    ~Some days it's a bit of a struggle.... but just GOT to 'commit' to it...and never ever look back...of course there are those who are still struggling, as I was and still do*...and I pray for them*..hoping they take it day by day and make it* I truly hope so* especially those who 'need' to for their health* I pray they get there one day soon...it's ok to slip now and then....and one day.....well.....it's just such a great feeling to accomplish and oh the benefits*
    ...For me, so far, especially these last 6 months have been so good...Back then was when I HAD to have just 'one' real cig on those most stressful of days...I have so so many of 'those days' and wow it's hard then....but I took a deep breath...took one of my strongest juices and said "vape" but it's been so long now..I don't think I could stand to even light a real cigarette..and if it were not for the friends and vendors I met here on ECF, I may very well be smoking.....I am so grateful for them and for ECF...* I try my best when it comes to vaping...that's all you can do..your 'best' .....* for now...I am happy and proud to be where I am with vaping...I never would have believed I would 'not' be smoking right now...and yet, here I am...amazing to me....to my family and friends ...even help others to switch...and encourage those who need it too*....oh what a great feeling it is.....wow I have come a long way....

    I can see why you would warn against rubbing it into your eyebrows, as it makes them very damp and sticky, but I've been doing it for a while now and I like it, can't see myself stopping it anytime soon.. I also rub it into my toe nails in hope it will kill the fungus.

    Add Opensource. Nude Nicotine also carries PG free flavors and additives that are hard to find.

    mike, thanks so much for doing this testing. i have been on the fence about applying heat to a finished juice containing nicotine from the start of my diy experience. heat helps me marry pg/vg alone a great deal. beyond that, my flavor, nicotine, and pg/vg base are mixed in the bottle and uc cold 24 min. they are typically ready to vape after a 24 hr. steep and continue to get better with time. the oldest diy juice i have is less than 100 days of age. this juice titrates at the same level as the day it was made. simply stored in a dark room temp closet, i will retest at 6 mos. of age.

    no shame in trial and error. i didn't know there was any other way when it comes to vaping. i learned something here today, applaud your efforts, and await new results. thanks again

    Speak for yourself! Here tobacco growing is strictly controlled, and you can't, legally, grow a couple of plants in your back yard.
    France (the "here") is very stingy with its' licenses for growing tobacco on a large scale, too. It is grown, but not very widely, and I've never seen a field of tobacco sitting beside the road, unfortunately

    Sundodger, I know that quite a few plants can be used as a source of nicotine, not just tobacco. I don't know, however, if they contain the same additional alkaloids needed for WTA.?????
    This would be interesting not only for extraction, but also from the legal point of view.
    At the moment the legal attacks on Vaping are pretty much International, and many countries want it classed as a tobacco product.
    What would it be classed as if the source of nicotine was another plant entirely, and the flavors of a synthetic origin?
    This must be posed as a question in the appropriate section, IMO.

    Better late than never, BUT...

    FL, if you were a smoker, which is the logic presumption, how can you be allergic to alkaloids present in tobacco when you smoked it? This is just a question of curiosity, not at a critic. I just don't understand how you could have smoked ...

    Rather late (it's one of my bad habits, especially important since I stopped smoking, and hardly ever drink... ) to put it mildly, but if you still recuperate the posts on your blog, I must say you've done some super work, and fascinating writing.
    WTA, now available from 3 (as far as I know ,) online stores, has worked wonders for me, so just to put it in place, THANK YOU Dvap, for all your work on WTA.
    I started using it about 12moths ago, when I was chain vaping at 10 mls of more or less 18mg/ml and getting higher, with analog fag cravings, into the bargain. After a week with WTA I realised that this product, in which I had little faith TBH, had secretly reduced my consumtion to 3ml a day.
    Now, still a WTA lover, I use about 2ml a day at around 10mg/ml, DIY juice with unflavored WTA.
    I'm happy, healthier, and just wrote this as a "thank you" letter. As far as I'm concerned, you've done more than a lot of people for the Vapers of this ungrateful (politically viewed!) world.
    Let's just hope we can all legally use Ecigs as we choose, and WTA, in a couple of years! Or I'll be a Pirate Vaper, sure thing!

    OK,thanks for the input. I think I'll branch out a bit and try some of your suggestions. Again congrat's on a job well done posting your experience and hard work. It's people like you that make this forum so enjoyable. I tip my hat to you...

    Cheers, Dvap, although, with Summer coming, I have moved my Nicotine reserves into the fridge. It often gets well over 30C here (S France) and I feel happier with the nic preserved in a fridge, as there's a ban hovering over our heads in semi-permanence at the moment.
    I do hope I can look back at this post in a few years, PV in the hand, but as things go, it looks as if Vapers will become on par with drug users! LOL OMG what a world!

    Wowee! I don't know if I could do that much.

    But seriously, I find that I feel better since I dropped down to a couple of mls a day, than getting through ten or so a day. Also I was in to Evods, so I had to refill 6 or 7 times a day = hassle.
    As for the health side of WTA, I'm sure I'm better off with 2 or 3 mls a day of juice made with WTA nicotine (5% of WTA, 95% plain nicotine), than 4 or 5 times more with just nicotine, but at 15 or 20 mg/ml rather than 10mg/ml with WTA added.
    But I've given up, too, on calculating the health question. It suits me very well, and that's what counts for me

I Value Your Opinion & That Is Why I'm Asking.
    FA was not the first I tried. I used a lot of Flavor West, The Flavor Apprentice, Capellas, Nature's Flavors, a few Hangsen, a few Lorann, a couple Dekang, a few from Vaping Zone. I don't like every flavor that FA makes, and I don't hesitate to use a different brand if I think it's better. Usually, I prefer FA's version.

    Then there's whole diacetyl/substitute subject, 'custard note' ingredients. If you want full disclosure on what you're vaping, it narrows that list down to FlavourArt and The Flavor Apprentice.
