Oh, and as for flavors. The watermelon sucks. (that was my last gamble) I've tried a few different ones, mixed a few, but at the end of the day, Toro Rouge which use to be energy cow, which is has a red bull flavoring to it is my favorite. Every now and then throw a bit of Cherry into it to mix it up. But try a few different ones, see what works for you.

I'll be down there Thursday to get another bottle or 2 of juice, I can meet you there if you want. Also, if you think the neck lanyard is dumb.. you have to much money. I've broken... 5 or 6 batteries. My wife calls mine my binky.. I get all torqued out of shape if I don't have it.

Pay attention to what you eat and when. If you don't work out or watch what you eat you will get fat. Really fat while trying to quit.

My wife tried the ecig. Made her throat sore. Still smokes like a chimney. I quit almost 12 years ago because I was ready. Cold turkey. Was it hard? Yes. At this point in time I feel the best choice I ever made was to quit smoking. I cannot stand the smell of smoke now, but really like the smell of a freshly opened pack.
Whatever you try, good luck and stay the course, you will not regret it. I have never heard anybody say they wished they still smoked.
Chantix made my wifes blood pressure goofy too. The doc told her to stop using it.

Backwoods Sweet were great, loved em, but losing your breath after a flight of stairs was enough for me.
Chantex worked and have not looked back. It's been 5 years and I don't even think about it anymore.
For your health and long term effects of smoking, quit, you'll thank yourself later.

The money saved going cold turkey isn't enough motivation? I thought I had read a while back you were becoming super motivated to pay off your house. That would be what, an extra $150-160 a month off the mortgage?

I quit by eating a cigarette butt.

After throwing it back up, I was done.

Lady: Do you smoke?
Guy: Yes I do.
Lady: How many packs a day?
Guy: Three.
Lady: How much per pack?
Guy: Ten dollars.
Lady: And how long have you been smoking? Guy: 15 years.
Lady: So one pack is $10 and you've been smoking three packs a day, which puts your monthly spend at $900. In one year it would've been $10,800. Correct?
Guy: Yes.
Lady: If you spend $10,800 a year, not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts your total spend at $162,000. Correct?
Guy: Yes.
Lady: Do you know if you hadn't smoked, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after calculating compound interest for the past 15 years, you could've by now bought a Ferrari?
Guy: Yes. Oh! Do you smoke?
Lady: No.
Guy: Then where's your fucking Ferrari?

Probably depends on what part of the country you're standing in or if you're in Canada.

joyetech is the only battery I use and I buy everything from boosted vaper, they have a store on Gratiot and 16 mile. web site is boostedvapor.com. good people and know the product and they blend the flavor right at the store with u.s. nicotine. they have around 130 flavors, offer 0mg-36mg nicotine, add more flavoring than most brands, just good people. their standard blend is 50-50 of PG & VG. I've tried other brands of liquid and they were just blah, lacked the flavor i'm use to. they have a kick ass watermelon !! oh and you can sample everything first, big plus in my book.

I have a ecab, eroll, 3 eGo-c 650, 3 eGo-c 1000, 6 vivi mini nova tanks, 2 mini davide tanks and a bunch more I can't think of off hand. it's a new hobby for me and quit cigarettes 5 months ago. all I vape is 36mg, have around 35 flavors. I like the top feed tanks for tobacco flavors and bottom feed for everything else.
top feed is a warmer vape and I think tobacco flavors don't burn out the atomizer as fast. they last about 1 month verse 1 a week with the bottom feed, but that's just me..

eGo twist is a nice starter or the e-vic. if I ever get a mod, the e-vic will be my pick. has a lot of features if your into that kind of think. you can even hook it up to your computer and your usage data lol

I know its not the advice you want, but just fucking quit.

You're replacing one bad chemical with other unknown chemicals.

Look yourself in the mirror and decide if smoking is something you really want to do and is worth it or not. The only person who can put the cigarette in your mouth and light it for you is you.

Just quit. Decide you want to quit. Decide you are committed to quitting and quit. Don't make excuses, dont smoke because you had a bad day, or because it goes well with a beer or because mzjg jsut gave yout he best lay of your life or because she pissed you off or any other fucking reason, just decide to quit and quit.

This might seem a little on the crazy end but if you haven't tried them, then you wouldn't understand....I wish I could find one that was lighter and didn't have such a hard "filter" area.

i truly wish it was that easy. like i said in an earlier post, i've given up many bad habits in the past and have failed with going cold turkey on the cigs every time no matter how mentally determined i felt.
i've been smoking for 28 years and the only thing that has truly helped me quit was chantix but it gives me mean and very angry side effects and thats just not me. i can't handle being mean and pissed off for months at a time.
so, finding a good high quality alternative sounds like it may be a step in the right direction.
after looking online at 100's of reviews and numerous different e cigs i feel like i'd be ok with dropping some extra cash on a quality unit.

any of you have any experience with the ProVari? worth the cash? i like quality and the feel, construction and function is very important.

i personally spend over $200 a months in cigarettes and feel if it helped me quit, it would pay for itself in a month. i'm also on the fence about buying a used one on ebay for the fact i don't like the idea of smoking something god only knows who or what had their lips on.

Walked into breakfast with the old man in Caledonia yesterday, old lady was huffing on one of those. Threw me off because she was holding it like a hookah pipe

I was surprised that I couldn't smell the smoke at all from Curbdog's e-cig on saturday.

I'm impressed, but curious about possible side effects (mostly long term?)

I hope you quit the itch. I'm trying to get my mom to, she keeps coming up with excuses. Now it's after the wedding. previously it was her 50th birthday, new years resolution
