    Default Getting off the fags, try and save my lungs.

    Afternoon folks,

    So the time has come for me to get off the ciggies and try and stop smoking.

    I see lots of you guys have had success on here with vapes. I've tried a few times but failed miserably. I also see your all having success making your own juice with THC.

    I read the posts but it's all jargon to me lol!

    I smoke about 12 ciggies a day and half a ciggie per spliff. I've got a mighty vape but rarely use it. I don't feel I need to have high nicotine at all and would probably be ok with the lowest amount possible.

    What vapes would you recommend for quitting smoking and also for making my own vape juice with THC?

    As I spend so much on ciggies, money isn't an issue and I would get any initial out lay back pretty quick.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Reckon I be knowin how tough it be to give up the smoke pilgrim. Took me about 5 times to kick the habit but once yual commit to it ya can do just fine. I used those nicotine patches and must say once ya commit and get 6 months under yur belt it does get easier. Hope yual can find yur strength to gettr done and break free cause Im sure yur loved ones round ya would be happy to see ya settin by the fire longer Good luck pilgrim hope yual do fine but its goin to take strength and will power but once ya get past it it will be the best thing yual ever did. Im 10 years smoke free well cig smoke free and I never even thinks about smoking anymore well cigarettes that is Wish ya luck and ifin ya need support my fire be lite fur ya friend

    I'll have quit 1 year next week (Big pat on the back for me) If I can do it anyone can I got me a cheap starter kit from the local vape shop innokin T18E for £25 quid. The T18E mk 2 has just come out same price so I would go for that one...I started off with the premixed juice 10ml bottles which where 4 for a tenner. I mix my own now 50/50 PG & VG add the flavor concentrate then the nic shots...I stared at 6mg nic im now down to 3mg...Loads of online calculators for making your batch up, you can make 150ml which lasts me a month for around £15 quid...

    Thank you my man, and well done on kicking the habit. Thanks for the kind words too. My problem with quitting before was always alcohol, I just folded and smoked non stop with a beer lol.

    I don't drink alcohol anymore, so that problem should be out of the window now. If I can quit the drink, I should be able to conquer the ciggies. Cheers pal

    Nice 1 BL and yeah, huge pat on the back for you gaffa. This hill is not easily climbed and 1 year on you're still holding strong. Kudos to you.

    Do you mix any THC juices at all or do you straight vape buds? Or blunts?

    Cheers for the info mukka

    Hiya bud I packed in for just 2 months with one of those vypes was doing well until the seal broke after just a couple of weeks and started leaking, went to get a new part it was obsolete
    Does this one need after market parts and if so are they easy to get?
    Cheers

    But these have the best battery life, best damage resistance and ease of use. 5000ma batteries mean its whole day per charge pretty much.

    However....

    You may want something thats mouth draw to start with until you adjust. These you pull like a bong

    You can do it Iron, I know you can, hell I did, and I can't do anything. Just through those things away and don't look back.

    I think it's fantastic you're looking to quite the stinkies Ironman, it was the best thing I did around 5+ years ago and I haven't looked back since

    I saw my health get better very quickly mate, and where I had started to breath a little heavy up hills etc, all that soon stopped when I went to vaping. It takes a little getting used too, one of those things that feels like it might not hit the spot straight away but you soon get used to it and you'll soon be experimenting with liquids, going heavy with the VG and blowing massive clouds lol (most of us go through this stage, some keep with it).

    There are a couple of ways you can go about this ;

    Go for a completely re-buildable set-up where you make the coils and possibly even make your own ejuice, HOWEVER, I would not recommend this way for someone just starting out as it can be very overwhelming.

    These days it's quite simple, you can go for a set-up that is great for people starting out like yourself and the only thing you will ever need to do is remove an old coil and replace it, charge/change batteries and of course, filling up your tank.


    The type of Vaping Mod, can be down to what type of person you are, do you want to go small and stealthy? or perhaps loud and proud lol. Here is a mod I am using now and can recommend ;

    It is the SMOK Mag 225W TC and is very comfortable in the hand, easy to use and in my opinion great for starters, you can switch out coils very easily.. but also has great features to get stuck into once you're comfortable to perhaps get into it further later on down the road ..like building your own coils if you wanted too with an RBA (ReBuildable Atomizer) etc.



    Make sure to get some good and SAFE batteries, I use only one guy on ebay and he's well trusted in the vaping community in the UK, has testing equipment and posts results of batteries and shares with the public to make sure they are safe!!

    He goes by the name of 'Torchy the battery boy' - can be found on ebay with the name : big_f_d_d Ebay Item number 123697691772 - Send him over a PM and ask him which batteries he would recommend for the mod and coil you have (once you have decided on one), he know his stuff and will only recommend batteries he has tried and tested and will be safe to use with your particular set-up. (I'll PM you with details on getting a discount if you want).

    If you like the Smok and decide to go with it, choose the 0.4 ohm coils, rather than the 0.12 ohm ones, you can delve into the latter once you have experience and understand it all better!


    As far as E-juice, over the 5+ years I've been vaping..I've gone through literally the lot!, cheap juice..expensive juice, looking for exotic flavours etc, really got into it quite heavily lol..you might go through this yourself and that's fine because you'll find flavours to suit you and it's always exciting trying out new flavours, it's quite a journey mate...however, to get you started google ' driphacks ' and in my opinion they sell good juices for a good price

    If you need any more advice, let me know

    This part is a little advanced but I'll write it out simply so you get a small idea of the possibilities ;

    You can also get into making your own ejuice, this can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be..

    You can buy flavours along with VG or PG

    VG = Vegetable glycerin - This is thick but smoother on the throat, allows you to blow massive clouds, however the negative being it delivers less flavour.

    PG = Propylene Glycol- This is very thin, like water, harsh on the throat and some have intolerances to PG, however it delivers flavour in the bucketload.

    So you can see how much you want to add of each can be absolutely dependent on your own taste..very personalized stuff!!..many go with a 50/50 mix, those who react badly with PG either go full VG (can clog out the coils quicker), or just a heavier ratio of VG with a small amount of PG.

    So at this point you can purchase different flavours and make your own e-juice completely personalised for your own taste lol...it's not that difficult but getting good results can be, there are ejuice calculators which will help you with ratio amounts.

    Or you can simply buy your own VG and PG, check out Classikool - Ebay item number 361353464753 ..Good product and I've been happy with them for years.

    THEN once you have your own VG/PG you can purchase a concentrated mix of an already completed flavour..mix it in with the PG/VG and you're good to go..it's simple and can save money.

    Good luck bud!
