    Hello all. As part of my 5 mandatory new member posts I offer this introduction.

    My name is Alex. I'm an English born, 42 year old, 27 year smoker now living in the united states. In May of 2012 I made the decision to try an e-cigarette, not to quit, merely to try and cut down, I was already down to 10 cigs a day from a pack and a half so I figured why not. I ordered a starter kit from volcano cigs with the Kona Coffee cartos and a bottle of liquid to refill them.

    To my surprise I found that I loved the device and stopped smoking entirely (almost, I have one occasionally). I used the volcano for about a month until I visited a local brick & mortar vendor in Cumming, GA, Awesomevapor. They set me up with an ego kit and I haven't looked back since.

    Ive started running again, I feel infinitely better, health wise and self esteem wise, I couldn't be happier.

    I hope to make some new friends here, that have had the same experience and I hope to stay involved in the community by extolling the benefits of vaping compared to smoking as the mis-information I have read from some in the medical profession, those who seem to believe I'm better off smoking, has made me realize just how important it is to fight to keep this product legal and available to anyone that doesn't want to die from smoking.

    Anyway, that's it. Thank you for the amazing community that has been set up here and I look forward to some great discussions.

    Hello Alex and welcome to the forum. Prepare yourself for a totally different cigartette free lifestyle. My whole outlook on smoking has changed. No longer am I the stinky gotta-run-out-for-a-smoke person. Have a great time posting here and we will help keep you on track.

    So a quick update. First, thanks for all the nice replies. I've graduated from the eGo to a provari. I have a DID genesis rebuildable but mainly use a Siam Mods tank and Boge cartos. I'm so glad I made the switch from Tobacco. Can't say I'm saving much money though!
