Dont you think that our forum-based experience is part of our vaping habits?

    At least I DO consider that the online-sharing experience is a big part of our hobby. I would even go as far as to consider this part of the general vaping experience as such... Some sort of an enhancement; an extension of our puffing... There is even a "marriage", so to speak, between vaping and ECFing, right?

    Just wondering if you saw this the way I do...

    I'll agree, I spend way too much time here but find it not only informative but fun.

    It is like a family gathering without as much bickering.

    This place is great for a lot of reasons. So many good and helpful people who make the transition and vaping experience much easier. I especially like the legislation and media forums. Lots of good information there. (some of it can make you angry as well, when you begin to learn how corrupt various agencies really are)

    Yes, it is for me a big part of the experience. I wonder about those who take up vaping and otherwise go about their lives without dwelling here. It seems that may be possible.

    I think a huge part of it as well is the fact that PV's are mostly and online world thing. So keeping up with people, models and tips here becomes natural.

    It's an invaluable resource imo. A few smokers I know tried vaping and didn't take to it, and I think it's mostly because they just bought a cheap disposable from 7/11 or something, didn't think it worked too well (which of course it didn't) and just moved on (right back to smoking). I've tried clueing them in to better equipment and the learning process, etc, but they just don't seem to be stuck on their one bad experience.

    This is why I became a supporting member. If I've never found this place, I'd surely be smoking. I think complete smoke cessation, followed by unlimited social and technical support is definitely worth $24 ;)

    I have not been spending as much time here. I keep up with stuff but I have been seeing the same topics/questions over and over.

    Here are only a few examples:

    "this new carto is the best/worst thing ever"

    "my atty tastes burnt"

    "I am brand new and posted before reading any thread, what PV should I get first without supplying any information about what I am looking for in a PV"

    "people that don't vape are silly and or ignorant"

    I've been battling on and off with analogs, and cut down from at least 20 a day to 10 a day, and now I'm going to ditch analogs completely. Funnily, the 2 or 3 times I've quit for around a week, I've been on ECF daily. Whenever I've struggled it's when I've been away from ECF. I don't think it's a coincidence, because everyone always says that the biggest thing with quitting analogs (inside or outside the vaping world) is support, and that is what ECF gives in spades.

    I firmly believe that I would save a TON OF MONEY if I could drag myself away from this forum.

    This forum has definitely shaped every facet of my vaping experience. I got incredible insight by lurking before ordering my first bunch of stuff. I've found deals that were almost unbelievable compared to what is the going rate for juices, attys etc. I've spent more money and sampled more flavors, good and bad, than I ever would have without ECF. I long for a mod but am happy on my Ego clones. I watch endless fiddling with clearomizers, wondering how far this hobby takes us into minutiae.

    I watch member suppliers gather together when one lets users down and make them whole. I watch PIF activity with such a sharing spirit I'm amazed. I enter contests and even won some stuff! I watch repetitive noob questions and occasional flames get handled respectfully almost all the time.

    The real addiction after analogs are gone is ECF, not nicotine!

    You just haven't been to the jOker or Snail thread.

    And, of course, I'm not hooked. :facepalm:

    Most Vets tend to stray to the outside, lounge, or the social groups. A lot of fun to be had there!

    ECF, IMO, is an invaluable site .. when I got really serious about quitting the analogs, I don't believe I would have been successful had I not stumbled on ECF .. honestly ..

    My initial experience with a PV was less than good, to put it mildly .. however, the advice given to me by other Forum members in making that PV usable until I could decide what would be a good "upgrade" kept me from throwing in the towel .. and now, I am analog free for about 3 months ..

    As well, just knowing there is a community of like minded folks that, for the most part, are helpful, courteous and willing to share their experience is a great boost for a "newbie" and a "quiter" .. it's a support system in and of itself ..

    I had a heart attack 3 years ago and the first thing I did when I got home from the hospital was light up a Marlboro, in front of my 32 year old son .. true story ..

    So, my hats off to any group that can help us addicts, because we're really all in this thing together ..
