Why It's Called An 'E-Cigarette' And 'E-Smoking'
What's Wrong with E-Cigarettes?       #VAPINGSAVESAUSSIELIVES

I've been vaping and not smoking for
2 years, 299 days, and 10 hours

Not a cent spent in the last 153 days. So far vaping has cost me around 1/5
of the $3,151 that I haven't spent on the 10,706 cigarettes that I haven't smoked.
7¾ ounces of tar could be in my lungs but aren't..

On the 29th of September, 2014, I quit nailin' my coffin after doing so for more than 30 years. BUTT I did smoke a bit more or less than half a cigarette with a friend of mine 990 days ago.

I won't be using my Zippo as much anymore, but it's not going anywhere..

Vaping is not the same as smoking. I started with hardware like this. Vaping is not the same as smoking. I have a Provari 2.5, an iTaste 134 Mini, the iClear X.I clearo it came with, and a Vapros V-Spot clearomizer. I also have an eLeaf iStick, the Ehpro eTank S2 clearo it came with, and a Sir Lancelot mechanical mod. Vaping is not the same as smoking, and I have a Wotofo Serpent Mini RTA and an IJoy Reaper Plus RTA. I have a 1600mAh (which may be 1300mAh..) VV 510/eGo threaded Kamry X7 battery, some kind of 1100mAh (which may be 1000mAh..) VV 510/eGo threaded battery, and a few 18nn0 batteries. I should mention, vaping is not the same as smoking. It's not rocket science, but, It's Science. Remember that.

At first, I was keen on a mix of Turkish Bold and Mojito flavored pre-mixed juices, at about an 80/20 ratio (well, 8mg and 2mg..) with 21 and 10 mg/ml nicotine levels. I was incorrectly assuming the end nic level to be at least in the 30's. I was introduced to this calculator (Thanks Rat2chat2, Markill and Rickajho), and with that I determined the nicotine level to be just under 19mg. I have found the eJuice Me Up calculator to be quite useful as well. The calculators at Steam Engine have to be mentioned too because they have to be.

Today I may've vaped about 1.5 mls of a 75/25 PG/VG ratio 24mg nic per ml Unflavored e-liquid, sometimes I add a little concentrated flavor.

I've been in mech land for 264 days.

As if things weren't already interesting enough, they're going to get interestinger now that the FDA Deeming Regulations Ripple effect has started.

I like tobacco. I used to enjoy smoking a cigarette. Now I enjoy vaping instead. Nicotine is a somewhat stimulating, calming and relaxing drug (like caffeine..) that I have no reason or desire to stop using.

There are a few similarities to and many differences between using a PV (portable vaporizer, commonly called an e-cig) and smoking a cigarette. It's difficult to compare the two because they are just not the same. It's more than an apples and oranges kind of thing..

Similarities

Nicotine.

Differences

No more tar..
No more ashes..
No more smoke..
No more coughing or hacking..
No more "I just GOTTA empty this ashtray" occasions..


Not only are there similarities to and differences between smoking and vaping, there are several different types of both.

Types of Smoking
Types of Vaping

I control the flavor level, the nicotine level, the temp. and body of the vapor, and the 'Toke Time'..
Even though I can't use of these while I use both hands for something, I don't get any smoke in my eye..
I don't have to roll down my vehicles' window near as much anymore.
  This is nice when it's cold or raining.
I don't have to keep my vehicles' interior light on at night so I can find the ashtray. In fact, I don't have to look for an ashtray anywhere anymore..
