Another one bites the dust!
Another one down, millions to go....  Got another good friend to make the switch, she's at 2 days and counting without a single cigarette.  Had tried vaping before and not succeeded, but after the standard AJ questionnaire I determined her vaping needs and got her going with something that within minutes, she said would work for her.  She loves hookah and was able to lung-hit my Aromamizer without issue at 84 watts - pen vapes were NOT the way to get her started.

She's on a tight budget, so to help her get started I gave her my beloved but now retired SubTank Mini, all my remaining 70/30 juice, and a couple of Sony VTC's.  Helped her pick out a mod, she settled on the Sigelei Spark.  Had the shop mix up some stronger nic juice in the same flavor than what was in the 30 ml or so I gave her (3mg is what i use), and blended them to get her around a 6, also bought her a small bottle of a different flavor from PSV to try (instantly loved it).

There are few things in life I love as much as helping someone get out from under the stinkies.  :-)

That's fantastic AJ! If everyone had friends like you, this world would be a better place!

Very nice gesture there, and hopefully she sticks with it... it sounds promising, especially with some guidance that you're able to give her.

Kudos buddy! Drinks

RE: Another one bites the dust!
It was a good friend that finally made vaping work for me (my early attempt with iJoy cigalikes cost a lot of money and failed), and I've done everything I can to pay it forward ever since.  Not counting my wife (we were a joint venture, lol), I currently take credit for 8 close friends being off cigarettes forever, and less directly several dozen more, and I do everything I can to help complete strangers toward the path if the conversation starts.

If we all get 5 people to quit, and they all get 5 people to quit, and they all get 5 people to quit...

RE: Another one bites the dust!
Last person I helped was my friend Peter. He was smoking native cigarettes ( a pack a day ). I gave him my Ibliss tube with a delta 2 on top and a pack of coils. Never used the Ibliss much anymore. It is a 40 watt tube that you cannot adjust - it vapes to the coil. Now that might seem a but strong for a newbie but he loved it immediately. Of course there were a few nights of 'what did I do wrong'? 'my coil tastes horrible''is this safe?' etc. But he got the hang of it and has since moved on to standard regulated devices. 

At the moment I have at least six mods I would part with if someone was dedicated to quitting. I gave a mod to my superintendent but he went back to cigarettes. His wife however vapes. She uses one of my old Isticks with a nautilus. So I have a had a few successes. And some failures unfortunately. Will not stop me from trying though.
