Quick and Dirty: My Sordid History with Nicotine

I started smoking cigarettes at age 13. Last month I turned 27, and had been a smoker for most of my life. My two closest friends (Steve: a chemist, and Eric- vagabond poet and "artist's assistant") started vaping about a year ago. Steve while once a heavy smoker soon began to vape exclusively, and after finding successive juice mixtures each too strong found that he could do without the stuff altogether. He likes to say he "quit accidentally." And so I became the beneficiary of his happy accident when on my birthday last month he gifted me his pv collection.
Steve ordered juice samplers from a variety of online shops before hitting upon Gooey Goodness Cake from Parkes Vaping, and I have come to acknowledge this juice as as a superior concoction. Our friend Eric has been helping me learn the ropes. Although Eric still consumes analogues and finds vaping only moderately preferable to smoking, he makes diy juice and rebuilds atomizers as common practice. Eric turned me on to e-cigarette-forum.com (my first forum membership) and for this I am frequently grateful. I have learned much of the world of vaping (or "vaperverse" as I like to say) and have found in this forum a direct connection to the movers and shakers of an exciting and new industry. Never as a consumer have I been able to express my appreciation so directly, so please let me take this opportunity to do so:
Thank you e-cigarette-forum, the beautiful people at Parkes Vaping, Steve, Eric, and all of y'all on chat.
