Good to have you here with us Zombievaper. Welcome to ECA. Glad you "rediscovered" vaping.

As you now know, in spite of any propaganda issued by the FDA and health organizations such as the American Lung Association and American Cancer Society,etc. , vaping works. There are now thousands, tens of thousands that will attest to it.

I’ve had anxiety and stress issues for as long as I can remember, and at around 13 I’d had a particularly rough few weeks (home wasn’t exactly what anyone would call a healthy environment back then) and a friend suggested smoking might help me calm down. From there it just escalated. I’ve been trying to quit (cold turkey, patches, gum, never tried the meds though since I’ve already had bad experiences with anti-depressants) or cut back here and there for a few years now, but it never lasted long and I never managed to get below 1/2 a pack a day.

I found out in late November that my first child is on the way and decided it was time to find something that would work. I had initially discounted ecigs as an experience with a friend’s 0mg weak flavored gas station disposables years ago turned me off of them, and I wasn’t aware anything else existed. Then at random on another board I came across a discussion of PVs and got a lot of the "beginner" questions answered and explained to me by people that I knew weren’t trying to sell me something. I did some further studying and ended up ordering an ego T kit, and within a few days I was already expecting more vapemail. I’ve now been vaping for a little over two weeks and my last cigarette was a week ago today. I’ve already started to notice some of the positive changes in a minor capacity, and even if I wasn’t the fact that I don’t wake up wheezing every other day would have me hooked.

That old FDA report is like a bad rash that just keeps coming back….sheesh!

Indeed! Everyone who doesn’t want to bother with researching the subject automatically quotes that damn report. It is an FDA report after all so it must be accurate, right? <img src="” alt=”:lol:” title=”Laughing” />

Who dun it?

Way way back in the day when the Earth was new and dinosaurs roamed the earth in vaping time (or two years ago in real time) I was just starting out in vaping, I explored a few different companies (will not name the fails here) and was not overly impressed, but I kept at it till I found the right company for me. This company was vapor 4 Life, they had a strong line of good starter kits and basic products cigalikes only back then, but they hit the nail on the head for me.

I was blown away by their selection, the quality of their products and most of all their customer service. I had a problem with the charger that came with my kit and mentioned in on their sub forum here on the <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF. About 40 minutes later I get a PM from a staffer of theirs asking what my order number was so they could …. out a replacement, the kicker, this was at 12 am on a Sunday. From then on it was love at first puff. Thanks them them vaping has changed my life.

So who did it for you what company/product/<a href="”>juice/talking cricket first pulled you in or made you think vaping was "it" for you?

Does nicotine level deliver the "kick" ?..

I’m on a constant journey to find the sweet spot. I want that KICK.. That I get with cigarettes.

A friend gave me a bottle of <a href="”>juice called "spearmint".. It is 24mg and has the kick.

I just ordered 5 bottles of <a href="”>juices, they are all 16mg. Unfortunately they are way too mellow. I have to crank up my battery to full blast and it still is not quite there. I don’t like menthol, or spearmint, but I love that kick I got.

I was just wondering, next time I order a bunch of sweet flavors, should I get 24mg ?

some people tell me the nicotine levels are what gives you that kick, or "throat hit", but other say it isn’t.

When am I going to stop this search? Going on three months of trial and error with tanks, batteries, and flavors. When does it end? I almost smoked a cigarette today. My friend light up a Marlboro red and i was sitting there with my ecig barely hitting. I got a new battery, the etwist. I’m very happy with it and it delivers the voltage I like… But when am I going to find a good flavor??

I apologize for the rant. My question is this : do high nicotine levels deliver a better kick, or "throat hit" ?
