Hi, I started vaping end of November 2012 and went the cigalike route, really should have done more homework but it did give me an introduction even though it cost me half a weeks fag money Sad
From there to Ego batteries (you know they are called piles over here in France) and clearomisers that made all the difference and enabled me to enjoy the experience better with various flavours. I smoked (notice the past tense) 25+/day Gitanes plain for nearly 35 years and my other half thought I would never quit, did the whole exercise without telling her (I never smoked indoors) she got suspicious but took her till Christmas day to ask the question.
Now have a Vamo V2/V3, Itaste MVP V2, various ego batteries for handing out to people interested, Igo L drippers (love them), Vision Eternity, various Clearomisers, Kanger MT3. So I don’t really have Shinyitis (yet).
Within a week my cough had gone, sense of smell has come back, taste buds took a bit longer. Would I go back to fags? I probably would have too if they decided to ban/medicinalse Ecigs as the only ones that would be available would be the cigalikes that like patches and gum just would not work!
