I'm a bit of a gadget addict, so I find myself spending a bunch on new bits and piece to try out. It's all tasty fun so I dont really mind

I've been spending alot over the past 2 months myself. But I've never spent more buying this stuff than I would have if I were smoking. I would have spent about $350/month on smoking, so I'm pretty open...lol! I think I've pretty much run my course. I've gotten the Provari now, and I'm happy with that. And I've found some favorite flavors to vape. I've just ordered a Pila charger. Now I just have to find my sweet spot on carto/tank combination and I'll be set! Which is probably a good thing as the postman is becoming weary of driving down my road! lol!

Well it's almost 7 months now and I think I've settled into what works best for me. I haven't made a purchase except for 2 30 ml bottles of juice (yesterday) since May 23rd and that wasn't really necessary but it is of the one I vape most of the time now, which is about .8-1.0 ml a day. My sit at home daily ecig is the Indulgence from Nhaler with a Crystal Clear carto (510 threads) My on the go driving around and boating outfit is the iGo with Crystal clear cartos from Nhaler, and my stealth mode interior equipment is still the Halo G6. I've tried other cartos but either the ohms are wrong for my batteries or they are just inferior cartos but the G6 cartos works best for me overall. On my indulgence I do have 2 4.7 volt batteries. Some flavors do have a better taste at a higher voltage but most flavors work best for me at 3.7 volts or a little less. I have several of the Echos, which I loved at first but they now leave me cold unless used with the G6 cartos. It's the only bigger purchase I've made that I regret. They're just to hard to draw on with the cartos that I prefer for the bigger batteries.
Vaping is still very satisfying though and a couple times I've actually forgotten them when I left home and it wasn't the disaster that I thought it would be. I'm sleeping better, breathing better and saving money now, plus the weight gain has stopped at about 20 pounds. Now I'll work on that. I couldn't be more pleased!

I am still awaiting the day I have it all nailed down, but fear I will miss the wild ride of experimentation this has brought me so far.
Congrats on your accomplishments!!!

I have been going at this vaping thing for almost 4 months now and still going strong. I have slowed down my spending but only after buying a silver bullet, an ego 18650 mod, a BAM, several empire drip shields, tons of attys, cartos out the butt, 2 tanks, tons and tons of juice, batteries, chargers and drip tips. My current favorite settup at the moment though is my BAM with an MNKE IMR 26650 battery in it, a 1.5ohm bridgless 901 premium atty from empiremods (and a 510 to 901 adaptor) and a drip shield.

I've also spent a fortune in my first 2 months of vaping, but I think that its normal because it takes several attempts to get the right mod for you; the same goes for flavors, as I've bought tons of juices which found its way to the bin.
However, now that I settled on a mod and a few goos juices, I am not spending as much anymore.

Well it's been 15 months now and I haven't bought any hardware for about 6 months and order 60 ml of juice about every 5-6 weeks. I rarely use the tobacco flavored juice anymore (Sorry Halo) and have settled on 2 juices from Ms T as my only ones used much anymore,
It's funny how your tastes change as time goes on. I smoked Winstons for almost 30 years without ever giving a thought to switching. Smokers don't bother me at all and I rather like the smell outdoors but am intolerant of indoor smoking Several of my friends and my kids have tried Ecigs without success but then it took me several tries as well.
This is probably my last update on this thread, just wanted to let the new users know that it does all settle out and it does get a lot cheaper as time goes on and you find that magic recipe and hardware.
