    Actually quit about two weeks ago but the wife and I had colds so we were not going inside their house to visit. Got a chance to talk with him today and he confirmed analogs were getting 'nasty tasting' the last few days before he quit. Not ready to try non tobacco flavors yet but is testing some more of the ten (way too strong) tobacco flavors he started with last December. Small pulls and alternating them with his favorite 'Tall Paul' in 12 mg/ml from another vendor.

    Recoiled one of his three tanks for the first time today. He is obviously not a heavy vaper to make three coils last over two full months. Still plan to take him to a local B&M vape shop to see box mods and clouds and all that other fun stuff.:) Just found a bigger local shop two towns south of here. Shocked to learn they are one of the on line vendors occasionally mentioned here!

    Oh, will no longer be able to start threads in the new-members-forum after tonight. Guess I'm all growed up now:2cool:

    Yep, now you can post in the myriad of others. Took me a month to figure out what goes where...

    Turn him on to the streaming video site called it's a hoot to watch, usually multiple video shows, alot of talk of juices, new mods and how to coil and all that. It's pretty entertaining actually.

    Think I could since six posts, now with 70 it is must. And yes figuring out what goes where is often a problem.

    Will check them out. Though the in laws have satellite TV and no internet and we are just the opposite.

    Oh and thanks all for the advice and support!

    Congrats to him ! and kudos to you for helping out.
    Hope he feels as pleased with his achievement as I did 18mths ago at 69y/o,
    successfully quitting after smoking for 55yrs.
  11. OldBatty: great timing! I just now posted about searching for an elderly vaper to write a magazine feature on. Read my post, "Searching for elderly vaper for magazine feature." Think you FIL would be interested??

    Saw your thread and was planing on asking him... He said he would think about it, but does not really want the limelight. Shame, as his short white beard makes him look like a Santa Claus in training.
