    Still a newbie to the vaping scene, been approx 3-4 months now. I've gone from 15 smokes a day to 0. Had been smoking for over 10 years.

    I love smoking, smoke anything lol but the cost was just too much over health worries for me.

    I hope to keep up the vape and maybe ween off the nicotine eventually. (at 12mg atm)

    Hitting up local forums to get the goss and recommendations on everything I can to educate myself and get the best bang for my buck.

    Try not to stress weaning off nic. A ten year smoking habit is enough to make physical changes in your brain, hardwiring you to the dependence.

    People do it, sure. But over several years and often by accident not planning.

    Yeah I have no expectations it will be soon. Hopefully Australia's laws won't inhibit the ability to get nic juices.

    Can't say I don't want one here and there or I'll never have one again, but yes it's a health and wealth change for the good.

    I haven't reduced my nic intake since I started vaping over 6 years ago, don't plan to & don't expect to vape less nic any time in the future.
    Nicotine isn't any worse for us than caffiene, if it was we wouldn't be told we can use traditional NRT like patches indefinitely, it's the smoke that kills/harms us, not the nicotine.

    I enjoy vaping & other recreational nicotine (snuff, snus), it isn't harming me like smoking was & so I will probably continue vaping until I am no more.

    I'm in Noes boat.
    In fact we're sharing oars.

    Everybody has been brainwashed into believing nicotine is the devil here when in reality it isn't.
    It's the untold remaining crap in a cigarette that's the devil.

    I have every expectation to be vaping until I'm 6 ft under and even then I'm going to request a mod accompany me.

    Why not?

    Modern day living is choc a block with crap from all directions why can't I enjoy a little something that I'm convinced is never going to kill me or anybody else.

    Enjoy your life while you can is my motto.

    That'd be true except the boat capsized under Australian "regulations" :

    Good question!
    The boat has an air pocket where everything is dry above the water line.
    So there is obviously some squonking going on there with a 1L silicone water bottle in someone's pocket, filled with ejuice, feeding a hookah style atty with 2 tubes coming off & powered by a waterproof mod ;)
