    Welcome to the thread and hope you come back often.
    Hey TX...Glad you got the twist-it's super when it works; my first one died (may it RIP) after only a couple of days - I've the new replacement now & am keeping my fingers crossed. I have seen various posts here where there were problems w/them; they seemed to indicate that it was mainly w/the stainless ones, but, mine was black - oh well! I've now ventured into the world of cartos & clearos. I've only used the ego-t & c up to this point. Don't know if I've come full circle or just going around in cirlces!! What do you use on yours?
    Oh-oh-oh......I just got a sub from m&p but I'm afraid to change the carto in it; that's hi-tech class 101!

    Smoked on and off for around 40 years. More on than off. I was diagnosed with COPD when I had a really bad bought of breathing problems. Of course I kept having them and they came more often over the following years.
    Even so I had no intention of quitting. Over three years ago, I got my first ecig for the purpose of using it while visiting my daughter. I figured it was something to get me through until I returned home where 5 1/2 cartons of analogs awaited me.
    I was at my daughter's for three weeks and it became obvious that vaping worked. By the time I got home, I was feeling the health improvements: No more inhaler. No more Advair. It was so obvious that vaping worked.
    I can't say that there haven't been any frustrating moments over the last 3 years but I've stuck with it and have been analog free since March 20,2009!!!

    Last few day 2 or 3 tobaccos.

    Love the Volt and getting more used to the 555 juice.
    Like a little VG in my juice as it produces more e-smoke and smooths the TH for me.

    I can say of the times I have tried to stop smokeing tobacco this is the first time I know it will work.
    Im just letting my body make the changes on its own as It is starting to like the Vaping more than the Tobacco


    Tx thanks for starting this up. I may be new but I have learned a lot and want to help anyone who is willing to accept it.
    Thanks elbertdee and glad you found the thread. I too have a volt and it about the best cig size pv I've found. I don't use it much because I prefer the bigger batteries but it does work good. Many if not most new vapers like to start with a cig size pv so your advice to them will be valuable.

    Wow great story jj2. What did you do with the five cartons? Three years cig free is awesome. You have me beat by 8 months! You will have to come back and share your journey of what pv you started with and how you got to what you use now.

    Bless your heart! I'm 17 & smoked for almost 50 yrs.; math wiz (class 101).
    Umm, well I'm almost 71 and smoked for better than 50 years. I started smoking somewhere around 12 years old when I figured out that I could swipe one of my dads cigarettes and make the Tourette's ticks go away, and I continued to smoke until I was 69 years old.
    My first PV was an eGo-T, and I can't knock them ... they were successful at getting me off cigarettes. I have since found that there are an abundance of different ways to enjoy vapimg. My problem is that I enjoy them all! Seems like I'm always wondering what a flavor will be like if I put it in a -------, and just have to try it.

    Right now I am using the P18 with brass top and button. That looks so slick. It is my favorite. With the 18650's it gives me enough. The second one is the P+18500 in satin finish. Love that one also. Use it for around and about. The last one is the Shockwave. Is still in production but should arrive soon. Can hardly wait The design was done about one year ago but Super-T just got to the production phase shortly ago. Was to busy meeting our other needs hihi.
    And those combined with the Genisis is vaping heaven for me.
    I started on atty dripping but I blew them in one day. Inexperience played a big role in that.
    Went on to cartomizer. Well they worked for max 3 days and then got all clogged up. I tried all kind of cleaning procedures as posted by so many. Nothing helped. I was getting devastated.
    Then the first Tanks gome along. Reviews report leaking over and over so I decided to wait until that improves.
    Then the Genisis appiers here at ECF. Wow rebuilable atty. My dream.
    Now I can set whatever ohm I want. Use a kick and I don't even have to care about that
    The great thing is that since I am not using the kick always I set varios ohms for varios needs like taking the flavors ino account.
    Of course that can only be done with more then one Genisis. I have 4 and all in use.
    And talking about savings. As cheap cartomizers are they can't beat a sheet of mesh with a roll of kanthal.
    Guess one can see how excited I am with my setup.
    In the end it does not really matter which mod you use as long as it keeps us of the cigarets. That I wish for anyone.

    I'm using a Riva-T tank which is basically a ce2 with the metal jacket over it with windows. I think it is similar to what some call an F-1. It works real good thouh. I wish I would have got a 650 though being as this 1000 is pretty long. I use other 1300 batteries like the Go-Go and a 1300 auto Echo but they are much shorter than the 1000 twist. I also got the black one and the only other complaint is it is really hard to see the numbers with my bad eyesight, I need new glasses. lol

    Hi, everyone!! I just celebrated my one year vapeversary!! I smoked for nearly 40 years, knew I had to quit. I had been lucky for too long, no smoker's cough, no breathing trouble, no discernable problems. I hope my luck holds out... The day I picked up an ecig was the day I had my last ciggie.

    I started with Greensmoke. I returned it, but it showed me that was possible to quit smoking with vaping, I ordered a few ego batts and lr cartos, and I was set for a while. I kept reading about VV vaping, so, of course, I had to try it. I ordered a VV boxmod from MV, and melted it the first day, LOL. I did some well needed reading about ohms, voltage, and amperage, and got most of that sorted out. I decided to start diying my own juice right about the same time. I realized that I am a "flavor junkie".

    I vape only on VV devices now. I am particularly drawn to the custom wood mods. I also use carto tanks exclusively, and I have a collection of about 30 different tanks filled with various flavors. I am very satisfied with my vaping experience right now, until the next thing comes along...

    Hi everyone. Been lurking in the other thread for sometime now and thought I would introduce myself. Have been a smoker for over 50 yrs and vaped and smoked for three. Recently had a stroke and was told "no more ciggies". My neurologist recommended e-cigs. That was doable for me and here I am two months and 19 days without an analog and getting along just fine with the help of my Saber Touch and Chuck and WTA. You are a great group and I love the stories you tell.

    Nice to meet you, Apple. That's great that you're totally off the ciggies now.
