    Anyone do it?

    I don't smoke but I have a 618 e-pipe I vape lychee flavor, 0 mg nicotine.
    It's like aromatherapy, for lack of a better term.

    There are bad reviews but those are linked to the "clearomizer" that houses the vaporizer and e-liquid.
    I promptly threw those out and use a kangertech protank 2.

    I sometimes feel like smokers think I'm mocking them.
    i just find it relaxing to smell lychee and watch the smoke curl and flow.

    First time I've ever heard the verb, "vape"

    I'd love to be able to quit smoking this way… trying the E-cigs but still holding onto real smokes. Looking for a reasonable priced unit and vendor for ordering.

    i started with the blu ecigs but those were crap. i got my v3 at gpvapors in salem nh. he sells some good starter kits at around 60 bucks. he also has a table to sample all of the different flavors. i was a menthol cig smoker, i usually will get a bottle of fruit flavored "juice" and mix a bit of menthol flavor in there.

    I dropped the light up ones about 3 months ago.

    I've been using the V2 brand of e-cigs, I tried most of the others I could find locally and liked the V2 the best.

    If you order directly from them, you can get cartridges in any nicotine level or zero if you desire.

    I used a Krave kit to quit butts, twice. Once four years ago and again this New Years. Was a pack a day smoker but only took me 10 days each time to ween myself off nicotine. I owe the guy who created E-cigs a LOT. Couldn't have quit without one.

    Running an itazte 134 with a kanger protank 2 filled with Juicy Vapor cranberry and limes 6mg ATM.

    Quit two and a half years ago. I play pool in smoky private clubs every week. I couldn't go into these places and not smoke if it wasn't for e-cigs.

    I make some of my own juice mixing 20% flavor (almond, vanilla) and 80% VG (veggie glycol).
    I'm still perfecting it.

    When I find a good source for lychee flavoring I'll start with that too.

    The lychee I'm using is "Scarlet" from "The Collection". I get this from eastern vapors in Brighton. (Awesome guys, very cool).
    I'm not a big fan of the use of PG (propylene glycol) because it makes my mouth feel fuzzy and dry. If I can get a mostly VG mix of lychee I'd be pretty happy.

    Anyone know where I can get decent lychee flavoring?

    You can get a starter kit that doesn't include any e-juice for around $35 on ebay. This inludes 2 vaping setups and 1 charger.
    I would stick to "non-knockoff" Kanger brand EVOD.

    By the same token you could go to Eastern Vapors in Brighton but you only get 1 vaping setup for $40, but Mark, the guy that's usually there, is super awesome and knowledgeable and will also give you some e-juice to go with your first purchase.

    I use vapors haven In Easthampton, Ma. Prices are a tad high, but being a locally owned shop its ok with me. They even have a nice " protected by S&W" sticker on the door.

    I was chewing four tins a day and I am down to 3mg juice. I use the ego mega with a dual coil carto.

    In Webster there's Safer Vapors - avoid the DeKang juices, they're too thick and are a bitch to get off your coils.

    Right now, I rock mostly menthol flavorings in an EVO-D Variable Voltage mod with an IClear 16 tank. 16mg nicotine - haven't found low nic juices that I like.

    I find that some smokers get really pissy about vaping -- even moreso some of the non smokers - "hey!!! you can't smoke near a gas pump!!" Yeah, I know. Its not smoke, assclown.

    I saw flavorings like Chicken and Waffles, Mango, pot - yes, pot flavored ejuice with no THC! and my personal favorite that I never tried, Steak and Eggs.

    I was given one of the Evod but I have no idea where to get the cartridges etc, looked online and got overwhelmed. I think going to this place in Salem, NH with the kit I have may be my best bet to get started.
    Thank you for the kind offer I may very well take you up on the offer once I get a bit more knowledge going.

    You pour goo into the EVOD and that's how you refill it.
    If you youtube EVOD you'll see lots of examples of how it all works.

    Try halo.com order the triton unit. Backwoodsbrew.net tobaccos are good try adirondack and virginia. If you want some naturally extracted tobacco flavor try goodejuice.com. patriot,analog and organic are the real deal. 18mg to start so you don't slip back.

    Freaking love this place, went there Friday and returned Saturday to get a few more items.
    Have not had a real cig since Friday at 4:30pm and I am loving the vapor.

    good for you! it was easy for me. i just said "that's it, vapor only for me from now on" and never looked back. a side note: i smoked 2 butts one night over the summer when i drank way too many drinks at the campfire. i was double extra sick the next day. i suspect the marlboros had something to do with it.

    i vape with threw HALO Triton Tank System...i love it!

    i buy my e-liquid from Johnson Creek Smoke Juices...usually the Tennessee Cured flavor....then i mix my own using 80% Tennessee Cured, 10% plain Vegetable Glycerine, and 10% plain Propylene Glycol....

    this gives you that nice genuine tobacco flavor, and the VG thickens up the liquid just a touch and provides a better "throat hit" and the PG helps give it a little but better vapor production and a slightly sweet flavor
