    Who else is into this?

    I've been doing it off and on for a few years, with analogs on a regular basis. ESPECIALLY when drinking. However, since the baby, it's been 100% vape.

    My at work rig is a large 808 setup that's easy to use on the fly.

    But I've recently picked up some 510 stuff. The one in my hand right now:

    [​IMG]

    It's an itaste vv with a Kranger AeroTank2. I've got a few other batteries for it.

    This stuff is a wallet saver. As well as a nose and marriage saver. Wife hated the analogs. A lot.

    Plus the added bonus of being able to sit in the living room and watch TV with it.

    Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, and constantly coughing. Keep in mind I been a pack a day smoker for 12 years. I don't know if it was due to the e-cig or no more cigarettes. It continued for over a month so I stopped vaping for a few days and everything got better then of course I picked up cigs again.

    My cousin actually just opened up a vape store here in town. I'm not into to smoking, just when I drink a little bit but I've only tried it a few times and it's not bad. I don't really wanna start that and it be a gateway to cigs haha

    Oh. Well the constant coughing was for sure a lack of cigarettes. I went through that. Coughing up black stuff. Gross.

    Casey, I can tell you as someone who used to smoke all the time, once you make the transition to digital 100% the smell and taste alone is gross. So I can't see going the other way. However, I wouldn't start either in your case.

    The guy I work with just couldn't make the switch. He's a 2 pack a day smoker. And now whenever I get in his work van, it just wreaks of an ashtray. And I can't stand it.

    Vape is Oxford Dictionary's word of the year in 2014! It is not officially part of grammar!

    Never vaped before, not into smoking either. Most of the people I knew that were into the vapor were college kids trying to be cool and trendy. A couple of buddies at work recently started in an effort to quit smoking, and they both said that it helped a lot. I have noticed they smell better when they come back from their lunch break.

    I was never a cigarette smoker, but I do love my Cigars. I've swapped to Vape during the winter months as it's just too damn cold to sit outside and smoke a cigar for an hour... I definitely do not need it or rely on it, but I partake maybe once or twice a week.

    I didn't really like the way typical e-cigs and even the nicer mods looked so I found the E-Pipe's and dove into those. They are pretty darn pricy for the hand carved better ones but I like it.

    Here are a couple of mine:

    If someone has an Airbus A340 that needs an Aileron, they are welcome to the info... lol No worries there.

    The pipes just give a different look, but have the same functionality.

    Just bolted on a new atty today. Aspire Nautilus. It's a little bigger than my Kanger, but the volume of cloud is impressive.

    Nautilus is much better than a Kanger. I jumped into the deep end of this as well and bought a few rebuildables. Pretty easy to do and once you have it not much more ever needed.

    I had a kit that you can buy, not the rebuildable one, but the damn thing started to leak. It was in my truck and when I came out of work one day some of the fluid leaked out and it never got btr. Never the less, I am still smoking.

    Now if only someone could figure out an electronic method for dipping! Haha. On a side note though, any opinions on vaping as a method of easing back off the can?

    On the recommendation of pretty much everybody on Reddit, I bought an ELeaf iStick. Now I need another one. And to throw the other batteries away. This thing is beast.

    Can you get the juice without any nicotine? I don't smoke, nor do I have any use for nicotine, I just love the smell of some of the vapes I've smelt. They smell like they taste amazing, and I feel like I might could use one as an aid to my diet. (keeping my hands busy, playing with the vapor/smoke, keeping my mind focused on not craving)

    Yes absolutely. That's the goal. I started on 18mg nic juice and I'm down to 3mg. A few more weeks and I'll drop it to 0mg.

    qu1cks1lver56, yes, you can get juices ranging from 0 to
    36mg of Nicotine, as well as some that include vitamins/caffiene. I've recently picked this habit up,
    (2 solid months tobacco free) and have been doing a ton of research in my free time.

    I have to admit, i was hesitant at first given the tranistion
    from dipping to vaping. however it's been much smoother than expected.

    Vitamins and caffein? You've got my attention. I might stop by the local vape shop my dad gets his stuff from on my way home from work tomorrow.

    I certainly can't attest to the quality of all juices. But i do have a coffee ejuice with 24mg of caffiene with it. I have another that is blend with B12, echinacea, and vitamin c. neither of which are horrible to vape on.

    That's the thing about it. Juices vary. And there's LOTS of retailers out there. I've been buying from vapor4life.com, my sister recommended mtbakervapor.com which is a much better deal and I think a higher level of quality. So many flavors.

    A B12 blend sounds like it'd be nice. I'm cutting carbs and have a huge sweet tooth, so I was thinking I'd get some sweet flavors and it might subdue the sweet cravings. Plus vaping has become this huge social thing.

    All of the local B&Ms I've been to feel ghetto and run by retards. Plus, I buy so much stuff online as it is, it was natural.

    Also,

    101vape.com is where I have been getting my attys and parts. They have some decent deals on juice as well.

    Thats awesome! Thanks Prime! The one in town has some rather "colorful" employees, but is quite pleasent once you're inside.

    qu1cks1lver56, i have a horrible sweet tooth, and it personally has helped curb mine. Just keep in mind this whole activity is subjective, and your tastes/preferences/experiences may differ from the next.

    I was a pack a day smoker for 15 years

    Got the ecig and haven't had a smoke in 8 months. And don't want one. I'd rather puff on this. I'm on 8 mg and next is 3 then no more nicotine. This thing actually works, recommend to.anyone trying to quit smoking

    Still think I look like a werido puffing on it lol

    I started on the cartomizer style vapes. With those I was back and forth with analogs. Ever since I spent some money and got a few high quality tanks that had replaceable attys and good batteries I've been off of analogs for almost 6 months. It's working great.

    My first setup was an eGo kit that my roommate gave me. Which promptly led to a vision II spinner.. Im actually considering either an iStick or an IPV on this next paycheck. Not sure of the deciding factor yet.

    Can anyone recommend a relatively inexpensive setup that doesn't suck?

    I can highly recommend the iStick. Best battery I've had. Hands down.

    As far as entry level atomizers, I have the Kanger AeroTank and an Aspire Nautilus. Both are relatively inexpensive ($20-35 range depending on who has them on sale). And the replacement attys are about $8-10 per 5 pack.

    The aspire hands down produces more vapor. However, I like the hit of the Kanger a lot more. It's really one of those things where you have to spend some money and find out what you like.

    qu1cks1lver56, I wasnt joking when i said its all subjective. it literally all depends on your preferences. Do you prefer a tighter draw or looser? Do you prefer vapor quantity or taste quality. unfortunately none of this is "one size fits all".

    Prime, thanks for the input. do you have the 20 or 30watt istick?

    20w. I'm not running anything big enough to warrant the 30w.
