30. Congratulations! I considered the eGo but it's a bit too pricey for me now
and it seemed it would be a little too big but the good thing is, that there are parts that are interchangeable with the 510. This way, if in the future I want to, I could go to the eGo.

I bought Marl B flavor and it does remind me of Marlboro. :) I don't like Dunhill cigarettes and have been thinking about the Benson and Hedges. Until the real Benson and Hedges went up so much in price, I smoked their ultra lights for years.

It seems a lot of people at the e-cig forum like the flavored stuff (vanilla, coconut chocolate, etc) and that seems to turn me off.

Best of luck!!!!!!
