    Hey all, I had been smoking cigarettes for years and nothing could help me stop, E- Ciggarette pens were useless and would break all the time, that was until quite a while ago I got a Smok alien kit, which I preferred over the G Priv as I got more flavour and a stronger hit, probably because of the tank comparison, but anyway I stopped smoking as this helped so much, but while I was buying the kit in the shop, I was asking for a high nicotine level for it, as I only care about the throat hits mainly (flavours always a bonus) and the owner was recommending i start off with 3 as he reckoned I couldn’t handle 6mg. 3mg was like smoking shisha to me, and when I tried 6mg, i got a few throat hits the first few puffs but then that would end up feeling like smoking shisha to me. I just ran out of E liquid so went to my local shop who sell 18mg flavours, I got the ‘Vivid’ berry blast flavour and this is just great for me, but i definitely wouldn’t mind going abit lower like 12-15mg, But alot of people recommend you don’t smoke past 6 or 9 on sub ohms?

    Welcome to VU.
    Only you know what nic level works for you. If your head isn't spinning it isn't too much nic. Your body will tell you when you need to step down the nic. If you mix a 18mg with a 12mg juice you will end up with a 15mg juice.

    Right thank you! My local shops only sell the semi basic one with the normal e cig starter kits so only 18mg was available, but the way people would make out as if the juice will burn out your vape or something haha. I smoke it on 50-60 watts now but if i probably went past 100, that’s when it would likely become intolerable for me

    Better juice options online or you could mix your own juice.

    Yeah I ordered 3 10ML 6MG ones, two caramels and one blue slush, they were good but not strong however they ran out very quickly the rest are 3mg which my sister uses. I just wanted a quick one while I place more orders, I don’t know how to make my own juice but i know it needs VG which I can get from a local shop, don’t know about PG, I was in scotland when I bought my kit because my cousin has a license for the cash and carry there, I just regret not buying more while i had the chance

    If you can't get pg you can use 10% distilled water. Most flavorings are pg based. I use dw in my mixes. Here in the US getting nic is not a problem. I use 100mg nic salts.

    Oh okay thank you! I’m not sure if I can find nicotine in London, but I’ll definitely have a look online if I can’t find it local

    You should join Planet of the Vapes forum. You will find great sourcing tips there for your location. Like here at VU, great bunch of helpful people. Very amusing as well.

    i think you are limited to 72mg max in UK?

    i sub ohm 60 mg at 50 watts, it is just personal preference

    Just out of curiosity, how many times a day do you hit your vape at that mg?

    Ahh I’m not sure what the max is, I think the most I seen was 32- 48mg, which is what i would put in my E cigarette which would break either way lol, And yeah I began lowering my wattage when I realised I could taste the coil if i put it past 120-150 watts. G priv doesn’t have that issue but the flavours taste a bit weirder on it for me, anyway 30+ MG would probably be a bit deadly for me lmao don’t know how ya do it!
