    Well Jan 8th was my first no cigarette day and I haven't had one since.I am a Pharmacist and in late December my tech came to work with an ecig. After looking at that strange thing, I said "if you can stop for 2 weeks I will stop also". Well come Jan 8th she was still vaping and I said ok I am in.

    From that day forward I have been only vaping. However unlike her I am a techie and so have spent a lot of money on "stuff".

    Currently I use an E-Vic, a SID and on top I rotate Mini protanks and protank II with the aero bottom. I have learned to rebuild the coils and now my tech does that too.
    This is just really good for me and my hospital!

    That's awesome! Congrats! And yeah, as far as dollars are concerned, you can fall down the rabbit hole really quickly. I started out basic and may have gone overkill in recent months.

    Great decision and welcome aboard, Gary! July 2, I will be smoke-free for a year, after 45+ years of heavy smoking. It's a miracle! Vape on, friend!
