New Members and New Vapers • Re: Tell us your story

I started smoking socially/casually when I was about 13. It started out as a rebellious, "cool" thing to do. Then regularly when I was 15… I had a friend whose dad would buy him packs. Then by the time I was 17, I was addicted thanks to having boyfriends that were 18+. I was a pack a day <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>smoker by the time I hit 19, at which time I was working in call centers doing inbound tech support for various ISPs (anyone that’s been there knows that just about anyone that works these jobs are chain <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>smokers, terminal pot heads, or serial alcoholics… the job is stressful enough to pretty much demand it).

Over the years I tried every smoking cessation method I came across. Not just the FDA approved ones like gum, patches, Wellbutrin, etc. but I also tried Snus, hypnosis, magnetic earrings, cold turkey, slowly cutting down, etc. but I never seemed quite able to do it.

When I was about 25 I’m guessing… I think my son was around 1 year old… my neighbor got duped by one of those free e-cig trial offers. I warned her a little too late that it was a scam… she had already given them her credit card number. This was back when the only legitimate e-cig anyone really knew about was Blu, and those were e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e. I really wanted to try them but I didn’t know if they were actually worth the investment, so she loaned me the one she got scammed in to for a few days so I could test it out. It was horrible… the air intake was in the threading, which didn’t align properly if you screwed the atty on tightly and made it impossible to draw on it, so you had to keep it loose if you had any hope of getting any <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>vapor out, and the cartridges didn’t last long at all… but fortunately as a technology geek I was smart enough to recognize poor quality tech when I saw it and didn’t allow myself to judge e-cigs as a whole based on that one product, and saw enough promise in that product despite all its flaws to know that with a properly designed e-cig there really was promise in me being able to quit smoking with one. However, it did make me hesitant to spend so much money on a Blu when I didn’t know if the cartridges were just as short lived.

About six months to a year later one of my friends was talking about how he quit smoking with e-cigs and told me all about Totally Wicked and how their prices were a lot better than Blu and what good quality their products were, how great their customer service was, etc. Through his direction I ended up purchasing a Titan Tank, which was hard to refuse at its ultra low pricing in comparison to the Blu e-cig. I loved the Titan Tank and with it I immediately got to see just how cheap vaping could be in comparison to smoking, but I also almost immediately became dissatisfied with the amount of <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>vapor I was getting out of it and started wishing I could get more of a hit off of it… and that kept me from quitting the analogues. I then tried a VV APV at a flea market and was blown away by the realization that there WERE devices capable of giving me the kind of hit I was looking for, and not long after that purchased my first VV APV, a Torpedo VVV. After about 6 months of trial and error with gradually cutting back on the analogues, I was completely 100% <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>smoke free, using CE2 clearomizers as my delivery system (which I have to admit I miss sometimes because it was kinda fun to use a syringe to refill ’em, made me feel like a mad scientist, hehe).

Now days I mostly rely on an Evic paired with a Kanger ProTank.

General Vaping Discussion • Re: What unusual e-liquid flavor have you tried?

Hmm… I suppose some of my favorite flavors would be considered "weird" to some people although they’re kinda commonplace flavors in the vaping community…

Fruit Stripe (like my favorite childhood gum) I like to add menthol to it too which makes it even weirder, hehe
Ecto Cooler (i.e. that Ghostbusters Hi-C flavor, which I just so happen to be vaping right now) I add menthol to this one too
There’s an RY4 I get that is black licorice and anise flavored… it’s pretty odd to me but I absolutely love it!

As a long time member, you should know by now that when you ask what is a simple question you are going to get a "freaking" multitude of answers!

And all of them correct in their own way <img src="http://e-cigkissimmee.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/46b7b2e190_icon-mrgreen.gif” alt=”:mrgreen:” title=”Mr. Green” />

General Vaping Discussion • Re: Looking for help selecting my very first RBA!

it pick up some cable and a small sheet of 400 or 500. It will help getting the wick right so you wouldn’t have to manually roll all of your wicks. And cable wicks like a beast. I would have never tried it but a friend sent me some pre cut to try and I dont think I will ever be using just mesh again.

Yes I did Ms. P,

And I thank you for the info you found for me!

Sadly, so many shiny things and so few $$$$$

I cannot speak as to the <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>vaporskins as I have not used them. But I have heard that they are a quality product.

I did however install a Jwrap on my Vamo.

Even though I am a clutz with more than my fair share of thumbs, I was able to do an absolutely perfect job with the installation!

It is a very forgiving product.

If I can do it, I have no doubt in my mind about your success!

Thanks Complexed your vote makes it 3 people so for sure looks like I’m getting the RSST I might have to pull my old pool cue out of the closet & hustle a few games just to get a few extra bucks so I can buy 1 & still get some e-liquid.
