I have taken the big plunge and want to quit smoking entirely. I never thought I would want to quit as I have to admit I love smoking. Smoking as we know is not healthy and since I have four wonderful children it is very important to be around a very long time. I want to set a good example for my children and they deserve that. With that said, smoking is very addicting and it is not easy to just stop cold turkey. When I tried to quit cold turkey I had the hardest time.
My cigarettes have been my best friend for many years they have always been there for me when I am upset, stressed out, happy, confused, and every other emotion. Taking my cigarettes away is like losing a best friend. For those that never went through quitting may not understand these feelings. All I could think about is how much I want a cigarette and crying how horrible this was and why don’t I just go buy a pack and everything would be better again? I did not want to do that; however, I caved in and bought a pack and then another pack and the cycle continuously keeps going. I have been inquiring about vaping for some time and it sounded like this just may be what I need to help me quit. I contacted Revolver and they sent me a starter kit to help me be on my way to a healthier lifestyle.
Talon Tank System Start Kit
When I got it in the mail I was very excited and then reality set in that I am potentially going to be giving up my best friend and to be honest it is a scary feeling. I know it sounds crazy but like any addiction it becomes part of you and your existence. In this kit it includes
1 – 650 mAh Manual USB Passthrough Battery
1 – 1000 mAh Manual USB Passthrough Battery
2 – Tank Atomizers
5 – Blank Tank Cartridges
1 – USB Battery Charger
1 – AC Adapter
1 – USB Cable
1 – Talon Carrying Lanyard
2 – Tank Cartridge Covers
1 – 5ml Bottle of eLiquid in your choice of flavor/strength
When I first opened it up I was confused and wondered how do I put this together? After I read all the instructions and looked at each piece I was able to figure it out. With this new innovative tank system it has made it easy to fill your tank and vape all day long. This system has no cartridges and no drip tips which mean no liquid in the mouth. Take the rubber tip off, open the box of tank cartridge tips, use the e-liquid provided to fill the 1.1ml capacitor tip and then pop it on the top of your atomizer. Once that is completed you are ready to vape away. Before you do all this you need to charge your Talon fully before use. This tank system has 2 batteries it has a 3.7v 650 mAh manual battery that doubles as a USB pass-through. Simply unscrew the cap at the tip and plug in! When not in use, screw back on the cap and the stylish look is restored. If you are looking for something that will last all day or longer, then use the 1000 mAh manual USB pass-through battery. In addition, it has a shut off switch. To turn off your Talon so that it does not continuously stay on push the button (5) five times and it will blink twice and then you push it (5) five times to turn on and it will blink twice again. When you want to vape hold the button down to vape and then release. The tank cartridges are translucent which makes it easy to see how much liquid is remaining. You can purchase additional cartridges and try many different flavors of E-liquid through Revolver. You can also go to a local vape shop and purchase E-liquids. When you purchase they may ask you how much you smoke so that they can give you the amount of nicotine you would need. You can also find liquid with no nicotine as well.
I have grown too really like vaping. I have been using this Talon for approximately 3 weeks and it is an adjustment. There is nicotine in the liquid and that helps a lot with the cravings of a real cigarette. I do still smoke regular cigarettes and weaning slowly off of them for good. I try to space myself out and vape every other time I would normally smoke a regular cigarette. Now let me talk to you about the flavors!! I have read many articles online as maybe you have too about people saying that this can help you lose weight due to being able to vape chocolate cupcakes! Well, let me shed some light on this for you considering I have a few different flavors and have personally vaped cheesecake! Let’s get real! vaping chocolate cupcake is not the same thing as enjoying its chocolate goodness in your mouth and feeling it hit your stomach. Yes, it tastes great but it is not the same thing! I vaped cheesecake and guess what? I still wanted that cheesecake to the point of going to the store and buying one! No, it will not make you lose weight!!! I think the flavors could make you want those foods even more! Now that theory is blown out of the water let’s talk about realistic goals. In reality, you can completely stop using regular cigarettes and just vape full time. It is a process and it will not happen overnight. Everyone is different but I am talking from my own personal experience. I have been using an e-liquid that is an ultra-light as I thought the red liquid that I received was too big of a throat hit. I like to feel a throat hit, however, not one that will send my throat into convulsions! I hope you will enjoy vaping as much as I do. I think this is the healthier alternative to smoking. No chemicals or additives just vapor. When I went to Disney with my family it was wonderful being able to vape inside the restaurants and no one said I was not allowed to. I take it with me when I am in the grocery store for hours shopping and need a quick fix to get me through. In addition, this Talon is light weight and not heavy when wearing around your neck. If you are a smoker and looking to quit I honestly think this would be the best option especially if you are having a hard time quitting cold turkey. The investment over time pays off of what it would cost for a regular pack.
