  1. My dilapidated old computer and my matching self have had a few setbacks. Thus I am over the moon that it has decided not only to favor me by sputtering to life, but permit me the long-denied luxury of cyber-squeezing every one of my dear adoptees till you squeak! You all live every minute in...
  2. It's one of the most popular - and sweetest - questions I see in the New Members Forum: Which e-cigarette should I get my mom, my dad, great-grand MeeMaw, cantankerous old Uncle Pooter? Replies are numerous, loving, thoughtful and well-intentioned, but I rarely see my ECF siblingern respond...
  3. -Especially if we're old and ailing, it's very likely that our loved ones will be so delighted that we've decided to eliminate tobacco cigarettes that they'll frequently make us presents of everything from juice to extension cords for the sitting room where the settee is 12 feet from the wall...
  4. While I hope and pray that you'll never need it, this is information that could potentially save your life or that of a loved one, so I hope you will all read it, and share it with others. If you or someone you love is living with chronic pain, regardless of the cause, please urge them to make...
  5. Both before, and to a lesser extent, during, my recent non-consensual downtime (caused by what I consider to be an excessively zealous aggregate of health nuisances - not one of them remotely related to cigarette smoking, for the irony fanbase's grim subsection), I allocated far too much time...
  6. The Syringe Method of filling cartomizers, declare its proponents, is superior to the Condom Method, first and foremost because it wastes less juice. It's more labor and equipment-intensive than the Condom Method, and comes with a steeper learning curve, but once we find our One True Juice, our...
  7. Many of our Hale and Hearty brothers and sisters who, unlike us, have sharp eyes and steady hands, eschew both condom and syringe methods in favor of the most obvious and direct method of arranging marriage between juice and cartomizer: The Dripping Method. These fortunate souls begin the same...
  8. Even if you've done everything up to now all by yourself, if you used a transparent juice, you will need a loved one to examine the Kleenex for you, as you won't be able to tell when Reverse Puffing ceases to cause the appearance of little droplets of juice on the Kleenex. When the Kleenex is...
  9. Note: Some of this blogrant will have been rendered obsolete by the discovery of Colory Cartomizer Hats, explained HERE. I've left it in for people who can't see, or can't see colors, and for people who need to fill cartomizers while they wait for their colory hats to arrive. Once you've...
  10. Both the condom method and the syringe method begin with putting juice in a condom. (Theoretically they don't have to, but this is the easiest way, and we'll get to the rest. Patience) Pick up a condom (the thing that looks like a Barbie water tumbler) and push it down into your piece of...
  11. Two Wonderful Things Have Come To Pass! Vapian, one of ECF's very own Brilliant Mind Owners, has been nice enough to instruct his to invent The CartomizerFillinator especially for people with no vision! It's still being developed, read all about it in the thread linked above, but if you are...
  12. The two most popular methods for accomplishing this task are the Condom Method and the Syringe Method. We're going to learn both, but no matter which one you choose, or if you construct your own combination method, filling cartomizers is a Project. If you tire easily, have difficulty using...
  13. OBTAINING JUICE You should, by now, have sent off for a few "sampler packs" of juice. You may have received gifts of juice. You may have even sent off for whole big bottles of it, which you weren't supposed to do yet. One way or another, you should have obtained a variety of juice. If you...
  14. STABILIZING CONDOMS, SQUEEZING BOTTLES, AND SEEING IT ALL - OR NOT The first task of the actual filling process will be to squeeze liquid out of a tiny bottle and have it enter a Barbie water tumbler made of silicone. If we're living with neuro-trash or other diseases or conditions that...
  15. TAKING UPGRADE RIVER BY STRATEGY A successful upgrade to e-cigarettes is dependent on a pleasant transition process. Sure, there's work to do and jetsam to jettison, but the reward stream starts as soon as we do. Our e-cigarettes taste better and smell better than our tobacco ones. That's not...
