The Day - January 23, 2015

6:30 AM
My morning routing always starts with a cup of strong black coffee (with no sugar or cream) and a cigarette of course. I smoke only outside, never indoor or inside the car. Hate winter. Cough is getting nasty, I am spitting up my lungs, my chest feels very tight. The store opens at 11 AM.


12:15 PM
$110 + taxes
Just came back from the store with Aspire Premium kit and 15ml of Boba's Bounty 9mg juice (supposedly the best tobacco flavour). The battery is charging and I am having a cigarette (fifth today?). Aspire battery with tank attached looks like a cigar. Reading instructions.

1:30 PM
Haven't smoked since noon and now feel the urge to have another cigarette. According to the LED the battery has not been fully charged yet\ but should be good enough to try. Assembled device and added some juice.  First vape.  Wow! It was not what I expected. The vapour was very light and tasted more like a cereal, no tobacco undertones whatsoever. Coughing like crazy. But the urge is gone. Couple more puffs and got back inside the house. I am still confused how much nicotine  should I use compare to a standard cigarette. After some internet research and, according to this table (Canadian cigarettes) , I came up with the following unscientific calculations:

1. I am smoking about 15 light cigarettes a day, roughly absorbing 1mg of nicotine with each cigarette. 15 cigs x 1mg Nicotine x 1 day = 15mg of Nicotine PLUS 65 mg of tar, PLUS 70+ carcinogens

2. If I vape 3 ml x 9 mg x 1 day then at 50% absorption it should be equal to13.5 mg of Nicotine, but ZERO tar, ZERO carcinogens (?),

7:00 PM
Haven't had a single smoke since noon today. Vaping about once or twice an hour, playing with different voltage settings, mouth-to-lung and directly to lung hits.  Getting very comfortable with vaping. No urges but feel funny, a bit dizzy and my mouth is dry. Do I vape too much or too little?


Few words about Aspire Premium Kit

Likes:
1. Adjustability: Nautilus Mini (variable airflow) feels great for mouth-to-lung hits and variable voltage (3.3 V- 4.8 V) battery produces a thicker vapour at 4V
2. Well made. Nothing is falling apart or leaking. Just works.
3. Capacity: 1000 mAh battery and 2 ml tank lasted almost a day of moderate vaping without refilling or recharging.
4. Package includes charger and spare BVC atomizers.

Dislikes:
1. To turn on/off you have to " Press button 5 times in succession in 2 seconds." Give me  a dedicated on/off button!
2. Battery status is represented by an LED colour: " Blue LED light will display for battery cell voltage of 3.5-4.2V. The Orange LED indicates a voltage less than 3.5V" Give me a little display!
3. Voltage numbers are tiny and you can easily change the setting accidentally.  It should be on that little display I mentioned above!
4. Charger: you have to take the device apart to charge it. Totally ridiculous. How about USB port at the bottom?
