    I am just curious... Who here is not stocking up on a lifetime supply of nic and hardware before the May 2020 deadline? And why not? Do you plan to quit vaping? Do you plan on going back to cigarettes? Do you plan on just vaping whatever three or four hunks of junk (i.e. nJoy or Blu type) tobacco flavored garbage the FDA approves?

    And if May 2020 wasn't enough of a reason, are you not worried about other things like the bill on the floor to add $2,780 in taxes per 1 liter of 100mg nic?

    I'm about half way through my liter of nic, am using a couple of beater mods I've had for a while, and have about a pocket full of usable tanks.

    To me, it's not worth the stress. I've enjoyed the ride so far, but whatever happens will happen and I have comfort in knowing I won't be alone.

    There's plenty of us international vapers, who call ECF home :wub: I'm from New Zealand.

    So I'm not in panic mode, and I'm not stocking up.

    However tanks to shinyitis I have plenty of regulated and unregulated mods, lots of RTAs and even more RDAs ;)

    The only thing I'm concerned about is quality 100mg nicotine base. Our local supplies are sourced from USA and Europe. So I am making the most of its current pricing and buying in extra.

    In my opinion not stocking up now leads to a lot more Gov messing with me in the future, not sure how that statement makes any sense.

    Imagine it's gun control and you want a gun but there's new restrictions and you say "I'm just going to get one later when it's harder because I'm not letting the Gov mess with me."

    Not knocking you for not stocking up that's your choice but that choice inherently let's the Gov mess with you.

    I’m stocked, but three vapers I know are not going to bother. One has already quit vaping, and I think started smoking again. My SIL is too cheap to spend up front. And I doubt she believes the ban is coming. She says she’ll worry about it IF it happens, but she’s ready to quit anyway. Another guy says he’ll quit vaping if the ban happens, too. They’re all just going to roll over and take it lying down. All of them, I guarantee, will be smoking within a week. It’s terribly discouraging. Part of me wishes I could grab a few things for them, but I really don’t have the cash or space for nic for 4 people, and I also sort of feel like they made their beds, let them lie in them.

    I stocked up once in the past for a ban that never happened and ended up with a stash of obsolete stuff. I dont have the cash or the space to do it again. I bought one extra liter of nic and if that isn't enough I'll take it asa sign that it's time to call it quits.

    If I insulted you it was unintentional, I was just trying to draw a comparison. I edited out the part that I thought you found insulting.

    I've got the same situation with my sister-in-law. She stocked up on juice when the flavor ban reared its ugly head, but now she thinks she doesn't have anything to worry about. I've given her the facts and I've told her how I am stocking up, but I don't want to push her any more than I already have. I think she thinks I'm overreacting in a big way. Once May 12 arrives and she is in trouble, I'll help her as much as I can with hardware and nic, but the supply is limited and it is primarily for me.

    That's true, but I'd prefer to avoid suffering in the meanwhile. Hence !#Ω#!

    I expect to be a life long vaper so I'm mixing and rebuilding and have a supply of nic, atomizers and mods. There is one oher person I mix for. I can't get him to buy more hardware, a problem because I will share with him if necessary. I'll probably buy some extra hardware for that contingency.

    I'm surprised at how many vapers say they'll stop vaping. I quit cold turkey and relapsed after 10 years. That's not an unusual story. That won't happen again as long as I'm vaping.

    I encountered one smoothbrain on r/electronic_cigarette and his thinking went like this:
    I think at this point most of the folks who haven't adapted are ready to be culled. This forum has gone downhill since all the last-minute-Charlies started posting all their "is it worth it" threads.

    I think stocking up has it's rewards if a person does not want government interference in their vape lifestyle. That is where I am at. I love vaping and will never smoke again, so for me stocking up was my only option because I do not want to quit and I do not want to smoke. I am glad I stocked up :)
