I decided to post here after introducing myself in new member forum. I hope it's not against the rules. I ordered V2 pen via groupon which took long to ship and due to impending event I went to a local vape shop and I was sold a SMOK M17 stick and some 6mg tobacco flavored e-juice. I had smoked cigarettes for 30 years and was determined to quit as soon as possible and hence the impatience. I enjoyed vaping and smoking for few days and then realized that smoking was giving me same feeling as vaping so quit buying cigarettes and that was 3 weeks ago. I have burnt through couple of coils (one of them brand new and not primed). My V2 pen also arrived and I got the congress liquid (12mg) from them. Now I don't want to bore you with long story so I'll get to the point. The e-juice from vape shop didn't taste like tobacco at all but it curbed my urge to smoke. The V2 congress e-juice smells like real tobacco to me and I use that during every break and finish off with M17 and vape shop juice. What I notice is that I get a decent throat hit with the V2 for the first 3-4 times and then there is no throat hit. I vape MTL and I still have urge to smoke cigarettes. I carve for throat hit every single time and get disappointed when I don't get it. I do not care about how much vapor is produced. All I want is good tobacco taste and a great throat hit. My friend tells me that I need a better and more powerful setup so this is where I am. Saving money on coils will be good but I don't mind spending money. I want a great setup which will meet me most fundamental requirement was good tobacco flavor and a great throat hit. I have PG-VG, flavors, beakers, nicotine, syringes, bottles etc already on shelves to make my own e-juice (I've done my homework here as far as that is concerned.) I'll appreciate any input that the more experienced members can give me. Thank you in advance for all your input.
