    Hi all

    I was hoping to never ask for help again because I thought I would be in the position to help others out like I have been but unfortunately due to some medical aid benefits not being unlimited I am stuck paying a pretty penny from now on for some expenses.

    So the question is, is there anyone that has a simple small mod with a tank to PIF to a friend in need, something that uses commercial coils and maybe have a rba deck just in case she decides to build. Maybe some 6mg or higher menthol juice as i doubt my 3mg will be enough for her.

    My friend friend has been to hell and back with a cheating husband that used her for her money that went as far as her loosing her business and selling everything to move to PTA and now came back because it just didn't work out.
    She wants to stop smoking to cut costs so I doubt she will need much.
    I have some wick and wire and building stuff I can give her if she wants to start building.

    I know I am asking for a lot but anything will help and I know she will appreciate it as much as I would.

    Thanks guys

    Not sure if it will help any, but I have 2 eLeaf D16 10W variabke voltage batteries. They drive a nautilus mini quite well. Don't have any tanks or coils, but if someone can throw in a small atomizer and ome higher nic juice it could work. The mods can't sub-ohm, but the do well with smaller atomizers. I can send them off to you next week if you think it will help. PM me your details if you're interested. I can try and whip up some menthol juice, or just send you my bottle of menthol I still have from Skyblue if you want to mix something up for her or add menthol to a juice.

    Hi guys.

    Thank you very much for all the offers. We eventually found her a Aio and she is very happy with it.

    I gave her some of my 3mg juices and she is actually doing quite well on it. We will see how it goes on the low nic.

    also I will be willing to give her some of my DIY juice. Just tell me what she likes and I'll make it. No labels, branding etc. Just juice. I'll even ship it.

    Ah thanks man that would be awesome. She told me today it's going well with the Aio but she still has a couple stinkies because she craves that menthol and peppermint she gets from the smokes and I don't vape anything menthol.

    I used to be a menthol smoker but struggled to get any juice that tasted even remotely the same.
    Then @VapeSnow gave me this
    If you looking for a nice creamy mint

    Creme de Menthe( TFA) 7%
    Koolada (TFA) 1%
    Menthol 0.5%...


    and I really love it.

    I would be willing to add 30ml to the basket.
    @NewOobY maybe we can arrange to ship it together?

    Cool I'll whip up a batch of something menthol - I'm assuming she still wants a tobacco type menthol flavour?

    Cool thanks bro :)

    I don't think a tobacco. Maybe just straight up menthol. She can always mix the menthol with some other juices if she wants

    Hi @wiesbang, I managed to pickup the juice from @SAVaper on Sunday. Can you please PM your friends address so that I can have the juice shipped to her.

    Regards,

    Indeed!

    I myself have been helped out alot and I will be great full till the day I die! I have tried to give back as much as I can but not close to as much as I want!

    I got the juices from @cam Friday and went to pick my friend up at work and left it on the seat. She was so excited when she saw what it was. She couldn't stop saying thank you.
    I spoke to her this AM and she has not touched a stinkie since Saturday. Coming from a pack a day I am super impressed with her.

    I cannot thank you guys enough. Seeing her this excited is very refreshing!
