A note about me;
At 46, I went into the hospital, and had to have a quadruple bypass surgery – that is an open heart surgery. It seems that cigarettes, as well as a bad diet, and lack of exercise lead to clogged arteries that feed my heart. 4 of my main arteries were 80 to 90% closed off. After that, I was determined to not smoke again. However, once the pain medication wore off, several weeks later, the cravings came back.
My heart doctor told me, that if I did not quit smoking cigarettes, that I would be back in there in 2 years. Trust me – that is pain that you do not choose to go through. Open heart surgery leaves you with more pain than you could ever imagine in your wildest nightmares. For over a month! and that is with good pain killers.
I made every attempt to get away from cigs. I tried the gum, patches, lozenges, chantix, and even hypnosis, cutting back a little at a time. None of it worked. One day, I picked up some E-Cigs from a gas station to check out. I didn’t like them, because the battery would have to be charged several times a day. But later on, I went to a flea market when there was an E-Cig store set up where I could try out better versions. These were pretty good. I thought , hey, this may be the ticket to get me completely off of cigs, and let me dial down the nicotine over time.
We started at 24 milligram e-liquid, and kept going down over time. Eventually I will be at zero nicotine. This is actually working for me, and it is not driving me nuts. I don’t have the cravings for a smoke very often now, because these actually taste a lot better. I love the fact that they do not make me stink like an ash tray, and I really do feel a lot better. I couldn’t tell how much better, until my wife picked up a pack of smokes… we smoked them, and with my health issues, I can feel the pressure, and problems that they cause.. it is kinda strange and hard to explain, but I could feel my arteries causing problems after a real cigarette, And now that my taste buds are back, I don’t even like the taste of them anymore.
It may not work to help everyone else stop smoking… It does not work for my wife, but it is sure working for me. With or without FDA approval as a healthier, alternative to tobacco cigarettes, or not, it is doing a good job for me, and letting me get away from real cigarettes my way. Without going nuts, without itching from a patch, or having to tape the dang thing on to keep it there. No gum pulling my fillings out. Just vaping.
This all lead me on a quest for more flavors. I began making my own vape juice, and kept making more and more flavors. After some time, I began thinking about opening a store. One thing lead to another, and after a lot of research, we are now in business. We have invested a good deal to open the store, and plan to continue investing more and more over time, so we can serve all of our customers needs from the beginner to the more advanced vapers.
We are opening with basic supplies for rebuildable atomizers, as well as a small number of atomizers. In the near future, we will carry a full range of wires for rebuilding, as well as several types of wicking materials. Also, we will have a full range of atomizers from the more basic ones, on up to the most advanced models. It may take us several months to get everything in stock, but for those that desire the more advanced atomizers, it will be worth the wait.
UPDATE: Next month I will be 52. I have been cigarette free for a long time now. We opened the store in October 2013, with 9 flavors, and the basic kits to get people started. Now, we have over 50+ great flavors, had to move into a larger store, and have a wide selection of both beginner and advanced products with more variety on the way very soon.
Thank you for reading the page.
If there is anything we can help you with, or that you would like us to carry in the near future, please let us know.
