    Well, it's been about a year since this thread started - as well as the pandemic picking up steam. How's everyone doing?
    We're doing well so far. My SO's father caught it in the care center where he lives but thank goodness he was asymptomatic. Since then he's been testing negative and has gotten his two shots. We're still waiting for ours. Apparently, when the Governor put "educators" on this list as priority for shots, those of us in higher ed don't fit into that category. We were relegated to getting it when the general public got theirs despite him wanting us open for business. We finally got notice last week that we're now on the list for late March.
    Other than jacking up my SUV running over a big piece of metal left on the highway courtesy of a construction truck tonight, things aren't totally awful. That assessment may change when the guys at the shop get a look at the undercarriage and the twisted piece of metal under there. Also blew out one of my front tires - and I just bought brand new ones about a month ago. *sigh* No one was hurt. That's the most important thing but still... 😞
    Hope to hear some good news from y'all!

    Here in NE Ohio things are steadily opening back up. Retail, restaurants, beauty/barber shops and SOME entertainment venues are open (indoor trampoline parks, bowling alleys, etc.). Movie theaters aren't open yet. Most primary care physicians here are doing telephone visits or video visits.  About 1/2 of the people wear masks in public. I do only because I work in long term care and I don't want to carry anything I may pick up from the general public to the residents. Assisted living facilities/areas are permitted to have visitors but only outdoors. ALL long term care staff have to be tested (and every one is negative) before the facility can re open to visitors coming into the building. (Our testing date this June 26.) We are all screened with temps taken and a health questionnaire prior to clocking in each day. Our facility has had ZERO cases, staff and residents. We are fortunate as several facilities in our general area have had several to many cases among their staff and residents. Life is good!

    While I don't have anything I'm looking to sell, DiscountVapers is a company I've done business with for years now and do not hesitate to recommend for people looking for more inexpensive things. The link below is for their complete kits. The only brand I prefer not to buy anymore is Smok. In my experience, Smok products haven't performed well for me and I find their tanks tend to leak like a sieve. Others my like it but I don't. My preferred brand is ELeaf, although Aspire, Kangor, VooPoo, and Joye eGo are all proven brands. When I started vaping (over 8 years ago now), my first kit was an eGo variable voltage stick battery and a CE4 clearomizer.
    I hope some of this helps a bit. Good luck!

    We just got the "use non-medical masks" whenever you go out order a few days ago, too. My SO was telling his boss that he's thankful I never throw anything away because a few years ago I purchased a box of 50 charcoal infused masks when there was a lot of flu going around. We had them on hand and now they've become very useful. I feel vindicated.  *sniffs*

    They just update the rules for our area today. No gatherings of any kind except those living under your household, no exceptions including religious gatherings. Everyone must wear face coverings now enforced by law enforcement (fines/jail time). Getting pretty wild out there.

    Here all but the essential businesses are closed. The hubby and I are both in health care so we are still working. I'm in long term care and it's getting quite challenging with all the new procedures and so on in place. We have been on total lockdown for 2 weeks now. No visitors in, no residents out, staff screening with temps and questionaires regarding respiratory health every day before clocking in.  We are all wearing masks when in contact with our residents, who are getting restless, bored and some are getting depressed at not seeing family in person for so long. Hubs works at one of the local hospitals. Most nights (he's on midnights) are slow. News reports say the surge hasn't hit us yet.
    In our area we have approximately 50 cases and there have been 5 deaths in our county. with most of those being fragile healthwise before contracting the virus. Fortunately in our city, there have not been any deaths related to this.
    Most people are abiding by the "shelter in place" order of the governor. Communities have stepped up their game in patrolling parks and so on to reduce the small groups that do gather. Restaurants are all carry-out or delivery at this point. We do grocery shopping for 2 weeks at a time and homebodies anyway!

    I'm in Florida now.  It’s pretty much stay at home.  All but “essential” businesses are closed, schools and malls closed. But there are still a lot of people out and about.  Lots of masks.  It’s weird.  I personally am devistated.  I am a music teacher full time no more.  I’m building up an on-line business on the side.  My wife is lucky, she gets to work from home and it’s saving us.  There are a few reports of cases in my area but it’s mostly southeast, Miami area hit the hardest.  My new hobby is fishing.  There is a lot of time for that.  Most in my family are doing fine and can work from home.  We’ll all get thru this but it looks like another month at least.  I really feel for the families suffering thru this.  There are many not so lucky and deeply impacted by this.  Hang in there, folks. We’ll make it.  I don’t know a single person afflicted with the disease but bless them all.

    Personally, it's almost business as usual for me. I work for a government contractor deemed essential. Everyone that puts what we make together is still working. Almost all of the support staff, engineers, planning, and anyone else that doesn't need to physically touch the product to do their job has been given a laptop and told to work from home. The people that are at work range from those that seem to think it is inevitable, and they are going to get it anyway and have not changed habits at all to those that you can't even talk to because if you get closer than 15 feet or so they start yelling to not get too close. One in particular gets nearly hysterical if someone walks in the room she works in, it's approx 20X60 feet and there are 6 others that work in the room, well spaced out.
    All schools, colleges, barbers, etc have been closed. The schools until mid April at least. Auto mechanics, grocery stores, liquor stores (yup), auto parts stores, construction and contractors and a few others have been deemed essential and are able to be open. Small businesses that can be run by one person are allowed to stay open, but must limit the number of customers inside at one time. A couple car garages have closed but not many. Restaurants are take out only no eating in, fast food and coffee shops are drive thru only. The local roads are mostly empty of cars. A few, apparently family, groups of 3 or 4 walking together, way more than usual. I travel I-90 to work and there is slightly less traffic, more trucks, but still a lot of out of state cars.

    The "correct" way of doing things in vaping is whatever works for you. Everyone is different so what works well for one person won't work so well for another.
    If the 25 mg works for you, stay with it for awhile until you're totally off the cigarettes. Once you feel comfortable, go down a little - I would suggest down to 21 or 18. If you go down too fast you'll either wind up back on cigarettes or you'll just wind up vaping more often to get the nic your body craves.

    Your question takes me back some years... anyway, we used to tell people that if you smoked lights, 12 mg would be a good starting place (not salt nic, the regular nic). If you were smoking regular cigarettes like Marlboro reds, then a 24 mg would be a better starting place as that would be a closer equivalent. Does that help?

    Some things to keep in mind is that you'll want to get the equipment that's right for you, the right amount of nicotine content in your eliquid is very important, the desire to stay off cigarettes, and having enough back ups to get you through should anything fail at any time. If you have those things, you'll be just fine.

    I am the type of person that researches new things to death before I start them. I have the safety glasses and gloves were included in the supplies I ordered. Kids and pets won't be a problem. We don't presently have any pets and the kids are now adults living on their own. I haven't ordered any flavorings yet. I suspect that will be the hardest part. I'm not one that jumps form flavor to flavor. I usually find a flavor I like and stick with it for long periods. Unfortunately the flavor I'm on right now is pretty complex and making it would be difficult. It is a popular flavor so I'm searching for recipes for it.

    Tam reacted to Christopher in VENDORS Please Read FIRST before posting - Updated 11/30/2019   
    Vapor Talk allows vendors and suppliers to post on the forum. 
    To post as a vendor: 
    Click Here - This will take you to the group change setting and your My Account panel Select "Vendor" and press the "save" button. That's it! You can now post in the general suppliers sub forum.
    There are two vendor types: 
    Verified Vendor - You are given full, relatively unrestricted access to the forums. You must abide by the Vendor Rules. Verified vendors can also purchase banner advertising, private sub forums, etc. 
    Regular Vender - If you opt not to become an Authorized Vendor, you may only post in the General Suppliers Forum. You must still abide by the Vendor Rules.
    Vendor Rules
    Vendor Guidelines (Read these carefully, failure to do so may result in your account permanently banned. There are far too many requests for us handle account reconsiderations. These rules are fairly typical) 
    You must be an “established” vendor for 6 months, with a website. No eBay, Craigslist or Facebook sellers. Your website must be 100% e-cigarette related and must have Contact information with a valid mailing address, telephone landline number and email. If your website does not comply, and you ignore our request to update it, you will be reverted to “Unapproved Supplier” and will have no rights on the site. No Drug/Dry Herb related pics, videos, posts, links, or Drug/Dry Herb references are permitted.  Vendors, under no circumstances, may post personally identifiable information.  We take the privacy of our forum members seriously. Vendors who make claims that e-cigarettes are a health product, or that they can be used to quit smoking, or that they are a pharmaceutical product, will not be accepted (or will be removed). All forum contact with members must follow forum rules. We expect both our members and our suppliers to act courteously. Contact a Moderator if you have an issue with a member rather than contribute to the problem. You may not under any circumstance use the PM or Personal Messaging system to spam members. This will result in a permanent, irrevocable ban. Do not post any negative material about other suppliers or their products or service or prices, whether they are verified vendors or not . You may only promote your own business or products. You may not compare other vendors’ products (by exact name) unfavorably. Your supplier privileges apply to you alone. That is to say, you cannot transfer those privileges to another, or have multiple members of staff with the same privileges. Only ONE ID permitted to represent the business. Do not have a third party make promotional posts on your behalf. If this is found to be the case both you and that person will be banned. If your website becomes non-compliant you risk being demoted or classed as Unregistered. We occasionally review vendor websites. If we have multiple reports that your service or products are faulty, and you do not resolve these issues, we may revoke your registration. If we have a report of a serious infringement of our Rules, or of the law, or of an action that will bring Vapor Talk or the industry or the community into disrepute, or place Vapor Talk at risk of legal action, we may revoke your registration. Pay your fees on time No suppliers who trade exclusively or extensively[1] as affiliates[2] or drop-shippers[3] are allowed as Authorized Vendors at Vapor Talk. Such suppliers if identified will be banned without warning. Vapor Talk, like most honest forums, intends to support and protect the trade, and does not regard web marketers with multiple interests (or possible multiple interests) as members of the trade proper. Sales and Promotions (General Suppliers Forum) – limit 2 threads per week – posting more than 2 will result in merged threads and/or removed threads No coaxing or bribing other members to “tag” you so that you can post vendor forbidden content. As things change and situations arise, all of the above rules are subject to change. What all of this essentially boils down to is treating customers right and preventing spam on the forum. If you would like to promote, spam, or market your business do so only in designated areas.

    Public health expert on e-cigarette panic
    Researchers are working hard to determine the cause of more than 500 reported cases of lung illness affecting e-cigarette users. But even before this outbreak, e-cigarettes divided the medical community. Public Health England describes e-cigarettes as "at least 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes" – a claim New York University professor David Abrams agrees with. Abrams tells "CBS This Morning" Tony Dokoupil why he's concerned about what the current panic about e-cigarette safety could mean for public health.Sept 20, 2019
