First I would like to point out that I have smoked cigs for 24 years.
I started at 13.
I tried vaping early on around 2009... it worked for about 2 weeks, back to cigs.
I got serious about vaping in early 2019. When I spent $80 on a device, and some E-Juice. 6mg... I was vaping like crazy. I went online and bought 12mg E-Juice. tried a few flavors, and settled on Vanilla.
That was April. I have had 12 cigs since, 7 of those cigs, is when I left my house, and 15 miles into my trip realized my vape wasnt with me.
So I bought a pack for $10.80
And a lighter...
that was 2 months ago.
I have zero urge to smoke cigs. and the smell, turns me off. The taste of a cig is disgusting.
I prefer to vape.
Now, with all the news about vaping and all the sudden deaths and illnesses? ALL of that can be attributed to THC, and black market (read home made juice)
Vaping has been a thing in the US for over 10 years, and no one cared. What changed?
Juul. Suddenly big tobacco comes onto the scene and all of a sudden vaping is bad.
If you like me that tried the gum, preferred to roll up the patches and smoke them... try vaping. Go to a local vape shop, tell them how much you smoke, and you wanna try it, with a refillable 'mod' (their called mods - the devices)
Local vape shop set me up with a aegis Legend (a virtually indestructable mod) and some juice...they show you how to put it together how to prime your coil, and how to make it work.
Ya you can save a few bucks by doing it online, but, if you never done it before, the store is worth it. Trust me. If you want to quit, this is how. Go to the store, buy a mod, and let them walk you thruogh priming, and what not.
Is it cheaper? Yes and no. So for me, I can buy when I have the cash, and float thruogh shortages with out it going stale.
my next batch of juice will be 6mg, as I want to become smoke/vape free.
the batteries (2 sets) (one to charge one to use) charger, coils (1 coil last 30 days) and the juice... so the mod itself was like $60. I get coils in packs of 3. 1 coil $5. a bottle of juice (100ml) lasts 30 days... $15..
the upfront cost is high, but theres no on going costs. for instance I spent a few hundred (under 500) before summer on batteries, chargers, juice, tanks, and coils. I have enough coils and juice to last till maybe feb... but with all these talks of bans on flavors?
I am buying enuff juice to last me the next 3 years. Seriously.
I bought a mod, to fit my lifestyle. I needed one that was virtually indestructable.... my sister, she has the Grip... she loves it.... it doesnt work for me, or my lifestyle. your options are endless with vaping. I use Falcon coils... they worse for me, I like their one button open tanks... other tanks, you unscrew the top to refill, the problem I found, is you may unscrew the coil leading to a mess...
If you smoke, full flavor 1 pack a day
try Nic Salts
If you smoke lights 1 pack a day
Sub Ohm tank, 12mg juice. 18mg is rough... 12 mg is SMOOOOTH
For the rest, try 6-3 mg juice.
I really like Killer kusterd myself.
And theres groups on facebook... If you want trust links I will post.
