At the end of Entry #1 we covered my very first attempt at vaping! I shared my starter eCig, my first purchase of (way too expensive) eJuice, and my first night of vaping. A whole bunch of firsts! No longer am I an eCig and vaping virgin! I also let you know I was going to be making a trip out to this little local vaping store I had been hearing so much about - and they certainly did not disappoint!
I actually made two trips to this store; one with my Mom on Saturday, and then another by myself today. I am going to give you the general run down on what happened, share the eJuice I decided upon, as well as my thoughts on the flavours and tastes.
I initially had a difficult time find any sort of information on this store. This little place is known around town by two different names; "WowFactor9" and "It's Not Smoke, It's Just Vapour", however the latter is listed on bags, business cards and products.
Regardless of what they were called, as soon as I stepped inside and saw 'the book' and then... 'the wall'... I knew my search for eJuice was officially over! I was greeted with a plethora of options, all of which lined the wall from floor to ceiling, and listed in a laminated book was all available flavours and their flavour profiles. I didn't even know where to begin!
On my first trip, I was intent on an eJuice with the flavour of a cigarette, and a cigarette only. I figured that I am trying to quit smoking, so this would be a similar and an easy adjustment for me if it resembles the taste too. After perusing the 'Tobacco' flavoured eJuices (they have several to choose from), I decided upon an eJuice called... I promise I'm not making this up... "Real F^&*ing Tobacco". As the name would lead you to believe, this eJuice is supposed to taste as close as possibly to smoking a real cigarette as possible. My thoughts? It certainly comes close! However I detected the slightest little bit of clove, which isn't a personal favourite of mine. It is so minimal that its not something I find bothersome. I will certainly not let this flavour of eJuice go to waste!
For today's trip, I was feeling a bit more adventurous and wanted to try something flavoured. When I initially purchased this first eCig, I had absoluteIy no desire whatsoever to try any eJuice 'flavours' aside from Tobacco tastes. I figured that Tobacco flavours were as close as I could get to smoking, and would therefore help ease me into quitting via eCigs. However, like I said I had this itch to try something not quite so... Cigarette-ish....and after seeing the plethora of choices "the wall" had to offer, I decided to go for it!
So I head to 'flavour town', better known as "Its Not Smoke, Its Just Vapour", to seek out an interesting flavour that would appeal to my admittedly very picky tastes.
Thankfully I was not disappointed! I was greeted by an amazingly helpful gentleman who took the time to get an idea of what I was looking for, explained they personally make all juices themselves there, showing & explaining flavours, and even offering me a sample. After plenty of mulling my options (and plenty of patience on his part!), I took his recommendation of an eJuice called "Poems Of The Universe".
Sounds pretty nifty, right?
It is! This tasty creation is an absolute pleasure to vape! Just unscrewing the lid fills your nose with its intoxicating aroma. A very light mix of Pear, Apple and Pomegranate mixed together to into a very cool and fruity mouthful. It's my absolute favourite at the moment! It is not overwhelming or minty, but light, crisp and fresh.
This juice is definitely going to be a long time favourite!
Stay tuned for next time! I'm keeping cigarette count this week! It should be interesting to say the least...

What eJuice flavours do you enjoy? Suggestions?
Do you have eCig related products you'd like to have featured or reviewed? I am looking to find a new eCig, as I am looking for something with much more oomph than this starter one I have. Contact me! firstname.lastname@example.org
