    I thought I posted the link, but it came thru as just the name of the product, trying again: $15.74 Authentic KangerTech Subvod-C 1300mAh Starter Kit - 2.8ml / 0.4ohm at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    I *think* because I'm new on this forum it's not letting me post the link, I think I might of read that I have to start 5 threads before I can post links to curb spam.

    Thank you! That is reassuring, about the prices and the quitting cigs. Congratulations, btw! I'm hoping if I can manage this to get my dad into it. He's 63, been smoking since he was 9 and even smoked while he had throats cancer. :( I would love for that not to happen to me, or reoccur for him.

    ohhh.... and BTW, when you start to get off the ciggies, there are possibilities that you will have some "side effects" from the cessation of smoking... the body will start purging the toxins in various ways... dont make the mistake of thinking that the vape is causing it... ;)

    I'm thinking on replacement coils for her, she will probably like the NiCr 1.5 ohm to start out..

    Does this kit give her two coils to start out with? One .5 ohm and one 1.5? I'm not seeing any mention of that...

    Thanks.. and as far as your dad goes, have patience with him. I vaped for three years before my husband decided he was willing to try it.. I was never pushy, but he was set in his ways and had a hard time taking up with it, so just do the occasional gentle encouragement with your dad.. :)

    The picture shows a coil, but it's not listed in the description.. I'd say the description is what we ought to say is right more than likely.

    So she may need to consider ordering a couple, just in case..

    Over 5 years cigarette free thanks to vaping. I was nervous as well...the sheer thought of being without my "ball and chain" would send me into panic mode.

    I was addicted to the taste, the social aspect of hanging out with friends that smoked and at how I knew that it would help me relax if I was having a rough day. The thing is, in the back of my mind, I wanted to quit; I NEEDED to quit, and every cigarette was a slap in my face.

    One day, when buying my usual pack of Parliament Lights (that I was able to transition to from Marlboro reds and ick menthol) my friend at the shop showed me a cigalike and how it was helping him to curb hos cravings. I didn't believe it, but figured I'd give it a shot. Much to my astonishment, after a couple bouts of hacking my lungs out, I realized it was working! I still craved the smoke, but it was genuinely curbing that craving!

    I vaped and smoked for about 3 months, and one of the best feelings was realizing a pack was lasting longer and longer, just before I realized I didn't need those stinkies anymore, and I was finally able to break free from those chains that bound me...I hope your transition goes as smoothly :)

    FYI: Fasttech's nickname is Slowtech for a reason lol. I've dealt with them before, and if something says authentic and not style/styled or clone, it's the real deal.

    Yeah, I don't think you will find yourself liking tobacco flavored juice. Myself and many others, have found that we end up preferring flavors that are not tobacco based (I'm more into fruit flavored juices). I have all the supplies needed to DIY, but I still find myself buying juice since it is just so convenient. There are a ton of really cheap juice places online. Two of my favorites are Beyond the Bottlez (they regularly offer coupon codes where you can get 120 ml bottles of juice for $5, and if you order 4 or 5 bottles of juice, you get free shipping) and Tomorrow Vapes (they sell 120 ml bottles for $10 and first time customers get 20 percent off, while repeating customers can get 15 percent off). Tomorrow Vapes also have a huge selection of flavors.

    I was a pack a day smoker for over 30 years, and quit smoking the day I started vaping. I haven't had a cigarette for almost 27 months now. The biggest thing that vaping does is it totally replicates the sensation of smoking, which is something that Chantix, gum, patches, and lozenges doesn't do. The first couple of weeks, whenever I got the craving to smoke, I just vaped until the craving went away. The first couple of days, I would actually get nic sick from the nicotine (not really that bad, just a little upset stomach, maybe a little light headedness). Your body will tell you if you got too much nicotine and no, you will never get too much nicotine to the point of overdosing. The important thing is finding the right nicotine level for you to satisfy the cravings.

    My girl friend and I use that website for most mod-related purchases as it is much cheaper than the local stores. If you understand the statistics of what you're ordering and know how to understand what you're ordering (such as the mah for batteries) then it's a great website. I don't know all that info so I let her do all the ordering but everything has been great

    Also, I smoked for almost 2 years before I got into vaping. A pack up to a pack and a half a day. I was addicted to smoking myself. Not just the nicotine. I've found that when I use the right nicotine level, I can't stand the thought of a cigarette. But when I try to lower the nic level I use, I may have a few cigarettes a week or if I am highly stressed. But for the most part, I don't smoke anymore

    Haha, I'm not either! It's unfortunate for me because I don't have Internet at my house and normally if I'm not home I am at school where I can't vape or I am with someone who can help me with just about any issues I have. The only info I really know is hit the button, how to change coils, and if I want temp control or what watts/joules level I want. You should be perfectly fine between ECF and YouTube

    Welcome to the vape fam!

    I popped a look at the kit you ordered and it's a good one. I think you'll really like those coils, there's a few variations available to adjust the vape style if needed. The .5ohm ones are the popular Direct to Lung coils, the 1.8ohm are for Mouth to Lung. I used to describe the difference as breathing through a slurpee straw (DTL) or breathing through a coffee straw (MTL).

    It does take some getting used to, but after a week or so, you'll find yourself reaching for the vape instead of the cigarettes. Nowadays, I'm not addicted to the smokes, but I have definately acquired a new disease called shinyitis, an affliction where you compulsively collect the new shiny devices, not because you need them but because they're new and shiny.

    I'm East Coast and tend to receive my FastTech orders within 8 days or so, but things with built in batteries take a bit longer in shipping due to restrictions so you're probably looking at about 3 weeks or so.

    And like everyone said, if you have questions, post! Somebody's usually available and willing to help.

    Also, for juice/liquid, online is typically cheaper than store. There's been a lot of good recommendations so far so I'd just like to add one more. Vapewild (dot)com is a good site with a large selection and sample packs of 6x 10ml flavors for $17. Plus they send freebies with every order. My first order with them, I ended up liking 3 of 6 I selected and loving the two freebies they sent.
