One of the things that can sweeten a 7:30 morning class is a smoke. Not a cigarette smoke, but a vape smoke. After all, how can we be expected to think that early? Vaping certainly has a lot of perks, even if some colleges ban vapers outside, next to smokers. If you have the habit of puffing e-juices you probably relate to some of the most common problems vapers have. As campuses are conquered by vapers, here are the things only students who vape can understand.
1. The moment you need to step outside to vape.
Vaping in class is a tabu everywhere and in some colleges it is even prohibited by law to vape outside the smoking areas. Governments seem to put vaping in the same category with smoking, so you need to follow the rules. Even so, having to vape outside, surrounded by smokers you are trying to avoid is definitely a real problem.
2. There are still many people who are unaware of what vaping is.
Some teachers and students are still unaware of what vaping really is and why it’s not the same as smoking. Be open to discussions and be ready to answer questions about your vaping habit. The last thing you want is to have a bad attitude towards those who don’t understand students who vape and the vaping culture.
3. Getting e-juice all over your books.
Every time you think you’ve put the cap on tight, you open your bag to discover e-juice all over. Including your latest class notes, which is definitely a problem.
4. Sneaking a vape during a boring class.
We all know we were not supposed to do this, but we’ve all probably did it at least once. Sneaking a vape during a lecture can save your life and can make it easier to resist until you can finally indulge in your favorite habit.
5. Being late to a class because you’ve lost your vaporiser.
Students who vape have large collections of vaping devices, but the one you are using at the moment always seem to vanish in the most uncomfortable moments. The moment when you have to show up on time to a class or an exam is definitely one of the worst times to lose your vaping device.
6. Out of power.
Between remaining out of smartphone battery and out of vaper battery you still have no idea which one is worst. To avoid being sorry, you can carry a power bank with you, so you will be able to enjoy your vaper and your phone.
7. Trying to impress someone by blowing amazing clouds.
At a party or at a gathering, students who vape will probably try to impress someone with their ability to make large clouds. The problem is not everyone is going to be impressed. It’s always better to leave the amazing clouds for the times when you are on your own, at home.
8. Having to explain the entire vaping culture to someone.
Freshmen students who vape usually have the luck of sharing the dorm with a nerd, like Paris from Gilmore Girls, who doesn’t vape, but still wants to learn everything they can about this habit. In the end, they still prohibit you to vape in the dorm.
9. Finding other students who vape.
In your first year at the college you will have the impression that you are the only vaper in the campus. If you are lucky enough, you will find other vapers, but if you continue to hide your favorite habit from the entire world, chances to meet in the campus are low.
10. Running out of your favorite e-juice.
Even if you are lucky enough to find a juice shop near your campus, your world will fall apart if they don’t have your favorite flavour.
