    You crack me up

    Most intense flavor RDA I ever tried was the Cyclone - also as Cromwell would say - butthole tight

    I sold mine to Brewski - was too hot for my tastes, even for tootle puffing

    My asthma forbids much heat, and too much vapor just chokes me -- and it wouild seriously annoy my husband. What I exhale looks very similar to what i exhaled when I smoked... just tastes and smells one hell of a lot better. :)

    yeah i dont have asthma but I can understand why you wouldnt want much vapor. When i exhale it's kinda like a fog machine to a certain extent and if i chain puff I kind of haze the room my mom likes to complain when I do that, tells me to stop and that im not smoking a joint lol I dont listen to her though and I'm trying to go bigger.

    I can only imagine how much I would have most likely coughed if i tried it when i first started vaping lol cause when i first started my lungs and throat needed an hour or so to get used to the vapor.

    When I first started, what I liked best about vaping was that the throat hit was better than my ultra-lights, but didn't make me cough -- I never had that new-vaper cough. I've stayed pretty close to the way I vaped at first, though now I make my own coils and juice.

    could be cause i started with a 7.5w max vape pen and 24mg/ml it was probably more of the nicotine that did it than the vapor i think

    I had smokers cough for twenty years - and it completely went aways in my 2.5+ years of dual use

    Once I finally quit smoking the vapers hack was horrible in the mornings and lasted about three months

    Probably so. I had a cigalike at first, but had to use 6mg or it just made me wanna heave. Then I got an iTaste vv3, which went to 11w, but i usually stuck to 7 or 8 watts, 6 watts when I first got up in the morning. When I got a Kayfun, I went up to about 10w, even maybe 10.5; when I got the Achilles, I had to drop back to 9w, because the TH was so intense in the Achilles, and also dropped from the 10mg I had gotten to when I came back from my dual-use relapse, to 9mg, again because of the TH. It was so easy, I kept dropping, till I got to 5mg; I probably would have stayed there, till the FDA shit hit the fan in July 2016, when I started reducing again, and got to 3mg, where I plan to stay.

    yeah when I first got a box mod about 2 months ago and started smoking less and less I noticed that I was couging up mucous every now and then but I feel like that was just my lungs clearing out some of the crap left behind from smoking cause it stopped after a few days and I use 6mg i have a couple of 9mg 10ml bottles just to see how it'd be for me and I'm not going to repeat that decision again lol,im still going to use the 9mg/ml but 6mg is where i need to stay at

    Flavour Art has some good cherry flavors but cant go over %1.5. Anything more than that and it taste bad.

    Yes, I found FA cherry to be the best. They have a few cherry flavors and all that I tried worked well.


    With the peach, any peach works. I tried FA, FW, Caps and they all worked well but the white peach has to be FA

    Somehow or other, I managed to bruise the bottom of my foot last night during the xmas decorating. I was kind of afraid it might be a return of the painful swelling I had before I discovered coconut water, but even lying in bed for 7 hrs didn't help the pain, and when I had that edema problem, elevating my legs DID help tremendously; my feet/ankles would be normal when I first woke up. So I guess I stepped on something that bruised my foot, dammit to hell. Ibuprofen, garçon!

    Very cool, Lynn! I guess they ARE still good for SOMETHING.... ;)

    Been wrapping gifts this AM. Realized that the STM RBA head I ordered to go with the Kanger Toptank is part of the shipment from FT that left Beijing on the 11th and STILL has no further tracking, so I ordered a STM RBA head from Sweet-Vapes, along with a Melo ECR head for that Melo 3 I won and passed on to him.

    Ordered some stocking-stuffers last night, from Kidney Puncher... a bunch of angled adapters -- he likes 'em too! -- 2 of which are for MOI -- and some vape bands, since he seems to like tanks that have glass. Also just now ordered a book from amazon for a series he's reading; $15.82 and 2 days to my door for FREE. Gosh I love Prime. :D

    Any of y'all know anytthing about the Geekvape Griffin? KP had those for a BITCHIN price, though when I triede to add it to my cart, it said out-of-stock... but even at regular prices, they're not expensive, since they've been around a while. Just kinda wondering how airy it is, since he likes a VERY-airy MtL vape. Might get him one of those for his 6-mo smoke-free date, on Jan 5, which is still inside the xmas 12 days. :)

    I'm starting to get annoyed with my offspring; he told me that taking 2 exams today meant he'd be home around 2-ish, and now it's after 3, and I wanted to go to several stores plus the PO today... there isn't gonna be time for all that, before it's time to pick up the mate from work. :mad:

    The post office was a fucking disaster -- 20+ people in line, ONE postal worker minding the counter. :facepalm: So, the spawn will have the truck tomorrow too, so his penance for forgetting me today and going to fucking lunch with his stupid fucking friends is to be sitting in the PO parking lot at 8:15am tomorrow so when they open at 8:30, he's there!

    Made it to a couple of the stores, and he and the mate are hitting the other 3 on the way home from work. And it just started raining, so when you combine just-commenced rain with rush hour traffic, I hope they bring the truck and themselves home intact.

    The main PO in our town might be better, they probably have more employees; the one we went to was a sort of satellite office nearer our house, and it's often a disaster; xmas shipping is just the icing on the fucking fruitcake. :facepalm:

    This was the main post office in my town.

    Only 2 windows and only one was in use.

    come to think of it there is only one PO in town...

    Heh, I used to live in a town like that, while we were raising the spawn. but now...

    gwinnettcomparedtoATL.jpg

    Gwinnett county is outlined in red -- look at the size of it compared to "metro Atlanta," the part that's inside the other circle, which is the Perimeter, I-285. We have a main PO here in Lawrenceville, it's the county seat, and then there's about 10 diff "satellites" all around the county. and they're all usually jammed. :facepalm: I wish all these damn yankees would go back where they came from, there's too damn many people here!

    Heh, the pop. of L'ville was 30,500 as of 2015; Gwinnett had 895,000 as of 2015, might be near or over 1 mil by now. The only county in GA that has more people is Fulton, where Atlanta is.

    I had to go to the post office the other day and damnit, they had one person ahead of me and I had to wait. :teehee:

    Really, I did and there was one person. Started chatting with them and the girl working the counter and forgot about the time :giggle:

    Gotta love a small town :D
