A few days?! Something wrong there. Might be different with MTL.

You might be grabbing big mods like we use if you're not worrying about batteries.

Not too sure tbh but it's an easy 5 years I'd say. I could have and should have given it up a while ago but the reality is, I enjoy it. I no longer need it though.....I know for a fact that I wouldn't go buy some smokes.
Only 4 for me in March, so less than that.
I was a smoker for about 17 years, the last two of which I tried various NRT to try and ditch the stinkies. Nothing really worked. About 12 months ago I got on to vaping through some guys at work, using a couple of really basic pens and VistaVapor juice. Fucking magic. The wife & kids were all very supportive until last bloody week the kids went to the Life Freaking Education Van at school and Healthy Freaking Harold told all the kids that vaping was as bad for you as smoking. Fucking rot. I understand the need to dissuade kids from taking up vaping or smoking but fucking come on. Anyway, the kids are now pressuring me to stop vaping.

I don't feel like I would run back to cigarettes, but I also don't feel ready to put down the vape just yet.

Educate them better. If they're in public, it's the norm that they're fed a lot of bullshit.

If they're old enough, point them towards the Royal College of Physicians who did an actual study that consisted of more than 5 individuals and found that vaping is 90% less harmful than smoking cigarettes and is a legitimate quitting aid.

Ideally, you don't want to be doing anything but as Soup has said above and you would no doubt know yourself LockyersLeftBoot LockyersLeftBoot, the difference you feel when you go from smoking to vaping is massive. Plus you don't stink.

Healthy Harold should shut the **** up.

I'm sick of uneducated ramblings sponsored by the Liberal fucktard government omg vaping is so bad, nicotine is such a dangerous poison. Because they can't fucking tax it, that's why.

I’m around 10 months off the cancer sticks and not looking back. I still get the occasional pang which is hard, but I suspect that will always be there in weak moments. The key is that the vape method satisfies that craving - I would estimate 95% of the time.

About 4 months ago, based on the advice here mixed with my own research and advice from Sam’s Smokes in Adelaide St, Brisbane City, I upgrades to the Vaporesso Luxe ZV with SKAR-S Tank.

All leakage issues solved, purer taste, interchangeable batteries and much more control of my vaping requirements. I’m using the GT CCELL2 coils and cannot recommend them highly enough. At 35-40W, I get longer battery life, cooler vape (no more burnt lips) and about 3-4 weeks of coil life. Pretty fucking cool, and very affordable, especially now that I’m mixing my own E-juice from scratch.

Put in my first US order of 500ml/100mg premium Nicotine and was really happy to receive in under a week, even though postage cost more than the product. Still really cheap though (sub $70). Ordered separate PG and VG and now have a collection of premium vape flavours to convict my own ‘home brews’.

I was spending about $25 a week on consumables prior (60ml Charlie’s Chalk Dust - King Bellman = magnificent) but am now mixing a similar, though not quite perfected e-liquid for ~$3/60ml/week. Such a massive saving, plus I can modify flavour at will.

I’ve got three sets of batteries and never have any problem of running out of power.

I’ve also dropped from 8mg nicotine to 6mg, and now 4mg. This really has changed my life in so many ways. I no longer cough up a lung daily (stressed about seeing blood some day), the impact to family finances is almost completely negligible, and I can look forward to a longer life with my family.

For someone that smoked ~40/day on a standard day and more on occasion, this has been a complete game changer.

Huge thanks to Nashy Nashy, Harry Sack Harry Sack, R Renegade (funk machine), and everyone else that contributed, I’ve defeated the ciggi monster and Right before my deadline of turning 40.

Just awesome. Sincere thanks guys. Lots of genuine love for what you’ve done to help me and my fam.

Nice one man. Those Luxe kits are nice.
Very nice. Takes all the hassle out and the customisability is next level.

You were right about DIY coils BTW. Just unnecessary for me at this stage.

Just made a lovely DIY juice at 6mg Nic with Black Honey (6%) which is a honey tobacco flavour, NY Cheesecake (4%) and Raw Sugar (2%). Not quite Charlie’s Chalk Dust: King Bellman good, but not far from it. Smooth for daaaayysss.

I'm just about out of nic and I last ordered 2 years ago (yes, I know it's only supposed to last a year but my research suggests it's not harmful to your health, just the overall quality of the nic will degrade) through nude nicotine. was a 120ml bottle with 70/30 vg/pg base.

where do y'all grab yours from? last time out i got mine from nude nicotine but happy to hear other suggestions.

hope everyones still going strong on the vape and aren't back on the sticks (though admittedly i smoked like a chimney when i was in the US in jan/feb, who can resists 6 dollar packs of malboro gold? :) )

Hiliq. Harry Sack Harry Sack did us an order just the other day actually. But shipping will likely be fucked up.

Vapoureyes NZ do it too. They also do easy mix, so if you buy doublers, you just combine the bottles and you're done. Bit pricier that way, but no mixing involved.

Just looking at the site now (hiliq) - it isn't obvious what I am after. Perhaps Harry Sack Harry Sack can inform my dense ass on this. Pretty much after the exact same as I got on my original order as I syringe my own nic into my flavours.

or

I always run 48MG as it's safer than handling 100MG, which requires gloves to handle.

I go 50/50 PG/VG. Harry Sack Harry Sack I think goes 100%PG

Vapers Tek in the US. Cheap, high quality, fast delivery. Costs a bit in postage, but meh. Surprised how quick the order came tbh.

It is 100mg, but easy to handle with gloves, safety glasses. I do it on the family dining table, but prepare accordingly. No bad taste like I had with vapoureyes/Australian pharmacy stuff.

Nashy has answered all the questions really. I run with 100%PG purely because it's thinner and therefore easier to syringe. I also mix my juices between 60/40 and 70/30 VG/PG so the higher PG of the nic isn't a problem for me. I have found though that when I want to mix a high VG juice, it is. Personally, I'd go for a 50/50 mix.

Ordered Sunday and it's due to arrive on Monday. Roughly $40AUD shipping and $13.40US for 250ml of Nicotine. This is my first time trying this type, I've always brought mine from Solblu in NZ but Kimlo Kimlo has been using it for some time.
