    Thanks bud, me too.

    Think I'll check out the classifieds and see what's what. Was invited here by a friend of mine, not sure what her username is here though.

    I had a Vaporesso Swag. It was my first vape, had it for about 5 months. I've been looking to upgrade anyway, just doing my research and such.

    Anyway, a friend helped me with some prices so I ended up getting a new Drag 2, Zeus Ex and batteries for R1710. Seems like a good deal and I am VERY happy with the flavour and production. Need to get a charger though, don't want to keep charging through the mod.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm proud to say that I have been mostly the stinkies now for about 4 month. I say mostly, as I have had about a box of 20 throughout this period, but only in the event that I'm at work and in a situation where vaping is not "kosher". I have however found it much easier since I acquired my SMOk Nord.

    In my few months of reform, I have introduced quite a few of my friends and colleagues to vaping over smoking and have converted 6 of them so far, which I must say, they are doing quite well in terms of not smoking.

    At the moment, I have twisted my dad's arm and lent him my Nord to try get him to smoking.( He had been smoking since the age of 18 btw), but he is finding it extremely difficult, he is struggling with a sore throat and uncontrollable coughing when he vapes, even after trying nic salts, MTL and regular 70/30 liquid. ATM, I have him on a 2mg with a 0.6 coil and it seems to be helping, as he has cut down from 2 boxes of smokes about 6 cegaretts a day.needless to say, I am missing my Nord, but it is so worth it if I can get him to convert too.

    So, more about me...

    I currently am using a Ijoy Shogun and a Zeus X, vaping 3mg desert and fruit (my favourite) flavours.

    I'm quite excited to be part of this forum and look forward to meeting some fellow Vapers and hoping I can help to make a difference in the vaping community.

    Warm welcome to the forum @David.Fisher and thanks for the great intro

    Congrats on the 4 months of nearly stinkie free. You doing a great thing and I am sure your lungs are thanking you each day!

    I hear you on the challenges of getting your dad onto vaping. Great thing you doing. Don't give up. My mom was the same with the coughing. We just tried plenty different juices till she found something that she liked and didnt make her cough. A bit lower nic and MTL (mouth to lung) helped. I think some people who have smoked for a long time struggle to get used to the vaping sensation and it can irritate the throat. But I think after a while that fades away. Unless he is allergic to PG but that is not very common.

    All the best and enjoy your stay. Feel free to ask questions as you go along.

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    Yes, we are trying but I'm struggling to find a 6ml MTL that is a softer flavour, the TKO I got is a bit strong, but I'll try find some at the end of the month, as I spent allot this month already .

    I'm also going to be looking into getting him a small, second hand re-buildabe setup as soon as I have the cash. Not sure if you can suggest any.

    As for now, he is using a 2ml DL, hope he comes right. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Hi @David.Fisher
    You need to let him try a MTL setup. Some of the pod devices may be suitable. Or on the rebuildable side something like a Siren V2 with a tight MTL draw.

    Might be that a direct lung device is not suiting him because he is so used to the smoking. Also a good idea to go visit a good vape shop and let him try out some of the MTL devices.

    Hope it works out and let us know.
