Hello!
Hello!  I am brand new to the world of vaping, I just bought my first e-cig about 36 hours ago and so far I am loving it!  I was (I'm already saying WAS!) a smoker for years and wanted to quit but never did.  Most of the time I set dates when I would try but never followed through with it.  I went to a Vape Shop and asked for the easiest most basic e-cig and the guy working there was so great and got me all set up with a KangerTech Evod2 and I picked out a Cola Gummies flavour (don't laugh!), he explained everything and away I went.  So I got the 18mg juice to start and so far so good, no desire to smoke the old nasty cigs when I have this delicious juice.  So I am hoping when it is time to get a new bottle of juice, I will be able to go down in the nicotine strength and eventually get down to 0mg.   And then I thought there must be a forum where people talk about this, found this one and read thru some of the posts and was so impressed with how friendly and helpful people are here, so I joined up! 
So, Hello to Everyone!!!

RE: Hello!
Hi ihv - welcome to the forum - any questions you have just ask away - the expertise and help is always to hand. Don't be too eager to cut down too quickly on the nic. that is not what does the harm in cigs. it's the tars and all the other 'guff ' in them. Nic. is a stimulent just like caffeine so don't bother about it too much. All the best - you have made a good start.

RE: Hello!
Hi and welcome.

Like ecignut said, there's no great rush to drop nicotine levels. Just when you feel ready to do so.

RE: Hello!
Welcome to the forum! We pride ourselves on being the friendliest forum on the web, and I'm glad you've found us helpful Smile 

Like ecignut and Don said, nicotine isn't harmful when it's not in tobacco smoke. All the chemicals that burn along with it are what causes problems. You'll probably find yourself cutting down on nicotine anyway even if you weren't trying, simply because vaping tastes so good and you'll end up vaping more often than you would have smoked. And if you turn it into a hobby like most of us here, you'll probably end up getting more powerful mods and tanks, which require lower nicotine concentration since they make bigger clouds. The most important thing is that you're not smoking cigarettes anymore, and even if you do "cheat" once in a while, you're still smoking much less than you would have. The reason I say this, for some folks the desire to smoke completely goes away immediately, but for a lot of us, it still gets tempting every now and then when you have a stressful day, or things like that. So I just want you to know that it's awesome you've quit, and if you do slip up sometime, don't feel bad about it, we're still here and you're still helping your health with every cigarette you don't smoke, so just pick back up and vape on! 

(I don't mean to be a downer, but I've seen people slip and start smoking again after vaping and it's human nature to feel bad about that, so I wanted to warn you that it might not be 100% gone immediately)

RE: Hello!
Welcome! I love good cola flavors (emphasis on 'good', because I've hit some stinkers before. Cola Gummy sounds good. Menthol cola is also pretty good.

It's always nice to meet a new vaper who's just getting off the cigs! I hope you do well and find it to be an easy transition.

Thanks for the info and encouragement ecignut!  I will keep it in mind not to cut down on the nic too quickly, I am so happy not to be smoking all the other chemicals in the analog cigs, so I don't want to mess that up!  I appreciate the advice!

Hi gentlydoingit*    Thank you for the warm welcome!  I can see how vaping can turn into a hobby or passion as I look around at the threads here!  (ha ha, took me a minute to figure out what you meant by not letting predictive text near ihv ..... I was thinking Predictive Text was a member here Smile )
