    Hello Everyone!
    First off I want to say thank you to everyone that has posted threads or replied on this forum. While this is my first post, I have been reading posts and threads on this forum for the past few weeks, gathering information and reading reviews. You guys have been so much help!!

    A little about me, today is day 1 having not smoked a cigarette in about 15 years. It has been fairly easy now that I have an e-cigarette. I have tried to quit in the past, and it was very difficult and all I could do to keep myself from smoking analogs. I started with a Joyetech Ego-C Twist equipped with a Vision Mini Vivi Nova, and am loving it thus far. The first juice I ordered was from Vermillion River E-Juice, upon recommendation from friends, and I just stated vaping this past saturday. I ordered a sampler and so far am enjoying all the juices I ordered. Since then I have ordered a Kanger Aerotank, and samplers from The Vapor Chef and Five Pawns, mostly because I am very curious about the difference between brands and flavors of juices, and clearomizers. These e-juice vendors looked to have very good ratings, so I thought I would give them a shot.

    Welcome to ECF! If you're juice shopping, i suggest trying some Halo flavors. As far as Hardware goes, I'm using a Vamo V3 with an IClear 30s. I hope you find this site as helpful as i have!

    Congrats on the transition!! Stay determined. I know it's not as hard when your vaping. I'm using an evic with kanger protank and also tanks from ibanked. I also use a Reo Mod I use daily.

    There are thousands of venders for eliquid. I personally like pink spot vapors. They have trial bottles you can get to figure outwhat flavors you like. It's 6- 6 ml bottles for around 25.

    same here on the "new" part. learning everyday and usually a question a day that always gets answered in appropriate time. this is for sure the best forum on the net for our hobby. welcome to the site and good luck on quitting those terrible analogs. you will feel great physically and mentally after a while.

I dont have anymore headaches, dark mucus discharge and i can breathe again! not to mention you smell so much better, DEFINITELY a hit with the ladies

    Thanks everyone! So far it's going really well. Haven't smoked yet and day 2 is almost over. Due to a cold attacking me this morning I havent really been vaping much, and surprisingly I don't even want an analog.

    From Vermillion River I got applewood, peachwood, cherry wood, honeywood, maplewood, Florida citrus explosion, and fruit stripe illusions.

    From vapor chef I ordered cranapple, piña guavada, schmecto schmooler, and Slartibartfast. It hasn't arrived yet but I'm excited!

    From five pawns I got their sampler pack, hasn't arrived yet.

    I want to try as many flavors as possible and try different nic and pg/vg mixtures to see what I like. As far as diving in head first, I would say that I did but I tried to make informed purchases based on research on this awesome forum.

    Also just got the Kanger aerotank in the mail today, super stoked! At first I didn't quite understand why I was having a hard time getting a solid hit. With the mini vivi nova I get a solid vape everytime and I really enjoy it. But after reading a little on here, it seems that the big difference is the dual coil and wet coil which can take a few seconds to warm up after activating. Does this sound accurate to you guys?

    I can't say specifically, since I don't have one, but doesn't it have an air flow controller? Maybe something to do with that, I wish I knew.

    You're off to a great start! Smart purchases.

    Yes, it has adjustable airflow so maybe that has something to do with it. I'll search some more and try to find some advice from someone that owns one as well. Thanks for the advice Huckleberried. I am really enjoying vaping compared to analogs and look forward to an analog free future!
