    Don't feel bad. I have about 200 flavors and only have ONE of the flavors in that recipe, the "Yes, We Cheesecake."

    ETA: Saw VaporJoe's post about today being the last day to take 10% off at FT, so ordered one SS and one black C2MNT clones and a pack of 10 squonk pins.

    Finally heard back from Vaporrange today about the ONE item they did have in stock. They're sending it out again, since it's not moving since Nov. 19. Told me to keep it, if the original shows up. Still on my blacklist for what they did for BF sales. :cuss2:

    Went to my primary care physician for appointment, didn't appreciate his diagnosis about my vaping, and told him as much.

    As you all know, I've been a little under the weather so I finally went to the doctor, who after examining me, said it looked like a chest infection. Well after telling him it started with my daughter coming home from school sick, then my wife, then me, etc... He asked ic I smoked and I told him I haven't smoked since the day I started vaping almost 4 years ago.

    Well the he asked if anyone else in my house vaped,and I told him that my wife made the switch almost 2 years ago.

    Well the he proceeded to ask if anyone else in the house was experiencing any signs of a chest infection and I said that my son was starting to.

    What was said next TOTALLY BLEW MY MIND!

    My doctor made the statement, "I believe you and your wife are suffering from a vaping related illness, and I think your children are starting to feel the effects as well from breathing in second hand smoke from your ecigarettes. My recommendation would be to quit using e-cigarettes. They are linked to thousands of illnesses and many deaths hers in the US alone."

    I was dumbfounded! I tried to explain about the illicit tic carts and the CDC statement, and he said it was just a theory that viatamin E acitate was the culprit. I tried telling him about blackmarket products, the politics...but he wasn't having no part of any of it. His mind was set in stone.

    I told him he needed to do a little research, find some good case studies, and look at ALL the facts before he makes a diagnosis and a recommendation to a patient. I also informed him I will be finding a new primary care physician.

    The AMA is as crooked as any other industry shill - including those funded by tax payers - whether it's the FDA, CDC or grant funded with tax money, AHA, etc

    Man, That's some shit! I would look for another doctor also.
    I just renewed my DOT physical yesterday. One of the questions on the forms asked if i ever used or use tobacco. I checked no (although i smoked for 40 years)
    When the doc listened to my breathing with her stethoscope, she said my lungs sounded perfect.
    After that i told her i used to smoke but quit and i've been vaping for 3 years now.
    She said she couldn't condone it, but she said she has seen the same result with many other people that vaped.

    My former primary care doc told me my lungs sounded like the lungs of a non-smoker. That's even with my husband smoking in our house. I had been vaping for at least five years at that time.

    The way you answer their "are you a smoker?" question often colors what they say next, regardless of their observations.

    I find that it also applies to visual observations - I have meniscus damage in both my knees, but the ortho's advice for my knee trouble is "lose some weight." Well I've got news for you, buddy, I don't have knee damage because I'm fat. I'm fat because I have knee damage and for years, since I weighed a lot less than I do now, doctors have been telling me to lose weight. They won't look any farther.

    I went in for my annual checkup and I told my doctor to really check my lungs good since it's been just over there years since I quit smoking.

    He said my lungs sounded perfect!
    I told him I started vaping when I quit smoking. His comment was, "Well if that's what it takes to keep you off the cigarettes, more power to you!"

    I am pretty sure that NO doctor in the US has had any official training about vaping.
    They are just spouting fake news like everyone else.

    I bought a new Naut Mini today. Plus a Tesla Punk 86. I like the Mini on the Punk for salts, so for under $55 for both, it was a great deal.

    Really didn't do much vape related today... Filled up my tank twice and made my rounds here and there on the site having a few laughs and giving thanks for the comedy and the thoughtfulness of others. Connected with a few of my friends here today and listened to some great music....While I was battling a headache most of the day, many of my new friends made coming here so worth wild... So much more fun than playing "yahtzee with friends" for 5 hours a day... lol

    Vaped a lot while taking a 10 hour drive 280 miles away to Kerrville, TX. and back for a family funeral. That's 5 hours each way and that's not even half way across Texas. El Paso is still almost 500 miles from Kerrville.

    Also sent an email to Florida Vape Supply as the latest two Zion RDAs I'd ordered arrived in just zip top baggies and not in the camo pouch that the others came in. They also didn't have they also didn't have the extra o-rings, post screws, or the squonk pin. They are absolutely useless to me without the squonk pin.

    Been saving on all my vape supplies lately. The Topomax the doc has me on for my migraines is reducing my cravings for nicotine. Interestingly, it is reducing my tolerance for bullshit as well. This is going to be an interesting holiday season.

    Sorry about the zion's I hope FVS makes it right for you. And sorry about your loss also.

    I edited my comment as I missed the part about why you had to go to Kerville at first. Ya, after I read it again my attempt at humor wasn't funny considering.........sorry hon., this little tablet I am on right now is tough on these old eyes.

    Thanks. It was my wife's great aunt, but she had been more like a grandmother to my wife.

    Just spoke to Matt at Florida Vape Supply. I like how he calls people. The 2 Zion RDAs I bought were the last two he had and doesn't have the spares bags, but he said he was going to dig some up. He asked me to call him next Wednesday. I mean if he doesn't then it's really no big deal. I only paid $5 for the RDAs so it's not like I'm out a lot of money and these can act as spare everything for the two in use and thanks to @Huckleberried for reminding me of the Ar eliquid sale I bought another Axial and a black PIE top cap to use on the white Armageddon. Dang you Huck now your costing me money and brownie points with my wife.

    I'll also try some of the squonk pins from other RDAs to see if the'll fit.

    I was going to suggest trying other pins. Also if a generic pin will work, FT has packs of 10 Wasp Nano pins for a little over $4. I got a pack with my last order, for this very reason. I'm sure they won't fit everything, but sometimes some switching around can work it out! :) This won't fit in this, but it fits in that, and the pin from that fits in this! Know what I mean? lol

    Yep. IF nothing I have will work then I'll try ordering a few options from FT. Of course having another RDA isn't a bad thing either. :)

    When I first switched and joyfully informed my doc, he was 1) flabbergasted (that I finally quit after he'd been seeing me for 20ish yrs), 2) really intrigued, but also 3) admittedly ignorant about vaping... so the next time I went, I took a bunch of great stuff I printed from the web, from the various great THR blogs. He's now a firm believer in the value of vaping for old smokers who won't quit or can't quit any other way. As he puts it, "Anything is better than smoking. ANYTHING!" He's 67 yrs old, and most of his patients are geriatrics, and he sees CONSTANTLY the health effects of long-term smoking. Docs like that are the easiest to convince of the value of vaping. The young whippersnappers think they know everything about everything, and don't know JACK SHIT.
