Vaping is the future!


#1

I wonder how many of us vape if any of you do at all! It helped me quit smoking (i quit in one day) 4 months ago and haven’t smoked again.

For those of you who dont know what vaping is: Using a tank or dripper that contains a coil with cotton inside. Basically you drip the juice or fill the tank (it has flavoring, VG, PG and nicotine) on it and vape away. For some its an art as they make their own coil for others simply a way to quit smoking. The major parts of vaping is the tank/dripper and the mod its sitting on either a mechanical or a regulated box mod with batteries inside that heat up the coil and create the vapor.

If anyone wants/needs help to quit smoking and has not been able to do so with the traditional methods let me know and i can help you shake the awful habit by explaining how it works, what to get etc.

Some examples:

This is what vaping is:

Worth every penny and this is a setup from someone who has spent alot of money on vaping and i know my stuff. I have more mods and mechs and boxes than most and this is the most (constant) vape cloud/flavor combo out there for the price.


Sooo, "vape" gear?

Paging @tommy2118 :wink:

It’s kind of controversial. Sometimes I go to a local boardgame shop to play games, and three or four of the guys will be vaping inside the game room, filling the room with the scent. I don’t particularly care for it, so I don’t go very often. Vape away, but be mindful of others, is my only opinion/advice.


#4

I have been vaping for about 5 or 6 years now. I can’t agree with you more. Seems like people think since it is not Tabacco smoke that they should be able to vape anywhere. I’ve always played by the same rules as I did when smoking. I won’t vape in your house, car or face unless you do.


#5

…and yet every time I join your stream I’m greeted with a face (screen) absolutely full of your lies! :wink:


#6

i would never vape in front of anyone who doesn’t simply because i dont want to give vaping a bad name. Also people can get a nicotine buzz from the vapor so its a no no. The health hazards are-10000000 less than smoking so no point even talking about that lol.


#7

I mean, let’s at least use real facts if we’re actually wanting to make an argument for the sake of vaping; using fanciful, over-the-top numbers does nothing for the cause or product(s) except hurt credibility through enhancing skepticism.


TL;DR: safer, but not completely safe. Source.

Also, for note, second-hand vape exposure is essentially a non-issue aside from the smell. Source.


#8

Nothing is safe or safer. Just less hazardous. No extensive studies out there yet so i dont quote tests. But i feel better.


#9

I literally just linked 2 research papers on the matter (and there are many more); other than a massive longitudinal study (which will culminate in a research paper), I don’t know what more you’re wanting…


#10

long term studies 10 years + is pretty much the only thing that can convince some people to switch from personal experience


#11

I agree with @ohnokenzilla and his point here. The sent is pretty annoying if the huge cloud it creates is blown anywhere in your area especially indoors. People think because it isn’t smoke it is ok but really it is disrespectful to those around you. Just go outside. On another point I quit smoking 18 months ago and it started with vaping. I used vaping just to try it because I like using a hookah and enjoyed different flavors. I loved the flavors I found vaping. I used a basic pen for about $60. The liquid I found to be superior was from a company called Suicide Bunny. They made a liquid called Mother’s Milk that was a strawberry cream flavor. It was amazing. after about a week I couldn’t stand the taste of regular cigs. A month or so later I started bringing out my pen just in case I felt the need to go outside and smoke. I stopped having that urge. I used 5mg nicotine liquid but for those more addicted than I was you may need more. It is worth a try if you are serious about quitting for sure. I do feel that vaping is still smoking and I am sure there are some effects from the liquid as well. It just has not been around long enough to know for sure.

There are five smokers in my office, and three got vape pens last year.

  • First - Hasn’t smoked since last year. Hasn’t vaped in 4 months.
  • Second - Vaped for a month and quit - smokes very little anyway
  • Third - Hasn’t smoked since Day 1 of her vape and vapes every day.

They all went in on it together, and got the same product. Knowing them as well, their experience was driven mostly by where they are in life and why they are quitting (First has a family, Second thought it was cool, Third health concerns).

I have been flirting with the idea of getting one of these for a while, but the upfront cost makes me think I’d rather just quit altogether than switch to vaping. Easier said than done.

Question - what would I have to buy if there is more than one… flavor… I would vape? Do I switch between cartridges?


#14

With vaping, you buy the ejuice separately usually. So, if you’re dripping you just drip some on the cotton around the coil and vape away. If you’re using a tank, you fill it up and then vape away.

They also come in different varieties of nicotine levels.

@RadSavage the setup that @Majordomo listed here is a sub-ohm setup. This mean the resistance in of the coil (the element that is heating up the e-juice and ultimately atomizing it) is less then 1 ohm. Why is this important? It is considered an advanced vaping device and there are some safety concerns. Most obvious are the following:

  • You can over potentially draw more amperage from the battery then was intended by the manufacturer setting you up for an explosion or at the least, it can catch fire.

  • Sub-Ohm Mods also produce a good bit more vapor then a traditional setup. While this looks cool, if you don’t know what you are doing you can get an unsafe dosage of nicotine.

  • Mismatching components from sub-ohm and traditional vape set-ups can instantly take you back to my first bullet.

If you are just starting out I would suggest that you stop into the local vape shop and get a tour / test drive. When I first started vaping in 2009 i was using a 28 mg strength e-juice. This means that 1 ml or 1/5th of a teaspoon had roughly 28 mg of nicotine. 60 mg is considered a lethal dose.

All I’m saying is, do your research… I tend not to give advise on this subject because there are so many variables.

I love vaping so much. I recently bought myself an eleaf istick 50w and an Atlantis Aspire 2 .

My coworker is getting into it now as well and I’m giving her my old nautilus mini and istick 30w. My brother and his friends recently started an ejuice company, so I get a bunch of free or discounted juice off him which is awesome as well.

This company by far makes the best tasting liquid if you are into flavors


#19

Agreed, been vaping since 2007.

I prefer my rebuildable dripper

Safety is a big concern but if you do your research then you will be fine. The basic safety principles revolve around ohms law. Basically depending on the coil you build aka gauge of the wire, resistance (nickel or kanthal wire and how many wraps you make), inner diameter of coils, battery output (amps), distance from posts and wattage setting (also wicking type, coil type etc). But it’s very advanced and not something a beginner should worry about. I would never recommend rdas to a beginner. But when it comes to the setup I posted then you need not worry about all that because the coils are pre made and if you use temperature control and nickel coils its even safer. Ofc nothing is 100% safe. Taking care of your equipment is a priority and learning all you can about it is very very important. I ll add more about safety to my op tomorrow.
