Good Morning Fla Crackers & 1/2 Crackers! I think the e-cig is a miracle & have really high hopes for it to get me off analogs. Already have some joe & I am puffin away on my e-cig (although I did already have an analog this morning). I am going to write a little run down of my first day vaping. Note: Technically, I did buy a luci ecig that I found at a smoke shop this weekend because I was just to eager to try e-cigs to wait for the one i had on order to arrive. Should have saved myself $132! It barely produced any vapor & flavor wasn't good + very hard to get a hit. At least the batteries will work in the new joye 510 i got (I found that out here on ECF). So because the luci is really inferior to the joye 510 i got to try yesterday i am considering yesterday my first real e-cig experience. 7am- Joe w/hazelnut cream in hand I headed to the ECF to dig for more info as I have for the past week or so (I've been lurking around here alot digging for info & watching video tutorials). I met a FL Eagle (my new buddy). I had alot of fun talking to him about everything under the sun. We have alot in common. I probably smoked about 1/2 a pack of analogs by 11am though as being on the computer seems to have that effect on me as I have noticed here on the forum for many others. 11am-Got my Joye 510 + alot of other goodies from nhaler. As I had only ordered this 510 pcc kit on fri. I thought this was lightning fast. Very nicely packaged with few extra gifts. I really liked the cool tupperware type thing to hold all of my e-cig supplies. Since you are supposed to charge the e-cig batts for an initial 8hrs I got those babies on the charger. But I was still able to try my new 510 because of the charged luci batt that fits the 510 from my blunder over the weekend (silver lining). 11:30am- Finally get to try it! Although the 510 is very sleek it seems a bit like something out of the matrix to me. I'm sure I'll get over this. I loaded up a marlbro-high cart & took a puff. Although you have to hit it a little longer than an analog the amount of vaper/smoke was satisfying. The vaper while plentiful doesn't seem as heavy in the lungs as an analog (maybe because analogs are weighed down with 4000 chemicals). The taste wasn't quite as strong as an analog. I think I will get used to that also as I did when I downgraded from reg-lights-ultra lights with the analogs. I did feel a little light-headed maybe because I kept puffing to in a short period of time. Overall, I am very pleased with the e-cig & I think I have a real chance at quitting here. I was out of analogs most of the afternoon & was putting off going to the smoke shop to get them which I finally did at about 3:30pm. So for a few hours I just used the ecig. I still feel like I want a cigarette but it seems bearable. Like' I wasn't climbing the walls yesterday afternoon or anything. I had about 5 analogs from 3:30-bedtime so I think I'm off to a good start! I usually smoke 1pk-2pks of analogs a day. I was up pretty late ordering more juices to try + researching how to care for the 510. Ps. I had a little 6ml sample of Dr. Pepper, I liked that pretty well. Today- Gotta get to work! Really late! I have only 5 analogs on me tday! Yikes!!!! I had my husband put the carton I bought yesterday in his truck (we usually share them). So I will have to go to the store & buy some if I need more. DETERRENT!! Sorry so long, I think it theropy for me though. Not usually a chatty Cathy. Wish me luck!
