Thought I would take a picture of what's in my vape cabinet. Believe it or not, I threw out along of juice.
I made the decision to come back to the Vaping World after a two year hiatus in the world of the Cancer Sticks. I fell from my Vaping Cloud because it was cumbersome to maintain the tanks I used and keep up with the juices. It got to where it was not fun anymore so I found myself, one cigarette at a time.
With that said, this time I am going to upgrade everything. I have purchased a Smok Baby Alien AL85 to try out which cones with a Smok Baby Tank. After watching some YouTube videos, I was set on getting one of them. I ordered it last night from VapeMN.
I have been vaping now for a little over three weeks and I believe I am now starting to settle in on what I like and dislike in the vaping world I choose to take part in. It was so hard for me when I first started as I had no idea what in the world I was doing and there were many people who were really wanting to help me get started but each and every one of them had a different view on the direction I should go and none of them really matched with what I really wanted to accomplish from Vaping.
Yes I wanted to stop smoking and vaping has helped me very much in accomplishing this but after I startedgetting into it, there was so much more that I wanted. I guess I got somewhat spoiled as I wanted a particular taste and a particular feel when I blew out that cloud. It has been, thus far, a matter of trial and error. I learned that I can not leave home with just a single tank attached to a 650 mAh battery for the tank will surely loose all its juice while showing it off to a co worker and I will have to lower my goal and smoke a stinkie. That happened once and only once. I also learned that I can not leave my spare tanks out in the truck when the heat of the day gets around 95 degrees. Those little white orings in the top and bottomg of these tanks do not stand up to the heat and I found myself sucking juice and changing coils prematirely. It took a couple of days to figure this out and some advice from my local BM vendor. So now I have a pistol case that holdsmy spare tanks filled with my favorite juices and spare batteries just in case 1 or 2 of them give out and leave me stranded.
Another learning experience for me is buying juice online. Almost every bottle of juice have puchased online have not tasted the way I expected and I have purchased bug bottle of what I thought would be my favorite flavors only to be disappointed very much and either giving the bottles away or mixing them with one of the coule flavors I like only to make a concoction that I dont thing my dog would like very much. I now purchase huices exclusively at local BM's where I am able to test the flavor first before I buy and if I get them from an online vendor, it is the smallest bottle they offer and if I like it, I will up the quantity I get.
So now I have the devices I favor, a Innokin MVP 2 with an Aerotank and a Vamo V5 with a Protank on it. I am sure I will be tempted to get the lastest "new thing" but will have to be over curious to spend the money on it and if I do spend money now, it will be for trying new juices and adding to the collection of favorite tanks I have. I am a fan of Kanger and I will continue to be until I am lead to try another type of tank and in doing so will give me the "hit" I look for every time I vape.

I received my Vamo V5 Saturday and was disappointed that I did not receive the batteries or tank I ordered at the same time. I ordered all three items froom ebay and was very worried that I would receive bad products as I have been burnt on occassion from getting electronic items from ebay. So I was very interested in doing whatever I needed to do to make sure my new Vamo was everything I had hoped it would be.
I called up the local BM which over prices all the products they sell and asked them what they were asking for a 18650 battery and a charger to go with it. She told me it would run me around $36.00. I thought for a second and I was out the door and on my way to get the battery just to see if the Vamo really worked. I got a mile down the road and thought, "what am I doing? I have batteries comingMonday and a new tank to boot." I turned the truck around and headed home.
All day Sunday I kept looking at the Vamo. I picked it up, pushed the buttons. Took the ProTank 2 I have on my eGo and put it on the Vamo and was just giggy with anticipation. Then Monday came and I was off to work. I could not wait until the tiime came until I was off and on my way home but I did not go home dear friends. I went to a local BM around my job and purchased a battery and charger from them just in case the battery did not show up today when I got home. I spent $22.00 there and got a better deal then if I went to the BM closer to the house.
Well I got home and sure enough, I got the batteries and the Kanger AeroTank to sit on top of it. Oh Boy I was like a child on Christmas Morning. I assembled the tan just as fast as I could, filled it with Cinnamon Red Hotty and slapped a battery in the Vamo. Hit the button 5 times and inhaled deeply. Wow, I was impressed. I then started playing with the buttons and soon found my "Sweet Spot". Life just does not get better then this.
I have been smoke free for a week now and there are no regrets and I do not want to look back. I love this mod and I hope it will be with me for a long long time.

For many years I have been wanting to stop the uncontrolable habit of smoking thise stinking cigarettes. I have tried everything in my power to stop. The gum did not work. The patches did not work. The meds I got from the doctor did not work. I was almost at a dead end when I told my doctor I did not know what I should do as my smoking was now starting to show evident signs of deteriorating my health and I was feeling like it was going to kill me before I could kill it.
My doctor then suggested that I stop in at a Vape Shop that was located near the Doctors Office and see if it was something that I may want to try. Well for the next couple of weeks, I drove by the place and lookedover at it as I was passing by but never committed to pulling in ... until 2 weeks ago when I finally pulled in.
Having never been to a Vape Shop before, I had no clue as to what was in there or what I should expect. All I knew about Vaping was what I gathered from using those Blu e-cigs which was nothing for the most part and even those failed to keep me from smoking. So I went in almost intimidated that I knew nothing about what I was stepping off into. When I got into the store, I went right up to the counter and there was another guy in there who I assume was as ignorant as I was on this Vaping thing. He would ask a question and she would answer, then I would ask a question and she would answer. He asked her if he could smoke dried herbs in the tanks and she said no and he was out the door in a second.
Now it was just me and her and I started asking realistic questions and she hooked me up with an eGo Twist starter kit that consisted of a battery, a charger, 2 plastic tanks and a bottle of juice. Then I started tasting the juices they had set out on a table for the customers to try and there were many of them. There was no systematic way they had them organized. They were on little lazt susan type trays and you could move it around and try the ones that went around the tray. I picked Banana Pudding for my Free one that came with the kit and I purchaased two more, a chocholate caramel and a vanilla mint.
I asked her how much Nicotine should I get and she asked me what I used to smoke. I told her and she suggested to get the 12mg. I asked her what was in the juices that I was testing and she said 8mg and I told her I was fine with that and that is what she sold me. She instructed me on how to fill the tank, how to turn the battery off, how to charge it and when to replace the tank. Got most of it but when I got home and tried to fill the 2nd tank, I was trying to do it upside down or fill it from the worng end and I ended up flooding the coil and ruining the 2nd tank that I had. So it was back to the Vape Shop the next day to purchase another disposable tank.
In that 1st week, I visited that Vape Shop almost every day and now have Mini Protank II's on my eGo batteries with glass tanks so I can use the cinnamon flavored juices. I also started a Vaping Group on Facebook and have joined several Forums to obtain more information on this Vaping World. The one thing I try so hard to do is to be knowledgible on what I am currently into and right now it is Vaping.
I have now been Smoke Free for almost a week and I look forward to many years being away from those stinking cigarettes.
