    I often have GAS, but I have several known cures. Often involves clearing a room quickly.

    Sometimes even makes me leave...

    Beans, beans the magical fruit. The more you eat the more you toot. The more you toot the better you feel and then your ready for another bean meal.

    Don't sweat the shiny bug. at $10 bucks plus a pack for cigs. a pack and a half smoker would would have to spend $450 a month to equal that. Some may but most don't.

    I know even buying stuff, I am far ahead of the cost curve vs smoking. I go thru about $20 worth of DIY juice a month and maybe 50 cents worth of rayon wick and ss wire. That leaves a lot of room for on the whim purchases.

    Same here. I have lots of backups because I assume lots of stuff is going to die soon.
    Absolutely!
    Me too.

    Maintenance items and backups don't count?
    So basically the first setup is all that counts?

    Methinks one has found a way around shinyitis into dark denial hallways...

    Which, is fine with me. Let me hold the door :)

    Went to the company Christmas party last night. This is my tenth year with the company. They gave me a 100.00 gift card.

    Think I'm about to succumb.

    $100!
    Man sure could do a lot of good with that.
    (Assuming you'd like to be talked off the ledge)

    $100!
    That'd get a new sqonk, new mech or a new regulated. Sure are a few nice shiny new attys out there too. Oh, and the wire/wick combos are amazingly cheap this time of year.
    (Assuming you're looking to be supported)

    I have been looking at the Hedron but it would come with a bunch of hassle. It's a three battery Mod so I would have to get a bigger charger. Another battery to set up a married set, I only have two spares that I have never used. And.... another tank. Thing is I need it like I need seven holes bored in my head.

    I do well on the disorder as far as vape stuff goes, but I fail miserably when it comes to the bicycle stuff. It just bought a new headlight for it, 750 lumens.

    Look at that, in a backyard. It's really small too.

    And the light itself, imagine the watts you could vape from that thing. Too bad it doesn't have a back up 510 connection.

    Have a friend that was into biking years ago. He had mountain bikes, road bikes, recumbent bikes, you name it. Was always out riding. Today his back is so messed up he can barely work and can't do much of anything. I left those days back in my teens and don't regret it. But, to each their own.

    I have a bad back from an injury, and yes sometimes riding makes it hurt. There are tricks though.

    With a MTB, get a bike stem that rises up (so you aren't bent over). You don't need to be aero to exercise. Ride with no hands, sitting up properly. Things like that make a huge difference.

    I don't use my road bike, kills my back. I like to load up all the tools for almost any repair, 3 liters of water, survival knife, hatchet, (firearm, depending on where I am) everything and climb hills on my mountain bike. That way I'm a total combined weight of nearly 300 lbs going up a 6% grade. It's steep enough to make you work, brutal enough to keep it short and when I get back home my back doesn't hurt at all.

    Taking a break from the grind and sitting up, no hands and vaping while riding is good for the back. I can't vape if it's just me alone since I run about 80% FTP. Riding with others (much slower pace), I choo-choo train it.

    Tl;Dr; Just ride with no hands and sit up.

    *Humor*

    Where do you park your bikes locked up @440BB ?

    [​IMG]

    *Humor*

    Yeah, I have one of those. It's for construction, not snagging bikes. Although all I've ever used it for was cutting locks when someone lost their keys. I need a 510 connector for that battery too.

    If you mean I purchased some e-liquid, well, it's exempt (and was inexpensive). I haven't purchased anything else since this thread started, LOL. Making it easier, I won a gift certificate for DIY flavorings YESSSSS... and a mod, which will probably end up in the husband's hands. I also got the WTA partially for him....

    I was checking out mods earlier but I managed to restrain myself.... :) As the person who requested this thread (thanks JFC) I would be managing very poorly if I couldn't keep to it for EVEN one day :lol::lol::lol:. Everything that has arrived was purchased long ago... :)

    Anna

    ETA: @KC0YNU (nice use of the 0 numeral there) to what are you referring? Did I buy something in my sleep???? (I never rule out the possibility)

    I bought nothing vape related yesterday. Will try to stay strong today, but will be having brunch right next door to a vape store. Must not go in!

    You can DO it Jingles.... Vape stores aren't going anywhere... yet, and hopefully not for a long time. You do not need to even enter the jungle of self-restraint :lol::lol:.
