Hello my beautiful fellow vape
rs! (My "real" name is Heather, but I am a Great Dane Momma- hence the nickname….) I have been "lurking" <acronym title="e-cig
arette Forum”>ECF for quite a few months, and I am kinda nervous about being "official" here… Believe it or not, I’m more shy on a forum, than in real life- where I can "read" someone in person… Vaping as help me QUIT(!!!) the stinkies, and for that I will forever be grateful. My main mission in life is to now help more people feel as AWESOME as I do when they finally make the decision to break free from the analogs. (Oh wait… when the accidentally quit and prefer Vaping to smoking…. lol)
Once I found my first favorite juice
, I quit THAT day. I live in a small town in KY- where vaping is still very "unknown"- (I have had people call my mod
s "crack pipes"!!!) I have taken the initiative to open our own little Vapor shop- (there’s not another one around for 30 miles- in ANY direction!!!) I recently did our local festival, and the welcome I got was AMAZING!!! (I sold out of almost everything!!!) Since then, it’s been a little easier to educate people- although the "hemp oil" saga still has quite a stigma, being a small town!!! (Although it saddens me that there are still a lot of "closet vape
rs" in our area). The one that sticks out the most in my mind is a super sweet girl I met- she had to have been about 25-26… She slid her shoulder bag around to hide it, and then pulled out the mouthpiece to her Protank… She was super self conscious about the fact that she vape
d!! She said, and I quote, "I am a vape
r, I like to mod
, but I don’t want anyone else to know- can I sneak behind your booth to try some of your juice
My question to all of you beautiful vape
rs: Have you had to deal with similar issues? How have you dealt with them? I know the benefits of vaping, but most of our small town residents have "listened" to the scare tactics… Any "tasteful" ways to deal with this??
Thanks in advance!
