    Seen a few out n about.

    I managed to piss on an old mates chips at Xmas when he pulled out his 901 in the pub, trying to show off. I got my eGo T B out, had a quick puff and blew a monster of a vape ring across the room to turn the tables on him

    Hippie On Hill has it bang on the money there. I catch up with mates and family on Skype with a pint and Vape the whole time. I can go through a Vision full in a couple of hours if that. Still, you have to remember it's a pleasure like drinking or whatever. Like it a lot and you'll have to pay for it. I don't restrict myself, I enjoy it. Drink, Vape and hang out, either cyber-wise or in real life. Same as anything really.
    Got a few nice sounding samples last week but they're largely shite. Don't let the names fool you. There's marketing at play here just the same as anything else. You need to try a few until you find one you like and Vaping will be easier. I Vape one called Golden Burginia. Kind of a nutty, warm Vape and I've found my favourite. Friends that have had a go or even just caught a whiff have been sold on it. Wish I was on commission at the shop I use!

    Craving more accessories/mods now though. It's an odd little hobby.

    any recomendations for a good strong menthol but low MG (6-11mg)
    and not sure where to buy in the uk.i want ready made, i cant be arsed mixing my own.lol
    im using 3-4 fills a day? is that alot.
    anyway loving the fact i dont stink of smoke..
    I use the arctic menthol flavouring. Add a few drops to a 5ml bottle (already menthol) and it will blow your head off, in a good minty way.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Just read the whole thread and I'm not even a smoker lol. I think I'm gonna direct my brother here in the hope it'll give him and his wife a kick up the arse in regards to quitting. Might even have a go myself, I like the sound of those flavoured ones. I have 2 questions :-

    1. They both only smoke about 5 a day each, any idea what the cost per week would be for them after the initial outlay ?
    2. Is the ego-c still the best one to go for and does it come with absolutely everything needed to get started ?

    Cheers,

    1. I used to smoke about 15 rollies a day. Now I vape around 1.5ml of juice a day, maybe a little more. 30ml of juice costs 12.49 from liberty-flights, so that works out at about 60p a day. If you buy from China it will probably be less.
    2. Having started by buying a cheap unbranded starter kit, I would recommend buying something decent and branded. I started with cheap batteries and atomisers. The atomisers would leak all the time so I moved to clear cartomisers which while better would crack easily. Both my batteries died so I replaced them with Riva batteries which are so much better. I also now use a ego vision clearamiser which are so much better than standard atomisers or cartomisers.

    The trouble with being a new vaper, is it is tempting to buy cheaper equipment to see if you can manage the switch from real cigs to vaping. But if the equipment is rubbish, its easy to decide that vaping is rubbish and switch back to cigs. I am so happy I stuck with it and have now found the combination of equipment which is good and reliable. It cost me a lot to get to this point but I totalled up what I have spent and it is half what I would have spent on tobacco and now I have a lot of it, I wont need to spend out on it again for a while.

    I dont know what is in the ego-c kit but you will need:

    batteries - at least 2 so you have a spare charged up and ready. I have 3
    charger - I have 2 so I can have a battery on charge at home and one on charge at work. Then I use the other one
    atomiser - The ego vision clearamisers are brilliant. I dont know how long they last as they are new to me, but my current one has lasted 2 weeks so far.
    Juice - A mainly PG juice at around 18mg would be best for a new vaper imo. I disliked tobacco flavour when I started and switched to menthol but there are hundreds of flavours to choose from.

    OK .. this seems like a minefield.

    I was thinking about buying a kit for my missus, she's pregnant and she smokes around 15-20 a day of Silk Cut Silver so obviously I'd like her to stop but wondered if vaping would be even worse for the baby?

    If its ok not sure what setup to get her or whether there is a mix that would be similar to such a weak brand.

    Any advice would be really appreciated.

    If I was you I would make her quit full stop! And if you smoke give up with her, if there is anytime a incentive is needed, having a baby is the best. Good luck

    Vaping will not harm a baby inside a pregnant lady. I state my reputation as a doctor on it.

    I gave up 8 years ago and understand what your saying .. but in reality, smoking is not really the greatest concern with her health due to reasons I don't want to get into here .. but thanks

    That Scott fella has loads of videos on his YouTube channel igetcha69 and e-cig-reviews.com

    I use the silicon replacement caps for the tanks instead of the hard plastic ones in the vid btw so i don't have to fiddle about with any syringes as the silicon ones are easy to remove/replace and the seal to the wick is tighter so there's less chance of leaks.

    There isn't any particular normal eliquid that will hit the spot as it's the cravings for all the other 4000 or so chemicals that's making you think there's something lacking or missing. Within a month or so tobacco is going to taste so nasty you'll be wondering why you ever liked the taste in the first place.

    That being said DK-TAB is probably the most tobacco like dekang liquid I've tried so far
    took your advice, and all the better for it, have stopped thinking of this as smoking. i have tried so many varinats now and am pretty much happy with HS Delight as my neutral tobacco flavour but mostly vape on Energy Cow, Blueberry and just started Cola.... hardly touching the HS Delight anymore

    i carry both e-cigs with me at any time, one with HS delight and then another of the above, i ususally end up swapping the battery around when i run out though

    3 solid weeks without a cig now, and not even craving one!!
