    Dear new vaper

    My open letter to anyone thinking of vaping:

    Dear new vaper,
    Lately there has been a rash of stories about mods blowing up in faces. If you choose to vape rather than smoke (a great decision IMO), then take the time to understand what you`re getting into.
    If you walk into a shop and let them know that you are starting and they show you something that looks like no electronics other than a battery are needed, walk out. This is a mechanical mod, there is no protection…IT`S A FRIGGIN`TUBE.
    Now let`s get started:
    Doing homework will save you time and money before you hit your first vapeshop…it did for me (actually all my money was spent after, but you will learn about shinyitus later in your journey)
    Now you go to the vapeshop:
    1. can I see ID…fine all good,
    2. you will need a power source and tank for ejuice. These days there are so many options for regulated mods (that have safety features) that you can have from 30 to 200+ watts at your disposal, Start low.
    3. Does it need batteries
    4. Ensure the batteries will live up to what you will need…remember that clerk that nearly sold you the mechanical mod? Don`t ask them, they`re idiots…read up or ask on a Facebook group or hey RIGHT HERE (lots of great people)
    5. Remember, batteries and keys, coins etc. don`t get along together, get a case to hold batteries…they are cheap.
    6. Now a tank…so many options there as well…ask around before you shop. There is plenty of good advice on the internet. Some are made for flavour first…I recommend that to start. Clouds will come later (what’s that you say…not into clouds lmao I said the same thing, but it is fun)
    7. Now choose your juice. Generally people start with a tobacco, but that may vary. Ask the clerk what strength you should start with. This usually depends on how much you smoked.
    8. In Quebec, our ever popular governments have decided you cannot try said juice in a shop, so it’s a gamble (hmmm lotto Quebec)
    9. You are ready to start. Good luck and watch YouTube, join many Facebook pages and stay in the know
    Simple education will both keep you aware of risks and your picture out of the news for exploding batteries.
    Thanks and have a great long & healthy life

    Going to get worse if the Ontario regulations come in that were put on hold. Can not have anything on display and can only sell things if they ask for that item specifically. you can not show them how to use it, explain it or anything about it. Got to save the kids you know. LOL
    We are all cloud chasers. Otherwise we would all be chewing gum or putting on patches.
