    This has been bandied about from time to time in several subforums, thought I would ask again here.

    Roughly I'd spend 170.00 per month on smokes....I spend 0.00 on smokes now and alot on vaping BUT my spending on vaping will eventually decrease and I'll get down to saving some cash. I guarantee I wont spend 2,051.00 on vaping equipment and supplies in a years time.

    I was spending about $400 a month on analogs.

    I'm still new to vaping, but I figure I will probably be spending about $50 a month.

    I spent about $140 a month on analogs and in the 4 months I have been vaping I have spent about $180 on vaping, but I still have maybe a 3 month supply left - so less than $30 a month and now that I am fully into DIY I expect to get that down to less than $25...

    i used to spend about $230 per month on smokes. that was if i was smoking without any budget restraint on my habit, just keeping it going. if need be i could spend $120-175/month, but nothing below that.
    i haven't hit a plateau for vaping costs quite yet, but i'm getting there. i maintain a pretty decent stockpile, and tend to buy a little more than i need so i don't have to worry about it. but now that it's been built i'm estimating my costs at $50-90/month. that much should maintain my stock, and give me a little room to try new things with.

    I was spending around $150 for smokes and that amount was going up closer to $200 at that time. After I found my PV of choice (REO) and its initial investment along with plastic bottles and batteries, I spend around $30 for juice and perhaps another $10-12 on atomizers per month. I did spend too much money trying out various PVs but not more than I would have spent for smokes.

    I used to spend about 120-150 a month on cigarettes. I had a large initial cost to getting into vaping but now I spend about 30 bucks a month and the occasional mod splurge.

    DIY is the cheap way to go on juice

    About 150 a month. My wife and I talked it out after I got her interested in vaping and we decided to sink two months of up-front costs into vaping supplies to get us set up for a while.

    We've had some missteps with needing a few things we didn't plan for (get backup cartos for your carto tanks, most definitely), figuring out my nic levels (I was uncomfortable until I upped from 12 to 18) and our juice tastes weren't anything like we expected, but fortunately we mostly bought sampler sizes until we knew we definitely liked a flavor. (I did have one misstep -- being a former clove smoker, I got 30ml of a generic Clove juice. Blew out my palate and an atty. Right in the trash.)

    This may sound cheesy, but I feel like my wife and I having this discussion about investing in our health and change in lifestyle brought us closer together.

    Not cheesy at all. Actually well said and I know what you're talking about. My wife of 39 years is and always has been a non-smoker so I certainly can imagine how you both feel.

    Roughly $500 per month for the wife and myself on cigs.

    Bought a bunch of vape stuff the first few months, but less than $100 for both of us the past couple of months.

    And we both chain vape our heads off.

    Spent about $130 on ciggys. Now that I've got all my e-devices, which have paid for themselves by now, I spend about $50 - 75 on e-cig stuff.
    I put myself on a budget and I have stuck to it by keeping a wish list. Then, at the end of the month when I get my paycheck, I get out the list and determine what I really need, add a few things I just want and make the purchases. My DH recently got an e-kit (after much protesting and me letting him think it was his idea) he reports the thing has already paid or itself. So yeah, great savings on vaping vs analog smoking.

    About $440 a month on camels. I took that money and did my current setup. I tried a bunch of sample juices for the first couple of months. The DH is so pleased that I get to take most of our tax refund and get a really nice start into DIY, a years worth of cartos, 20 attys, and a VMOD XL to try a bottom feeder (when they are back in stock). So I think in the next year my spending should be cut down quite a bit.

    I'm not there yet but according to this
    I will be saving $1533 dollars a year when I start the vape...

    Come Monday, come Monday... I'll let you know which I'm going for - It's either going to be a www, (Canadian like me and ain-country shipping) or Smokeless Image | Only The Best Electronic Cigarette | Electronic Cigarettes | Wholesale Electronic Cigarettes | E-Cigarette | Best Electronic Cigarette | Electronic Cigarette (same-day shipping turns me on) starter kit, either way with an automatic battery and pre-filled cartridges... I want to take it easy on myself...

    Fifteen hundred bucks... man.
