So I'm finally making the switch. I just got back from a large vapor place and I'm pretty satisfied with what I bought. It's the eGo, with the pass-through battery. I think I was started with a bit too strong nicotine level, but I can always go down at the refill. I bought two flavors, which I'm completely digging.

I was amazed by this shop. First of all, when I pulled in and went to look at it on Foursquare, one of my two BFFs popped up as mayor! I texted her and she admitted that she switched about three months ago and hasn't had a real cigarette in about two months. She had a flavor recommendation for me, to boot!

So anyway, this place. When I walked in, I was expecting desperation or sadness or weirdness or something. Instead, I discovered it had the passion of a head shop, the employees were evangelical about the health improvements they experienced and have seen from other customers, and they all had this funky curiosity and bent toward experimentation with mixing the flavors, kind of like a high-end cocktail bartender. It was really very fun to be shown the ropes.

I figured this was a good time to switch, as I need to concentrate when I try to alter habits. The kids are now safely in OH with my folks for several weeks, which gives me time to work out the kinks and find a new groove. I'm a highly-scheduled person (coffee 6:10, first cigarette 6:35, etc. -- I drive my own self crazy). I can tweak my schedule now and see what works without having to worry about piling all the kids' schedules in on top of it.

If you're in the central Texas area, I have a shop (and flavor) recommendations. Throw me a PM.

Thren... I'm also using an ecig (21st Century rechargeable and with the liquid). I have been cigarette free for 50 days and I'm loving the health bennies. I can breathe so much better, I can smell again like you wouldn't believe and the coolest part is that I'm diabetic and my A1C has actually dropped from 6.4 to 5.9!!! I know it's from not smoking cause it's the only change I've made since it happened.

Good Luck and I'm sending TONS of MOJO your way. You *CAN* do this. I smoked 2 packs for 44 years so if I can do it anyone can.

P.s. You might also want to check out a website called quitnet.com I was turned on to it by another member here and it's really helped me. Think of an SI type site to support smoking cessation and you'll have an idea of what it's all about. BTW, I'm "TJ1953" there in case you want any help getting around.

I wish more people were open to this experience.
The folks that I know that have done it, and with the quality E-cigs have all been able to stop.

Just think for each cigarette you aren't smoking you are adding days onto your life.

You knew I'd find an app for this. Here are the stats so far:

Analogs (real cigarettes) avoided: 30.78
Money not burned $9.31
Spent on vaping: $70.85
Money saved: $-61.54

I'm going to throw myself a little party (read: double chocolate malt at Dairy Queen) when the saved status zeroes out.

So part of the story behind this involves my recent trip to Memphis. My parents left for Ohio with the kids, and Mr. T and I wanted to visit Beale Street, home of the blues. We got there at around 1 in the afternoon on Sunday. I was tipsy by 3. By 4, I'd been asked to sing a few times at various clubs because I apparently have that kind of face. So I did, and I thought I sounded gawdawful but everybody was drunk and it was fun. Still, my ego got bruised.

I knew it would happen eventually. Smoking does this, right? But Beale Street?

Like most things that bruise my ego, the fact that I cracked on a crucial portamento in an Etta James song just pissed me right. the. hell. off.

Beale Street **AND** Etta James?

Ding goes the lightbulb.

I've wanted to try vaping for a while, and I've wanted to stop smoking for even longer.

My last cigarette was that night, at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. I went 36 hours cold-turkey as a wake-up call to myself (can't explain it, it's just how I roll). When I knew I was about to crack, I went to the vapor shop and told the nicologist (omg, love that) simply, "I broke my voice." He nodded and said, "Dude. Yeah. Let's fix you."

These things helped me quit a 2+ pack a day over 19 years smoking habit pretty easily.

You satisfy both the addiction and the habit as you gradually step down the strengths until you are at 0mg and free from the addiction. Then the tedium of charging and refilling allows you to break the habit.

Then before you know it you are free of the cigarettes completely even if it does mean you end up sitting on the couch eating full jars of Peanut Butter with a spoon.

I'm at 50 days tobacco free as well.
and the ego's are a great brand, bout to pick one up on Friday.
I have a small clearomiser for home, and use the standard cartos when I'm in public.
the tanks make the juice taste way cleaner, but might draw unwanted attention in public

58 days for me. My last one was on May 6th, the day the oral surgeon told me that the spot he'd removed from my tongue two weeks earlier was cancer.

I NEVER thought I would be able to do it, but I don't even want a regular cig anymore... and I don't clear my throat like I used to, and I can breathe better.

Honestly, it probably is saving my life :)

SLHer, I'm still learning the lingo. I have the Clearomi-thingummy, is that what you mean by "tank"? I've seen the metal ones, with the holes punched in, but I don't know what the taste/efficacy difference is between the two types. I do know that the Clearomi-thingummy has these silicone wicks (which you have to replace somehow) which disappear when you put juice in the chamber-doohickey. One of my Clearomi-thingummies was filled at the shop, so when I brought it home and compared it to the unfilled one I freaked, thinking he forgot to put a wick in.

There are apparently meet-up groups for this stuff. My **other** BFF apparently switched too and didn't tell the other two of us. She told me she has some type that's all custom-everything and she has a tacklebox of equipment. I'm not doing that, but I'll go to a meet-up for kicks.

I have the opportunity tomorrow to go up to another town and meet an SIer for a street festival. I kind of want to look ahead and see what vapor shops are in the area to see what custom flavors *they* have.

Maybe I will end up with a tacklebox.

Been vaping for about 5 months now. No cigs since day one and am down to 2-6mg of nicotine (Yeah me!) Currently have 2 ego's, an X6 and a Vamo. Just wait until you discover DCTs. lol

Just discovered a juice called Unicorn Poop...can't wait to try that!

edited for spelling and excitement that another SIer is quitting cigs!

Oh beware that some acidic juices can crack a plastic tank. Here in Tucson there are so many vapors that no one pays any attention anymore except to ask what flavor, talk about batteries/mods, if you use a tank, carto or are a dripper.

good for you!

My last cigarette was on June 17.

I've used the patch and have an e-cig from my local 7-11. I've used it a few times and its come in handy.

I think I'm finally getting used to NOT smoking, but the craving is still there every day.

You can do it. I never in a million years thought I'd quit right now. Never. and wa-la , I just did. No reasons, no scare, no nothing...I just got tired of it.

Congrats Thren!

I need to do this. Badly. I have purchased a few e-cigs here and there, usually the disposable types from Walgreens or convienence stores, never been to happy with them. Seemed way too strong for me...and the fact that they seemed so heavy compared to a real cig bugged me.

Can someone break all this lingo down for me and maybe help me get started? I'm so confused.

Also, anyone have Grave's disease besides me? Smoking is horrible for Graves, but I'm not sure if its because of the 'smoke' or the 'nicotine'.

Should I start a new thread? I don't want to T/j you Thren.

a clearomizer is just a clear tank that has the atomiser inside it.
some have wicks, some don't.
I got the the "vission nano" clearo because it almost never leaks and seemed like the easiest to fill, also cuz it is the same width as my standard cig size battery.
but I'm about to go get an ego battery with variable voltage cuz ....I don't know... its a hobby at this point. so I'll Prolly get a bigger tank too.

been looking at those vamos too ...nice. maybe after the ego-t dies.

stilllovingher, I am really really tempted to get a variable voltage battery too- right now I'm just using a regular 808 mini batt.

And yes, a lot of us get to the point where we're off the cigs and then it just starts being a search for the Holy Grail of vaping which for me- I already know it's TH, TH, TH!!! If I don't get good TH I get antsy and start switching batteries around and stuff LOL. And I like heat with my hit so maybe a higher voltage would work better for me. I just glaze over when people start talking watts, voltage, ohms, and all that crap. I'm not an electrician and I don't want to be one

Also right now with the 808 batteries I'm limited to what stuff I can try on it. The Esmart clearos work very well, but I'd like to try more stuff.

They helped me quit smoking too. They are so much better-and do make you feel better.

I've been using and 808 mini as well...until today!
Just got the Ego VV and a ce4 tank that came with it.
I was needing something new as my 808 was only holding a charge for a couple hours and I found this Ego VV for the same price as my local shop sells the 808's for!

It is AWESOME! I'd recommend giving it a look for anyone interested in VV, but a little nervous about going all out on a high price piece.

I'm still not up for those monster mods, but I'm moving in that direction LOL.

I finally did it...I got a vapor cig kit. It will be a week ago tomorrow and so far I love it. There's a learning curve, but I don't even miss cigs.

Our company's health insurance is changing and will be upping smokers' rates (along with alot of other cost increases -and the sad part - I work for a very large healthcare system but it doesn't help with the new laws) Anyway...

I got the eGo Twist. Went to a vapor shop in my area. Like Threnody said - they are very passionate about vaping and also like she said evangelical about the health benefits. I can tell you I breathe much easier and have from day 1 of using the vapor cig.

I, too, think they started me on too large of a nicotine mix but am planning on reducing it on the next refill. The recommend going no lower than 2 mg of nicotine when you decrease but hell, 25 years ago I quit cigs cold turkey while pregnant, I think I can handle a 4 or 6 mg decrease now. I think my reluctance to quit is the taste and hand-to-mouth habit of smoking, not so much the physical dependence anyway.

Anyway...almost a week and lovin' it! And now, I'm not forcing him, but I am hoping my hubby will jump on this bandwagon too.

There's an online site called The Vapor Girl. She has a chocolate lover's sample pack. She also has Dirty Horchata and Chocolate Covered Raisin.

Shhh. Don't ask questions. Just... oh my God. Go. Go get.

In other news, my BFF got me a batt or mod or WTFever that looks like a Victorian dildo. It's brass and says, "Goodbye, My Master" across the little hit screen (it has a counter!?) when I turn it off. I used a V-Core 2 on it and was put off by the metal taste of the tip and then the V-Core stuck itself together and I couldn't open it for refill.

So I got a single-chamber tank (can't remember the name) and it's a bit better, but I need to get acrylic tips because this aluminum crap reminds me of chewing foil when I had braces for the shock.

ALSO, yesterday I tried the first flavor I'd bought for the first time in two weeks. It's a mild tobacco with vanilla.

Gross. How on earth did I ever use tobacco? I mean that earnestly. Ick, ptui, yuck. I'm going to giving it to the two neighbors and/or their three family members I converted a few weeks ago.

I bought a tackle box for cores, wicks, etc. I don't want to talk about it.

That is all.

Holy crap! Now I feel like I totally missed out by quitting cold turkey.

I want to have a tackle box like all the cool kids. Wah.

I tried a couple of the flavors but really just wanted a taste as close to my cig as possible, which is pretty darn close if I do say so myself. Not going to get into all the accessories (at least I don't think I will - but hey, you never know).

The one thing I wish they had is a mouthpiece that felt more like a real cig...even if they were disposable - like contact lenses - use them for a day or whatever and then throw away and replace. The hard "tiparillo" type mouthpiece is not my favorite.

I've been using an e-cig called Premium. They sell online. They come in all kinds of flavors. The only thing I don't like is the weight but I've gotten used to it.

Here's a link to what I use.

I think...therefore, I'm single.

It is what it is.

Thren you've totally turned into a vape nerd

I have an eGo-C Twist and an iTaste VV V3, an EVOD, a mini Vivi Nova and a couple of iClears. I want to try the mini Protank too.

My favorite juice places so far as ECBlends and Heather's Heavenly Vapes. She does sweet tobaccos really well, and that hits the spot for me :)

I've turned into something of a vape evangelical too- I NEVER thought I'd be able to quit... and I DID.

I have the eGo C Twist as well. I really like it - tomorrow will be a week off the analogs!

I bought a Blu starter kit Saturday and have been using it exclusively since!

I think it's 48 hours now.

I wanted something similar to a cigarette and it seems to fit the bill.

That is the only drawback with the vapor cig I got - it is nothing like a cigarette "feel wise". Taste - yes, but hand to mouth feel - no. But it is working great for me. Friday will be two weeks and I don't even miss the real things.
