My introduction to forum
Hi everyone, I am Jim and was hooked on analogs for over 25 years, NOW ANALOG FREE and it was easy. Several years back i tried to quit using the the 'cigarette' like e-cigs (like blu-e) They were a poor substitute, did not work well and were pain to keep properly juiced (IMHO), so i was back on analogs. I just happened to surf to Vapor Ally's site and was amaze at all the changes in technology. I Contacted Rick (owner?) and he was great. He took some time explaining the new stuff and there differences. He made product recommendations based on my desires and i was very impress he did not push the expansive stuff. Rick-" If your going to give it a try again try a basic set up with a good performing but inexpensive set up and see if you like it. If so we can talk about moving up the line with Mods and other thing.
I got an EVOD, ECO spinner and some juice. Loved it, Easy to use, lasted long time between refills (vs the few puffs i got form the 'cigarette' like e-cigs ) and got very good vapor production and flavor. This was 4/1/2013 and i have been vaping ever since, completely stopping analogs in a few days with only the occasional desire to light up.
So, again Hi to all and a thank you to Rick at vapor ally!
Welcome to ECF! Congrats on your switch tot he vaping lifestyle!
Glad to hear man. Welcome to ECF! You're one of the lucky ones that was able to quit quickly. Some of us take a few months before we put down cigs altogether. Good stuff.
Welcome from a fellow noob! Lot's of smart and/or experienced people here so you're in the right place.
So here's my story, I smoked analogs for over 30 years about a pack and half a day and recently saw a few guys at my work vapping so asked the one what he thought about it and he gave me a run down and let my try a his. I was pleasantly surprised by it but did not give to much more thought about it. I used to get my smokes at a Indian reservation near by and they had some contest going and I ended up winning like $90 bucks from it, when I went to pick up my winnings I noticed that they had started to carry some e cig's ego C4 so I figured what the hell got some free money so I bought one and a bottle of e juice and my carton of smokes. In the first 2 weeks I smoked 2 packs of smokes total I was pretty surprised at how easy the transition was going for me. After the second week I stopped analogs all together and have been analog free since August 16th. I found a descenct B&M locally and started picking up my juices there also picked up a kanger t2 which was ok but was having some issues with going the atty's pretty quickly because of a thicker juice I think, so yesterday I picked up a PT2 mini v2 and I am really enjoying it. I've been reading and gotten a lot of good information here so thanks EFC.

welcome to ECF to both of you ex smokers ... and TY for sharing your stories.
Smoke Free since Sept. 22nd 2013 ... Keep Calm & Vape On
I was really surprised my self! i was a 2 pack a day smoker! When i did get the urge to light up i immediately went to my new substitute and 9/10 the strong desire passed quickly (i was vaping heavily) My trick may have been starting out with 28% nic juices (mixed my own). I started here and reduced the mix by 2% every 4-6 weeks. I am now down to 18% solutions and doing fine.
