But, having to pay $27.00+ a packet of 40 was really starting to p me off and I could not justify throwing money away like that anymore. I had heard about e-cigarettes and thought nothing to lose. I got online and ordered a 510, nic and flavours and have not looked back. I have now ordered an eGo for hubby for christmas and he can't wait for it to arrive.

    Occasionally through the day I think I would like a cig but quickly push that thought away. I still have half a packet of cigs in my desk draw and can't bring myself to throw them out yet (don't know why). My husband thought I would never ever ever be able to give up the cigs, and I believe this time I have... for good!

    I love this forum, it is such an inspiration and I am learning so much.
    40 years smoking. That would have to put you in the over 50s camp. Yippee, we're taking over. Welcome aboard!

    Hi All,

    I wouldn't say I am new to ecigs or new to this forum, but i've just received a smack in the face for posting in the for sale forum for not introducing myself

    I have been smoking cigarettes for over 10 years. Around 3 years ago, a friend brought out a joye 510 and I was quite curious on what it was and this was where my fascination began.

    After doing some research I too purchased a 510 and was off analogs for several months. Unfortunately a close friend past away and during this time I relapsed and until around a year ago I started with Ecigs again.

    This time armed with an Joye Ego-T but after while the leaking got annoying and I decided to change to a Mini Nova as it was all the rave back then. Soon after that, I moved to Boge Cartomizer tanks and it was great for a while but then I wanted a glass tank so I didn't have to worry about juice cracking the plastic tank. The pro tank or pootank as some of you may call it was my next choice and at this point in time I still occasionally use it but prefer the pro tank 2.

    Recently I've been bored and have been looking into mechanicals and creating my own coils and wick. Today, I am using a pro-tank 2 with a diy coil at 1.5ohm and organic cotton wick powered by a vamo v4. This has made a huge difference in both vapour and flavour and I am quite enjoying it. The Vamo is a bit big in my opinion and I have ordered some mechanical clones such as the nemesis and chi from vaporbreak and fast tech.. hopefully these will arrive before Christmas. I've also ordered a kayfun clone as well after seeing some glowing reviews so I am hanging for that to arrive. I would love to buy genuine but they are a little pricey however I've recently come across the microstick by Chels and this is something I wouldn't mind paying for

    I get all of my juices from MtVaporBaker and some of my favourites include Green Apple, Double mint gum, Mango tea. I also like to mix it up with a bit of menthol as well.

    Thanks for reading and I'll make sure to post pictures when the items are received in the mail.

    Cheers,

    Will

    Hi there. New to AVF, but not to vaping or vaping forums. I usually camp out at ECF and on reddit (ECR), but you folks seem real friendly, and it's always nice to get a different perspective on things. It seems that y'all use a lot of U.S. vendors, so I should be able to put my 2 cents in from time to time and provide some insight. I also started DIYing my juices a few months ago, and I have already come up with a few successful recipes. I tend to stick with tobacco flavors, though. I am looking forward to being a productive member and learning a thing or two from AVF.

    Concentrates for now, but I am no slouch when it comes to cooking or chemistry, so tinctures and double boiler extractions are not too far off in my future. I much prefer natural tobacco extracts to synthesized flavors, at least as far as flavor goes. The biggest problem I have seen with NETs is equipment friendliness. They can be pretty tough on wicks/coils, so it is imperative to filter them properly without losing the essence of the flavor. I have looked into the methodology behind the whole process, and although the whole process is rather simple, it's not something I will be exploring just yet. I still enjoy studying what others are doing in their own "labs" so I will definitely be giving your thread a thorough look-see.

    I am having a bit of a issue of them clogging my coils, usually can vape around 3.5ml then have to wash the coil with boiling hot water, That's using a resuable coffee filter, I think I'll try 500 mesh and see how that goes.
