    I'm new to the forum and new to vaping. I just bought my first "real" vape. I bought an eGo AIO starter. I am using it to quit smoking cigarettes. I was a 23 year cigarette smoker. I haven't even had a drag of a cigarette in SEVEN days! This has been the most success I've ever had on my countless attempts to quit.

    I'm not going to lie, I thought vaping was kind of douchey. I think it was because I used to work with a guy who would blow his super sugary vapor with no regard to anyone around him. I've found people who do that aren't lame because they vape, they're lame because they just ARE. They just happen to be douche bags who vape.

    We have several vape shops in the city I live in. The staff at the first shop I went into were super helpful and didn't try to oversell me for what I wanted or needed. I've been into a few others for accessories and just to check 'em out. So far, I've only run into one shop that wasn't friendly. Meh, my money will go elsewhere.

    Just wanted to say thanks in advance for the knowledge and experience you all have had and are willing to share.

    Happy vaping, y'all!

    Hi, welcome to ECF and congrats on your first week smoke free! That's absolutely fantastic, and I'm glad you found something that is working for you. Keep up the good work, and do post any questions you may have along the way.

    I didn't think vaping was douchy when I started vaping this time but was still fairly uncertain if it would work for me. I remember my first week cigarette free and being AMAZED. Congrats, and welcome to ECF. Great job! :)

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    My compliments on the choosing a good starter vape kit, it seems more often than not (I have viewed many tales of woe) new vapers try to skip the learning part of vaping and run into trouble quickly. Your one of the smart ones who will do just fine. The more you learn about vaping, the more pleasure/successful you will be. Welcome to good health the rest of your life.

    What are some opinions of the Smok sticks? I'm thinking of upgrading from my eGo AIO. I like the look and the availability of Smok products. Is it overrated? Is it worth the money? There's such a big world of devices out there!

    It's a fixed wattage setup I THINK? Those aren't for everyone, although it is a more inexpensive way to get into DL setups, I guess. Be cautious during battery charges, there have been a couple of reports of explosions recently, or leaving burn marks. It may or may not have been user error, and in comparison to all the smok sticks sold, I doubt that it is a HUGE concern, but something useful to know. If you get one, I'd keep an eye on it while charging for a while, and probably check it a couple times to see if it's heating up too much, although I usually do that routinely with an USB charging mod that I own. I'm more comfortable with removable batteries, although those are sometimes hard to find in "tube" setups these days. Best of luck with whatever you decide.
