"What?" I asked a coworker.
"I asked, do you vape man?" He said pointing to my pocket.
I looked down and saw what he was pointing at and it was my new electronic cigarette.
"Ohhhh, ha, yup, just started." I said back in a matter of fact tone.
"Coooool Maaaan", He nodded and walked right by me.
What year is this? I thought I was back in high school for a minute.
This is day thirteen of no snuff. I have dipped Copenhagen for many years. I quit it several times cold turkey for up to three months, but always came back to it. There is nothing more refreshing than filling your lip full of a big dip of snuff.
The wife got me this electronic cigarette thing and a new juice that's called Red Man. It is a vapor that tastes just like my snuff. This here still has the nicotine in it, but it does not have all
the other chemicals and my lip won't rot off. Plus the strength of the
nicotine is variable. I am on a high strength right now because I just
started. The next bottle of juice I get I will lower it. This will
continue until I am using this thing without any nicotine in it at all.
At first I was against it because I didn't want to look like one of those fruity metrosexual guys you see getting there nails done and carries a purse.
If you don't know what a metrosexual guy is, it is a guy who clams to be straight, but likes to be pampered like a girl. To each there own I guess, but I didn't want to be even close to that.
So anyway, I guess it's more common than I thought. There are more guys on the job site that use them than I first figured.
Just in eight days my lip feels better and I have found a whole new culture out there. Did you know they have Vape Bars? Yea, no kidding me neither. You go in, belly up to the bar and Vape. I never would have thought such a place existed. I am not saying I would darken the door at any of those places but hey, If a guy can carry a purse and were nail polish, then I can sit at a bar and Vape.
That's all folks,
MDR (a Vapor and proud of it)
