    Talking New VIP S.G. Members Introduce Yourself!

    I've asked several new members to introduce themselves... then I remembered :light bulb clicks to ON: most of our new members can't start a new thread until the post count goes up.

    So... if you haven't taken the time to introduce yourself here in this thread (even you "ol' timers" can give a bit of your history and if you already did in another thread, please feel free to post again here so new folks can get to know you as they join!). Please don't be shy if you are new... go ahead and post here after you join!

    Some ideas are to tell how you found e-cigs and what model you started with/what you use now. Also interesting is if you have quit smoking, how you found the ECF, what you do for a living, how long you have been vaping, why you picked your Avatar and hobbies or activities you enjoy. No limits or requirements, just tell us what ever you would like us to know about you.

    Don't forget to check out all the other threads in our VIP Social Group Forum when you have time to get the details about our monthly get together, see pictures and figure out our members (good luck there...). It is a motley crew of great Zonies.

    Welcome to VIP!

    Hi All!

    I've been vaping for about a month with a 901dse and have been "analog" free since. I across the ECF while researching ecigs before buying one. I am glad the hours of research paid off by allowing me to come across this local group that share the same interests.

    My hobbies include vaping, drinking, hiking, fishing, target shooting, gaming, and cooking.

    I look forward to attending the next meeting!

    Howdy Pilgrim,

    I run The UPS Store at the nw corner of Gilbert Rd & McKellips.

    I was an anolog and pipe smoker for 45 years. When the prices of anologs hit $50.00 I started RYO. Then our new President raised the taxes on RYO tobacco 600%. Now understand the only difference between RYO tobacco and Pipe tobacco is the way the leaf is cut and pipe tobacco taxes where not raised????? Our government at work!!!

    So I started RYO pipe tobacco along with smoking my pipes. Then one of my customers comes into the store sucking on this weird thing. I asked her want it was and she showed me an Njoy. That started me researching and I found ECF which led me to VIP in Phoenix. I now have several 901s, 801s, 601s (trashed my 701 cigars) and a Prodigy. And as you can see from the bottom of my post have been off real tobacco for a little while now.

    This e-cig thing is really starting to become my favorite hobby. I am DIY'n my own juice and really enjoying the whole process.

    Hello Fellow Vapers,

    My husband FishStyx and I Tammietutu have been analog free for 14 days now! We are loving it.

    We have been smokers for 25 years and the raise in taxes on cigarettes did it for us, as well as our son of 12 years bugging us to quit smoking, signed the deal! We both feel much better, and are enjoying trying out new flavors.
    We use the 510 and it seems to work well. (Thanks to Terraphon for his reviews and suggestions. He is the one who led us to the 510 and this forum.) We are planning on getting the smokers in our family on board with the e-cigs as well.
    We are computer geeks, and love to watch movies and are avid readers, campers, and like playing poker and video games!

    We look forward to meeting you all soon, and thanks for having us in the VIP Club.

    Hey Tammie (tutu, LOL) and FishStix (more lol) WELCOME.

    S.W. Phoenix? I'm in Surprise and Terraphon is about 2 miles from me as well. Where are you at?

    Hope you can make our next meeting. Date hasn't been set yet (waiting to talk to Hazelwood's on Monday). Check the VIP forum often for the new thread announcing the date.

    Arrow Hello Everyone

    HI.. I'm so glad to have found this forum,

    I was interested in Ecigs from some radio advertisement I had heard ... and luckily this forum pointed me in the right direction so that I didn't waste a bunch of money on inferior products that I had heard advertised on the radio...

    Thank E-cigarette-forum =)

    Alien's noobie spaceship landed in the wrong spot and they have been redirected to the new member's forum (they weren't looking to land in AZ).

    Default Hi

    Well where to start ---

    I have been smoking for 40 years with a combination of cigarettes and pipes. The last 15 it has been mostly pipes, using cigarettes only when a pipe wasn't convienient.

    I found e-cigs at the Chandler Mall, and talked to the Smoking Everywhere guy for a while. Fortunately, I didn't buy the $150.00 one that day, and did my homework first. After running accross the forum, I decided my first try should be a pen-style. Being the impatient type, I didn't want to order one and NJoy is close to where I work. Picked up a kit and immediately quit cigarettes. I don't expect that I will drop the pipes as smoking and collecting them has been a hobby for many years. (Unlike the cigarettes, I actually enjoy the pipes.)

    Found out real quick that one isn't nearly enough. I started buying batteries and attys, and now have 3 pen-styles and 3 901s. I am smoking zero nicotine and am a chockoholic so you can guess my flavor of choice.

    I hope to make one of the meetings, as it would be great to talk to more expierienced e-smokers and the opportunity to meet a couple of the local vendors.

    Bob
