So I decided a couple days ago that my pot usage was getting to be too much for the possible health effects it could cause on the lungs. I use a bong primarily, and joints when I'm on the road or hanging out elsewhere a bong wouldn't be feasible; I rarely ever use anything else. (I'm pretty picky about what I smoke out of, guess I'm just an asshole sometimes.) I was looking at vaporizers on the web, and became intrigued as to how a vaporizer would help improve my lung capacity and allow me to do many other things, such as toke when my parents are home. Yesterday, more fuel was added to my vaporizer search when my mother became concerned over my dry cough. (It's probably caused by the dry air in the house, which is made worse by my habit of smoking out of my bong in my room when they aren't around.) She threatened to take me to the doctor to get evaluated as I had a massive case of bronchitis right after April 20th of this year. After researching and going to the local head shop to check out their selection of vaporizers (a Vaporite model and some knock-off Volcano for half the price), I decided that a vaporizer would be a worthwhile investment. As of 1:00pm yesterday, I am suspending myself from smoking until I get my vaporizer on Friday or Saturday. This gives me time to bring my tolerance back up so I can get super high when I use my vape, and allow the symptoms that have brought concern to my mother to dissipate (should take a week or so if it's caused by the smoke; if it doesn't go away, I'm getting a humidifier for my room). On top of that, vaporized THC is technically not the same as "smoking" in the traditional sense. My girlfriend is a major anti-pot person and falls for the bullshit propaganda that marijuana is this horrible substance and causes all sorts of health problems. Maybe, just maybe, with a vaporizer, I can get her to try it. I swear, she has been completely mislead by the ads on TV and all the other social stereotypes associated with marijuana consumption (which is something for another thread). And the vape I plan on purchasing is exactly (or damn similar) to this one: Vaporite Vaporizer on Sale In the meantime, anyone have feedback on that vape or other suggestions? Just thought I'd share that in hopes to get some comments from vape users or people who have been in similar situations as mine. Happy toking!
