I been vaping since August 08. Actually stopped smoking analogs quite by accident. Wasn't really trying to quit, just sort of happened. I have replaced my smoking habit pretty much completely by vaping. I still have the occasional analog every couple weeks or so, but every single time, I am blatantly reminded why I gave them up. Also, I remind myself what it's like to lick a dirty tire.
Anyway, I live in Dallas (Plano Actually). I'm originally from PA, but I've spent most of my adult life in Texas. Have two daughters in college (SMU) and would STILL consider putting them up for adoption (Well...until they finish college anyway)
For those just starting out, hang in there. I smoke the pen-style almost exclusively, and I drip always. I'm (patiently) waiting for improvements in batteries, and in (consistant) atomomizer lifespan, but it'll come...some day. I have finally passed the point of e-vaping being cheaper than smoking. It took a while, 'cause I was buying a lot of different things, to find something I could be happy with. I like the Janty manual switch the best, but I hate being stuck with more expensive batteries. I just need to break down and mod my USB supplies to work with the smaller-threads. I get tired of constantly charging batts.
Anyway, ... about me... I breath oxygen, I have a complete pair of eyes, still have all 10 fingers, AND, I occasionally try and be funny. Of course, I'm just masking the pain that I have.....oh wait, I'm accidently sitting on a pencil. Pain Gone Now. You all have a great day/night/evening now.
