    News Flash...E-cig in Local Supermarket

    I never thought I would see the day but yesterday in the Stirling Foodland supermarket I saw e-cigs on open display at the cigarette counter.

    I was at the checkout just idly staring into space when I spied them. I was so gobsmacked I didn't even get the details. They looked like the joytec 510. Taller than cigalikes. The brand began with "V" I will get more details on the weekend.

    Good on SA....... Progressives that we are.

    There are lots of cigalikes popping up at tobacconist stores and newsagents.

    Hopefully safeway and Coles enter the mix at some point.

    It'll be harder to ban then.

    The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you stopped have leading them.
    The have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded you do not care.
    Either case is a failure of leadership

    One problem with that is the smokers who pick them up, try quitting with zero-nic vapes,
    give up, then go around bad mouthing vaping as useless..

    Totally agree, I have met many people who were frustrated as hell with them and have always gone back to the stinkies.

    I myself was tempted before I discovered vaping and having no information at hand, at least not at first, I was totally lost with what to buy, from where, ect...

    Unless you stumble on a forum like this, you have nothing to go on, so I don't blame the people who buy them.
    I will be travelling in time, please leave a message and I will get back to you last week.

    Irrespective of what I think about the actual device I was still floored by them being on open display and for sale.

    Yeah, I've seen them here in "alternative" shops, but not in a conservative supermarket.

    Most of the tobacconists around here have them as well, though I also would have been very surprised to see them in a supermarket.

    It's a start though.
    Thankfully I had a mate who introduced me to vaping and at least pointed me in a general direction until I found this place which has become my vape home and a constant cause I financial annoyance seeing everyone and their toys.

    It shows you how surprised I was I didn't even get the first letter right. It's actual Flava Vapour and its distributed through a SA company.

    Buy Electronic Cigarette Online - Flava Vapour

    It looks a bit expensive for my taste but it's there.
