Joining a Vape Community
For new and old vapers alike, we at VaporFi know that being a part of the vape community can be a great way to learn more about the technology and the logistics behind vaping. It can also be a great place to turn for support if you are switching from cigarettes. The best part is that there are countless ways to get involved with the vapor community –you just have to look around.
The simplest way to get involved is to start by visiting an e-cigarette forum online. The typical e-cig forum is full of discussions about all kinds of vaping topics. From mixing your own e-liquids to wrapping your own coils, there is so much to learn.
You can get involved at your own pace, first by reading other people’s posts and then by making your own posts, asking questions and contributing your experiences. Over time you will become familiar with some of the major players in the forums, and you will form friendships. In addition, forums are a great place for people to share upcoming events in their area and invite people to attend.
Local Vaping Meetups
If you’re looking for more of an in-person social experience you’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of local meetup groups and communities that welcome new members. A quick search online through social media platforms is often enough to put you in touch with other vapers in your area.
Meetups can take many forms, including board game nights, discussion sessions, wine tastings and more. Local meetups are a great place to find people who can teach you something new by demonstrating it in person. They’re also just a nice way to find like-minded folks for outings.
Conventions and trade shows are becoming an important part of the vapor community. More and more companies are joining together to put on big expos where vapers can see all of the latest and greatest that vaping has to offer. There are usually discussion panels, lots of free goodies and plenty of people to talk to while you’re there.
You can participate in e-liquid contests and try out samples of the newest flavors, but you can also meet a number of professionals who are leading the way with new products.
Cloud-chasing competitions are popping up all over the place. Even if you’ve never vaped before, it’s hard not to be drawn into the excitement when you see somebody creating elaborate shapes out of nothing more than vapor. This is a great place to make friends and learn from the masters how to get started with your own tricks.
There are both local and national competitions going on throughout the year. Some competitions are hosted by vape shops in your area, while others are hosted by larger organizations. Competitions are where the most advanced vapers tend to hang out and exchange ideas.
Finally, a number of advocacy groups have entered the vape community, fighting for consumers’ rights to use alternative nicotine products. If you’re interested in vaping law and research, this is a good way to get involved and make a real difference on both a local and national level. With so much disparity between vaping laws from state to state and a slew of new federal laws coming into play, it is important for all vapers to take part in shaping legislation.
Many vapers fear that lack of public education on the subject could make it easy for vapor products to be banned altogether. As a member of the vape community and a vapor advocacy group, you will have the opportunity to reach out to non-vapers in your area and explain the benefits of vaping on a personal level. This will help the entire community through safer alternatives and a better understanding of how vaping works.
If you’re ready to become an active member of the vape community, the best place to begin is by talking to your local shop. They can put you in touch with all of the local groups and events in your area as well as give you resources for contacting advocacy group chapters in your city. The vape community is an important resource for new and old vapers alike. It can give you a great place to read and learn about new techniques, but it can also help you develop strong relationships with other people who have used vaping to quit smoking.
Eventually you can become a mentor for other new vapers who need a helping hand. In addition, joining a vapor advocacy group can help you get more engaged in local politics and make a real difference in how your city and state view vaporizers. The more involved you get, the more of a difference you can make.
