I created this sub-forum because is doesn't seem like there is any place on any of the other forums for the dual user. Though I am not a dual user myself, I know there are plenty of vapers out there who are. Don't be ashamed! There is nothing wrong with being a smoker and vaper. Hopefully, you will be able to connect on here with other dual users. big-grin

When I first started vaping I was, but not any more.  I don't see a problem with being a dual user.

I don't see a problem with dual users either happy

My hope is the vapers accept their dual use instead of ridiculing them.

I got no problem with dual users.  I never wanted to quit smoking, not once. I love smoking.  I just love vaping more.  In June it will be four years since I've had tobacco.  I was rolling my own cigs at that point.  While playing with ecigs I noticed I had not rolled a cig in three days.  I rolled one immediately.  Just tasted so bad compared to ecigs, I put it out and never lite up again.  My roommate is a dual user.  Complains about it, the smell, the cost, etc.  I just tell her, use what you want, when you want.  But for God sakes, stop bitchen about it.

I'm dual using now, but hoping to be only vaping in the next few days. I've used analogs for over 30 years, had enough. Love the vaping experience, so think it will work out.

Was never ashamed to tell my customers that I did both. Honesty is not just a business practice but a way of life.

Of course nothing "to be ashamed of", but please let me add this, because there ARE dual users that don't want to be.

I was a dual user for 2 years, but i DID drive me nuts.

Major "pat on the back" because I went from 20 a day to 5 a day, but it still drove me nuts and wanted to stop. It bugged me every time I lit an analog.

One day I decided it was no more analogs.

I went to Wally World and bought the patches and thought "ok, got the ecig, got the patch, all will be good".

First day, no problem. MAN! I should've done that 2 years earlier!

Second day, same thing, no problems and no desire to smoke an analog.

BUT...the end of the second day...went home after work, went to go and remove the patch, and realized I wasn't even wearing the patch!!!! too-funny

So for ME anyway, it was a mental thing. I THOUGHT I was wearing the patch and there for I THOUGHT I was fine...which I was!

Anyhow, I trashed the patched, no need for those, and haven't TOUCHED an analog since.big-grin

For those that don't want to be a dual user, toss the the smokes, go 3 days (MAX), and you are DONE!

I am a dual user too, more often smoke cigars than cigarettes, but still vape more often than I smoke.

I'm not a dual user, but I do know some who are. Vaping has generally helped them cut back on smoking.

Hi, I am currently a dual user with the ultimate aim to quit tobacco. I've always loved smoking (more the actions and the relaxation from it), so when I first learnt about vaping all my dreams came true!

Being new to vaping, I can find experiment to find what company, mods etc suit me best. Being from Australia we are pretty limited to options here so I've found my best options are abroad. With this I have to work out many things such as what my daily use will be so I prepared, fueled so I never run dry.

I'm using to different mods atm, one for everyday use like work etc. Something practicable as I am continuously on the move with my job. Then a second device for home, social etc where it does't matter about the size of the mod. Not sure if that sounds odd to anyone but that's mebig-grin

I'm temporarily back to being a dual user -- and actually, just got here to this site and this forum too, so hello.

I actually laid down the cigarettes back on Feb 27, and was happily smoke-free, 100% vaping, for over 3 months.  Then I got appendicitis, got the appendix out, and came home to recuperate, which entailed several days of nausea/vomiting so severe, there was no food/no vape/not even water-drinking going on.  When I was finally able to get out of bed, I was so extremely dehydrated from my illness that I knew vaping would be a bad idea, but cravings were smacking me around like a red-headed stepchild -- after 115 days smoke-free, I succumbed, and have been back to smoking for a week now.  I do vape a little, if I'm out riding around or driving in the truck, because I don't want that horrible smell to come back; I'm very much looking forward to returning to smoke-free status.

This little hiatus from vaping also forced me to deal with the extreme dehydration issues I was having, primarily, swelling in my feet/ankles/lower legs so severe that it was extremely painful -- from the PG, which was the primary component of my vape because VG just flat out suffocates me, I can't breathe at all if it's even as little as 33% of the mix -- 20% VG is about all I can deal with, if I want to keep breathing.  This is probably because I have bronchial asthma, and VG is just too heavy.  No idea why the horrible reaction to PG, which really surprised me, I'm so used to it from my asthma inhaler.

Today I ordered some PEG400, some Pineapple flavor, and some Koolada, so I can create my own "Pineapple Ice" e-liquid, which flavor at the moment seems to distract me the best from cigarettes -- it's so cool and lightly sweet, which cigarettes are decidedly NOT.  Also got some excellent advice at ECF for using the Ejuicemeup calculator when using PEG400 as the primary "base," so by the end of the week I should be able to get that mixed up.  Really hoping I can abandon the cigarettes once again; I got very used to being a non-smoker, and would really like to go back to being one.

But no, I don't think there's anything shameful about it; I wasn't ashamed of being a smoker, when I was one full-time, for 39 yrs, but vaping *really is* better; no stink, no cancer, and so many flavor choices!  I'd consider it merely unfortunate that my smoke-free time was interrupted by my very unfortunate illness, but like Forrest said... "it happens." big-grin

Welcome Andria. Every cigarette not smoked is a major accomplishment IMO. I've been considering trying a cigarette because I'm curious if it will be nasty after 15 months of being analog free. Its an experiment I want to try, at the same time I fear I might actually like it.

Many folks have issues with either PG VG or both, some are allergic and what not. My Pina Koolada is one of my favorite recipes.

Good luck to you.
