  1. Happy Trails

    Well, looks like today's the day. April 18, 2913 a friend loaned me one of his rigs to try. 4 hours later at the agreed on meeting spot I gave it back to him. The next day I went out and bought myself a double set ...... 650 batteries and CE4 tanks. That day I wrote the date on the pack I had just opened, dropped it in the console and after 50+ years of cigarettes, I started vaping. Haven't looked back. Within the first 6 months i started diy'ing my own juice. Eventually i worked myself to 0 nic. Been there for over a year, now. Almost got sucked into the "bigger 'n better'n shiny stuff" end of vaping till I realized that's not why i started vaping in the first place. Biggest setup I worked up to was a nautilus sitting on a 40W Eleaf. Lately, till a couple weeks ago, I was back at the basic level with a t3 sitting on a 1100 batt. Caught a cold that migrated to my chest, so everything got put away for a few days. A couple days grew day by day ....... been vape free for the past 3 weeks, so now seems like as good a time as any to give everything up for good. Gotta say it feels very liberating walking out and only checking for keys instead of everything else I used to carry around. So, if you're vaping to quit smoking, I wish you good luck. Just keep that goal in mind and know that it is possible. And, yep that pack is still riding around in my console with the same number of cigs it had in it back in 2013. It's become a conversation piece. Maybe I'll memorialize it in a block of Lucite. So...... Happy Trails everyone. Color me gone.

    I'm not holding my breath.......... http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_CONGRESS_VAPING?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT
  3. NPR disappoints me with this article

    Yup, as long s you don't vape/smoke you're free to put as much crap in your, body as you can hold. I'd bet real money the same people sit around sucking down diet sodas loaded with aspartame.
  4. NPR disappoints me with this article

    Amazing how the folks interviewed continue to piss all over vaping while at the same time saying they really don't know enough, but it's still bad cause they think it is. Wonder just how difficult it is walking around with their heads stuck up where the sun don't shine.
  5. Colored Vape

    Yep, what she said ...... and him ....... and what he said ....... dangerous idea. Methinks the screen name and original question are in direct conflict.
  6. My suggestion would be for you to find a vape store that gives a rats-*** about you and understands the value of customer service for building repeat customers. Evidently the sales guy just wanted to sell you something with no regard for your lack of experience. E-cigarette aren't rocket science, but there is a small learning curve. The above also is directly related to your desire, or lack of, to give up cigarettes. If your goal is to drop cigarettes, then start with an inexpensive entry level rig, learn what's going on and proceed from there. Don't allow yourself to be talked into getting the latest 'n greatest cloud chaser equipment. You've already discovered how expensive and discouraging that experience can be. There are some of us in the vaping community who are still using pretty basic equipment ..... and are quite satisfied. Many vape shops just want your money and send you on your way. Finding the right vape store can be tough, sometimes.
  7. DIY

    Trying to mimic the flavor that got me off cigs 3 yrs ago ....... Johnson creek's autumn crisp. Seems to be a green apple/carmel. sent from my fancy doo dad

    Looking for some opinions......... Who has best apple flavor, either red or green, TFA, CAP, LA? Best carmel? sent from my fancy doo dad
  9. DIY

    Seems we're both pretty much in the same situation. Abused my taste buds for 50 yrs. as well. Guess it's payback time. As long as my mixes don't taste like soap, I consider it a success. sent from my fancy doo dad

    Backwards=flavor getting worse instead of better. Don't care for the hit/harshness of very much pg. Maybe 10% so it won't be too thick. Trying to compensate for the lower pg with more flavor doesn't seem to be working. Or ..... my taste buds are just plain shot. Been almost 3 years now, and I have yet to land on a flavor to get excited about. sent from my fancy doo dad

    Question for you DIY guys n gals. Is there a point in the mix percentages where the flavor starts going backwards. sent from my fancy doo dad
  12. Ming Style or Round? (Drip Tips)

    Sorry Tam, but drilling a hole in a tuit lets all the good juju leak out. Sent from my SM-G900V using The Vapor Talk mobile app
  13. FDA new PMTA FAQ's

    Well, so much for being the "information age". The U.S has become a nation of sheeple. I've just about given up trying to steer someone away from the dark side. I get looks like I'm trying to sell snake oil, or get excuses- "I've heard it can cause pneumonia", "ecig are just as bad as cigarettes", "I'm afraid it might blow up". Ya just can't fix stupid. The U.S and Europe are going in opposite directions with vaping. Just doesn't make any sense. Sent from my SM-G900V using The Vapor Talk mobile app
  14. Ming Style or Round? (Drip Tips)

    Hmmm, timely question. I've been thinking about my drip tip(s) lately. Not so much as to the preferred shape, but where my DT goes during the day. It goes in my pocket, both pants and shirt, on the car seat, on the dash (and on the floor), on table/counter tops of eateries where they're sometimes "inspected" by someone interested, and occasionally on the ground......and in my mouth. Which got me thinking about making a special one just for me with .999 silver. Pure silver has some amazing antibacterial properties, so, since I have the equipment, know-how, and the "want to" I'ma thinking I'm going to make myself a one of a kind DT. Right after I decide on a shape......and source some proper O rings .........and find a few of those "round tuit's" Haven't caught anything from my DT that I know of (yet), but ......... Could be an interesting project.
  15. Something I have noticed....

    A little bit of advice. When looking for VG, try to make sure it is kosher. Don't know what makes the difference, but any non-kosher VG I used from health food stores made the juices taste pretty bad.
