    Hi everyone. So I have completely quit tobacco and been vaping for 3 years. My main vice was pipe smoking and Skoal. I enjoy vaping and that's why I joined here. Still have the occasional cigar, but that doesn't count really does it? Hoping to learn a lot here and maybe make some buddies as well.

    Congrats!!! I'm in the same boat! Been lurking here for months but just finally registered (tonight lol). I was addicted to black -n- mild cigars for seven years, I was smoking two packs a day. That equals out to about $300 monthly, not to mention I was killing myself slowly. I finally woke up earlier this year and bought one of those disposable "hookas". That led me to my first ego starter kit, the kind with the atomizer and 1ml cartridges. From there there was no looking back! 7 clearomizers and several cartomizers later, and as of today strictly using carto tanks (love at first vape), I've never been happier and don't even remotely crave a cigar now. The smell actually nauseates me now. I feel so much healthier, I'm no longer winded, it feels great to take healthy deep breaths (or should I say VAPES!).

    Much happiness to you, you made the right move! :2cool:

    Welcome! Glad you found us. We don't berate ourselves here about if we decide to smoke or not. I think most everyone here is a glass half full crowd. You know... Oh Look at how many we didn't smoke today! So enjoy yourself, I know you will meet a bunch of great people :D

    Ohh you will be fine! If I could figure it out so can you! When I first got here.. I thought 'ohms' meant meditating. :facepalm: I admit I wasn't the brightest cookie in the jar that day. :D

    Hi guys, same here. Just that I'm still waiting for my kit to arrive, can't wait to switch to vaping. Its very contradicting that every time we light up we know that we are killing ourselves slowly, but yet when the urge comes, we just keep doing it...

    I feel the same way! Nothing is more fun than "Vape Mail"!!! I get crazy, tracking packages and tapping my feet looking out the window for the mailman, lol! Finally at a happy point where all I'm spending money on is cartos or coils, and maybe a battery every few months. And juice of course e-juice, DIYing my own juice is my next adventure. My pockets are happy compared to what I spent on analogs! Vape on folks, thanks for the warm welcome too.

    Hey Mark, Scranton Pa in the house!!! I used to DJ a club out there not too long ago, good times!
     
  16. Hahaha I hear you on the mail craze. I've spent nearly $500 on ecig "stuff" since I started ~4 months ago, but I still feel like I'm saving money because most of the stuff is durable and I don't feel like I'm flushing $6 down the drain every day. I just got an evic tonight, but due to an unfortunate vaping experience (see my other first post on here), I have yet to get the chance to enjoy it.

    I'm in the same boat as you guys. I joined ECF recently to benefit from the experience Ecig gurus , I find it useful and informative. I quit regular smoking 1 year ago , and since that time I'm enjoying vaping :vapor:
