    Is there still bad weather back there holding up shipments? I placed an order on the 5th (gotta stop ordering on the weekends), got confirmation it shipped on Mon. the 7th, and here it is Thurs. the 10th and still no package.
    Because I'm out of stuff now, I broke down and smoked. How depressing.:(

    There have been reported weather issues in parts of the US - we ordered computers last week for the office, and they took forever to get to us. If you still have issues tomorrow, please give us a shout and maybe we can track your stuff down.

    OK thanks. I just had such a crappy day today and looked forward to having that package to cheer me up. Guess I'll just go eat cookies.
    Had to update my signature too.:cry:

    I was also wondering if their were delays in shipping. I placed my order Tuesday around noon and still no shipping confirmation. Looks like it will prob go out tomorrow, it was my fault for banking on the usual fast turnaround time. Prob won't get it till tuesday. I'm dumb. Now I'm down to the nitty gritty stuff.

    This is one of the few times my ocd has helped me. I have 10 cartos in 2 cases and a pcc, 7 untouched boxes of prefilled cartos, a box of self filled, 3 boxes of blanks, and three bottles (only 2 are untouched of each) of my three favorite flavors. That's the lowest in stock I've had and I'm freaking out...... Only suggestion I have is to try and have at least 2 weeks worth on hand just in case something like this comes up. If I lived in cali I would gladly bring you some cartos or juice Ms. Star.

    You're not dumb Ms. Kimmy, just used to getting your orders in 2 days.

    Very kind of you, Morandir sir. Must suck to have your entire head hurt from top to bottom, hope you feel better soon. Yes, lesson is learned. Instead of random ordering, I will sit down and plot out how much of what I think I'll need for a 3-4 weeks and order up. Thought I had done just that, but my last order was for two boxes of flavors I didn't end up liking, and one box for a flavor they ran out of. So I basically got nothing out of 15 carts ordered. Oh well.

    Yes, starsong, backups, backups, backups......... I have the same fear of running out and already have a huge collection.

    By the way, my red diamond-series (the one to replace the defective one) came today and works like a charm.

    I like your signature!

    Thanks Lisa. Good news about your replacement and planning ahead :)
    At least now my sig better reflects how much I've 'saved' between all the batteries, carts, juices, and accessories. Just need to find 1 or 2 more flavors I really like before stocking up.

    I live in Illinois, ordered late the 4th, received notification from the good folks at V4L the 7th that my order was shipped, but didn't get it until the afternoon of the 10th. And, I'm only about 160 miles southwest! I feel for you as I was sweating it too...was on my LAST cartomizer from Cig2o. Was never so relieved to see the mailman. LOL.

    Awwww, so sorry Starsong. Think everyone does that at least once. While smoking really sucks, look at all the cigs you've saved your lungs from! I have enough for if I get snowed in or the zombie horde moves in.

    Thanks for all the well wishes friends. The package did arrive today. Got a battery and 1 box of carts (the waffle I wanted to try). But the one thing I reallllllly wanted/needed was my WowBoy carts -- not in the package!! No note to say why either. So I just submitted a ticket. If there was any time some nice freebie carts would have been appreciated it would have been now, too bad I didn't get any. Did get a pink pouch for the battery tho :) So I still am in need of my daily vape (woe is me).

    Hopefully the waffle cartos will help you make it through the weekend Ms. Star. Knowing V4L they'll have this fixed by tuesday.

    I don't mean to rub salt in the wound, but I placed an order on Thurs, Feb 10 and I just checked. It's out for delivery to me TODAY! Fastest shipping ever. Considering where I live, I think that's incredible. When I ordered during the snowstorm(s), it only took maybe an extra day or so to get here. However, there was that one time late last year when my package sat in Denver (which is definitely NOT on the way to FL from Chicago) for about 5 days. But we won't talk about that.

    Well, out here in loopy Calif my package this week arrived in the usual two days. Go figure.

    But Star, as you mentioned, the lesson here is a big one, IMO... not letting supplies get so low that one has to count the shipping days, especially if quitting cigs is in the picture. Although my own stash is just a few months' worth, there are guys here well stocked until 2012 or even 13. No joke! I do hope you get your stuff soon.

    Well, I did think I was stocking up... previous order was for 3 packs of flavors I hadn't tried before. Unfortunately I didn't like 2 of them and the 3rd they were out of, so immediately placed a new order since now what I thought was a couple weeks worth was suddenly 0. It's just been a bit of bad luck, and I don't blame them at all - it's my tastebuds and the postal service.

    Slightly off topic: I know I love WowBoy, but haven't found another flavor to be excited about. I've tried the coffee sampler and Parlament, and couldn't stand them. The Waffle and RY4 are just OK. The only free samples I've gotten were Razz and Margarita (didn't like those either) and another coffee (ugh). Again, nothing against them or their flavors, I'm sure they are perfect for other people. So I'm a little nervous about buying more packs without having the opportunity to try just 1 first. Makes it is a little hard to really stock up just yet.

    Edit: I dug out some of the coffees, since everyone says what you don't like one day you might like another day.... so the espresso is growing on me :)

    If you like Wowboy I would also suggest WOW Peppermint - you'll have to get the carts right now as we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of joice. From the beginning this has been one of my favorites. Maybe also try fruit flavors I like the grape and peach, a menthol flavor I like is the Smilin - I'm not a big fan of the alcohol flavors, but I do like the coffee. Best of luck..

    Ms. Starsong I would suggest the wowboy peppermint. The wow cowboy menthol isn't bad, but only available in bottle form. Nuport wow and smilin special are my go to's. I'm a huge menthol fan, so sadly that's what most of my suggestions will be. I have tried every available menthol and those would be my top 4.
