Cheers for the advice folks, ill order up a selection stuff and have a wee play about.
Im very pleased about the battery life on the riva, still vaping very nicely 24 hours later!
Leftfeild, have you had any experience in vaping in public? i.e buses, trains, pubs e.t.c..?
Congratulations over there in Scotland
You will probably feel great the first couple days, then you'll start to feel the withdrawal from all the extra chemicals they add to normal ciggies. Day 3 I found was tough on my body, but I could easily resist a smoke. Get lots of rest if you can, remember to drink extra water as vaping can be dehydrating on your body.
Juice wise, shop around. I personally don't like LF juices myself but they are awesome for starter kits as most know around here. You will find different vendor's juices are just that different. Some more powerfully flavored then others. I'm sure someone has mentioned, but take a scroll on the main board of the forum. Towards the bottom there is a large list of vendors that ECF recommends because they are known to be good vendors in general to do with customer service. There is also the vendor location by the name and a quick link to their websites. Everyone's taste is different so it's hard to tell you one vendor or another.
Keep up the good work and you'll be feeling great in no time!
I can't speak for Leftfeild but I vape in bars and stores quite a bit. Big stores, few people say anything. Some people are interested and ask questions. The bar can be tricky. If it is your home bar I would ask out of respect. My home bar i caught the owner around and he didn't mind at all. Other bars I just start vaping and sometimes the bartender gives me the "Omg are you smoking!?" look. I quickly tell her, no no its electronic don't worry there is no smoke, laugh and they don't seem to mind.... so far. *crosses fingers* Its fun to get to "smoke" with your beer when everybody else has to go outside, at least in my state it's like that.

I can't use my ego out in public if I don't do it stealthily. I've been stopped by the police just walking to work and they had me standing there for 20 minutes asking over and over if I'm doing or selling drugs. Pain in the...

I use this Electronic cigarettes UK –buy Electric cigarette or E-Cigarettes online when I know I'll be out in public for a long time. I have a white battery and a red LED and one guy once even asked me for a light thinking it was real. Riva is great but it can give you some attention which can be really annoying. The smaller Kr808 from jac fits in my sleeve hidden in my hand so all you can see is the top of the cart if you look really close if I want to stealth.
Best advice is be discreet if you do it inside. The longer you hold your breath the less vapour there is. If you blow the vapour through a napkin or press your sleeve up to your mouth and blow through kinda hard there's no vapour at all. Easy to stealth that way.
If you're outside it doesn't really matter but you know what it's like, everyone who notices is going to ask you about it haha. You'll need to make a decision of whether you're ok with random attention for using it or if you'll stealth. Be ready with what to say to people if they ask though, police especially just because they might pull you up. Just say it's an electronic cigarette (I mean, tesco is selling the disposeable ones now, they should know they exist) and it's a more expensive one that doesn't look like a cigarette if you get any hassle, it's true and all they really want to know.
I do use my ego in public at work, and sometimes some weirdos come up and bug me about it. Usually no one says anything though and my boss is cool with it and is all for vaping.
When you see all the tar coming up keeps you away wanting that ciggy, no? hehe. Glad you are starting to feel better!
