I think I would prefer the slightly extra cost of cartomizers and not have to bother refilling and dripping constantly, even when just sitting in my own place. I don't mind grabbing 10 cartomizers at a time and spending 45 minutes filling them up, knowing that they will last me several days. A lot of people seem to shy away from this because of the inconvenience it seems, but I don't find it inconvenient at all. I used to roll my own smokes (back when it was actually cheaper, before the new tax laws) and that would take much longer in the grand scheme of things. Then again, I am 36 now and much more patient than I was 20... 10... Hell, even 5 years ago. I am at the age where I find "boring" to be comfortable and clubbing is a convenience and something to be enjoyed a couple times a year. :P
    10 cartos should only take 10 minutes or less to fill and replace the caps (for anyone who is new to filling cartos and has done it a time or two). I'll fill 10 cartos in two or three minutes, plus a minute or two to replace the caps (when I take my time). Honestly, it's really quick when you drip directly into the filler. I used to spend so much more time when I used the condom method and can't believe that I messed with that method for about three weeks.

    I tried an analog out today as a test to myself. I haven't smokes in months. I took one drag and coughed my head off. Made my chest hurt like hell. Wow...why didn't this happen while I was still smoking?

    As far as breathing now, long slow deep breaths. I can feel all of my lungs expand to the max. I love it. I sleep so much better now too. I used to snore really bad but hubby said I stopped doing that too. Daughter said that there were nights that I woke her up due to it. Glad that is over.

    I didn't have chest pain when I quit. The only chest pain I experienced was when I vaped too much PG. I just changed the mixture to more VG and it solved the problem. I would say that you are healing.

    Ok, 38 seconds before I began to get light headed. I guess I have a lot more work ahead of me, and a lot more healing.
    I wasn't gonna try this, but I thought why not when I read this msg. 48 seconds, and there's absolutely no way I could have lasted for 90 seconds, like NCC did!

    Because when you were smoking, your lungs were covered with layers of black tar, so smoke couldn't get at the pink underneath the black layers. Now, your lungs have been shedding some of those layers of tar and the healing stage is in progress, so the vapor irritated the healthier layers that no longer have black layers on top of them in your lungs. Just my general theory.... Please correct me if I'm wrong.

This lasted for about a week and got slightly better each day. I would wake up 5+ times a night with a hacking cough, just coughing up this nasty crap. Over the course of that week it began to let up and now I sleep 10-12 hours if I let myself. Of course ambient noises will wake me up, but I am getting a much more restful sleep than I have for longer than I can remember. the new juice I got today has added a bit of a dry cough, but that is because I have increased the PG that I am used to I think. As it is now, any cough that I get during the day or (rarely) while sleeping, is a dry throat cough, usually because something feels like it's tickling the back of my throat. I hear this isn't uncommon however. It's a hell of a lot better than hacking up half a lung 5 times a night though. I know, that's not possible, but it sure felt like it was!
    I get a sore throat and chest sometimes (usually when I use the 5 volt passthrough that produces warmer vapor and tends to burn my throat and chest), and I've found that drinking about 1/2 bottle of water will help a lot to ease that pain. Happened earlier tonight, and it was all sore enough that I couldn't inhale very good, so I drank 1/2 bottle of water, and then I could inhale again, and the flavor was much better.

It's amazing how much better I feel, since I quit 2 months, ago. I've only had the dry cough, but have yet coughed up anything. I guess over time, my lungs will get rid of that old junk.
    Yea, I think the junk goes out both ways. I coughed up phlegm on three different days during my first 10 days, and after that, I had diarrhea some without having any flu symptoms. The biggest effect I've had is not being able to sleep. I'll sleep for 4 to 6 hours, then be awake for several hours, sleep 4 hours, etc. Will be glad when I get back on a normal sleeping schedule. It's been two months for me (this Tuesday), so anytime now would be fine with me.

    When I first started vaping, I could only inhale slowly on my pv for about 2 seconds. Now almost 6 weeks analog free, I have no problems taking long, slow inhales. My lungs are feeling great! It is really amazing how fast your lungs start healing after giving up those nasties.

    Well that is the case now with the new carto's I got. But with the Joye 510 carto's you either have to use the condom method or use a syringe, and using a syringe lasts way longer, but is also a long process, especially with thicker juices. Now that I have these Boge soft caps, it's a much quicker process.

    Yea, I'm aware of having to use a syringe to fill the Joye 510 cartos, condom method, or drip into the threaded end hole, but I'm not interested in buying them because they're plastic, and I didn't like the taste from the eGo Mega cartos, so I figured I wouldn't like the Joye 510 cartos.

    From now on, I'll try to remember to specify that I'm talking about the Boge 510, KR808D-1, and 4081 cartos when I explain how I fill and refill them.
