When it comes to finding gifs of guys vaping, it can’t be done. I can only find gifs of vaping women—not that I’m complaining all that much.
I haven’t had a tobacco cigarette since September 22, 2013. I’m pretty proud of that—can you tell?
Last Saturday, I ran into an old friend while I was doing my grocery shopping at the Kroger store on Madison Avenue here in Covington. At one point, he asked me if I still smoked. Out of my pants pocket, I pulled out my electronic cigarette and gave him a vaping demonstration. He got a kick out of that.
The kind of vaping juice I use is called Carolina Sunset.
Some e-cigarettes are better than others. For example and in my view, the Njoy isn’t good at all and is too expensive.
Occasionally, I’ll read an article saying that vaping on electronic cigarettes is just as bad for you as smoking real cigarettes. Since I’ve stopped smoking real cigarettes, I can smell again, taste food again and in general, feel better—so those articles I sometimes read are bullshit.
OK—that’s all I got. I won’t be writing here again until Thursday but I will still be vaping on Wednesday.

A few weeks before the wedding, my son had gotten me an electronic cigarette kit. He had been off tobacco cigarettes for years and I think he was hoping I could do the same.

I didn’t want to write about this until I was fairly certain I could continue on a healthier path for myself. I think I’m OK to say now that I haven’t had a real cigarette since September 22nd—the day after my daughter’s wedding. I’m now smoking an e-cigarette like the one you see in the photo.
My son turned me on to this. I didn’t know if I could make the switch or not, but apparently old dogs can be taught new tricks.
I wrote about this for Yahoo! Voices. You can click here to read more about it.
I’m getting strange looks at the bus stops here in Covington, Kentucky smoking my e-cigarette. You all know how I am. That makes me like it even more.
