    Yeah they're quite big here. Not just used by smokers, either. A lot of people get liquids with no nicotine in purely because they taste so good. I'm working my way down the "nicotine chain". Started at 24mg and now at 11mg. I imagine when I get down to 0mg, I'll still vape.

    My gran has a house and in South Africa Between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

    That's what the boyfriend did, but with cigarettes haha. He worked his way down to lighter and lighter cigarettes and then quit

    I'm always so excited when people come to South Africa or know people here. Most don't even know we exist

    my auntie used live in Cape Town although I have to admit I've only been once and that's when I was about 6/7. I haven't been back since she died in about 2005 but I would love to.
