    I suppose I should have stated I plan on reducing my nic and quit nicotine altogether. Stopping smoking was the bigger task. I'm sure in 6 years, if I still can't function without It there'll be CBD or something else. Funny thing about addiction is how everyone wants to believe it has more power than it actually does.

    Considering there's a talk about harsher laws in canada aswell (ie banning rdas because they're not "childproof")
    If i have to go DIY with my juice, unfortunately that's gonna be my end never had any interests in doing so never will. For my hardware though, i'm stocking up with a bud from a vape shop i know well, bought 2 more profiles and another squonk for now.

    DIY juice is far easier than you think and it only costs me under 50 cents a week vs $10-$20/week or whatever it costs (been DIYing for like 10-11 of my 12 years vaping, so I am not sure how much it cost).

    I also do not see many juice companies being able to afford PMTA, certainly not mom and pop shops that mix their own, that's for sure. So the selection after May 12th is going to be quite limited, if there is even a selection at all.

    DIY can be made simple if you can settle for simple flavors. Like, no mixing of flavors, just straight-up one flavor (just mix in the right percentage so it's not too strong or weak).

    But that's not going to be easy for everyone, I understand. I saw that coming years ago so now I only vape 1 straight flavor mostly. The only other flavor I vape, I can do without.

    You can google vapocolypse calculator it opens with excel on ones computer and perhaps other programs just input your figures example nic strength, ml per day vaped etc etc. that it asks and will tell you how much nic you need in years ahead in different strengths and how many ml needed .

    Personally set with all things related and our nic has been in freezer for a number of years now in amber bottles .

    He's a good hard-working guy he's stubborn as heck but that's ok.. he's also the reason I started vaping instead of smoking he was the first one but he knew better because of the way I am then to push me instead he said he'll pay for it if I want to try it out but there was no pressure LOL and I guess his tactics worked :) he's overcome much more addictive substances and a much harder life then simply not vaping will be. :)

    I think a hundred is an easier number to deal with.. my plans are to reduce my nicotine level which I've shown some pretty good ability to do without any slip back. So even though I prepared based on 10 years and 3 mg per milliliter those aren't going to be my numbers because I have no intention of making 3 mg per milliliter juice and that's how I'm going to double my Supply. If you vape a higher nicotine than 3 mg per milliliter maybe 250 mg per milliliter is better for you financially it makes sense but I do believe you have to be a little bit more cautious and I would rather not have to be more cautious.

    Wow, thanks for that. That definitely puts things into perspective for me. Looks like I'm solid for the next 30 years or so.

    Just to make sure it was somewhat accurate, I put in my stats with the amount of nicotine I had purchased prior to my stockpiling, and it came back showing just about what I have left of the original purchase. So it seems pretty darn accurate to me.

    I bought 250mg for space saving concerns. When looking at stocking up for the next 25 years, saving space took preeminence in my house..

    You have to be more careful with it, but if your looking at space I think it's well worth it.

    You are so right about that... wanted to get my first DL RTA but better get the nic while it's affordable!

    I am.... still cheat and have a couple smokes in the morning (not proud of that at all) I need it to keep that damned monkey off my back. besides, there are actually positive things about nicotine: first it's relaxing (helps with anxiety) then it is mentally stimulating (that's why many of the famous writers smoked... it does stimulate mental activity) Get over it... is caffeine any better? I also need my two cups of coffee in the morning. Junkfood, alcohol, TV, shopping, sex, money... all forms of addiction. I don't judge. We are all adults aren't we?

    Wrong forum but just wanted to add that I can always resort to the "other stuff"... otherwise I might become a total alcoholic (both are legal in CA) Don't do it much anymore, but you guys are stressing me out and just remembered I have a tiny bit left ;)

    I've made juice before. Excellent juice. I have no issues with DIY. Reckon I'm just gonna stock up while I can. And I do think 250mg will be the best bet. Gonna look closer at the prices in a bit, and do some math on it. I do want to add, to the folks who say they just wont bother with DIY, you should seriously reconsider, just in case. Its just not that difficult as it seems. There are enough recipes for vape juice that are easily available and several good juice calculators on the web. You just measure your nic base, by weight or volume it doesn't matter. Put this in a clean bottle. Then measure and add the different flavorings to the nic base. At this point, I personally go max VG and just top off the bottle with VG, I never measure the glycerin. I use PG only nic base and the flavorings are PG base as well. Between the nic and flavors, that's enough PG for my taste and that's why I fill the bottle on up with the VG. Easy peasy.

    I’m not the least bit worried about it. Any change in the regs will be challenged in court. Wake me up when you actually can’t get flavored vape liquid. I’ll be sleeping for a LONG time because it isn’t going away any time soon.

    That's a good long time! He's an oldtimer now. :) Should be feeling confident in his sobriety by now.
