    Started this little thread so I could feel cool and sticky something!

    This is a place for members to tell us a little about themselves and how they became vapers in America's favorite playground.

    I will start!

    I am Wafflestomper. I am a 36 year old nurse living in Henderson, married to a school teacher. I started smoking when I was 18, surprisingly enough NOT due to the yummy flavors or "marketing towards children".

    It was a struggle on and off, because I liked to smoke. Not necessarily smoking for the sake of smoking, but because I liked good tobacco, cigars, pipes etc. But due to my partying ways, it wasn't long before analogues became a crutch.

    I quit on and off for years. I really wanted to enjoy smoking good tobacco, but always found that it lead to analogues.

    Later I discovered Cloves and things got a bit better. I was able to enjoy the various clove styles and somehow, it led to an aversion to standard analogues, and I was only smoking them for enjoyment, not for habit.

    Then the FDA came along and decided, "Hey... these guys are cutting into Big Tobacco's profits" and decided to include them in the ban.... Out of sheer anger at not being able to have a say in what I put in my body... I went to the smoke shop and bought every last pack of Cloves that I could afford.

    Then I started smoking them... again, like analogues. Not willing to go back to standard analogues, I saw a SE Kiosk at the Belz mall, and decided they were way too much freaking money. Knowing human are the way they are, I figured there has to be a better ecig out there, and for cheaper...and I know some of us are modding them.

    Thats when I found ECF and bought my first mods. The Protege and the Prodigy V2 and the rest is history.

    Now I spend way more than I ever did on smokes, but feel better, am more active, and have fewer aches pains, lethargy and stomach problems than ever before.

    Hey I'm Chris. I'm a 27 year old teacher in Las Vegas. I started vaping in March of 2010. I smoked for 9 years, and accidentally quit when I bought an e-cig for an airplane trip.

    My story...hmm
    I am the walrus...? lol

    Well, I'm 24 years old, unemployed 3d artist, and have lived in Vegas my whole life.

    I started smoking when I was around 8 years old, stealing packs from my dad and keeping the habit from my parents pretty well. Around 16 I came out with it and from there until I was 22 or so I dealt with the constant guilt trips from my family.

    Eventually quit smoking (sorta) with chantix but I couldn't stay away once the pills were gone and I was just a horrible person to be around without my nicotine, so I went back to my smokey treats.

    One day one of my friends mentions something about electronic cigarettes, and I think "Hey! This could work, it's my cake without the calories!" Bought one on my 23rd birthday online after sampling the product at a Kiosk, rn4081 from smokingeverywhere. After that device proved to be fairly crappy but a good proof of concept, I researched here and all over the net, eventually got a 510, and the rest is history.

    Ironically the same friend who mentioned Ecigs is one of the least open to them.

    Has he tried it? I notice everyone has a poo poo face when Im smoking these in front of em. Then they try it and they're just jealous. Could be just jealousy. There IS a little something missing from vaping tho. The whole "I know it's bad for me but do I give a crap? Besides the ladies love it." attitude that makes you look so cool when you smoke. But I don't want cancer!

    I'm 25, also unemployed, but I'm a pot headed musician so that goes without saying.

    Started smoking freshman year of High School. I lived in Reno and at Reno High school they had off-campus lunch. Started smoking to break out of my nerd clique and since it worked like a charm, I never went back. Cigarettes were the best thing to happen to me. Who knows where I'd be without em. I might still be a virgin!

    Moved to Vegas at 15. I also bought the Smoking Everywhere peice of crap. I was ready to dismiss the whole concept and keep smoking. I saw a youtube video of someone showing off the DSE801 and I had to have it. When I got it I was disappointed, but after stumbling upon these forums I KNEW there had to be something good enough for me out there.

    Now I use my 5v passthrough and prodigy v1 with a 3.7 battery. Wish I could go 6v but it'll have to wait. Still use the 801 attys. Tried the 510 and don't really get why people like em.

    It's been two weeks and I'm not even halfway through my 2nd pack of cigarettes. Basically right when I was able to buy em myself I started smoking a pack a day. Now I smoke a pack a week. I still need one when I wake up and sometimes after food or women.

    Great... Looks like I get to be the old man here....

    I'm not used to that.. always went through life being "The Kid"... Oh well.

    What do you play Heisenberg?

    I used to be a fairly accomplished Fiddle player...and guitar/bass to a mediocre degree. I got stupid and chose a "stable" profession as opposed to something I love and enjoy... worst mistake I ever made.

    I play drums mainly. I also play guitar. I can mess around on a piano, but still learning. The only instruments I could never learn are wind instruments, which I dont care for anyway except for.....the HARMONICA! Every time I tried to get good at it I would almost pass out. My face would be all red and stuff. Maybe after a year of vaping I'll be able to play the blues on a harmonica. Though maybe not. Whoever heard of the non-smoking blues man? I guess it's just in my genes. Not meant for blues harp or singing.

    Anything with strings I'm golden.... I also can't wrap my brain around wind instruments. Had a long and painful relationship with a saxophone one time... wasn't pretty.

    I'm such a hasbeen, I don't know if anything I play anymore is what a real musician would call "playing".

    On the fiddle and upright bass I liked to play bluegrass and texas swing.
    On the bass guitar, I liked to play just about anything.
    On the guitar I like blues.
