    Default SUPER NOOB ALERT!! What am I missing??

    Hey guys...

    I'm somewhat new to vaping, but as much as I want to take a huge drag on the thing, I still feel guilty, like it will hurt, (or at least not be too good) for my lungs! (Even though I use 0 nic. almost all of the time!!) I guess I can't just get my MIND around the fact that this is mostly WATER VAPOR!! What am I missing here??

    Started with a Vapage U-Turn....650mah, (can choose little or big hits) but don't like the bulkiness of the thing.

    Am happier with Halo and Vapage batteries. (Check out Halo's colors! AND both Halo AND Vapage have lightning fast shipping, and Halo's shipping is super low!! Like $3.00 for a BUNCH of stuff!)

    Bought the juice on Ebay from US sellers...made by some 'Joes.' This last batch of bottles have very THICK liquid. Am having a hard time filling re-fillable cartomizers because of that (not clearomizers.) I have the clearomizers, but rather like the cigarette feel of Halos and Vapages. (Sorry!) I keep one in my teeth when vaping.....and in fact, even now as I'm typing... hehe... like I've got a straight candy cane in my teeth!
    Bite marks 'a plenty on my cartomizers...having a blast, btw...

    Any suggestions, kind criticisms, or comments are appreciated.

    And, by the way....Did you ever have a BURNED, FIRE hit with a clearomizer?? I think it's because it was super low on liquid, or something. It seems to be working okay now, but I wonder if I should change the thread?? It's on the U-Turn that I rarely use....too bulky. I now think I know what a Chocolate/Banana pie tastes like when it's on fire!!

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!

    Did you smoke analogs prior to vaping?

    Non electronic cigarette has been deemed to be an analog, even though an analog apparatus uses electricity of some sort. I think mechanical PVs are a far better fit for that term, but it seems like the hipster terminology has stuck for it to reference tobacco.

    Did you smoke cigarettes prior to vaping? They are called analogs. The thick juice means it has a high vg content, vegetable glycene. It is harder to wick and can cause dry hits like you mentioned above. Look for mixes around 50/50 pg/vg or 60/40, etc.....those will work better in your cartimizers and clearomizers. Pg is propylene glycol.

    1. drink more water and get backups for your backups!
    2. careful! vaping may turn you into a shopaholic and hoarder!

    WoWZa!!
    You guys are all SO nice! Thank you for your kind understanding...

    I think this guy must have used all P.G. as it is VERY thick! I read somewhere that I can add a drop or two of water....do you all agree?

    vg is the thick juice. but yes you can add water but it needs to be distilled water. and do it little bits at a time. you dont want your juice too thin. the "fire" hit you described was probably a dry hit and, yes because there wasnt enough juice to wick. try tilting it when vaping and even more so when low on liquid. and i believe vaping to be much much more healthy than analogs. good luck
