    Oh I understand the tinkering side of it....I just have no time to put into it, or want to.
    It's definitely cool all the things you can do, but your right it's about taste, decent vape,
    and minimal fiddling with em!
    My goal is to get away from all of the smoking, and the less involved with it I can be the better.
    So far I had half a cig this morning, been using this MOD so far today! I'm happy about that!

    It probably is, long as it works that's fine with me...:)

    Congratulations! You've made it this far so you've gone through the hardest days. I quit a long time ago but had the habit bad. They didn't have much to help with it back then so I started tucking snuff under my lip as a substitute for cigarettes. Yeah, that became a bit of an addiction too but not as bad as cigarettes. Then one day a flake of snuff got between a tooth and the gums. It became pretty infected before I knew what the cause was. That then ended the snuff for me.

    What ever works, do it. You do absolutely get to a point where you can't stand the smell of a cigarette and don't want to be around them.

    I have found it only takes a day for cigarettes to taste and smell horrible. So far, I still have not had one which is about two weeks now I think. But holy crap am I going through the juice lol. I'm killing a 100ml bottle in less than a week. But, my new toy (RDA) sucks through it faster than anything else I have. But damn it tastes good!

    lol. I only hit two flavors, and that is Mint Chocolate Chip, which I mix myself, and Cinnamon Red Hot, which I currently purchase from a vape shop. But I have ordered some flavoring to see if I can replicate it.

    How's the vaping going Tony? I am still on the fence (although I vape more now than smoke, i just can't get away from the garage experience of smoking out there working on something...GRRRRR! I went to Ohio this past week for 4 days vape only now ciggs. What did I do? Went out to the garage to mess with my SR that has been behaving badly for some reason, and before I knew it there was that Marlboro hanging out of my mouth!!!!! Probably should not keep that pack in my tool box!
    Ahhh i found a killer tank that I am going to get this weekend.....it is bad A....! It's called a Smok TFV4 It has monster coils in it, and its versatile where you can make it a drip tank also! It also has a swivel head so that you can fill it from the top without unscrewing anything or taking the tank off to fill it!
    Also anyone tried Milkman Juice?? Awesome stuff.....Blows clouds so thick its a hazard driving down the road vaping because if your windows are up you'll have an instant fog going on!
    Well thats my update!

    I'm doing great. The ONLY urge that I had, and yes I gave in to it (more on that in a bit), was when I was trying this new beer I picked up yesterday. Something about drinking beer and smoking cigarettes that just go hand in hand.

    That tank looks awesome. I may be ordering one of those here soon. Quad coil with a .15Ω and up to 140w, Oh hell yes I'm game lmao. And they have a black one as well which will match my little KBox Mini perfectly. And yes, I will test it out on my 165w IPV3 lol.

    Never tried that juice. I mainly mix my own.

    So, onto my update and the rest of what I stated above.

    I do still have the occasional craving. Mainly when the wife decides to fire up a smoke (she doesn't want to quit even though she tells me she does). So I told her, "If you are going to keep smoking, then I'm going ot keep smoking". And that is what I did for a while. I would light one up out of her pack (I have not had a pack to myself for about a month now) and smoke it as she is smoking hers. She did tell me she feels bad about that situation, but she still is not stopping. However, I'm about to give up on that. I'm back to the point of not liking the taste of them, definitely not liking the smell of them in my house and just want away from them for good.

    That is going ot happen come Monday when I leave this house for who knows how long on my new little "business venture". I will not take anything but vape stuff with me including about 300ml of my favorite juice, 100ml of my CRH juice which I just purchased yesterday (it's the only juice I purchase now) and my batteries and chargers. Need to figure out how to connect those up to the truck... That is going to be interesting.

    So that is my update. Only smoked to get back at the wife in hopes she would just set them down but failed. So, if she wants to smoke, she can do it here without me here. I will be out fat stacking Bengies as fast as I can...

    Keep up the good work Rodney and yes, remove the pack from teh garage lol. In fact, remove the packs from anywhere you go! lmao.

    Oh yeah I forgot that tank came in black also....that's the one I will have siting on my mod tomorrow!
    My wife stopped smoking cigs 4-5 months ago...grrr!
    She vapes exclusively, and now really likes it once we went sub ohm.
    I think she's a cloud snob now, loves being able to fog with her mod and tank.
    Yeah I gotta get past the garage/tinker hook. I really don't enjoy cigarettes, they really stink now, the garage smells like an ash tray too. My hitch though is, I don't like to stop to vape...a cigarette hanging in my mouth I can just draw on.
    I do love this milkman juice though, it's very addictive! Wife loves it too.
    What's funny was she always had to have a menthol in here juice this she doesn't.

    Anyway keep it up Tony, don't worry about the wife and her smoking, that's her deal she'll either quit or not.

    With all of the crap that is smacking me in the face right now, I'm sure this vape thing is not going to last. Way too much stress right now to deal with anything.

    Heck I have this friend that she'd say I quit smoking, and then be back smoking an hour later one time, and a day later the next.....she was a 3 pack a day smoker...but she kept quitting, and smoking, till one day she stopped...that was 20 years ago!
    So just give it another shot sometime, and just keep trying!

    I figured I would bring this thread back since I'm back on this road again. And speaking of being on the road, that is the number one reason I kept smoking. I quit smoking while I was working at the base and stayed off of them for quite a long time. When I started driving, I started smoking again. Now that I"m back out of a truck, I find it so much easier to quit.

    In all truthfulness, I have not 100% quit smoking yet. But I'm close. When my wife lights up in the house, I want one. When I'm working on cars, I want one and when I get done eating, I want one. About 25% of those times, I have one. Not because I need one, but because I just want one.

    I do have to give a huge thanks to our sponsor, www.GearBest.com for stepping up and supporting my vaping channel on YouTube as well as RcHelpDotCom. They will be sending me a lot of vaping items, and with that, it will be much easier to quit smoking again.

    And of course, all of the support that I get from all of the members here is invaluable. Thank you all for the support.

    Your not lying. When I smoke, I wake up coughing up a lung for at least a few hours every morning. And I cough throughout the day. Just after 24 hours of not smoking though, the cough goes away. I have proven this fact a number of times. I just have to stay strong and make this one stick. Just mixed up a new 350ml batch of juice since I already went through the last one. The next batch is going to require an order of more flavoring. Unless I can come up with something with my 50 different flavors that I like lmao.

    Alright guys, just a little update.

    Yesterday, my wife conned me... I was out of whisky and my wife looked at me and said "I'm going to go get you a bottle". There was a short pause, then she said, while I'm there, I'm getting a pack of cigarettes... Crap, but I wanted whisky lol. So yesterday, i had 2 smokes. I think. May have only been one.

    But today, I have had NONE :yahoo:

    And not because she is not home, but because this morning, we were sitting at the table with the windows open (been beautiful here lately) and I had a fan in the window behind me pulling air out (north facing and we had a south wind). She lit up, and I almost couldn't take the smell. I had to get up and go into my office. Just something about that smell this morning, I couldn't do it. If I had one, it would not have been so bad, but I really do like NOT coughing lol.

    Today though, I had to rebuild my Alpha BFT. It started leaking yesterday (which led up to having a smoke) and today, I pulled it apart and looked at it. Everything looked fine so I put it back together and went to take a hit. Well, I grounded out one of the positive legs and burnt the crap out of the cotton (got red hot instantly at 80 watts). So I had no choice but to rebuild it.

    This tank has a Clapton coil in it (2 actually) and I noticed the outer wire is broke, but it's still working. I have ordered new wire, but I have to wait for it to come in. I clipped the leads that were sticking out, and I had to stuff it with more cotton than I had before. The last batch of juice I made has more PG in it, so it's thinner. This resulted in me having to pack more cotton in the holes to keep it from leaking. I did that, and I have been hitting the hell out of it all day. I love the taste of a freshly rebuilt tank lol.

    So there is my story for the last two days. I think I'm doing pretty good if I do say so myself with everything that is going on.
