I am a little slow on the up take but willing to slowly learn. I do not even own a cell phone because I get lost in all the jargon. My main quest currently is to finds 4 or 5 flavors I like, I have about 20 on hand to try. I think I need to learn how to drip because a cartomizer for each flavor is not going to cut it.

    I have cut down on smoking cigarettes the past couple years, so after smoking for the best part of 60 years, I was only smoking about 24 per day. Back to the e-cig saga. After two days with these contraptions in my hands, I realized I had only smoked 10 cigarettes per day. On the third day, I ordered a Volt starter kit from Smokeless Image.

    My accidental journey into vaping began.
    I don't think you're an accidental vaper - your lovely wife was trying to tell you something by 1st getting the disposable e-cig and when that didn't work, she took the time to find another set for you to try. She's a keeper! Welcome & congrats!

    Congrats and welcome to ecf. I too accidentally started vaping and quit smoking.

    Carto's are OLD SCHOOL!
    There is a method for refilling them to, and cleaning them


    The new hotness are the clearomizers and tanks and on up to the rebuildables

    Just absorb the info for now...keep vaping the cigalikes and work on finding the flavors you like (after a while I got tired of the "tobacco" flavors...I got Roar Vapor "Strapple" and the instant I tasted the sweet goodness I KNEW I would never go back to the stinkies!)

    Go find some PBusardo and grimmgreen youtube videos (personal vaper/e-cig demo gurus) and they will walk you thru alot of the stuff you might be confused on

    Take your time...learn, most importantly work to get off the analogs...one puff at a time

    P.S. If you are feeling froggy and without breaking the bank and while you learn you can jump on an inexpensive eGo starter kit...they will definitely be a step up but below the power house AVP's out there

    I agree she is a keeper. Actually she has been searching for one she could stand because she wanted to quit. I tried them out of curiosity using the stock pile of the ones she did not like. Now I am trying to convince her, she would have better luck not buying the disposables so she can try a variety of flavors at a lot less money.

    Congrats!
    Started on cigalikes too. My first one was a pass-through, 'cause this was the cheapest option at the time. Didn't know any vapers then (don't know many now aswell) to try one. The price of a starter kit 3 years ago was a little bit to steep to just try 'em. I quickly moved on to battery powered cigalikes and then to ego's/evods, because of the bigger batteries.
    If you like your device: Stick with it, to each their own!
    Take your time to make the switch, you're already doing your body a great favour!

    Awesome mate, well done.

    I'm awaiting delivery of some stuff from the USA which will take me from 'playing with e-cigs' to a proper PV kit. Probably a few weeks before it gets to lil' ol' New Zealand. Fingers crossed it gets through customs OK

    I do like the smallness of the cigalikes for going places and I also got the PCC. I am already looking at the larger batteries for home use. This is just after a week of having the kit, just think where I might be in six months.

    After you have the kit in hand, if my experience is normal, the fun and learning really begins. Hope it arrives soon, customs down under can be a pain.

    It's great that you're both on the path to quitting! Even better if you get her to like your set up and find juices that she likes, you can pass it on to her and try something that's maybe a step up? Good luck & happy vaping!
