    Yes, I vape. I was a long time heavy smoker, and ecigs absolutely helped me quit for good. Haven't had a "real" cig in 4 years. Yesterday was my 4 year anniversary smoke-free.

    Same for me. I smoked for 30 years and quit overnight switching to vaping. My 4 year mark comes up in June!

    Congrats! Isn't it nice to lose the cough and be able to breathe, taste and smell again? :)

    Good on ya!

    Quick comment about the timestamps on here - they seem to be way off. I made my first comment at around 5:00 PM CST yesterday, yet it displays as 9:40 PM. Could this be something I need to configure in my settings, or is the server somewhere in the Atlantic ocean? ;-)

    Yes sir. In your account settings you should be able to change your time-zone.

    I've gotten into Do it Yourself Ejuice. It's so much cheaper and I recommend looking into it if you vape a lot.

    I smoked for years as well. One year free from all nicotine. I never got into vaping.

    Super congrats to you! I don't think it was so much a nicotine thing for me as it was the hand/mouth habit. I smoked for 40 years, and just the physical habit was so hard to break. E-cigs eventually satisfied that habit. A 3-day hospital stay with bronchitis also helped the process of substitution along, if you know what I mean. ;)

    Absolutely, I just hope the FDA and "Big Tobacco" don't kill the vaping industry!

    The vape industry will never die. There will always be a source/people will make their own devices. the batteries are common amongst much more than ecigs and making your own e-juice is too easy if one were to learn how.

    Big Tobacco will be buying into the vape industry because the tobacco industry is going to die due to state "sin tax" taxation. When I started smoking, real cigs were $0.25 a pack. What are they now?

    They have been for a while. Notice more and more "cool sounding" gas station devices popping up that require little ejuice canisters (disposable) and being sold by Reynolds/Morris.

    Yep, Big Tobacco is banking on overseas cigarette sales and U.S. vaping.

    I do, I'll be 4 years without cigarettes this year. I got really big into vaping for a while, even started my own business selling them. That kind of flopped and I got to where I got tired of the "big cloud" thing, so I just use a very basic set up now but it works for me and is super cheap to run.

    Never smoked or vaped but this week I got a disposable vape pen with Hemp (CBD) oil. There is no nicotine, but hemp is used for medicinal purposes. I can't say it has done much for me but I might need a stronger oil.
