Hello all my new friends!

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I live in Central California. I am a civil engineer and I love my job. I was a smoker for 28 years, but kind of a strange one.. a pack of cigs would last me 3 weeks. Regardless, I could not quit no matter how hard I tried. I found vaping about 3 years ago and I enjoy it immensely. As a neurotic engineer I like to tinker with things and have recently started playing with RDAs and RTAs. I still need advice though from those who also like to build. I joined because I need help and I think this is probably the best forum for it. DIY is new to me and I am finding most of my mixes blah. I have just a simple request to start, can anyone point me towards the right thread? I admit this is the first forum I have ever joined and I hope I am not being improper in any way. I am excited to meet folks online, recently divorced after 28 years of marriage . All the success professionally , divorce makes you feel like such a failure. Ignore my Debbie Downer routine.... I am happy to be here,

Hi and welcome to VU! I can second the statement that this is a great place to learn to build and to mix your own e-liquid. My vaping has changed enormously since I've been here.

The "Daily Mixing Thread" (in the DIY sub-forum) is not as active as it once was, but if you have questions and post there, it will rouse the troops and you'll get some answers. We always love to have new folks participate in that thread.

Thank you! I will definitely check out the Daily Mixing Thread!

dont linger on a divorce, every instance that i know of the partner moves on to someone thatdoes not compare to you, believe me i know. all you need to do is think of the following saying.....
"and when the last great scorer comes to write against your name..he marks not what you won or lost...but how you played the game"
have a hug on me and bec...SMILE
 
awww such a cute smile

Welcome to the VU, Rebecca. You'll find friends and great info in this forum.

I gave away my coil making supplies after they sat unused for five years. I was afraid I would blow up my apartment, so I gave up. As an engineer, you'll probably be very handy at it.

Thanks Bliss Doubt.. While building coils came easy, being new to vaping the learning curve at how coil placement in each individual rda/rta has been problematic. I learned one size does not fit all LOL. My DIY venture though will probably be a different experience... Well, if you listen to my kids talk about the chicken balls I use to make... I am a terrible cook.

Welcome to VU! :cheers:

I'm in central CA as well. The links for DIY e-juice and building coils are a good place to start. Lots of good folks here to help you out. If this shaky handed, half-blind, cranky old fart can build coils and mix juice you can too.

Thanks Brian .. do I need a password for this dark underground you mention? It sounds like my kind of place!

Rebecca
I think he was joking about VU being the dark underground... Nothing dark here...

The hardest part of DIY is fitting a stash of nic base in the freezer. The mixing itself is easy when you start with simple, single-flavor mixes. That's where I'm at now. For more complicated stuff, there's plenty of advice here and e-liquid-recipes.com can be helpful.
 
Ciao lovely Rebecca!!! I come to visit you here! <3 Was nice for you to visit my thread. Maybe someday we meet over caffè and vapes when I in Miami, si. For today with this covid every place I stay in Italia. Soon I leave to mio famiglia villa in Sicilia for winter months. Is very pretty there, Si.

C U, bye bye!!! <3<3<3

I will try the single-flavor route as you suggest. My flavors should arrive this week and hopefully the nicotine I ordered will also.

Bellissima! Yes, maybe one day as friends and share stories of our adventures in life, perhaps with a view of the Mediterranean.

hi and welcome aless

tasmania is pretty and the people are very nice. i dont mind where i live as long as there are people with humor in them.

I had a friend who recently passed and he always bragged about being from Anbangbang Billabong. Maybe due to my ignorance, but I perceived it as sort of a badge of honor. He was a great guy and could out drink anyone without nay evidence of being impaired. We called him Matty the Damned... a tortured soul of sorts but never one to be taken lightly.

i compare the first people in australia to the first in america, both treated wrong but both unable to improve their country. they were happy as they were. in some ways they found what the present day people cant find, that is peace to just live of the land and be proud.
