    That's fantastic @tgs3! :thumbs: Especially considering how long you smoked. Keep chipping away at those smokes if that's your goal and you might just be surprised how far you can go.

    PS: We're very glad you found us, too.

    I'm finally home from doing back to back afternoon/midnight doubles. I'm pretty sure I'll live. o_O How's everybody else doing?

    I'm ok. Escaped from Irmas path for now. Pullin a trailer full of tater chips to deliver in Dallas tonight. Might run by the house if I don't get a serious load offer today. Fools that pull my strings offered me a load into Houston yesterday. I despise driving there on a GOOD day. Certainly ain't goin there under disaster conditions! Not me, not yet.

    Wish me luck folks! Just accepted a FEMA load picking up in San Antonio,Texas going to Selma, Alabama. No way I'd accept a commercial load going there but who can say no to people in need!

    One month smoke free and not nearly the struggle it was first time.

    Mixed up some new flavor ideas that I came up with. Peach Tea - is purty darn good. Root Beer Float - OK, may have over done the Dulce De Leche but it might just need to steep, it's vapeable. Pink Fuzzy - MMMMMmm! Mix of Pink Lemonade and Blue Raspberry Slush, great throat hit but kinda smooth and fuzzy instead of the citrus bite that Pink Lemonade has on its own.

    Been under stress with a personal issue and kind of fell off the wagon a few days ago. I think I smoked 13. Down to 11 yesterday and 10 today. Damn, quitting is hard! Having a bunch of trouble with a new device as well. I really have outgrown the Juul. It has been reliable but needs constant charging as is expensive to boot. But glad to be a part of the vaping world and this site.

    I'm happy that quitting this time has been easier than the last time. Many say it's the other way around.

    Stress is a major roadblock to quitting. At least you're getting back to where you were pretty quickly. Finding the right equipment that works for you is a big part of the battle. I hope you get your issues sorted out real soon.

    Well, I almost did it! Nearly caved in. Stopped myself just in time.

    Saw that a favorite clearance site has free shipping on any $5 purchase this week. Searched their massive inventory until I found something I liked for $5.49. A dripper. Was just about to fill out the checkout page when I thought... wait a second... I don't want a dripper, I don't need a dripper.... What the 7734 am I doing? I bailed outta there at the last second. I need help! Even now I'm thinking about going back for a couple silicon diapers for my Evic VTC Mini. I don't DO sillycone diapers! But I would get FREE SHIPPING. Argh, I'm a mess!

    Oh did y'all think I meant that caved in to something else??? Naaah that stuffs done with. :lol::lol::lol:

    Yes, Foggy. I thought you meant cigarettes! I see you have a bad case shinyitus, as do I. However I got stocked up for the original August 8th deadline and I still have mods and tanks I haven't even tried yet, so I'm able to resist. I still look but I haven't caved yet.

    I don't like the new stuff. Runs too hot and too much vapor for me. I'm actually back to using plain old 510 cig alikes.

    As they say...whatever works. Personally, I could never go back to the old stuff, but if it works for you, go for it!

    Ugh my juice tastes like wormwood today
    Even my butter rum is weird. My RY4 tastes like coffee for some reason it's not just me either Jazz agrees. Last time I made it I made 480 mls and the last bottle (that tastes like coffee) steeped about 8 months. It's not bad for coffee but it's crap for RY4 lol

    Hey guys, just checking in to report that I am now down to 8 cigs a day. Boring, right? But for me sensational. The whole thing, I now realize, is psychological. If I truly want to skip a cig, I now know that I can. My goal now is to stay under ten for the rest of September. You have been a great help. Thanks!

    Hi all, I want to introduce myself. I am a 40+ year smoker of 1 to 2 pad. My brother visited me here in Chile and brought with him 'some weird inhaler'. He gifted me a bottom loading Kanger tank and an Eleaf stick 30w. That was my introduction to vaping. After he went home (Canada), I researched my heart out and bought an IJustS kit. My first kit had a faulty tank, leaked the entire tank of juice out every time. I didn't give up, I got a replacement from the POS, and that worked like a charm :). I didn't start vaping to quit smoking, it just happened naturally. And I am not completely quit, but that's mostly because I don't want to be. I identify as a smoker, I've been doing that since I was 13 years old. Vaping now with an OBS Engine on a Smok Alien mod, I'm a wicking master, a novice coil builder, but all in all, an enjoyable ride :)

    Oh I guess I should say I don't really miss the after meal cigarette or the last one before bed- that surprised me! I do still miss the first thing in the morning one and the after 'happy time'. :(
