I the freak of the group?
