Welcome! I am Vapegrl, and Vapegrl.com has been my home on the web since 2012. I am a professional writer whose life was changed with the discovery of e-cigarettes in 2010. I was a smoker for more than ten years, and I doubted that I’d ever be able to stop. I simply knew of nothing else that came close to mimicking the sensation that made smoking so addictive — until I found e-cigarettes.
My Vaping Story
From the moment that I first touched an e-cigarette, I never used tobacco again. I smelled better, felt better and spent a whole lot less money. It’s been seven years now, and I’ve never looked back.
The e-cigarettes that were available back then were very different from the ones on the market today. The “three-piece micro e-cigarette” was the norm in those days. You’d connect an atomizer to a battery, and then you’d place a capsule containing a wet sponge on top of the atomizer. When you inhaled, the atomizer would draw nicotine liquid called “e-liquid” from the sponge and vaporize it.
Sometimes, the sponge would burn. Other times, you’d simply get almost no vapor. Almost always, the vapor would taste a little like plastic.
Still, the sensation was there — the “throat hit” that no other method of nicotine delivery could mimic. That was enough to make it possible for me to switch completely from smoking to vaping.
There had to be some way to make the experience even better, though.
Finding the Best E-Cigarettes
I think that lots of people who vape have stories similar to mine. Vaping strongly appeals to people who love gadgets, after all, and people who love gadgets love to find ways to make them do more. Before long, I was buying every e-cigarette and trying every e-liquid I could get my hands on. I learned about cartomizers. Later on, I learned about dripping and tank systems. I learned how PG and VG affect the vaping experience. Vaping isn’t difficult, but there definitely is a learning curve if you want to get the most out of it.
By 2012, I had learned quite a lot about e-cigarettes. I decided that it was time to put my experience and my writing skills to use — so I started Vapegrl.com.
