Well, 30ml in reserve for a beginner is a good guess, but ideally it will be of several different flavors. Unless you are sure you like it, buying 30ml of one flavor could be a mistake when starting out. Five 10ml bottles of different mixes would be excellent - and ten 5ml bottles is even better because it gives you 10 chances of getting it right. People's taste varies widely. The average user consumes between 2ml and 3ml per day, so you can maybe work it out from that. Heavy users can go through 5ml a day or more. After a week or two you will probably find that you need a lot more liquid than you thought. As a rough guide, 2.5ml of liquid equals 15 cigarettes, 1 standard carto (KR8) = 6 cigarettes, 1 standard cartridge (510) = 4 cigarettes.
