That's right.. if you live or are travelling between Lexington Ky and Ocala Fl .. or Louisville Ky and South South Carolina you owe Kyle a big thank you.

I am a nicotine junky. Not, I enjoy tobacco.. I mean a mean ugly crackhead type junky. I was the guy that chose cigarettes over food when crunch time hit.. I smoked cigarettes, pipe, cigar .. I chewed, dipped, used both Swedish and nasal suns. If I was smoking a low nicotine blend I would take smoke breaks while smoking..

On December 19, 2011 I tossed my last cigarette and promised my kids I would never smoke again. I had tried the patch, the gum, the little certs, hypnosis, cold turkey.. every thing but chantix.
But I had a secret weapon this time.. a 510T electronic cigarette and a promise to my kids.
I quickly outgrew the 510T.. through steady progression I now have top shelf equipment. A variable voltage Provari, and a REO Grand. I've had about a dozen different kind but I found what I like and what works ..

I started on 36mg (3.6% solution) e liquid and now I'm down into the 16-18mg range (1.6% and 1.8% respectively ). That's the equivalent of going from filterless camel to Marlborolights, or in pipe terms from GH&co Dark Birdseye to PSLNF. The only caveat is that at that level I need 8watts or so. On the REO I use a 3.7v battery with a 1.7 ohm atomizer to get 8.05 watts. On the Provari it doesn'tmatter what I use I can adjust it to around 8 watts. I found a short cut.. just take the resistance in ohms add two two it and set the voltage at that number.. 8watts ,mathematical magic.

I've been under a lot of stress lately.. well no, actually for the first time in my adult life I'm scared.
I lost one of my best friends this week and the docs said my very best friend is in trouble. Anyway, when it came time to leave this week guess what I did. I forgot my charger.
Oh crap.. but I'm not too worried, I have 4 batteries. Yeah, except we are on day three and have at least three more days work that popped up. Yeah Oh carp.

I was digging in my bag and what did I find? That crazy pink ego that Kyle bought. Lol. I'd been using it but wasn't really satisfied.. remember on the lower strength juice I need more wattage.. that little ego can't give me more wattage, all it has is 3.4 volt. PERIOD.
But wait. I have a 1.5 ohm atomized somewhere. I know I do, Empirrmods sent it to me.. yup there it is. Muhahaha.. 7.7 watts. Close enough.

Kyle, the city of Atlanta will be issuing you the Key to
the City shortly. Thank you again for the 'gag' gift!



Ps. Ecigs aren't that hard, I'm just a tweeker nerd.

Laughing

If that silly damned thing got a laugh outta you AND perhaps saved the day, hell, it was worth the price of admission ten-fold. Cool

I'm learning more and more about eCigs than I ever thought I would, though... scratch Laughing

Oh I could boar your pants off ...

Like the various propylene glycol / vegetal glycerin mixtures. Or how high voltage /resistance puts out more vapor than low voltage / resistance even though the theoretical power is equal. Or how to increase the simulation of inhaling smoke via nicotine content vs power. Or the subtle difference I. Variable voltage vs variable wattage.

But if I did that y'all would think I'm nuts.

So you're off tobacco,,,feel any better?

I quit cigarettes about three weeks ago cold turkey. I was smoking a pack or so a day while on the computer this summer. Smell and taste are returning, down to a pipe or two a day (not inhaling) and tasting better. Lungs are still cleaning themselves. I thought about going Ecig but I procrastinated past it.

Thanks Kyle for giving PB the pink stick.

Ouch.




Yes I can breath , smell, taste.. I haven't coughed in forever.
I tried cold turkey ten thousand times...

I'm no longer a smoker though.. I vape. I'm still a nicotine junky I just partake in a less harmful manner.

I'm sure the instructions don't suggest vaping in that orifice, but...as you said... trucker. Capable of just about anything. Laughing

Who said anything about orifices. I was just making a size comparison.

What, you need stretch marks on your lips to vape satisfactorily? Laughing Razz

Needed to read this thread. Am laughing myself silly here.



Pheeeww.. after all of my graduate work reading (am still only a third of the way through one class with another to go that has even more reading.... oy) this was the break I needed.



Glad to hear the ecigs are working for you PB.
