It seems like some people get really into their vaping. I’m always watching reviews where it seems like people having taken vaping and turned into into a hobby. You know what I think about that? I think it’s awesome! Those reviews, where people have gotten so into vaping that they spend all their time and money on it and know everything about it? Well those reviews gave me the information I needed to get the setup that is absolutely perfect for me. You know what else I think about it? You don’t have to vape as a hobby to love it.

For me vaping is about not smoking regular analog cigarettes and getting healthier. Every time I pick up my PV I’m not smoking. That’s a win for me. For you the win might come from getting the next latest and greatest mod. That’s fabulous. I look forward to watching your review. So don’t think you can’t be a part of the cool crowd just because you’ve just got a a basic 510. That works for you? You haven’t had a cigarette since you got it? Then that’s all you need. Enjoy watching the others play with their fancy toys, that’s what they need. It’s all about finding the right fit, because at the end of the day what we all want it to avoid smoking one more cigarette and feel a little bit better.

    Well put! I have to admit that vaping has turned into a bit of a hobby for me now that I have found my “happy spot”. There’s just too much out there for it not to 😉

    You read my mind. Altough i think vaping has become a hobby for me i don’t take it to the extreme as some do and more power to them. without them I would’t be drooling over these variable volt devices. 🙂 i will get one some day but i’m happy with what I have for now.

    Well, it started out as a necessity but has became a hobby as well. But as stated as long as it’s good for you health by all means go for it!

    Great post. I know I started as a substitute for smoking, and have really gotten into vaping as a hobby. I often tell smokers that are interested that it is cheaper than smoking if you don’t go nuts and buy 6 ecigs like me.

    It started for me as a way to stop smoking ( I smoked for 30 years) and as I have progressed with it so have my spending habits, LOL. I have all the e cigs, PVs, APVs…whatever you call them, I really need , but I am always looking at new products and thinking “that would be nice to have”. I guess somewhere along the way I have become a collector…have to try the new thing, LOL.

    Great post/blog. I agree, to me its a little bit of a mixture of both. It helps me to “push” towards something and have the coolest tech at the same time. Thats what is going to help me quit for good this time I think 🙂

    It has definitely become a bit of a hobby for me. It keeps me preoccupied when I’m doing something like watching TV. Often times I wanna grab a snack just to snack and there’s no fruit in the house or all that’s left are chips 🙁 E CIG TO THE RESCUE! Haha.

    I will spend whatever I can on my hobby. I own this hobby my life.

    I just saw this after all this time. I agree morrinb, if a stick battery keeps you off the analogs than yes you are in the cool crowd.
    I came to vaping to quit smoking and it worked for that. I’m definitely a hobbyist though. Maybe even a bit OCD 🙂

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your site.

    It appears as if some of the written text within your posts are running off
    the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
