    Hey guys ands gals, I’ve been vaping an awfully long time and now come to the conclusion it’s time to quit... I am in the U.K. , so I’ve not really got any idea of where I can get rid of most of my hardware.... lots in the collection.... I’m definitely not just dumping the lot of it, as it cost me quite a bit in the first instance.... obvs I will not be getting rid of any batteries etc as I can still use those in torches etc... I have managed to wean myself off nic salts (due to bad reaction) , and back onto less than 3 mg nic at the moment... I plan on making some 0 nic liquid to aid my quitting.... if anyone has any helpful advice- please post.... thanks!

    Congratulations! I have no idea what to do in the UK--there must be charitable organizations that would gladly accept vaping gear. But @Mordacai , @dreamvaper or @Richard Winter (or other Brits) might be able to help.

    Try a good cinnamon flavor for placebo throat hit effect.

    Menthol, Koolada and peppermint are other good flavours for throat hit.

    I was hoping you would have some tips regarding the hardware--where to donate or PIF?

    Unfortunately @Katya, the only thing that comes to mind is to put items up for sale through the for sale section of the forum.

    You can put a thread up in the Classifieds Section here to sell any hardware that you are interested in selling:thumb:
    Good Luck:)

    Any local vaping forums with PIF or classifieds? Most of ECF users are Americans or Australians, Canadians, etc.--shipping costs will be prohibitive for used items.

    A lot of people use Gumtree these days for their vape sales now that eBay is no go:)

    Thanks I will look into that to see if the laws etc will allow such things vape related... it’s tricky to get rid of in U.K. ...

    It definitely is legal, I've recently purchased 2 Asmodus mods from the UK Gumtree website:thumb:
    Do your homework yourself though:)

    Lol, that was actually a post I deleted as best I could, as it was meant for another thread. The reason I suggested cinnamon though, was specifically for the reason you didn't like it. Maybe not as much cinnamon as you used, but when I tried 0 nic, it definitely was missing something, and the cinnamon burn filled that void with a placebo effect. I had been vaping half a mg per ml for a month before that too, so even at low dose to nothing, my brain still needed something that wasn't there.

    Psudo-ninja edited to add, it's getting awfully late (early?) this side of the pond...
