    Default I'm new, obsessed and addicted, hi!

    Greetings everyone! Just thought I would say hi. I have been browsing the forum for ages on my tablet but I had trouble posting, so now here I am in front of my iMac just posting to introduce myself!

    My sister introduced me to ecigs and its been quite a couple of weeks. I have been smoking roll ups for nearly 20 years (Im 34 now) and wanted to quit. Problem is, that I love smoking and wasn't ready to stop. I bought a cheap e-cig from the local newsagent and hated it, it tasted disgusting and looked like a cigarette, which I didn't like either because I've never smoked 'proper' cigarette's - too expensive!

    After speaking to my sister I went to Brightons ecig shop, The Vapour Trail (which is a part of Totally Wicked) and picked up a statrer kit, which was a 650 battery with a tank plus some liquids (they cost 5 each for liquids, but they do a 3 for 2 offer)

    I really liked the sensation. I recently gave up alcohol as well and as such have quite a lot of disposable income. In the following week I bought a 1300mah Vision Spinner with a Davide Mini tank, which I think are great. Being the sort of person that I am, I quickly researched into the best that there is to offer, which is by all accounts the ProVari. I am buying one in the next couple of weeks.

    Just wanted to tell my story so far, its going to be a very enjoyable journey I suspect, and I just wanted to say hi to everyone, and also thank you for all the info that I have picked up so far!

    Right, I'm off to the classified section now to see if I can pick up any bargains.

    Thanks for reading, much love! x

    Hi! I'm Claire, I'm new as well. Vaping is so much fun, although it is hard when none of your friends vape and they're all still smoking cigarettes, so congratulations on taking the step! Good luck

    Thanks Claire! Yes, I'm still in the stage of my friends taking the p*ss out of me, although I personally think that in the next 5 years everyone will be vaping! Have fun with your adventures

    I smoked for 38 years....started vaping 4 months ago and have had a half of a cig since. Amazing stories on here! Watch out for all of that disposible income. If you are like me you'll be spending it on every ecig toy you can find!

    Thanks guys. Theres a real community feel to this place and thats a great thing.

    Yes Thunderball, giving up on the booze is difficult, and probably causing more puffs on the vapour as a result!

    Welcome Longusto! I too gave up the booze, many years ago. I tell people that I quit because I liked it too much. I started smoking at age 12 and am now 61 (how did that happen? ) I tried quitting using many of the well known methods and just couldn't do it. That is until I was introduced to vaping.

    You're right, it is a very enjoyable journey!

    You sound like you are on the typical track of the enamored vapor! I'm obsessed too, it's been a little over 2 months since I started vaping and had my last nauseating analog. For me it's been much more expensive than smoking initially but I think my hardware buying is done for awhile and I'm making my own juices so that helps a lot. I started out with a cigeasy kit, two weeks later bought 3 ego twists, then bought a few more which I really didn't need and then a big collection of cartos and clearos. I had troubles with my cigeasy and ego's and then decided what the heck I'll get a provari. I love my provari but I don't regret getting the other stuff first. I still use my cigeasys when I go out and about and to test small amounts of my DIY. Although I don't drink a lot of alcohol, the drinks I was addicted to were coffee and soda... Then that just went away and I don't drink them anymore. I didn't even try or intend for that to happen and it's a mystery why that happened but it did. You may find you don't miss the alcohol at all!
