      3 years off the fags using vapes.

      There's loads of stuff out there you can use.
      The pod things you get from the supermarket etc are pretty crap.
      If you want to stick with the vapes, have a trip to your local vape shop and get some advice.
      Can be a bit pricey getting set up, but after that, it's cheap as chips, especially if you make your own coils and juice.

      Yeah mate got an Endura T18, was only £25 so it'll do me for a while as it seems to be doing the trick so far.

      Will may be upgrade it in a while.

       :laugh:
      Loads of tutorial videos on youtube.

      This morning I'm using a Sigelei 75w with a Trillium tank, and Atlantis coil in it.
      Juice is grumpy custard 6mg

      I got into making my own coils, but it was honestly more trouble than it was worth, so just bought stock coils.

      I've got about 10 different setups  :laugh: all box mods apart from a Tesla Stealth.

      I honestly know f**k all about them mate, will take a look at the ones you posted when I get a chance.

      Bought it Monday and I had it I near bounced it off the wall after half an hour, wouldn't work and for the life of me I couldn't understand why, so brought it back and there was a dud coil in it ffs.

      Actually had to buy a packet of smokes it was getting on my tits that much  :D

      It's always a problem with those cheap all in one jobs.
      Some are OK, from what I've heard, but some are crap.

      I experimented quite a lot when I first started vaping, but quickly settled on box mods and stock coil tanks.
      Easy peasy that way.
      Only problem is for box mods you need batteries (mostly) and a charger.

      With juice I get 100ml mix kits from a place called Justaddnic and it works out less than 2 quid for 10ml

      Lots of different products and advice out there if you carry on with it.

      I found it was the only thing kept me off the fags, and I'm slowly bringing down the nicotine strength in my juice now so I can bin vaping as well.

      Yeah I aim to lower the nicotine as I go on, and eventually get off the vape as well.

      On the 18mg to start with.

      Haven't even tried any mad flavours, just went with the tobacco flavoured one to start me off.

      There's plenty of choice out there anyway and some absolutely mad flavours that I've seen but will stick with the tobacco one for now.

      Well done higgy they say if you can do something for 21 days running you can do it for life.
      I have bought a few friends Vapes and they all ended up packing up completely and have saved a fortune you might be able to go to the match !
      Keep it up.

      Nice one pal.

      Only on day 4 but couldn't even have made it this far without the Vape.

      Can honestly say I haven't even thought about a ciggie.

      Well done mate. That’s the way - ignore the blip move on.

      When I gave up the grog for about 6 months a few years back I kept a diary counting the days and writing down the exercise I did.

      As I saw the list of what I could do get longer (and my waistline get slimmer ;)) my resolve hardened.

      I still keep it now - wee x and a yellow mark at the weekends when I sink a couple :)

      Might help - did me.

      This is - I know - gonna sound outrageously patronising but it is meant sincerely.

      I always feel heart sorry for smokers when I see ‘em huddled outside the boozer / restaurant on a ‘freeze the bollocks off you’ night.

      Firstly that must be sh*t in and of itself but to be so in thrall to a habit / addiction must be even worse.

      Don’t get me wrong I’m a massive advocate of the smoking ban - but I do still feel for those people when I see it.

      I’m no fan of the ban, I mean as you say groups of smokers huddled outside and you have young children walking past, not a good look..I think there should be a designated areas indoors with the correct ventilation..

      Smoked 3 in the last day.... saw it coming to be honest & I guess dealing with an alcoholic brother who is on self destruct does not help..

      Life isn’t absolute mate. Don’t beat yourself up.

      Very hard watching someone you love self harming and (in my experience) self deceiving.....

      Couple fags is neither here nor there.

      Still going well.

      Although my down fall is when on the beer.

      Would need to go off the beer to completely go off the smokes.

      Like that's gonna happen.
