GN is part of the "special" 2%er's. What defines special and on which side of the spectrum he falls in is what I'm not so sure about. Most folks that I know that brag about being smart are not. Some people are constantly chasing their weaknesses. To each their own. All of the things Ive seen you complain about not working for you are not "right or wrong" answers. They are preferences that are different for darn near everyone here. It's personal experience, what has worked for each individual. Start their GN and find what works for you. This hobby doesn't take much talent or intelligence to be successful. It only takes an open mind and patience. The MOST important thing is don't disrespect other users when suggestions are made even if they don't work for you. The only person that looks like a foolish a#s is you when you do so. YMMV
I wish you luck GoodNews on your vaping journey but please don't disrespect others for their efforts.
