'Ello everyone New member from Lismore, NSW I've been smoking for about 5-6 years quite heavily and never enjoyed the cravings I got every 15-25 minutes to have another one... or two. First started vaping a few years ago but without nicotine and after a month or two ended up putting it down and got back on the durries since I wasn't totally happy with my vaping experience and didn't really look into how I could make it better. Picked vaping back up a bit over 4 months ago and had a much better experience. I started again with 0mg and went from 40-50 smokes a day down to 4-6. I ordered some nicotine juice from heathersheavenlyvapes (yep they're still around) and wasn't satisfied with the flavour but straight away the cravings diminished to the point of barely noticing them. I haven't bought a pouch of tobacco in those 4 months and only had 3-4 smokes when I've been without a mod. I am so happy I found this alternative to smoking. One part I really enjoy is the cravings for nicotine have faded so much it's not a constant impulse even though I'm vaping nicotine (went from 6mg > 3mg > 2.5mg > 1.75mg without any plan to do so). I can go hours, sometimes a whole day without thinking about vaping or wanting a smoke. If I do get cravings after a long abstinence its not overwhelming and I always crave a vape, rather than needing a cigarette. I tried a whole bunch of the vapoureyes juice line but again found the flavours pretty terrible and spent a bit of money finding that out. I was lucky to meet a DIYer in a facebook group that sells domestically for half the price of store bought stuff. I immediately made an order and purchased some nicotine from vapoureyes NZ to mix myself. I got lucky and found someone with a very good palate that has been mixing a few years and loved every flavour I tried... and every flavour I've tried since. Recently in the last two weeks I've gotten into doing some DIY for myself for a bunch of reasons and am having a lot of fun with it, making some recipes I find online, or creating my own. I'm a lot more informed this time and really enjoying the hobby side of it rather than just sticking to my old kangertech topbox mini solely as a tobacco replacement. The only thing I haven't delved into is complex coil building and mod making. My gear includes: 2 retired Kangertech Topbox Mini's (first ever mod, got two cause of a postage mixup) Smok G-Priv (first mod I got when I first started vaping again and currently still in use) Geekvape Aegis Hexohm 3.0 (currently being repaired) Driptech TS (in the mail) Pulse Squonk mod (in the mail) 2 Dead Rabbit's 2 Aromamizer Plus' (much loved but not well used since the rabbit came) SXK Kennedy Clone (my second rda) Govad RDA (my first rda) Serpent SMM RTA (not getting used) Ammit Dual RTA (also not getting used) Wasp Nano (in the mail) Peerless Special Edition RDA (going to sell, unopened) Merlin RDTA (also unopened and going to sell) ... ...Couldn't forget my trusty EZ Dripper since I always overdrip/underdrip unless I take off the top cap every 20 seconds (I like to chain vape). Best 10$ I spent. I think that about sums me up; I might update with a photo of my computer/vape desk in the morning, Thanks for having me.
