How long have you been vaping and how long have you been using Volcano?
I’ve been vaping and using Volcano products for three years.
What products do you currently use?
I use a LavaTube II with Volcano brand MEGA Clearomizers and full strength BlueWater Punch and Vanilla Bean e-juice.
What’s your favourite product from Volcano?
My LavaTube II, it’s a beast!
What are your favourite Volcano flavours?
BlueWater Punch and Vanilla Bean. They are strong enough to taste, but in no way overwhelming. My wife says that she can catch a slight whiff of them and that they smell pleasant.
When did you decide to become a vaper, and how has it changed your life?
I decided to start vaping after I found out that my children had developed asthma despite my best efforts to never smoke in their immediate vicinity.
Have you ever fallen off the wagon and gone back to smoking? If so what’s your current smoking situation?
Three times and only for a day or two at a time. The only reason why these events happened was because I had not timed my orders properly and ended up running out of juice or usable cartomizers/atomizers before my shipments had arrived. Each time I resorted to analogue cigarettes or cigars while awaiting a shipment, I’d end up vomiting.
How much money do you think you’ve saved by taking up vaping instead of smoking? Do you do anything interesting with the extra money?
I’d guestimate thousands, I was a very heavy smoker before vaping. Any money saved from no longer using analogues ends up going toward small trips to fun places for the kids, new computer hardware, or (now) savings.
What are your goals with vaping? Do you plan to quit altogether or remain a vaper?
I have no intention of quitting vaping. There’s no harm being done to myself (other than the effects of nicotine, which are almost no different from the effects of caffeine), there’s no harm being done to the people around me (studies confirm no second hand nicotine), and with all of the negative aspects of smoking not being at all apart of vaping, there’s no real reason to cease what is an enjoyable activity and conversation starter.
What would you say to people thinking about making the switch to vaping?
Do it! Sure, the first two weeks will be a bit rough (I went “cold turkey” from analogues to ecigs) but the benefits are readily able to be seen, felt, and smelled. Do make sure that you go with a high quality brand like Volcano, the quality of hardware has a lot to do with the vaping experience. Other “good selling” brands may not provide high quality batteries, or worse, atomizers/cartomizers, which means that, regardless of ejuice strength, the hit you get won’t be at all satisfying. Spend the extra few bucks on the initial investment of a great piece of hardware from Volcano, as well as the recommended accessories, and you’ll find yourself a much happier camper.
