Wife was looking through our financial files this evening, found a slip dating 2008 for a carton of Kent. R186,50. Just 12 years ago, fark am feeling old now.
In 2008 I use to pay about R140 per soft pack, and sometimes R180 for Stuyversant red in a tin seen on the right below:

I always use to pop the soft pack into the tin cause of wet weather.

Granted I was in New Zealand and soon after I stopped for about 3 years (2011-2014). Before that I was in EU's and their prices where just as nuts.

2014 I landed in RSA and saw packets going for R25 and thought it was Xmas. Picked the habit right back up again.

So technically for me R60 per pack is still cheap ;)

Well, the doekop has forced me to become that which I once ridiculed.

I'm a vaper now, guys.

:sneaky:

The strange device is unboxed, plugged in and receiving its first charge.

I just can't keep up with this R100/box BS anymore.

I'm a 10% vaper. GF bought me the Vaporesso OSmall with the strong Nicsalt juice. Suck on it in my office inbetween smoke breaks (which are now less).

That's kind of what I'm going for but was hoping for a higher percentage. I got something called a Suorin Air and the juice I got is 20 mg/ml nicsalt (I don't even know WTF that means).

You're going to have to grow a man-bun now.
****. I forgot about that part.

Welcome to the club :D
I Started on a Silver dildo (Ijust S) that i got for free with some juice.
Recently bought a Smok 80 Pro with 18650 External batteries and loving it.

Kinda getting use to this... better than chewing horrible gum. Now if I could just source 18mg/ml or more I would be in heaven. All the places I look I can only get 3mg/ml and if I'm lucky 6. Found a 10ml of 18mg/ml once, did not need a smoke fo the 2 days that lasted :(

That's kind of what I'm going for but was hoping for a higher percentage. I got something called a Suorin Air and the juice I got is 20 mg/ml nicsalt (I don't even know WTF that means).
Lucky bastard

Diaries of a vaper, day 3:

Smoking just as many cigarettes as before, except now with a head like a balloon. All caused by that little cough box filled with yuck juice.
